The term ‘homeostasis’ refers to a balanced state in the body and mind. Our health depends on all the thousands of parts of our body and mind working in synchronisation together. Too much strain in a particular area can knock our whole system out of balance. At times we can feel out of balance, ungrounded, or just out of sorts, but reflexology can help bring back homeostasis.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy based on the belief that there are reflex areas in the feet, hand, face and ears which are believed to correspond to all organs and parts of the body. Reflexology works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension.
During a typical reflexology session the reflexologist will take a detailed medical history. Sessions are usually performed in a comfortable chair or couch. If it is to be performed on the feet, the client will be asked to remove footwear and socks but other forms of reflexology require no removal of clothing. The practitioner will make a visual and tactile examination of the area to be worked before beginning the precise reflexology movements. The particular types of movements involved require the application of an appropriate pressure using the thumb and fingers.
Reflexology is a wonderfully relaxing experience where you can take time out from everyday pressures. The therapists expert touch will help you relax which can help improve mood, aid sleep and relieve tension. The result is an overall sense of wellbeing.

I have always had an interest in complementary therapies having had regular reflexology treatments throughout the years. However my career took me in a different direction where I worked in the private and public sectors, working in restaurants and HR. During this time I continued to have reflexology treatments as they always helped support me, especially during hectic periods of my life. Recently I have taken a complete change in career and retrained to become a Reflexologist, having trained with the International Institute of Reflexologists and learnt the original Ingham Method.
I have also taken the opportunity to undertake more advanced learning in reflexology and was personally trained by the internationally renowned Ziggie Bergman, "Facial Reflexologist to the stars", and I'm now able to offer Facial Reflexology and the amazing Zone Face Lift™ treatments to my clients.
Reflexology is a wonderful way of maintaining your body's healthy balance and general wellbeing, reducing the stresses and tensions that come with busy lifestyles and giving us a space to reflect on the mind as well as the body.
Reflexology can induce a deep state of relaxation, which improves the effectiveness of the treatment. Relaxing helps relieve tension and aids circulation, increasing the flow of nutrients, oxygen and energy to all parts of the body, and helping with the removal of toxins.
While it is not a cure, Reflexology can be particularly helpful in managing many health conditions, especially constant or recurring ones that we might have come to accept over time as being a normal part of life.
I am proud to offer the exclusive Zone Face Lift™ treatment which was developed by Ziggie Bergman after many years practicing reflexology and studying with Native American shaman and healers in New Mexico. The Zone Face Lift™ combines traditional reflexology methods and ancient healing techniques from Native American shamans and uses pressure-point massage, with sacred healing herbs, Asian body mapping and crystals to create 'Zone Face Lift™'.
Throughout the treatment you will experience the use of hot towels to help open pores and stimulate blood and lymph circulation and gua sha and rose quartz tools to help massage and smooth the skin to release muscle tension and tightness of the face. Also used during the treatment is the 100% organic Zone Face Lift™ Elixir created by Ziggie, harnessing American sacred plants and therapeutic botanicals.
This treatment is renowned for removing as much as 10 years over the 12 week programme which lifts the face and spirit. Zone Face Lift™ will leave you feeling blissed-out, with a smoother face to match.
“Peter is very calm and professional, not knowing quite what to expect I was pleasantly surprised. I left feeling completely relaxed and have been back many times since my first treatment.”
“I have had an 8 week treatment programme of Reflexology with Peter and the results were amazing. I felt more energised as I was sleeping better at night and stopped waking up several times throughout the night. Peter was very knowledgeable about reflexology and was able to teach me things about my own body that I didn't know before and explained clearly how the feet muscles connected to other parts of the body.”
“I began having reflexology with Peter when I was 28 weeks pregnant, and continued with weekly treatments until I was at my due date.
The treatment room is very relaxing and Peter put me at ease straight away. I was having anxiety attacks, regular nose bleeds and suffering with bad pelvic girdle pains. Although my issues couldn't be cured, I quickly noticed a massive improvement.
Peter would always check on me the following day, to see how I was feeling after my treatment. I can not thank Peter enough for the treatments he gave me, he made a hard and very uncomfortable pregnancy a lot more bearable. I would not hesitate to recommend Peter to friends and family.”
