Geraldine Russell Reflexologist (VTCT level 3 Diploma and FHT registered)
Reflexology is a non-invasive therapy in which pressure is applied to the reflex points on the feet or hand aiming to bring those areas back to balance. It is a holistic treatment helping to rebalance the whole person – naturally restoring balance to the mind, body and spirit, helping with the stresses and strains of life and improving well-being.
As a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) my reflexology journey continues as I further study, complete courses and keep up to date so that I can continue to practise safely, effectively and legally and adhere to their strict code of ethics.
