Reflexologist and Foot Reader
Body Spirit and Sole Reflexology and Foot Reading
Reflexology in Cumbria
This relaxing complementary therapy works reflexes within the feet or hands, which in turn correspond to every part of the body. Each treatment incorporates aspects to support the conditions you may be presenting with. Although treatment is medically focused, it is still holistic in nature, encompassing the needs of the whole body, spirit and soul. A reflexologist cannot claim to cure or diagnose, but will work with you to identify how they can best help you.
My own style of reflexology is very gentle, but can also feel very powerful and soothing. Everyone responds differently to this therapy, but you can generally expect to feel quite relaxed after a treatment. Following your initial consultation I will produce an individual treatment plan for you, designed to work with whatever your own needs are. In this way, I can work with you to ensure that you get the very most out of each session.

About Me - Alison Dear MAR
Alison Dear - specialising in providing Maternity and Fertility reflexology, Reflexology Lymph Drainage (to support symptoms of lymphoedema), Precision Reflexology and Foot Reading in the Crosby Ravensworth, Penrith, Eden Valley and Cumbria area.
I have worked in healthcare and as a practitioner in the NHS for over 25 years, coming to work as a reflexologist more recently following a long search to find the new direction I knew I wanted to follow. Even when training, I took a while to be convinced that being a reflexologist really could offer everything I had read about. It is fair to say I was quite a sceptic to begin with, but as time went on I learned more and devoured every book I could find on the subject. These days, I am still realistic, but no longer a sceptic. I have seen so many amazing responses to my chosen therapy that I am in no doubt it is an incredible resource to call on.
Qualifying as a Level 3 Reflexologist allows me to be registered with the Association of Reflexologists, Professional Reflexology, and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). Anyone wishing to work within the NHS must be CNHC registered. Since qualifying, I have undertaken further training to specialise in Fertility and Maternity Reflexology, Cancer and Palliative care, Precision Reflexology, and Foot Reading. Reflexologists are required to undertake training each year to extend our skills, which ensures I keep up to date and practise new ideas regularly.
