Fertility and Maternity Reflexology in Cumbria
Reflexology is a relaxing complementary therapy that works reflexes within the feet or hands, which in turn correspond to every part of the body. Fertility treatments incorporate specific aspects of care to support the stress infertility presents, whilst also considering other presenting conditions. 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 usually 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. Occasionally in order to help your body respond, you may experience some discomfort; I will guide you as to when this is likely. 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.
I hold full registration with the Association of Reflexologists and Professional Reflexology. Additional skills and qualifications include Fertility Reflexology (Reproflexology) with Barbara Scott, 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. As lead tutor with Evolution Reflexology College the only Level 5 Clinical Reflexology College in Cumbria, I am proud to be training new learners who are helping raise awareness of the power and effectiveness of reflexology in everyday health and well-being.
