"The i in illness is isolation, the crucial letters in wellness are we" Unknown
I am a qualified practitioner in yoga, nutritional therapy and reflexology.
I use all three practices to help my clients achieve true wellness, which I see as our bodies and minds being in true harmony.
My chosen disciplines reflect my approach to wellness - yoga gives us not only physical control and strength but also the opportunity to reconnect mind, body and soul. Reflexology helps to rebalance and restore through gentle physical stimulation. Nutritional therapy helps our bodies to gain the right nutrition to support our optimum wellbeing.
Each individual discipline brings its own qualities to the pursuit of wellness, together they are a powerful combination.
I am a member of the Association of reflexologists (AOR) and a qualified Nutritional Therapist (NHF Adv. Dip.)
I am also a yoga teacher qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga and the Yoga Alliance on the 200 hour diploma courses. I undertake regular short courses in all three therapies including Vertical and nerve reflexology and I am currently studying towards the 500 hour qualification with the Yoga Alliance.Sophia
Over the years, yoga has become an integral part of my life, both physically and mentally, supporting me through my personal journey. As a teacher I aim to share this and in combination with my knowledge of reflexology and nutrition help others to reach their full potential.
I have trained in Hatha, Restorative and Iyengar yoga styles and use elements of each style to create a tailored programme for my classes and retreats. Find out more about my yoga classes and retreats.
Reflexology is a non-invasive treatment that is usually practiced on the feet, lower leg, hands, nails and ears. It is based on the theory that by gently pressing different points in these areas it may be possible to stimulate a reaction in corresponding areas of the body.
Reflexology is normally a very enjoyable and relaxing process for all age groups. For many it helps to release tension and increase relaxation as well as aiding a restful sleep and an improved sense of wellbeing. Reflexology works well as a complementary therapy with conventional healthcare, encouraging the body to re-balance itself naturally.
Initial Consultation - takes 1 ½ Hours, cost £45. Further therapy sessions take 1 hour and are £40. To discuss a booking a reflexology session, please contact Sophia.
Nutrition is an underlying factor in many health complaints and often a slight adjustment in the diet can achieve lasting improvements to overall health and wellbeing. Nutritional therapy is based on the application of nutrition science, tailored to work with the needs of an individual to promote optimum health. After taking an in-depth case background, a program of dietary adjustments is suggested including supplements if recommended. Nutritional therapy is not intended to replace conventional medical treatments but works well as a complementary therapy alongside other healthcare.
