Hello and welcome..
I’m Jenny, mum of two girls and the proud owner of Jenny Lockyer Reflexology. I offer Reflexology from my home treatment cabin in Clayhall Road not far from Stokes Bay seafront.
Reflexology is a wonderful non invasive, complementary therapy which can be effective in promoting deep relaxation, an improved sense of well being, aid sleep and help relieve tension.
I first tried Reflexology during my first pregnancy where I was feeling a lot of stress and overwhelm in my work and needed something to help me relax and manage my anxiety levels. It certainly achieved that and so much more.
Finding myself continually singing the praises of reflexology I decided to follow my passion and study to become a reflexologist myself.
With many of us living such busy and stressful lives it is our responsibility to take time to look after our own health and wellness. Reflexology is an incredible way to put this into action and start taking care of you.
I hold a VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology, and I am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists. Continual study and professional development is very important to me so do keep a look out for more treatments coming soon.
I look forward to welcoming you to my treatment space.
I have a VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology which I studied at Calming Influences Holistic Training School, Bursledon taught by the wonderful Jackie James. My studies took place over a year and included 100 case study treatments, three practical assessments, two anatomy and physiology exams, and a portfolio of coursework and evidence.
I am also fully trained in Facial Reflexology after completing a Facial Reflexology VTCT accredited course at Calming Influences Holistic Training School. This was 20 hours CPD course and a requirement of 12 case study treatments.
What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary therapy that can be effective in promoting deep relaxation and wellbeing. It is a touch therapy that is based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears (reflexes) correspond with different areas of the body and reflexologists work these points and areas.
Would reflexology be suitable for me?
Reflexology is a therapy which can be received by anyone at any age, from newborn babies to those receiving end of life care, and everyone in between. However, there may occasionally be times when it is not suitable to provide a treatment. Please do get in touch and ask if you are unsure and I’ll be happy to discuss.
How many sessions are needed?
A single treatment can be deeply relaxing but for the most beneficial results a course of 6 treatments is recommended to restore balance across the body. After this a regular maintenance treatment would be recommended.
If you choose to book a course of treatments, it is recommended the minimum interval between treatments is one week and up to a maximum of 4 weeks to ensure your treatment program can take full effect.
Will reflexology help me?
As a reflexologist I do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe. Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your wellbeing. Some people find it works for them – some don’t. The best way to find out is to try it!
The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally. Usually, after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving. You may also find that other aspects improve too; however, this happens on an individual basis.
With ever increasing levels of stress in everyday life, it is important for people to take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs. Reflexology may be one of the ways to help mitigate the stresses of modern life.
Please note: reflexology should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice.
What happens when I go for a treatment?
I will ask you to complete a medical history form and consent form prior to your first treatment, this information will be kept confidential. Reflexology is a very easy therapy to receive and it is recommended that you arrive in comfy clothing. The most clothing that will have to be removed for a treatment to take place will be your socks and shoes.
(If you are coming for Facial Reflexology then it is advised to wear a top you do not mind getting oil on or a strappy top that you can pull the straps down this allows me access to your neck and shoulders for part of the treatment).
During your treatment I will use my hands to apply pressure to the feet, lower leg, hands, ears or face, depending on the type of reflexology chosen. You may feel some areas of slight discomfort (tenderness) during the treatment, but generally the experience should be relaxing.
How will I feel after a reflexology treatment?
After your treatment you will likely feel a sense of well being and relaxation. Sometimes particularly after your first treatment you may experience a healing response;
This is a transitory response and will only last a short time (24-48 hours) after which a general sense of well being will follow.
Following your treatment I will go through aftercare advice to help maximise the effects of your treatment and provide you with a card to refer to.
To get the best from your treatment I recommend that following your treatment you;
