My name is Zandra and I live in Witley. I offer a mobile reflexology service covering the local areas surrounding Haslemere and Godalming in Surrey.
I value the loyal relationships that I have established with my clients and endeavour to make each treatment memorable and fulfilling in the comfort of their own home.
Following a successful career in the airline industry, I qualified as a reflexologist with an ITEC Diploma Level 3 (Distinction). I am an insured member of the Association of Reflexologists and since having my two children, I have had an interest in holistic therapies, benefitting from them myself in recent years.
“If you are feeling out of kilter, don’t know why or what about, let your feet reveal the answers, find the sore spot, work it out.”
Eunice Ingham, the mother of modern reflexology
Reflexology is an ancient therapy that has evolved and developed over time and continues to do so.
The fundamental concept of reflexology is that the feet and hands are mirrors of the body, and that by applying direct pressure to specific points, the body can be restored to a state of homeostasis.
Any congestion or tension felt in the foot is reflected in the corresponding part of the body and presents itself in the form of tenderness and as crystals.
By dispersing these crystals, our bodies are free to return to a balanced state and can self-heal.
It is a gentle and non-invasive therapy and is suitable for all ages.
Reflexology can be very effective in helping with conditions such as;
- stress and anxiety
- sleep disorders
- PMS and hormonal imbalances
- digestive problems and IBS
- headaches and migraines
- sinus issues
- neck and back pain
- improving circulation
- energising and revitalising
I am trained in maternity reflexology, techniques for supporting women in their second and third trimester, through labour and beyond.
Pregnancy is a wonderful time and many women adjust perfectly to the vast hormonal changes that are taking place. However, there are other women who struggle with these physical and emotional changes. Regular reflexology treatments can help nausea, backache, digestive problems, fears and anxieties as well as insomnia, all ailments that are commonly associated with pregnancy.
Post 12 weeks, when the placenta is fully formed and any risk of miscarriage is greatly reduced, is the perfect time to begin incorporating regular reflexology treatments into your routine. These treatments can continue safely throughout your pregnancy and after your baby is born, benefitting and supporting you through your journey.
Stress is a key factor in fertility and therefore can be linked to conception issues and infertility. When a couple makes the conscious decision to start trying to conceive, they are already putting themselves under pressure, and over time this can lead onto stress which can have a detrimental effect on conception.
Another common contributing factor to infertility is a hormone imbalance in either the male or female. As well as being an incredibly relaxing and de-stressing treatment, reflexology can also help with rebalancing the hormones, creating a healthy environment for the egg and sperm. In taking time to relax and by allowing your mind and body to de-stress while specific reflex points on your feet are worked and by optimising your personal health and wellbeing, ensuring you sleep well and trying to avoid stress, you are giving yourself the best possible chance to conceive
For conception reflexology, it is recommended that both male and female of the couple are treated. I would recommend a course of 6 regularly spaced treatments to encourage the body back to its natural equilibrium and to restore hormonal balance followed by monthly restorative treatments approximately 3 days before ovulation.
Hot Stone Reflexology
Stone therapy and the benefits of massage using deep heat have been known and enjoyed for thousands of years. The combination of the two, incorporated in a reflexology treatment encourages the body and mind to fall into an even deeper state of relaxation.
Some of the benefits of reflexology using hot stones include:
- Better circulation and cell metabolism which encourages an efficient elimination of waste products and toxins from the body
- Reduction in muscle tension in the feet and lower legs
- Encourages the immune system to work more efficiently
- Promotes a deep state of mental and physical relaxation and as a result is an excellent de-stressor
The stones used for this treatment are natural, smooth basalt, a volcanic rock known for their heat retaining properties. They are iron rich and release heat into the skin and muscles in a controlled manner. The stones heat is regulated and they are only applied to the skin at a comfortable temperature. The treatment is fully portable thanks to a specially adapted heated plug in bag. The heat from the stones can penetrate to a much deeper level further enhancing the power of your treatment.
I am trained in mindful reflexology, techniques for supporting stress, anxiety and depression.
Stress is an almost unavoidable part of our modern lives and effects a growing number of people. Anxiety and depression present one of the greatest challenges that our society faces today.
Stress can be highly detrimental to the body and mind, and prolonged stress and anxiety can inhibit the body’s ability to fight disease and illness. Chronic worry and emotional stress can trigger a host of serious health issues.
Reflexology is a rebalancing therapy that enhances relaxation and allows the body to repair and regulate itself. Common conditions caused or aggravated by stress where reflexology can help include:
- Poor sleep
- Digestive disorders
- Low mood and anxiety
During your first treatment, I will allocate fifteen minutes to find out about you, your lifestyle, and your overall health and emotional well-being. This is followed by approximately one hour's treatment.
Following treatments will take approximately one hour.
You remain fully clothed, apart from your shoes and socks, then lie back on my comfortable reflexology chair and enjoy the treatment which is relaxing, calming and soothing.
As a reflexologist, I do not diagnose, prescribe nor claim to cure. It is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your well-being.
1 hour treatment £40. For couples or two appointments in one £70.
An hour’s hot stone reflexology is £50. For couples or two appointments in one £90.
"Reflexology with Zandra was a fantastic way to relax and de-stress in the final few weeks of my pregnancy. On a practical level, it helped me to manage my anxiety and the physical aches and pains of late pregnancy. Plus, with her comfy chair and snuggly blankets Zandra made my bedroom feel like a spa – with the added benefit that I didn’t have to go far to take a nap afterwards!"
"I have been having reflexology with Zandra for some time now and unhesitatingly recommend the treatment.
As a body focused psychotherapist I am very aware of how important feet are, both physically and emotionally, for grounding, balance, stability and strength. Yet we so often take them for granted until they cause us problems.
It seems to me that treatment to my feet is a gateway to the different areas of my body.
It can affect emotional, muscular, neurobiological, hormonal and mental states. Isn’t that amazing! So when Zandra focuses on an area of my foot it can release tension in my back; shift heaviness on my chest, or relax my whole body. Zandra is a very professional practitioner with a very nurturing style. Her reflexology is now part of my keep myself fit and healthy regime!"
