The origins of our global pharmaceutical industry stem from the most basic of plant life that are then synthetically mass produced for their benefit to the healthcare industry. This has of course regulated the way illness is treated clinically but along the way holistic care has been lost in many areas of conventional medicine. This is why after many years of working in the pharma industry Lorna took a step back and decided to explore other avenues of healthcare.
scientific roots and a need to find a complementary therapy with robust
research behind its efficacy Lorna decided to focus on Reflexology. She
completed her Diploma with Distinction through the well respected Irish school
of Reflexology under the tutorship of Tatiana Grosso and Sr. Brega Whelan.
The human foot is a strong and complex
mechanical structure. Each foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100
muscles, tendons and ligaments. Our feet tell the story of our lives that we
have lived. Always look after your feet and do not neglect them. If you are having problems with your feet always speak with your family doctor or chiropodist. They will give you the best advice on treating corns, ingrown nails and fungal infections.
The ever changing characteristics of the feet provide valuable clues as to our inner needs. Each foot is unique as is each person who comes for treatment. Having regular reflexology treatments will keep the body in a more healthy and balanced state.
Hand Reflexology works on the same principle as foot reflexology. It can be used as an alternative in situations where there is neither time nor space to work on the feet. It is also useful if someone has a broken bone or injury to the foot as well as times when there may be a foot infection. It can be a useful tool as homework post foot reflexology in order to maintain optimum wellness.
