H there! My name is Lisa McKenna and I currently manage a reflexology practice covering Norwich and South Norfolk providing mobile or clinic treatments.
I discovered the many benefits of reflexology first-hand when I was a stressed out NHS worker several years ago! I had always been interested in complementary therapy and by chance was introduced to the benefits of this amazing therapy. Reflexology, was for me, a door which helped me to begin to get off the vicious cycle of overwork and stress, by helping me to rest and renew on a deeper level. Current pressures we are subject to in our modern world create situations where our nervous systems are increasingly overstimulated to the point of overwhelm. If we can step back, allow some self care, a time for relaxation and nurture, we can begin to regenerate and connect with ourselves anew. Reflexology can help to soothe and calm our often frazzled nervous systems helping us to find ways towards a more holistic model of self care and way of developing effective stress management tools.
Reflexology has been shown to be particularly effective in treating stress-related disorders and may also be helpful during those times when we are experiencing big changes and feel the need to ground and protect ourselves a bit more than usual. Reflexology is an holistic therapy, and aims to treat the whole person, not the condition. Treatments can help to boost a sluggish immune system and stimulate the body's innate healing ability by improving circulation, reducing tension and pain while supporting and helping to restore the body's natural balance. Reflexology can also support the management of chronic health conditions by promoting greater wellbeing in mind, body and spirit.
I have over twenty years experience working in the NHS and Local Government in Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol services as a Social Worker, Manager and Professional Lead. I have always been interested in complementary therapies and holistic health and have found that the knowledge and skills I gained during my social work career, contribute to and greatly enhance, my reflexology practice. I also have training in counselling skills and am committed to enabling others to unlock their potential and find the tools within to support their own growth and healing. I am committed to continually updating and increasing my knowledge through regular CPD courses and research to ensure I am able to continue to provide the best quality service to all my clients
