My name is Natalie Clayton and I am a registered midwife. I live in Raunds, Northamptonshire with my 4 children and partner.
I discovered reflexology by accident, and it was only after a discussion I had with someone who had experienced it that I became intrigued. I researched reflexology and discovered that there was so much more this therapy could offer to everyone and anyone. I, therefore, embarked on the journey to becoming a qualified reflexologist.
I have now continued with my journey and advanced my knowledge of other treatments and services that I can provide to promote wellbeing for everyone.
As a fully qualified reflexologist and a member of the Association of Reflexologists (AOR), I treat holistically by using reflexology therapy to encourage general health and wellbeing. By using techniques using the fingers and thumbs to apply pressure to differing reflex points on the feet or hands that represent the different parts of the body, this aims to encourage relaxation, to release any tension and stress the body is holding onto, as well as improve sleep and restoring balance in the body. This encourages improvement in general health and wellbeing by working holistically. I have also been taught techniques to work the lymphatic system which may help with lymphatic conditions.
As a midwife, I am a specialist in maternity, having completed an Advanced Maternity Reflexology Level 8 course. With my midwifery experience, I have seen many conditions that can cause tension and stress on the body during pregnancy and really want to help ladies feel more comfortable and relaxed using reflexology. Not only can it help those that are pregnant but after birth as well. Once the baby has arrived, reflexology and massage therapy can encourage relaxation which may improve sleep and encourage the body to relieve any stress.
Wellbeing in general has become part of my passion and knowledge base and have transferred this to my services that I offer.
Please feel free to contact me for further information.
I hope you are all well and keeping safe. These are very uncertain times and has been quite scary. As a midwife, I am fully aware that the safety of both the person I am caring for and myself are paramount to reduce the risk of spreading this virus. A lot of work has been going on in the background to return to work as a reflexologist. As a Full Member of the Association of Reflexologists (AOR) and a responsible practitioner, I am following the Government's guidelines (as are the AOR) and will be returning to work as soon as The Government announces it is safe to do so. Advanced notice will be given of my opening date.
There will be a few changes about how treatments will be carried out going forward. Here is how things will change:
Please be assured that after each client my treatment room and equipment will be fully cleaned and sanitized prior to the next client.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please keep safe. These are uncertain times and what better way to help relax and de-stress than having a reflexology treatment. Look forward to seeing you all soon.
