Choosing a specialist in holistic foot health is a great option. You have a professional who is looking not just at your feet but at your health as it relates to what your feet are feeling
Awareness of whats a foot is the key to whats directly in front
What do I do?
Patricia is able to provide a more comprehensive & holistic treatment, tailored to specific individual needs for improving overall function of the feet, the mind and the body. Her studies of different cultures, traditions and philosophies, having travelled extensively to learn different healing modalities, she shares everything she has learnt for you to have good foot health, peace filled mind and an overall feeling of 'Great'.
Feet are a 'map' of the entire body. No Muscle, no gland, no organ whether internal or external is without a set of nerves whose opposite ends are anchored in the foot. And what does this mean? Simply that when we massage the feet we stimulate and effect all the rest of the body as well.
Your health relates to what your feet are feeling
Foot Health Treatments
Research has shown the specific techniques of reflexology to be effective & beneficial in many ways. A survey of 170 reflexology studies from 21 countries shows that reflexology is effective, impacting a variety of physical & psychological concerns.

The foot is an extremely complex anatomic structure made up of 26 bones and 33 joints that must work together with 19 muscles and 107 ligaments to execute highly precise movements. At the same time the foot must be strong to support more than 100,000 pounds of pressure for every mile walked. Even small changes in the foot can unexpectedly undermine its structural integrity and cause pain with every step.
With the added 7,000 nerve endings.
Reflexology therapy aims to stimulate the body's innate self-healing systems and meridians, thereby reducing anxiety & creating an optimal homeostatic condition to increase circulation, promote healing & improve wellbeing. Thus encouraging the body to use its intrinsic ability to heal itself and restore a natural balance, a holistic approach that is becoming widely recognised & respected in modern medical practice.
Your body is a microcosm that reflects the macrocosm. Think about it: nature has a regenerative capacity, and so do you. Sometimes, this ability may appear to be lost or difficult to access. In most cases, it is never completely gone.
Self Help Yourself
“Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” – Joshua J Marine.
