Managing Menopause

Menopause is something all women would like to avoid, but unfortunately its going to sneak up on us whether we like it or not. For some of us it may be as early as 45.

Early symptoms are usually hot flushes, periods starting to become irregular, mood swings, feeling tired and listless, just to name a few.

This is the time we need to really focus on looking after ourselves, by maintaining a healthy weight. This means exercising every day even if its a 30 min walk, eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, reducing our intake of processed foods, and having at least two alcohol-free nights a week.

Being kind to ourselves and having the occasional splurge on a facial or a massage is highly recommended.

Having a positive attitude towards menopause and reminding yourself all the time that it is only going to last a short time will also help. Try not to listen to others if they tell you their symptoms lasted ten years.

Lastly, in my experience as a Reflexologist I have found that regular reflexology has definitely helped with some of the symptoms associated with menopause.

Cold and Flu Season

Are you always the one in the office with the cold and flu symptoms? Did you know that reflexology reduces stress and builds up your immune system, so that your body can fight off those winter germs?


Reflexology boosts the lymphatic function, improves circulation and detoxifies the body.


Also, washing your hands, eating healthy foods, increasing your zinc and Vitamin C intake, and getting plenty of exercise and fresh air will all help to keep those nasty germs under control.


Once the body becomes stressed, then the immune system is weak and generally sickness will follow. However regular reflexology and a healthy diet will help to keep you free of colds and flu this season.


Handy hint - If you do find yourself sick this winter with cold and flu symptoms then having someone massage either Vicks Vaporub or my famous cold and flu mix onto the balls of your feet will always ensure a restful night's sleep.
