Reflexology in Poppleton, York, YO26 6PY

Reflexology for the body and mind

Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. I am a fully qualified and insured clinical reflexologist based in Poppleton, York.

My background

I have always known that I wanted to have a career or job which involved working with people and making a difference. My background is in primary education where I worked full time as a teacher whilst bringing up my 2 amazing children, pretty much most of the time as a single mum. I understand the “impossible balancing act” of juggling work and family life and the toll it can take on your health and wellbeing! I also know how difficult it can be to put yourself first and allow yourself the time and headspace to rest and recharge. Discovering the wellbeing benefits of regular reflexology and how it can support you and your family through life's ups and downs, inspired me to retrain as a reflexologist.

I have a Level 5 Practitioner Diploma in Reflexology which includes specialist training in fertility & maternity care, palliative care, stress and anxiety. I am trained in The Bergman Method of Facial Reflexology and I am a qualified practitioner and instructor in Gentle Touch Reflexology for Babies and Children. 

Emma Bateman, Reflexologist

I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, and I am DBS checked. As a member of a number of these professional bodies I am required to carry out a specific number of hours of “Continuous Professional Development” each year so watch this space for new therapies and specialisms I have to offer..

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is safe, non-invasive holistic treatment which stimulates the body’s own natural healing abilities to restore balance and well-being. Reflexology is based on the theory that the body and all its systems and organs is reflected in the feet, hands and head. By using a combination of special pressure techniques, a reflexologist can soothe or stimulate reflex points on the feet, hands, ears and face which correspond to all the systems and organs of the body to promote deep relaxation and wellbeing.
