Throughout March, I welcomed new clients into the clinic for Reflexology Taster Sessions in exchange for donations to Deal’s ‘Talk It Out Group’.
Last week I met Tracy Carr, (the former Mayoress of Deal and currently the driving force behind the Mental Health Support groups in our local community), the local MP Charlie Elphicke, and the local press, as I went to hand over my fundraising money. A total of £155 raised after many hours of giving Reflexology to many feet and toes!
Over the years, Tracy has set up several support groups where people in the local community can meet together over a cuppa and quite literally ‘Talk it Out’, and offer one another support. There is now a weekly group in Sandwich, and a daily run Wellbeing café hub in a secluded room within the Landmark Centre. This also offers a private room for a voluntary counselling service, along with craft activities in the main room, form filling and computer/tech help.
As soon as I entered the room as a stranger, I was made to feel welcome by everyone, and was amazed at how open everyone was. They all had their own stories to share with me and I left feeling like a friend.
Tracy, along with her volunteers and the power of an MP behind her, is tirelessly pushing the system to get results for our community. People in desperate need contact her every evening for support as no one else will listen.
With no new funding coming, suicide rates soaring especially in young men, and social services stretched to the max with funding cuts, I know that the money I raised will be the best gift I can give back to my town.
If you would like to donate to ‘Talk it Out’, please follow the link:
Lots of you prefer the comforts of your own home during a treatment and as added bonus there is no drive home afterwards!
As a special treat for you, home visits are now the same price as clinic ones at £40!

Adrenal fatigue is a common symptom of the menopause. It makes women feel deeply exhausted even though they haven’t done a great deal of physical activity. If not dealt with properly, can worsen and greatly impact on your day-to-day life.
- Progesterone hormone affects the part of the brain that causes a woman to feel sleepy, as progesterone levels drop, there is difficulty falling asleep. This may manifest as insomnia which can lead to fatigue during the daytime. Progesterone regulates sleep induction. With the steep drop in progesterone levels that occurs between 35-50, insomnia or other sleep disturbances are reported as a consequence.
- Maintain a regular wake up and bed time schedule
- Establish a relaxing bedtime routine
- A comfortable mattress
- Keep bedroom dark and cool
- Use your bed only for sleep or sex
- Refrain from eating at least two hours before bedtime
- Exercise regularly – including yoga or Thai chi
- Avoid caffeine, nicotine, alcohol and sugar
- Alkaline forming foods can help (Click HERE for list of Alkaline Foods)
- Figs, Beets, Leafy greens, Almonds, Dates, Parsley …..all beneficial in fighting fatigue, these foods have been shown to balance blood pH levels and boost energy.
Regular Reflexology treatments can aid balance of hormones and can help with your journey through the menopause. If you would like to know more about how this may help you personally, please contact Maria who will be happy to answer any questions.

This time of year there are so many coughs, colds and bugs going around. I’m always in favour of a natural remedy as opposed to over the counter ones. As they say, “nature has all we need”, and our body will thank us for it.
Winter sore throat “tea”.
In a jar, combine lemon slices, organic honey and sliced ginger. Close jar and put it in the fridge, it will form into a “jelly”. To serve: Spoon jelly into mug and pour boiling water over it. Store in fridge 2-3 months.
If you have ongoing illness or feel run down, Reflexology may be beneficial to assist in the effectiveness of the immune system by improving circulation of lymph around the body, detoxing the system, reducing stress and re-balancing.
