Reflexology

Vivian is a fully qualified Holistic Therapist and a professionally registered member of the FHT (Federation of Holistic Therapists).

When Vivian works with a client she likes to look at the client in holistic terms, looking at the person as an individual with physical, spiritual and emotional needs and what has brought them to her for a treatment. Vivian can draw from a wealth of experience both personally and professionally being trained in Aromatherapy, massage Reflexology and Indian Head Massage.

Vivian originally trained as a Beautician (Aesthetician and Physiatrist) in Lewes Sussex on leaving school, her life journey and a personal accident found her looking for alternative answers, Vivian discovered a love of  Essential Oils which lead to her training at The Tisserand Institute in London with world leading aromatherapist Robert Tisserand in 1998.

“Being a holistic therapist really makes my soul sing, supporting and seeing my clients transform on their personal journey is such a privilege.”

Reflexology According to the FHT

“Reflexology is based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops, and sides of the feet correspond to different areas of the body. In this way, the feet can be seen as a ‘map’ of the body. By applying specialised massage techniques to specific reflex points – using the thumbs, fingers and knuckles – the aim of a reflexology treatment is to help restore balance to the body naturally, and improve the client’s general well-being.”

What to expect

Your therapist will start with a full consultation, asking various questions about your health and lifestyle, to ensure reflexology is right for you.

For the treatment itself you will remain fully clothed, simply removing your shoes and socks. You’ll be invited to relax on a reclining chair or treatment couch, or to put your feet up on a footstool. The therapist will gently cleanse your feet before applying a cream to help provide a free-flowing treatment, and then start gently massaging and stretching your feet and ankles.

As the treatment progresses, a variety of different reflexology techniques will be used to ‘work’ the reflex points on each foot, including a caterpillar-like movement called ‘thumb walking’. The areas treated and pressure applied will be adapted to suit your individual needs.

Treatment generally lasts for 45 minutes to an hour, though shorter reflexology sessions may be more appropriate in some instances.

Benefits of reflexology

Reflexology can help to relieve anxiety and tension, encourage relaxation, improve mood and aid sleep, though some people use it to help them cope with more specific health challenges. Reflexology is often used alongside conventional care in hospices, hospitals and other healthcare settings, to help support patients with a variety of conditions.

Reflexology should not be used in place of conventional medical care. Always consult a GP or other health professional for medical attention and advice.(2014 Federation of Holistic Therapists accessed 27/01/15)

Testimonials

 I think Reflexology is one of the most relaxing treatments you can have. The physical, emotional and mental benefits of a reflexology treatment with Viv are just amazing as she has that ability to make you feel totally at ease. I think Viv is a funny, intelligent, caring, kind person and also very knowledgeable. Her thirst for knowledge is so refreshing, she clearly loves what she does, and has a intuitive natural touch, she works magic with those hands! If you are thinking about trying reflexology then I’d say go for it, you wont be disappointed… Many Thanks Viv  xxx  Angela, Grantown On Spey

FOR HEN PARTIES AND LADIES...

Are you ooking to combine a weekend away with a full pampering experience on your doorstep?

Loramore is a beautiful spacious self catering bungalow right next door to the salon. Sleeping up to 10 people and located within walking distance of all local amenities. These lodgings are a great location for your whole holiday experience.

We stayed at Loramore last year as a group of 8 girls for a Birthday celebration. It must be said that this house is deceptively spacious and we were loving the fact that there were 3 en suites which meant no queuing for showers especially being a group of women. The location is great as it is a stones though from the centre of town and so close to great bars and restaurants. The added bonus was that we popped in next door to Aviemore beauty and had some fantastic treatments from Sally-Ann And Jess who made us feel so welcome and look good for our night out on the town. Would highly recommend staying here.
