Hello, my name is Marcia Edwards. My history with reflexology began over 20 years ago while I was working and living in London.
I've always had an interest in complementary therapies and was especially interested in reflexology. I had the opportunity to sign up to an eight week introductory course it not only confirmed my thoughts but also had an amazing effect on me.
Prior to this course for a number of years I had suffered lower back pain and bad posture; to gain practical experience all the students on the course worked on each other's feet on a weekly basis. By having these simple techniques applied to my feet, I found my lower back pain had been greatly reduced until it was almost gone.
There was quite a break in this story as for some time I did not continue on my journey in becoming a reflexologist. I took it up again when I had children. Due to initial health problems for my children (my daughter has asthma and my son has Down's Syndrome) , I wanted to find something which was as natural as possible to use without the need for any additional medication. At this point my journey started again and this time I was determined to become a qualified reflexologist.
I am passionate about all forms of reflexology and since qualifying I have taken a number of other courses to further my knowledge. The two courses I am most excited about are:
Functional Reflex Therapy (FRT) which is a combination of relaxation techniques drawn from reflexology. It is designed to empower those who support children and adults with additional needs.
Limbic Reflexology is a new addition to the world of Reflexology, and represents a revolutionary breakthrough in the help that a reflexologist can offer those seeking help with emotional pain. Working new Limbic reflex areas in the feet, using specific techniques, we can now connect with the brain networks that underpin many disabling conditions such as anxiety, depression, chronic pain conditions and much more.
I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists and the Functional Reflex Therapy Network. I also practice as a Limbic Reflex Therapist and am fully insured. I hold an IIR (International Institute of Reflexology) Diploma and have been trained in the Ingham method of reflexology.
I mainly work from my treatment room in Uphall. If you cannot come to me I can come to you. I cover the whole of West Lothian.
