Reflexologist (MAR Accredited)
Nicola is the founder of ReFoxology and is a fully qualified Reflexologist. She is a full member of the Association of Reflexologists and Functional Reflex Therapy Network. Nicola has been qualified as a reflexologist since 2018 and has worked both face-to-face and virtually to support her clients physical and emotional wellbeing. Nicola delivers 1:1 treatments on the feet, hands and face as well as workshops to teach self-care hand reflexology.
In January 2020 Nicola completed the Functional Reflex Therapy Framework (FRT) course to specialise in working with parents, children and young people who struggle with their anxiety and emotional wellbeing. As part of the FRT framework she teaches them a rainbow relaxation routine using movements taken from reflexology. As part of the sessions, she provides information on how emotions can impact the organs of the body and the physical affects this can lead to. The rainbow relaxation routine can be taught to parents to use on their children (hands or feet) or to children, young people, and parents as self-care (hands). Nicola has delivered the FRT rainbow relaxation routine to parents, children, vulnerable young people, workplaces, NHS staff, clients, teachers, foster carers, college students and primary schools.
Previously, Nicola worked in Further Education as a Sports Science Teacher and Progress Tutor supporting young people with their education and wellbeing. Nicola has always thrived from supporting others and having had first-hand experience of reflexology for fertility reasons, genuinely believes in the benefits it can have.
Nicola has achieved:
- A Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology
- The Functional Reflex Therapy Framework course
- Mindful Reflexology
- A First Aid in the Workplace Certificate
- Acupressure Facial Therapy
Nicola undertakes regular professional development in-line with the Association of Reflexologists and has full insurance. Nicola is looking forward to working at the Sunrise Wellbeing Therapy Centre delivering reflexology workshops and treatments to children, young people, and adults to help reduce their anxiety levels and support their emotional wellbeing.
