Training & qualifications
Sam is a certified complementary therapist; ITEC Diploma qualified with The School of Natural Therapies in the UK in 2014.
She holds advanced certificates in Pre-conception and Maternity Reflexology and most recently, specialist treatment; RLD Reflexology Lymph Drainage (pioneered by UK based Reflexologist Sally Kay BSC(Hons)). RLD supports and provides relief to those with secondary Lymphoedema, in fact, any number of health conditions that cause pain, swelling and inflammation. RLD has also been found to benefit people with auto-immune conditions too.
RLD is so effective that Sam applies some, if not all of the elements of the technique, to every client she treats.
Sam is unique in bringing this new technique of RLD Reflexology to Sydney and she is presently the only accredited Reflexologist practising it here in Australia.
As her therapy practice grew in popularity, Sam began to see more and more women coming forward with conditions related to their hormones, particularly with regard to ladies trying to get pregnant or mums-to-be that were feeling physical discomfort and emotionally tired or anxious about the impending birth. She very quickly saw how much value Reflexology was to these women, as a safe, natural and relaxing therapy, but also because its very effective at balancing hormones, and therefore, easing symptoms, improving mood and regulating menstrual cycles. Naturally, having a special focus on women's health, particularly during childbearing years lead Sam to doing an advanced qualification in Fertility and Maternity Reflexology.
Sam extends her therapy offering with Natural Facelift Massage Therapy, or Facial Reflexology as it's more widely known in Australia. This technique is a combination of Reflexology, Deep Tissue Massage and Acupressure to lift, smooth and tighten the face, to help to improve on the natural effects of ageing and effect all the body systems. It's a natural and non-invasive alternative to botox and fillers.
Sam also offers Hot Stone therapy to treatments, ideal for cooler days when your circulation could do with an extra kick-start. The combination of heat and Reflexology means that the effects of treatment penetrate the skin on a much deeper level.
Sam continues to study and develop her knowledge and techniques of Reflexology and natural healthcare by taking part in wellness workshops, following latest research and learning pioneering techniques in her specialist field, while sharing knowledge and experience with fellow Reflexology practitioners worldwide.
She is a firm believer of adopting a natural and holistic approach to our health and well being. Reflexology and Reiki treatments are fundamental to empower ourselves and honour space to practice health and wellness. As a result we feel more fulfilled, alive, content and ultimately healthier!
