~Reflexology, Where My Interests have Lead Me- by Christelle Gass RCRT, Reflexologist~




While working as a clinical reflexologist, I

felt drawn to treating and supporting

people living with cancer, fertility challenges and dementia on their health journeys.


This led me to complete further advanced reflexology training in Canada related to

Oncology Care, Fertility and Dementia. Unlike Eastern Reflexology, I use a light

pressure based on Western Reflexology techniques introduced by Eunice Ingham.

My aim is to help my clients enter a deep relaxation state called ‘rest and digest’,

where the body’s internal healing response is activated and balance is achieved. I

find it very rewarding to facilitate this process and seeing anecdotal improvements in

health and quality of life.


Specialised Reflexology for Oncology Care, Fertility and Dementia

I studied Clinical Reflexology in Scotland and have found reflexology beneficial for

supporting clients with anxiety, insomnia, PTSD, grief and stressful changes in their

lives. For best results, regular treatments are recommended as part of an ongoing

well-being protocol.


Oncology Care

Reflexology is a well-being treatment that promotes deep relaxation and helps to

improve quality of life for people living with cancer. It has been shown to provide

relief from symptoms and side effects associated with conventional cancer

treatments, such as stress, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, depression, inability to relax,

pain, peripheral neuropathy, nausea and constipation.

Reflexology can also be a wonderful support for caregivers to help prevent caregiver

burnout.


Fertility

Fertility reflexology is an excellent treatment to help reduce stress and helping you to

address intricate mental and emotional factors which may be affecting your fertility.

It can also act as a supportive treatment for couples undergoing conventional fertility

treatments such as IUI, IVF and ICSI.


Dementia

I combine Hand Reflexology and Validation Technique (developed by Naomi Feil) to

help improve quality of life for people living with dementia.

It is reported that these techniques help to reduce anxiety, improve sleep, relax

muscles and improve digestion. It can also be useful to help people adapt to a new

care community.

Hand and/or foot reflexology can also be a wonderful support for caregivers to help

prevent caregiver burnout.


General

Foot reflexology is beneficial for people living with diabetes as it helps to improve

circulation and flexibility in the feet. It may help to reduce peripheral neuropathy in

the feet by having regular treatments.


Since reflexology is a deeply relaxing and balancing treatment, it could support

women going through peri-menopause and menopause, as it promotes a sense of

wellbeing, releases tension, improves mood and sleep.


I look forward to connecting with you to determine the best approach for treating your

needs. Please reach out to me on 604 352 4276 or vibrantharmoniesbc@gmail.com
