As far as my knowledge went, Reflexology was a treatment purely for the feet. I couldn’t have been more wrong! There is quite a variety of reflexology treatments, Maternity, Hot stone, Reproductive, Traditional and Facial reflexology and all are practiced by Gabriela Slater of NuReflexology. I was fortunate enough to experience facial reflexology combined with traditional and hot stone reflexology. Each part of the body reflected in the foot is also present in the face. I was soon to learn an awful lot more about this complementary therapy and the wealth of benefits it has to offer to each individual.
After receiving a professional and warm welcome I was shown into a treatment room with a fresh yet relaxing atmosphere. Gabriela is an experienced reflexology therapist practicing in Chippenham and Hungerford, offering flexibility with her appointment times at different locations.
