A Positive Touch for a Positive You….

Welcome to A Positive Touch Reflexology in Dundee;

Complementary Therapies for health, relaxation and renewal

Welcome to A Positive Touch!

My name is Tracey. I am a fully qualified and insured Reflexologist based in Dundee.

I am a complementary therapist and registered nurse, with a background in childcare and development. I am fully qualified and insured in the therapies I offer.

Please have a look around my website to see if there is anything I may be able to help you with.

I am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists.

If you have any questions about any conditions or problems you may have and whether any of the therapies I offer my help, please get in touch by email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.


Complementary therapies can run alongside conventional medicine, but should not be used in place of. Complementary therapies are never used to diagnose. You should always seek advice from your GP if you are concerned about any symptoms you may have.

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a natural therapy founded on the belief that your feet and hands are a reflection of the systems in your body – where specific areas correspond to organs, glands and structure. By applying gentle pressure to areas of the feet or hands a Reflexologist can help the body restore its own healthy balance.

Evidence has been found for some form of foot and hand therapy being practiced in China and Egypt more than four thousand years ago.

The holistic approach…

Reflexology aims to treat the individual as a whole, creating a state of harmony in both body and mind.

It has the benefit of also being a deeply relaxing therapy, and during periods of relaxation, the body takes the opportunity to heal, restore and energize itself.

Reflexology is for all ages!

Reflexology is suitable for all ages, from baby to adult, and can be especially helpful for long-term and recurring conditions. I specialize in various areas of Reflexology such as Reflexology Lymphatic drainage for Lymphoedema which can be especially problematic after lymph node removal post-surgery, Reflexology for the client in pain, Fertility reflexology and more. The therapies I offer are all based on positive touch, which is a basic human need.

None of the therapies I offer diagnose and are complementary holistic therapies. They should not be considered an alternative to conventional medicine.

Balance

Reflexology is a wonderful way of maintaining your body’s healthy balance and general wellbeing, reducing the stresses and tensions that come with busy lifestyles and giving us a space to reflect on the mind as well as the body.

Relaxation

Reflexology can induce a deep state of relaxation, which improves the effectiveness of the treatment. Relaxing helps relieve tension and aids circulation, increasing the flow of nutrients, oxygen and energy to all parts of the body, and helping with the removal of toxins.

Health

While it is not a cure, Reflexology can be particularly helpful in managing many health conditions, especially constant or recurring ones that we might have come to accept over-time as being a normal part of life.

Reflexology has proved beneficial for people looking to improve their health and well being with all sorts of conditions, including:

General aches & pains

Migraine

Stress

Anxiety

Peri-menopausal symptoms including hot flushes and mood changes

Neuropathy

Menstrual Problems

Thyroid Problems

Tinnitus

Plantar Fasciitis

Poor sleep

Lymphoedema

Hormonal imbalances

COVID 19 – Please Read

There have been changes to how I work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please read the following to ensure you get the best from your appointment, while keeping safe:

  • The evening before your appointment I will call you to go through a Covid risk assesment
  • I ask that if you feel unwell the day of your appointment you notify me and do not attend, we can re-schedule. This includes if you are suffering from what you may call a “cold”
  • Please wear a mask / I shall also be wearing a mask
  • I will have a tray for your phone, purse, keys, shoes to go into
  • The treatment area will be fully sanitised and aired between clients, therefore I am seeing less numbers of people and will be mindful of time. Please do not arrive early or late.
  • All blankets and towels are freshly laundered for each client.
  • Entry is through the side gate on my property, I will be there to greet you on your arrival
  • Sanitiser is available for use on arrival and departure
  • Unfortunately during this time, there will be no entry to my home, therefore there will be no toilet facilities, please ensure you go before leaving home.


I hope you will be reassured to know I am doing my best to maintain a safe space, so you can continue to enjoy your reflexology sessions.

Let’s hope if we all do a little, it can change a lot, and we can return to normality sooner rather than later.

Some frequently asked questions…


How many treatments will I need?

Everyone is different and the response to Reflexology can be variable depending on the problem and length of time the problem has been present. In some cases, relief may be immediate or sometimes may take longer than one appointment, often benefits can be seen after 4-5 sessions. Regular weekly treatments are best for the body kick-starting the self-healing process. Following an initial consultation, I will suggest the number of Reflexology sessions I think we should undertake.


What happens in a treatment?

Reflexology is performed on the feet, ankles and hands mainly, the most you’ll have to do is take off your socks and roll up your trousers! (please try not to wear skinny jeans for your appointment). During the treatment, the client relaxes on a reclining chair or therapy bed and is offered a soft blanket to keep warm.


And don’t worry – reflexology doesn’t tickle! Many clients come to me with ticklish feet or worried about their feet being touched, but find they can relax and enjoy the benefits of Reflexology.


Does reflexology hurt?

You might find some areas feel sensitive to the touch, but Reflexology does not involve hard pressure in the way something like a sports massage might. As a therapist, I will be aware of the status of your feet, noticing how they feel, the temperature and color. All of these things play a part in understanding which areas of your body – as reflected through your feet – require a little more care and attention.


Can you diagnose my health problems?

Reflexologists cannot claim to diagnose or cure but during treatment, we assess ‘feedback’ as to which parts of the body are working well and which are not. Sometimes Reflexology will highlight a specific area that may be struggling or working harder to maintain your wellbeing; if a particular reflex point shows this kind of reaction I’ll discuss it with you at the end of the session.


What are your fees & availability?

Reflexology sessions for individuals last 50 minutes and cost upwards of £30 per session. I also provide a once a month home visiting service for those with limited mobility (Dundee area only) contact me to enquire about availability and cost.


Note that if you want to cancel an appointment I require 24 hours’ notice; otherwise, you will still need to pay for any sessions missed. I accept payment in cash only.


Can I keep on having reflexology?

This is a matter of personal choice, some clients enjoy a weekly session and use this as their time for self-care, but after an initial course of treatment, many people choose to check in fortnightly or monthly for a top-up, to help maintain their general wellbeing, or as a scheduled ‘de-stress’. Other clients will get back in touch if they start feeling aches and pains, arranging treatments as and when they need them.
