Meriel’s first degree was in Sociology and Social Policy at Royal Holloway University, followed by a Postgraduate Certificate in Managing Major Projects at the National Centre for Project Management. After working as a Diversity and Equality Executive with the UK Film Council, Meriel changed career paths and qualified as a Clinical Reflexologist from the Reflexology Academy London, in September 2015.
Meriel takes a holistic approach to working with clients and uses Reflexology to assist the body in restoring itself and maintaining inner balance. Reflexology is a complimentary therapy that can be used alongside allopathic medicine. By applying pressure to reflexes on the feet that map via the nervous system to corresponding areas, glands and organs in the body, good health is promoted.
Reflexology stimulates relaxation, can improve blood and lymph circulation, release toxins, reduce pain, sooth, help with hormonal imbalance and encourage overall healing and the restoration of balance within the body. Reflexology can also be used for post-operative or palliative care.
The service provided by Meriel can be a one off treatment or a structured treatment plan over a number of sessions to target a specific condition.
