"As someone who finds it hard to relax and isn't very good at "me time" meeting Ged has been a godsend, she has helped me understand that looking after myself isn't selfish or something that needs to be earned. I would highly recommend the facials and reflexology was amazing too. Treatments take place in a lovely setting and my appointments are now regular"
"Im a complete newbie to professional facials, but wow I will be making time for more! Such a relaxing experience, and my skin has never felt better, thanks Ged xx "
"I went to Ged without having had a Facial before and I was amazed by the experience from start to finish. I found the massage techniques very relaxing with just the right amount of pressure and focus in different areas of my face, the oils have left my skin feeling so soft with a subtle scent. I will definitely be going again! I now feel and look fresh faced. Thanks!"
"Thank you for my facial last night. Was lovely and relaxing. My skin feels so soft! Thank you "
"Great treatment today feel relaxed and ready to face the week!"
"Best massage I’ve ever had, feel like I can move again without hurting too much - thank you, see you again soon"
"I just had my reflexology, and I must say it was the most relaxing thing ever!! I loved it so much that I want to do it again!!! Thank you Ged!!"
"To be honest, I wasn't expecting much in the way of results, very skeptical. But even from the first session, I started to feel relaxed, and I noticed by the 3rd session the pain in my shoulder and left elbow had eased, noticeably. I would recommend Neuroflexology to my friends and colleagues"
"Superb! Friendly, professional, and oh so calming and relaxing! Recommend to all!"
"A wonderfully relaxing environment, gorgeous therapy carried out by a lovely lady - book now!"
Thankyou Tranquility Therapies. "

"My Wife is a regular client at Tranquillity and had been on at me to try it. Not being interested, I went along anyway and was very surprised with the results!
When I said I didn't want my feet touched Geraldine suggested doing my hands and found it very relaxing so much so that I felt myself drifting off!
From this procedure Geraldine was able to tell me that I had a problem with my nose and my knee!!! I would recommend it to any man and will definitely go back"
Very good value for the treatments and I find the whole experience relaxing and for mind body and soul xxx"
"I first contacted Geraldine as a stressed-out Teacher, desperate for some TLC after a long, long term. I booked an Indian Head Massage and, counted down the days to the end of term...
The Massage was fantastic; really relaxing - Geraldine makes it really easy to forget your worries. I had never had an Indian Head Massage before and didnt really know what to expect. Clearly I needed it - it put me in the right frame of mind for the school holidays and I was determined to make 'me-time' part of my routine from then on.
Geraldine suggested Fertility Reflexology. Again, I had never had any kind of Reflexology treatment, so didnt really know what to expect, but after the first session I was hooked. I look forward to her 'So, how have you been?' and the chance to talk through my worries before the session begins...then its an hour of bliss, with candles and soft music, snuggled beneath a blanket and Geraldine working away at my feet. I am amazed at what she can deduce from them - stress, cycle and much more - and she's always happy to answer questions and explain how it all works.
Overall I thoroughly recommend Geraldine's treatments. The 'me-time' continues to pay dividends and having someone genuinely interested in your wellbeing is fantastic."
"Ive recently had some Reflexology at Tranquillity Therapies, and it felt great. It didnt tickle like I thought it might, am definitely coming back, thanks :)"

What does Holistic mean?
The word holistic is taken from the Greek word 'Holos' meaning whole.
A Holistic Therapy treats the whole person not just the physical symptoms of disease, and deals with the individual as a whole incorporating body, mind and spirit.
Does Reflexology tickle?
Many people have sensitive feet and imagine that Reflexology would not be appropriate for them as they are ticklish. However, because reflexology uses techniques of applying pressure to the feet, those clients who generally have ticklish feet, to their surprise never find it a problem during a reflexology treatment.
Does Reflexology cause discomfort?
Reflexology is primarily a gentle massage of the feet that aims to be relaxing and calming. However, some of the reflexes can feel a little gritty or tender sometimes. The practitioner will offer to reduce the pressure being applied when tenderness is felt, although more often than not it subsides within seconds and can help precipitate the benefits felt from Reflexology.
Can I have Reflexology if I'm pregnant?
Yes. You will find that Reflexology can be wonderful throughout pregnancy to alleviate any symptoms such as nausea, heartburn, and back ache. Reflexology can also help to cut down on labour time. It can prepare you for the birth.
Can you treat my child?
Reflexology & Indian Head Massage can be of great benefit to children just as it can be for adults. Treatment of a child under 16 would require the completion of a consent form by the child's parent or guardian; also an accompanying adult must be present throughout the treatment session.
I feel self-conscious about my body!
Nearly everyone feels self-conscious about their body in one way or another. Don’t let this stop you having a massage! It is a pleasurable experience and can really help to relieve & soothe both aches and pains, help the client unwind and to relieve stress. Massage therapists have seen all kinds of bodies in all shape and sizes, from young to old and we are not there to judge. Please don’t let feeling self-conscious about your weight or other body issues be a reason not to have a massage.
How many treatments do I need?
This really depends on your individual needs & circumstances. Normally the most benefit is received from 3 to 4 weekly treatments initially, followed by fortnightly then monthly.
How can I expect to feel after treatment?
Individual responses to reflexology/massage are very different, and some people may not feel the benefit of the therapies immediately - it may take a couple of treatments.
After the treatment you may feel very calm and deeply relaxed, others may feel energised and full of bounce! However, because reflexology/massage aids in the removal of toxins from the body, it is possible that you may experience one or several of the following:
* Cold type symptoms such as a runny nose
* Feeling light-headed or sleepy
* Increase in excretory functions
Taking things easy, eating only lightly and drinking plenty of water/herbal teas will soon flush the system out.
These are a natural, positive reaction which is part of the healing process. They should last for 24 hours only.
