Michlin Mustac (Reflexology Therapist)
Diploma of Reflexology (UK)
Reflexology is a holistic therapy based on reflex points in the hands and feet. These points, linked by energy channels, correspond to the body’s organs, glands and nerves. When stress, pain or illness occur, the channels become blocked. Reflexology is applied to gently clear these blockages, allowing energy to flow freely again and aid in the body’s return to natural balance and good health.
People seek Reflexology to support their health in the management of anxiety, fatigue, pain, inflammation, premenstrual symptoms, infertility, poor circulation, muscular tension, insomnia, migraines, cystitis, asthma, postoperative recovery, digestive dysfunction etc. It is also helpful in the maintenance of general health and relaxation.
Michlin personally benefitted from Reflexology in maintaining her own health and decided to study and practice the modality. In 2006 she completed extensive training, including Foot, Hand and Maternity Reflexology, at the London School of Reflexology, UK.
She is also a certified Yoga Instructor and Remedial Massage Therapist.
Michlin enjoys teaching Mindfulness Art Classes in Nature and Meditation.
Michlin is available for Reflexology on Mondays and Saturday afternoons.
