Wellness incorporates Health, Vitality and Balance in all aspects of Life

Welcome to Holistic Health Hub.

My name is Sandra Hedges and I am a private complementary health therapist, offering individually tailored treatments, including lifestyle advice, with a focus on naturally promoting health, vitality and balance.

I am a registered Therapeutic Reflexologist, with qualifications in Complementary therapies, including massage & sports massage, energy kinesiology as well as a certified Hatha Yoga instructor.

If you have gone from excellent health, to sudden extreme physical derailment, leaving you in shock, and with lingering discomfort and confusion, I can sympathise! Have you had medical tests run, with no really helpful answers to the reasons or solutions to your crisis? Are you frustrated and exhausted, and just want to be back to your old self? After a year of struggle myself, and much self-research and many different approaches to healing, I finally figured out the complex interactions of many contributing factors, which have given me clarification about my physical health, but more importantly, expanded my mental, emotional and spiritual bodies, leading to greater direction with regards to my Life’s Purpose…and this is what I want to help you to uncover, through the process of a personal healing experience using natural healing techniques, and then delving deeply into emotional and spiritual aspects of your true self, so that you can understand the messages being relayed to you by your physical health challenges, and learn to overcome obstacles in the way of you achieving your Life Purpose and Soul Intention.

Healthy Living

Natural Therapists recognize that if you provide the body with the right conditions, it will heal itself. One of the key ways to do this is through diet.
The ultimate task of body cells is to convert nutrients into energy (Chi). This can only be achieved if we feed our cells a good quality, balanced diet.
The body, however, often shows imbalances related to nutrition. The presence of acidosis or alkalosis in the body indicates that a serious problem exists. One cause of these conditions includes poor diet. Both conditions can result in a number of ill effects on the body. By making appropriate adjustments to one’s diet, these imbalances can be corrected, as the body obtains the correct types and quality of nutrients in the correct proportions, in accordance with its pH and metabolic requirements.

What we eat influences the amount of Chi we receive to keep the meridians (energy pathways in the body), the five elements (association everything has with nature), and thus our body and mind in a healthy state. Dense food is likely to have energy vibrating at a low frequency, and so be stagnant and congest the meridians and unbalance the elements. Most food consumed today is man-made and contains high levels of non-digestible and non-biodegradable chemical additives, making it dense. Organically grown food, allowed to ripen before being picked, will contain essential nutrients for life, high vibrational energy, balanced sodium and potassium levels, and will be alkalizing as opposed to acid-forming.

The use of nutritional supplements can help to balance the diet, by supplying nutrients that are lacking in our food, but these supplements must be in a form that the cells recognize and can make use of. Medication and other chemical intake, including drugs and nicotine from cigarettes, generally interfere with natural body processes, and thus disrupt the flow of Chi, causing imbalances, which may manifest as side effects and other related complications.

‘We are what we eat’ is a common expression, and very true, at least with regards to the physical body. By fuelling our body with the nutrients it requires, it can function efficiently and ward off infections and illness. Existing ailments can be overcome using nutrition to support the body’s defense systems and strengthen its overall immunity.

My Complementary Health Therapies

My Complementary Health Therapies include the various services listed below.

THERAPEUTIC REFLEXOLOGY AND MERIDIAN THERAPY

Reflexology makes use of pressure points in the feet and hands to stimulate the body’s own healing potential through massage techniques, effectively unblocking energy pathways (meridians) that have become congested, causing illness and pain.

A therapeutic reflexologist does not treat specific diseases, nor does he/she diagnose or prescribe medicine.

A therapeutic reflexology assessment simply determines which parts of the body are out of balance, and the patient is treated accordingly, to restore harmony and energy flow, and thus eliminate problems caused by specific diseases.

Therapeutic reflexology can be administered to anybody, of any age, as a prevention technique, whether after a course of treatment, to prevent a re-emergence of a problem, or simply to maintain the body in a balanced state and prevent any slight imbalances causing problems.

Reflexology is also one of the most relaxing forms of massage and is an excellent way to alleviate stress.

  

Foot Mobilisation

Foot mobilisation helps to relieve structural misalignments and is useful for sports injuries and the like.

Auriculotherapy - (Ear Reflexology)

Auriculotherapy makes use of pressure points in the ears to produce a similar effect to that achieved through reflexology. It is especially useful for muscle spasm and pain relief.
