I'm Maxine - I'm a Complementary Therapist, and I have been working at Beaumond House on Tuesday & Wednesdays afternoons giving Massage and Reflexology to Carers, patients and occasionally to Staff.
I originally trained as a general Nurse late 1980s. And I have been practising as a Complementary Therapist for over 20 years (Massage, Aromatherapy Massage & Reflexology). Over the last 17 years I have worked in Cancer Centres in 2 London Hospitals giving therapies to patients and carers.
I now live back in Newark, my home town. And I am delighted to be a very small part of the Beaumond House Team. People come and enjoy a gentle massage treatment, for example a back massage to ease aching muscles. Leg and foot massage to relieve tired legs and feet. Head, neck and face massage to relax upper body tension. Massage can be relaxing, revitalising and strengthening.
Some comments after treatment:
“It helps me to cope”
“The ache in my shoulders was relieved”
“It gives me some much needed time to myself”
Reflexology can be given to the hands or the feet. It can relax and stimulate the many thousands of nerve endings of the feet which feed back to all different parts of the body. It uses some massage and gentle pressure techniques. #
Some feedback given:
“It was surprisingly relaxing”
“The lovely sensation on my feet seemed to gently travel all through my body and I felt great afterwards”
“I don't know how, but my headache had gone by the end of the session.
Giving Massage & Reflexology is a joy. It is wonderful to work with someone several times as I notice that they relax more each time. It gives people space to talk and share about what they are dealing with in their lives.
I am truly delighted to have the opportunity to work at the very special place that is Beaumond House.
