Who I am and where to find me

Dr Emily Hughes MSc DPhil (Oxon) MAR

I am a fully qualified and insured member of the Association of Reflexologists and run a practice just outside of Oxford in Wootton and Dry Sandford. I specialise in treating women and children. I'm on the no. 4 bus route between Oxford and Abingdon, easily accessible from Boars Hill and Botley, and there is plenty of free parking.

I'm not a medical doctor, so I can't diagnose or offer medical advice. I work alongside traditional medicine to support your well-being.


Benefits of reflexology

Reflexology is a complementary therapy that can help to improve your feelings of well-being; it aims to create a sense of deep relaxation, helping to relieve symptoms of stress, which can help you sleep better and therefore feel better. A course of treatment may help to:

- aid sleep
- release tension
- improve mood
- increase relaxation
- enhance well-being

Overall, I will work with you to create a bespoke treatment plan, treating you holistically, rather than just focusing on specific symptoms. A reflexologist treats the whole body by working on reflex points on the feet, face, or hands, inducing a state of deep relaxation to aid well-being.

There has been a lot of research into reflexology. For example, one study with menopausal women showed that a course of reflexology helped to relieve some of the symptoms of menopause; the authors stated that hot flushes decreased during the course of the study and that there was a reduction in sleep disorder. Asltoghiria, M., & Ghodsib, Z. (2012). The effects of Reflexology on sleep disorder in menopausal women. Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences, 31, 242 – 246.


Zone Face Lift and Facial Reflexology

As well as traditional foot and hand reflexology, I also offer facial reflexology, which is wonderfully relaxing, and the 'Bergman Method' Zone Face Lift - a full facial reflexology treatment with additional beautifying effects. See my Zone Face Lift page for more information about the benefits of Zone Face Lift.


What is reflexology?

This short clip, from the Association of Reflexologists, tells you a little more about reflexology. The interactive foot and hand maps, mentioned in the clip, are available at the end of my 'About Reflexology' web page.
