Homeopathy is a holistic medicine which uses specially prepared, highly diluted substances (given mainly in tablet form) with the aim of triggering the body’s own healing mechanisms. A homeopath will prescribe medicines according to the patient’s specific set of symptoms, and how they experience them, taking into account their overall level of health.
Homeopathy can be used to treat a range of mental, emotional and physical symptoms. Some example are migraines, anxiety, depression, menopausal symtoms, recurrent infections, IBS and allergies.
Homeopathy is a safe and natural form of medicine which focuses on the individual as a whole.
Catrin obtained her Diploma & Licentiate from The Welsh School of Homeopathy in 2015. She is a registered member of The Society of Homeopaths (RSHom) which means she has met the required standards of education, is fully insured and abides by the Society’s Code of Ethics and Practice.

Reflexology is a gentle complementary therapy that aims to help the body balance itself, so as to encourage self-healing. It involves working reflex points on the feet or hands, mapped to corresponding areas or organs of the body. Reflexologists work these points to encourage a positive energetic effect on the body and mind.
Many find the “hands on” nature of reflexology relaxing and that it helps ease tension, also that it can lift mood, aid sleep and promote a sense of well-being. People often report other benefits, such as easing of pain and stiffness, improved energy levels, relief of digestive problems and reduced inflammation.
Reflexology complements and works alongside conventional medicine to support good health. The approach is holistic, taking into account the whole person, physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects. Reflexology recognises that all parts of the body impact on each other, that mind and body are connected, that every person is unique and that any health care needs to be tailored to the individual.

Rhysian holds full membership of the Association of Reflexologists (MAR), which means she holds a recognised reflexology qualification, is fully insured, undertakes continuing professional development and abides by the AoR’s comprehensive Code of Practice
