We’d like to say a huge well done to our Complementary Therapist and Advanced Assistant Jo Price, who has recently completed her training to become an accredited Reflexologist!
This follows an intensive three month training course, as well as completing her Ofqual Level 3 Diploma and/or Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, which is a pre-requisite qualification for becoming a Reflexologist.
Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary health therapy that promotes deep relaxation and wellbeing; by reducing stress. It is a touch therapy that is based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body and reflexologists work these points and areas.
Jo, who has worked at Lindsey Lodge for over six years said: “I’ve worked really hard over the past six months to gain both of these qualifications, so I’m delighted to now be able to offer this therapy to our patients at Lindsey Lodge.”
She added: “Complementary therapy plays such an important role in supporting our patients with personalised care to support them with the side effects of their treatment, reduce their anxiety as well as improving their physical and emotional wellbeing.
“We already provide hand, foot and slow stroke massage, Reiki and visualisation and relaxation, so being able to offer Reflexology patients offers even more choice.”
Lindsey Lodge Operational Matron Karen Andrew said: “We’re so proud of Jo, she’s worked so hard to achieve this new qualification, and is dedicated to really making a difference for our patients.
“Since taking up her post earlier this year, she’s delivered around 600 sessions of Complementary Therapy to our patients around the Hospice, as well as undertaking her busy role as an Advanced Assistant.
“We are committed to ensuring our patients receive the best possible holistic care, and this is another example of our dedication to continually improve and develop our services.”
