S. Cunliffe & Associates LTD
Welcome to Puresole, my name is Rachel Cox and I’m a qualified clinical reflexologist and reiki practitioner.
Studying at the Gaia school of natural health in 2015, I am qualified at the highest level currently available in the UK for a reflexology practitioner - level 5 Centralia reflexology mastership.
My Reiki journey started at the Navitas Reiki Centre in 2013 studying western Reiki (Usui Shiki Ryoho) through all 3 levels to reach Master practitioner level in 2016. After questioning why is it called "western" Reiki, I decided to study authentic Japanese Reiki (Jikiden) and in 2019 I spent five days training with Frank Arjava Petter in Jikiden Reiki completing Shoden and Okuden levels.
Treatments are tailored to individual needs. By incorporating an in depth consultation to discuss any presenting conditions and symptoms, as well as previous medical history. This information is used to create a bespoke treatment plan that is designed specifically to target the needs of the client and are reviewed on a regular basis.
While Reflexology is a therapy suitable for many people it is complimentary to traditional medicine and should never be used in place of care from your primary healthcare providers. Complimentary therapies are not a substitute for medical care. If you have, or suspect you have a health concern then you should always consult your GP.
What To Expect
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complimentary therapy based on the principle that different points, or reflexes on the feet and hands relate to the internal organs, glands and other structures of the body. By stimulating these reflex points can encourage the body’s own natural ability to heal itself on a physical and emotional level.
Reflexology is suitable for all ages and is an incredible relaxing, non-invasive therapy which can alleviate everyday stress and tension, improve circulation and in turn bring about an overall sense of wellbeing. Reflexology can help with many ailments that are acute, as well as chronic. It can also help a person better manage life’s challenges and help to rebalance mind and body.
RLD - Reflexology for Lymphatic Drainage Is an award winning reflexology technique, which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet.
The aim is to stimulate the function of the lymphatic system and drain excess lymph from the damaged area. It is a unique sequence that has been researched and developed by Sally Kay BSc (Hons), whilst working in Cancer Care.
Sportsflex / Duopody
SPORTSFLEX is a highly specific and effective method with which to therapeutically treat sport related injuries. By accessing individual muscles, muscle groups, ligaments and tendons, via the feet, to facilitate optimum performance and also to evoke a rapid healing response if injured or traumatised.
The treatment sequence includes techniques from conventional reflexology, Duopody, CALM, TouchPoint and Myofascia Meridians.
(NEPIP) Reflexology - NeuroEndoPsychoImmunoPody
NEPIP is an advanced reflexology protocol that is exclusive to reflexologists trained to the level 5 mastership. NEPIP is an amazing treatment at the cutting edge of reflexology.
It is particularly effective in helping people suffering from stress and anxiety as it uses advanced protocols which work on the principle of increasing the flow of communication between the mind, immune and nervous systems, all of which are involved with and can also be adversely affected by stress.
"Reiki" (pronounced ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’, a term used to describe a natural system to help bring about an improved sense of wellbeing and a positive feeling of spiritual renewal. This tradition was founded by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system and benefits may include deep relaxation and the promotion of a calm peaceful sense of wellbeing.
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is simple. The recipient remains fully clothed and comfortably lies on a couch or sits on a chair. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively, on or near the body using their intuition and training as a guide. There is no massage or manipulation. Reiki can be used on the person as a whole, or on specific parts of the body.
