Meridian Therapies is located in Newbury town centre and provides reflexology treatments, helping to bring about a state of deep relaxation and well-being. Reflexology is a complementary therapy based on the theory that different points on the feet, hands, face or ears correspond to different areas of the body and that working these points can aid wellbeing.

Meridian Therapies is owned by Zita, a trained reflexologist. Zita has always been interested in holistic therapies and when she relocated from another country to the UK she found reflexology to be a beneficial and supportive therapy; giving her comfort and deep relaxation as well as a better understanding of her wellbeing. After learning about the theories upon which reflexology is based, Zita decided to train as a reflexologist, gaining her qualification from the London School of Reflexology. This was a big change for Zita after more than 12 years in a corporate environment!

Meridian Therapies 3

Everyone can enjoy the benefits of reflexology, it is a non-invasive therapy and is often recommended to help treat stress, spinal problems, headaches, insomnia, digestive issues, anxiety or depression, sinus problems, fertility issues and it can be used during pregnancy. Zita also treats children (those under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian).

We had a one hour treatment with Zita and, having never experienced reflexology before, we were a little unsure what to expect. Zita’s treatment room is located in the Living Saucha Yoga building in Newbury Market Place – after you’ve entered the building go up the stairs to the right (just before the café area) and the treatment room is on the right hand side. Zita was very friendly and welcoming. She explained what reflexology is, what she would be doing during the appointment and took a brief medical history. This is so that Zita can tailor the session to suit each individual’s needs and focus on the appropriate reflexes so that you receive the maximum health benefits from the session. We lay down on the bed and removed shoes and socks (you don’t need to remove any other clothing!). We were covered with a blanket and Zita even had a hot water bottle ready for us; we absolutely loved this extra thoughtful touch, great for cold days! Zita wiped our feet with a warm towel and then began working on each foot individually, spending about 20 minutes on each one. It was an incredibly relaxing experience which definitely helped to ease tension. At the end of the session Zita talked through any issues that she had found and ways that we may be able to treat them. We felt relaxed for the rest of the day and can see that regular treatments would help with well-being and relaxation.
