about us

Jacqueline Ward Therapies in Guernsey offer reflexology and massage therapy treatments to help you gain renewed energy and overall wellbeing through the release of tension and stress caused by daily life.

 


After over 30 years in the finance industry, Jacqueline Ward re-trained at the Guernsey College of Further Education to gain a full Diploma in Reflexology and a City & Guilds in Swedish Massage.

Jacqueline is passionate about the practice of reflexology and the huge benefits of this complementary therapy.


 

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to the feet utilising specific thumb, finger and hand techniques to relieve tension and treat illness. It is based on the theory that a system of zones and reflex areas on the feet are linked to every part of the body, with a premise that working on these areas effects a physical change in the body.

 

Physical Benefits:

  • Reduces muscular tension
  • Relieves fatigue
  • Increases energy or reduces tension
  • Promotes refreshing sleep
  • Strengthens natural self-healing mechanisms

 

Emotional and Mental Effects:

  • Promotes calmness and a sense of well-being
  • Relaxes the body and mind
  • Relieves stress
  • Soothes emotional distress

 


 

What is Swedish Massage?

During a Swedish Massage treatment, Jacqueline uses soothing massage oil and uses hands, forearms and elbows to warm up, manipulate and work the muscle tissue, releasing tension and breaking up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues, called adhesions. Swedish massage promotes relaxation, eases muscle tension and creates other health benefits.

 

Benefits of Swedish Massage:

  • Reduction in muscle spasm, pain and tension
  • Release of endorphins, the body's natural pain killers
  • Relaxation and therefore reduction in anxiety
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Improved lymphatic drainage
  • Improved mobility
  • Reduction of swelling caused by an accumulation of fluid in the tissues
  • Balancing the overall flow of natural life energy through the body
  • Inducing a feeling of well-being through the comfort of human touch

 



Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage (IHM) offers many benefits including; stimulating and improving scalp circulation which in turn helps strengthen and grow hair, it removes tension from the jaw and smoothes out face muscles, energy increases as the circulation and respiratory systems open to provide fresh oxygen to vital organs. It helps strengthen and mobilizes the muscles, tissues and spinal nerves of the head, neck, shoulders, arms, hands and upper spine.

 

IHM is a non-invasive dry treatment (no oils), which does not require any form of undressing.

 


 

Treatment Location

Jackie has created a dedicated treatment room in her home and is fully insured to treat clients for both reflexology and body massage.

 


 

Jackie regularly attends Jing Advanced Massage courses in Brighton, most recently (April 2012) for Forearm and Deep Tissue Massage techniques:

 

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course which has taught me how to achieve depth and pressure through correct use of body weight, and to eliminate strokes that hurt my hands and save my thumbs. Not only are the courses fun but the benefits to myself and my clients are immediately evident".

 


Jacqueline is a member of The Association of Reflexologists (AoR)

I recently had a reflexology treatment with Jackie and as I had never had reflexology before and am heavily pregnant was interested in the benefits. Jackie was very welcoming and made me feel comfortable straight away. She explained what the treatment involved and showed me the different pressure points on the feet and what parts of the body they related to. I was very relaxed and enjoyed having time to shut my eyes and put my feet up. Fortunately Jackie found no blockages to clear but did comment that I needed to put my feet up more and could feel tension in the head/neck area. I took her advice and had a nap that afternoon and increased my uptake of water. I would definitely go again and look forward to the benefits of post natal reflexology. I would recommend it throughout pregnancy as it can help aid relaxation, de-stress and support the body prepare for labour.

Another fantastic treatment from Jacquie. Reassuringly professional in a non-sterile environment at her own home. Massage was amazing and reflexology (from someone with massively ticklish feet) was so relaxing. It took a while to be able to string a coherent sentence together afterwards. Give it a go.you're in very good hands. Have booked my Mum in for her 1st treatment ever!

I first went to see Jackie last year after suffering terrible pain across my shoulders from being hunched over a computer for many hours a day. After months of suffering I immediately started to feel the benefits and continued to visit Jackie regularly. I am pleased to say that I am now pain free despite still spending long hours at the computer! Highly recommended.

I visited Jackie yesterday for a neck and shoulder massage which also incorporated an indian head massage. I can honestly say that Jackie is very professional and friendly and soon put me at ease. I had a lot of tension and soreness in my neck and shoulder when I went to Jackie and I can really say that I have so much more movement and feel much better today. I have had a number of indian messages both in Guernsey and in the UK and I can honestly say that Jackie gave one of the best I have had. I felt very relaxed last night and slept so well and feel really good today. If any of you suffer with neck and shoulder problems then visit Jackie, you won't be disappointed. Jackie also threw in a short session of reflexology which was very good. I will be visiting Jackie again and can't wait to try a full reflexology therapy.

I went to Jackie last Friday morning and I can honestly say that it was the best massage I have ever had. I had a full body massage with reflexology and from the moment I stepped into the room I felt calm and relaxed which continued throughout the whole massage. Jackie has very good techniques and I will be sure to visit her again.

Jacqueline is professional and organised, so booking an appointment was straightforward and problem free. The treatment itself was relaxing & the use of handwarmers and hot oil was an unexpected but pleasant surprise. Overall, a lovely & worthwhile experience.
