Reflexology is an ancient healing method that has become popular again in the past hundred years. The word Reflexology alludes to the basis of the technique – your feet and hands reflect your body.
Your feet and hands have reflex areas corresponding to the different parts of the body. These reflex areas form a map of the body representing the parts of the body on the feet and hands. The state of your physical and emotional health is reflected in your feet and hands.
Using different massage and pressure techniques on these reflexes can bring about a positive healing response including pain relief, hormone balance, relaxation and stress relief.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy that can address both your physical and emotional wellbeing. It works well on it’s own or as part of conventional medical treatment.
Best of all, reflexology treatments are enjoyable and relaxing. Many of my clients achieve a deep level of relaxation during the treatment and some even fall asleep . In addition to helping balance hormones, relieve pain and help you feel great, reflexology supports your immune system to prevent illness.
In most situations, the goal of a reflexology treatment is to bring your body back to a state of balance. When there is balance in our body, the organs and body systems can work optimally and we feel energetic and healthy.
How are reflexology treatments performed?
After a warm foot bath, you lie fully clothed on my massage table. Using pillows to support you and make sure you feel comfortable I work for a short time on your hands before moving to your feet.
How long is the treatment?
Most of my treatments are an hour long however I usually incorporate some reflexology into my massage treatments.
If you would like an hour and a half treatment, reflexology combines very well with other massage techniques including Sobada abdominal massage treatments.
Is Reflexology safe during fertility treatments?
Yes! I have trained with some of the best teachers in the field so I can confidently support you to improve your fertility whether your goal is natural conception or you’re undergoing conventional treatments, such as Clomid or with fully medicated cycles of IUI, IVF, ICSI as well as with donor eggs.
I adapt my treatments to the different stages of your cycle and your fertility treatment protocol.
Reflexology is very effective in enhancing the effect of the drugs you’re taking AND in reducing common side effects like bloating, mood swings, fatigue and heaviness.
Many women experience high levels of stress during fertility treatments and reflexology is a wonderful way of helping you cope during this time.
Is reflexology safe during pregnancy?
Yes! In fact, reflexology during pregnancy is a fantastic way to reduce pregnancy related symptoms like nausea, fatigue, prevent swelling and other discomforts and help make pregnancy an enjoyable experience.
Reflexology is safe at every stage of pregnancy even from before you even found out you are pregnant until the birth (and beyond!). Each treatment is tailored to your stage of pregnancy and helps prepare your body for an easy and enjoyable birth.
I have lots of cushions and pillows in my treatment room to make sure you are completely comfortable during the treatment.
On a personal note: my first experience with reflexology was when I received it during my very first pregnancy. I enjoyed it so much I decided to become a reflexologist. That’s how good reflexology during pregnancy can be!
I’m a holistic therapist and I am here to help you!
I love helping women to overcome their fertility challenges and other issues related to your cycles, pregnancy, periods and/or anxiety.
I treat women with abdominal and womb massage techniques known as Sobada (formally the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage) and reflexology.
I’m also an Advanced EFT Tapping practitioner and I work with women in particular issues around anxiety, depression, stress levels.
I teach Fertility Awareness to help women better know their bodies and improve their chances of conceiving or prevent pregnancy naturally.
I live in Modi’in, Israel and that’s where I spend my days helping women during their fertile years, pregnancy, menopause and other hormonal conditions. Bodywork sessions (massage and reflexology take place in my clinic in Modi’in but EFT Tapping sessions and Fertility Awareness education can take place online or in person).

I’d heard of tapping for years and became interested in it. It was so much more than I expected. I feel a physical and emotional relief. My anxiety reduced greatly.
Thank you so much for the tapping session. I look forward to doing it with my kids and as a tool for myself in the coming weeks. Thanks again.
Hi Annette, Good morning, I’m just now finding time to write to you after the treatment a few days ago. It helped me sooo much. I can still feel the tapping on my skin. It felt so releasing and in the moment when it started to become difficult again on my own it really helped. Thank you so much.
Tapping helped me so much! It really helped me clarify what I want.I feel so much better and so much calmer. Thank you, Annette.
Annette introduced me to the world of tapping and it helped me realise how much I can help myself to release and relax. Annette is a master!! She helped me connect to the good inside, to change my thinking and start thinking more positively. The tapping we have done together has been so powerful. I am only a few months pregnant and for various reasons it has been very stressful and there have been a lot of fears that the pregnancy may not continue. Annette has helped me connect to my baby even under these difficult circumstances and help me feel calmer and more confident about the future.
Tapping was new to me before I tried it with Annette. Expressing some of my negative thoughts while tapping helped me release them and then find more positive thoughts. I feel like I found a tool to help myself on a day-to-day level. I’m so grateful for this work we did together. It’s profoundly impacted myself and my family and I use it often.
It’s been really surprising how powerful tapping is and how deep the tapping gets, really fast. I feel like I “tapped into” some of my core issues and dealt with them in a really powerful way. The treatment was very focussed and practical which I didn’t expect. Thank you, Annette.
I feel relaxed and confident in myself and my ability to do things and usually I am scared or worried. My confidence grew quietly while we were tapping. Your gentle approach and quiet voice accompanied me and I am so grateful.
EFT Tapping arrived just when I needed it. Annette helped me to peel away layers of protection and to release things that were weighing me down. After the treatment, sometimes I felt immediate relief and sometimes I felt tired and it took a bit longer to process the feelings and let them sink in. But in the end I always felt how each treatment helped me to move another step forward in my healing and to melt things that were weighing me down. Besides that I also learnt an amazing tool that I can use by myself in challenging moments and that is an amazing gift.
