Welcome to Lucy Staves Holistic Services
Hello, I’m Lucy. I’m a Brit living in Canada. I offer reiki and reflexology treatments to balance your body and mind in Oakville, Ontario. I recently won Best Reflexologist in the Oakville Readers Choice Awards for the second year running.
I am a certified member of the Reflexology Association of Canada making me a fully Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist carrying the RCRT ™ accreditation.
I also run workshops and coaching programs for other health and wellness practitioners.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is an alternative healing modality originating from Japan. It uses the “Universal Energy” or “Life Force” to improve the flow of energy in the mind, body and spirit. Reiki Practitioners use the method of palm-healing to channel the universal energy. This helps clear any blockages and bring balance into your energy field. Reiki is a gentle yet very effective form of ‘Energy Medicine’ that reduces stress, speeds healing and promotes an improved state of emotional, mental and physical well-being.
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a holistic therapy based on the principle that different points, or reflexes, on the feet and hands correspond with specific areas of the body. We believe that stimulating these points can help aid relaxation, improve your mood, release tension in your body, enhance sleep, and generally improve your sense of wellbeing. Regular reflexology sessions balance your body and mind, leaving you calm and grounded and allowing you to better deal with the stresses of modern life.
What are the benefits?
Both Reiki and Reflexology are deeply relaxing and very enjoyable, but they can also help manage a host of physical and emotional health issues. Your body has the ability to heal itself; following illness, stress, or injury it can be in a state of “imbalance” and vital systems can be blocked, preventing your body from functioning optimally. Holistic therapies like Reiki and Reflexology can be used to release these blockages; restoring and maintaining your natural balance.
My areas of interest
I see clients from all walks of life but I have special interest in:
Stress is present in all our lives – the stress response is a vital reaction; in dangerous or exciting situations we release hormones which give us a surge of energy to deal with stressful situations. A little bit of stress is good for us, but when ongoing it affects the body and mind. It can feel overwhelming at times, and both reiki and reflexology can help you relax and restore the balance in your life and body.
Pregnancy & Postpartum
Reflexology is a beautifully relaxing and gentle treatment to receive during your pregnancy, and can be helpful in alleviating common symptoms such as nausea, heartburn, tiredness and insomnia, balancing hormones and emotions, and even with constipation and hemorrhoids. And after your baby is born you can continue having treatments to help with your postpartum healing; to re-balance hormones, relieve muscle tension, boost milk production, ease feelings of anxiety, and boost energy levels to name just a few.
Fertility & Reproductive health
Many women suffer from painful, heavy or irregular periods – by stimulating the reproductive reflexes and chakras and balancing hormones, regular reiki and reflexology sessions can help you manage your menstrual cycle. Reflexology can also be used by women (and men) who are trying to conceive – by providing relaxation, stress relief and emotional support, but also through helping regulate menstrual cycles and ovulation, balancing hormones and reproductive organs and also boosting sperm production. Reflexology and reiki can also provide relief to women entering the perimenopausal and menopausal phase of their life.
Insomnia and sleep disorders
By relaxing the body and helping the release of hormones, reiki and reflexology can really help improve the quality of your sleep. Many people fall asleep while having a treatment as it is so relaxing. As we view the body holistically, reiki and reflexology sessions will also look to relieve the cause of your sleep problems such as anxiety, stress, grief, fear or pain.
Hello, I'm Lucy. I’m a Brit, living here in Oakville, Ontario. I love to run and to ride horses, and I’m loving exploring the great Canadian outdoors. I worked in Marketing for over a decade, but after having my second child I decided to seek out a better work/life balance by becoming a Reflexology Therapist. I studied at The Complementary Therapy School in London, England, under Melanie Bell and completed my Level 5 Practitioners Diploma in Clinical Reflexology, passing with Distinction. I am a certified member of the Reflexology Association of Canada making me a fully Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist carrying the RCRT ™ accreditation.
I am also a qualified Fertility & Maternity Reflexologist having completed my practitioner training with Michelle Stroud at By the Moon International Holistic Health School. This training helps me better support my clients as they are trying to conceive, to support them through infertility, and to provide the best possible treatment through pregnancy, birth, and beyond.
In 2022 I was voted Best Reflexologist in Oakville for a second year running, in the Oakville Readers Choice Awards.
In 2021 I added Reiki energy healing to my holistic practise after spending 18 months using Reiki for my own healing.
