My name is Alex Petty and I’ve been a Homeopath, Reflexologist and Reiki Practitioner for many years.
In the mid 1990’s an interest in complementary therapy led me to train in Reflexology. Some years later my own health issues, in the form of persistent tonsillitis, led to my first experience of homeopathy; the result was so miraculous that I later decided to become a homeopath myself. Since then I have continued to seek, learn about, and experience the innate self-healing ability we have through giving and receiving holistic and homeopathic therapy.
In 2014 I moved to rural Norfolk and, following the restoration of our current home, launched my very own Restoration Room; a long awaited space in which to bring together the therapies I love into one integrated holistic practice.
I passionately believe that using treatments and therapies which treat the whole person instead of just the disease is the way to restore and maintain physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. All too frequently however, I find that people consider receiving these to be a bit of an extravagance rather than a part of their regular health care.
In the fast paced, busy world we live in it’s easy to rely on what we think are quick fixes and forget the fundamentals; whilst I’m an advocate of feeling better as quickly as possible, these fixes rarely come without a cost and can leave us feeling low or with seemingly new problems.
Stress has far reaching effects on our health and its symptoms are an increasing issue for many of us. It’s not always possible to eliminate stress, but taking time to relax, breath properly, address niggling health issues early, feed ourselves well, support our immune systems and have a balanced outlook on life are all important factors in ensuring we boost our resistance to disease and remain well.
It’s often beneficial to go back to basics and look at our health in simpler terms, and from a more natural point of view to see what truly helps us to feel good in the long run, and what doesn’t. Understanding and working in harmony with what are our bodies and minds are trying to express, eliminate, mend or change is really key to this approach.
