Read in this testimonial, what one mum felt:

„I highly recommend Christina Petersen and her reflexology sessions. I am currently pregnant with my 3rd child and I wish I had known about Christina during my very first pregnancy…. Since my first session with Christina I have noticed a decrease in the amount and the severity of the headaches that I have been suffering from during this pregnancy.  I have also noticed an improvement in the reflux/heartburn which has been bothering me.

And yet the word that most comes to mind when describing Christina’s reflexology sessions is “calm”.  This is because I feel an overwhelming sense of calmness upon finishing each session.  It is a calmness that stays with me throughout the week and brings me strength.   And it is a word that is very appropriate to describe Christina herself.

Christina is a very gentle and caring woman who has real skills with people.  Christina has gently inspired me to take a more holistic approach to my life and to begin to make changes to enable me to prioritize my physical and mental health.

I really cannot thank Christina enough for all she has done for me.  She has been a gentle but inspiring presence in my life and I have come to treasure my reflexology sessions with her. Thank you“
