Welcome to Sole to Soul Therapies by Pam
in Ennis Co. Clare, Complementary Therapies for Relaxation, Health, and Selfcare.
Hello my name is Pamela Keating and I qualified as a Reflexologist in July 2021 with a Diploma in Reflexology and Holistic Studies. My passion for Reflexology came about a few years ago. I was unsure of where my life was going and struggled with stress, burnout and anxiety. I had known for quiet some time before that I needed a change of direction and took some time to focus on myself. I knew that my true passion was in helping people and that is when I came across Reflexology. The more I researched and read the more fascinated I became not just with the therapy itself but also the benefits and the effects it can have on people’s lives.
My approach to each treatment is completely bespoke and personalised to each client’s individual needs. Whether you want to reduce your day to day stress and anxiety levels, are looking for support from an existing health condition or would like just a little “me” time, my aim is to get you feeling happier, healthier and energised and I look forward to welcoming you to my treatment room.
I am an accredited member of the Irish Reflexologists Institute it is possible that some of the cost of your treatment may be covered by your health insurance provider.
Reflexology is a complementary and holistic therapy based on the principle that all the systems of the body are mapped out in reflex points on the feet, hands or face. By applying pressure and various techniques to different reflexes, reflexology brings a state of homeostasis (balance) to the body and mind.
Reflexology aims to treat the individual as a whole. Creating a state of harmony in mind, body and soul. It has the benefit of also being a deeply relaxing therapy. Reflexology is suitable for all ages and can be especially helpful for long term and recurring conditions.
Reflexology does not cure and reflexologists do not diagnose, As a complimentary therapy it should not be considered an alternative to conventional medicine.
Reflexology is a wonderful way of
maintaining your body’s healthy balance and wellbeing reducing the stresses and
tensions that now come with busy lifestyles. It also gives you that space to
reflect in mind body and soul.
Reflexology can induce a deep state of relaxation which improves the effectiveness of your treatment. During this state of relaxation reflexology helps to reduce stress & tension, aids circulation, increases your energy, improves your general wellbeing and also helps with the removal of toxins from the body.
While Reflexology is not a cure it can be
extremely helpful in managing many health conditions especially constant and
recurring conditions we might have over time come to accept as being a normal
part of our life.
Reflexology, whilst healing, rebalancing and extremely relaxing, can also invigorate and rejuvenate it can help treat the symptoms of many specific conditions including the following:
Stress & tension
Back & neck pain
Anxiety & Depression
… and many more.
The use of reflexology helps our bodies to work more efficiently meaning we are better able to conquer illness and disease from a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspect.
A treatment usually lasts around an hour. However, the first treatment includes an additional 20 minutes consultation in which I can get to know you, your medical history and what you are looking to gain from your treatments.
Yes! Other than removing your socks and shoes and rolling your trousers up to your knee, you don’t remove any clothing. I will also place a blanket over you so warmth and modesty will be retained.
Loose, casual and comfortable clothing is recommended as I will need access to your feet and the lower leg area. You will be reclined on my couch (bed) and you will want to be able to relax without tight clothing or belts digging in.
And don’t worry – reflexology doesn’t tickle! Many clients come to me with ticklish feet or worried about their feet being touched, but they find they can relax and enjoy the benefits of Reflexology.
Reflexology can be extremely relaxing however if there is a part of the body that is unbalanced or congested, the corresponding reflex may feel sore or tender whilst I work to rebalance the area. The discomfort will only last a short time as I work through the congestion and if necessary, I can move on and return to work on the area later in the treatment.
The number of treatments you will need depends on your ailment or condition, how long you have had it and what you are hoping to achieve.
If you are focused on a specific health issue, as reflexology has a cumulative effect and therefore a course of treatments is recommended for best possible results. I generally recommend that you have weekly treatments for at least 4 sessions and review it from there. Following your course of treatments monthly maintenance is then recommended.
If you are having treatment, to promote general relaxation and health, then I would suggest one treatment a month.
No. As a reflexologist I am not able to diagnose or cure medical conditions. If you have any questions regarding a medical condition, you should see your GP.
“Pam is an incredibly talented & extremely knowledgeable lady in her passion of reflexology. I was lucky enough to benefit from some wonderful sessions of reflexology for menopause which has greatly helped with sleep & anxiety & general wellbeing.

“I never realized how beneficial reflexology was until I went to one of Pam’s treatments. I have suffered for many years with sinus problems and my tailored treatments have been highly beneficial for my sinus issues. Pam is a very knowledgeable therapist, she takes time to explain the process to you and how it works. It is also a very relaxing treatment if you want to clear the head after a busy week. I’d highly recommended Sole to Soul Therapies by Pam.”
