My love affair with reflexology began over 15 years ago. I was having a tough time and I decided to try something new. For me it was transformative. I felt like a different person. I told everyone who would listen what an amazing therapy it was and even trained at the time to practice, but my life took me in a different direction.

I was a nurse for just over ten years. I loved my job but I felt more and more that preventative medicine was the way forward. Modern life is very stressful. By finding time for ourselves to relax, the body can recuperate and begin help itself. Reflexology can be a part of this journey. It is not only deeply relaxing but it gives us clues to where our issues lie - physically and emotionally. Reflexology supports health and after years working in healthcare managing disease, I feel the time has come to focus on the amazing work our bodies are capable of when we create the right environment for them to thrive.

Recently I qualified to practice the McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release technique (MSTR). This has enhanced what I do already because, like reflexology it works on removing the restrictions in our bodies that prevent it from working at its optimum. The results I have seen have been truly amazing! Scars can have a huge influence on our presenting problems: reducing blood and lymph flow; causing restrictions in the fascia; weakening muscular strength; inhibiting joint movement; causing anxiety and self-image issues to name a few. MSTR may help with all of these. I am so excited to add this wonderful treatment to the services I provide.


Following advice from the government and my professional body (The Association of Reflexologists), there are a few changes that I have needed to make to keep us as safe as possible when you come for your treatment after lockdown:

  • You will be asked to wait outside until I come to the door to let you in. 

  • Only those who have made an appointment will be permitted to enter. There will be no 'walk-in' appointments for the time being.

  • There will no longer be a waiting area in the salon but there will be chairs outside if you need to wait.

  • There will be hand sanitiser outside, which you will be required to use before you enter the salon.

  • You will be required to wear a face covering when you enter the salon. I will also wear a face covering that will be changed after every client.

  • Where possible we will do your consultation over the phone before you come to the salon. Treatment room time is now limited, so this will enable us to have maximum hands on time.

  • I will call you the day before to carry out a risk assessment, so we both feel confident that we are well enough to treat and receive a treatment. 

  • Payment by card on the day of your treatment is preferable. You can pay via paypal or BACS the day before your treatment if this works better for you.

  • The treatment room will be fully cleaned and aired for 30 minutes between clients. All linen on the bed will be changed and the couch and pillows sanitised. Hard furnishings will also be cleaned.

  • I will no longer offer you water following your treatment, so please feel free to bring your own. 

Although things will have changed a little, you can rest assured that you will still enjoy the same relaxing experience that I have always offered and believe me when I write that there has never been a better time to have reflexology than now. I look forward to seeing you again when we're allowed!
