I was first introduced to reflexology by a friend back in 2003 when I was suffering with my own health issues and from the very first treatment, I loved it.  At the time, I was working in a pretty stressful job and the reflexology enabled me to switch off and relax. Several years later, I decided to retrain as a reflexologist and holistic therapist and have never looked back. I have worked with many pregnant women looking for reflexology support and I have done a great deal of extra training in this specialist field. 

That said, whilst many of my clients are pregnant, my work is not exclusively maternity related and I see individuals for all sorts of different issues. I have a love for all things beauty and have trained in different types of facials including the natural face lift and I teach facial Yoga having trained in the Danielle Collins method.
 
I am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists, the UK’s professional body for reflexology, the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council, the UK regulator for complementary healthcare. 

Treatments Offered

I provide bespoke treatments including Reflexology; Reflexology for Maternity and Fertility; Sports, Deep Tissue and Aromatherapy Massage; Indian Head Massage; Neal's Yard Remedies Holistic Facials; Natural Face Lift Facials and Facial Yoga. 
 
From working for sports professionals and rugby clubs to supporting woman’s health and providing holistic health and beauty treatments, my wealth of experience and expertise focus on pre-conception and fertility support, physical and emotional health and well-being, relaxation, sleep and balance, pain relief and injury recovery and skincare and anti-ageing.
