Covid 19 - Coronavirus
Due to Lockdown 3.0 I have temporarily closed and will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.
In the meantime please go to Self Care and Client Downloads there are hand reflexology videos for you to practise some self care or if you want to work on your own feet have a look at this footmap
To ensure a safe practise I have put in place the following procedures:
On arrival to clinic clients will be asked to either sanitise or wash their hands.
Face coverings are to be worn by both myself and my clients for treatments
A risk assessment will be carried out before each treatment on whether it is safe to treat
I will change my uniform for each client
All sheets, towels and blankets will be washed and replaced after each client.
My treatment room will be cleaned and aired for at least 30 minutes between appointments.
If you are feeling unwell or have been in contact with someone who is suspected to have Covid-19 please cancel your appointment.
Reflexologist in Barnstaple, North Devon
Reflexology is a complementary therapy based on the belief that there are reflex areas in the feet, hands and face which are believed to correspond to all organs and parts of the body. It works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension.
It's a very relaxing and restorative therapy and provides an excellent way of relieving stress and tension. It may help support you with many conditions including anxiety, depression, migraines, stress, insomnia, PMT & menopausal symptoms as well as digestive disorders. It can also relieve any muscle or ligament tension in the foot, ankle or lower leg.
I was delighted to be asked by North Devon Healthcare NHS Trust to film some hand reflexology videos for The Fern Centre to help support patients and their families who are living with cancer.
The first video shows a short routine to warm up the hands prior to reflexology, so view this first then take your pick of the routines from the Fern Centre website.
What can Reflexology do for me?

Feet are so important to good health, if you wear shoes which are too tight or injure your foot it can affect how you place your foot when walking and ultimately have an effect on your health and well-being.
I now offer Structural Reflexology sessions which combine reflexology with massage to the feet and lower legs along with a gentle mobilisation of the feet. It aims to release tension in the feet as a result of muscle and ligament strain and it allows the bones of the feet to settle back into their position with improved functionality.
I have always been interested in complementary therapies and believe that good health & vitality comes from eating well, keeping active, having a good work life balance as well as recognising the benefits of rest & relaxation.
I completed my diploma with Devon School of Reflexology in 2016 and I'm still continuing to learn so much more about reflexology. I'm a member of the Association of Reflexologists and I'm fully insured to practise as a reflexologist. I love working on the feet, face or hands - I find it fascinating and I have attended a number of courses since qualifying.
I'm delighted to have been selected as the AoR Ambassador for Devon Area.
My role is to raise awareness of the benefits of reflexology and the importance of choosing a therapist who is registered with the Association of Reflexologists (MAR). The AoR promotes the highest possible standards for reflexology training and practise.
If you would like me to come along to your group to talk about the benefits of reflexology please do get in touch. I'm also happy to attend public health and well-being events to promote reflexology for self care or in the workplace.
I truly believe in natural beauty care and always use products that I would be happy to use on my own skin so I make sure there are no synthetic ingredients in them and I always want my products to smell great.
As a reflexologist I use natural balms on the feet from a lovely company called Flying Wild based in Ireland. Arno is a beekeeper & his passion for beekeeping has grown into a small rural business producing handcrafted organic holistic therapy products. All the balms are handmade using sustainable and natural ingredients.
I love the smell of essential oils and I use pre-blended massage oils at the end of my reflexology treatments. I fragrance my treatment room with a variety of pre-blended oils from Neals Yard - to help support the immune system I am using Organic Defence which is a cleansing blend of lemongrass, niaouli and thyme. If you want to create that spa like feeling at home you can order Neals Yard Products direct from my website there is free p&p for all orders over £40 or contact me & I can order on your behalf.
