Covid 19 - Coronavirus
Following government guidance my clinic is temporarily closed
I have posted some self help videos under Self Care and Client Downloads and my Facebook Page , but please do get in touch with me either by phone, email or Facebook for any advice or support you may need during this time.
Everyone will have their own way of dealing with this pandemic but below are some of the things I have found useful:
- Limiting my access to news reports and social media
- Keeping to a relaxed routine - small things such as styling my hair, putting on make up and changing out of my pyjamas during the day!
- Practising meditation, yoga and tai chi each day - I now have time
- Crafts - for me this is crochet - I find it very relaxing
- Baking cakes or bread and cooking from scratch
I look forward to welcoming old and new clients when this pandemic is over.
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.
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 - my particular favourite is Woman's Balance with Geranium and this is a popular choice with my clients. If you want to create that spa like feeling at home you can order Neals Yard Products direct from my website or contact me & I can order on your behalf.
