Why do my clients come for reflexology?
Well, I asked a few of my regulars and here are a few of their replies:
"It's really relaxing"
"It helps with pain relief"
"It makes me feel less stressed and able to sleep"
"It helped me with my foot pain, but I now come regularly because it makes me feel so relaxed"
"It's my time, once a month, to relax and recharge."
Covid 19 - Coronavirus
Now, more than ever, it's so important to relax and take time for yourself - it can help you take the ups and downs of life in your stride.
It's very important to me to ensure my clients feel comfortable and safe when they attend their appointment.
To ensure a safe practise I have put in place the following procedures:
I am fully vaccinated for Covid-19.
On arrival clients will be asked to either sanitise/wash their hands.
Face coverings are to be worn by both myself & my clients.
A risk assessment will be carried out before each treatment on whether it is safe to treat
My treatment room will be cleaned and aired for at least 15 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 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.

VRT - Vertical Reflex Therapy
I am an authorised member of the Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT) Network.
This therapy works on weight bearing feet and hands for a short time before and after your traditional treatment. I also access some points on the nails, it can accelerate the healing process.
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.
