Reflexologist for Women’s Health and Wellbeing, Saffron Walden and Stansted, Essex

Including Maternity and Fertility Reflexology and Reflexology for Menopause

Welcome. CNHC small

If life feels overwhelming right now, I’d love to help you!

I have been a professional Women's Health Reflexologist for over 21 years and I'm passionate about helping you to
improve your health and wellbeing - whatever stage of life you’re at.

Reflexology is a gentle holistic therapy that may be helpful for a wide range of health conditions including Anxiety, Insomnia, Digestive Issues (IBS), Hormone Imbalance and Perimenopause symptoms (including Hot Flushes and Night Sweats).

As reflexology encourages deep relaxation, it’s a wonderful way to relieve the pressures of modern life…

Each nurturing treatment session will take you away from your everyday cares and help you to unwind and 'switch off' completely.

Specialised treatments and wellbeing support are available for Pregnancy, Fertility and Menopause.

”Clare is just wonderful and provides so much more than a simple reflexology session… she looks at your overall health and guides you in the right direction for any problems you might have with detailed advice. Could not recommend more highly, always float out after a session!”

    Taking care of yourself shouldn't be seen as an indulgence...

    If you make time to look after your own physical and emotional needs, you'll be able to carry on caring for the special people in your life.

    When mind and body are in harmony:

  • You should sleep well and feel rested upon waking
  • Your digestive system should work efficiently and you shouldn't suffer with constipation or bloating
  • You should feel emotionally resilient

  • Reflexology is an holistic therapy (meaning ‘whole’) and to be completely well, equal focus needs to be given to your physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

    These aspects will be explored during your initial consultation and you’ll discover how some small lifestyle changes could help improve your overall wellbeing.

    The reflexology treatments themselves should help you to feel less stressed and more relaxed (or sometimes more energised).

    “ My treatment was wonderful. Clare is very thorough and considerate in her approach to clients. She has helped me think about my self care at a time when it could easily have dropped off my list. I recommend her wholeheartedly and without reservation.”

    It can take a healthy couple up to twelve months to conceive, but if you’re starting to feel anxious, why not try some stress-busting reflexology?

    Reflexology for Fertility treatments may help to:

  • Relieve feelings of anxiety
  • Reduce stress hormones, that disrupt the reproductive process

    Maternity Reflexology

    Does reflexology help you to have an easier labour?

    I’ve been a Maternity Reflexologist for over twenty years and feel very privileged to have supported hundreds of expectant mums throughout pregnancy.

    Pregnancy reflexology sessions are a nurturing experience for any mum-to-be and can be a wonderful way to connect with your little one.

    * Research has shown that reflexology in the later stages of pregnancy can lead to women requiring less pain relief and having faster birthing times

    * G. Motha and J. McGrath - 1992 "The effects of reflexology on labour outcome".

    Regular reflexology treatments towards the end of pregnancy, may result in you having an easier labour!

    The soothing treatments may also reduce pregnancy discomfort including Nausea/Morning Sickness, Constipation, Heartburn/Acid Reflex and Pelvic Girdle Pain.

    Pregnancy Reflexology treatments may help to:

  • Ease discomfort
  • Promote better sleep
  • Relax and prepare you (physically and emotionally) for birth
  • Relieve muscular tension - towards the end of pregnancy this may encourage the onset of natural labour

  • To prepare for the best possible birth experience please get in touch here.

    Balancing Hormones

    As women, we’re governed by hormones, that fluctuate widely throughout our lives!

    The action of hormones causes powerful physiological changes within a woman’s body.

    Extreme hormone imbalance may cause the complex health conditions Endometriosis and PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome).

    Unfortunately these conditions may make conception more difficult, so you can find out more about Reflexology for Fertility here

    Bloating, Breast Tenderness and Irritability are common before a menstrual bleed, but if symptoms persist for a large part of your menstrual cycle, this could be a sign of PMS (Pre Menstrual Syndrome).

    Reflexology treatments may help to:

  • Encourage deep relaxation
  • Lift low mood
  • Ease muscular tension and help reduce pain
  • Calm cortisol production and naturally balance hormones

  • Feedback from clients following their treatments has shown:

  • A reduction in pre-menstrual pain
  • Regulation of the menstrual cycle
  • A more condensed flow
  • Reduced bloating
  • Improved mood

    Please get in touch here to book your first session.

    Perimenopause and Menopause

    Struggling with Hot Flushes/Night Sweats?

    Menopause can be a time of emotional upheaval, but it may be physically challenging too…

    It's hard to exist on just a few hours sleep, when you’re trying to cope with work and family responsibilities.

    You may be affected by just a few, or many of the numerous symptoms of perimenopause that include:

    • Irregular or Missed Periods
    • Scant or Heavy Menstrual Flow
    • Hot Flushes
    • Night Sweats
    • Insomnia
    • Bloating
    • Loss of Libido
    • Brain Fog

    • Body Odour
    • Vaginal Dryness
    • Dry Eyes/Mouth/Skin
    • Hair Loss
    • Bladder Problems
    • Anxiety
    • Low Mood
    • Reduced Confidence

    If you’re over the age of 40, declining hormone levels are usually to blame and symptoms are seen as a natural part of the ageing process.

    But this doesn’t make it any easier and if you feel your quality of life is being affected, seek help as this is now more widely available.

    If you’re keen to try an holistic approach, some calming reflexology can be an effective way to relieve the anxiety you may be feeling.

    During an initial Reflexology for Menopause session, we’ll explore how simple lifestyle changes can reinforce the effectiveness of the treatment and help you cope better with this stage of life.

    You may also wish to visit your GP to discuss other options…

    Reflexology works well alongside Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and provides additional calming support.

    * Research has shown that reflexology can reduce vasomotor symptoms (hot flushes/night sweats) and improve the quality of life for menopausal women

    * (E. Gozuyesil, M. Baser, Complement Ther Clin Pract. 2016 Aug;24:78-85. doi: 10.1016/j.ctcp.2016.05.011. Epub 2016 May)

    Reflexology for Menopause treatments may help to:

  • Promote restful sleep
  • Encourage deep relaxation
  • Relieve anxiety
  • Reduce Hot Flushes/Night Sweats
  • Lift low mood
  • Enhance a sense of wellbeing
