My story

"I love helping women to optimise their health and wellbeing - whatever stage of life they’re at!”

My story. Me Apr23

I first discovered reflexology when I was looking for a cure for my panic attacks… they’d appeared out of nowhere and they seemed to have taken over my life.

As I’d always been capable and confident, experiencing such extreme physical and emotional symptoms was really frightening. But I know that I’d ignored some early warning signs that something was wrong and my body was showing me that enough was enough.

When I went along to my first reflexology session, I wasn’t sure what to expect, as I really didn’t like my feet and couldn’t imagine having them touched! But the experience was incredibly relaxing and that night I had the best sleep I'd had in months.

As a busy mum with two boys under four, life was always pretty hectic, so the reflexology treatments allowed me to have some regular 'me-time'. After several sessions my panic attacks had started to diminish and I had begun to feel so much better.

Talking to my lovely reflexologist was very cathartic and being in a safe space really helped. A confidential, non-judgmental and nurturing environment aids recovery and this is what I provide in my therapy room today.

Because of the wonderful way that this gentle therapy had worked, I felt inspired to start my training to become a reflexologist… I knew that I wanted to help others just like me - and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done!

And now, twenty one years later, I still love my job and I’m passionate about optimising every woman’s wellbeing - whatever stage of life they’re at.

So whether you’re expecting a baby, struggling with fertility issues, approaching menopause, or just feel in need of some stress relief and relaxation - reflexology is wonderful and may be able to help!
