Many people have hang-ups about their feet.  Rather than stand bare foot and proud, their feet remain in socks and shoes all day.  Our feet pound upon pavements, up and down stairs, squeeze into pointy shoes with high heels, dance away or we barely move them as we sit at a desk all day.


Our feet reveal a lot about our personalities and our physical selves. Little toes as our younger selves remain hidden away, second toes may be oppressed as with our creativity and long, tall people have long feet; short and round people have shorter and rounder toes.


Reflexology is believed to be of benefit in supporting those with:

  • Sleep issues

  • Digestive issues

  • Stress-related issues

  • Body discomfort



When you receive reflexology treatment to your feet you will notice benefits all the way up the body.  There are over 7,000 nerve endings located in the feet and having reflexology helps to restore balance and will relax your mind and emotions.  Many of us speed through our lives without any time to be still or find peace and quiet. Our feet often ache but because they are so far away from our minds, we ignore them, rushing about until we feel so imbalanced with fatigue and stress that we stop feeling our best.

What is reflexology?
  • utilises specialised techniques on the feet (or hands) using thumb and finger pressure

  • based on the concept that all the important elements of the body have reflexes that are located on the feet (or hands/ears)

  • the ‘reflexes’ are believed to correspond with the main systems of the body, and form a microcosm of the human body with the toes representing the head region all the way down to the bottom of the foot representing the pelvic area.  

  • working the reflexes is believed to help to correct imbalances and restore the body’s energy flow

  • believed to stimulate the nerve impulses to corresponding areas

  • allows our feet to communicate the stresses and strains of our lives and for us to acknowledge these and make changes.


Studies have shown that the benefits of reflexology include that it:

  • brings about deep relaxation

  • helps us to de-stress

  • relieves tension

  • improves wellbeing

  • enhances positive moods

  • increases restful sleep

  • harmonises the body to a state of peace and balance

  • is useful as a complement to mainstream healthcare


Reflexology is very non-intrusive and suitable for all ages and stages in life.  


Many people report that their feet feel amazing after a reflexology session and afterwards they realise how tense and stiff their feet were.  This can help with the overall movement of the lower limb.

What to expect:

Book your consultation first here.  

If treatment is suitable to go ahead then:  

During your reflexology appointment:

  • I will wipe your feet down with a cleanser first.

  • I blend reflexology with massage therapy warm up techniques.

  • I will observe and inform you of any obvious imbalanced reflexes found. 

  • Your feet may feel sore and tender if I find an area that is out of balance but this discomfort will be fleeting as I work to rebalance them.

  • You will feel very relaxed during the treatment (although it is ideal to remain awake so that we can discuss and react to what I am finding). I will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible.

  • You will also be given aftercare advice which may include some hand reflexology techniques you can use at home.

What should I wear?

For foot reflexology, I need to access your bare feet, ankles and the lower part of your leg. Please wear comfy clothing that I can easily access your feet; it is best to wear socks, not tights.  All that you will be asked to remove are your shoes and socks; the rest of your clothes stay on. You lie down on a recliner or couch so that I can access your feet. I ask that on the day of your session you wash your feet with your regular cleanser and water so they are fresh to work on.

How frequently do you need reflexology?

If you are working towards a specific issue then it is of benefit to have 2-4 sessions over successive weeks and then once a month after that for maintenance.  


What product do you use?

I use a beeswax-based reflexology balm or massage cream. I also have a vegan wax option.
