Reflexology is a complementary therapy based on the belief that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which are believed to correspond to all organs and parts of the body. Some practitioners may also include work on points found in the face and ears. Reflexology works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension.

During a typical reflexology session the reflexologist will take a detailed medical history. Sessions are usually performed in a comfortable chair or couch. If it is to be performed on the feet, the client will be asked to remove footwear and socks but other forms of reflexology require no removal of clothing. The practitioner will make a visual and tactile examination of the area to be worked before beginning the precise reflexology massage movements. The particular types of movements involved require the application of an appropriate pressure using the thumb, fingers and knuckles.

Reflexology can be a wonderfully relaxing experience where you can take time out from everyday pressures. The therapist’s expert touch will help you relax which can help improve mood, aid sleep and relieve tension. The result is an overall sense of wellbeing.

I have also undertaken specialist training in Reflexology for before and during pregnancy, Adapting Reflexology for Palliative Care, Lymphatic Drainage Reflexology, Auricular Reflexology, Precision Reflexology, Gentle Touch Reflexology and Finger Free Reflexology.

Reflexologists do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe.  I treat people holistically, that is I treat the individual person, rather than treating an illness.


I was formerly the Principal and tutor for Lotus Holistic Academy, in Leeds, teaching Reflexology.
