About Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient therapy first recorded in Egypt in 2,330 BC. The practice of Reflexology has since then spanned the world becoming refined through experience to be the complementary therapy recognised today.

Reflexology is a therapy that is based on the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all parts of the body; these reflexes are worked through pressure and massage.

Reflexology helps to relieve stress and tension; it helps to improve blood supply to all parts of the body; and it helps to rid the body of toxins. In this way Reflexology helps the body’s systems achieve balance so the body can then heal itself.

I treat men, women and children of all ages with various conditions and stress-related health issues. I know that Reflexology can help people feel better.

About the Reflexologist

I began studying Reflexology in 2012 at the Maureen Burgess School of Reflexology, in East Grinstead. I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists. The Association is closely linked to both the RiEN (Reflexology in Europe Network) and also the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) and has representation at the Parliamentary Group for Integrated and Complementary Healthcare (PGICH).

I have completed further specialist courses including Focused Reflexology for female reproductive health; Power Reflexology for use in the workplace; and reflex points and techniques for back problems, as well as continuing to learn about many other related subjects including the body’s energy system and how thoughts and intention affect it.

I was a tutor at the Maureen Burgess School of Reflexology from 2016 – 2018. I set up and now teach Refresher and Advanced Reflexology workshops for Reflexologists and teach Self-Help workshops to non qualified people.

In my previous life I have worked as a nurse in Jersey; for social services in Buckinghamshire; and part-time as a Paralegal in Sussex working in the field of personal injury and then family law, until finally concentrating full-time on Reflexology from 2016. I have a BA (Hons) (1985) from Keele University and a post-graduate Common Professional Exam (Law) (1994) from Brighton University.
