With stress a contributory factor in 75% of illness diagnosed, alternative therapies are one of the ways to mitigate the stresses of modern life. People often ask how many appointments they need but this really depends on the reason for their visit. Some clients book a one off treatment whilst a maternity client will see me throughout their pregnancy. Reflexology can help; improve your well being, reduce your anxiety levels and give you a better nights sleep. I get quite a few messages from clients who contact me the day after to tell me how well they slept after their treatment. The expectation that we need to be constantly on the go means that we get very little time to sit down and rest. In my treatment room in Basingstoke (RG21 3LL) you will find that time seems to stay still for the duration of your treatment.
I qualified in September 2012 (over 10 and have since undertaken a LOT of training courses to compliment my original training). I offer just as many facial reflexology treatments as foot reflexology (I can combine the treatments too so you benefit from the best of both worlds!) I don't have a set routine or start and finish routine as every client has their own unique reason for coming to see me. I can easily apply Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) protocols, traditional reflexology and reflexology for the Menopause in one 60 minute treatment.
I work from my very relaxing treatment room in Basingstoke, Hampshire - only 10 mins from Hook. Please refer to my facebook page for recent feedback from my clients and images on my website of my treatment room. I am a proud member of the Association of Reflexologists (AOR) and the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists (ARR). The membership of these two organisations proves that I am trained to a high standard and ensure my knowledge is always up-to-date. As a member of the ARR I regularly take part in webinars to discuss complex cases in order to assist my fertility clients. It is such an incredible feeling when a fertility client announces their pregnancy!
I can help with; fertility issues, fibromyalgia, stress, pain, pregnancy, auto-immune conditions, peri-menopause, menopause and many other conditions.
I am trained in RLD (Reflexology Lymph Drainage) - an award winning reflexology technique by Sally Kay which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. The aim is to stimulate the function of the lymphatic system and drain excess lymph from the damaged area using a unique sequence. This technique can be used to help with conditions other than lymphoedema including; arthritis, asthma, eczema, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, ME, sinus problems. migraines. headaches, muscular tension, aches and pains and pre-menstrual syndrome.
Please do take a look at the different of reflexology treatments I offer!

You can choose a specific treatment or a value so your loved one can choose their own treatment. A great present for someone who is looking for; reduced stress levels, improved sleep and increased well-being. Many clients who book with a voucher become regular clients! I am fully insured and passed my one year diploma with the International Institute of Reflexology (IIR).
If you / your loved one isn't a 'foot' person then I offer a combined 30 mins Indian Head Massage followed by a 30 mins Facial Reflexology Treatment which is so extremely relaxing! It is not uncommon for clients to fall asleep. I use Neal's Yard Rose Facial Oil during all my Facial Reflexology treatments which makes the treatment feel luxurious.

It is suitable for both men and women of all ages and can help treat for; relaxation, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, release of tension, improved sleep, improved mood and increased well-being.
I offer a range of daytime appointments on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (usually at 9.15am, 10.40am, 12.15pm and 1.40pm - although times can vary). My treatment room is located in RG21 3LL so perfect for those who live in Basingstoke, Hampshire and surrounding areas including Hook and are looking for a reflexologist nearby. If there is a space on my drive outside 8 Meadow Road then you are welcome to park there or immediately outside my treatment room if finding a space is a problem). Reflexology improves your well being and when my clients leave me they look and feel so much more relaxed than when they first arrived! I do offer a monthly Saturday appointment.

A Typical Session
I will send you a client consultation form in advance of your first treatment to ensure you receive your full one hour session. This one page A4 form asks you questions relating to your medical history and lifestyle (this form allows me to put a bespoke plan together and takes less than 5 mins to complete). I require the full payment upfront for your first treatment only (I provide you with my bank details in your confirmation email).
Just before the treatment I will ask you to remove your shoes and socks and lay back in my very comfortable couch which is fully adjustable. You may wish to wear leggings, tracksuit bottoms or loose trousers to make your experience more comfortable. If you are coming from work in your work attire then that is totally fine.
The treatment is not ticklish as I use a firm but comfortable pressure when working on your feet. Once the treatment has finished you should feel very calm and refreshed. It is important to ensure you drink plenty of water after the session and the next day.
Having completed a course of treatments you may find it beneficial to continue with regular sessions to maintain health and well-being. My clients really feel the benefit of their regular sessions.
Is it safe to during your pregnancy?
Absolutely! I was trained in reflexology for pregnancy with the amazing Sally Earlam (a member of the AOR Board) and have been lucky enough to work with a number of amazing clients - many of whom have had really positive birth experiences. Some clients visit me weeks into their pregnancy whilst others wait until their three month scan. I work with clients to improve the side effects of their pregnancy -morning sickness, PPGP (pelvic pain) and tiredness to name a few. Clients travel from Andover, Hook and Odiham to come and see me with their bumps.
