15/09/21 - Maternity Reflexology

My client who I saw during her pregnancy came to see me just before lunch on Monday for a treatment (she was 40 weeks + one day pregnant) and she gave birth at 2.56am the following day.

Magic! Congratulations to my client and her family!

06/09/21 - Reflexology for Menopause

I have now filled all my places for Reflexology for Menopause! Thank you. If you have sent me an enquiry then please don't worry I will be able to book you in.

03/09/21 - Reflexology for Menopause - I Passed!!

I am thrilled to confirm that I passed my Reflexology for Menopause course yesterday! I am so pleased that my clients will benefit from my new skills which will be available from Monday 4th October. I have one space left for a new client to join me. Please contact me asap to book in.

24/08/21 - Reflexology for Menopause

I am so excited to bring my new knowledge and skills to my clients. I am only accepting a couple of clients at a time as my diary is pretty full with my extremely local existing clients so if you are interested please do book in!

19/08/21 - Reflexology for the Menopause

I am launching Reflexology for the Menopause from Monday 4th October! I will be offering reflexology techniques and lifestyle ideas for supporting women through menopause. This will cover the perimenopause, menopause and beyond.

At your first appointment I will give you a leaflet, created by myself, with advice covering the five factors for healthy menopause; Diet, Exercise, Relaxation, Sleep and Purpose. This will simply summerise everything you need.

12/08/21 - Supporting other Local Businesses

I am loving my new light up floral display from Niche Surprises! The colours compliment my room so well! I love supporting other small businesses in Basingstoke.

23/07/21 - Air Conditioning Unit

My air conditioning unit has certainly proved to be a hit with my clients! It has been a life saver for me over the past few days. If I am melting it is difficult to focus on giving my best treatment possible for each and every one of my clients.

10/07/21 - Summer Holidays

Gosh I can't believe it's been two months since my last post but I have been blown away with how busy I have been. Thank you to each and every one of you that have booked in. I have received some wonderful feedback from clients - many come for private reasons so I don't always like to put their reviews up. I am working over the summer holidays but won't be offering as many appointments which is why I am not able to accept new clients at the moment. Thank you for your understanding.

10/05/21 - Availability

I do occasionally list my availability on Facebook but if you wish to book in the best way is to either drop me an email ([email protected]) or give me a call (07801 968 211). Sometimes it is best to discuss a more complex requirement for reflexology (e.g. where you have been trying to conceive for a while) via a telephone call.

02/05/21 - Happy Bank Holiday Monday!

I hope you all have a fantastic three day weekend. I know some of my clients are keyworkers so I hope you get a break later in the week.

23/04/21 - Appointments

I am nearly fully booked week commencing 26th April so please do get in touch if you wish to book in. It has been wonderful to see new and existing clients over the past two weeks. So many clients have fallen asleep during their treatment with me I think I am going to call it 'Post Lockdown Reflexology!'

05/04/21 - Good News! I am Reopening!

I am so excited to be reopening on Monday 12th April. I have contacted all my clients whom I had to cancel from January and then I will list my availability on Facebook on Wednesday.

29/03/21 - What are the Benefits of Reflexology?

There are so many benefits of reflexology - release of tension, relaxation, improved mood, aids sleep and promotes wellbeing.

27/03/21 - Don't Forget the Clocks go Forward Tonight!

Just a gentle reminder that the clocks go forward tonight! I can't wait for the lighter evenings.

26/03/21 - Booking an Appointment

I made the decision not book in any appointments until the Government confirms my opening date (I am hoping the opening date of 12th April will be confirmed on 5th April). Last year the opening date for reflexologists was pushed back by two weeks. Don't worry I haven't taken any bookings and have plenty of time to get you booked in. If I book you in for the first week and the date is pushed back I will get in a terrible pickle!

24/03/21 - Thank You

A huge thank you for keeping in touch with me since I have been closed by; sending me messages, liking my Facebook/Instagram posts and commenting on my social media. It really means a lot to me to know you are waiting to book in. I am so organised I have even completed my tax return for 2020/21 and am waiting to send it to my Accountant on 5th April!

15/03/21 - Competition Winners

Thank you to everyone who entered my competition for your chance to win one of three Spacemasks. The winners have been listed on my Wendy French Reflexology Facebook page.

I am running a competition on my Facebook page until 8pm on Saturday 13th March. Pop over to my page to enter. Good luck!!

08/03/21 - Price Increase from 1st April 2021

I will be increasing my hourly rate from £35 to £38 (you experience a full 60 mins of relaxation with me) and my 90 mins treatments ('Pure Bliss' treatments) from £55 to £58. This is my first price increase since September 2016. I spend a huge amount of money on training each year to give the very best treatments to my clients. In the past 12 months alone I have been trained in Spinal Reflexology, Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) and taken part in a Post Recovery Care Course to benefit my clients in so many ways:

- Post viral recovery - including Covid-19
- Post-operative recovery
- Post chemotherapy and/or radiation
- Post pregnancy
- Chronic fatigue (short or long term)
- Any post recovery situation (from a common cold through to major injuries and disease)
- Acute and chronic conditions

28/02/21 - A Spring Clean is a Must!

As well as spending time on training I have just purchased a lovely unit for my room. Over the next few weeks I am going to have a good sort out so I am even more organised than usual. I do love having everything in the correct place!

23/02/21 - A Little Update from Me

Following on from the announcement yesterday I have taken the decision to wait until early April for the Government to 100% confirm that I am able to open on 12th April. If I book in appointments now and the date moves I will be in a pickle! Trust me, I am desperate to book you all in!!!

I also wanted to let you know that I will be increasing my hourly treatment rate on 1st April 2021 to £38 (my first increase since September 2016). I have been trained by the best reflexology trainers in the UK to ensure you get the best results.

A week ago I passed my Post Recovery Care Course to help my clients suffering from; Post viral recovery (including Covid-19), Post-operative recovery, Post pregnancy, Chronic fatigue, any post recovery situation and acute & chronic conditions.

17/02/21 - Post Recovery Care Course

On Saturday I took part in a Post Recovery Care Course (via Zoom) and I already know my new skills will make a difference to my clients!

Post Recovery Care is a term designed to apply to acute and chronic imbalances where symptoms continue afterwards.

It can be applied to many situations including:

- Post viral recovery - including Covid-19
- Post-operative recovery
- Post chemotherapy and/or radiation
- Post pregnancy
- Chronic fatigue (short or long term)
- Any post recovery situation (from a common cold through to major injuries and disease)
- Acute and chronic conditions

I miss you all and am loving the 'Girls Night In!' online facial reflexology sessions in the meantime. By the end of this week I would have seen 10 different groups! I have received wonderful feedback from clients!

Ps) I thought I would dress dress up today! (a present to myself for home-schooling).

05/02/21 - A Huge Thank You!!

I am truly touched with how popular and fun these 'Girls Night In!' evenings are! I have carried out 3 already and have another 7 in the diary!
Mums & daughters, a birthday do and a girlie bestie night are just some of the reasons people have booked in.

29/01/21 - Virtual Facial Reflexology Sessions

18/01/21 - Cervical Cancer Prevention Week

Cervical cancer may not cause any symptoms or the symptoms may not be obvious. The most common symptoms of cervical cancer include:

- vaginal bleeding that is unusual for you, including after the menopause, after sex, or between regular periods
- changes to vaginal discharge
- pain or discomfort during sex
- unexplained pain in your lower back or between your hip bones (pelvis).

It is important to remember that these symptoms usually happen for reasons other than cervical cancer. But it is also important to contact your GP straight away, so they can give you reassurance and support. For further details and support please click here.

14/01/21 - Fertility Consultations are moving to Zoom!

I am missing you all!!

I am looking to move my Fertility Consultations to a Zoom call over the next week or two. So if you were booked in for January I will be in touch. I did this during the previous lockdowns and this worked really well.

13/12/20 - Wendy French Reflexology is Proud to Provide a Gift Voucher for a Local School

26/10/20 - Spinal Reflexology Course

In September 2020 I took part in a Louise Keet course in London entitled 'Spinal Reflexology'. You always hope that a course will make a difference to your clients well-being and this certainly didn't disappointed! By working down the spinal reflexes it allows me to target the organs and glands associated with that area. For example by working the cervical 1 reflex it can help with; headaches, insomnia, high blood pressure, chronic tiredness and dizziness. Conditions such frozen shoulder enable me to target where the cause may be on the spinal reflex(s) rather than just working on the shoulder.

23/10/20 - I am now fully booked until 9th November!

Thank you all so much for keeping me busy! I am fully booked now until 9th November! Please do get in touch if you wish to book an appointment after that. Such wonderful feedback from a client this week who enjoyed a Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) .....

"Once again you have worked your magic and my puffy feet are back to normal, all in the space of 1 hour! Thank you so much."

15/10/20 - A Huge Thank You!

Thank you to all my clients who book in and recommend me to their family, friends and colleagues. I never expected to be so wonderfully busy! This is a dream job!

10/10/20 - World Mental Health Day

Today is World Mental Health Day. Everyone's experience of mental health is different. Make time today for a friend, colleague or family member who might need someone to listen to them.

05/10/20 - Another Client is Pregnant!

I am delighted to confirm that one of my Fertility Clients is pregnant! It is early days but still extremely exciting. If you are experiencing fertility issues and wish to talk to me in person please do not hesitate to contact me on 07801 968 211. Thanks, Wendy.

18/09/20 - Pink Hand Sanitiser is coming to Wendy French Reflexology

In the next week or so you will see pink hand sanitiser at Wendy French Reflexology. This purchase will go towards supporting Breast Cancer Now one hand wash at a time! £1 per litre sold will be donated to Breast Cancer Now, this is expected to be in excess of £100,000,!!

07/09/20 - A Huge Thank You!

Thank you so much to all of my clients for keeping me so busy! My clients are enjoying the benefits of Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) - this is included in each of my treatments. RLD is an award winning reflexology technique which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. The aim is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system in the body.

RLD may be useful with the following conditions: Arthritis, Asthma, Eczema, Chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia, ME, Sinus problems, Migraines, Headaches, Muscular tension, Aches and pains and Premenstrual Syndrome.

28/08/20 - The power of Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD)

I received some wonderful feedback from a client with oedema in her feet and by the end of her treatment her feet had literally shrunk. She sent me the following message "Thank you so much for my treatment today. My ankles are still “normal” and when I went to town afterwards my sandal strap kept slipping down!!!".

19/08/20 - Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) - Case Study Approved!!

I am so excited to confirm that I am now an approved Reflexology Lymph Drainage Practitioner!!

Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) is a ground breaking and multi-award winning technique, which can be used to help reduce lymphoedema after treatment for breast cancer. RLD is also useful for clients with other (non-cancer related) more common conditions. The aim is to stimulate the function of the lymphatic system and drain excess lymph from the damaged area, using a unique sequence.

RLD may be useful with the following conditions: Arthritis, Asthma, Eczema, Chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia, ME, Sinus problems, Migraines,
Headaches, Muscular tension, Aches and pains and Premenstrual Syndrome.

16/08/20 - Fertility Consultations

It is interesting how many clients comment that I don't seem to promote my fertility reflexology treatments to potentially new clients. This is simply because word-of-mouth spreads the success of fertility reflexology. Those that have fallen with me tell me tell their friends who are trying to conceive. I am really proud of my membership of the Association of Reproflexologists (ARR) as there will never be an end to learning about new findings/research covering infertility, PCOS, Endometriosis and frequent miscarriages to name a few. I always have my head in a reflexology book/website/blog and frequently attend the ARR Question & Answer sessions which enable me to privately discuss complex questions regarding my clients to a fertility specialist.

09/08/20 - Saturday Appointments!!

I will be releasing some Saturday appointments shortly for a Saturday in August. If you follow me on Facebook (Wendy French Reflexology) you will be the first person to see them!

02/08/20 - Availability

Please do keep an eye on both my website and Facebook page for details of my availability. I have appointments available week commencing 10th August:

Wednesday 12th August @ 2pm
Wednesday 12th August @ 3.30pm
Thursday 13th August @ 2pm
Thursday 13th August @ 3.30pm

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to book in.

21/07/20 - Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD)

RLD (Reflexology Lymph Drainage) is 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. Lymphoedema is defined as tissue swelling due to the failure of lymph drainage. After breast cancer a person may experience psychological or emotional difficulties due to altered body image, and a swollen limb can exacerbate this. The entire treatment takes place on your feet which is deeply relaxing and uses very light pressure.

Reflexology Lymph Drainage is very similar to Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) except the treatment takes place on the feet so it is less invasive.

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.

10/07/20 - Great News! .................................. Wendy French Reflexology is officially opening on Wednesday 15th July!

I can only offer foot reflexology as I can't work near the face (for now).

In the meantime here is some helpful information:

1) My treatment room is a Covid-19 Secure Workplace - everything will be cleaned and disinfected.
2) Please bring a face mask with you (I have reusable ones available to purchase for £1.50 each).
3) Please use the hand sanitiser available when you arrive and leave.
4) I will contact you in advance of your appointment to run through a Covid-19 Risk Assessment. Without this your appointment can't go ahead.
5) Please could you make your payment online to avoid any cash transactions.
6) Please limit the items you bring with you.

And lastly ................. I can't wait to see you and offer some amazingly relaxing reflexology!!!!!

06/07/20 - Reflexology Wine!

I seriously think I need to start practicing soon! Even my choice of wine is reflexology related!

30/06/20 - Fingers Crossed it Won't Be Long!!

Thank you so much for all your messages asking when I will open. I am waiting for the Government to make that decision and will let you know as soon as I can. I have moved my Spanish holiday to summer 2021 so I can offer more appointments once I can open.

Look after yourselves. Kindest regards, Wendy.

25/06/20 - Hopefully I will be able to open soon! ..........

I am sure you have seen in the media in the last 24hrs but the AOR have confirmed that reflexologists are not permitted to open just yet.

I am desperate to see you all but I need that green light. Fingers crossed it happens soon!


11/06/20 - Support from the Association of Reflexologists

It feels amazing to be a member of the Association of Reflexologists right now. The support they are giving is unbelievable and makes you feel safe you are part of an organisation.

03/06/20 - A Little Update from Me...

I am busy working in the background getting my company ready for when the Government gives my industry the green light. The earliest date will be 4th July.

I am painting my two internal doors so they can be wiped clean. I have ordered alcohol based hand sanitiser, fitted sheets to go over my couch (so they can be washed at 60 degrees after each client) and made many other changes to keep you safe.

I am not keen to book in clients just yet in case the Government pushes the date back but I will keep you posted!

These procedures will be in place to keep you safe......... but at the same time I can assure you that your treatment will be super relaxing!

30/05/20 - One of my fertility clients is pregnant!!

That amazing feeling when a client announces they are pregnant!


22/05/20 - Facial Reflexology via Zoom with The Pink Place in Basingstoke

It was such a pleasure to demonstrate Facial Reflexology via a Zoom call with the lovely clients at The Pink Place this morning! The demonstration included using teaspoons to work on our forehead (to cover the head and brain reflexes).

This is definitely a time to give something back.


20/05/20 - Covid-19

The Association of Reflexologists (AOR) have released extremely useful documents regarding Covid-19 to support my business. There is a lot of planning going on in the background at Wendy French Reflexology to ensure processes are in place to keep both myself and my clients safe. I am fortunate that my treatment room is separate to my house and I always have 30 mins between clients which will enable me to give my room a total clean down between clients. I also don't have a waiting room so clients won't cross over. Thank you so much for your support.

14/05/20 - Update

I have received a number of inquiries this week asking when I might open which I am really touched by. According to the Government Monday 6th July would be the earliest I could open but this date cannot yet be confirmed.

I am super proud that I passed my 'Covid-19 Infection Protection and Control' course in the meantime. The course has given me a fantastic insight into how I can keep my clients safe.

Whilst I am closed I am taking part in online courses, Q&A sessions with the Association of Reproflexologists and creating policies for when I reopen to keep you all safe.

I miss you all!

08/05/20 - The Pink Place, Basingstoke

I am incredibly humbled to be invited by The Pink Place to give a reflexology demonstration via Zoom towards the end of April!

I am going to cover reflexes on the hand and face to leave the ladies feeling amazing!

I ran the London Marathon in 2018 and raised over £1,700 for The Pink Place. Please do check out this amazing charity.

02/05/20 - Eco Friendly Therapist

I am delighted to confirm that I am an Eco friendly therapist! Everything I do in my company and use in my room takes the environment into account. I love using Herbal Health & Home products to clean my room (their products don't contain any nasties) and is a local company in Basingstoke. When I can offer treatments again I am converting from towels to muslin cloths (a lot less washing and drying!).

23/04/20 - I am Loving the Zoom Calls with my Clients!

I absolutely love keeping in touch with my clients via FREE Zoom calls! They are so easy to set up and at the end of the 15 mins my clients have been thanking me for taking the time for them - actually they are doing me a favour as I love to see how they are doing. I am kept in touch with several fertility clients who are able to do their hand reflexology 'homework' which can really make a difference!
