Reflexology is a relaxing and gentle therapy that can promote deep relaxation and wellbeing. The overarching effect is a reduction in stress and tension which lets you reset and rebalance, rebuilding good health and building resilience.
Whether you are male or female, young or old, reflexology has something to offer you from reducing stress levels to improved sleep and rejuvenation.
Reflexology works by approaching the body holistically. Your reflexologist applies gentle and repeated pressure to key reflex regions (zones) on your feet or face – these carefully researched zones correspond with specific body structures, organs and organ systems through meridians or channels. When an illness or stress occurs in the body, the corresponding energy meridian/channel can be affected, and that structure or organ may then start to present with symptoms.
Reflexology works to release these areas of dysfunction and helps restore the body’s natural balance. The gentle and rhythmic techniques instil a level of relaxation that can result in reduced stress and a feeling of euphoric wellbeing, many patients simply fall asleep for a short while during the session and awake refreshed, recharged and rejuvenated.
Life brings many stresses, from pregnancy, a busy life, work pressures, preparing for exams or approaching an important deadline. Ignoring yourself at these stressful times can get in the way of wellbeing, taking time out for yourself is a worthwhile investment, allowing you the time and space to grow, reset and unwind and so improve your chances of being more productive and healthier.
For centuries, reflexology was a treatment entirely applied to the feet, however recent advances in the profession have revealed that treatment can also be applied via zone reflexes found on the face and neck. The choice of what form of reflexology you receive is entirely yours, indeed many prefer one over the other or simply choose one of the premium packages that include a combination of both.
Catherine, our reflexologist, brings over 25 years of healthcare experience which helps bring a unique approach to her patient care. Fully registered with the Association of Reflexologists link – https://www.aor.org.uk/ she has undergone extensive postgraduate training including women’s health and pregnancy, finger free techniques, treating patients with cancer and hot stone reflexology
All treatments are available as standalone treatments or you can take advantage of our money saving packages when a course of treatment is required. Our reflexology treatments also make the perfect gift for a special friend or loved one – gift vouchers are available all year round.
When you visit, your practitioner will start by completing a health record, asking questions about your health, lifestyle and history so as to ensure that whilst the correct areas are paid suitable attention, any potential for problems can be discussed with you before, during and after your session
Dating back for almost 5000 years, foot reflexology is a treatment that we believe can aid relaxation, improve mood, release tension, enhance sleep and can generally improve well-being; allowing us to cope better with the stresses that life can bring.
Your session will commence with your footwear and below knee clothing removed, then your practitioner will gently cleanse your feet to prepare the skin and then apply a high quality ointment to help with the gliding nature of the treatment to follow.
As you lay back on our comfortable couch, we will encourage you to gently begin to unwind as you prepare to enjoy the peaceful journey of your treatment.
This holistic treatment follows the same principles (as well as having the same benefits) as foot reflexology. It is a deeply relaxing treatment where pressure and massage is applied to the reflex points of your face. In addition to the benefits of foot reflexology, many experience a more radiant, healthy looking complexion.
During the session your face will be cleansed, and a light elixir is then applied to your skin, therefore, it is advisable to only wear minimal make-up prior to treatment. Please note however, it is advisable to wait for 21 days after receiving any facial filler or cosmetic botox treatments.
You will experience a deeply relaxing combination of massage and gentle pressure on reflex points across all areas of your face whilst experiencing relaxing music and carefully chosen aromas in the room. As this is an especially relaxing form of treatment it is not unusual for some to drift off to sleep for brief periods.
Our products are high end, organic, vegan friendly and not tested on animals – please ask for more information on our specialist brands.
The Deluxe Reflexology Session
As the name suggests, this is a truly wonderful experience, and combines the best of both worlds. Your practitioner will tailor the session to focus on key reflex points on your feet combined with essential elements of the facial reflexology routine, all in one indulgent 90 minute session.
By combining both types of reflexology, you will benefit from an enhanced session where you will experience the benefits of conventional reflexology in combination with the tension relieving nature of the facial reflexology approach.
Side by side the two treatments naturally compliment each other and this is perfect for recharging those all too often drained energy reserves
The Stress Buster Facial Reflexology Treatment
As an alternative to the full facial reflexology treatment we also offer the 30 minute ‘Stress Buster’. This is aimed at those who are limited on time they can take out of a day and who just wish to experience 30 minutes of relaxing facial reflexology, purely to unwind and de-stress. It is perfect for short term stresses such as those created by our busy schedules, exam stress, work pressure or for those who just need some valuable ‘me time’ to reset.

I love my sessions with Catherine, the reflexology is so relaxing, and I love the smells of the creams and sprays she uses on my feet. I feel like I am walking on air when she has finished, and it is really helping me get through the menopause with ease.
My daughter was getting so ‘stressed out and irritable’ during her mock GCSE’s I thought I would let her have some reflexology with Catherine to see if this helped. It was amazing! It really calmed her down and I felt like I had my daughter back. I made sure that she had some more just before and during her exams. It really seemed to balance her and help her focus. I will do the same when she sits her A Levels.
I had been having chemotherapy and getting lots of side effects. My consultant suggested I have some reflexology to help. I have been seeing Catherine who has been fantastic. Not only did the nausea and neuropathy I was experiencing improve, I felt so relaxed at a time when I was very anxious. Thankfully, I have been given the all clear now but still have regular treatment for my wellbeing.
My baby was overdue, and I wanted to avoid being induced. I had tried the curries and long walks so thought I would give reflexology a go as I still was not getting any signs that this baby was wanting to come out. I saw Catherine in the morning, who worked wonders on my feet and helped me relax and amazingly within hours I started labour. I have continued to see Catherine to keep me balanced and help with my wellbeing postnatally.
