World Reflexology Week 2023 - w/c 18th Sept 2023 - pair of footprints in sand

World Reflexology Week happens every year and aims to promote and raise awareness of reflexology around the world which is fantastic! This year it takes place from the 18th to the 24th of September.

Last year, I was on holiday in Portugal for the week so didn’t do any treatments but did have fun writing in the sand to promote it and lots of people stopped to look.


What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflex areas in our feet, hands and face which correspond to parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can mean many health problems that may be supported in a natural way.

It’s very different to a foot massage as it is based on physiological and neurological study and therapists will apply their knowledge and techniques depending on their client’s needs.

Specific techniques are applied to the reflex points on the feet and or hands improving blood lymph and nerve circulation which in turn relaxes the body encouraging our organs and glands to balance.

Reflexology is suitable for people of all ages and is very adaptable.  Many reflexologists will work out of a treatment room using a treatment couch and some may work on a mobile basis using a recliner chair or will adapt to meet the needs of their clients in their own home using their furniture.


Why did I choose to train as a reflexologist? 

I have always loved having reflexology treatments with my lovely friend Lisa and when I decided it was time to give up my career in Human Resources, Lisa encouraged me and helped me to find a course. I trained at the Reflexology Academy in London under the tuition of Hagar Basis who is one of the UK’s leading reflexologists and a true inspiration.


Where do I work?

I provide treatments on a mobile basis covering Halstead, Sudbury and surrounding villages around the Essex/Suffolk Border. I bring everything needed with me and all you have to do is sit back and relax and enjoy your treatment.  I also use a treatment room in Studio 2 Beauty and Wellbeing Centre in Castle Hedingham.  It’s beautiful and I really enjoy my time there too.


What do I do?

I have a wide range of clients and really enjoy working with them making sure I find a treatment plan that is right for them.  I am very passionate about supporting people undergoing, or who have had treatment for cancer.


I am also trained in:

  • Adaptive reflexology for palliative care and I strive to provide support with symptoms, pain management and general well-being to help achieve a better quality of life.
  • The award-winning Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD) technique, is known for its effectiveness in reducing swelling associated with lymphoedema which is often associated with breast cancer.
  • Functional Reflex Therapy – This is designed for children and adults of all ages with high levels of anxiety, intellectual difficulties, autism and additional needs. It’s a lovely relaxation routine focussing on specific reflexes to aid relaxation.
  • Maternity and Reproductive health – I really enjoy working with women at the pre-conception stage, during pregnancy and beyond.
