Who do you treat?

Reflexology is gentle and non-harmful, but there are some situations which may mean it is not the most suitable treatment.

Please do not book or attend an appointment if you have any coronavirus symptoms.

Reflexologists cannot diagnose medical conditions. If you have any health concerns, contact your GP.

If you are under the care of a physician, please consult them before booking. Reflexology works brilliantly alongside conventional healthcare. Do give me a call if you have a condition you would like to discuss.

Reflexology is wonderful for supporting mental health, but please seek specialist help if you feel your symptoms are lasting a long time or interfering with your normal life.

Check with a podiatrist if you suspect you have a contagious foot or nail condition.

It is not appropriate to treat a client with fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, infectious disease or DVT. 

You should wait at least a week before booking an appointment after having a vaccination, having an IUD fitted or finishing a course of antibiotics.

Facial reflexology is not recommended with fillers or botox.

Reflexology is not usually recommended in the first trimester of pregnancy. It is, however, hugely beneficial to feel relaxed while trying to conceive and during the final 6 months of pregnancy so this is a very good time to enjoy reflexology. There is anecdotal evidence that it can help induce labour, if the baby is ready. It is also a very nurturing and restoring therapy during the 4th trimester and it's no problem if the mum wishes to cuddle or breastfeed the baby during the treatment.

Teenagers can benefit enormously from reflexology, particularly if suffering from anxiety, low self-esteem or exam stress. Signed permission is required from a parent or carer of under 16s, and any findings or recommendations will be discussed with the parent or carer so they can decide how much to inform the child.

Short, adapted treatments can also be lots of fun and very beneficial for babies and young children. Parents can easily learn techniques to enjoy with their little ones.

Elderly people can also gain many benefits from reflexology, although it may take several sessions to begin seeing improvements in chronic conditions. If mobility or tender feet make reflexology difficult, I can work with the hands instead. 

Many people with ADHD or ASD find reflexology particularly grounding and relaxing.

I am only prepared to work in a smoke-free environment.
