What is Reflexology
& how does it work?
The art of Reflexology dates back to ancient Egypt and works on the principle that each organ or part of the body is represented by reflex points on the feet and hands.
Our health depends on all the thousands of parts of our body and mind working in harmony together. Too much strain on a particular area can knock our whole system out of balance. Reflexology is a non-invasive, natural therapy that works by applying gentle pressure and massage to these reflex points, helping to help clear congestion, relieve tension and allow the body to return to a state of ‘homeostatis’ a term which refers to a balanced state in the body and mind.
Reflexology may be able to help with many ailments but you do not have to be unwell to benefit from this lovely treatment. Reflexology is very relaxing and calming and may also be used as a preventative to ill health by helping to improve the overall functioning of the body’s systems.
Please note – Reflexology is not a medical treatment. It does not diagnose or claim to cure, it facilitates the body’s own natural healing processes. It can be used alongside, but should not be used in place of conventional medicine.
A relaxing reflexology treatment on the feet or hands, tailored to your specific needs. Perfect to completely unwind and let the stress fade away.
£45 – 60mins
£40 – Children (age 5-15)
Hot Stone Reflexology
Basalt Stones are used to enhance the traditional reflexology treatment. Deeply relaxing for body & mind. Let the warmth of the stones soothe your tired feet and calm your senses.
£50 – 60mins
Please note – if you have Rheumatoid arthritis, Osteo-arthritis or a skin condition where inflammation is present, I will need to avoid those areas with the hot stones. In addition if you have vein or nerve damage in the legs, or are elderly with very thin skin, I will need to avoid using the stones on your lower legs but I can still use them on your feet. Treatments will be adapted accordingly. Hot Stone Reflexology is not recommended for first trimester of pregnancy (although it can be used safely in the second and third trimesters), during IVF treatments or for anyone who has heart disease/high blood pressure that is not controlled by medication.
Combine a soothing Indian Head Massage with a relaxing reflexology treatment to leave you feeling completely refreshed. Bliss!
£70 – 90mins
Infertility – Reflexology can be used alongside some medical treatments or if medical examinations have been inconclusive, then it can be used on it’s own or in conjunction with other complementary therapies. Reflexology can assist women or couples through their journey and working with both partners can be very beneficial.
Pregnancy Care – Reflexology may help with many pregnancy-related physical discomforts as well as soothing anxieties and stress prior to giving birth. Reflexology is one of the most popular complementary therapies used by women before, during and after pregnancy as it is believed to help to facilitate a state of harmony and well-being. The popularity of reflexology has grown due to the effective results people have experienced. I certainly get a lot of referrals from women I’ve treated during their pregnancy!
Before booking, please check with your Consultant, GP or Midwife if you have a history of miscarriages or previously experienced premature labour, placenta previa or bleeding.
Post-natal Care – During pregnancy your body goes through many months of physical and emotional changes and after giving birth many women feel that they need a little help finding themselves again. It is believed that reflexology can help to return your body to a pre-pregnant state supporting your physical and emotional well-being.

"I long for my reflexology appointments each month as it's my time to relax, and wow does it relax me. All my stresses and strains are melted away and I usually fall asleep. I generally have trouble sleeping but once I've had my treatment my sleeping pattern changes for the better. I couldn't recommend Kate enough."
"I have been seeing Kate for reflexology for about 4 years now to help prevent my migraines (and an excuse for some relaxation time). Kate has been able to give me regular and reliable appointments, skilled and lovely reflexology with care in comfortable surroundings"
Michelle, Dunton Green
"Kate is extremely pleasant, professional and caring. I have been visiting Kate for many years for Reflexology and always feel very relaxed during and after the treatment. Any health issues I present with are addressed and I always feel so much better and pain free after a session. Highly recommended!"
"I love having reflexology with Kate as it is so relaxing and after the treatments I am much more agile. Kate's choice of music is perfect and I always come home afterwards completely chilled out. I would definitely recommend."
Heather, West Kingsdown
"I am a late convert to Reflexology and was introduced to to Kate by my daughter 3 years ago. I look forward to my appointments. My heart rate begins to fall and I am totally at peace and able to relax. Kate has now added a wonderful facial treatment to her repertoire. This is accompanied by some lovely music and delightful, natural products to leave you feeling rejuvenated. "
"I believe the regular Reflexology treatments from Kate helps to keep my body and mind in check and enables me to deal with the stresses and strains of life and a peri-menopausal body! Thank you Kate for your healing hands!"
"For me the benefits of regular reflexology treatments include a feeling of deep relaxation and calm, like having a full body massage, but just on your feet! Kate is lovely - always professional, caring and patient. She is constantly seeking to develop her skills and range of treatments, all of which benefit her clients. I can thoroughly recommend a visit."
Sarah, Dunton Green
"I have been having Reflexology with Kate for several years now. My stress levels are far more manageable with her help, and I always feel more relaxed and sleep very well after a treatment. She always finds my weak spots - lower back, sinuses and knees and sorts them out - such a relief! Plus I can't remember the last time I had a headache, which is brilliant. I can thoroughly recommend Kate's treatments, indeed I couldn't be without them."
Sandy, Borough Green
"I've been seeing Kate for around 9 years now, mainly for Reflexology. She is knowledgeable, gentle, easy to talk to and takes a holistic approach. The sessions are relaxing, calming and a good nights sleep always follows."
"If you haven't yet experienced the benefits of Reflexology then please do so, but ensure you are in the hands of an experienced therapist. I have been visiting Kate for several years now and she is an exponent of this often underestimated practice. Kate also gives the most relaxing Indian Head Massage I've ever had and has now extended her craft by offering holistic facials."
"I have been having Reflexology with Kate for some time now and I have found it benefits both my physical injuries and my mental well-being. The treatments are very relaxing and therapeutic and I can strongly recommend this treatment."
