In the Press:
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond to different areas or organs of the body.
Reflexologists work holistically with their clients to achieve better health and wellbeing. During these unusual times when it’s easy to dwell on our contact with other people, it’s good to know that reflexology is a mode of therapy where you are naturally socially distanced from your therapist, and only have to remove your socks!
“People tell me that their reflexology sessions have helped them to recover or better manage serious health issues, have less stress and enjoy life more, which just makes my heart sing. These comments prove the science is right, reflexology is a powerful way to resolve many health issues, and it’s a fantastic way for people to feel calmer, sleep better and feel less stressed,” says Rowena.
Reflexologists do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe. Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, and takes into account physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your wellbeing. Many people find it works for them – some don’t. The best way to find out if it works for you is to try it.
The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally. Usually, after a treatment, your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving. You may also find that other aspects improve too; however, this happens on an individual basis.
With ever increasing levels of stress in everyday life, it is important for people to take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs. Reflexology could be one of the ways to help you deal with the stresses of modern life. The initial consultation for new clients is FREE and easy to book here:
Whilst the art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China, this therapy was not introduced to the West until Dr. William Fitzgerald developed ‘Zone therapy’. He believed that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body within the same zone.
In the 1930’s, Eunice Ingham further developed this zone theory into what is known now as reflexology. Her opinion was that congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body. Her work has been developed and expanded on by reflexologists around the world up to the current day, and now reflexology can include the feet, hands, face and ears.
Reflexology is a therapy which can be received by anyone at any age, from newborn babies to those receiving end of life care, and everyone in between. There may occasionally be times when it is not suitable to provide a treatment. Just call and ask!
“I went to my first reflexology treatment an absolute wreck. I was hoping to gain some relief from the multiple migraines I was suffering from but I got so much more. My migraines have all but gone and I am a far less stressed person. I would be lost without my regular reflexology treatments. They make me feel great. Thank you Rowena.”
“I adore my reflexology treats! Rowena not only does a fabulous job easing physical pain she’s also wonderful at listening and the holistic approach to her treatments make them a well needed sanctuary every now and again. Thoroughly recommend.”
“I had a lovely reflexology treatment with Rowena and felt refreshed afterwards. The treatment room is gorgeous and very tranquil overlooking the garden. I look forward to my next treatment.”
“As soon as walk in I feel relaxed, Ro really does give you a fantastic experience. I always come away so positive and have made changes to my life style. The benefits of Ro’s reflexology are fantastic and I would highly recommend.”
“Had a beautiful Face Reflexology today! Completely relaxing and blissful. Highly recommend. Thank you Rowena.”

“Today I used my Mother’s Day voucher and enjoyed the most relaxing luxury facial reflexology treatment with Rowena. The treatment and tranquil surroundings were perfect…I hope to return for the same again!”
“I’m just passed half way through my pregnancy and I have had a number of treatments from Rowena. I’ve never had reflexology before and I can honestly say that after an hour with Row I feel totally relaxed and stress free. She has helped me relieve a lot of pregnancy symptoms through her treatments. I would totally recommend her and especially if your pregnant, especially if you want a bit of a pampering and me time. She really does have healing hands!”
“I had my first ever reflexology treatment last night. I was a little nervous, but Rowena put me at ease immediately. I can honestly say that it has been a very long time since I was that relaxed. It was an incredible experience, definitely one that I will be repeating. My feet feel wonderful this morning! Thank you so much Rowena.”
“I was made very welcome and immediately felt relaxed. I had lots of opportunities to ask questions and completely understood what would happen during the treatment. I felt so relaxed throughout, I fell asleep, which I never do in treatments. I enjoyed the whole experience and felt calm and relaxed afterwards. I loved this treatment and look forward to booking again with Rowena.”
“What a totally blissful start to the week. An hour of indulgent foot heaven and calming thoughts. Rowena doesn’t just have magic, soft, healing hands – she’s also full of sound advice. A very highly recommended experience. Just wonderful! Thank you so much xx”
