My interest in Reflexology was sparked 20 years ago when I enjoyed my first ever treatment whilst pregnant with my daughter. I was fascinated with the theory behind it and it amazed me how much the therapist could learn about my well-being just from touching my feet. Some years later I decided to learn to be a reflexologist myself, to help others in the same way I'd been helped.
Reiki, as it so often does, found me at a time I needed it. 14 years ago I experienced a taster treatment and was told I needed to become more grounded. At the time I was a little unsure of the significance of her words, although I thought about the treatment often. Roll on another 8 years and again, Reiki found me. Through unrelated circumstances I met my Reiki teacher at a time when I was ready to learn, and here I am. Both disciplines have changed my life for which I am very grateful, and take great pleasure in helping to make positive adjustments in the well-being of my clients.
Both Reflexology & Reiki are holistic healing techniques which means that the individual's mind, body & spirit are taken in to account when giving a treatment, which is why it's important that a thorough consultation is given. As a holistic therapist I treat the whole body and don't generally work on just one specific organ or system. I will treat symptoms but also aim to treat the cause, and aim to restore balance and harmony to whole body. Holistic therapies such as Reflexology & Reiki are becoming increasingly popular as they encourage & stimulate our body's own natural healing abilities.
I went on to learn Baby & Toddler reflex so that I could pass this invaluble tool on to parents and carers, empowering them to help ease and relieve many normal baby discomforts in their own children. I have been lucky enough to be able to use Baby Reflex with my grandson, and daughter, and so can personally highly recommend it. I feel very blessed to have such an incredible bond my grandson, and Baby Reflex has played a part in this. When he is feeling a bit tired or teething, grumpy or off colour, we snuggle up together and he will grab my hand and his feet and push them together, with a cheeky grin, which melts my heart. It's lovely to see such a calming positive response, and a super relaxed and happy baby boy, and to have been able to help him to feel better. Baby Reflex is a really special tool for parents, guardians and grandparents to learn, and can be continued as your child gets older, and passed on to further children and their children.
Baby Reflex can be taught 1-1 or in small groups, over 3 weekly workshops. I am looking to organise workshops here in Long Melford, and in and around Sudbury, Colchester, Bury St Edmunds, and Surrounding Villages.
Swedish Massage therapy and Indian Head Massage, were both treatments that I was also keen to learn because of their effective theraputic effects , and which fitted well with what I was already practicing. Again, both massage therapy and indan head massage are highly beneficial, relaxing the whole body, increasing oxygen levels in the blood, improving circulation easing tension and rebalancing the bodies energies. Both of these treatments may help with migrane's, tension and depression, to name just a few.
Massage therapy is a popular go to for stress and tension and I am planning to train in other forms of massage therapy over the coming months, to include warm bamboo massage, Thai herbal compress massage and manual lymphatic drainage massage, so please keep an eye out for updates on my website, social media and in Salon.
If you are experiencing conditions such as *stress *tension *hormonal imbalances *sleep disorders *digestive health problems *siatica *back pain *circulatory problems *anxiety and depression, or want to ask if I can help with something else, then please feel free to contact me, as I may very well be able to help. Treatments can be tailored to your needs, and combination of treatments can also be used if required.
At the begining of the year I trained in Spray Tanning, and chose to use VitaLiberata because their solution does not contain any harmful chemicals, is cruelty free, organic and vegan. This is a really lovely feel-good treatment, and is odourless, quick drying, flawless cover aswell as, of course being a safe alternative to the sun and sun beds.
I am based at The Beauty Cave in Long Melford and also offer a mobile service for people who are unable to travel for whatever reason, and can travel to surrounding areas and as far as Colchester and Bury St Edmunds.
If you are looking for a therapist and aren't sure if I cover your area, please don't hesitate to contact me, either by phone or e-mail.

Thai Herbal compress (also known as Luk Pra Ko - translated as herbal pressing sphere) has been used for hundreds of years in Thailand as a remedy for sore aching muscles, stress relief, exhaustion and other ailments. This is truly a wonderful treatment that is still little know in Europe. Herbs are wrapped in balls of cotton muslin, steams to release essentials oils and aromas, and the applied along the sen sib or energy lines of the body.
Compress Massage aims to loosen blockages and restore the body’s natural equilibrium and balance. It also relaxes the muscles and stimulates the flow of both blood and lymph. Compresses are excellent for stiff, sore or pulled muscles and ligaments; back pain; arthritis; chronic pain or injury; disorders of the internal organs; skin diseases, migraines, and chronic stress or anxiety. A Hot Herbal Compress adds to these benefits the healing effects of therapeutic herbs in patting, pounding and kneading actions. This traditional treatment has been practised to soothe muscle tension and stiffness in key areas. The combination of heat and medicinal herbs, is absorbed by the body to help reduce aches.
