Hello and a very warm welcome to my website
Reflexology in Saffron Walden, Maternity and Fertility Reflexologist for Essex and Cambridgeshire.
I have been a professional Maternity Reflexologist for over 16 years, offering specialised Pregnancy and Pre-Conception Reflexology treatments to clients at my Practice near Saffron Walden, Essex.
My peaceful therapy room is located in beautiful countryside near Saffron Walden, yet can easily be reached from Thaxted, Stansted, Bishops Stortford, Great Dunmow, Haverhill, Cambridge and Braintree.
I have assisted on Maternity Reflexology training courses around the UK and have worked on a voluntary basis within a hospital Maternity Unit - where I was able to see just how wonderful Reflexology can be at helping to calm and ease pain during labour!
I am a Member of the Association of Reflexologists, and am on the NHS Choices Register. I am also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). A recent report by the Royal Society for Public Health and the Professional Standards Authority found that:
"Practitioners registered with CNHC support public health by encouraging their clients to make a range of lifestyle changes. These include improvements to diet and nutrition, support with giving up smoking and losing weight, support with reducing stress, improving sleep, managing pain and other symptoms, as well as overall enhancements to wellbeing. All CNHC registrants are committed to enhancing the UK public’s health and wellbeing."
During the time that I have been a Maternity Reflexologist, I feel very privileged to have been able to support hundreds of expectant mums throughout their pregnancies. I am passionate about enabling women to have the most comfortable pregnancy and positive birth experience that they can!
As I offer a specialised Pregnancy Reflexology service, I see clients from the Saffron Walden area and much further afield - from Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Hertfordshire.
But what can Reflexology do for you during Pregnancy?
Well maybe you have started to experience some of the more common symptoms of pregnancy:
- Morning Sickness and Nausea
- Back pain
- Fluid retention
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Pelvic Girdle Pain
Your body will be going though considerable changes whilst you are pregnant, and Reflexology treatments may be able to help ease many of these conditions... They will certainly encourage deep relaxation and enable you to have quiet time for you and your baby - helping to soothe body and mind too.
As your Pregnancy progresses, Reflexology treatments will help prepare you - both physically and emotionally - for the birth of your little one.

Reflexology for Fertility
I have been offering Reflexology to those planning to start a family, or trying to conceive, for many years, and have seen how sensible lifestyle choices and regular Reflexology treatment sessions can lead to a happy outcome...
- Pre-Conceptual treatments may enhance your Fertility and ensure you are in the best physical and emotional condition to optimise your chances of conception.
- Treatments may help ease symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Endometriosis - perhaps contributory factors if you are experiencing fertility problems.
- Treatments may encourage regulation of the menstrual cycle following oral/implant contraceptive use.
- Treatments can also support those undergoing Assisted Conception - helping to relieve anxiety and decrease the production of stress hormones, as well as encouraging relaxation at the deepest level.

Reflexology for Wellbeing
The gentle holistic therapy of reflexology provides an antidote to the stresses and strains of our busy lives. Treatment sessions will encourage relaxation at the deepest level and are a pleasurable and pampering experience. Reducing stress and increasing relaxation may lead to an improvement in your quality of life - including enhanced sleep, a lift in mood and a renewed sense of wellbeing.
You may be approaching Menopause and have started to experience troublesome symptoms, including hot flushes, irritability, mood swings and loss of libido. Reflexology may help you cope better through this transition - helping to balance hormones in a natural way - indeed many clients report an increase in their energy levels and a new zest for life.
There are so many health conditions that may respond well to Reflexology. Here are just a few:
- Back and Muscular Pain
- Menstruation Issues (irregular periods, PMS, Hormone Imbalance)
- Digestive Disorders (including IBS)
I hope that you find the information on these pages helpful, but please don't hesitate to get in touch here or call me on 07794 8936925 if you would like any further information.

Whilst I do appreciate that appointments sometimes need to be rescheduled, please be aware that if you give me less than 48 hours notice, I reserve the right to charge you 50% of the total session fee, unless I am able to fill your appointment.
If you give me less than 24 hours notice, I reserve the right to charge you the total cost of the session - as there usually won’t be enough time to offer the appointment to someone else. Whilst I do not like having to do this, it has become necessary to ensure the smooth running of my business.
