Due to the ongoing pandemic, my Practice is temporarily closed, but lockdown restrictions are gradually being eased in a phased process in England. The Government's Covid-19 Recovery Strategy stated that those offering therapeutic services (which comes under the category of ‘Personal Care’) would be considered at Stage 3 of the process, due to commence on 4th July 2020. This date has now passed and there is still no news for our industry...
The safety and wellbeing of my clients has - and always be - paramount, so I will continue to follow developments closely and will be guided by my professional associations - the Association of Reflexologists and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.
When I re-open my Practice, the usual high standards of hygiene that you are used to will have been enhanced and controls will have been put in place to minimise risks and ensure everyone’s safety. I have carried out additional training and am pleased to confirm that I will be adhering to the Association of Reflexologists Covid-19 Secure Workplace Policy. If you click the logo below, you will see the protocol that I will be following and how treatment sessions will be structured.
I am really looking forward to being able to provide you with some much-needed nurturing and relaxation therapy - when the time is right and I feel that it is safe and appropriate to do so.
Hello and a warm welcome to my website!
If you are trying to conceive or already expecting, you’ve come to the right place!
I have been a professional reflexologist for 18 years and run a thriving practice in north-west Essex - close to the borders with Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Hertfordshire.
For the last 16 years I have been a maternity reflexologist - offering specialised treatments to expectant mums in Saffron Walden and the surrounding areas. I offer postnatal treatments to help women recover from pregnancy (and the whole birthing process) and offer baby/child reflexology treatments too.
Pre-conceptual treatments are available for those planning to start a family, as well as treatments for those trying to conceive, who may have encountered fertility issues.
My peaceful therapy room is located in beautiful countryside close to Saffron Walden - with free and easy parking right outside - and can be easily reached from Stansted, Bishops Stortford, Thaxted, Great Dunmow, Haverhill and Cambridge.
Over the last 16 years I have felt very privileged to have supported hundreds of expectant mums throughout their pregnancies... I am passionate about what I do and my mission is to enable every woman to have the most wonderful pregnancy and positive birth experience possible!
As I offer a specialised pregnancy reflexology service, I see clients not only from Saffron Walden, but from the surrounding towns and villages of Essex, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Hertfordshire too.
How can reflexology help during pregnancy?
When you find out that you are expecting, you may be surprised at just how exhausted you feel... This often happens very early in pregnancy and can be very difficult - especially when you are struggling to cope with work and/or already have a little one to look after. You may also have started to experience some other common symptoms including:
- Morning Sickness and nausea
- Back pain
- Fluid retention
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Pelvic Girdle Pain
As your body will be going though huge changes over the next few months, it’s sensible to give yourself permission to rest and recover whenever you can!
Reflexology treatments may help ease many pregnancy discomforts and will encourage deep relaxation - enabling you to ‘switch off’ and have some quiet time with your baby - and they’ll also help soothe your body and mind too.
As your pregnancy progresses, treatments may become even more beneficial, as they’ll help prepare you - both physically and emotionally - as the arrival of your little one draws nearer.

Reflexology for Fertility
I have been using reflexology to treat those planning to start a family (and those who have encountered fertility issues) for many years and have seen how sensible lifestyle choices and regular sessions may lead to a happy outcome...
- Pre-conceptual treatments will ensure that you are in the best physical and emotional condition, which may help optimise your chances of conception.
- Treatments may help ease symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Endometriosis - perhaps contributory factors if you are experiencing fertility issues.
- Treatments may help regulate your menstrual cycle following oral/implant contraceptive use.
- Treatments can also support those undergoing Assisted Conception - helping to relieve anxiety and lower stress hormones, as well as encouraging relaxation at the deepest level.

Reflexology for Wellbeing
Reflexology is a gentle holistic therapy that provides an antidote to the stresses and strains of our busy lives...
Treatment sessions encourage relaxation at the deepest level and are a pleasurable and pampering experience. Reducing the symptoms of stress will improve your quality of life - potentially leading to enhanced sleep, a lift in mood and an enhanced sense of wellbeing.
As a Women’s Health specialist, I have often seen how reflexology can help regulate the menstrual cycle, ease symptoms of PMT and balance hormones naturally.
If you are approaching Menopause you may have started to experience troublesome symptoms, such as hot flushes, mood swings, loss of libido...
Why not let reflexology support you throughout this transition? Treatments could help reduce your symptoms, enabling you to cope better - indeed some of my clients have reported an increase in their energy levels and having a renewed zest for life!
There are many health conditions that respond well to reflexology, but here are just a few:
- Back and muscular pain
- Menstruation problems (irregular periods, PMS, hormone imbalance)
- Digestive discomfort (including IBS)

- Zone Face Lift - a deeply restorative and nurturing non-invasive skin enhancement solution.
