Clare Minter Therapies will be re-opening on Monday 3rd August 2020, for foot reflexology treatments only.
I’d like to assure you that I’ve been making preparations and undertaken additional training, to ensure that it will be a COVID-19 Secure Workplace. The safety of my clients has always been paramount and modifications are being made to my therapy area, in order to meet the strict regulations laid down by both the Government and my professional association - the Association of Reflexologists.
Please note that I am currently rescheduling appointments for clients whose bookings were cancelled due to the pandemic and will then take bookings for existing clients - before offering appointments to new clients.
To ensure everyone's safety, very thorough and essential additional cleaning routines will be carried out between sessions and this means that I'll be able to see fewer clients per day. I hope that you'll understand and bear with me!
If you'd like to be put on my waiting list for an appointment, please message me and I’ll be in touch as soon as I can!

Hello and a very warm welcome to my website!
If you are trying to conceive or are already pregnant, you’ve come to the right place!
My peaceful practice is located in beautiful countryside near Saffron Walden, Essex - and is easily reached from Stansted, Bishops Stortford, Thaxted, Great Dunmow, Haverhill and Cambridge. Free and easy parking is provided right outside.
I have over 18 years experience as a reflexologist - and for 16 of those, I've been a qualified maternity reflexologist!
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)

Did you know that I offer other treatments too? Gift Certificates are available to purchase.
- Facial Reflexology - a wonderful way to ‘switch off’ a busy brain and achieve a natural radiant glow!
- Zone Face Lift - a deeply restorative and nurturing non-invasive skin enhancement solution.
- Hot Stone Reflexology - enhanced relaxation with warming thermal stones - deliciously comforting during the colder months of the year!

DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, MY CANCELLATION POLICY HAS BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Please note that I will contact you to carry out an essential Risk Assessment, 24 hours before your treatment session.
If there are any changes to your own health (or a member of your household’s health) after this has been done, please contact me immediately to postpone your appointment.
We can reschedule your session at a later date. This is essential to prevent the spread of the disease and ensure that infection rates remain low.
THANKS FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION AND UNDERSTANDING.
