Maternity & Fertility Reflexologist for Essex and Cambridgeshire, Reflexology Saffron Walden


My practice has now re-opened for foot reflexology treatments only.

The safety of my clients has always been paramount and modifications have been 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.

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 each day.

Click the logo below for more information on the safety standards that are now in force and what this means for you as a client.

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!

I am a qualified maternity reflexologist, with a peaceful practice located in beautiful countryside near Saffron Walden, Essex. My therapy room can be easily reached from Stansted, Bishops Stortford, Thaxted, Great Dunmow, Haverhill and Cambridge and free and easy parking is provided right outside.

I have over 18 years experience as a reflexologist and, since completing specialist training 16 years ago, I've worked extensively with maternity clients and those trying to conceive.

  • I offer nurturing and specialised treatments, to help ease many common discomforts of pregnancy - such as nausea, morning sickness, constipation, heartburn etc. Sessions will support and prepare you for the arrival of your little one and get you ready for the best possible birth experience!

  • Calming postnatal treatments will help restore balance to your body and mind after your baby's birth and are a well-deserved treat after nearly 10 months of carrying them!

  • Baby reflexology can be a wonderful way of soothing your little one after their delivery and may help ease discomfort from constipation, colic or teething... Even the tiniest feet can be treated!

  • Pre-conceptual treatments may help balance hormones naturally and ensure that you are in the best possible condition to start a family.

  • The deep relaxation that reflexology provides, can be a wonderful way to ease tension and stress, if you have encountered problems with your fertility.

  • If you are undergoing assisted reproduction technologies (including IVF or ICSI), I am able to support you throughout your journey... Many clients find their sessions invaluable to help them cope with each stage of the process and reducing stress may improve your chances of a successful outcome!

    Maternity Reflexology

    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
    • Heartburn
    • Constipation

    • Fluid retention
    • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
    • Hyperemesis
    • 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.

    "I can't thank you enough for helping me with my fertility journey - both the reflexology and the long chats were absolutely invaluable and I doubt Jemima would be here if I hadn't come to see you for treatment."

    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:

    • Stress
    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Back and muscular pain
    • Menstruation problems (irregular periods, PMS, hormone imbalance)
    • Digestive discomfort (including IBS)
    • Insomnia

    "I’ve been seeing Clare for reflexology for several years now and can highly recommend. Not only is it the most relaxing treatment, but Clare is such a lovely calming person & has really helped me. ”

    Caroline P., Saffron Walden
