Remedial Massage, Reflexology, Baby Reflex, Reflexology Lymph Drainage and Natural Facelift Massage in Taunton, South West Somerset

reflexology taunton #01Massage and Reflexology are two of the oldest therapies. They are increasingly used by people to help them cope with specific ailments and conditions, the stresses and strains of modern day living and recovery from sports injuries and clinical procedures. In recent years there have been many developments involving new massage and reflexology techniques and specialisations. Since qualifying in the year 2000, I have continued to add to my knowledge, enhance my skills and introduce new treatments.

Lymphatic system problems, the treatment of sinus ailments, fertility issues, pregnancy, and post-surgery lymphoedema are areas of specialty for me. Now I have trained in Baby Reflex to help mothers with their babies and toddlers. At the other end of the spectrum I have an interest in working with people in the early stages of dementia.

As well as having my own client base I work alongside physiotherapists at the Nuffield Health Hospital, Taunton.

People are remaining active for longer and are keen to maintain vitality in their looks as well as their bodies. Natural Facelift Massage is a wonderful approach to helping keep the facial signs of ageing at bay. It uses special massage techniques rather than lotions and potions. Those who have regular treatments have also reported benefits with regard to sinusitis and other sinus problems, migraines and insomnia.

I have recently trained in Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) researched and developed by Sally Kay. This protocol uses specific techniques on the feet aimed at reducing secondary lymphoedema, a swelling in the arm following treatment for breast cancer.

My Approach

As a complementary therapist I strive to connect with people on every level taking into consideration all aspects of their lifestyle and emotional well-being as well as their physical problems because they are all very much inter-connected. My approach is therefore a holistic one.

Where appropriate, I will offer suggestions for self-help as well as encouragement to take responsibility for your own health, making changes at a pace that will work for you. Once the body is back in tune, many people have treatments at regular intervals to help maintain their health and well-being.

My Background

For many years I ran my own outside catering business, which developed from a desire to create new and exciting foods. To help my staff cope with the long physically demanding hours that the industry sadly required, I often found myself giving neck, foot and back massages. My interest in massage and subsequently reflexology emerged from this.

I trained at the Raworth International College of Natural, Nutrition and Sports Therapies in Surrey, qualifying in 2000 before moving to Somerset to set up my own practice. I later began providing treatments at the Nuffield Health Hospital.


My practice is based in North Curry, Taunton, South West Somerset, close to the A358, A361, A378 and A38. It is easily accessible from Bridgwater, Wellington and Staplegrove. Free parking is available.
