My Practice

Over the last 11 years, I have built up a successful reflexology/reiki practise. I run an established Reiki/Reflexology business in the Scunthorpe and Doncaster areas. I mainly work form my home in Belton, near Scunthorpe but for those people who are unable to travel to me, I also offer mobile treatments within the local area.

I have occasionally worked at 'Empathy', Scunthorpe, a support group for relatives of addicts, Lindsey Lodge Hospice and the Mental Health Group in Goole. I have also given talks and taster sessions at different institutes including the Thorne Family Support Group where I take part in pamper evenings for the carers.

The Way I work.
Every therapist develops their own way of working which is personal to them. I am just as happy giving a one off relaxation session, or a series of more in depth treatments. Every session I hold is geared to each individual and I will adapt the treatment by using varying degrees of Reflexology, Reiki and Acupressure depending on the needs of the client. I will regularly reassess and if necessary, make adjustments as needed. A persons requirements will often change as treatment progresses. The initial Reflexology session is usually of an exploratory nature. I use the information gleaned during this session, to formulate a suitable treatment plan if required. Over the years, the sensitivity of my hands has grown considerably and I can often pin point areas of sensitivity before a client tells me about it.

My personal experience of working the feet
In my experience, the feet accurately reflect the state of our bodies. If someone has a physical problem, the corresponding area of the foot will be sensitive in some way. I can find problem areas in the body by working on the feet. Sometimes I will find areas that feel constricted in some way ie. skin tension in the area I am working. There could also be a small lump or the skin might feel less pliable or as soft as it should. Other areas may feel grainy or 'crackly' as I run my fingers over the skin. The latter usually reflects tension in the corresponding area of the body such as muscle tightness in the shoulders or on either side of the spine. The way I work is an instinctive process, combined with a built up body of knowledge, acquired through training and experience.


What You Will need for a session
For home visits, I bring my own reclining couch and everything I need for a session other than a pillow and two medium sized towels. In my therapy room in Belton, you need bring nothing else but yourself, your bare feet and an open heart!
