About me

I am a qualified professional Complementary Therapist with a passion for natural therapies. I graduated in clinical Reflexology in 2011 at the International Institute of Reflexology (IIR) and have since continued to expand my skills and techniques to include a range of other natural therapies and post-graduate reflexology courses.

I have worked in a range of settings including private practices, social care settings and wellbeing events and have enjoyed the different challenges and experiences that this has brought to my practice. My therapies include Reflexology, Maternity Reflexology, Thai Foot Massage and Facial Rejuvenation - Natural Facelift Massage.

I've recently moved to the hilly streets of South Bristol and am practicing at the Wells Road Osteopaths clinic in Knowle and at Hamilton House on Stokes Croft.

My approach is to respond to the unique needs of each client, focusing and tailoring each treatment accordingly - everyone is different. I combine my variety of techniques and experience with a calm and restorative approach, to promote wellbeing and bring into balance the body, mind and emotions.

I look forward to supporting you to better health.

About Reflexology

Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive holistic therapy. It is based on the principle that there are reflex areas on the feet and hands which correspond to all the organs, glands, and parts of the body.

Reflexology uses a unique combination of finger and thumb pressure applied to these reflex points to promote positive physiological changes in the body. Stimulating these reflexes can help with many health problems in a natural way.

A reflexology treatment is tailored to each individual client and seeks to restore balance, improve circulation and blood supply to the body, encourage relaxation and invigorate the health of the client.

Maternity Reflexology

Reflexology is a wonderful treatment to receive when you are pregnant and specialist techniques are used to relieve and prevent all the conditions associated with pregnancy.

Using reflexology may also be really beneficial for couples seeking to conceive, for pain relief during labour and to help stimulate a faster healing process post-natal.

Thai Foot Massage

Thai Foot Massage developed around 20 years ago as an offshoot of Traditional Thai  Massage which has been practiced in Thailand for centuries.  Techniques from Traditional Thai Massage have been combined with elements of Chinese, Japanese & Korean reflexology, Shiatsu and Chinese massage to produce a treatment both stimulating and incredibly relaxing.

The treatment includes working the 'Sen' lines, a network of energy channels in Traditional Thai Medicine similar to the nadis and meridians of Ayurvedic medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine respectively.

Each treatment lasts one hour and follows a sequence which covers the knees, lower legs and feet using oils, working dry and using a specialist stick to work reflex points.  Brisk movements, precise pressure and long strokes give the recipient a wonderfully invigorating experience.

The relaxation that Thai Foot Massage brings to the feet and ankles and the muscles in the legs makes it a great treatment to receive, particularly for those who do lots of cycling or running.

Other benefits of Thai Foot Massage include:

  • Improving circulation in the feet and legs - great for diabetics & pregnant women

  • Stimulating lymphatic drainage – removing toxins and boosting immunity

  • Encourages flexibility of the feet and ankles and relieves tension in the legs

  • Promoting general wellbeing and better sleep

  • Stimulates the body’s organ function

  • Aids elimination

  • Relief and prevention of tension, headaches, migraines, sinusitis & pre-menstrual syndrome


Facial Rejuvenation (Natural Face Lift Massage)


Facial Rejuvenation (also called Natural Face Lift Massage) is a natural, holistic treatment developed by Kundan and Narendra Mehta using ancient Ayurvedic techniques.

The treatment focuses on the face, head and neck using the hands to perform specific techniques that require no cream, oils or special equipment.

The specific techniques of Facial Rejuvenation work to free constrictions in the collagen and elastin fibres of the face and neck, ease tension that has built up in the muscles, as well as improve blood and lymphatic circulation and rebalance energy.

You may find that you benefit from a more vibrant, glowing and youthful appearance with improved skin tone, skin condition and elasticity. You may also find a reduction in puffiness, wrinkles and expression lines.

The treatment is incredibly relaxing and focuses on improving overall wellbeing and general health by using Ayurvedic energy balancing and stimulating acupressure points.  This may benefit people who have trouble sleeping or who suffer from stress-related conditions, as well as people who have sinus-related allergies.

Facial Rejuvenation may provide one or more of the following benefits.

  • Generates a glowing look; creates brighter more alert eyes
  • Tones & firms facial muscles; tightens facial contours & increases elasticity
  • Lessens wrinkles & habitual expression lines
  • Releases tension in surrounding muscles
  • Reduces dark circles & puffiness under the eyes
  • Improves skin tone; softens the skin; refines pores
  • Enhances supply of nutrients to skin cells
  • Promotes better blood & lymphatic circulation; increases elimination of toxins
  • Promotes a relaxed, more mobile and youthful appearance
  • Relieves stress-related symptoms such as headaches, eyestrain and insomnia
  • Encourages innate beauty, confidence and radiance
  • Balances the body’s subtle energy

The benefits of Facial Rejuvenation are cumulative. A course of six treatments, ideally once a week, allows for optimum improvements, to undo habitual facial expressions and to retrain the facial muscles. To maintain the benefits it is advisable to continue with treatments once a month.

Facial Rejuvenation can also be enjoyed as a one-off treatment for relaxation.
