Allison Roberts, MAR, PRM
I am a fully qualified level 5 reflexologist and offer treatments on feet, hands and ears (auricular) and can combine all three into a treatment.
I am mobile so can visit you at your home or you may wish to be treated in a private room within my home.
I have had additional training in:
- Reflexology to Enhance Fertility and Maternity Care and
- Reflexology for Cancer and Palliative Care*
A typical foot treatment lasts around an hour (more on a first treatment as a general chat about your health and a general medical questionnaire is required). The client is reclined and the treatment starts with a warm up massage before covering all the reflexes and finishes with a deep leg and foot massage.
*I currently volunteer on a weekly basis at my local cancer support centre offering reflexology treatments to anyone that is or has been affected by cancer.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Level 5 Centralia Mastership in Reflexology and trained with Allison Walker at the Contemporary Reflexology College (Sep 2014 - July 2015).
As part of our training we had to do 100 treatments, most of which were part of case studies.
We were trained to tailor our treatments to suit the client's current health and well-being and received specific training on enhancing fertility and maternity care as well as adapting reflexology for treating cancer patients and palliative care
I have also had a brief introduction to meridian reflexology.
I have Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology at Level 4.
I am a member of both the Association of Reflexologists and Professional Reflexology as well as being registered with the CNHC.
I am also fully insured.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Association of Reflexologists
The Association of Reflexologists (AoR) is a non-profit making association which aims to provide support to professionally qualified practitioners.
Membership is open to practitioners who have gained an approved qualification or who have provided proof that their training and practical skills meet the standards set by the AoR.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
CNHC is the UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners. Its key function is to enhance public protection by setting standards for registration with CNHC.
Members must abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics and hold current professional indemnity insurance.
Professional Reflexology firmly believes that reflexology is the most powerful of complementary therapies and that the benefits of therapy should be shown to as wide an audience as possible. They also believe that reflexology practitioners should have the backing and support that they deserve in what can be a solitary occupation.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
