Awakening the body’s healing potential
through stimulation of reflex points

Reflexology is a powerful holistic therapy that uses massage on the reflex points on the hands, feet, ears or face to encourage the body’s natural healing process to restore its own natural balance.It is suitable for anyone at any age from newborn babies to patients on end of life care. The theory is that reflex points on the feet, hands and face correspond to organs, structures and areas within the body.

What happens when I go for Reflexology ?

After taking your medical history to ensure it is safe for you to have reflexology, I’ll be using Chinese pulse and tongue diagnoses to assess your system’s strengths and weaknesses. During the treatment, I will use my hands to apply pressure to the reflexes zones on your feet and lower legs, sometimes hands or face, depending on your needs and preferences. You may feel areas of brief discomfort when certain reflex zones are being treated. However, the experience is deeply relaxing. Reflexology allows you time to centre yourself and you will leave, feeling calm yet energised.

A treatment lasts for about one hour. Depending on your needs and requests, ear acupuncture or a short massage can be integrated to focus on your specific areas of discomfort. Postural and lifestyle advice as well as basic yoga stretches may also be included. The treatment can be extended to include other modalities such as Indian Head Massage or Ear candling for instance in acute situations when you need to address specific areas or conditions such as upper body tension, blocked ears or sinuses.

Increase circulation
Reflexology may help to:
  • Increase circulation
  • Provide a sense of wellbeing and relaxation
  • Improve stress-related conditions

Reflexology does not claim to cure or diagnose and should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice.It is a complementary therapy which promotes healing to the whole person. It is one of the ways to lessen the stresses of modern life. After the treatment, you may sleep better and may notice a feeling of improved mood and general wellbeing. A course of treatment may be recommended depending on your body’s needs.

Why would you come for reflexology ?

You may come along with a specific ailment or condition that you want help with, in a natural and holistic way, as an adjunct to your regular medical treatment. You may be just feeling under the weather or stressed with all that life throws at you and want to take some time out. You can relax and spend an hour having a fabulously relaxing foot massage. Regular sessions can help you to keep well and support you through challenges. Taking care of your own health needs is becoming more important. Having an hour which is totally for you, where you can talk, relax and reflect is rare and special. It may be just the tonic you need to keep you balance and feeling good.


Since I qualified as a reflexologist in 1991, I have done several postgraduate trainings and developed specialisms and expertise in different areas. I specialise in reflexology for women. I have also trained in hand reflexology, spinal reflexology and facial reflexology.

Types of reflexology to suit you

Hand reflexology can be used if you are particularly ticklish or shy about your feet. It can also be used in cases of contra-indications because of serious foot conditions. The principles are the same as in foot reflexology.

Spinal Reflexology
Spinal Reflexology consists of a series of specific safe techniques to access spine related conditions through the reflexes of spinal nerve roots and neural pathways in the feet. This can also be done on the hands in the case of contra-indications for foot reflexology.

These techniques can help reduce tension, pain, swelling and inflammation, Compression of the spine due to disc issues, poor posture or back injuries can trigger difficulties or dysfunctions in the internal organs they connect with. Problem areas in the body can be identified by working the associated spinal nerve roots Referral pains.

Facial Reflexology is a holistic facial treatment which promotes a deeply relaxing and therapeutic experience.It is a non-invasive treatment which promotes wellbeing to your face and to the rest of your body. Topical application of organic Neal’s Yard massage oil (grapeseed, almond or rose or frankincense facial oil) are combined with massage. It is a fusion of reflexology and massage techniques to relax the
muscles tissues of the face. It has an overall stimulation on the vascular, lymphatic and parasympathetic nervous systems Facial Reflexology works on a similar principle as foot reflexology and aims to release energy to the body to restore balance and help prevent disease. It has been used to treat a wide range of conditions but many people just enjoy it because it is very relaxing and helps eliminate stored up tension and stress.
Facial Reflexology
On an aesthetic level, because the massage stimulates the facial nerves, muscles and circulation, it has a regenerative effect upon the skin. It helps by:

    activating the lymphatic system which helps to get rid of toxins
    encouraging the build up of new skin tissue.
    alleviating the tension held deep within the facial muscles
    improving the elasticity and tone of the skin leaving a healthy glow.

Facial reflexology is a stand alone treatment. It can also be used as an add-on to your reflexology, massage (therapeutic/remedial or sports), ear candle treatment as it would not conflict with any of the treatments I offer.

A little History of Reflexology

The art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China but it wasn’t until 1913 that it was introduced by Dr William Fitzgerald to the West. It was further developed in the 1930’s by Eunice Ingham to become what it is today. She noticed that congestion or tension in any part of the body is mirrored in the zones of the feet that Dr Fitzgerald identified as linked to other areas and organs of the body.


”I have been receiving treatments from Marie-Ange for several years now. I mainly see her for reflexology, but I have also had acupuncture and massage. I always come away from the sessions feeling refreshed. Marie-Ange is able to diagnose any problems I may have and provides me with good advice and remedies to keep me healthy."
