Holistic Healing &
Holistic Healing aims to treat you as a whole person and not a collection of symptoms.

I allow 90mins for an initial consultation. I take a full medical history and I look at your emotional health for at least the last 10 years because I firmly believe in Dr. Bach’s Philosophy that emotional disharmony is the fore-runner of physical disease. You will be given as much time as you might need to ask any questions about your care.
Your Treatment Plan
We will plan this together at the end of your initial consultation. I will discuss with you how to proceed with your ongoing treatments, taking into account your personal preferences as well as your personality. This is normally a combination of Reflexology, Dr. Bach Flower Remedies, Aura Soma Colour Healing and Reiki. I find that combining these treatments is usually more powerful than using them individually.
The length of the initial course is often one treatment per week for 3 to 6 weeks. The timing of treatments will then reduce until a top up treatment is required once every 4 weeks to 3 months depending on why you started your treatments. Two of my clients have been having treatments every 6 months for over 20 years and tell me that it keeps them in “tip top form”. Many come every 2 or 3 months for relaxation.
Treatment for Infertility
We will tailor your treatment plan around your menstrual cycle.
Treatments for Pregnant Women
I usually treat you monthly until you are 8 months and then weekly until you give birth.
Preparing for Birth and the Birth Plan
I will give you help with both of these. We will spend time together discussing your likes, dislikes, hopes and fears. I will teach you and your birth partner useful labour exercises and give you a sheet of helpful hints. I will also seek advice from our herbalist for any herbs you need, for example Raspberry Leaf Tea to tone your uterus.
Dr Bach Flower Remedies for Labour
I will mix for you a pre labour treatment bottle of Dr. Bach Flower Remedies as well as giving you a different complementary mix of Dr. Bach Flower Remedies to start to take as labour begins. Also see more details below.
Reflexology is an ancient method of foot massage which is believed to trigger one’s own self-healing. Men, women and children all enjoy the treatment. In addition to promoting a feeling of relaxation and peacefulness, Reflexology may be helpful in the treatment of many symptoms including
Stress, Anxiety, Insomnia, IBS, Headaches, Digestive Problems, Back Ache, Tiredness, Irritability, Lethargy, Painful Muscles, Infertility, Menstrual or Menopausal Problems
Dr Bach Flower Remedies
Flower remedies are for emotional healing. The drops of flower essences are taken orally. They gently but powerfully help to remove negative feelings, restoring positive emotional wellbeing. They are especially powerful when combined with Reflexology. There are 38 remedies, covering all our emotions. I will mix several of the remedies together to make a personalised treatment bottle for you. You take this mix at least 4 times per day for 3 weeks.
Aura Soma Colour Beamer
At the end of your Reflexology treatment I will use a little torch to beam the colour of your choice into your feet. The Aura Soma Colour Healing system believes that when our Aura lacks colour our energy field becomes unbalanced.
This universal flow of healing energy is extremely gentle yet powerful. Like Reflexology it is believed to aid the body’s own self healing. I often send absent healing Reiki when required, particularly to labouring women or to clients who are in hospital. My own family who live in Australia and New Zealand regularly request it, having seen the benefits over the years.
Whichever plan we follow, at the end of your treatment you should experience a feeling of great peace and relaxation but at the same time feel revitalised. Providing you drink plenty of water for 48 hours after your treatment you should not experience any unusual side effects. Occasionally a healing crisis may occur in which case your symptoms may be worse for a day or two, but this would all be explained at the time of your treatment.
Treatment times are Tuesdays 9.30 – 6pm and Wednesdays 9.30 - 1 pm.
