Bowen, Reflexology & Reiki: Natural health and well-being for you & your family in Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding areas
More of us than ever are choosing to take a more natural and holistic approach to our health and well-being, and I am passionate about enabling my clients to do this through:
My clients come to me for a variety of reasons; some because they need the time out to relax and recharge, but many because they are facing conditions, symptoms or situations that they want support with, for example:
My Treatment Rooms: Bury St Edmunds and Woolpit
I have two lovely clinics. The first is based in the beautiful village of Woolpit, which is just off the A14 and is within easy reach of Bury St Edmunds, Thetford, Newmarket, Cambridge, Stowmarket, Diss and Ipswich, and the second is based right in the heart of historical Bury St Edmunds, at The Therapy Rooms above Neal’s Yard Remedies on Abbeygate Street.

Fertility & Pregnancy
I am an experienced practitioner, registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), and a member of the College of Bowen Studies (CBS) and the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT).
In addition to Bowen, Reflexology and Reiki, I am also a practitioner and instructor in Reflexology for Babies and Children, and am trained in Ear Candling, Relaxation techniques, and Fertility Support through Reflexology.
With incredibly gentle moves, Bowen Therapy is suitable for anyone of any age. Truly holistic in its approach, it works with the whole body, getting to the root cause of your situation or condition rather than just focusing on the symptoms. The light and gentle moves used kick start the body’s own innate ability to heal itself, and for many of my clients the results have been profound and quick, with most needing no more than 3 treatments to resolve even long standing conditions.
This is the experience of one of my clients who had experienced back pain for years:
And this short video explains why we work on the whole body, rather than just your symptoms or conditions, in order to get the route cause of your problems, ensuring that any change is long-term or permanent:

By stimulating and massaging points on the feet or hands that correspond to points in the body, I work with your own body's ability to restore balance and harmony. For some the benefit of a Reflexology treatment can be as simple as relaxation, for others it can help with stress and anxiety, or specific issues like back pain or migraines. With fertility treatment on the NHS more difficult to obtain, many people are also coming for support on their conception / fertility reflexology.

Your Pregnancy & Fertility Journey: Bowen and Reflexology
You might wish to explore the use of Bowen Therapy or Reflexology as part of fertility journey. Many women also find Bowen and Reflexology helpful during pregnancy and in preparing them for the birth of their baby: Gawri Motha, author of “The Gentle Birth Method” recommends both as great ways to support mum-to-be in relation to back pain, nausea, pubic and pelvic pain, mastitis, and for mothers who are tense or anxious.

Bowen Therapy and Reflexology are suitable for babies and children, not least due to their very gentle nature. I run a Children’s clinic on Tuesday’s at Neal’s Yard in Bury St Edmunds, and the rest of the time from my treatment room in Woolpit, a lovely village half way between Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket.
Appointments for Children aged 0-15 are £10, and £15 for those aged 15-16. Reduced prices are also available for those in Higher Education or on Apprenticeships. For more information please click here.
What's Happening This Week...
Each week I try and bring you a little bit of something interesting - it could be a recipe, it could be some useful research, a poem, or more information about the work that I do, or sometimes it can be something useful for my fellow therapists or small business owners. This week, I’ve been mainly looking at:
How can I stop / reduce my hay fever symptoms naturally?
Hay fever is, excuse my French, a bitch. As one of the most common allergic conditions around, the NHS estimates that more than 10 million of us are affected by Hay fever each year. Symptoms include itchy eyes, nose and/or throat, a runny nose, and sneezing. At best you might be lucky to get away with a bit of an itchy nose, at worst it’s like having a really bad cold, you feel exhausted, you can barely open your eyes, and all you want to crawl into bed, draw the curtains, cover your head and sleep.
With such a plethora of over the counter medications on offer, Hay fever can be a costly business, but cost aside many of us don’t want to spend our summers shoving tablets in our mouths, sprays up our nose, or drops in our eyes. If you want to take a natural approach, The NHS, bless them, recommends wearing wrap around sunglasses, and rubbing a small amount of petroleum jelly around your nostrils, both of which can help the pollen from entering the body. They also suggest avoiding pollen by staying indoors when pollen levels are particularly high, and regular showering throughout the day / changing of clothes. Very useful, but not really very practical for most of us - so what other natural treatments are there?Click here to read more
