Natural health and well-being for you & your family in the heart of Suffolk, close to Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket
More of us than ever are choosing to take a more integrated, natural and holistic approach to our health and well-being, and my passion is enabling my clients to do this through the use of Bowen and Reflexology. Both very gentle, these treatments are suitable for anyone of any age, from babies through to the elderly.
In the next few months I will also be offering Reiki, McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release, and Fascial Release.
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 or situations that they want support with, such as musculoskeletal aches and pains, emotional and organic issues (respiratory, digestive, hormonal etc), and problems involving the reproductive system. A list of the conditions and situations that my clients have sought help with can be found here.
All of my treatments take place either in my treatment room based in the beautiful village of Woolpit, situated between Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket, or from The Therapy Rooms at Neal’s Yard Remedies on Abbeygate Street in the heart of historical Bury St Edmunds.

Fertility & Pregnancy
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.
Born and raised just outside Bury St Edmunds, I have Suffolk ingrained in my blood with a family history that I can date back a few hundred years. Perhaps that's why, after traipsing far and wide across the globe, I finally felt the lure of home, and returned here to raise my kids. I love Suffolk and the lifestyle and opportunities that it offers, and because there is a growing acceptance of complementary therapies and the need for us to lead more sustainable and complementary lifestyles.
I am a member of the College of Bowen Studies, and the Federation of Holistic Therapists, and I am registered with the CNHC, the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, for my work as a Bowen Therapist and Reflexologist. The CNHC is the UK register for complementary healthcare practitioners that was set up in 2008 with government funding and support. I also host a Facebook Group for complementary therapists in East Anglia called East Anglia Complementary.
As well as Bowen and Reflexology I am also a practitioner and instructor in Reflexology for Babies and Children, and am trained in Relaxation techniques, Fertility Support through Reflexology and Ayurvedic Foot Massage.
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:
Life and the importance of creating your own rhythms
Where would we be without rhythm? I’m not just talking about rhythm in terms of a good tune, but about the way that rhythm is interwoven in to and throughout every element of our lives.
Rhythm is part of our natural environment on a huge scale - the sun, the moon and the stars all wax, wane, shine and twinkle in a rhythm, there is the continual ebb and flow of water, the changing rhythm of the seasons, the cycles of sowing and reaping. There is a rhythm to our body, the pumping of the heart, the circadian, infradian and ultradian rhythms, the act of breathing in and out. All of these form part of our natural state of being and are crucial to our existence, but there are also the rhythms that we create for ourselves, the rhythms of our everyday lives, our journeys to and from work, break patterns, buying food, cooking food, when we clean the house, when we do the laundry, when we sit down for 5 minutes for a cup of tea before the kids come rolling in from school. This week it suddenly dawned on me that these created rhythms are just as important as our natural ones.
For some time now I’ve felt slightly odd, slightly adrift, and I haven’t been able to put my finger on why; I’m in a job that I love with a business that is growing and I finally feel financially stable, why should I be feeling like this? But then I realised that the last four years Click here to read more
