Katie Roberts Reflexology

My name is Katie and I’m a reflexologist. My love for complimentary therapies started when my eldest child suffered with very bad eczema. I needed something that helped both the condition and the side affects and reflexology had all the answers for me. From there I went on and trained and qualified with a practitioners diploma in reflexology . Now I am delighted to be able to help others with all my skills and knowledge that I have learned along my journey.

Reflexology is a hands-on treatment that leaves clients feeling relaxed and renewed. I love showing my clients how just a few treatments can make an enormous difference to their health. It takes into account the whole person and helps activate each person’s natural healing processes as well as restoring their physical and emotional well-being.

Reflexology is proven to help with pain relief, circulation, lymphatic drainage, energy boosting, reducing stress levels, improving your immune system reducing anxiety and many more.

  • • Indian head massage is a relaxing holistic treatment that uses acupressure massage to release stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.
  • • Ear candling can rebalance auricular pressure,and improve tinnitus. It is very calming and relaxing in cases of anxiety and is an amazing treatment to help de-stress. This treatment also includes a marma point facial massage or a lymphatic drainage facial massage.
  • • I also offer Baby and Child reflexology either on a one to one basis or in a class setting. This is fantastic for helping with teething, sleep pattern,colic, reflux, constipation and anxiety in children. It’s a fantastic opportunity for extra bonding with baby for mom or dad!..

Holistic therapies consider your physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing.A Holistic approach focuses on a person’s welness and not just their illness or condition.

If there’s any issue that concerns you and you aren’t sure if any of these therapies can help you just give me a call and we can have a chat about it.
