Emma has been working as a Reflexologist for over ten years in the South West London area. She trained with the Association of Reflexologists and has experience with many clients, with varying conditions. She has regular treatments and frequently does new courses to keep up-to-date with what’s new in reflexology, and to ensure that her continuing professional development is refreshed. She works intuitively, using different methods learnt over the years when treating clients, so each treatment may be slightly different according to your individual needs.

Reflexology is a complementary therapy, which works on the feet to aid healing to the whole person not just the prevailing symptoms.

This in turn may improve blood circulation, lymph drainage, assist in the elimination of toxins, and strengthening of the immune system. It is a non-invasive, natural, gentle treatment which may enable the body’s natural healing processes to promote the body’s natural equilibrium.
