Reflexology / Indian Head Massage / Thermal Auricular Therapy


Reflexology is an holistic therapy, so the whole person is treated, not just the presenting symptoms. Gentle pressure is applied to specific points on the feet or hands, these points correspond to various areas on the body, also the systems and organs within it. This may stimulate unbalanced systems to return to a natural equilibrium. Regular treatments may help to maintain a sense of general well-being. Reflexology treatments are non invasive, safe and natural.

Reflexology may help the following;

Joint pain::Breathing disorders::Digestive problems::Hormonal imbalances::Fertility issues::Skin problems::Sleep disorders::Stress and anxiety::Muscular and joint pain.

A Reflexologist does not claim to cure and will not prescribe or diagnose. Many doctors, consultants and other health care practitioners now recognise reflexology as a well established, respected and effective complementary therapy.

Working for companies of all sizes, I know the importance of wellbeing within the workplace. These days, the modern way is to rush and bustle without a moment’s reflection on how our bodies are coping. Not until the mechanical parts break down do we stop and wonder what happened to our physical and mental wellbeing.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a traditional technique of manipulating soft tissue in the shoulders and scalp. A range of pressures and rhythms are used to stimulate the neck and head areas. The combination may help muscular tension.

Ear Candling

This ancient therapy has been practised for centuries. Many people find it a very relaxing therapy. Ear candling may help with many ear and nose disorders. It will not, as some people believe, draw out impacted ear wax. What it may do is help soften the wax so that the body, over time, eliminates it naturally For safety reasons only high quality candles with filters are used so nothing can enter the ear.



Herbal Ramblings

Even in the most urban of spaces we have a wealth of plants around us. Look up to some forgotten gutter and you will often see a plant thriving in the most precarious fashion! Cast your eyes around, you will find herbs that will heal you, soothe you, and even stop bleeding.

Cosmetics, shampoos, soaps, salves, tinctures and furniture polish can all be made at home with natural ingredients.

Join me on a journey of discovery. Take a gentle ramble and meet the plants that you can use safely and those which should be avoided. It was on a foray into the hedgerows for ingredients for a country wine that I found one of my terriers picking and eating blackberries with great dexterity! Even Daisy, my terrier, knew that they were good for her! Discover the hidden benefits of the humble nettle. Learn how to make salves and tinctures. Many of you will never again despair over your ‘weedy lawn’ or see it as just grass!

The workshops and retreats both here and in SW France are informal and informative and I am told, very enjoyable.

“Anona’s knowledge of nature’s plants and their healing properties is astonishing. I learned so much. I hope to repeat her wonderful workshop soon.”
