ALL ABOUT ME
I’m Sheila and I’ve been practising as a fully qualified Reflexologist for 22 years. I live in the lovely seaside town of Ilfracombe, North Devon. Where I currently have a comfortable, private treatment room at my home.
I gained an IIHHT diploma in Holistic Therapies in 1998. It was an amazing, intense, year long, full time course Including Aromatherapy, Aromatherapy Massage, Reflexology, Swedish Massage, Indian Head Massage, Anatomy and Physiology, Counselling, Diet and Nutrition and First Aid.
I enjoyed every part of the course, but it has always been Reflexology that has always interested me the most.
Reflexology is a non invasive, complementary treatment that aims to optimise mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. I specialise in building strong and trusting relationships with my clients, each treatment is personal and tends to their individual needs.
As a qualified Aromatherapist. I make personalised, essential oil blends to order. More information in Price List.
WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?
The theory behind reflexology is that our body’s structure and organs are mapped in smaller areas; such as your feet, hands and ears. I practice in foot reflexology. Reflexology is a unique system of foot massage using techniques such as thumb walking and hooking. By locating and massaging the precise reflex points on the feet which correspond to the different parts of the body, treating all the individual pieces of a person as a whole, mentally, emotionally and physically. The bodies natural healing abilities may be stimulated to help restore balance. And therefore aiding the body to work as well as it possibly can.
Reflexology works on a very individual basis, and I aim to work with you, and your body to achieve this. On your first treatment we will go through a consultation where we can speak about your needs and requirements.
A course of 6 treatments is recommended at first. After this one treatment every 4-6 weeks so we can really work on restoring balance within your body.
Who can benefit from Reflexology?
Everyone can benefit from all ages. Treatments will need to be adapted for children and elderly; For example having shorter treatments and to take care over some ailments. The elderly will find that stiff joints and circulatory problems, in particular, will benefit from reflexology sessions, while babies and children are the most receptive as their bodies are easily relaxed to therapeutic stimuli and results are good.
Reflexology can help many common ailments; PMS, fertility problems, pregnancy, menopause balancing hormones, digestive problems, headaches, anxiety, stress.

This policy outlines some of the key measures I have taken to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus (COVID-19). Please note the content may be subject to change.
Adhering to guidelines
Throughout the pandemic, I will be following guidelines issued by the government, NHS, other relevant authorities and my professional association, the Federation of Holistic Therapists, regarding safe and hygienic practice and the use of any personal protective equipment (PPE).
COVID-19 Risk Assessment
I have carried out a full risk assessment, in line with guidance from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), in order to:
identify what work activity or situations might cause transmission of the virus; think about who could be at risk; decide how likely it is that someone could be exposed; and to act to remove the activity or situation, or if this isn’t possible, control the risk. Health screening
Prior to seeing any of my clients, I will be:
monitoring my own health and deferring treatments if I have COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19. contacting my clients 24 hours in advance and deferring any treatments if: they have COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19; are clinically extremely vulnerable and shielding; anyone in their household has COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19; they have been in close contact with someone who has symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 14 days; they have been contacted by the NHS Test and Trace Service and told to self isolate. asking my clients to call and cancel and defer treatment on the morning of their appointment if they have a temperature or other symptoms of COVID-19. Enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures
I have introduced enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures between clients, which includes washing and disinfecting any non-porous surfaces and therapy equipment, such as chairs and couches, and replacing any porous or single-use items, such as towels and couch roll. Strict personal hygiene measures will also be adhered to, including regular handwashing/ sanitising.
Adapting or restricting treatments
It may be necessary for me to adapt or restrict certain treatments, in order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 and/or protect my clients’ health and safety. Any clients likely to be impacted will be advised as soon as possible.
Maintaining social distancing
Please note that while many treatments involve close contact, I will be observing social distancing measures wherever possible. This might include, for example, maintaining an appropriate distance during the consultation process, and when arriving and leaving for an appointment.
If a treatment is cancelled or deferred at short notice because my client has COVID-19 or has symptoms of COVID-19, any standard cancellation fees will be waivered. The client will be asked to kindly confirm in writing that their appointment has been cancelled or deferred because they have COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19.
