WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I love going to see Laura for reflexology. I feel great when I come out and always book at least 3 in advance to make sure I don’t have to wait too long in between. Laura’s treatments have made a huge positive impact to my quality of life and wellbeing.
Therapies, Prices & Opening Times
Hi, I'm Laura. Welcome to my website. I thought you might like to know a bit about me and how I came to be a complementary therapist.
Originally from West London, I moved to Cliffe Woods, Rochester in 1996. Whilst commuting to London every day to my PA job, I often found myself wondering if all there was to life was the same old pattern of eat, sleep, work, repeat! I knew that there had to be more to it than that.
In 2000 I had a ‘chance meeting’ that introduced me to healing work. I now know there was no 'by chance' about it - it was obviously meant to be! I started to develop my skills, a process that was put on hold while I took some time out after having my son, but I always longed to return to healing work – I knew it was where I wanted to be. Being introduced to Reiki re-ignited my desire to actually do something about my passion; it was time to take the plunge and become a practitioner. With healing work being my driving force, and with wonderful support from my husband, son, family and friends, I decided to retrain and take a completely different career path.
Overall, I want to encourage my clients to realise that we need time to relax and recharge our own minds, bodies and souls. If you think about it, you probably recharge your electronic devices more than you recharge yourself! You do...don't you!
Having worked as an administrator and Personal Assistant for 30 years, in both the private & public sectors (15 years of which were in the Education sector), I have seen the ever- increasing demands from the workplace. These are getting worse in our digital age, where we no longer switch off once we leave our place of work, carrying our anxiety and stress (and the detrimental effect these can have on our health) with us 24 hours a day. I can help you to reduce these problems through complementary therapies which include Reiki, Reflexology, Facial Reflexology etc, all of which aim to help you gain relaxation, easing tension and stress, and gaining a greatly improved sense of well-being. My goal is to help you to feel like a human being again....and not like a robot stuck in the cycle of 'eat, sleep, work, repeat.'
Try it for yourself and see. I would love to meet you.

Reiki Healing works with Universal life energies. This therapy was developed in Japan by Mikao Usui in the early 1900's. This therapy aims to rebalance the mind, body and spirit and achieve deep relaxation and improved general sense of well-being using. There is no massage involved with Reiki, and therefore, no contraindications. I place my hands on your head, shoulders, hips and feet and hold my hands above the chakra energy points along the body. You will only be required to remove your shoes for this therapy.
This therapy will last approximately 30-45 mins, depending on each client.
Reflexology has been around for centuries. Used by the Chinese more than 5,000 years ago and the ancient Egyptians. Reflexology works on the principle that our feet, hands and face have many reflex points that correspond with the rest of our body. By stimulating these reflex points we are working with the rest of the body increasing the body's natural energy flow and restoring balance. Reflexology is helpful for many conditions including sleep, anxiety and stress disorders.
Pre-Conceptual, Pregnancy & Post-Natal Reflexology
Using techniques taught by Louise Keet, Principal of The London School Of Reflexology, award winner and author of 'The Reflexology Bible' and 'A Guide To A Successful Pregnancy'. These treatments aim to restore the body's natural balance and energy flow to support preconception including assistance in the stimulation of ovulation, pregnancy associated conditions, assistance in later pregnancy for a natural labour, and post natal support for new mothers.
By working the spinal reflexes on the feet, a Spinal Reflexology treatment can assist in relieving the pressure on the spinal nerve roots, usually caused by compression of the spine, which affects the nearby organs and rest of our bodies causing further imbalances. This treatment aims to restore balance to the affected and surrounding areas.
Reflexology for Cancer Care
Being diagnosed with cancer is one of the most stressful times in anyone's life. Reflexology can bring some relief to that stress and is also believed to help alleviate some of the side effects such as nausea and fatigue that the extensive treatment can have. I have been trained in Oncology Reflexology for Cancer Care and if you would be interested in having a reflexology treatment please be assured that I will be lead by the advice and guidance given to you by your medical professionals. Please ask your oncologist, consultant, cancer care nurses if they would be happy for you to receive reflexology and if there are any reflex areas that they think should be avoided.
You will only be required to remove shoes and socks for this therapy, before I apply organic Reflexology Balms to the feet made by Flying Wild.
These therapies will last approximately 45mins.
Bergman Zone Method Qualified Practitioner
Advanced Facial Reflexology [45mins]
Just like on our feet and hands, our faces hold reflex points corresponding with the rest of our bodies. This gorgeous treatment has been devised by Ziggie Bergman, award winning Reflexologist and leader in this field of reflexology. By gently stimulating the reflex areas on the face, this wonderfully relaxing treatment also aims to restore balance throughout the body and with the use of organic oils nourishing your skin and enhancing your radiance further. This is the perfect treatment for those who enjoy facial treatments and those who would rather not have their feet touched.
This therapy will last approximately 45mins.
Facial Reflexology; Reduce Stress for Health & Wellbeing [25 mins]
For the reduction of stress and improved well-being. Using the same principles as the Advanced Facial Reflexology, this is a shorter treatment and is perfect as either a stand alone treatment or in addition to other treatments I offer. Also using organic oils nourishing your skin and further enhancing your radiance.
This therapy will last approximately 25mins.
You will only be required to remove your shoes prior to this therapy. A foaming cleanser is applied to the face, followed by a hot towel, to cleanse the skin before applying organic Facial Reflexology Oils made by Flying Wild.

- request a non-refundable booking fee to secure a future appointment, which will of course be deducted from the cost of the therapy when received.
Prior to each appointment all clients are asked to review a Pre-Appointment COVID19 Questionnaire.
I would respectfully ask that all clients are at least 48 hours clear of any usual fevers, viruses and symptoms such as sickness and diarrhoea before attending appointments (with the exception of Covid related symptoms which will require a much longer period before treatments will be given, please see Covid19 Policy). I completely understand as we all get ill from time to time, so please do let me know if you are unwell and need to reschedule as soon as you can. It is no longer possible for clients to arrive at an appointment stating that they may ‘have a bit of a cold’. I must work to minimise the risk to the health & wellbeing of fellow clients, some of whom have ongoing conditions with low immunity, my own health and that of my family. Thank you for your understanding.
Your commitment to your appointment time is very much appreciated, as is arriving for your appointment on time. It's important that your appointment time is fully utilised for your relaxation and not impacted in anyway due to late arrival. I always allow a little extra time, in addition to the actual therapy time, however, appointments cannot overrun the allocated diary time impacting other clients or my own family commitments.
Thank you for your understanding.

Amazing reflexology session whilst pregnant. The cabin is warm and cosy, the treatment is so relaxing ..... Highly recommend it if you need so ‘me time’.
Thank you Laura for another wonderful Indian Head Massage and Facial Reflexology. Your treatments should be recommended by the NHS because they always improve my wellbeing.
I really can’t recommend Laura enough. Having had reflexology for a few years now I can honestly say it’s done me wonders. From helping with fertility, general stress, anxiety ..... it honestly is priceless. It’s my little hour of heaven every month and I’ve never felt so comfortable.
I have had several Zone Face Lift treatments with Laura. Each time I come away feeling totally relaxed, my skin is glowing and have so much more energy. Would highly recommend.
