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 (the last 14 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.
Please take a moment to view the Testimonials and Gallery pages on my site.

Every clients well-being is the driving force for what I do, and I do absolutely love what I do. As a small business, as with all businesses, overheads are a factor, and whether a client attends their appointment or not, there are still running costs incurred. With this in mind I would like to respectfully draw your attention to, and Thank You for your time in reading, the following information;
Appointments are booked for you at a time that is mutually agreed. If you are unable to attend an appointment or need to cancel or reschedule at least 24 hours notice is required to avoid 100% of scheduled therapy costs being incurred. By booking an appointment, you agree to this cancellation policy.
Cancellation fees can be paid via PayPal to: email@example.com or via direct bank transfer [bank details will be provided upon request], please use your name as a payment reference. Upon receipt of payment you will be issued with a an electronic receipt for your records. Once cancellation fees have been received, a future appointment can be confirmed.
The more notice I am given affords me the opportunity to offer the appointment to someone else.
Following a cancellation, I reserve the right to:
- not offer appointments following cancellations and non-payment of cancellation fees where applicable, and
- 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.
As with all businesses, overheads are a factor, and whether a client attends their appointment or not I still have costs to cover such as insurance, professional membership fees, heating, electricity, laundry, products, to name but a few, as well as my own personal financial commitments that come with everyday family life.
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.
July 2020: This Section Will Be Updated before reopening and resuming appointments.
I would respectfully ask that all clients are at least 48 hours clear of any fevers, viruses and symptoms such as sickness and diarrhoea before attending appointments. 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. 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 your for your understanding.
