(First session £45 inc consultation)
I have worked as a Reflexologist for 10 years and am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists.
Over the years, I have worked with clients with a whole host of different issues from Chronic Fatigue to Plantar Fasciitis. Reflexology is a massage/pressure treatment, applied by the thumb and forefinger to the feet or hands. It is based on the concept of energy travelling down zones in the body. Reflex areas in the hands and feet correspond to organs, structures and parts of the body. The feet are like a map of the body– by massaging these, the whole body is being treated, releasing tension and improving circulation.
The treatment aims to enhance the flow of energy, encouraging the body to heal itself . It can provide some relief from headaches, migraines, neck and back pain, digestive disorders, menstrual problems and help with infertility.
I am fully qualified and experienced in Maternity Reflexology and Reflexology for Fertility Problems. Simply the act of just relaxing more can enhance your chances of becoming pregnant! I work alongside clients who are having IVF or other fertility treatment- the two often go hand in hand. I have successfully used Reflexology to help with breech and overdue babies as well as helping with all aspects of pregnancy.

How stress affects fertility:
According to the AOR, “Research has shown that stress can affect fertility. Cortisol (a hormone released in response to stress) can cause the release of an inhibiting hormone that reduces the production of follicle stimulating hormone and luteinising hormone. Both of these are necessary to the release of the egg and implantation of the embryo after fertilisation.” So, too much stress can reduce the chances of achieving a successful pregnancy.
How Reflexology can help.
Reflexology is a non-intrusive therapy, based on the theory that different points of the feet, lower leg and hands correspond with specific areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside standard healthcare to promote better health.
Reflexology can help provide you with relaxation and significantly reduce stress levels. Reflexology enables you to relax and make time for yourself, allowing your body to naturally prepare itself properly for conception.
Reflexology also helps if you are having medical assistance with your fertility journey. It can provide support with the physical impact and emotion that the cycles of drug treatment may have. Experiencing conventional fertility treatments can be often stressful and you and your partner may feel the pressure. Reflexology will support, relax and keep you balanced while you are undergoing fertility drug treatments.
Please always check with the Fertility Clinic / Consultant that they are happy for you to have reflexology during these treatments.
I am a fully qualified Reflexologist (Level 3 Diploma and MAR status). I obtained a qualification in Fertility and Maternity Reflexology in 2005 at the Central London College of Reflexology. I also completed another course in Fertility and Pregnancy Reflexology in March 2015 with David Wayte at Jubilee College.
More recently I completed Parts 1&2 of Barbara Scott’s Reproflexology Training with Seren Natural Fertility. This course incorporates the causes of fertility, identifying and tracking ovulation, working with sub fertility as well as working with medicated cycles, IUI and IVF.
I have been working successfully helping ladies through their conception journey since 2006.

According to the Association of Reflexologists, “ There is evidence from women who feel they have benefitted from Reflexology throughout their pregnancy. Studies have shown that Reflexology in pregnancy significantly reduces pain in labour, reduces the length of 1st stage labour and improves the quality of sleep in post-natal women.”
Reflexology in pregnancy is perfectly safe during the whole of your pregnancy. As long as the Reflexologist is suitably qualified and experienced.

How can Reflexology help?
Throughout your pregnancy, Reflexology aims to aid relaxation, de-stress and offer support. It can help to significantly reduce pregnancy aches and pains such as heartburn, backache, nausea or vomiting, changes in bowel habits, insomnia, muscular pain and anxiety. As your due date approaches, visits for Reflexology can help to prepare you mental and physically for a wonderful, relaxed birth. It can significantly reduce stress levels and promote relaxation at a time when anxiety levels can often be high.
Always inform your health care provider that you are receiving Reflexology treatments during Pregnancy. Reflexology is a safe, non-invasive treatment, but in the event of your pregnancy becoming high risk (with pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes etc) your health care provider must be informed.
“I’ve been having regular Reflexology treatments with Jayne over the last 7 years. When I first started, I had trouble breathing due to diagnosed chest problems. I couldn’t breathe through my nose, wheezed and coughed a lot when I lay down. Jayne recommended a course of treatments to try and help and after 6 months, my symptoms lessened considerably. I am now on a “maintenance” programme and haven’t seen my G.P about my chest for well over five years. This is great considering I was going a lot. Jayne is very helpful, knowledgeable and always looks after me.”

“Jayne has been so helpful this last year and a half with reflexology. It has helped me to relax and become like a new person. She highlighted problems with my general and mental health when I first started going and now they are all sorted! Even better, her expertise in fertility reflexology has successfully helped me to get pregnant! She is now seeing me through my pregnancy and I wouldn’t want anyone else to help me with this experience. She is very approachable and friendly and I look forward to going, even if it is just to see Jayne!! Thank you for all your help.”
– Zoe Summerill, Doncaster
“However anxious, stressed or full of tension I may feel at the start of any session, Jayne’s expert knowledge, combined with an intuitive helping nature, ensures that I always leave in a positive and calm manner which I hope will enable me to reach my goals. Jayne’s extensive knowledge of Hypnotherapy extends to pain management and she taught me some amazing relaxation techniques in preparation for my IVF egg collection. I had heard that it could be a painful and distressing process and I did have some concerns. However, with Jayne’s expert guidance, I was able to have a relatively pain free experience. I would whole heartedly recommend Jayne to anyone who may need support in this area. Her help generally has been invaluable and I would recommend her to anyone.”

“I first consulted Jayne for help with anxiety, but soon found that my IBS had also improved. Jayne is professional, approachable, calm and reassuring. Reflexology can treat a surprising array of problems – I would definitely recommend consulting Jayne.”
– Carol, Auckley, Doncaster
“I have suffered with M.E / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 6 years now and got recommended to try Reflexology as a way to ease my symptoms. I have been receiving treatments with Jayne for several months and I have improved a great deal. I used to be bed bound, sleeping for up to 20 hours a day and struggling to find the energy to even get up and eat. After only a couple of treatments I was already starting to feel the benefits of Reflexology, I had more energy, less of my M.E symptoms and began to feel better within myself. Every week I was starting to feel better and now I am even doing light exercise at the gym 5 days a week! Reflexology has been an enormous help to me and I can finally see light at the end of the tunnel!”
