Where are your treatment rooms?
I work at The Garden Room at my home in Hutton, Brentwood CM13, licensed by Essex Trading Standards, and at The Nesting Place in Chelmsford.
Do you do home visits?
Yes, I am based in Hutton, and will come to your home in Brentwood, Billericay, Ongar, and surrounding areas. If you are outside these areas, please contact me as I may be able to come to you but there may be an additional charge.
How long is a treatment?
Generally a treatment, including consultation and aftercare advice, will take: –
|Indian Head Massage||45 minutes|
|Hopi Ear Candling||45 minutes|
For your first treatment I would suggest you allow an additional 20 minutes for the initial consultation and any questions you may have regarding the treatment.
I am not sure I would like reflexology, do you do taster sessions?
Yes. I offer short (20 minute) taster sessions at either my treatment room in Hutton, Brentwood, or at The Nesting Place in Chelmsford. These cost £10.
How many treatments should I have?
The number of treatments varies from person to person and the reason you are having a treatment. I will discuss a treatment programme according to your specific needs.
I am undergoing medical treatment, can I still have a treatment with you?
All the treatments I offer are suitable alongside conventional medicine. Prior to a treatment I will require you to complete a consultation form detailing your medical history, current health and lifestyle. The treatment will be adapted according to your specific needs.
In some instances, I may require you to consult with your medical practitioner prior to treatment.
If you have any concerns / questions, please discuss with me prior to making an appointment.
Are your treatments suitable for children?
Yes. All the treatments can be beneficial to children and are adapted accordingly, usually making the treatment shorter. For children aged 16 and under a consent form will be required, to be completed by the parent or guardian, who will remain present during the treatment.
I also run workshops for Baby and Toddler Reflex, Children’s Reflexology Programme and Story Massage that you may be interested in.
I am trying to get pregnant / I am pregnant, can I have a treatment?
All my treatments, other than Hot Stone Reflexology, are suitable during pregnancy. When trying to conceive and when pregnant these treatments may help you relax and may alleviate stress and tension. I am trained and experienced in Fertility and Maternity Reflexology and will adapt the treatment according to your needs. For example, a maternity reflexology treatment from 37 weeks onwards works on different reflex and acupressure points in preparation for labour.
For further information on reflexology for conception or during pregnancy contact me.
I am having a treatment at home, do I need to provide anything?
No. I bring along a chair, music and everything I need to make your treatment as relaxing as possible. You just need to provide a calming, uninterrupted environment to get the best from your treatment.
What should I wear for a treatment?
Something comfortable. For all my treatments you remain fully clothed, just removing footwear for reflexology.
Do you use creams or oils?
I generally use some wax or creams for reflexology and Neals Yard Remedies oils for Facial Reflexology, Indian Head Massage and Hopi Ear Candling. All the products I use are natural and organic. I will check prior to any treatment for any allergies you may have.
How do I pay for my treatment?
Payment can be made by cheque, cash or card.
I need to cancel / rearrange my appointment, what should I do.
Please contact me by phone or text if you need to change your appointment. If your appointment is at The Nesting Place, if you cancel or rearrange your appointment with less than 48 hours notice, you will be charged for the room rental if I am unable to allocate the appointment to another client and may be charged for my fee. All other bookings, please give at least 48 hours notice of change or cancellation or there may be a charge to cover my costs.
I am not in Brentwood, Billericay, Chelmsford etc – can I still have a treatment at home?
Please contact me with your post code and I will see if I am able to offer you an appointment at home. There may be an additional charge according to the distance I would need to travel.
Can I buy a gift voucher?
Yes. Please advise me of the recipients post code to ensure they are in an area I cover. Vouchers are valid for 6 months and are non-transferable.
I am interested in your workshops, when/where are these held?
I can run a workshop on a one-to-one basis or for small groups. If you have a group of friends who are interested, these can be held at your home which will reduce the cost of the course.
Contact me if you are interested in a specific course for more information.
Do you do pamper parties or group bookings?
Yes. I occasionally do taster treatments at pamper events – these will be advertised on my Facebook page.
If you have a group of friends who would like an evening of taster treatments, contact me and I can tailor a package according to your needs.
