Before I started receiving treatments in reflexology I was incredibly lethargic throughout the day, getting to bed at 5/6am and surfacing late afternoon having slept for many hours and yet having little energy to power me through the rest of the day. At the peak of my depression I experienced severe mood swings and the inability to control my anger and frustration with those around me; in all honesty, I was never sure if anything was ever going to get better - I was giving up and hopelessly felt my life coming to an end. However, now having been receiving treatments every week for the past 3-4 months I can undoubtably and with happiness in my life once more say I'm a changed man.
I could never begin to imagine that in such a short period of time - an hour a day, one day every week for a few months, that I could have changed so much for the better; in my opinion, this is something no anti-depressant can give you. I've been given a second chance, and I'm incredibly thankful for the help I've received. At first it was slow, still tired here and there every other day, but now I'm bursting with energy and making the most out of every day as if each were my last. I am forever grateful for what I've been given, and without a doubt recommend this to anybody suffering with mental health issues. It has been an extraordinary journey. Thank you every so much.

Paula has been my reflexologist of choice since 2013 and I continue to see her at least twice a month. I was new to reflexology we first met and Paula explained to me in language I understood, exactly what it is, how it works and why it is so effective. And since then I have become a great advocate of the technique, suggesting to anyone who will listen why they should try it.
I started reflexology back in 2013 following trauma suffered to my feet during a hillwalking trip. My initial reason for trying the technique was aimed at reintroducing some feeling to my toes. This was quickly achieved but the additional physical and emotional benefits soon became clear. My lifestyle often results in physical, mental and emotional issues which I find are helped enormously by reflexology. I am never ceased to be amazed at the connectivity of nerves in my feet to the rest of my body. Whilst I don’t pretend to understand the intricacies, I certainly feel the benefit.
Paula has recently started delivering limbic reflexology which has only accelerated the benefit of my visits to Paula. After only two or three limbic sessions, the residual issues I was still having with my toes have receded further. I have also had a surge of physical and mental energy both of which are most welcome. Paula is both passionate and knowledgeable about most aspects of holistic healing and is a great source of “joined up” advice.
I would suggest to anyone considering reflexology to give it a go for at least three or four sessions as I feel the benefits are cumulative. And the benefits of such techniques often depend on the person delivering them. In this respect I could not recommend Paula highly enough and frankly you should expose your feet to her as soon as you can!
Paula is a great therapist, very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional.
I came to Paula for reflexology initially, which helped me with my headaches, and went on to have regular massages for back and shoulder pain, and have felt so much better with the massage and exercises she has given me. Following shoulder surgery she was instrumental in speeding up the recovery process.
I have been to many therapists and have found her to be one of the best. I have noticed huge benefits in my range of motion and pain reduction. I would highly recommend her.
