Bee’s interest in Reflexology and Aromatherapy massage developed during her nursing career in the NHS, qualifying in 1992 in Reflexology and Aromatherapy. Since then she has set up her own independent practice offering these treatments to her clients.

It is extremely rewarding for her to see the positive therapeutic outcomes that so many of her clients experience.

Jo Harrison

South London / Central London- SW
I have been interested in the journey of pregnant women into motherhood for a long time. I trained as a reflexlogist 15 years ago and have taught yoga to pregnant women in various venues, includng two London teaching hospitals, since 1999. I then went on to study Thai Massage, an excellent therapy based on acupressure, which uses applied yoga-type stretches and is a holistic treatment. I studied Creative Healing with Dr Gowri and have viewed this as a whole new learning journey with powerful and far-reaching benefits.

Nada Rashed
Egypt
I have been working with reflexology to treat my patients due to my great belief in all its tremedous benefits. I’m also a Homeopath and an intrenational member of Lakeland School in England. I sometimes integrate color therapy with reflexology if needed which adds an overall balancing affect for the whole body.
I’m currently working towards completing my certificate in Targer approach which patients find very helpful to release some of their muscle tension after the reflexology session especially when they have any tension around any body area which is very common.

Jill Taylor Ali
Preston
Lancashire
Jill has over 10 Years experience in Complementary Therapies and has worked in Clinics across Lancashire. She now specialises in treatments for Pre-Pregnancy (Conception), Pregnancy and Birth.
After experiencing a ‘Holistic’ Pregnancy and Birth herself she is dedicated in providing similar experiences for others.
Living a ‘holistic’ lifestyle is something that is achievable for everyone; and pregnancy and birth does not need to be any different. Regardless of where your birth may take place, practicing a wonderful ‘holistic’ pregnancy and creating time to enjoy it is possible.
In this day and age, everyone ‘rushes around’ and nobody has ‘time’ anymore for anything. There is no balance and harmony within work and life. Pregnancy should be a time of joy and one of peace and tranquility. Baby should feel safely cocooned from stresses and strains and Mum should feel able to relax and enjoy her experience.
This is somethime I strive to give to Mum-to-Be… Relaxation and calmness in an otherwise very busy world.
Jill practices out of various clinics within Lancashire and is some cases can also provide mobile treatments too.
Jill is a Member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists
