Reflexology is a way of treating the body in a holistic way by applying pressure to the relevant reflex points on the feet. In particular, blockages that may be the cause of disease are worked on, bringing about a state of equilibrium in the body. It is recommended that a series of at least 4 treatments be given to begin to get marked results.

Dolly is a full member of the governing body for reflexologists in the UK, the AOR.
Maternity reflexology is useful for women during pre-conception, during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, labor and also post-natal. Reflexology will affect the hormonal, emotional and physiological balance in your body.
During pre-conception it has been shown to improve fertility.
During pregnancy, reflexology may help with the following symptoms:
Regular reflexology during pregnancy has been shown to shorten the duration of labor, with many women requiring less pain-relief. Reflexology will benefit post natal women by helping their bodies adjust hormonally after giving birth.
‘I had reflexology with Dolly during my second pregnancy. My anxiety levels were quite high during the second trimester and within one session of reflexology I was amazed at how grounded I felt. During the pregnancy I also had problems with piles and constipation which again were sorted out by Dolly, after a couple of sessions. Her professional manner and level of care is exceptional and I wholeheartedly recommend her.’ J.W.
'The treatment was incredibly relaxing and centering for me. My more recent anxiety is now gone (I'll credit you for that!) I'm feeling good. ' C.S.
‘Dolly is a very gifted, powerful, effective practitioner. She brings such an intuition to me both physically and also emotionally which I find incredibly valuable. I enjoy sessions immensely find them deeply relaxing, therapeutic and very enjoyable.’ A.C.
‘The holistic approach taken by Dolly is excellent and really effective. I am given advice on ways to reduce stress at work as well as having a relaxing massage. I have always found Dolly’s extensive knowledge of both scientific and alternative therapies has allowed me to feel comfortable and confident to get the best of both worlds. I have and always will recommend Dolly to be the first port of call for anyone interested in alternative therapies.’ M.G.
"We live in a fast pace, busy, modern world and we all need time to rebalance. I have been visiting Dolly for over a year now for various treatments including massage, reflexology and flower remedies. And find them invaluable for relaxation and help me to keep on track. I think of them as part luxurious treat and part health maintenance." D.T.
‘I have found Dolly to be a kind, listening and calm therapist with a great sense of humour who has worked with me for some time now with many varied symptoms associated with long term fatigue after a bout of severe Pneumonia. She has a flexible holistic approach and I have had reflexology and manual lymphatic drainage and often a combination of both within one session when needed - she is able and happy to adapt the treatment to my needs. My symptoms are ongoing but I have had improvement in fatigue and always feel better and much lighter and brighter after a treatment with her.’ J.B.
