Do you long for a bit of peace?
It doesn’t seem to take much to get to the ‘can’t cope’ point, does it? The ‘to do’ list keeps getting longer, there aren’t enough hours in the day to do what you have to do, never mind what you want to do. We ping like a pinball between work, caring commitments, family and friends, jobs around the house and in the garden, always another thing to do, another duty or task to tick off that list. Is it stealing your energy? It’s probably taking it’s toll on you – emotionally, mentally and on your health.
Your health and wellbeing is important to you.
You try to eat the right things. You exercise. But you’re having trouble sleeping. Or maybe your stomach is giving you grief. You’re having mood swings. You’re tearing your hair out. Or there’s too much ‘noise’ in your head - and you can’t find the off switch.
If this sounds familiar, then you are not alone. My job as a solicitor was very stressful. I tried Reflexology and it made such a difference to me – it helped me feel like I could cope, and popped the bubble of anxiety that was swelling up and growing bigger and bigger by the hour.
I loved Reflexology treatments so much, I decided to train as a Reflexologist. I qualified in March 2015 and I find the more I do, the more I love being a Reflexologist, and being able to serve my local community in Wotton-under-Edge and Dursley. It’s a way of making a real difference, and it’s a privilege to be part of what helps a client when they are really going through tough times. I can see the tension leave their face, and I can feel it leave their feet. If a client can relax enough to drop off and sleep, to me that feels like a massive compliment.
Reflexologist working in Wotton-Under-Edge and Dursley
On Mondays and Saturday afternoons you will find me at The Edge Health and Beauty Centre in Wotton-under-Edge.
On Tuesday afternoons, Saturday mornings and some weekday evenings you will find me at my Treatment Cabin in Dursley.
"A relaxing and enjoyable experience"
"I have had both hand and foot reflexology with Sandra and can honestly say I loved them both. Sandra has the knack of making you feel calm and the treatments, in the serene ambiance of the cabin, aided the feeling of well being. Sandra also identified a health problem and my sleeping pattern improved following treatment. Highly recommended."

Prioritise your wellbeing and book a treatment today with your local Reflexologist
It’s more than just treatments, though …. I’m a firm believer in self awareness and in taking proactive steps to look after my wellbeing.
I live in the real world, too, where there are competing priorities for what to spend my money on, so I like to work with clients in a way that highlights what they can do to help themselves.
This includes sharing some simple Hand Reflexology techniques that are easy to do at home, or breathing exercises.
You’ll also find tips and ideas in my Newsletters, and I run drop in sessions once a month on a Saturday morning in my Treatment Cabin in Dursley – follow the instructions on the Newsletters Tab to be added to the mailing list for my Newsletter so you’ll always know when the next one is.
"A calm and relaxing environment"
“Sandra creates a calm and relaxing environment in the garden studio. I have enjoyed Reflexology and Hot Stones Reflexology with her and found both treatments very relaxing. Sandra is calm, friendly and professional with a wealth of experience and knowledge”

Life is an ongoing journey of learning new things
I continue to learn with each pair of feet or hands that I work on – every person is unique, and their life journey is often reflected there. I seek to continuously improve and add new skills, so I can support my clients, and I'm looking forward to being able to serve more of the local community, in Stroud, Nailsworth and Tetbury.
I’m qualified to offer Hot Stone Reflexology treatments. I’m certified to perform Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage and I’m close to completing my Diploma in Oncology and Reflexology. In September 2018 I'll be training in Reflexology techniques to support conception and pregnancy.
Happy to be making a difference as a Reflexologist, supporting the community in Wotton-under-Edge and Dursley
I’ve volunteered as a Reflexologist at Longfield since May 2017. I support the Nelsons Trust in Swindon when time permits, and I’m on the roster of therapists who volunteer to support Carers Gloucestershire.
I use locally sourced Reflexology balm which uses organic ingredients, and organic Jojoba oil for Hot Stone and Cold Stone Treatments.
