Clare has many years of training and experience, beginning with her first love, Reflexology, and also covering massage, Aromatherapy, and Indian Head massage. Clare is also a Reiki Master.
She has always known that people are complex, that emotional issues may impact upon physical health. She knows the little word “stress” can relate to conditions ranging from mild unease to deep-seated physical problems.
Each treatment will have therapeutic value, but it is also the time and attention paid to the individual that can be so beneficial; “well-being” goes deeper than just feeling happier.
Clare has continued to study post-graduate courses, including three courses in Vertical Reflex Therapy – a method of Reflexology pioneered by Lynn Booth that intensifies any treatment.
She also spent two years studying Maternity Reflexology with Suzanne Enzer, attending a successful birth, as well as preparing mums-to-be for that wonderful day (and afterwards!!). Clare has also worked with many would-be mothers on issues of fertility, and has a high success rate.
In concentrating on her first love, Reflexology, Clare has developed a unique approach to each session. Appropriate essential oils are added to the foot cream, thus enhancing the treatment. For the final part of the treatment, Clare deeply relaxes the client to the point where this state is taken on into the day, and gradually longer periods.
Clare has also studied sound therapy, following a two year course with Alan Sales at the Institute of Cyberkinetics. As his web-site says: “Vibrational sound energy has long been known to be a potent source of healing therapy. Sound and Frequency are now recognised and used in a wide range of applications within the fields of conventional and complementary medicine.” Combining her Healing Tuning Forks within a Reiki treatment, Clare offers a session both relaxing and therapeutic.
Clare is a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapies.
