Bowen Therapy - from £32
Bowen is a remedial therapy which works by the gentle stimulation of soft connective tissue and nerves, no muscle pushing or manipulation takes place and you do not have to disrobe. The specific rolling Bowen moves, combined with breaks during which the therapist leaves the room, create a response in the body and the Autonomic Nervous System.
If you are of the opinion that you need to have a painful and firm tissue massage to get results then you might want to think again - the connective tissue is there to protect the body and delicate organs ; If you offend it by pushing too hard it closes down to protect you...
Bowen adopts a different approach - it asks your brain to put your body straight!
The remarkable thing about Bowen Technique is that is gets the body to look at old injuries it has 'given up on' and often heal them.
Bowen is one of the most powerful remedial therapies available at the moment and its effects are often far reaching and permanent; Bowen can help: most skeleto- muscular pain, whiplash, migraines, stress, sciatica, digestive issues, sports injuries, infant colic, and many more.
Here are some testimonials from people who have had Bowen Technique at Reflotherapies
On 3 occasions in recent months, I have been rescued by Bowen Technique from really severe bouts of asthma, which is a chronic problem I have suffered since babyhood. On each occasion I was in a really bad state of breathlessness and anxiety and each time Sam came and worked this gentle "magic" on me. Within an hour I was feeling relaxed and breathing normally again and this was followed by a quiet evening and really good nights sleep. I have no idea how it works, but to me it was a minor miracle and I can't praise the Bowen Technique enough!
I have received a number of treatments through Reflotherapies, most notably Reflexology and Bowen. Both have been extremely therapeutic and I put this down to the very detailed medical history that is taken during the initial consultation and the expertise of Samantha Fisher in applying her extensive knowledge to specific problems. I have benefited in two areas in particular, Arthritis pain has been reduced considerably after Bowen Treatments and a longstanding problem with sinuses is responding well to continuing therapy. I highly recommend Reflotherapies to anyone who is struggling to get results with conventional medicine.
I have suffered for years with neck pain and headaches and went to see Sam for Bowen therapy after trying most other options. I have had 4 sessions and have found it to be very beneficial, my neck and shoulders are much more relaxed and my headaches have been less frequent or severe. Sam is very professional and her therapies great value for money.

Reflexology - from £22
This ancient holistic therapy works on the principle that every part of the body has a corresponding reflex point on the hands or feet and by working through these points we can help the body return to a state of balance and harmony.
Reflexologists use compression massage on the feet to detect any blockages or imbalances, and to clear the energy pathways which run through the body to the feet. This is a deeply relaxing and healing treatment and has been known to help with the following:
- Digestive problems & I.B.S
- Frozen shoulder
- Joint problems
- Fertility problems
- Immune system problems
Reflexology is a very safe and effective treatment for children too. Half hour sessions are available for kiddies - please contact us for more information.
I have been having treatments at Reflotherapies since it opened in 2000. I have tried all the treatments and can recommend them all. Many of my family and friends also attend regularly. Samantha is an excellent therapist, very professional, friendly and helpful. My monthly visits are my treat to myself and I also believe they greatly benefit my health and well being, especially the reflexology, as I work full time and have a busy life and generally stay well.
I visit reflotherapies every month for either reflexology or the Thai foot & leg massage and can highly recommend it, I come away feeling completely and utterly relaxed.
I visited Reflotherapies to receive fertility reflexology to help improve with my chances of conceiving my second child. Sam's experience in this area was nothing short of exceptional and I'm happy to say that the desired result was achieved successfully in a short timeframe. I can thoroughly recommend this business on all counts. A pleasant environment with professional and knowledgeable treatment.

According to Chinese medicine there are acu points which run through the entire body – many of these meridians can be accessed by using Daoyin Tao massage to the head,face,neck and shoulders . The additional use of smooth and soothing western massage techniques makes the whole treatment a truly relaxing and healing experience.

A Daoyin Tao treatment normally lasts about 30 minutes; the practitioner will first conduct a short consultation with the client to establish how and which pressure points need addressing to obtain the best results .Daoyin Tao uses only a carrier or base oil as a medium – although you may use essential oils for your own enjoyment if you wish .

- Neck and shoulder tension
- Bells Palsy
- Frozen/stiff shoulders
- Arthritis in neck and shoulders
- Torticolis (wry neck)
- Glue ear
- Nasal and sinus congestion.
- Jaw tension

Ear Candling - from £25
What is it?
Hopi candles are not actually candles at all , but rolled up linen which has been impregnated with beeswax and essential oils (St.Johns Wort, Sage and Chamomile).
How does it work?
The lighted candle is placed at the entrance to the ear and allowed to burn down to within 4 inches of its’ base; this is essentially a heat treatment and is very soothing and relaxing as the essential oils vapourise into the ear and the warmth is felt around the ear and head. The treatment will normally take about 40 minutes and at the end of that time the therapist may work acupressure points around the ear and face to help the process along.
It works by gently drawing impurities and deposits out of the ear by a ‘chimney’ effect- as the candle burns it creates a mild vacuum and also vibrates the eardrum, helping to move impurities and excess wax. The vapours from the candle also work down the ear, protecting and soothing irritated areas and massaging the lymphatic system.
What is it good for?
Ear candling is very good for decongestion of the head and ears, particularly sinus congestion; it has also been proven to be effective in treating the following:
Headaches, sinusitis, rhinitis
Glue ear, excessive wax, tinnitus
Pain in ears during flights
£25 per treatment or two treatments within a week for £35
