Forms of reflexology applied: foot and hand reflexology, ART techniques, VRT, meridians, synergistic reflexology and auricular.
‘I would like to give a massive thanks to Kirsty for my Reflexology treatments to date, she has incredible knowledge on the body and how to diagnose problem areas. She always takes the time to tailor a bespoke session and review how I feel and what I need. She even teaches me techniques I can use at home allowing me to serve myself and understand my body better. As a result I have increased awareness of my own body from these sessions.
I originally decided to go to Kirsty as my feet always felt tired and weighed down and I had a number of issues with my digestion, skin, energy levels and focus so wanted to get more of a balance with my health overall. I usually arrive straight from work with a busy mind where I can be overthinking but within 5 minutes of Kirsty’s treatment I am relaxed and have that peaceful ‘me time’ in the cabin! The sessions leave me incredibly relaxed on the evening of my treatment and full of energy the next day.
I have occasionally shown up to my regular appointments with extra issues such as headaches, allergic reactions, and a runny nose. At the beginning of the session Kirsty has managed to clear these issues that I may have had for days, I was very pleased how quickly she could treat me on these symptoms. Over the course of the treatments my feet no longer feel heavy or tired, my energy levels have returned to normal, I have more focus and my digestion has hugely improved.
I look forward to each of my treatments and would happily recommend Kirsty as a reflexologist and as a friendly, knowledgeable therapist.’

‘I visit Complete reflexolog
Forms of reflexology applied: foot and hand reflexology, ART techniques, VRT, meridian reflexology, synergistic and auricular.
‘I contacted Kirsty at a time of great stress re my health. I was feeling despondent about the future and rather battered after a series of operations and other unpleasant interventions. I am a sceptic about most things including complementary therapies. Kirsty dealt with my scepticism by gently but firmly putting me back on my feet. She is very professional and continues to hone her expertise. She is thorough, thoughtful and kind and takes enormous trouble in responding sensitively as the condition evolves. The treatments have recalibrated me on a physical, psychological and emotional level. I can’t thank Kirsty enough and without reservation recommend anyone looking for a reflexologist to contact her.’
Forms of reflexology applied: foot and hand reflexology and ART techniques.
‘Kirsty has a gift for making people feel great. From her caring and kind persona to her incredible skills and knowledge in reflexology. From my first session in ‘the cabin’ I felt positive changes and she has taught me how to use techniques in my every day life. She has magic hands. Thank you Kirsty.’
Forms of reflexology applied: foot, hand and auricular reflexology, ART techniques and meridian reflexology.
‘Kirsty is wonderful! From the first session, I knew that I had found someone special. I have had IBS and digestive problems for over 30 years which has caused anxiety. I have been seeing Kirsty for nearly a year and I can honestly say that my health and sense of well-being has improved. My digestive system has calmed down and I no longer have acid reflux. My whole body feels lighter when I leave Kirsty’s lovely cabin in her garden. I always sleep well on the night after my treatment.
Kirsty is warm and friendly and puts you at your ease straightaway. I am very interested in how my body reacts to the treatment and Kirsty is very good at sharing her knowledge and is happy to show you how you can administer the techniques on yourself.
I had lost faith in the NHS and I wanted to take back control of my own body. Kirsty has helped me on the way.’

‘Such an amazing session this week with Kirsty, very calming and definitely felt like I let lots go!! She is amazing and really does wonders for all of my health issues. Keeping pain at bay and rejuvenating my whole self. I would recommend her to everyone (and do so frequently!!).’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Stress, back and shoulder problems
Forms of reflexology applied: foot reflexology, ART techniques, VRT, hand reflexology and meridian reflexology.
‘I love going to see Kirsty and her healing hands. I always feel refreshed and relaxed after my appointments in the cabin. I suffer with back and shoulder issues and since seeing Kirsty have really learned to start listening to my body and focus on my well-being. Kirsty always takes the time to ask how I feel, creates a plan to work on any issues I have and gives lots of support and advice on what course of action is best suited to my needs. I would highly recommend her.’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Stress, anxiety, hormonal issues and severe muscle tension.
Forms of reflexology applied: foot reflexology, ART techniques, VRT, meridian reflexology, hand reflexology, synergistic and auricular.
‘I have been seeing Kirsty for several months now and can honestly say I am bowled over with both her and the treatment ! When I first started visiting Kirsty, my stress anxiety levels were very high, to the point where daily function was becoming hard. She has not only helped in massively reducing this, but also in helping me find balance both mentally and physically. She has also treated me for hormonal issues and severe muscle tension, both of which respond so positively to the reflexology treatment.
Each treatment is always different, tailored to where you are and what you need at that time. Its always hard to ‘lay yourself bare’ to someone you have never met, but Kirsty’s approach and genuine care makes this so easy. I look forward hugely to each treatment and use them as part of my ‘armour’ in coping with the day to day stresses of life, work and motherhood.’
Reasons for seeeking reflexology: Peri-menopause symptoms
Forms of reflexology applied: foot reflexology, ART techniques, VRT, hand reflexology, meridian reflexology, synergistic and auricular.
‘I have been seeing Kirsty for just over a year in the hope of easing menopausal symptoms. Her knowledge and her genuine want to help you is clear. She uses a variety of reflexology techniques and I found ear seeds really helpful.
A year on I feel much improved with my mood lifting, energy levels rising and generally symptoms decreasing. I would hole heartedly recommend her for anyone seeking support with any health issue.’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Peri-menopause symptoms, sinuses, disturbed sleep & lack of energy
Forms of reflexology applied: foot reflexology, ART techniques, VRT, meridian reflexology, synergistic and auricular.
‘I started going to see Kirsty in April 2016 as I had been experiencing symptoms associated with peri menopausal, chronic sinus pain, sleep disruption and generally had lack of energy. I had previously had reflexology 10 years ago and knew there could be benefits to having treatment.
When I first met Kirsty she made me very welcome, put me at ease and took a comprehensive history and discussed her plan of treatment. Initially I had weekly visits for 4 weeks and then went to monthly and for the last 3-4 months have treatments 5-6 weekly.
I have had great improvement with sinus pain and sleep pattern/disruption is much less and now find that I fall back to sleep much quicker than previously. Kirsty has given me guidance around reflexology I can do on myself which has appeared to help control and reduce down symptoms associated with menopause. I look forward to my treatments and find that they support me feeling balanced in mind and body and have generally raised my overall energy levels.’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Stress, relaxation and feeling imbalanced
Forms of reflexology applied; foot reflexology, ART techniques, VRT, meridian reflexology, synergistic and auricular.
‘Kirsty is absolutely wonderful. I first visited her for a treatment a year or so ago, as I was impressed by her level of qualification and the different aspects of reflexology she offered. I have since experienced them all – feet, ears, hands, meridians, VRT- no two treatments are the same as each is tailored exactly to what you need at that time. She is professional and friendly and takes time to listen, as well as making efforts to track your wellbeing and health and research any ailments or symptoms you might have. It has been an immensely busy and stressful year for me and I have found Kirsty’s treatments, her warm manner and her intuitive nature invaluable for helping to keep me healthy, balanced and able to manage day to day pressure and deadlines. I always feel incredibly relaxed and sleep deeply after visiting her and have felt amazing energy movements during her treatments. Highly recommended – I’d go every day if I could!’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Relaxing and rebalancing
Forms of reflexology applied; VRT and foot reflexology
‘I had an incredible treatment from Kirsty last week. She took time to find out about me, my ailments, my lifestyle and we discussed what I hoped to get from the treatment. I really loved the way she explained what she was doing throughout and was impressed with how she used different techniques to help my body achieve what it needed; I came away feeling very relaxed. That evening I was absolutely shattered but had a very good night’s sleep and woke up the next morning feeling energised. I will definitely return for further treatments; Kirsty is a friendly, professional reflexologist and I really felt the benefit from having a session with her.’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Pre-Menstrual Tension (PMT), stress and anxiety
Forms of reflexology applied; foot reflexology, VRT, synergistic and meridian reflexology.
‘I have enjoyed every element of my 6 week course of treatment with Kirsty, beginning with how immediately apparent her concern around understanding, monitoring and helping is. I have been battling cyclical PMT symptoms for around 4 years since my first pregnancy. I looked up alternative therapy to investigate as another of my jigsaw puzzle pieces, that I have managed to slowly assemble over the last couple of years, focusing on diet, exercise and rest! Tiredness and anxiety, which can then easily lead to me feeling stressed are the main symptoms that I find myself dealing with, normally twice monthly (around ovulation and before my period starts). I am certain that my varied course of reflexology treatment did contribute to helping to alleviate and lessen these symptoms – whilst also identifying and treating some others that I wasn’t expecting to find along the way! I’m planning to make Kirsty a regular element of my ‘keeping on top of PMT’ mission! I am pleased to have met a genuinely caring therapist whom is very clearly practicing at the forefront of her profession.’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Peri-menopause, migraines and neck pain
Forms of reflexology applied; foot reflexology, VRT and auricual Reflexology.
‘I’d always been interested in the idea of reflexology, but was wary of it actually working for me. I’d been bought a Complete Reflexology gift voucher for my birthday and it couldn’t have been a better choice. I went to Kirsty hoping she could help me with peri menopausal symptoms, migraines and neck pain. During my first visit I knew this treatment would work for me.
Kirsty is extremely professional and very knowledgable, she made me feel at ease and explained how the treatments could re balance my mind and body. Even after my first visit to Kirsty I felt more positive and had more energy, the on going treatments have reduced the frequency of my headaches and migraines, which have helped with my neck pain. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kirsty and have already done so.’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Following a hip replacement and low mood
Forms of reflexology applied; foot reflexology, VRT and auricular reflexology.
‘I have been going to Kirsty for 4 months. I have found her to be very welcoming, professional and easy to talk to. The reflexology has helped me to understand my body more, Kirsty has given me tips to use at home and the comfortable surroundings help to relax and rejuvenate oneself.
It is amazing how reflexology and your body work. I would recommend this service to anyone who either wants to know more about reflexology and how it can help their own body. It’s fascinating how it works and how my body has reacted to kirsty working on my feet, ears and hands. It’s helped me to unwind from a busy stressful life.’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Sinusitis and other long term conditions
Forms of reflexology applied; foot reflexology, VRT, meridian reflexolgy & synergistic reflexology
Forms of reflexology applied; foot reflexology, VRT, synergistic and meridian reflexology.
‘If you have never tried reflexology before, I would highly recommend it. I went to see Kirsty feeling run down and out of sorts. From the moment I entered the treatment room I felt instantly relaxed. Kirsty makes you feel really welcome and is so professional and easy to talk to. Reflexology has helped me to rebalance and is a big part of my health and wellbeing regime.’
Forms of reflexology applied; foot reflexology and meridian reflexology
‘I have just finished a course of treatment with Kirsty at Complete Reflexology. Having suffered the debilitating symptoms of burning mouth syndrome for over a year nothing I tried helped ease the pain or inflammation.
Out of desperation I decided to try a course of reflexology, I was amazed at the results, my mouth is now healed and feels normal also my level of stress is now far less than before.
Another, amazing reaction is that I can now hear and hold a phone to my left ear after being permanently deaf for the last few years and having decreased hearing since childhood.
Kirsty is a very kind and caring professional reflexologist and I would definitely recommend her.’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Stress
Forms of reflexology applied; foot reflexology, synergistic and meridian reflexology
‘I finished my treatment with Kirsty and I am a bit sad at the idea of not having a session this week. From the start Kirsty made me feel at ease and explained clearly what she would do. Week after week, tensions in my body lessened and overall now I am more relaxed and my body feels energised.
I never liked my feet (I know some of you reading this feel the same) so it was challenging for me to even show them. Now that I understand what they can do for me, I respect them. All this massaging with essential oils means that they look better now as well, a bonus.
Thank you Kirsty, my feet and I will surely come back at some point just for the pleasure! I highly recommend you. Thanks again!’
Reason for seeking reflexology: Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Forms of reflexology applied: foot reflexology, synergistic and meridian reflexology
‘I would have no hesitation in recommending Kirsty, she is professional, knowledgeable, warm and highly skilled. I would say that she is dedicated and committed to helping her clients in a holistic way to feel better physically, emotionally and spiritually. I came to see Kirsty as I was having really severe PMS, which affected my mood, sleep patterns and I generally felt tired all of the time. She was very easy to talk to and worked hard to devise the most appropriate treatment plan for me, meaning that I started to feel the benefits really quickly. My mood improved, I have not had many problems with nocturnal waking since I started having treatment and my cycle has regulated which has improved my energy levels significantly.
I really enjoyed the use of advanced reflexology techniques, especially the linking and the meridians. I have not experienced some of these techniques before despite having had a lot of reflexology from lots of different practitioners! These techniques I felt added a unique dimension to the standard treatments one receives and I am sure that they contributed to the overall improvement in my symptoms.’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Chronic Back Pain for over 2-years
Forms of reflexology applied; auricular reflexology and hand reflexology
‘After visiting chiropractors and physiotherapists for back pain I decided to try reflexology. Kirsty at Complete Reflexology carried out a full assessment prior to treatment and together we decided to treat my ears and hands.
As I was a little nervous for treatment on my feet Complete Reflexology offers an alternative experience of reflexology.
I was genuinely surprised at the results. After 6 treatments my back pain was much better and Kirsty gave me hand exercises to do to enable me to self heal in between sessions.
Kirsty’s professional yet friendly approach put me at ease during each session. I would highly recommend Complete Reflexology for anyone looking for a positive and unique experience.’
Reasons for seeking reflexology: Abdominal Pain for 10 weeks:
Forms of reflexology applied; foot reflexology, synergistic and meridian reflexology.
‘I attended four treatments with Kirsty. Each time I was greeted with a smile and was welcomed into a warm, clean and comfortable environment. I was given information on reflexology and at each session Kirsty explained what she was doing and where on the body she was treating. I found this really important to know and she was able to locate and work on my abdomen and work through some tenderness I had.
I had been having ongoing abdominal pain for 10 weeks, having varying tests, scans all of which found nothing to identify the source of the problem. Since having reflexology this pain has stopped and not returned and from my experience the reflexology aided and influenced the healing of this unknown pain.’
Reason for seeking reflexology: Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Forms of reflexology applied; foot reflexology and auricular reflexology
‘As soon as I stepped into the reflexology treatment room, I felt an immediate sense of relaxation and calm with the beautiful aromas. I started my reflexology course of five treatments, feeling tired and lethargic having heavy PMS symptoms for 2-weeks of each month. I had never had reflexology before but had always wanted to try it as I had heard about the health benefits. Following my treatments I felt a real sense of calm, the PMS symptoms have stopped and I feel really balanced and relaxed, the best I have felt in a long time. I would highly recommend Complete Reflexology.’
Reason for seeking reflexology: Sinusitis for over 16 years
Forms of reflexology applied; foot reflexology
‘It was my first experience of reflexology and I was slightly sceptical. I went to see Kirsty to see if she could help me with sinusitis, which I’ve suffered with for over 16 years. I’m delighted to say that I haven’t had a bout of sinusitis since my treatment ended in October 2014.’
Reason for seeking reflexology: Acid reflux for 6-months and neck and shoulder pain for 2-years
Form of reflexology applied; foot reflexology
‘I looked forward to receiving my weekly treatments and felt invigorated after each session. To be rid of my acid reflux and shoulder and neck pain feels wonderful.’

‘I found my hand treatments to be really relaxing. Kirsty was very knowledgeable and explained what she was doing and how all the different areas of my hand corresponded to specific areas on my body. She also incorporated other areas of reflexology for a totally holistic experience. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.’
