Tara is a member of the Association of Reflexologists.  She started her training as she has always been interested in alternative therapies seeking them out herself.  She trained firstly in reflexology to initially look to help her mother who suffers with Parkinsons’ Disease and other members of the family and friends that she hoped would benefit from such therapy.  Her treatment of helping people cope with chronic illness and pain is very successful.

    To aid her treatments Tara has added the skill of Solestry enabling her to read the feet and bring together characteristics of her clients that they may not think are relevant or equally forgotten!  This also enables her to look at emotional issues or triggers that may contribute towards illness or simply treat emotional problems.

    She continues her acquisition of skills and is experienced, qualified and trained in infertility, maternity and post natal reflexology.  She has also added the renowned treatment by Sally Kay REFLEXOLOGY LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE to her therapies to help clients with secondary lymphoedema, primary oedema and autoimmune conditions.  She deals with chronic pain and breaking down those barriers to help people cope and deal with the stress involved in chronic painful illnesses.

    Tara is also qualified in infertility/conception, pregnancy and post natal reflexology and has many clients in this area.  Many clients enjoy a combination of treatments perhaps adding Reiki to their treatment or an Ayurvedic lymphatic facial.

    Tara also uses elements of ART (Advanced Reflexology Therapy) and Thai Foot massage in her treatments depending on her clients’ needs.

    Tara is also a tutor for Phoenix Holistic and Beauty training currently teaching Level 3 City and Guilds Reflexology which is a recognised qualification with all the professional bodies including the AOR and FHT.  She is also developing other courses with Phoenix including flower remedies and Advanced reflexology.  As a Reiki Master development of courses offering Reiki Level 1, 2 and master level will be coming soon.

    Facial reflexology and ear candling

    Reflexology can help the body to heal.

    It is a holistic treatment taking into account mind, body and spirit
