I’m Jayne, a fully qualified Reflexologist & Reiki Master and have been practising for the last 17 years. My practice is based in in Ettington, Stratford Upon Avon, Warwickshire where I provide reflexology, reiki and complementary therapies to help people restore their equilibrium.
My first introduction to reflexology treatments was for fertility issues where I became fascinated by the subject. Having worked for many years as a Financial Services Manager I decided to postpone my career when my second child was born I decided to train privately, using the very gentle but powerful South African universal method of Reflexology devised by Chris Stormer.
I became involved with Reiki while training to be a Reflexologist; one of my case studies was a Reiki Master and she suggested that I became attuned to level one for protection. I have had some wonderful experiences with Reiki, it is truly a magical therapy - this led me to train to be a Reiki Master. I am very honoured to have been attuned to levels Sakara 2 & 3. Being a Qualified Trainer and Training Manager I enjoy running a Reiki training school and some fun one-day workshops. I also love carrying out talks and presentations. I am a preferred supplier for Jaguar Landrover staff training.
Reflexology and reiki can benefit a wide range of people and conditions; pregnancy and fertility issues, children who can't sleep, cancer care, people with learning difficulties, builders with aches and pains, stressed business people, cleaners with dermatitis, arthritis and sports injuries. I am also linked to a medical practice, with the cancer care societies, being trained in Palliative care. I have given talks to various groups, MS society, ME groups, women's groups and cancer societies.
As a registered Member of the Association of Reflexologists and the Reiki and Seichem Association, I am governed by the strict codes of practice and ethics of these associations. I am also a member of the Reiki & Seichem Association and the Professional Reflexology Group.

The Association of Reflexologists are conducting a research project on the benefits of reflexology with Migraine suffers – if you or someone you knows fits the criteria please get in touch by email.
To be included participants will match the below inclusion criteria;
1.Diagnosis by a GP or hospital Doctor.
2.Still having Migraines now.
3.Hope that they may benefit from the reflexology
4.Having other ongoing issues as well as Migraine is acceptable so long as the symptoms chosen on the MYMOP form are Migraine related.
5.Can be taking medication for Migraines.
6.The Migraines are of sufficient frequency to see a difference over 6 treatments (eg one Migraine a year is not frequent enough).
7.Ideally - a minimum of one treatment per month should be suggested as therapeutic advice.
8.The client consents to involvement.
1.Migraine is self-diagnosed without medical input
2.The Migraines are too infrequent to notice a difference.
3.There are other ongoing overlapping medical issues – brain tumour or previous damage to the brain which could be causing problems.
4.Migraines have been diagnosed in the past but are now no longer active.
5.The client does not consent to involvement.
Insufficient treatments take place – less than 6.
Only participants with 6 or more treatments can be included BUT this does not mean that the data would be wasted as it can be used to help the client understand the changes, they have made in the treatments they have received. We will be adding a ‘how to use the data’ button soon.
Blog; Optimise Your Energy This Christmas
Christmas is the season for making merry and with all that tempting food and drink at your fingertips, it’s easy to be guilty of a little festive overindulgence. To help you enjoy the Christmas festivities without regretting your choices come January, try this survival guide.
Optimise Your Energy
When we’re tired and sluggish we tend to overeat. Staying active will help you keep your fingers out of the Quality Street tin and burn some excess calories.
Eat light wholesome nutritious meals in between feasts.
Take breaks from sugar, sweets, alcohol and refined carbohydrates in between feasts.
Keep well hydrated with water and herbal teas.
Do exercise or a walk in the fresh air each day.
Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night.
Don’t overheat your home. 18-21 degrees and cooler at night is about right.
Keep Your Tummy Happy
Indigestion, bloating and gas are common symptoms of overindulgence.
Eat slowly and chew thoroughly.
Don’t drink too much with meals.
Allow sometime between courses.
Have a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar or bitters in some water 30 minutes before your meal to help improve your digestion.
Avoid Headaches and Hangovers
Drinking sensibly is always the best advice, but when the fizz is flowing, it’s easy to leave your sensibilities with your shoes by the side of dance floor! Excess alcohol can lead to dehydration the combination of which often results in a headache or hangover.
Drink a glass of water in between alcoholic drinks and before you go to bed.
Don’t drink on an empty stomach. Fatty foods – the good fats – are your best bet to help reduce the risk of a hangover. Opt for healthy oils in salmon, mackerel, tuna, avocado, olive oil, coconut oil.
The day after, eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and ideally give yourself a few days break before consuming alcohol again.
Avoid Dry Skin and Hair
Central heating, freezing temperatures and overindulgences can wreak havoc with our skin and hair.
Moisturise thoroughly. Try using your night cream during the day as these are usually oiler and heavier than day creams.
Minimise central heating in your home. Rather put a sweater on than crank up the heating too high.
Consume plenty of oily foods. Oily fish, flax seeds, avocado, nuts and seeds, olive oil, coconut oil and take an omega 3 supplement.
Eat plenty of leafy greens and red, orange and yellow fruits and vegetables.
Enjoy the season and be mindful of taking care of yourself!
