I'm Becky Allen and my passion for reflexology started in my twenties when I travelled around South East Asia. There, and in other parts of the world, complementary therapies are seen as preventative forms of health care that keep the body in balance. Reflexology is a holistic therapy that focuses on unblocking toxins and releasing energy from the systems of the body by pressing various points on "mini body maps" found on the feet, hands or face.
I hold a BA (Hons) PGCE, ITEC Level 3 Reflexology Diploma, First & second Degree Reiki and certificates in Hand Reflexology, Facial Reflexology, Hot Stone Reflexology, Baby & Toddler Reflexology, AromaReflex, Cancer Care Reflexology and Indian Head Massage. I am a member of the FHT professional body and am fully insured through Hiscocks.
As a fan of all things holistic I feel extremely lucky to have a job I love! In my spare time you'll find me crafting, sea swimming, exploring the great outdoors with family and friends and travelling whenever I get the chance.
I look forward to treating you.
How can reflexology help you?
The benefits of reflexology include its ability to stimulate nerve function, increase energy, boost circulation, aid relaxation, eliminate toxins and leave your body feeling balanced.
There are 7,000 nerve endings in your feet! Reflexology will strengthen your immune system and breathe life into your body, making you feel balanced, positive and full of energy!
Although I cannot diagnose medical conditions, I can hopefully help relieve the symptoms of many medical problems.
Reflexology is for everyone! You don't need to have a health concern to come along for a treatment. Reflexology will maintain your good health and boost your immune system and energy levels.
"Becky is so knowledgeable in reflexology...her treatments always leave me feeling relaxed. I cannot recommend her highly enough." - Sue

What to expect from your treatment
During your first treatment I will fill out a detailed consultation form which covers areas of your health and lifestyle. This will help me build up a picture of how I can offer you the best possible treatment.
The only things you will need to remove in a reflexology session are your shoes and socks. My treatment room, based at my home in Christchurch, offers a relaxing environment.
The treatment will begin with a warm up massage followed by the reflexology routine. This will be bespoke, focusing on all the body's systems whilst paying particular attention to any specific needs identified on your consultation form.
You will receive holistic aftercare advice after each treatment in order to prolong the effects. This includes information on general wellbeing and reflexology hand points for you to try at home.
As your therapist I will guarantee you confidentiality, respect and professionalism. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding how Reflexology can benefit you or a member of your family.
Providing you with a holistic toolkit for the whole family
Kids & Teens
Before training as a Reflexologist, I worked in education for 20 years both as a classroom teacher, and later after having my own children, as Special Educational Needs learning support. I've had experience working in pre-school settings, Primary schools and in post 16 education. As well as having a wealth of additional needs experience and training (Dyslexia; Autistic Spectrum; sensory processing; speech, language and communication; mental health awareness), I also have personal experience of raising two children, one of who is neurodiverse, and the benefits that regular reflexology brings to them.
Reflexology can help by:
promoting deep relaxation
reducing stress and stress hormones
ease over stimulation
Reflexology for kids or teens (16 & under) is priced at £20 for 30 minutes.
I have completed safeguarding training but for insurance purposes a parent or carer must be present throughout all treatments.
My Baby sessions (suitable from 4 weeks of age) are based on four 30 minute sessions which cover the following:
Session 1 - Introduction to Baby Reflexology & foot massage
Session 2 - feeding & digestion
Session 3 - Sleeping and comforting
Session 4 - Wellbeing. This covers relief reflexology points for colds, aches & pains, teething and much more.
In these sessions I will teach you how to safely deliver foot reflexology on your own baby and provide you with a pack of informative handouts. The sessions can be delivered on a 1:1 basis or in a group of up to 4 people. Baby & Toddler sessions are priced at £60 for two hours of teaching spread over four sessions.
My toddler sessions (suitable from 12 months) are based on three half hourly sessions which cover the same areas as the baby reflexology. In these sessions I will teach you how to safely deliver both foot and hand reflexology to your toddler through familiar nursery rhymes. These sessions can be delivered on a 1:1 basis or in a group of up to 4 people.
