Reflexology

Reflexology is available at the surgery by private arrangement: An experienced local reflexology practitioner, Eileen Stevenson, uses a room in the adjoining surgery every week, and appointments can be made with her by asking at reception and we will put your details into her diary. Reflexology can be helpful in many conditions, including in babies with colic who sometimes respond after only one short treatment session. Reflexology involves specialised massage to the soles of the feet, and usually takes between half an hour and an hour depending on your case.
