Thank you for visiting my website, I hope it will provide the kind of useful and relevant information you are looking for.


If you are keen to learn a little more about reflexology, its benefits and how a treatment session works, please click here. Word of mouth is the best recommendation, so please take a minute to read what previous clients have said about their treatments. You can find an overview of my services and prices in the Treatments section and book a treatment here.  

A few words about me...

I have been passionate about complementary therapies since I was a teenager, when I discovered Bach Flower Remedies. This later lead to me qualifying as a Bach Flower Therapies Practitioner and also as a Reiki practitioner before embarking on a career in nursing. Following a long-standing ambition to run my own clinics as a qualified complementary therapist in parallel with my work within the NHS, I decided to train as a professional reflexologist and graduated from HDFT NHS Natural Health School in Harrogate with an ITEC level 3 Diploma in Reflexology and Anatomy & Physiology.


To me, one of the greatest benefits of reflexology is that as a complementary therapy it can be safely integrated with conventional medical treatment, with very few exceptions. Every person is different and so every reflexology session is tailored to meet individual needs. The many positive effects and benefits clients report after receiving reflexology never cease to amaze me, and I feel very privileged to be a part of my clients' journey and for the trust they put in me. I love learning and am always looking for ways to further expand my knowledge and skills in order to continually improve my service.

My treatment room at Wetherby Physiotherapy Practice offers a professional and friendly atmosphere for you to relax in while enjoying your treatment.

About Reflexology

Reflexology is a non-intrusive, gentle yet effective complementary therapy for all ages and suitable for most people with very few exceptions and contra-indications.  It can be used as a stand-alone treatment or alongside conventional medicine as part of an integrated care plan, and referrals from healthcare professionals are welcome.

Reflexology is based on the theory that different points on the feet (and hands, face or ears) correspond with different areas of the body. Practitioners work holistically and use their thumbs, fingers or knuckles to stimulate specific reflex points, which is thought to help re-balance the functioning of our organs and systems. The body is supported in maintaining and regaining  its natural state of equilibrium. 

Reflexology is offered in a variety of mainly private settings but also in some NHS settings, such as cancer units and hospices.

The therapy is also covered by a number of private healthcare insurance and health cash plan providers so you may wish to check your policy if you have one.

The evidence describing the positive effects of reflexology is mainly anecdotal, however there is a limited but growing body of research evidence exploring its potential health benefits. Please note that reflexology should not be used in place of conventional medical care. Always consult your GP or a health professional for medical attention and advice.

If you are under the care of a medical practitioner for a diagnosed condition, you could speak to them about whether they would support you having reflexology as an adjunct to your medical treatment. They may find it helpful to read the section for Health Professionals on this website.



Reflexology is suitable for all ages. Anecdotal evidence as well as a growing number of research studies suggest that reflexology can offer a variety of health benefits, which includes, but is not limited to those listed below. Please get in touch to find out how reflexology could support your individual health needs.


Reflexology is suitable for all ages and is often reported to improve people's quality of life.


Since every person is different, the effects individuals experience from a treatment can vary widely. Because of the way reflexology is thought to work, it may virtually reach and positively influence any part of the body and the functioning of our organs, glands and systems. Health benefits include but are not limited to 

  • Relaxation

  • Improved mood

  • Better quality of sleep

  • Release of tension

  • Reduce anxiety and stress

  • Enhanced general feeling of well-being

  • Increased energy levels

Treatments may also support people living with various other symptoms linked to ill-health.

Please do get in touch to discuss your individual health concerns and how reflexology could help you. 


What to expect

Reflexologists work holistically meaning we treat you, the person, rather than a particular condition.


You are made to feel welcome in a space that feels safe and comfortable, empathetic and non-judgemental. An initial consultation provides an opportunity to look at your medical history and to discuss what you are hoping to get out of your treatment and any particular health concerns you may have. Your details and anything we discuss will of course be treated confidentially.


The consultation forms the basis of an individually tailored and agreed treatment plan. You may also be asked to rate your health concerns using a simple assessment tool - this enables both of us to monitor changes and improvements in the way you feel and helps us assess whether the treatment plan is working for you.

Because the treatment focuses on reflexes found on the feet, there is no need to take off any clothing apart from socks and shoes. During the treatment, you may choose to chat and feed back on how you are feeling or you may just want to close your eyes and relax. It is not uncommon for people to relax deeply enough to fall asleep! No two treatments are the same, but please allow 90 minutes for your initial appointment and approximately 60 minutes for subsequent sessions.  

After your treatment, you will be invited to drink some water as this will help your body eliminate toxins and waste products that have been released by the treatment. We will also talk about aftercare and as part of this we may discuss aspects of a healthy lifestyle and simple self help methods to use at home to further enhance and help maintain the benefits of your treatment. This can involve teaching you how to work certain reflexes on your hands at home, if this is something you are happy to do. This puts you in control and supports you in self-managing your wellbeing.


Infection prevention is an important aspect of my service, and you can find more information on the measures that are in place for your safety and peace of mind here.

“I would highly recommend Mel for reflexology treatments. I personally have found them very beneficial for my well-being and for reducing tension levels in general. The treatment itself is very relaxing and can leave me either deeply relaxed or quite energised depending on the day. Mel herself is very professional and puts you instantly at ease.”
