Ally Brown, MAR (Member of the Association of Reflexologists)
Ally originally trained in therapeutic massage in 1989 as she was very interested in natural health and therapies from a young age. At that time though, she worked full time in Central London so it was more of a hobby to treat my friends and family. About ten years later, she was suffering from a range of symptoms and just didn’t feel right – sleep patterns were dreadful, no energy, intolerant to many foods and fighting infections all the time with kidney problems. Nothing the doctor said or prescribed had any effect whatsoever, she was drained with fatigue. A friend was training to be a reflexologist and she was sceptical! How can someone pressing your feet have much of an affect! She became a case study and after 3 sessions all symptoms cleared up. Hooked, she enrolled on the next course possible to do a year’s training, completing training in 2001.
She began practising straight away with some regular clients – she was then invited to Nepal to train basic reflexology for first aid, travelling around some hilltop villages that only had one small room to serve as the local school by day, but also somewhere for people to gather in the evenings as most people we visited had no electricity in their own homes. Some years later, she also travelled to China and Tibet spending time in the Beijing General Hospital and Lhasa People’s Hospital seeing how they treated people on their wards. In both these hospitals, the natural therapy department took up most of the space with only a tiny dispensing clinic for drugs – they had a whole department full of massage and reflexology to treat people with strokes, heart attacks and cancer. It was an eye-opener to say the least.
Now she has been practising for over 20 years, and is still as passionate as ever about reflexology. People come with a wide range of symptoms – arthritis, back pain, ME, MS, insomnia, anxiety, menopausal or fertility issues, migraine to name but a few. Reflexology does not diagnose, but seeks to calm the central nervous system, promoting deep relaxation and encouraging the immune system into a response to work better. Reflexology works better with a course of treatments, but can also be an indulgent one-off treat for general well-being.
As well as foot reflexology, she also offers also facial reflexology using a map of the reflex points on the face – this has the added bonus of reducing fine lines and puffiness of the face, and has been likened to a mini ‘face-lift’ as it tightens facial muscles. It can also help with migraine and insomnia and improves skin tone.
Ally’s favourite quote which sums up reflexology by Enince Ingham, the 20th century pioneer of modern reflexology “If you are feeling out of kilter, don’t know why or what about, let your feet reveal the answer, find the sore spot and work it out.”

Whether you are battling a chronic disease or just looking to improve your lifestyle, good nutrition is central to optimal health.

In an initial consultation with Annie, she will go through a detailed health history and examine the functioning of every major body system, as well as analysing your current diet and lifestyle, and any recent lab tests you may have had.
Annie offers a range of consultation packages to suit your goals. To see how her practice can help you, please see her website:

Jo Lee trained as a life coach after working as a GP partner for 12 years. Life Coaching is a talking therapy focused on helping people to make changes to benefit their wellbeing. The approach is holistic and any area of life can be the focus of the work. Some people will feel very clear about what they want to change and others may just have a sense that something is not right and may need help to explore what their priorities are. The process may involve exercises to facilitate new perspectives on individual problems.
In 2008, Jo co-founded LYLAC: Live Your Life After Cancer for people who are struggling to find a way forward after cancer. LYLAC provides individual coaching and group workshops for men and women with any cancer diagnosis. Jo loves to work with people to help them to feel empowered and ready to find their own ‘right’ way forward.
Cancer Coaching provides support and an effective way to assist people in dealing with the impact of cancer on their lives. As well as affecting people physically, cancer may also cause depression, anxiety and loss of confidence, challenge relationships and affect peoples’ working lives. After treatment, people often feel vulnerable, unsupported and overwhelmed. The Coaching relationship supports people in processing their experience, increasing awareness, and reassessing priorities, with the focus on finding a good way forward, which will be different for each person.
