Reflexology Treatments, Oxfordshire

A relaxing form of pressure massage therapy that works on the reflex points of the feet clearing blockages within the organs and improving energy flow


This ancient therapy is a powerful and deeply relaxing form of pressure massage therapy that works on the reflex points of the feet. The healing powers of reflexology were enjoyed by many ancient cultures including those of China, Japan, India and Egypt. Reflexology gently manipulates pressure points on the feet to stimulate the body’s innate healing mechanisms. By working on the foot alone we can clear blockages within the organs, improve energy flow and bring about balance to all the systems of the body. 

Amongst other things, reflexology is particularly effective for hormonal imbalances (including fertility, menstrual and thyroid issues and menopausal symptoms). It also a recommended treatment for depression and anxiety related disorders, poor circulation, migraines and digestive disorders. 

Regular reflexology is also an excellent form of preventative healthcare.

Your first session will start with a detailed consultation that will enable your therapist to adapt the treatment to your individual needs.

Isolde Stammers

For a number of years I have looked into alternative ways to address disorder or illness with alternative therapy such as Shiatsu, and Homeopathy. This led me to discover Reflexology, Reiki and Holistic Massage. I was impressed with these therapies and went on to study to become a practitioner. Now qualified, I wish to help others achieve a better understanding of health in a whole way, looking at the relationship between body and mind for that individual. I get a great deal of satisfaction from my practice of Reflexology, Reiki and Holistic Massage, and my clients’ positive results that can be sometimes life-changing.

I was born and brought up in London, and gained a BA in Comparative Literature at The American University of Paris and University College London. I study painting and drawing, and write poetry.  I live with my husband and our two sons in Oxfordshire.

Nicola Tew (holistic massage)

Nicola has lived in Faringdon since 2003. She began the journey of holistic practices back in 2013 when she completed her British wheel of Yoga foundation course, 'A journey through the chakras'. She was working in schools at the time and had seen a rapid decline in Children's mental health. In her pursuit of finding resources to support children, she came across Relax Kids. Relax Kids is a seven step programme which offers an unique system of children's relaxation mindfulness that helps decrease stress and anxiety, increases attention span and improves physical wellbeing.

Since doing the training, she has worked freelance in schools, offering six week programmes and wellbeing days. Nicky is now looking forward to offering sessions at the Lotus Retreat. 

Over the last three years, Nicky has also qualified in Reiki, Reflexology and Holistic Massage, and we welcome her to our team at the Lotus Retreat.
