Reflexologist Laura Devonshire explains what happens when you come for a reflexology appointment.

*Laura is running a special offer during December 2019 *



Your first Reflexology treatment includes in-depth personal consultation to understand your medical and lifestyle history, this is to ensure the treatment is tailored specifically to your needs and requirements.


Laura will make you comfortable with bolster support for your knees and ankles. It is only necessary to remove your shoes and socks for the treatment as pressure will only be applied to the feet and lower legs. Laura may also treat the hands if necessary.


There are many different reactions one can experience during a treatment and each person responds differently, also understanding it can change with each treatment depending on what you are experiencing and how you are feeling on that particular day.


One may experience some of the following reactions; changes in temperature, changes in emotions: feeling the need to laugh, cry or sigh. Feeling of being in a deep meditative state or on occasion falling asleep. One may experience visualisations, different tingling sensations across the body or feelings of some pain and discomfort over specific reflex points.


The treatment closes with a foot massage using a soothing and nourishing organic cream and grounding to gently bring you round. It’s important to drink plenty of water to help with the clearing and cleansing process.


You can feel the effects of the treatment in the following days as reflexology continues working to achieve a state of homeostasis. Based on your needs and requirements you can discuss follow up sessions that can either form part of a complete treatment plan or be stand-alone for relaxation and balance.


Laura is a qualified Preconception and Pregnancy Reflexology Practitioner.

Skincare and natural face lift massage therapist Veronica Massa shares an offer for the festive season.


Don’t forget your face!

Do you exercise your body but not your face?

Are you worried that your face is sagging and not keeping up with your fit body?

Are you stressed and your face is holding the tension making you look older?

Is your skin looking tired and dull?

Are you too busy with no time for yourself?


FACIAL MASSAGE CAN BE YOUR ANSWER!

Face massage is a very effective way of treating the skin and tone underlying muscles, lift and sculpt the face with methods from a professional skin and face specialist.

“Good products exist but are not really going to do much if you just slap them on your face and call it a day. The results come with application using firming, lifting, contouring motions and massage techniques which show remarkable results. If more people were practicing this, there would be much less need to undergo unnecessary invasive methods.”

Veronica’s work is well respected for her natural and holistic approach, her quality botanical skincare and her high-performance signature bespoke treatments which integrate Traditional Chinese Medicine theory and tools. She passionately shares face massage styles in her self-care workshops. www.facialritulas.london

What clients say:

The look of a natural face lift: my skin looks and feels more radiant, and my face looks more alive and bright, even if I am tired. Since Veronica has been working on my face, I can see such a difference in the freshness of my look. I highly recommend Veronica and her service to each and every woman who would like the look of a natural face lift. Chyna Whyne, Performing Artist


My skin felt firmer and my skin tone definitely improved. The furrows above and below my lips improved and filled in nicely. It was also the most relaxing treatment I have had and I came away each time feeling much less stressed and always slept well afterwards. Carol

WNT founder and manager Jennie Duck shares her experience of the WNT team effort in making a video and in general how this collaborative ethos sets the tone for a great clinic and studio.



We made this video with footage taken on an in-house photo and video shoot when I was down for our 5th birthday celebrations at the start of October. It feels appropriate that the collaborative ethos of our work made the very tools that we want to use to promote it - what we can achieve when we get together.


It's been so exciting to see the fruits of our efforts in putting together a video showing who we are as WNT and how we work. The 90 second video we've made really does show us, it gives an authentic feel for our clinic and studio space and us as a team. I'm really proud and happy that the place and environment shown in this video is West Norwood Therapies, a seed I sowed back in 2014 that has grown to be so much more than me working alone in a room! The collaborative ethos and energy that shines through in the video is what makes WNT unique and pretty damn awesome :-)



That trip south (from my rural home on the West coast of Scotland) was a fabulous few days. We were all really excited to be together for celebrating our birthday - it's a rare privilidge to be with each and every one of us, it can be hard to get a dynamic gang in one place at once! We had a meeting on the Saturday afternoon, refelcting on our successes and challenges as individual practitioners as well as a collective. We rounded this off with a 'cup of friendship' - a Scottish tradition involving a bottle of whiskey and a quaich. Yummy.



After our meeting we headed out to one of WN's best local restaurants, The Garden (even more yummy) and nursed our hangovers at Feast the next day before turning WNT into a photo studio and shooting a pile of photos and videos to help us with promoting our unique and awesome business with the people we want to work with (you!).


I keep coming back to 4 words to describe the experience in working with the Wonderful Women of WNT and those are: warm, thoughtful, intelligent and fun. That is the environment we create at West Norwood Therapies which gives the energy that runs through treatments and classes. After celebrating us as a collective we want to celebrate us as individuals - so over the next few weeks we'll be running social media posts along the theme 'we love working with...' describing one another as colleagues. We hope you enjoy getting to know us better!

Our new reflexologist (and yoga teacher, reiki and tibetan sound bowl practitioner) Laura Devonshire introduces this fabulous treatment and shares the benefits that can be gained from treatment.




Reflexology is a natural, holistic and non-invasive therapy that helps the body engage its own self-healing processes on a physical, emotional and energetic level.


It works on the premise that our feet and hands are a microcosm of the body with all organs, glands and structures mapping to corresponding reflex points through a system of zones and energy channels, addressing all the main systems of the body.


It is estimated that 75% of illnesses are caused by stress. Reflexology works to rebalance the body and mind, encouraging a state of relaxation to ease stress and anxiety, releasing toxicity held in the internal organs and muscles.


On a physical level Reflexology alleviates joint and muscular pain. It improves circulation, increases lymphatic drainage helping with detoxification. It brings balance into the physiological systems and structures, stimulating hypo-active and sluggish areas and calming hyperactive, over-productive parts.

On an emotional and energetic level Reflexology eases tension, allows for clearer thinking, improved concentration, relief of fear and frustration and encourages a greater sense of wellbeing and wholeness.


Reflexology provides great fertility support with preconception helping to bring the body and hormones into a state of equilibrium, encouraging and regulating menstrual cycles, boosting blood circulation to the reproductive areas and reducing stress levels helping to prepare both physically and emotionally.

Pregnancy Reflexology supports mum –to-be through the many significant changes her body is constantly responding and adapting as baby grows. Pregnancy Reflexology alleviates the physical aches and pains, sooth digestive discomforts, aids energy levels and provides much needed relaxation.


The following is an extensive but not complete, list of conditions and symptoms Reflexology can help with: * acne *anxiety *arthritis *asthma *back pain *digestive problems fibromyalgia *gynecological problems *headaches and migraines *hormonal disturbances *insomnia *kidney/urinary problems *low energy *muscular and joint pain *PMS *prostate problems *sciatica *skin conditions.


There may be times when it is not appropriate to use Reflexology; if you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Laura.
