Reflexology is an ancient Eastern healing tradition based on the principle that all parts of our body are connected by energy pathways which end in the hands, feet and head. A reflexology treatment uses pressure massage on specific areas of the feet to stimulate healing in the corresponding organs, glands and structures. This releases areas of tension and helps energy to flow more freely throughout your body.
Helen began her training at Shepton Mallet Adult Learning in 2002 and completed her training in 2006. Helen has always had an interest in holistic therapy and thinks that this probably started when she was a child mixing flower petals in her parent’s garden!
Helen is experienced in working with people with cancer and as well as working at Neal’s Yard Remedies Helen is also a member of the therapy team and RNID Poolemead in Bath providing massage and aromatherapy treatments for deaf and deaf/blind adults with additional learning difficulties.
Helen finds all areas of her work extremely rewarding and – as she puts it – finally found out what she wanted to do when she left school 20 years after she had left!

I gained a special interest in holistic health, wellness and natural beauty on my travels around the world. Having worked in the fashion industry for many years and still modelling well into my fifties -I have had a vested interest in how to look and feel ones best totally naturally!
I am trained in Reiki, Cranio-Sacral Therapy , Reflexologist AOR and specialise in maternity treatments often combining aromatherapy, massage and reflexology. Rejuvanessence and Facial Energy Release- face therapy. Qualified in Advanced Massage in 1990 and became an IFPA registered Aromatherapist and Rejuvanessence® practitioner in 1991.
Please take a look at my own website carolinejosling.com
My treatments often draw on a mélange of all these techniques with a strong holistic lean; I offer advice on how to optimise health naturally with life- style and supplements suggestions whilst complementing any conventional medical treatment. In a busy and often stressful world I believe that treatments can restore and revive the person, as well as offering support whilst going through a stressful time, recovering from illness, low energy or grief. Treatments can help to release pent up stress and tension to help you regain balance.
I have run many practitioner trainings since 2004 /2013 for The International Institute of Rejuvanessence and now run practitioner trainings in Facial Energy Release-face therapy.
Facial Energy Release – face therapy
This is a wonderful life-enhancing therapy that soothes away the ravages of modern life. Unique fingertip holistic therapy also known as “Angels Touch”.
It includes gentle, very precise massage of the 91 muscles of the face, neck skull and shoulders whilst also working on facial connective tissue making it more elastic and flexible.
As well as looking younger, clients often say that they feel invigorated, rejuvenated, healing. Blissfully hypnotic touch works on lymph, acupuncture points releasing blocked energy and tension. A course of Facial Energy Release comprises of six sessions of 80 minutes each working on different groups of connective tissue and muscles.

Since I first trained as a holistic therapist, I have constantly updated my skill and knowledge. Now I offer a wide range of holistic treatments and, depending on your needs or conditions I carefully choose your treatment plan with you. All my treatments are tailor made to ensure you have a truly holistic experience.
I use combinations of different techniques for my massages which allow me to range from a firm pressure to a delicate touch, which helps to release the tension seated in any depth of tissue.
I have an extensive knowledge of aromatherapy and use this for my treatments. Aromatherapy and holistic treatments work wonderfully together and I take pride in this combination which helps not only reduce physical problems but may also bring emotional relief as well. My treatments are always based on ‘de-stressing’ and you can feel both physically and mentally lighter after my treatment.
Maternity and gynaecological care also feature heavily in my range of treatments. My extensive training in this field brings a deep understanding of the needs of women and enables me to extend my treatments to help with hormonal, physical and emotional changes for any stages of women’s life.

Anna’s pasion for complementary therapies started when she received a short reflexology session, which helped to release pain that she had. She decided to study Reflexology to be in the position to support others. She qualified as a Reflexologist in 2008 and went on to gain her Diploma in Holistic Masage two years later.
She has been constantly upgrading her knowledge and skills by attending reflexology, massage and healing workshops.
She has been supporting different types of people, specializing in dealing with stress and stress related conditions and also supporting people that face emotional challenges. She tailors each session according to client’s needs, adjusting the pressure and using her nurturing touch to encourage the state of relaxation and supporting the release of blockages and tension.
