welcome and thank you for visiting my small corner of the
name is Karen Hansford and I operate from my home in Shirley,
I began to take an interest
in complementary therapies in 1991. My husband died suddenly
and a friend persuaded me to have a massage which I reluctantly
booked. All I can say is that I got off the couch feeling
totally different and realised that if it can help me, it
can help others. Two weeks later I was on the course.
I studied at Renbardou, one
of the first colleges teaching complementary therapies in
the UK, under Renee Tanner, now the Chairperson for the International
Federation of Reflexology. All courses were set by the International
Examinations Board and once completed I was registered with
the I.F.R. and the top governing bodies for complementary
therapies under the BCMA. I then went on to do a City and
Guilds teaching certificate at Croydon College and taught
Reflexology at Morley College in London and at Renbardou.
I made the decision to give
up my full time job as a p.a. at Citibank in 1994 and began
to practice from home. Since then, through word of mouth,
talks in the community and magazine articles, I have built
up a successful practice and have never looked back.
treatments are completely confidential and carried out in
private, comfortable surroundings. Many disorders can be relieved
by reflexology and aromatherapy and it promotes total relaxation and well being. Why not treat yourself and take time out from your busy schedule to unwind and pamper yourself.
first consultation for most treatments is essential and is
completely free of charge and without any obligation. If
you are planning to go on holiday, check out the Beauty
Treatments to make sure you look your best on the beach.
vouchers are also available in amounts for every pocket - or perhaps to suit a particular treatment.
