Liz Bailey R.G.N M.A.R is currenlty based at our Halstead clinic on a Wednesday.

As a former nurse, Liz believes a philosophy for life is to be kind to yourself and aim for a balanced work/relaxation lifestyle. Reflexology may well help to achieve this.


Reflexology is an ancient art, derived in Egypt and has been used in China for 5,000 years.

During a treatment, pressure is applied to specific areas on the feet, using a unique method of using the thumbs and fingers. It may help stimulate circulation, which in turn may improve oxygen reaching vital organs and thereby helping encourage the body's own natural healing processes. Reflexology may help relieve stress and tension and the treatment is generally very relaxing.


Treatment lasts for an hour and the cost is £28 with concessions for senior citizens £25 and Children (treatment time will be less, usually no more than half an hour) £15.

Treatments can be booked at reception or by calling the clinic on 01787 478789. If you wish to discuss your complaint with the reflexologist, please call 01787 477431.

Pilates is a low impact, body friendly, training system which focus on core strength and mobility.  Pilates can help with functional movements, balancing the body and general well being, and particularly beneficial during rehabilitation.  Other benefits include weight loss, muscle toning, improved posture and flexibility.


Who is Pilates for? Everyone, regardless of fitness level. For example, anyone wishing to improve their total fitness, posture and appearance, or professional sportspersons using advanced conditioning programmes to enhance performance. First time exercisers might find it a gentle introduction to exercise, whilst the keen sportsman may find it a useful cross-training method and a means to stay injury free. Its controlled approach means that it gives much longer-term results, and is especially recommended for those with back problems.


We have Pilates classes available at all three clinics, each with a purpose built studio and friendly, expereinced instructors. A maximum group size of 10 ensures each person is able to receive individual instruction and get the most out of the classes.


For further information on class times and to book a place please contact the Halstead clinic on 01787 478789.
