During my treatments, cotton towels and flannels are used rather than disposable wipes. The treatment oils and balms used are organic and in recyclable packaging. The balms I use are from Flying Wild, a small rural business supporting bees. They plant one tree with every order placed, are 100% plastic free and produce 100% organic, handmade products. You will also find Tropic hand wash and lotion in the toilet: naturally antibacterial, ph balanced and free from harmful chemicals, from a certified carbon neutral company and 100% cruelty free brand. After a lot of searching, I have also managed to source 100% compostable bendy straws, so clients can drink water whilst laying back in the treatment chair!
I try to reuse and recycle as much as possible, limiting what goes into landfill. I am mindful of purchasing items made from recycled material or that can be recycled. Such as paper, pens, wooden sticks and using rechargeable batteries in my candles. Reducing printing where possible, such as emailing invoices to clients that need them. These things are only small, but when added together, they can make a real difference. There is always more that can be done and I will keep learning and implementing changes wherever possible.
I am a mum of 2 young boys and prior to becoming a reflexologist I worked within health and education. I am a former Midwife and have also worked in adult education and schools with children with additional needs. As a Midwife, I became frustrated with hospital policies, time limits and staffing, all of which prevented me from being able to give the quality of care and time that I wished to give to families at this precious time in their lives. Working with children and adults in a variety of roles, has helped develop my knowledge and skills in working with people from all walks of life.
