Marion Reed

I bought my first Reflexology book in 1989 and fascinated by the technique, it’s origins and associated philosophies, I started to practice and immediately noticed the benefits for myself, my family and my friends. I used these skills to ensure the well-being of those closest to me and promoted positive mental attitudes to relieve stress, anxiety and the associated symptoms.

My desire to continue to offer a caring and supportive role to others led me to enroll on a professional Reflexology training course immediately following my retirement from a 30-year career in policing.

Originally setting up Sole & Heal in Essex as a luxury salon-based therapy, I also provided mobile services to London and surrounding areas. I have enjoyed volunteering Reflexology sessions through local charitable organisations, specifically gaining additional knowledge and practice in treating older clients and those with multiple and complex medical conditions. It has been rewarding to enable those less likely or able to access complimentary therapy to experience the benefits. In 2019 I relocated to Hampshire where I now offer the convenience of a fully mobile service to more rural communities.
