My name is Sheila Lindop and my practice is based in Farnborough, Hampshire GU14 8BP, but close to Camberley, Aldershot, Fleet and surrounding areas. I am a fully qualified and insured Reflexologist, Bodytalker and Counsellor (although I do not now offer Counselling as a therapy). I have worked as a Reflexologist since 2005 and am registered as a Fellow member of the Association of Reflexologists.
I have also done post qualification studies in Maternity (pregnancy) Reflexology and courses on fertility issues incorporating Precision Linking. I continue to attend training days to update my knowledge and skills, including Reflexology Lymph Drainage, which is gaining a reputation in helping those who have breast cancer, but it is also very helpful for lots of other conditions as well.
I have done a course on Mindful Reflexology and had a number of clients suffering with anxiety, depression and insomnia, this protocol has been successful in helping to support lessening the anxiety and stress and depression and helping them to sleep better.
Very recently I have attended an Aromareflex course and can now blend some oils (from a carefully selected range) for your individual use in the treatment and take a small pot home with you. Please let me know in advance if this would be of interest to you. There is a small extra charge.
Reflexology continues to be a developing therapy and there are always lots of new things to learn which can then be used to enhance my treatments.
I love doing reflexology and part of my passion for doing it is because it has helped me on my health and well-being journey over many years. Working with all the different aspects and range of clients is fascinating but in addition I have a special interest in pregnancy and pre-conception, sub-fertility, preparation for IVF. I would like to encourage both partners to come for reflexology, as I think the men sometimes get forgotten and it is important for both partners to be as healthy as possible.
I work with a whole range of clients and am not limited to fertility etc. The reflexology page gives you lots more information, so please take a look.
I am excited to be able to offer Bodytalk (www.bodytalksystem.com) and am a Certified Bodytalk Practitioner. This is a relatively new ground breaking therapy and I have had some good results so far. The human body is very clever the way it keeps us balanced and harmonised so we can live our lives but sometimes this can go awry for various reasons. How amazing is it that the body can tell us what needs to be rebalanced, synchronised or where there is a communication breakdown and the priority it needs to be dealt with. Lots more information on the Bodytalk page. You can always try a taster session, give me a call if you would like to give it a try. Or why not try a combined Reflexology and Bodytalk session, this usually last about an hour and a half. Both Therapies complement each other to give an extra special treatment.
I also offer hot stone reflexology, a great addition to your Reflexology treatment in the cold winter period, or at any other time too. As time needs to be allowed to heat the stones prior notice is required, so let me know when you book your appointment if you would like to incorporate hot stone reflexology. There is an additional £5 charge.
With lockdown easing but the infection rates continuing to rise, in order to keep everyone safe I will be continuing with all the precautions I already have in place including face masks. I am still offering appointments on Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 11.30 am and last appointment 4.30 pm. Appointments will be spaced out to allow for cleaning etc. between clients. I will also offer an occasional Friday afternoon by request. If these times are difficult for you please message me and I will see what I can do. Please read the Corona virus information at the bottom of the page.
Gaia Holistic Therapies is located in Farnborough, close to the M3, A331 and A325, and is easily accessible from Farnborough, Farnham, Fleet, Frimley, Mytchett, Ash, Camberley, Yateley, Sandhurst and Aldershot.
Most of my clients find the easiest way to contact me is to email me at [email protected] for an appointment or you can telephone me, on 07810 634712 (mobile) or on the landline 01252 515814 for an appointment. I am always very happy to discuss any of the treatments before you book. If I'm not available to take your call personally please leave me a message and I will return your call as soon as possible.
Payment by bank transfer is preferred but if you want to pay in cash please put the correct amount in an envelope, which will then be opened after 72 hours.
The Association of Reflexologists have been working very hard on guidance for safe practice when we start to offer appointments again. There will be changes in the way that all Reflexologist’s work face to face. All clients (unless exempt) will need to wear a face covering or mask and I will also be wearing a mask. It will also be necessary to do a telephone risk assessment the day before your appointment, this is a mandatory condition of my insurance. If you have had a Covid jab you should wait for a week before having reflexology. Full details of the new way of working will be sent to you prior to your appointment.
Whilst I normally have a 24 hour cancellation policy, I am dropping this for the time being because I would much rather you re-arranged your appointment if you or one of your family are feeling unwell, Covid related or not. The important thing is to try and make it as safe as possible for everyone. The same would apply to me and my household.
I am still offering Bodytalk sessions which can be done as a distant session if you do not wish to come out.
Gift vouchers are also still available and will have a two year expiry date.
It has been great to be back and able to offer reflexology and to see my clients and meet some new ones. During lockdown I have done a couple of online courses, one called Round about Digestion, and also Round about Respiration by the excellent Danish Reflexology tutors, Peter Lund Franson and Dorthe Krogsgaard. I am also planning to do a course on headaches and migraines. I have also done a course on the Release points by Chi Medics and look forward to incorporating what I have learnt into my sessions, where appropriate. So if you would like to try reflexology then do contact me.
