"Hello ~ I'm Hannah.

I live in the Peak District and love caring for people who are residents/visitors of the Peak District too! I offer Reflexology, Solestry, Massage, Aromatherapy, Indian Head treatments and facials from a beautiful therapy room in Birchover, near Bakewell. I run a mobile service to provide Reflexology and Massage in Bakewell, Darley Dale, Matlock and the surrounding Derbyshire villages. You can also book me for holiday treatments. Why not have Reflexology, Massage or Facial treatments in your holiday cottage? Whether you choose the therapy room, a home visit or a holiday cottage treatment; I look forward to seeing you soon!"

The aim of reflexology is to correct 3 negative factors involved in the disease process. These being tension, congestion and inflammation. The most widely reported benefits of regular treatments include:

  • Improved blood circulation & lymphatic function
  • Elimination of toxins & body cleansing
  • Improved sleeping patterns
  • Pain relief
  • Reduced feelings of stress & anxiety
  • Balanced mood
  • Increased energy & vitality

Why have Reflexology?

Some people have treatments purely as a preventive measure; to keep their immune system on track. My clients use reflexology to relieve stress, help with headaches & migraines, improve their quality of sleep, ease respiratory issues and to alleviate symptoms of digestive problems. Regular reflexology sessions are also popular with peri-menopausal clients. The sessions seem to help balance their hormones, relieve anxiety and combat fatigue.

Solestry or ‘foot reading’ is the art of reading emotions and personality through the nuances in the feet. It can be used for therapy or for entertainment purposes. I do foot reading for both!

Foot Reading for Therapy

Readings can provide valuable insights into your psyche. By looking at the clues, I can help you to address any issues you may be facing. The aim is to help you find your own answers. In doing the ‘sole’ searching, you will hopefully feel empowered to move forward with your life. The cost of a private foot-reading session is £30.

Foot Reading Parties

What do your feet reveal about you? Are you bossy? Do you want more freedom? Are you doing too much for others? Do you procrastinate? Are you a hoarder? There are always clues! Readings take place privately, in a separate room. But the real fun starts when you compare notes afterwards. Get ready to see each other in a different light!

I can offer foot reading parties for small groups. You supply the drinks and I will read the feet! The cost of a foot reading party is £240 (for a maximum of 8 people). The parties work well for birthdays, Hen do’s, family get togethers and corporate team building events.


I offer Swedish massage as a deeply relaxing, holistic treatment. Swedish massage is the foundation of many modern massage styles. The techniques have posh names such as effleurage and petrissage. For more stimulation I use tapotement (hacking, pummelling and pounding) as well as neuro-muscular pressures. These are similar to deep tissue massage methods. The techniques allow for the release of endorphins; the body’s natural painkillers. Through physical touch the body also releases a hormone called Oxytocin. This gives you the feeling of being nurtured and why massage results in a sense of calm and wellbeing.

Look what massage can do for your mind, body and soul:

Mood: the brain is stimulated to release hormones which contribute to feelings of happiness

Stress relief: the parasympathetic nervous system releases hormones to promote calmness

Relaxation: lowers the heart rate and relaxes the physical body

Lymphatic system: can drain any swelling, especially after injury. Also assists the immune system to fight against infections

Flexibility: more blood flow around the muscles and temperature rises help elasticity, allowing increased range of movement

Pain relief: from reduced tension & improved muscle tone. Joints become more flexible too!

Aromatherapy is thought to stimulate smell receptors in the nose. Messages are then sent to the limbic system via the nervous system. The limbic system is the part of the brain responsible for controlling your emotions.

The aroma part of the therapy uses essential oils from all around the world. They can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin. The quickest way through skin is by massage. As chemicals from the oils enter the bloodstream, they target certain areas. Studies show that a variety of oils can help to relive stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Aromatherapy can also result in better quality sleep, pain relief, more energy and a strengthened immune system.
