Liz Redfern, Reflexology

Liz is a fully qualified reflexologist and a member of the Association of Reflexologists. She trained at the York School of Holistic Therapies. Her interest in reflexology stems from treatments she received while undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. These provided her with an oasis of calm during a deeply frightening, worrying and stressful time. She went on to study and practice reflexology so that she could share these benefits with people who find themselves in similar situations and coping with other physical or emotional challenges.
