Clinical Reflexologist, Claire Hay
Claire was taught at the London Reflexology Academy, graduating with a Level 5 Centralia Reflexology Mastership and has since been practising and living in Bristol. She is a full member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT). Claire is able to provide clinical treatments, uniquely tailored to each client, by assessing their overall physical and emotional health and lifestyle. This holistic approach aspires to determine the root of the client’s concern, whilst addressing the immediate effects it may be having on their body.
Her reflexology treatments may help with a wide range of health conditions, such as stress and anxiety or digestive issues. Claire is also trained in fertility and pregnancy reflexology, which can help clients in various ways from conception to postpartum.
Since qualifying she has also trained in several styles of Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT) with Lynne Booth. Her knowledge of VRT may help clients with musculoskeletal or mobility issues, as well as helping to boost the effects of the classic reflexology treatment.
Claire was inspired to become a practitioner after personally experiencing the benefits of reflexology and she hopes to pass on similar positive experiences to others!
Initial treatments include a consultation process in order to deliver a comprehensive, investigative and relaxing reflexology treatment, carefully tuned to the client’s needs.
Claire has also trained in massage at the Cotswold Academy in Cirencester. Her qualifications include ITEC Level 3 Massage Diploma and Deep Tissue Massage training. As with her reflexology treatments, the consultation process can enable her to adapt the massage to each individual to gain the maximum benefits for the client, leaving you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
Her massage treatments may combine different techniques from holistic massage and deep tissue massage depending on the client’s needs and depending if they are wanting a stronger therapy or a lighter, more relaxing approach.
There will be a quick consultation prior to the treatment in order for Claire to assess your physical health and wellbeing and adjust the massage accordingly.
I suffer from a stiff neck and shoulder pain mainly because of years sitting at a computer and not moving my body as it’s meant to move; also there is an age issue here (58). Dave has eased the stiffness and taken some of the pain away already after only 2 sessions. He is attentive and helps me to feel comfortable and at ease with the process.
I have been visiting Claire regularly for 4 years now to help me effectively manage my Fibromyalgia Syndrome. My pain levels and muscle soreness have been reduced, and my energy levels significantly increased. I have also experienced debilitating episodes of Hemiplegic Migraine but with Claire's gentle 'needling' technique I am very happy to say I have been clear for 3 years now. Claire is a true professional and takes time needed to get to know her patients as individuals thus treating them accordingly.
I visited Claire with severe crippling back pain being 18 weeks pregnant. I found my treatment very professional, time was taken to talk, the cause of my problem was identified and sorted. Friendly, helpful and a very calm environment. Never rushed and consideration for baby and myself at all times. So glad to have someone I can call on if it happens again.
Dave's skill in massage therapy, pin-pointing the exact area of muscular pain and tension in my leg, resulted in blessed relief, and after a few treatments I was running again. He is friendly and fun, taking one's mind off the pain as he works......and I didn't even need to take the car out of the drive. A great service!
I initially sought Chiropractic care over 15 years ago for back and neck pain and Claire has very successfully treated me for the last 8 years. I can confidently say that she is by far the best Chiropractor that I have ever seen. My back used to regularly sieze or go into spasms but this rarely happens now and I believe it is because of the excellent treatment that I receive from Claire. She is gentle and effective, and I have no hesitation in recommending her treatment.
I work at a computer and often suffer from neck and back discomfort. Having treatment right here in my office was the ultimate in convenience, even luxury, and several colleagues have now signed up for Dave's time-efficient and effective therapy.
