l have been working in complementary therapy since 1997, initially as a Healer and then after training with the International Institute of Reflexology (IIR) I qualified in 2005 as a Reflexologist.
It is then that I started working for the Cavendish Centre for Cancer Care, based at the palliative care unit at the Northern General Hospital in Shefﬁeld. I treated staff on that unit as well as the patients, then at a later stage this was extended to include treating patients on the Cystic Fibrosis Unit at the same hospital.
I continue to work both as a Reflexologist and an Energy Therapist (Healer) at the Cavendish Centre for Cancer Care. I work with clients and carers of those people with cancer and life limiting conditions such as Motor Neurone Disease as well as running my own private practice.
Stress is a huge part of everyone's lives and ﬁnding time for yourself is harder than ever. Stress can have a very detrimental effect on your health and Reﬂexology or Healing is a great way of giving yourself an hour of "me time".
"I suffer from a number of complex chronic diseases for which I receive an extensive number of conventional medical therapies. While these are necessary and indeed life saving they do not provide holistic all round care. I have therefore explored a number of more holistic “complementary” therapies to optimise my health and well being as much as possible. Two of which I have found particularly helpful are mindfulness and healing.
l have to admit that despite welcoming the opportunity to have therapy with healing as a retired paediatric consultant I had some reservations about whether it would really be effective. However, therapy from Lou has unquestionably persuaded me of its usefulness.
She has a gentle, calming presence as soon as you meet her even before she begins therapy. During therapy the sensation from her hands is amazing; a combination of warmth and tingling which is very comforting. She is even able to produce this effect when her hands are not actually touching me as I discovered when l commented on how nice her hands felt on my head only to discover they were actually about 12 inches above my head!
She is very in tune with both my body and psychology and my sessions with her always leave me feeling generally re-energised and with improved well-being. This is reﬂected by the fact that I have now been seeing Lou for 2-3 years. I would highly recommend Lou to anyone considering healing therapy and will certainly continue to see her myself."

"Having had two sessions of Healing with Lou, I have started to feel relief from my balance problem, which I thought could not be helped. Such a relief for me and I hope to continue on this pathway, many thanks"

"Amazing. l suffer with sciatica and occasional bouts of IBS. Seeing Lou regularly has made such a difference to my life, keeping everything under control. Now I simply couldn't manage without my treatments with Lou and look forward to them. I highly recommend you try a treatment if you are suffering with anything! Don’t suffer in silence. Go to Lou."

"Highly recommended. Couldn't manage my IBS without the wonderful therapy that Louise gives me. Every fortnight I need her calming hands to help me control my unruly gut and it's been working this way for the past couple of years now! l can highly recommend her services as efficient and very effective."

"You'll wish you did it ages ago… A demanding full time job on my feet all day means I have to be on top form... and regular visits to Lou keep my aches snd strains under control... and if theres nothing wrong a session is just the perfect way to relax... What's not to like... go see Lou you'll wish you'd done it ages ago."

"A Different Person. Diagnosed with colitis few years ago and after trying different foods and remedies and feeling as though my life was on hold, decided to try Heals and Toes. Lou was recommended as being very knowledgeable about reflexology and what she doesn't know isn't worth knowing. After the initial assessment things started to improve, getting my life back on track and feeling well, she makes you feel relaxed in a calming atmosphere with good conversation. Lou is great and I would recommend her to anyone."

"I've had reflexology and healing treatments from Lou for about 6 years. I have also seen her give treatments to people who have serious illnesses during the same time period.
Lou is a very caring person and has a calm relaxed manner which puts you at ease. She is sensitive and knows when a friendly chat is helpful and when to continue quietly with treatment. When working with seriously ill people she works alongside traditional medical treatment to help with symptom control.
During reflexology treatments I ususally find as Lou works, several areas on my feet are more sensitive. When I ask her which areas of the body they relate to, she tells me and it is always something that has been causing me difficulty but I haven't told her about it. The reflexology treatments finish with a foot massage with a choice of foot creams. Bliss!
During and after healing treatments I can feel my energy improving and feel much better after sessions.
I would highly recommend this practitioner."
