Caroline Sargent MAR, clinical reflexologist
I trained as a clinical reflexologist with Hagar Basis at the Reflexology Academy in London. I am qualified to Level 5 which is currently the highest level available in the UK. I am passionate about the benefits of reflexology and regularly attend training courses and events to increase my skills and knowledge.
I am a firm believer in a holistic lifestyle for good health; living simply, eating well, getting some exercise, especially walking and getting in touch with nature.
Hippocrates said the natural healing force in each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.
I was inspired to learn reflexology because of the benefits I experienced myself during a difficult period of my life. I was diagnosed with under active thyroid but I just didn’t seem to get well on the medication. I experienced fatigue, anxiety, depression and “brain fog”. I decided to give reflexology a go and was amazed at the benefits I experienced. Reflexology is a truly holistic treatment, it isn’t a quick fix but I wouldn’t be without it and I still have regular treatments.
I have a particular interest in helping people with chronic health issues such as thyroid illness and people with disabilities. I have been lucky to have worked for many years for Mencap and I have experience of people with learning disabilities and autism. I have a current DBS check and regularly attend First Aid at work courses.
In 2015 I trained with the renowned german reflexology teacher Hanne Marquardt.
In 2016 I trained with Lorraine Senior in Functional Reflex Therapy, a lovely relaxing treatment for adults and children with learning disabilities.
In 2017 I trained with Tony Porter, who has inspired and trained many reflexologists.
In 2018 I trained with the Middlesex School of Complementary Medicine and learned the lovely art of Dien Cham facial reflexology.
In 2018 I trained with Dr Manzanares who has done some pioneering work to investigate the science behind reflexology. This included a one day seminar on chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
