You got Sole
Get your toes out, there's a new reflexologist in town! Muddy wiggles the tootsies for Sole Wellbeing in Haddenham, Bucks
MUDDY TRIES/ SOLE WELLBEING REFLEXOLOGY, HADDENHAM
If you’re familiar with Midsomer Murders and Rosemary & Thyme, you’ll probably know Haddenham – a large village with super-quaint duck pond, 12th century church and a whole load of heritage wychert walls. There’s no complementary therapy centre in the village, so if you’re looking for reflexology or reiki, you’ll no-doubt be calling up Deborah Perfect who runs Sole Wellbeing in a treatment room at her home down Church Way.
You either like having treatments in your therapist’s house or you don’t, but personally I’m a fan – to me it feels very relaxing for both parties, plus if money is an issue (er, yeah) it’s usually a bit less expensive. Deborah’s treatment room is attractive, tidy and calming and set apart from the rest of the house so there’s no sense of discomfort at being in someone else’s private space.
I absolutely love reflexology and have had the treatment aplenty in the past, but I haven’t had a treatment like this one. It felt very gentle, almost stroking sometimes, less of the ‘popping’ and grinding across toes and pads, so if you find reflexology a bit uncomfortable this might be a good option for you. I absolutely loved the treatment, and definitely dropped off once or twice, waking up with that kind of jerky snort that tells me I’d probably embarrassed myself along the way. The treatment is 1 hour, though you can also add an organic foot spa if you want to stretch out the pleasure further.
Unusually for a reflexologist, Deborah is a full qualified and registered (and still practising) nurse, so she has the caring gene in spades – she’s absolutely charming and lovely and it will take a nano-second for you to relax. She’s also a member of the Association of Reflexologists, and is registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. At the moment she is offers treatments on Mondays, Tuesdays & alternate Saturdays and she can also do home visits in the evening locally.
1 hour reflexology £29.50. Organic foot spa treatment £60 (75 minutes). Reiki £45 for 60 mins, or £30 for 30 minutes. Home visits for reflexology £40.
