My name is Gillian MacDowall and I am a fully qualified Reflexologist. I am trained in Light Touch Reflexology and I am passionate about the impact it can have on your whole being. The incredible power of touch to make you completely switch off , recharge and balance the body, mind.
Reflexology is a gentle way to feel completely soothed, relaxed and rebalanced. This can have a powerful effect on your overall health and well-being by aiding relaxation, improving your mood, encouraging restful sleep and helping to relieve tension in your body whilst stimulating the body's self healing mechanism.
If you are feeling a bit at sea or out of kilter reflexology can help to restore the bodies natural balance.
I work from Tostock which is 6 miles east of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. Tostock is easily accessable on the A14 from Stowmarket and the surrounding villages of Norton, Ixworth, Thurston, Woolpit, Elmswell and of course Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket. I am fully qualified and a member of the Association of Reflexologists (MAR).
If you are looking for a soothing and rebalancing holistic therapy, then please feel free to contact me, as I may very well be able to help you. I have a peaceful treatment space in the country which offers a tranquil setting to enable you to receive a calm and relaxing treatment.
Soothing, Stimulating & Seriously Relaxing
It is thought that reflexology works by gently stimulating reflex points in the feet by doing this the body is encouraged to eliminate toxins and self heal. Light touch reflexology is very soothing and generally leads to a feeling of complete and, in most cases, profound relaxation which allows the body to reset, rebalance and heal itself. As a Reflexologist I treat the whole being to help restore the whole being.
Whilst no Reflexologist can claim to diagnose or cure specific health conditions there are obvious benefits to be gained from being in a very relaxed state. Here are some examples of the types of conditions that may benefit from this type of therapy:
.....various physical and emotional conditions including reducing stress, tension & anxiety.....relieving headaches & migraine.....easing back, shoulder and neck pain.....alleviating digestive problem.....helping sleep difficulties.....fatigue.....relieving conditions that cause chronic pain & discomfort.....benefits a range of hormone related issues including hormonal inbalance, fertility issues and easing the symptoms of the menopause.....women and men's health including prostate conditions & more.....it can be very beneficial for relieving exam stress and bringing calm to anxious teenagers. Reflexology can also be of benefit to people undergoing treatment for a range of illness and autoimmune conditions.
Reflexology is, generally, suitable for all age groups, babies, teenagers, older folks and everyone in between.
Here's What My Clients Think.....
Gillian has been giving me reflexology treatments regularly, for almost two years. She is a lovely lady with very gentle hands and great sensitivity, generally identifying problems just by looking at my feet. Her treatments are extremely relaxing and effective therefore I strongly recommend her.

Fabulous, stress busting, calming reflexology treatments! I have really enjoyed my treatments - Gillian is confident and knowledgable, putting me completely at ease. Extraordinary insight into my wellbeing through my feet and hints and tips on relaxation to take home with you too. Highly recommended. And by the way it doesn't tickle!

Gillian is very professional and offers an excellent service in a well thought out treatment room. The environment is relaxing and calming and Gillian has wonderful empathetic approach, is skilled and knowledgeable. The relaxing effects of the session were extremely beneficial. I'll be back soon! I would strongly recommend her as a Reflexologist.

When I arrived for my consultation with Gillian she met me and made me feel welcome and relaxed. After showing me to her treatment room she took a brief history and discussed a few things with me. Although I went with no specific problem in mind I felt incredibly relaxed, and at several points could feel myself drifting off. Gillian is very knowledgeable and you feel you are in very capable hands. I can't recommend her highly enough for a Reflexology session or even if you just need to relax. She is warm, friendly, professional and gave great advice.

Even a short session can promote a feeling of well-being . A taster session is £15 and will give you many of the benefits of a full treatment.
