Rupert French (reflexologist)
Rupert is a qualified reflexologist, specialising in both Foot and Face Reflexology. He also holds a diploma in Nutrition. Rupert has studied a number of different reflexology techniques, which he combines to suit the individual needs of his clients and maximise the effectiveness of the treatments.
His research led him to Face Reflexology, a new generation complimentary therapy that draws on many influences; it is wonderfully relaxing and helps to alleviate a wide range of stress-related conditions. Combining feeling good with looking good, it stimulates the nerve muscles and tissues of the face, which results in a softer glowing complexion. Rupert also offers a Japanese Facial Lifting treatment, which is designed to help rejuvenate the face and can be experienced as a one-off or a course of treatments. Rupert is a member of the Association Of Reflexologists - AOR
