About Michele Stevens MAR, CNHC Registered for Reflexology, Colour Mirror Practitioner
For many years I always had an interest in complementary therapies and over the years have received Reflexology, Physiotherapy, Chiropractic and beauty treatments. I wanted to know and learn more about these therapies, but never quite got around to doing anything about it.
As happens life got in the way, full time job in the civil service, which involved travelling throughout the UK and a growing family, it was never more than a passing thought 'I'll look into that a bit more when i have the time' .
In 2009, with the help of a rather violent sneeze, the discs in my lower back decided to explode, (the technical term is herniated discs). I was left in the most excruciating pain. I never knew just how painful breathing, walking, sitting, standing, lying down could be.
For the following months I was caught in an endless cycle of strong painkillers, physio, hospital appts, steroid injections and eventually
I had an operation , a microdiscectomy. The operation was a success, in so far as I could now stand up, however the months of the discs pressing on the nerves had left me in a lot of pain and it took me many years to recover.
But I did recover and I now have a very active life, especially when chasing round after my 3 grandchildren.
Years of constant pain, juggling family, working full time, dealing with the stress and strains of travel and corporate office life and not looking after myself properly had taken its toll on me.
I was tired all the time and everything I did became such an effort. I was worn down and had lost my confidence. But I was very good at telling everyone ’Im ok’.
Then I was told I was at risk of Redundancy. Looking back what a fantastic thing to have been told, this was a turning point for me.
I gave myself a talking to and decided to study Reflexology. I trained at the London School of Reflexology and was taught by the Principle Louise Keet, who is also author of the bestsellers the Reflexology Bible and Hand Reflexology.

I loved it, yes it was hard work and I questioned my sanity at studying while working full time but I did it and I am proud to say I qualified from the London School of Reflexology.
It has been one of the best decisions (outside of my children and grandchildren) that I made.
Reflexology and Continuing training, studying and gaining knowledge into the alternative therapies to enable healing of the body inside and out, has personally helped me to cope with the many stresses and strains of juggling family, divorce, health issues, working full-time and being made redundant.
My experiences allows me to bring an understanding and empathy to my treatments for the greater benefit of my clients, as I have been there. My journey has allowed me the time to heal and relax and be the best I can be every day.
I believe that your journey and life experiences are unique and special, as are you.
My question to you is .... How can I help you today? Contact me with your name and telephone number and let me help you get back to feeling like you again.
Look forward to seeing you soon.
