My name is Karine Prescott. I have been practising Reflexology for over 15 years in Bristol and I simply love it! I trained at the Bristol School of Holistic Therapies and was awarded a Distinction for both my Diploma in Reflexology and my Certificate in Anatomy and Physiology. I am qualified and experienced - please go to testimonials to read the views of my clients.
I have a particular interest in treating clients suffering from stress and I attended numerous further training courses such as "Stress, Wellbeing and Reflexology", "Pain and Mobility Master Class Vertical Reflex Therapy", "Precision Reflexology", "Maternity Reflexology", "Hot Stone Reflexology", "Aromareflex" and Facial Reflexology , as I am always keen to learn new techniques. I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists (AoR).
For many years I was the on-site Reflexologist at Hewlett-Packard in Filton (Bristol), so I am also experienced in providing treatment within the workplace.
In addition to the above, I have been awarded Indian Head Massage and Reiki qualifications.
Current Protocol in place
I have always taken hygiene seriously but in light of the Covid19 pandemic, the below strict protocol will remain in place until further notice to ensure that you can relax when attending your treatments. I know that a lot of people are currently anxious, so if you have any questions or worries, please do not hesitate to contact me - I will happily listen to your concern and answer any questions you may have.
-My treatment room is thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and ventilated between every treatment;
-We will both wear facial coverings. I will already be wearing my mask when greeting you and will keep it during the whole treatment. Please bring your own facial covering, which you will also need to wear until you have left the treatment room;
-I will offer you hand sanitiser at the door before showing you to the treatment room – and then you will just need to sit back and relax!
-There will be at least a half an hour gap between every treatment to allow for all surfaces (including treatment couch, door handles etc) to be cleaned meticulously, to ensure no clients crossover and to have sufficient time to open the windows for ventilation. I am using a specific cleaning product (“proven to kill 99.99% bacteria and enveloped viruses including Covid-19, MRSA, Influenza and E-Coli - fully certified to BS EN 1276, BS EN 14476 and BS EN 13697 standards”);
Prior to your session, we will go through a simple risk assessment to ensure that it is safe for you to attend. To help me provide a safe environment to all my clients, please note that you will not be able to attend for a treatment if:
- you have a cough, a fever or loss of taste & smell or have been in touch with anyone with these symptoms;
-you have any cold or flu-like symptoms (even if it is confirmed not to be Covid);
-you have been involved in a higher risk activity such as attendance at a large event or air travel in the last 10 days.
The DayDream Couch
My treatment room is now equipped with the best and most comfortable couch you can possibly imagine! The way it is advertised perfectly describes the feedback I am getting from clients: “the luxurious DayDream couch was designed to offer everything a therapist needs to provide an unforgettable experience. Clients don’t just get treated on the DayDream couch, they take a vacation.”
The above combined with my expertise and knowledge will give you the perfect experience.
The Treatment Room
Having worked in local clinics in Bristol, I decided to set up my own treatment room in 2008. The treatment room is situated in a quiet residential area in Sea Mills, Bristol.
Parking is guaranteed in front of the premises, making it easier and stress free for you to come to your Reflexology session.
Treatments take place in a warm, relaxing and comfortable dedicated room, equipped to the highest standard.
If you come by public transport, buses 3 and 4 stop at Sea Mills Library/Sea Mills Square, which are only few minutes walk to the treatment room. You can find more details on the contact page.
Association of Reflexologists (AoR) therapist
AoR members hold a recognised reflexology qualification, are fully insured, undertake continuing professional development and abide by the AoR’s comprehensive Code of Practice.
It is important to stress that there are currently no legal requirements with regard to training as a reflexologist in the UK. So you may find some therapists in practice who have done only 1 or 2 days’ training. However, you can be assured that when you choose a member of the Association of Reflexologists, the therapist treating you will have completed 300 hours of learning or more, carried out a minimum of 100 treatments during their training and is required to continue their learning to remain a member.
By choosing an approved AoR therapist, you will be in safe hands. Please don’t settle for less.
