ALEX BOTTOMLEY (MAR) // REFLEXOLOGIST
Although only ever having reflexology once before, it was a large part of Alex's life. Her first experience was at the age of 15, receiving it at a hospice very soon after her father passed away. Whilst going through such a difficult time, the treatment managed to transport her to a place of deep relaxation, a place to slow down and switch off from her worries and fears. It is for this reason that Alex trained in reflexology. She has created a safe, still, healing space to share with others.
