Beth Astle MAR

Reflexologist

Reduce stress and anxiety; enable relaxation

Welcome.

My name is Beth Astle I am a qualified Reflexologist working in the Chipping Norton and Deddington area, Oxfordshire.

I have been practicing as a Reflexologist for the last ten years. During this time I have expanded my services through Indian Head Massage, advanced Facial Reflexology and Zone Face Lift with the award-winning Ziggie Bergman. I have qualified in Spinal Reflexology with Louise Keet, the principle at the London School of Reflexology, have become a Reflexology Lymph Drainage practitioner after studying with its pioneer, Sally Kay and offer Reflexology for Menopause having been taught by the published Sally Earlam.

Encouraging good health and wellbeing has been important to me for many years. I volunteered with Aryuvedic herbalist Annie McIntyre in 2012, I have studied reiki and massage, and I have worked with a nutritionist to develop a "food for mood" course for Bristol Food Hub, to promote food that supports mental health. I was finally led to Reflexology when I was struggling to conceive my first child. During my successful journey to start a family, I experienced the first hand power of Reflexology to release stress and blocked emotion, and improve my physical health. This inspired me to train as a Reflexologist to help others experience the benefits as I had. I remain amazed by the power of Reflexology, I love working with this therapy and enjoy continually adding to my knowledge and expertise to ensure my clients receive the best treatment.

I am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists.

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a touch therapy that works with the body to help rebalance itself, It reduces stress and improves well being. The theory behind Reflexology is that different points of the foot (hands or face) reflect the organs and systems of the body. Pressure applied to these points, known as reflexes, is believed to bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body.

Clients come to me for a range of reasons, for some it contributes to managing a chronic complaint or as part of overcoming an illness. For others it is a chance to gain support, for example, whilst going through the menopause, with impaired immunity and with stress and mental and emotional health issues. Reflexology doesn’t claim to diagnose or cure.


For my maternity clients, women have found that Reflexology can help them in many ways, from fertility issues, during the pregnancy journey to helping parent and baby. For women journeying through menopause they have found it a useful addition to easing the transition.

On the initial appointment I will ask a few questions about your present and past health and lifestyle, then you relax and enjoy the treatment, apart from removing shoes and socks for foot reflexology each therapy I offer is fully clothed.

From the first consultation I will tailor your treatments to best suit you, I draw on all my different therapies and respond to your feedback at the beginning of each session to create your individual treatment plan.

Especially if you are coming with a specific issue a course of four-six weekly or fortnightly treatments can have an amazing result. Many clients follow this with a monthly maintenance treatment for on going health. Others just enjoy a one off or irregular treatment to take the time to relax, and reduce stress or simply to retain a feeling of wellness.

Reflexology for Menopause

Menopause is a natural journey experienced by all women, yet it is different for each person. There is a long list of symptoms that can be encountered and for some it can be a difficult time. It is also a time of change, an opportunity to reframe what we want for our next stage of life and make lifestyle changes to enable an easier menopause and to support us through to healthy aging.


Reflexology for menopause can be a great help, lowering stress levels can reduce menopausal symptoms - so why not see how the deep relaxation from Reflexology makes you feel.

"Chronically elevated Cortisol (stress) increases the likelihood of severe menopausal symptoms”

Cagnacci et al. 2011. Menopause 18, 3, 273-8

A Reflexology for Menopause treatment can be tailored for your needs, including an endocrine balance if the hormonal system needs support, lymph drainage for inflammation if there is joint pain and an anxiety support sequence when anxiety or stress is experienced. Together we will find the best treatment for you.


There are such a variety of symptoms during menopause that scientific research can be difficult but there are a growing number of studies showing how Reflexology can be an important part of women’s menopause journey. This includes research showing that Reflexology improves sleep and hot flushes during menopause (1); that it can be effective in decreasing vasomotor problems and that it increases the quality of life during the menopause period (2); and can help with depression during the menopause (3).


The benefits improve further for those women that couple Reflexology with lifestyle changes. I work with Sally Earlam’s ‘ Five Pillars for a Healthy Menopause’ to enable women to transition into a healthier, more vibrant them at their own pace. For those that wish to, we can look at Diet, Exercise, Relaxation, Stress and Purpose bringing small gradual changes for long lasting results.
