Reflexology is a Complementary Therapy that works on the feet or hands enabling the body to heal itself. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, the body is in a state of "imbalance", and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body's natural equilibrium and encourage healing.

A Reflexologist uses hands only to apply pressure to the feet. For each person the application and the effect of the therapy is unique. Sensitive, trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet, and by working on these points the Reflexologist can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body. Tensions are eased, and circulation and elimination is improved. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself, often counteracting a lifetime of misuse.



My name is Siobhan Allan and I established Solemate Reflexology in 2008. I am a fully qualified reflexologist having trained with the Sole Purpose School of Reflexology. I am also a member of the Association of Reflexologists.

I offer reflexology from comfortable treatment rooms in Newick, East Sussex, or in your own home by appointment, within a 10 mile radius of Uckfield, Crowborough, Lewes or Haywards Heath.

I was a nurse for 18 years working most recently as a nurse practitioner in Accident and Emergency and Minor Injuries.  My medical knowledge and experience enriches my understanding of, and empathy with, clients ailments. However, as your reflexologist, I do not diagnose diseases nor attempt to treat or prescribe for specific medical conditions.

The stresses and strains of everyday life can so easy to disrupt our bodies natural equilibrium without enough relaxation, lack of exercise, unhealthy diet or stress. I am convinced that reflexology can help restore the balance.

Client Testimonials

Siobhan, Reflexologist

Together with minor adjustments to his diet I have found regular reflexology sessions to be beneficial to my own 10 year old son’s asthma. His asthma appears better controlled and his general immunity improved. I now use reflexology as first aid for the whole family, to help relax and reduce inflammation when required. A short treatment on an unsettled child at bedtime can be extremely beneficial

Polly, Newick

I was a little skeptical that reflexology would be anything other than an opportunity to put my feet up. In just a short time however I found a noticeable improvement in the frequency and duration of headaches. Even more importantly the whole experience of having reflexology has reinforced for me how mind, body and emotions are all so inextricably linked. Siobahn’s holistic approach and empathetic ear to all that is going on in my life as part of the treatments has really renewed my energy to pursue a more positive state of health and wellness

Mary, FiveAshDown

I don’t think I’ve ever really known how to relax like I do during my reflexology session. I often doze off and feel so refreshed afterwards. Siobahn’s calm and professional manner demonstrates her sincere interest in the general health and wellbeing of her clients and reveals her sound knowledge and skill in the practice



What Happens When You Go For Treatment?


On your first visit there is a preliminary talk with the practitioner. The Reflexologist then begins to work on your feet, or hands if necessary, noting problem areas. There may be discomfort in some places, but it is fleeting, and is an indication of congestion or imbalance in a corresponding part of the body. For the most part, the sensation is pleasant and soothing.

Usually a treatment session lasts for 1 hour. A course of treatment varies in length depending on your body's needs. Your Reflexologist will discuss this with you at the first session.

After the first or second treatment your body may respond in a very definite way: you may have a feeling of well-being and relaxation; or you may feel slightly lethargic, tearful or develop a headache. Such responses are indicative of your body eliminating toxins and are short lived. This should be seen as response to treatment. You will be advised to drink plenty of water and avoid caffeine/alcohol.

How do I know that I will be seeing a fully qualified practitioner?

Siobhan Allan is a fully qualified, registered and insured member of the Association of Reflexologists, and thereby adheres to their strict code of practice and ethics.

How many treatments will I need?

The initial consultation will help assess the number of sessions required and their frequency. Every person is unique and so are their reasons for seeking reflexology. Improvement may be seen in a short period of time or it may take a number of weeks to see significant benefits if the presenting problem has been a long-term issue.
Generally however, 4-6 weekly treatments are recommended to get a good sense of the individuals response to reflexology. Many clients enjoy ongoing treatments as an effective method of maintaining a healthy immune system and sense of well being……a time for you.

My feet are ticklish! Will the treatment hurt?

I have treated many clients, I have yet to have a client who was too ticklish to have treatment.Sometimes reflexes are sensitive, this will indicate that those parts of the body are congested or out of balance. Pressure will be adjusted as necessary.
