I am Catherine Breen registered and accredited Reflexologist and Women’s Health Coach in St Albans. Passionate about natural health and wellbeing I have been practising in the private sector as a Reflexologist since 2014. During the lockdowns I took the opportunity to study with the CNM College of Naturopathic Medicine and qualified as a Health & Wellness Coach in 2021.
I offer Reflexology for everyone and can help you improve your health and wellbeing. Reflexology is a relaxing experience and effective for releasing stress & tension, improving blood and lymphatic flow, eliminating toxins, purifying internal organs, relieving anxiety and negative emotions.
My Health Coaching and Reflexology bundle focuses on Women's Health and Building Resilience. This package is to empower women with the tools they need to create a resilient foundation, help women make better decisions about their wellbeing and achieve realistic sustainable life long changes.
I believe that silent killers such as chronic stress and inflammation responsible for many issues must not be ignored.
Not only have I helped clients improve their wellbeing I have been on a journey improving my own to restore my natural balance after a diagnosis of osteoporosis, hormonal issues and a life trauma. In my spare time I practise yoga, pilates, love walking, listening to music, gardening and reading as well as catching up with family and friends. I strongly believe that with the right mind every one can succeed in becoming healthier and happier, please don't hesitate to contact me to see how I can help.
Reflexology is a non invasive holistic treatment mainly applied through the feet, hand or face. It deals with the principle that there are reflex areas on the feet which correspond to all the body systems, organs, muscles, glands. Reflexology can be used for pure relaxation, to prevent against ailments or medical reasons.
If you would like more information about a specific condition and are unsure whether reflexology would be helpful, please contact me and I will be happy to discuss your concerns and offer appropriate advice.
As a Health Coach my focus is on Women's Health & Resilience Building for a stronger body and mind.
I support women to take proactive steps to improve the way they manage their mental and physical health conditions based on what matters to them.
My mission is to support women to realise long lasting changes, live a healthy life with vitality and an open heart. Please contact me if there is anything you would like to discuss.
I am based in St Albans but see clients from the surrounding Harpenden, Luton, Wheathampstead, Welwyn Garden City, Redbourn, London Colney & Chiswell Green. All treatments are carried out in a private and comfortable home setting.
“Reflexology sessions with Catherine have helped me remain healthy and sane during a very stressful, awful period of my life. Very appreciative of her knowledge of all things natural health and her calming presence has been so useful to me.”
“I started my therapy with Catherine - initially reflexotherapy only, back in early 2019. What was supposed to be a month of weekly treatment followed by monthly checkups has been - except during lockdowns - a weekly treatment ever since given the massive positive impact on my health thanks to the holistic approach that Catherine has always given to me. She is incredibly accurate regarding the weekly needs of my health, and she also recommends diet changes, breathing exercises or small adjustments here and there. She works with a genuine sense of duty and care... and she's a delightful person too!”
“Having a reflexology treatment with Catherine is a wonderful experience - so relaxing and at the same time informative. Catherine gives me realistic advice on what I can do to support my own health in between treatments.”
“A friend recommended Catherine’s health coaching and reflexology bundle at a time I felt stuck, overwhelmed with life in general and suffered from long covid. I don’t know how to describe it but I am feeling so much happier and lighter as if a cloud has been lifted. My energy level is up again, no more napping in the afternoon, my lungs aren’t as congested as they were back when I first started with the sessions, cough gone and I was able to resume my full time professional responsibilities.”
“Thank you Catherine for your skills, knowledge and good practice. I always look forward to my reflexology session.”
“Catherine’s approach was instinctive and holistic considering all aspects of my health and wellbeing. Via her relaxing treatments I was able to notice change in my skin, digestion, skeletal pain and tension and my energy levels especially at a particularly stressful time. Catherine was able to draw on a good supportive background knowledge of techniques and other modalities to support her treatments and was able to explain their interplay and her rationale for their use. I would highly recommend Catherine’s Reflexology treatments.”
“Absolute bliss. 10 out of 10. Since I’ve started having weekly reflexology sessions with Catherine, my energy levels have gone up, the digestive system is working better and the stress has melted away.”
“Since having regular treatments of reflexology over the last four months I have noticed a considerable change for the better with my digestive system-feeling less bloated plus it has speeded up my metabolism. It has also helped with kick starting a rather sluggish thyroid giving me renewed energy and a definite sense of all round well-being.”
“Reflexology, one of the most relaxing yet energising treatment I have ever received. Thank you Catherine.”
“Receiving treatment from Catherine is a pleasure. Her calm and professional manner inspires confidence as does her obvious enthusiasm, knowledge and commitment.”
“I had a series of reflexology sessions with Catherine. Above all, I found them to be deeply relaxing, indeed I fell asleep during the first two sessions which is absolutely unheard of for me! I would describe myself as a typical working mum, always multitasking and often stressed...
“Reflexology certainly helped me with this, not only during the session itself to relax but also a sense of feeling more together, more balanced. I found that this could last for a few days afterwards and indeed I slept better during this period. After the first couple of sessions I reported to Catherine that I had a headache. She reassured me that this was normal and was a result of the toxins being released. She advised me to drink lots of water. I found reflexology as a practice very interesting and was always impressed when Catherine was able to identify either current or past injuries/issues that I have/had. Catherine is extremely professional; she took a full history from me and then would check in on me after the session and then again before the next session. She was always able to answer my questions and offered helpful advice on diet and lifestyle. The sessions we reconducted in a warm, calming and homely environment which made me feel very at ease.”
“Work recently has been particularly stressful and was partly responsible to a bad bout of eczema which cleared up during my treatments. My lower back pain which continually causes me irritation greatly improved.”
“I have to admit to being slightly sceptical about the value of such treatment. I had mild ache in my lower back. I realised afterwards that my back ache was considerably alleviated I also noticed a general improvement in my well-being.”
“I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed the reflexology treatments and feel that there have been some significant and lasting benefit from them. The physical PMT symptoms are much reduced and emotionally I haven’t felt nearly so unbalanced.”
“I have suffered with neck and shoulder issues following a car accident over twenty years ago. Although physiotherapy would relieve the symptoms temporarily, it is only since starting reflexology with Catherine, in August 2014, that I have been consistently pain free and regained complete flexibility in my neck.”
“I noticed that I was emotionally more stable and suffered less from PMT. As somebody who feels quite alien towards anything relaxing I was surprised how well I relaxed into it and how much I enjoyed the treatments. Catherine is very adaptable to different people needs and I very much enjoyed all her treatments.”
“Catherine is a very sensitive, intuitive Reflexologist. After a quick chat before each treatment, to see how I’ve been since the previous one, Catherine never fails to pickup on energy blocks or aches and pains during the treatment, even when I haven’t mentioned them! I also find her pressure just right for me.”
“I attended Catherine's reflexology for a number of weeks and although I was very sceptical to start with, it proved a very beneficial experience. The environment Catherine creates is very relaxing and her attentiveness is second to none. Her treatment allowed me to de-stress and I found I had a lot more energy after a few sessions.”
“I initially saw Catherine for stress related symptoms and night terrors. When I first began the treatments I often felt worse for a day or two then would start to pick up and have more energy by the next treatment. After my 4thsession I stopped feeling quite so fatigued and the headaches became less after the sessions. By the end of my 8th session I felt more energised, less achy and my night terrors have stopped! I am pleased with the outcome and surprised at how well I still feel after having a break. I will start to have a top up treatment so I stay feeling strong and healthy and keep those toxins at bay! Thank you for all your support Catherine.”
“I originally went to see Catherine for help with my youngest child’s eczema which was severe. Having exhausted traditional medicine, which treated eczema itself rather than the underlying cause, I decided to try an alternative therapy and was incredibly happy that I did. Catherine is a wonderful reflexologist and the sessions cleared up my daughter’s eczema and have kept it at bay.”
Unlike traditional treatments, Catherine was able to identity the root cause of the issue and gave me great advice to help manage my daughter’s diet and environment and focus on reducing anxiety to prevent the eczema returning. I was so happy with the results with my daughter that my son and I also started Reflexology treatment with Catherine. Again, she helped us both greatly, not just through the reflexology treatment, which improved our symptoms, but also through the great advice she gave us on nutrition, massage, managing emotions, stress reduction, exercise etc... Catherine is a font of knowledge on health and wellbeing. Her ability to work holistically , taking into account the whole person and not just the isolated symptom, is invaluable. I thoroughly enjoyed the treatments I had with Catherine as I always left feeling better and having learnt something new. I would thoroughly recommend her as a reflexologist.
