Complementary Therapy Practitioners
Complementary Holistic practitioners offered at Combe Grove
One of Combe Grove’s expert holistic practitioners is Rosalind, who offers reflexology; a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands. This controlled pressure alleviates the source of the discomfort. In the absence of any specific illness or abnormality, reflexology may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness.
Rosalind is a precious find combining many years’ professional experience with an empathetic and nurturing touch. Having qualified in Anatomy, Physiology and Massage in 1990 and as a member of The Association of Reflexologists in 1995, Rosalind went on to set up her own reflexology training school, The Bath Reflexology Centre, in 1995. The school evolved into the renowned Complementary Therapy College with Rosalind taking the decision in 2013 to retire from teaching and to focus all her energy on her practice.
Rosalind has been instrumental in setting up the Combe Grove wellness practitioners’ portfolio and is always happy to share her wider holistic knowledge with her clients.

Another of our complementary therapy practitioners is Brian, who is highly skilled in Acupuncture. Acupuncture is a technique in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body, most often by inserting thin needles through the skin. It is one of the practices used in traditional Chinese medicine.
Bryan, who is originally from New Zealand, qualified as an acupuncturist in 1995 at The College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading and is a member of The British Acupuncture Council. Believing strongly in treating the whole person and not just a particular symptom, Bryan studied an integration of Traditional Chinese Medicine and 5 Element acupuncture. His experience is that Traditional Chinese Medicine helps relieve the physical symptoms whilst the 5 Element acupuncture works to reach deeper, more emotional conditions. The combination leads to a healthier balance achieved more quickly.
Symptoms commonly eased: fatigue, headaches, fertility issues, hip and back pain, tennis elbow, sciatica, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), hay fever.
Kinesiology uses gentle muscle testing to balance the body physically, emotionally, energetically, and nutritionally. It assists with food intolerance identification, diet and lifestyle guidance, nutritional supplement recommendations and eases stress and anxiety.
Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique. Gentle and non-invasive, aids relaxation, assists, the body’s natural healing process, relieves emotional stress and benefits overall wellbeing.
Caroline is a fully qualified Kinesiology and Reiki practitioner, certified by the Association of Systematic Kinesiology and the Shimbumi International Reiki Association.
By the power of touch Caroline reads muscle imbalances within the body in order to ease the resulting physical and emotional symptoms such as headaches, joint pain, back problems, and lack of energy.
The feedback received through the muscles indicates to Caroline what the body needs and where the priority areas are. Imbalances are then corrected using nutritional supplements, emotional stress release techniques, acupressure, Bach flower remedies, reflex massage, suggested lifestyle changes and more.
Symptoms commonly eased: digestive health, headaches, fatigue, stress and anxiety, skin problems, menopausal symptoms, sleep issues, back pain.
