Reflexology, Facial Rejuvenation Massage & Reiki to relax, rebalance & restore
your natural state of wellbeing.
Stress Relief & Wellbeing Support
Hello and welcome! I am a Therapist & Coach in the South Devon area, offering stress relief, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing support . Complementary Therapies include Reflexology, Facial Rejuvenation Massage, Reiki and Creative Mindfulness Meditation
Maybe you are going through a challenging, stressful time in your life. You may be experiencing physical symptoms like IBS, Colitis, headaches, inflammation, neck tension, chronic pain, not sleeping, low mood and depression, feeling overwhelmed, anxiety, skin conditions like eczema, difficulty breathing and conditions like asthma, painful periods, uncomfortable menopausal symptoms and hormonal imbalances
All these symptoms are a wake up call for you to take some time for some deep relaxation when the body and mind can recover, repair and restore your natural sense of balance and wellbeing. If you want to avoid spiralling into a more serious situation you must take care of yourself first.
After a career in the Arts and Culture Sector the desire to train as a Complementary Therapist sprang from my need to make changes, simplify and de-stress my life after a period of ten years in which I experienced life changing critical illness, extreme life stress and major trauma. Going through these experiences taught me diverse ways to support my recovery, health and well-being which has included complementary therapies, mindfulness meditation, Yoga, free movement and dance, creativity and spending time in nature.
With stress becoming the number one cause of long term sickness I have been approached recently to introduce Reflexology to the staff of a number of organisations in the south west including First Great Western, British Ceramic Tile, The Child Support Agency and Job Centers to de-stress and support their well being.
I have also worked as a volunteer complementary therapist for a local Hospice, and offer therapies at local Residential Homes, Meditation Retreat Centres and Spa Retreats.
I also offer group bookings for pamper parties and retreats. Please contact me for details
Reflexology is a gentle complementary therapy that works by massaging and applying gentle pressure on the feet or hands encouraging the body to deeply relax, heal and rebalance itself, often counteracting a lifetime of misuse. PLEASE NOTE: I have heard from some people that they have been put off Reflexology in the past by therapists who have been trained to use very firm pressure making the treatment quite painful. I work with gentle, yet firm pressure and can assure you that this is delightful foot massage is a real treat for your feet!
Reflexology may help:
- Relieve stress and related conditions
- Relieve digestive issues like IBS
- Improve energy levels
- Relieve pain
- Strengthen the immune system
- Restore hormonal balance
- Improve sleep
- Increase a feeling of well being
Together with traditional Reflexology massage techniques I also use Precision Reflexology. Precision Reflexology is a light touch technique that accesses a person’s subtle energy by ‘linking’ two or more reflex points simultaneously. Using the fingertips delicately, the reflexologist senses the pulse that can be detected running between the points. Working intuitively, the points will be released when the energy has changed. Precision work responds to the needs of each individual and aims to maintain natural balance. As with other forms of reflexology, it focuses on stimulating ‘reflex points’ on the feet in order to maintain good health. These reflex points relate to various parts of the body. Despite the gentleness of the fingertip linking, the effects may be powerful, with the person feeling an expansion of energy and a deep sense of calm. The technique is received differently by each person- some feel responses isolated to the feet, while others feel responses in the relevant areas of the body. Healing may occur when the body is deeply relaxed and it’s energy can be channeled inward.
Single Sessions £35. Please ask about my current series discount.
Home visits start at £40.
I offer sessions at my home practice in Ashburton, and home visits to surrounding areas. Please contact me for more info on home visits and gift vouchers.
‘The Reflexology worked really well. No pain in my back from the sciatica; I have never felt so much relief in all the time I have had it. I am so impressed, thank you.’ Mike Maloney, train driver, First Greatwestern
‘ After all medical tests found nothing I was advised by a friend that Reflexology would almost certainly help with a stress-related breathing problem I was experiencing, where merely going upstairs proved extremely difficult and which, being about to turn 65 and still reasonably fit, I found a touch alarming. My wife tracked-down Kamini and I haven’t looked back. I have also experienced considerable relief from other complaints, which I had been accepting as part of the ageing process. These included cramp, indigestion, haemorrhoids a long standing knee issue and various minor muscular pains, all of which have now diminished considerably which has been a real bonus. My original breathing problem has all-but disappeared. I am delighted to unreservedly recommend The Heart of Calm, you won’t be disappointed.’ Rob Bird, Dartmouth.
‘I was introduced to Kamini and reflexology at a time of extreme mental and physical stress. The hour sessions I spent with her were islands of peace and tranquility that alone were of tremendous help and her reflexology skills amazed me. I was left floating on air and on the occasion of the fourth visit had a wonderful night’s sleep without painkillers.’ Anne Fryer, Dawlish.
‘After my last session my neck & shoulder pain was 80% better I didn’t need the pain killers again. Amazing!’ D. Y, Behaviour Consultant, Denbury.
‘The sessions with Kamini are profoundly relaxing and nurturing. They help to reduce my stress levels (I am a night nurse) and most importantly I sleep so much better.’ F. Briot, Psychiatric Nurse, Teignmouth.
‘Thanks so much Kamini for such wonderful treatments that restored my mind, body and spirit to balance. Your reflexology targeted and supported the healing of my particular physical ailments, but also it enhanced my well-being as a whole, allowing me to feel more relaxed and at one with the world.’ Nora Doyle, Nurse & Yoga Teacher, Plymouth
‘I had a series of Reflexology sessions with Kamini a while ago and found the whole experience very calming and relaxing. I was feeling rather stressed and this really helped ground me. Kamini was totally welcoming, attentive and professional.’ Lynne, Ashburton.
‘Reflexology is a wonderful therapy for relaxation and for the well being of the body. I found the sessions gentle, and nurturing, Kamini wove her expert knowledge and understanding with sensitivity that has proved most healing. I highly recommend her.’ J. Kilty, Psychotherapist, Buckfastleigh

Facial Rejuvenation Massage
During the treatment, over ninety face and neck muscles are systematically massaged. Acupressure points are activated, stimulating energy flow and releasing deep-seated tension, freeing layers of muscle and connective tissue (8 of the 12 major energy meridians have points on the face!) making it a 'whole body' treatment.
Massage ‘smoothing’ techniques are used so that circulation is improved and the tissues can glide smoothly over the deeper layers of muscle and bone. The whole process has been described as a bit like ironing out the creases, making the skin feel smoother and softer and improving the complexion and skin tone.
Natural Rejuvenation Facial Massage may help to:
Improve skin suppleness
Reduce and release any muscle tension in the face and jaw
Relieve stress symptoms such as insomnia, headaches and eye strain
Tones and helps to tighten the skin and underlying muscle
Stimulate rejuvenation and cellular activity
Aid lymphatic circulation increasing the elimination of toxins and the supply of nutrients to the cells
Aid the removal of dead skin cells
Maintain a fresh and youthful appearance
Enhance mental and physical relaxation.
Single Treatment: £40 approx 1hr
Ultimate 90min Pamper: £60: Full Facial Rejuvenation Massage treatment plus foot reflexology treatment for that ultimate relaxation!

Reiki uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands on healing. Through the use of this technique therapists believe that they are transferring universal energy in the form of ‘qi’ through the palms, which allows for self healing and a state of deep calm and equilibrium.
Usui Reiki is an original method of healing, rediscovered by a Buddhist monk Mikao Usui in Japan. Reiki translates to “Universal Energy” and works on four levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, and promotes the body’s regenerative self-healing ability.
Reiki: Single Session £30.
