About

Robyn Alston

Robyn is a highly qualified massage therapist and reflexologist, initially qualifying many years ago, but taking a change in direction in recent years. An accident involving a Lurcher named Twiggy and a transit van in 2016, re-ignited her interest in massage, it being a vital component of Twiggy's 15 months of rehabilitation following 2 complex operations.

Robyn initially trained locally in holistic therapies on a 960 hour full time course.  In February 2017 she completed the Advanced Clinical Massage Foundation Course at Jing in Brighton (the leading massage school in the UK), under the expert tuition of Rachel Fairweather and Megan Mari and is also proficient in the use of the Hivamat Deep Oscillation machine (physiopod) along with warm bamboo massage. Refresher training in reflexology has taken place with Ann Gillanders (British School of Reflexology) and women's health reflexology with Hagar Basis (Reflexology Academy London) both in 2019 Learning from Hagar really ignited Robyn's passion for reflexlolgy and  2020 involved another CPD course with Hagar Basis - Reflexology for Stress along with Hamish Edgar's Limbic Reflexology, Oncology and Palliative Reflexology, RLD - Reflexology Lymph Drainage with Sally Kay and in 2021 Robyn has attended 2 of Tony Porter's ART (advanced reflexology techniques) seminars along with trainings in Facial Reflexology and Advanced Facial Reflexology - The Bergman Method, and Zone Face Lift and Facial cupping with Ziggie Bergman.  Near future plans include Sharon Wheeler's Scar Work.   Robyn is also currently undertaking a clinical placement offering reflexology at a local hospice. 

With over 1000 hours training behind her, Robyn is committed to providing a luxurious and quality massage and reflexology experience to her clients in the comfort of her welcoming therapy room in a barn in the Bedfordshire countryside, which is located next door to a beautiful B & B and yoga studio. She is passionate about the healing arts and easing soft tissue aches and pains, as well as being a strong believer in the restorative power of massage and reflexology and it's positive effects on the parasympathetic nervous system.

Whether you are looking for a gentle relaxing massage or a firmer deep tissue massage Robyn can provide this. She is fully insured with Balens and is a member of APNT (Association of Physical and Natural Therapists).
