I used to suffer greatly from insomnia and migraines; to the point that it was affecting my day to day life. Some nights I would struggle to grab 2 hours sleep and my concentration was all over the place. If I was unlucky and got a migraine, I knew that I would be inactive for an entire day due to the nausea and crippling pain that came with them. After countless trips to the doctors and trying every remedy I could think of I was beginning to resign myself to the fact that there was no cure; and then I heard of Reflexology. I was sceptical to begin with and did not think that it would help in a million years; but Vanessa has turned my life around. Thanks to her I am back to having restful nights sleeps and the migraines are a distant memory... now I just keep my appointments to enjoy the relaxation that comes with them! The accuracy in what Vanessa discovered about me just through my feet is quite amazing. I definitely recommend Reflexology by Vanessa.

My name is Vanessa Cavanagh and my reflexology business is mainly mobile, but I do have the use of a room at Rejuvenate Therapy clinic in Dunstable once a week. I provide reflexology and reiki treatments and have been qualified since 2008.

I had been a firm believer in reflexology for years before I decided to attend a course to learn how to do it myself. The reason I am a reflexologist is a family member had been a migraine sufferer most of his adult life and reflexology was the one thing that had helped him. Upon qualifying I continued working in an office. After I was made redundant I decided this was an opportunity to pursue a career as an holistic therapist and have not looked back!


I offer Reflexology, Reflexology in Pregnancy, Usui Reiki, Angelic Reiki, Bach Flower Remedies and Foot Reading. (Foot Reading can be used as a party trick or as a therapy as the feet show characteristics that we possess. For example; the arches, line of the toes and the colour of the feet say something about a person's character and how they are feeling. Believe it or not, our feet change all the time!)

I have a very strong belief in Bach Flower Remedies and can advise clients on appropriate remedies to take to help them eliminate negative states of mind. I have completed courses at Level One and Level Two. My clients have been very pleased with the results they have experienced to date, as reflexology and Bach Flower Remedies do compliment each other in aiding the healing process.

I am a Usui Reiki Master as I have completed Usui Reiki training levels, I, II and III. 'Reiki' means 'Universal Life Force' and is a system of natural healing. I am also an Angelic Reiki Practitioner. Angelic reiki is a healing that works through the angelic realms and the recipient is supported to let go of physical, emotional and karmic imbalances and issues throughout all time and space. It is received as very gentle energy but powerful as a form of healing. Reiki eases a busy mind and tense body as it allows the body's immune system to balance thereby aiding healing on physical and spiritual levels. It is given with the client fully clothed. It is felt as heat, coolness or even tingling. Pregnant women benefit from reiki too as it is completely safe and non-intrusive.

I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist.

I am a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists and am fully insured.
