Hello, I'm Hayley, a qualified nurse, reflexologist and holistic therapist. I'm fully insured by Balens insurance, a full member of The Association of Reflexologists (AOR) and registered on the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, the UK Voluntary Regulator for complementary therapists. This register was set up to protect the public and promote high standards of treatment. Joining the register shows my commitment to these high standard and I adhere to professional codes of conduct. My education, association registration and insurance certificates are always available for viewing.
I thought it might also be helpful to tell you about me personally, to help you to decide if I might be the therapist for you. I'm Hayley and I'm married to James who is a photographer (James Merrick Photography - he took the photo at the top of this page!) and graphic designer. We live in Eccleshall and feel so lucky to live in the beautiful Staffordshire countryside. I love nature, sunsets (and rises) rainbows, trees, horses, animals, birds, cups of tea, especially Earl Grey and herbal and I'm also a lover of cake! My hobbies are learning, the cinema, making natural skincare and having reflexology!
I've always been interested in nature and as a child would spend hours sat in the garden, communing with the fairies, playing with flowers and leaves. I can still remember how magical it felt and I knew that nature was special. I know that nature heals and I created Luna Rose Therapies out of a passionate desire to introduce more woman to the power of
natural therapies and connecting with nature.
The amazing thing is that even as a child I was interested in
natural healing, I think I knew my calling but,
as is the case for many people, I began to do what I thought
I "should" do. I spent less andless time outside in nature
as I grew older.
I qualified as a nurse in 2010 and prior to this I spent years working at the hospital in other roles, working shifts played havoc with me and I couldn't shake the feeling that I wasn't where I was supposed to be. In 2011, I went through a significant period of stress at work, I didn't know it at the time, but this period of my life set me on my rightful path, back to natural therapies and I am forever grateful for it. I left the hospital to work in occupational health and wellbeing, which I did for 7 years before leaving to set up my holistic practice.
Since 2012, I've studied and gained practitioner qualifications in reiki, animal reiki, reflexology, facials, meditation teaching, nutrition, aromatherapy, flower remedies, crystal and colour therapy. I've also undertaken a year long Hedgewitch apprenticeship with Sally Morningstar, studied organic and natural skincare, sound healing, astrology, shamanic techniques and herbalism, which have helped to develop me as a person and a therapist, putting me back in touch with what really matters. I will never stop learning and expanding my knowledge and regularly attend CPD training, which is also a requirement of registration with the AOR.
I look forward to working with you and supporting you along your own journey of health, relaxation and wellbeing.
Please contact me by email, phone or social media to find out more, I'm always happy to chat!
With lots of Love,
