Clare’s Speciality

My home clinic is set in a peaceful country garden setting, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Close to Rangiora with free convenient parking at the door. Having a medical nursing background complements Reflexology. I love the holistic approach of Reflexology because you see and treat the person as a whole being (physical, emotional and spiritual), not just as a physical symptom! Reflexology treats the cause, not just the symptom! Stress management….A study by the American Medical Association reported stress was a factor in 75% of all diseases. A recent study even linked the effects of stress to weakening the heart muscle. The relaxation process induced by Reflexology enables the body to be more capable of dealing with stresses placed on it by daily life and any illness. Reflexology is not used to diagnose conditions and it is not a substitute for seeking medical advice from your doctor. Reflexology is designed to help you achieve and maintain optimum health. Reflexology works by bringing the body back to balance.

About Clare

I am married and have two sons. We love living in the country where we have many animals and a large mature garden which creates an idyllic, tranquil and peaceful setting for Reflexology and Massage, which I do from home. Working with people has always been a passion of mine. I did my Nursing Diploma and loved working as a nurse for over 15 years in surgical hospitals and general practices. I completed my Diploma in Reflexology and Relaxation massage at the Canterbury College of Natural Medicine in 2010. Since graduating I have been running my busy home based business called “Healthcare Naturally” three days per week. My passion for working with people as a nurse has led me to discover Natural health therapies. My personal experience with Reflexology has been amazing….The more I learn about ‘us’ the more I realise I don’t know! It is a journey of wonderful learning and awareness.

I have fertility problems and was prescribed clomaphine by our local fertility clinic. I was on this medication for several months and although it was working well we still did not achieve a successful pregnancy. My husband and I decided to try intra-uterine insemination (IUI) and this was also not successful. The drugs and hormone treatments were not pleasant and often left me feeling like I had extreme PMT. During this time I had begun to have reflexology treatments with Clare Gemmell and found this to be an extremely positive experience. Within 2 months of stopping all fertility treatments and continuing to have weekly reflexology sessions with Clare I became pregnant. I am convinced this is not a co-incidence, and that the reflexology treatments significantly contributed to my successful pregnancy. Clare was extremely professional and put a lot of effort into the sessions, making them highly effective and extremely relaxing and pleasant. I am looking forward to continuing my treatments throughout my pregnancy.
