Relax - De-stress - Balance - Revitalise
Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Lyn Franklin, I'm a fully trained and insured Aromatherapist and Reflexologist with over 20 years 'hands-on' experience.
I'm a full member of both the Association of Reflexologists (AOR) and the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (IFPA). Also a full member and board member of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists (ARR).
I offer Aromatherapy, General Reflexology, Fertility and Maternity Reflexology from my tranquil home practice in central Surbiton, Surrey (close to Kingston, Thames Ditton & Esher). Alternatively, if you prefer, a home visit can be arranged.
As well as assisting people to manage the many stress related problems emanating from today's fast pace of life, my particular interest is in womens' health - menstrual irregularities such as PCOS, fibroids and endometriosis - peri/post menopause, preconception, pregnancy and post natal care.
Additionally I see couples seeking help whilst undergoing fertility treatment with conventional medical practitioners - I'm qualified to work safely alongside IUI, IVF/ICSI protocols, frozen embryo transfer or donor cycles.
My treatments are not an alternative to seeing your Doctor or Fertility Consultant. I believe in integrative medicine where the two can work together in harmony - please always inform your medical caregiver that you are seeking my help.

My location in Surbiton (2 mins walk from station)
My practice in Surbiton is easily accessible from Kingston, Thames Ditton and Esher. I'm a 2 minute walk from Surbiton Station and Waitrose where you can park for free for up to 2 hours. There are also Pay & Display meters locally and a Car Park close by in adjacent St.Philip's Road.
As an holistic therapist, I take into account all aspects of your diet and lifestyle that affect your well-being as well as specific symptoms and medical conditions. For this reason the initial consultation plays a vital role in creating your treatment programme. This would be geared to your needs using Aromatherapy Massage, General Reflexology, Fertility or Maternity Reflexology or a combination and may also include lifestyle and dietary recommendations, supplements and other tools.
My treatments are aimed at decreasing stress and reducing other negative effects that for example fertility issues, pregnancy, the menopause, insomnia, anxiety or back pain may be having on your life. The number of treatments required will vary upon individual circumstances and this will be discussed at your first appointment.

Fertility & Maternity Reflexology "After 2 early miscarriages within a few months of each other and being told by the Drs they won't investigate until after 3, I knew I wanted to take things into my own hands and decided to look into natural therapies. I am SO pleased that I found reflexology and Lyn in particular. Lyn advised taking 3 months off trying for a baby to let the body recover and settle, and I had regular reflexology during this time. The appointments in the comfort of Lyn's home were very relaxing, she was a good listener and it became a time to focus on me. She also helped me recognise where I could adjust my lifestyle to increase my chances of a successful pregnancy. And 2 months after we started trying again I found out I was pregnant and I now have a beautiful baby boy! I continued reflexology throughout my pregnancy and I believe this helped manage my hormones, reduce any pregnancy symptoms and keep my energy levels up. I had a natural labour with only gas & air, and our little boy is doing great with feeding and sleeping...long may it last! I'd recommend Lyn to anyone wanting to explore a natural route to pregnancy before seeking out the medical options."
Fertility Reflexology - Fibroids I received reflexology for fertility over a year ago now and this has been the first opportunity for me to provide feedback. I commenced my journey with Lyn back in March 2015 and had been trying to conceive in excess of 5 years, the Dr said that I would not be able to conceive naturally and if I did fall pregnant, the baby would be ectopic so this was my last shot as I didn't want to go down the IVF route. I'd never done any reflexology before but new that I wanted to try complimentary therapy before I gave up hope.
Lyn without doubt made me feel like an individual, her non judgmental personable caring nature enabled me to open up fully about how I was feeling - and she treated me holistically. During the treatment I could really feel the areas that Lyn was working on and I was able to feel completely relaxed, she was able to identify the stress that I had been carrying for years.
She monitored me throughout various cycles, and was able to inform me about what was going on and taught me how to regulate my ovulation day as my cycles varied from 28 to 36 days. My situation was complicated with fibroids, Lyn never made it feel like conception was an insurmountable journey - instead she provided education for both me and my husband's diet and lifestyle - to shrink the fibroids and advised how to produce healthy eggs and sperm.
Like I said my journey started in Mar 2015 and by June 2015 I had my first ever positive pregnancy test! I write this as I watch my 5 month old son lay asleep. I can't thank you enough Lyn for not giving up on me and being responsible for the little miracle that lay before me. Thank You
Fertility Reflexology for male partner "My wife had been seeing Lyn for recurrent miscarriages and after she had been given the all clear both privately and on the NHS, Lyn advised us to get my sperm tested privately for DNA defragmentation. As this is not currently recognised or offered on the NHS, we thought hard about Lyn’s advice, but in the end decided to proceed and this did come back with negative results. Lyn was convinced this was the cause of our miscarriages and advised us (and me in particular) to make a number of simple lifestyle changes (eg better diet, no caffeine, no beer etc) and have reflexology weekly for 10-12 weeks as this is how long it takes for sperm to regenerate fully. We followed her advice and the first month we tried for a baby (after the 12 weeks was complete) we fell pregnant and are now 22 weeks pregnant. My wife has been seeing Lyn on and off since 2012 and she provides sound, well researched advice and takes great care in all her clients. She also provides a very homely, tranquil environment in which to have the treatments. I would certainly recommend Lyn to others as by the end of my treatment I felt totally relaxed and much healthier."
Maternity Reflexology "I won't be coming to see you on Friday because I had my daughter Felicity yesterday morning! I really believe you helped bring on the labour and left me feeling relaxed and confidant on Monday so that when the contractions started that evening I felt strong. Start to finish labour was 13 hours and I had the water birth with just gas and air that I wanted - thank you for helping me to achieve that. I will recommend you to everyone I know!"
