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 22 years 'hands-on' experience.
I'm a full member of both the Association of Reflexologists (MAR) and the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (MIFPA). Also a full member and board member of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists (MARR).
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. PLEASE SEE SOME TESTIMONIALS BELOW
My treatments are not an alternative to seeing your Doctor or Fertility Consultant. I believe in integrated 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 based in North Road - a 2 minute walk from Surbiton Station and Waitrose where you can park for free for up to 2 hours.

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.

Reflexology to prepare for and support IVF Treatment "I used Lyn for reflexology starting in the autumn of 2015, in order to support a forthcoming round of IVF I was planning with my husband the following year. Our odds of having a baby were extremely low and mentally I was not in a good place. Meeting Lyn and starting treatment with her however was one of the best things that could have happened to me! Lyn is hugely knowledgable about fertility issues and immediately put me at ease when I met her. Lyn explained how she was going to treat me and why she was going to follow the suggested treatment plan, and gave me 'homework' do do between sessions to keep up her good work. Through her treatment Lyn successfully managed to move my ovulation forward in my monthly cycle and gave me ongoing support between sessions. Lyn also knew that I particularly liked being treated at a certain time on a certain day of the week and went out of her way to accommodate this. Lyn went on to support me throughout my round of IVF, successful conception and early stages of pregnancy. My little girl was born in February 2017 and she is a miracle, one that I genuinely believe would not have been possible without Lyn’s support. I would not hesitate to recommend Lyn to anyone."

Fertility & Maternity Reflexology "I went to Lyn after trying for a baby for a year with no luck. I had already had the usual tests with the dr and there was no reason (according to the gp) why I couldn't conceive naturally but it just wasn't happening. From my first appointment with Lyn I felt at ease. The reflexology sessions were so relaxing and Lyn taught me so much about fertility and what was going on with my body. I cannot recommend Lyn enough for anyone looking for reflexology (especially for fertility issues). She is so kind and was a real support to me during a very tough time. I am now the proud mum to a little boy and I believe Lyn's amazing work is the reason for this. I can't thank her enough and will continue to use her services in the future."
Reflexology to support IVF Treatment "Having made the decision to have IVF treatment, I wanted to give it the best shot possible. I’d done some research and heard that reflexology was beneficial in a number of ways. I found Lyn Franklin on the internet and as soon as I met her, knew I had found the right person to support me through treatment. Lyn took the time to find out all about my situation and explained exactly what reflexology was and how it could help me. She patiently answered all my questions and tailored all her advice to me and my situation.
The treatment itself was fantastic! Incredibly relaxing and allowed me to totally zone out and clear my mind of all the pressures you find yourself under while going through this treatment. With every visit, Lyn would take time to find out how I was and what I needed from that treatment. I was also able to book a couple of aromatherapy back massages with Lyn, which I would highly recommend. She tailors the oils used to you and your specific circumstances and gives a fantastic massage that gets right into the muscles.
My visits to Lyn became a vital part of my treatment. Aside from the physical benefits and the ability to totally relax, I found a confidante in Lyn. I was able to tell her things I didn’t feel comfortable telling anyone else and I always left feeling like a weight had been lifted. Knowing the emotional demands IVF treatment places on you, I can’t imagine having gone through this without having Lyn at my side.
Happily, my treatment worked on my second cycle, but my visits to Lyn will continue throughout my pregnancy and probably beyond."
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/Labour preparation "Absolutely over the moon to tell you that baby Amber arrived this morning at 10:02. I had some contractions last night but then went to sleep. I woke up at 4am and sat on my ball, contractions started pretty soon. They suddenly got stronger at 9:15, we got in the car at 9:45. I almost gave birth in the car park! Thank you so much for working your magic. So grateful."
Fertility & Maternity Reflexology "I started coming to see Lyn in April 2012. I will admit I was slightly sceptical but willing to try anything to help with our efforts to have a baby. Two years later and many, MANY appointments later, I have a beautiful 9 month old daughter and I am pregnant again! I cannot thank Lyn enough. The constant reflexology sessions have not only helped with my cycle but also my pregnancies. Lyn is a wonderful reflexologist but she is also so easy to talk to which enables you to confide in her. With all my friends falling pregnant at the drop of a hat I didn't feel comfortable talking to them about our struggles to have a baby and the fertility tests but Lyn was so supportive, helpful and incredibly kind. I think my favourite appointment has to be when I told Lyn I was pregnant for the first time - she was so happy for me and I really felt like she had been there every step of the way!"
