Jane Robinson

BSc(hons), ITEC, MNIMH

After qualifying in Reflexology in 1995 I began treating people for a variety of complaints using Reflexology to stimulate pressure points located in the feet to clear blockages in energy meridian lines and restore balance within the body. This work made me want to understand in greater depth what actually causes imbalance and disease and to expand my clinical and diagnostic skills.

In 1998 I became a full time student and studied Herbal Medicine at Middlesex University for four years and graduated with honours in 2002.

This comprehensive course provided me with in depth training in pathology, physiology, disease, clinical science, The Material Medica, Nutrition, plant chemistry and Holistic Medicine.

I worked as a practitioner at Neals Yard Therapies in Noting Hill for 4 years before setting up my own clinic in Westcliff. I am very pleased to have now joined Kentes Ltd in Thorpe Bay, where I will be continuing Herbal Medicine, Reflexology and workshops. Please click on Links to find details of workshops.
