My name is Lisa McKenna, I am clinic based and also offer mobile treatments in the Norwich and South Norfolk area, including Bungay.
Since I discovered the many benefits of this wonderful therapy I have become passionate about sharing it with others. I have been practicing as a reflexologist since early 2017 following a twenty year career in NHS mental health services. I am continually updating and increasing my knowledge as a reflexologist as I am committed to providing the best quality service to all my clients.
Reflexology can be particularly effective in treating stress-related disorders and may also be helpful during those times when we are experiencing big changes and feel the need to ground and protect ourselves a bit more than usual. Reflexology is an holistic therapy, and aims to treat the whole person, not the condition. Treatments can boost a sluggish immune system and stimulate the body's innate healing ability by improving circulation, reducing tension, pain and supporting and helping to restore natural balance. Reflexology can also support the management of chronic health conditions.
I have over twenty years experience working in the NHS and Local Government in Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol services as a Social Worker, Manager and Professional Lead. I have always been interested in complementary therapies and holistic health and have found that the knowledge and skills I gained during my social work career, contribute to and greatly enhance, my reflexology practice. I also have training in counselling skills and am committed to enabling others to unlock their potential and find the tools within to support their own growth and healing.
Since qualifying as a Reflexologist in April 2017, I have also taken further courses in:-
Corporate Reflexology October 2017,
Aromareflex January 2018
Reflexology for Women's Health July 2018,
Limbic Reflexology April 2019,

During Summer 2019 I worked for a day a week at a local mental health resource providing reflexology to clients, many of whom experienced homelessness and addiction problems.. I also treated NHS staff in 2019 and early 2020 at the local Mental Health Foundation Trust as part of their staff wellbeing project.
I completed a Covid19 Course for Therapists on the 26th May 2020. This includes updating paperwork, risk assessment and clinic management, including mobile treatments. I am confident I can deliver treatments in a post covid world in a safe, aware and professional fashion. I take guidance from the government guidelines and from our professional body, the Association of Reflexologists (AOR).
