Gemma Challis


My name is Gemma Challis and I have been in practice for over 25 years as a Therapeutic and Integrative Therapist specialising in Holistic Pelvic Care™, Caesarean Section Scar Therapy, Fertility & Womb Massage Therapy™, Reproductive Reflexology™, Pregnancy Massage Therapy and Bach Flower Essences; supporting women's health and the life transitions we journey through.


In addition to my therapy work, I teach Holistic Birth Preparation workshops to couples and small groups to encourage working with your body to experience positive labour and birth. I also teach developmental baby massage classes that support parent-child bonding and attachment through touch/therapeutic play for the well-being of mothers/partners and babies.


My work focuses on creating a therapeutic container for you to land into your body where healing and transformation start from the power within.  I believe our body is the healer and often needs to be gently held and listened to to transform. I work with a trauma-informed approach, intuitively and emphatically supporting women through all stages of life from menarche to the postmenopausal years, by offering a diverse range of therapeutic and healing services in an integrative way, to best support and address menstrual and hormonal imbalances, fertility, pre-conception, pregnancy/postpartum care, womb health, baby loss, hysterectomies, peri-menopause/menopause, pelvic floor imbalances and women’s wellness.  


You are also very welcome to come for stress reduction and relaxation, and I can integrate a blend of holistic therapies to support you best.


For as long as I can remember I have been studying subjects such as spirituality, women’s mysteries and natural healing. When I was a teenager my intuition guided me to study Reflexology and I knew I had found my dharma in natural holistic approaches to healing our bodies, minds and souls.  After qualifying in 1997 I worked in a variety of places in London and gained a wealth of experience, I then realised my love of bodywork and undertook additional training. Motivated by the birth of my first child I have a special interest in gynaecological and perinatal care. I’m now a lucky mum to three beautiful children who teach me more about life and myself every day.

I am deeply passionate about women’s health and honoured to be of service to women and their babies, gently guiding women to reconnect with their cycles and listen to the wisdom of their bodies.


My births taught me how beautiful and powerful women’s bodies are and how important it is to listen to our inner wisdom.  I wanted to offer a nurturing space for women to connect with themselves in this way.  I provide supportive holistic therapies, education and self-care, to heal and rebalance the body and mind to achieve the best levels of health, vitality and emotional ease.  As a seasoned practitioner, I have much experience and knowledge in creating a supportive, held space for your healing and well-being where we can work together as a team.


As a seasoned practitioner, I have gained much experience and knowledge in creating a supportive and caring space for your healing and well-being. Working with a heart-centred intuitive approach, I honour your individuality by offering bespoke treatments, blending various techniques and working holistically with all aspects of your being - the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. I consider the whole person and look at the root cause, not just the symptoms, allowing me to work with the body's natural capacity to heal itself and create a tailored treatment plan to your individual needs.


My dedication is to provide a calming and healing experience, whether helping couples become a family, helping women feel vibrant, healthy, and supported through all stages of their lives, nurturing women through pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. I love what I do; it brings me joy and inspires me daily.


As a therapist, I receive ongoing support for regulation from a cranial osteopath / bodyworker / reflexologist and supervision from an integrative psychotherapist.


Kind Words

As to the quality of treatment there is no doubt that Gemma is one of the best I have experienced in many years of treatments all over the world. At another level however there is a quiet healing quality to Gemma’s work that creates an experience that is very special.

Moira Siddons

You had such a profound effect on me at my approach to giving birth. The reflexology session was wonderful but it was also your words and advice on listening to my body and making my own choices during birth that really resonated with me. They were so helpful during my actual birthing process.
