Qualified Medical Herbalist, Nutritional Therapist and Reflexologist

Update April 2020

Due to unforeseen circumstances I am no longer able to take on new clients or to make repeat appointments for established clients. 

I am, however, very happy to continue to support my existing clients with repeat prescriptions on request and will be offering reflexology sessions when this is appropriate within social distancing restrictions.  Please contact me by email on info@judypatterson.co.uk,  in preference to telephone.

Why natural skin care products? Much of what we put onto our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream. Many mainstream cosmetic ingredients, such as parabens,  are now thought to have questionable health effects.  Neal’s Yard Organics offers high quality parabens-free natural toiletries for all the family.
