Jae has been a reflexologist since 2005; graduating from The Australian College of Natural Medicine, Brisbane, with a Diploma in Reflexology and a Cert. IV in Swedish Massage.While undertaking the massage course, Jae was introduced to Reflexology and was immediately hooked by this modernized ancient form of healing.
Over the years, she has been thrilled to see positive results through using reflexology as an added tool to a patient’s overall health care regime. She has treated a wide range of people with varying health requirements; from back pain to cancer; during pregnancies to stress management. This non-invasive therapy is not only nurturing but appears to accelerate recovery time after injury.
Jae likes to call herself a Sunshine Coast local, having lived here since 2000. She loves the unique lifestyle that the Sunny Coast offers and enjoys walking the beaches and soaking up the sunshine and salty air.
Having a balanced lifestyle is very important to her and she feels absolute joy to share in the journey of those that are, like her, striving for better health while still occasionally enjoying life’s indulgences.
Think about what your feet go through each day. Standing, walking, jumping, dancing – our feet do it all!
Give your health the kick it needs, start from the feet up!!
Reflexology does not claim to diagnose, cure or prescribe but is based on the principle that there are points on the feet that relate to all of the organs, system and glands of the body.Is Reflexology for you?
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology does not claim to diagnose, cure or prescribe but is based on the principle that there are points on the feet that relate to all of the organs, systems, and glands of the body. When stimulating these points by using specific finger and thumb techniques, the body’s own natural healing process is activated. The body starts to clear blockages allowing it to regain balance, resulting in better health and ultimately, homeostasis.
Homeostasis is the ability of your body to find and maintain a state of equilibrium of stability.
There are many different styles and approaches used in reflexology; however the basic principle is constant. Subtle yet powerful, it is becoming increasingly popular in the world of complementary therapies.

Why try Reflexology?
This holistic treatment may help to facilitate more vital energy, reduce stress, and boost the immune system. Also, it may reduce symptoms of illnesses such as digestive problems, back pain, migraines and headaches, sleep disorders, and hormonal imbalances. It may be useful in pain management, beneficial to pregnant women and also during a detox. The treatment can be pleasurable and extremely relaxing to receive, as well as invigorating and energizing.
It is a safe, natural therapy that can be received by anyone at any age, from newborn babies to those receiving end of life care.
Helping with Stress
Stress is almost unavoidable in modern society. Previously people lived a less intensive lives and followed their internal clock more closely. In recent decades the pace of life has accelerated dramatically and most of us experience our days as an emergency situation, which requires continuous action and no rest. Since there is less time for rest and leisure, we move more and more away from ourselves and become more and more stressed.
Many health problems can stem from stress, and under the influence of prolonged stress the body is less capable of fighting illness. Reflexology may counteract the effects of stress by calming the nervous system, promoting relaxation, and bringing balance to the body.
Reflexology also works to balance the endocrine system and moderate the cortisol-producing adrenal gland which is known to typically go into overdrive during stressful periods. Balancing the adrenal gland can take you out of that lethargic and de-motivated feeling or can help to calm you if you are still under the influence of high-stress.
The systems of the body need good blood circulation in order to function well. Our blood carries nutrients and oxygen to the cells and also removes waste products and toxins. Sluggish circulation can cause oxygen-deprivation in the tissue and this can lead to lowered energy and dysfunction.
The aim of the treatment is to keep the body’s circulation flowing smoothly in order to restore blood flow and increased function.
Detoxify and Cleanse
Ridding the body of waste and toxins is extremely important to your health. A reflexology treatment aims to increase circulatory and lymphatic movement to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to your body on a cellular level. This, in turn, leads to greater energy. Increasing circulatory and lymphatic movement also speeds up the exit of unwanted substances in the body from the appropriate organs. This will encourage the body to naturally restore its own healthy balance. Drinking lots of water is essential to help support this process.
Services & Treatments
What to expect when I go in for a treatment.
On the first visit, Jae will conduct a full personal consultation, taking into consideration your past and present health and lifestyle. Whether you are trying reflexology for relaxation or a desire to reduce symptoms of an illness, a full medical history will be taken. This will enable her to tailor a treatment to your specific needs.
Your privacy is of utmost importance and you can be assured of patient confidentiality.
Clean feet are appreciated!
Jae will then use her hands to apply precise pressure techniques to the feet, treating specific points which correspond to all organs and systems of the body.
Why is more than one treatment often recommended?
If you have been to any complementary health practitioner you may be familiar with the concept of needing to return for a certain number of treatments. The reason for this is that unlike Western medicine, where a prescription medication is designed to stop or suppress certain symptoms, the complementary approach is to kick-start your body’s own innate healing mechanisms.
In today’s society, when everything is available NOW, this approach can sometimes be perceived as a more lengthy process. However, when successfully applied, it is generally the more healthy and ideal path to wellness. Sometimes with more chronic illnesses, over time, medication can start to lose its effect and it is then that it becomes apparent that restarting your body’s own innate healing mechanism is paramount to your well-being.
(In the case of illness, always consult with your doctor first. It is also worth mentioning here that Reflexology is ‘complementary’ which means that it can be used safely alongside conventional Western treatment and is not designed to contradict it.)

Absolutely mind-blowingly relaxing
I was a stressful businessman that needed help
This pregnant Mumma was just sent to her happy place!!! Thanks Jae, that was by far the most relaxed, I have felt in a long time!!
Absolutely mind-blowingly relaxing. Jae is an absolute master with the feet, and was so accurate with picking up ailments within my body, both physically and emotionally. I’ll be back for sure!!!
I’d like to share a wonderful experience I had with the Amazing Jae! This time last year I was having seizure-type episode where my shoulders and neck would twitch and jerk spontaneously. I was told I might have a bacterial infection attacking my central nervous system. One week it got so bad it started to affect my speech. Jae came to give me a treatment and I was a wobbly mess, slurring and looking like a stroke patient. I was having trouble with telling her what was up but she knew something was interfering with my central nervous system.
