Why choose Castley Treatments?

For many years before I became a pracitioner in complementary medicine I had tried various treatments. It was Reflexology that I found to be so facinating and the most beneficial for my health and wellbeing.

It was incredible that by chance I was given the opportunity to start training in this field back in 1998 and now some twenty years later I still have the privilege of welcoming clients to my practice here at Castley Farm. In 2008 I trained as a Foot Helath Practitioner, a treatment I absolutely love to do.

My practice is based at my home in Castley, which is a small hamlet located between Harrogate and Otley, close to the villages of Huby and Pool in Wharfedale. I live on a dairy farm with my husband Ian. My husband and Son, Richard run the business and Richard also along with his wife Sophie have a Dog kennel and Cattery business.

I also have a daughter, Helen who is married to Robert and they also run thier own respective businesses. Robert is a motor mechanic and Helen is a photograhper (Helenlishmanphotograhpy.co.uk) a business she started some ten years ago.

When I started to train Richard and Helen were aged 11 and 13, now they are married and we have our adorable little ones, Jack, Charlie, to Sophie and Richard and Florence and Frank to Helen and Robert.

As you can see we are a busy family but working from home on the family farm offers a wonderful sense of peace, tranquility and comfort. I work hard to create a professional treatment environment that accommodates both the clinical aspect required for the foot health treatment but also allows the room to be tranquil and restful for relaxation. The treatment couch is heated for extra comfort and often makes it difficult for clients to leave!!

I feel Castley Treatments can offer the whole package to make the experience a truly holistic one and I look forward to welcoming you soon,
