About Me

I have 13 years’ experience of working in the NHS as a Registered Mental Health Nurse. I decided to leave last year to persue a new career and chose reflexology. The choice was easy as I received reflexology treatments myself that enhanced my general wellbeing. I am constantly amazed and overwhelmed with the ability of reflexology to help and support people. It is a very beautiful therapy and techniques that I have learnt are very light on your feet and hands.

Troedio is a dedicated reflexology practice founded by myself, Anwen Thomas, MAR, CRM5Dip. I have trained to the highest level and standard of reflexology in the UK with the Gaia School of Natural Health, obtaining a Level 5 diploma in Reflexology. I am passionate about my reflexology practice. I am a dedicated reflexologist that does not practice any other modality of therapy. My background helps to provide an in-depth, holistic and individually tailored therapy and experience for you.

I have been taught specific techniques within my training that allow me to tailor the sessions to individual needs.

I am always looking to broaden my knowledge and skills within the field of reflexology and will be attending courses often. Please continue to visit this site for updates on new treatments.

I am a member of the AoR (Association of Reflexologists). Here is my AoR Certificate of Membership.

The Association of Reflexologists is a professional body whose members have been trained to the highest standards, are fully insured and must undergo regular ongoing training and professional development.

I am a member of CNHC (Complementary and Natural Health Care Council). Here is my CNHC Certificate of Membership.

CNHC was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of health practitioners. CNHC’s register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, a body accountable to Parliament.

“My first experience of foot reflexology with Anwen Thomas was great. So great, like it wasn’t from the last one! I am now a regular visitor to Anwen as I always get so much benefit from the treatment.

The silence and peace I feel during the treatment is difficult to explain. The feeling of being in the hands of a professional, safe, wise and friendly person …. who speaks Welsh is extremely valuable. It’s a chance to escape this busy world for a while!

The first treatment was like a full body MOT. The following sessions focused on specific organs of the body that needed attention.

These treatments have undoubtedly given me reassurance and confidence that alternative treatments can offer something different and additional to more conventional treatments.

Everyone has to try this at least once.”
