Welcome to Balance & Sole

Welcome to Balance and Sole, my little corner of the world where I share my passion for all things well-being. My name is Suzy and I am a qualified Reflexologist, Pilates Teacher and life coach.  I relocated from London back to my home county of Essex a few years ago and excited to be bringing my practice to you, locally and online.

They are the headlines, so here’s a bit more detail.

Before training as a reflexologist, I used to work in marketing for a publishing company then I decided that I needed a change so started my business offering Reflexology and massage, swiftly adding Maternity Reflexology to my repertoire.

As my little one and my business grew, so did my backache! I found I was turning more and more to Pilates to keep me going. I took the jump and started my Pilates Instructor training and qualified in 2016. I have taught a variety of classes and 121s. I aim to launch an online studio in late 2023, so watch this space!

Initially I built my business in London, but we knew our longer-term plan was to move to Essex. Skip on a few years, some big life stuff and a pandemic – I’m now excited to bring my Reflexology practice to The Manor Health and Wellness Centre in Colchester. https://www.themanorhealthandwellness.co.uk/therapies/reflexology/

I also offer coaching – you can find out more here…https://www.lifecoach-directory.org.uk/lifecoaches/suzanne-shand

I am committed to continual professional development and look forward to sharing what I learn with you on my social media pages (mostly Instagram).
