Reflexology in Chippenham

Louise Kempson –  Dip FH MCFHP MAFHP MAR

Managing Director – Reflexologist & Foothealth Practitioner

Louise has worked in healthcare for over 20 years and was a nurse for 17 years. Louise helped Chris with some admin duties prior to his tragic death in November 2018, so had to hit the ground running when she took over the sole responsibility of CK Clinic. Louise had already qualified as a Foothealth Practitioner (Distinction) in 2015, then Louise went on to qualify as a Reflexologist (Merit) in 2021 and again in Indian Head Massage in 2022 so she could do more hands on work within the clinic.

Louise particularly enjoys helping people to feel better whether that is making their toenails more comfortable by cutting them or allowing patients to get a better nights sleep through the power of reflexology. Louise always shared Chris’s passion of creating a friendly affordable multi-disciplinary healthcare clinic in Chippenham incorporating therapies that complement each other. Louise loves the challenge of running the clinic, meeting the patients and has a great team representing Chris’s legacy. Louise likes to keep active in her spare time, play scrabble (once appeared on Channel 4’s Countdown) and to travel.
