Papillon – Geraldine Chesta - Comfort and Relaxation through touch

Hi, I’m Geraldine and I want to help people feel good through health and wellbeing therapies. I’ve lived in Nottingham since 1999 and am originally from Antibes in the South Of France.

I’ve always had a keen interest in beauty but more recently I’ve developed a stronger interest in the process of healing the mind to heal the body.

Through my own experience with chronic illnesses(MS), I’ve used and discovered the many benefits holistic therapies offer and how important it is to have some ‘me’ time.

I’m happy to have studied in Nottingham and in France to become a fully qualified beauty and massage therapist and Reiki practitioner. Most recently I have qualified in Reflexology in the beautiful settings of Cornwall and I am pleased to be able to offer this treatment at a reduced price for the first few weeks.

With Reflexology, I aim to restore and relax your wellbeing to harmony, maximising your body's wonderful capacity to heal.


By massaging and stimulating the reflex points on the feet, healing is promoted in the corresponding organs of the body. Reflexology works to remove energy blockages to heal imbalances, improve circulation, soothe pain/inflammation, ease tension and promote detoxification. Beneficial for all physical ailments and for maintaining good health.


I carry out my treatments using the wonderful Weleda oil range.

The benefits of holistic therapies are endless because they always work in harmony with a person’s needs.

I also specialise in treating people with care needs and senior citizens because these groups of people, like everyone often need a healing hand.

Please book through my website or call me on: 07707 083249.

  • Reflexology
  • Aromatherapy massage
  • Indian Head massage
  • Full body massage - tailored to your own needs

About Weleda: Strengthening the personal balance between body, mind and spirit. Weleda has been making a valuable contribution to this balance ever since its founding over 90 years ago. In other words: we want you to feel good,in body, mind and spirit. Weleda’s natural and organic cosmetics promote well-being: if you want to stay healthy and fit it is important to feel comfortable in your own skin. We have thousands of different pharmaceuticals available for illnesses and injuries. We rely on the body’s healing and regeneration processes, strengthening the body’s defences and restoring the balance of body, soul and spirit. Weleda’s natural and organic cosmetics and pharmaceuticals are based on an anthroposophical understanding of people and nature, which states that life processes in the human body and nature are similar.

However, for us what goes into the body is just as important as what does not –we constantly avoid the use of synthetic fragrances and dyes, preservatives and mineral oil-based ingredients.

Reflexology Lymph Drainage: Jacqueline Seddon MBRA MA

I trained with the prestigious Bayly School of Reflexology and see many clients in general practice.

However, I have additional post-graduate training in Reflexology Lymph Drainage and Natural Fertility.

Reflexology Lymph Drainage

Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) is an award winning treatment which focuses on stimulating the lymph reflexes on the feet. It is a unique sequence that has been developed and researched by SallyKay BSc (Hons), whilst working with patients who had been treated for breast cancer 


One of the possible areas where damage may occur after surgery or radiotherapy is to lymph nodes: this is called secondary lymphoedema and is defined as tissue swelling where there is failure in lymph drainage. 

Although it is most common in people who have had breast cancer and have damaged/removed axillary (underarm) lymph nodes, it can also happen after other surgeries or trauma. A part of your body - usually your arms or legs, but sometimes, the chest - may become swollen, heavy or infected. A common instance is after hip/knee replacement surgery.

Management is the only solution as currently there is no cure for this awful condition: compression garments, moisturising, avoiding direct heat, cleanliness, skin ‘brushing’ and careful exercises are among the suggestions.

As you might imagine, not only does it change a person’s appearance but it can also cause psychological and emotional difficulties.

There is also Primary Lymphoedema:  a rare, inherited condition caused by problems with the development of lymph vessels in the body, it also responds well to RLD.


Why have Reflexology Lymph Drainage?

Our lymphatic system is an important part of our immune system. The lymph nodes filter the lymph as it flows through them trapping bacteria, debris, dead blood cells, viruses and other foreign substances. Theses are then destroyed by special white blood cells called lymphocytes. By stimulating the lymphatic system to be more active, our immune systems are given a boost.

Excess fluid is decreased and people often remark that their rings or watches are looser. 

There are hundreds of RLD practitioners worldwide and they have reported that it has been shown to be useful for a wide range of auto-immune disorders: fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome/ME, arthritis/rheumatoid arthritis, asthma/allergies, eczema, MS etc.

As RLD also works on the circulatory and digestive systems at the same time, it may also be useful for: IBS, constipation, Crohn’s Disease, Raynaud’s Disease etc.

Further evidence of improvement has also been documented in cases of post-operative swelling e.g. hip replacement, post-flight swollen ankles & legs - a pre-flight treatment reduces potential swelling, muscular tension, aches & pains, headaches, premenstrual syndrome.

The benefits of RLD treatment for people with lymphoedema, include: small compression garments needed after several treatments, fewer infections, improved skin appearance, decreased pain and/or discomfort, better self-confidence.
