I am a PhD researcher from the University of South Australia, also a naturopath and a registered nurse. I am running a survey that aims to gain an understanding of the barriers that complementary and alternative medicine practitioners and researchers from Australia and New Zealand encounter to the conduct and application of research in their professions. This study has Ethics approval. Through your participation, the results can provide future opportunities to examine, measure and understand barriers and help determine enabling strategies. I invite you to participate in this research and disseminate it among your contacts. Survey Link:
Hi Karen, just had my last treatment for a few weeks with Debbie over here in Swindon so am really looking forward to booking in with you on my trip over to Auckland over the holiday period. I will be there till the end of January so should be able to get one treatment in. Will contact you when the festivities are over.
Hi everyone, I’m trying to find the link to the Auricular therapy book that we can download.. I should have saved it at the time but didn’t.. Where can I find it please?
Hi my beautiful friends. It's exactly 18 days ago now that the amazing Karen Middleton shared her ear reflexology tools and techniques with us all in Newry. And what a wonderful weekend it was. In any case, I have an update for you all ... you may or may not remember but that weekend I was tortured with a really dry cough that traditionally would have manifested into a full blown flu, sore throat and 9 times out of 10 progressed to chest infection and a course (or two) of antibiotics to clear it up. Over the weekend my cough remained yet didn't get any worse so that was a bonus. After the wonderful Eveleen Ni Hoileain placed the ear seeds in the relevant places - three things have happened. No 1: On that Sunday night I had the best nights sleep ever in a long long time and my sleep pattern has returned and I wake each morning feeling so rested (I haven't had this feeling for a long time) No 2: my cough remained after the weekend (again it never got any worse). No 3: I was working with a client yesterday and was explaining the seeds and how they worked and went on to show her my own seeds explaining my symptoms and why they were placed where they were. It was only then the penny dropped! I CAN'T RECALL WHEN THE COUGH STOPPED EXACTLY BUT IT WAS IN THAT MOMENT THAT I REALISED .. YOU KNOW WHAT ... I DON'T HAVE A COUGH ANYMORE ... IT'S GONE!!! GONE!!! GONE!!! ye ha! lol .. How amazing is that. Thank you Thank you Thank you :-) 😁💞💕
I attended Karen's Indian Head Massage course held this weekend - I very much enjoyed it. Karen promotes a supportive and caring environment to learn and the ladies who attended were a lovely group of people. I would not hesitate to recommend this course or any other run by Karen - I will be back to learn more. Thank you. Kathleen B
Just did a treatment this afternoon and started with the ears, worked like a charm, :-), then continued with my Zu Qigong, she thoroughly enjoyed it all. Thanks so much for this 5 minute ear routine. Happy Client, Happy Therapist !
Hi Karen, Have you done reflexology on autistic children? If so, do you have any words of wisdom? Trying to do some research as a mom wants to bring her 8 year old son to see me. I am very excited for the opportunity. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Karen's Reflexology Studio is based in the beachside suburb of Browns Bay, Auckland. Providing Foot, Hand and Ear Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, and Ear Candling. Your fully qualified and certified Complementary Health Practitioner is Karen Middleton.

Welcome! My purpose and passion is your wellness and wholeness. I hope to assist you to be the best version of yourself. x Karen x Reflexology is a complementary therapy based on the principle that all the systems of the body are mapped out in reflex points on the feet, hands and ears. Reflexology is a well established holistic therapy which treats the mind and body as a whole to achieve a state of general well-being. An increasing number of people are using this safe, natural therapy as a way of relaxing and harmonising the body. I have completed two diplomas each in Reflexology and 'Anatomy and Physiology' and am a member of Reflexology New Zealand. All RNZ practitioners have satisfied important criteria in relation to professional knowledge, training and continued education, and are bound by the code of ethics and code of practice set down by Reflexology New Zealand.

I don’t think I need to add to this ...

Oooo - Eeee - Ouch!😆 Aaah!☺️

The Shakti Acupressure Mat is a daily self-care tool based on the Indian bed of nails. Whether lying on it or standing on it, thousands of sharp spikes apply pressure to skin and muscles, supporting restful sleep, circulation, relaxation, mental clarity and well-being.

Standing on this prickly mat is especially good for refreshing and stimulating tired feet.

From a reflexology perspective all the reflexes on the feet are being stimulated too, so that’s beneficial for the entire body.

The capacity that our bodies have to heal themselves is so completely undervalued and underutilized, and not always understood. 💙 But give it the right environment and ingredients and it can do just that.

💙 Reflexology provides the environment
💙 To REST and RELAX are the ingredients
💙 The result is to RESTORE

But don’t just take my word for it .... book yourself in for a session with me or a practitioner near you and you’ll see what I mean.

Lydia's Journey to 2 feet on the ground

There are 2 reasons why I’m sharing this page ....

This gorgeous little girl wants to walk on the ground with both of her feet. 👣

And her mother is my client. 💙

For the month of June I will be donating $5 from every single treatment fee to Lydia’s Journey.

Further more any of my clients who give Lydia a donation will receive $5 off their next treatment with me. (Just show me the proof of your donation)

Let’s all help Lauren Golding to help her little girl to achieve the dream of walking on the ground with both of her feet. ✨

x Karen x

This page is to bring awareness of Lydia's condition with PFFD so that we can raise funds to help us get Lydia the surgery she needs in the US.

When the videographer tries out what he’s just filmed!😆He’s a natural!👣

Thank you Cameron and Tyla for once again helping me to make videos. This time for my diploma students.

A reflexology chart is a reflexologist’s map of the body.

Every part of the body is reflected on to whatever area of the body the reflexologist is working on.

Working on the feet is the most frequently used, but the hands, face and ears are also popular surfaces to work.

If you look at a foot reflexology chart it’s actually quite easy to visualize the body mapped out on the surface of your feet; with the toes being your head and neck, the balls of the feet being your chest and shoulder area, the arch of your feet reflecting your abdominal area, and the heels being your buttocks and pelvic area.

Left foot - left side of your body.
Right foot - right side.

There you go, that’s your first lesson in reflexology. 😆

I absolutely love incorporating Ear Reflexology in to my clients’ sessions.

It complements both Foot and Hand Reflexology, and fits perfectly in to an Indian Head Massage.

I regularly see the ear work help people with a wide variety of symptoms, and most frequently in assisting with lowering debilitating pain levels.

I’m so glad the Ear Reflexology was included in my Diploma studies.

Those are the Ear Charts from my studies!

Ahhh .... 🙏♥️

What a pleasure and delight to see these 13 smiley faces (including my own 😄) looking back at me on the computer screen yesterday and today.

For our scheduled April and May Diploma weekends we got together on Zoom for our classes.

Of course meeting virtually does mean that we weren’t able to do the practical aspect of our usual physical time together, but with some readjusting of the planned itinerary for our course we have covered much more of the written work than we would have by now, which means that when we meet up together at the school, we can spend more time focusing on the practical ... which will be heaps of fun!

I wish to congratulate and thank my 12 Diploma students for being so adaptable as we transferred ourselves on to online platforms to be able to continue our studies.

At a time when life itself was throwing many stressors at each one of them, in the form of the potential threat of Covid-19, the uncertainty of jobs and incomes, and the general loaded energy all around us, they tackled new and unfamiliar terrain on technology, and they conquered it!

We plan and hope to meet up all together in Browns Bay once more for our June weekend.

I’ve heard this from every single client that I’ve seen in these two days ....

“Since not being able to receive reflexology, I am more acutely aware of how it benefits me!”

And do you know what, I completely agree. I can’t wait for my first swap session with a fellow practitioner.

It’s great to have that reminder that what you are investing your time and money in, is really good and supportive for your body.

You’ve still got time to join me tomorrow to learn Ear Reflexology.

This is an online course that starts with a Zoom group class. I have scheduled two times ....

Friday 8th May
1pm - 4pm AND 6:30pm - 9:30pm
Time zone in Auckland (GMT+12)

Please read all course information and details on either of the events, under the events tab, and email me quickly.

💻 [email protected]

This is a great opportunity to learn this powerful new skill while so many practitioners around the world are either not able to see clients, or are cautiously starting to work again.

I’m really looking forward to sharing time with you on Zoom tomorrow.

After receiving a number of messages from people in the UK and South Africa, I have added another Ear Course Event that will better suit practitioners in that time zone. I’ll be staying up late and you’ll be getting up early!

If you are keen to do Ear Reflexology training with me, then please read all the course information on either of these events. See if either of the times suit you, and send me an email.

I have a feeling you’ll love the ear work, and I’m really looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with you.

S-T-R-E-S-S is one of the key elements of life! And never has that been truer than at this time.

We do not live in a vacuum. Even during ‘normal’ times we can't avoid stress. It is everywhere. Every one has it.

Stress is the internal response we make to external changes, difficulties and influences.

The stress response is a signal that our body and some of its major systems have been activated to either a fight or flight state. Ready to defend itself or flee.

This is quite ok, and necessary for short periods of time. However, long term existence in this adrenal state is not good. It can cause damage to our bodies, and even disease and illness.

The antidote to stress is relaxation. A deeply relaxed body has the capacity to heal itself.

Reflexology offers the ideal environment for this to occur. Reflexology interrupts the patterns of stress in our bodies and lives.

Reflexology is therefore an antidote to stress. But, don't just take my word for it. Book in for a session with me, or a practitioner in your area. You really deserve it!

Do you listen to your body?
Do you hear its whisperings?
Do you ignore its messages?

Please don’t. 😳

Seek help ... help that will assist you to listen to the whisperings, interpret the messages, and get to the root of a potential problem before your body is required to shout.

Reflexology has the potential to do this, and may be just the right therapy to do this for you.

If you’ve not yet experienced reflexology then seek out a certified practitioner near you and give it a try as soon as you are able to get out and about.

For YOU ..... A Reflexologists Poem from me. 💙

Credit and thanks to one of my reflexology students for the foot design. I give each of my students a foot cut out to doodle on, if this will help their learning style, and she gave me her beautifully doodled foot cut out to keep.

Lotsaluv and blessings from

Rural Reflexology

Please pop over and LIKE a fellow practitioners new page to give it a boost ... Rural Reflexology.

This last month I’ve had the pleasure of mentoring the lovely lady behind this page, as I helped her tackle a number of business issues and launch her business page.

We live over 1000km’s away from each other. 🇳🇿 She lives on the South Island, I’m on the North Island.

We met via Zoom once a week for a good conversation, and each had our ‘homework’ to complete between meetings.

The timing of the start of this process was extremely synchronistic, as she approached me out of the blue, just as I was preparing to broadcast my availability to mentor. So I am very grateful for this opportunity to mentor her and launch that aspect of my own business too.

The mentoring process can be a valuable way to launch your new reflexology practice, boost a sluggish one, or simply just assist you to re find your sparkle.

With the ease of online communication tools, you don’t need to be in the same city, or even the same country as your mentor. There are some fantastic Reflexology Business Mentors here in New Zealand, and all over the world.

But, it is important that they are the right one for you!

If you think I might be the right Business Mentor for you then please contact me ... And let’s see!

Ear Massage while walking

Yesterday I did a little experiment on our daily walk.🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️

I gave myself an ear massage!👂🏼

I have to tell you that I could not believe the results. And almost instantaneous too.

My thought to try this happened at about 6.5km in to our walk.

You know how some days the body is just not feeling quite in to exercising ... Well, I was feeling tired at this point, some muscles were aching, and mentally I was just ‘over it’. ☹️

Anyway, as I said already, I could not believe the results. In fact I was so impressed with the change I felt, that I passed my phone to my husband and asked him to take the little video for me.

I felt suddenly more energized, both physically and mentally. The muscular aches that were niggling, were gone, and I felt as though I had more breath capacity.

I’d love to hear your experiences if you try this.

It’s probably best to NOT walk in the middle of the road as I did .... though there’s not much traffic at the moment during our lockdown. 🔒

Look at this amazing message that I received today, from someone on the other side of the world from me, after they saw my Ear Reflexology Massage Video post yesterday. 🌎

I am very grateful that this mum and son messaged me, and gave me permission to share that message with you.🙏

I have never worked on someone with Tourette’s, so this is such a valuable learning opportunity for me, and maybe for you too.📝

Isn’t it simply wonderful to hear that massaging his ears helped him to feel calmer?☺️

I invite you to share this post, my original post, or even just the video link with anyone that you feel would benefit in this way from doing the easy technique that I demonstrate in the video.👂🏼

Here’s a link to my video on You Tube. 🎥
