Nafisa has been a therapist since 2000. She has always had an affinity for natural living and has enjoyed the wonders of complementary therapies early on in her life. As a child conventional medicine was the way to go, mum taking the usual medicine for menopause, if you had a headache, tablets were the thing to take. Falling down the stairs as a child, 1/2 a headache tablet and a tetanus shot(and a glass of water)! Blood pressure tablets etc etc! Surely this was not the only way to look after your body? There must be a balance!
Her first experience of reflexology in a little hippy part of Devon changed her life to as it is now. The treatment was an emotional and relaxing experience at the same time. Could pressing your feet really help the mind, body and soul?. She was so taken by the treatment that after leaving Devon she studied reflexology in London, and spend many years working alongside some great reflexologist and body workers in Bayswater and Chelsea, her thirst to know more grew over the years.
Found in the idyllic suburb of Teddington, Nafisa Therapy has a holistic healing space, providing a natural, effective approach to traditional health & wellbeing. Set inside Nafisa’s meticulously presented garden room you are transported to world of calm, bliss and balance.
Tranquil and relaxing, Nafisa has created a secluded space for you to unwind in comfort. Focusing on healing and balancing the body, she offers a vast array of treatments, ranging from specialised maternity reflexology to classic full body massages. Believing in the benefits of holistic treatments, as well as the results they achieve, Nafisa provides a professional, comprehensive and safe experience to refresh and recharge your body.
All the treatments Nafisa offers complement each other, and work at healing and balancing the body, working with nature in the best possible way. She has been taught by some of the best in their field, Peter Walker with his amazing knowledge with babies and special needs, Susan Enzer midwife and maternity reflexologist and Katherine Graves and Marie Mongan experts in the field of Hypnobirthing.
She is happy to treat all family members, but since becoming a mother her work has become more pregnancy and maternity focused with maternity reflexology and pregnancy massage, baby massage and baby yoga classes. Also meeting mums wishing to have a safe and comfortable birth has led Nafisa to explore the world of Hypnobirthing. Its not so “tree huggy”as it sounds, and no she will not send you off in a trance!
“I truly believe in the benefits of holistic treatments and the results that it achieved in the people I treat. I offer a professional, comprehensive and safe approach to all my treatments ensuring my clients receive the best possible care and advice”.

Nafisa possesses a unique combination of ability and tranquility. In addition to her knowledge, technique and skills, Nafisa has the gift to impart soothing energy. For me, a treatment with Nafisa has a calming effect and restorative results. I’ve tried all the rest and I was lucky enough to find the best.
As a lupus sufferer (an auto-immune disorder), my ailments aside from malfunctioning organs which are the mainstay of this disease are many including arthritis, chronic fatigue, depression, acid reflex, digestion difficulties, dry eyes, mouth and skin, sleep disturbances, rashes and skin ailments, sun and heat allergies as well as a myriad of other niggling disorders that won’t kill me but make life extremely difficult. Whilst some individual ailments can be specifically treated, Lupus itself has no cure as there is no treatment for an immune system that targets an individual’s organs.
Reflexology was suggested to me by my Lupus specialist who found that many of his patients has benefited from this form of treatment. A good friend recommended Nafisa as a truly talented and gifted healer. I gave her a call and I have been having reflexology treatments from her for 2 years. Nafisa has not only transformed my mobility and general well being but she has also given me the most important thing of all……. hope.
After spending 3 years only between bed and sofa and not having a life, since beginning treatments, I am now mobile, have returned to work, part time and am able to enjoy a social life once again. My husband has been so impressed by my progress that he too has a weekly treatment just to maintain his general well being.
When I had just had my baby, Nafisa was an essential part of helping me feel better and well in myself again. 9 months on I still won’t see anyone else but Nafisa! She is a highly professional and skilled therapist with extensive knowledge of massage techniques. She has even helped relieve my carpal tunnel pain. Having paid a lot more for less elsewhere, I can vouch for the value for money and the excellent service that I know I wouldn’t be able to find elsewhere.
Taken from her email after the birth: ….. In labour on Wednesday after our session!!
“I had my little girl on Saturday, her name is Daphne and she is gorgeous! Thank you so much for all your help, I really think that reflexology helped me relax and prepare (and probably my uterus as well as contractions started on my due date!) Take good care and thanks again!”
” I was recommended by my osteopath to have regular massage to help ease muscle tightness and knots. I have been having massage for a number of weeks now with Nafisa and it’s been really helpful. The pressure is just right to be both relaxing and pleasant experience whilst working on deep tissue. The technique is lovely and just right to ensure I feel completely relaxed which other massage therapists have not managed to achieve quite the same.”
‘ Nafisa’s baby massage classes are both fun for baby as well as us Mums. Nafisa week by week teaches us the skills to massage our babies with confidence. Whether our babies are suffering with teething, an upset or windy tummy or cold and congestion Nafisa has some great massage techniques to help deal with these. Weekly written and illustrated guides for all the massage taught, are great to use at home for reference and reassurance’.
Nafisa’s teaching style is warm, gentle and encouraging and she has the innate ability to read the mood of the room, making babies and mummies feel completely relaxed and confident. The full massage routine was built up over the course, recapping the previous weeks, and was easily remembered due to the pairing with familiar nursery rhymes. She makes the course fun and encourages mummies to ask questions, share experiences, laugh and bond in those early days of motherhood. The group of women I met on the course still meet for a weekly coffee! The reminder sheets given each week have helped me to teach the techniques to my partner and Morgan’s nightly bath time massage has become regular Daddy bonding time, which is the highlight of the day.
“I highly recommend a treatment with Nafisa, her massages are excellent and have really helped with my back problems. I always leave feeling de-stressed and relaxed. Nafisa’s garden room is very peaceful and tranquil, the perfect place to unwind.”
“I had a number of massages with Nafisa. She creates a warm professional environment where I felt relaxed and in competent hands. She is focused on the work she does and has an extensive knowledge of her field. Highly recommended. Thank you Nafisa. ”
Nafisa has an amazing hands. Just one massage session with Nafisa brought me into a complete state of relaxation and mindfulness. Would highly recommend her.
I can recommend Nafisa if you are looking for a good Reflexologist. She really “tunes in” with the patient.
Thank you so much, Nafisa!
Thank you Nafisa.
The kids are still in blissful awe of their treatment.
‘Nafisa is a miracle worker. I have just completed the marathon and do lots of running. Today she managed to unravel my tight muscles and I can now move more freely and without as much pain. It was the most relaxing hour, despite her having to work pretty hard on my back and legs and I would thoroughly recommend her should you have any post-run muscle soreness and need a good deep tissue massage.’
