Gemma Ireland (MAR) founded Bodyflow with Rachel Whiteside (LSSMDip) in 2001. They originally set Bodyflow up as a corporate chair massage business, providing Japanese acupressure massage to corporate businesses in London and Nationwide. In 2003 Rachel left the UK to set up Bodyflow in Zurich, a clinic that offers a range of massages and cranio sacral therapy.
Whilst providing chair massage for corporate clients still remains a core part of the business, in 2003 Gemma launched 'Bodyflow ultimate health and well-being' services for private clients. This side of the business grew very quickly and now supplies a professional team of therapists, practitioners and teachers in the comfort and ease of people's own homes.
Bodyflow has had remarkable results with some of the following problems: asthma & sinusitis, structural problems, chronic fatigue, insomnia, depression, digestive problems, IBS, blood pressure balancing, lymphatic drainage, menstrual, menopausal problems, migraines and headaches, panic attacks, anxiety, priming labour (induction), post natal recovery, skin disorders, sports injuries and stress.
Gemma and her team's expertise and confidentiality has earned Bodyflow an extensive client list that ranges from A-list celebrities and supermodels to exhausted city workers and housewives.

"Knocked out by Bodyflows matchless Reflexology skills. Highly recommended if you need the world to STOP for a few hours!"
Kate Shapland, Beauty and Health Columnist for the Telegraph
"Seeing Gemma weekly pre and during my pregnancy has made all the difference in my pregnancy, health and wellbeing. Her magic hands helped with all my symptoms, to feel energised, restored and in balance. She has a wealth of knowledge and a caring approach to help with absolutely anything. I couldn't have done without her and hope to see her weekly for reflexology forever!"
Christiane Duigan, Bodyism
"I used Gemma's reflexology sessions in the lead up to giving birth and not only were my treatments incredibly relaxing, but they WORK! I have no doubt that because of them my birth was much quicker and easier and then afterwards she helped my body recover. I cannot recommend them enough!"
Madeleine Thompson, Fashion Designer
Gemma has an amazing gift which helps me relax and sleep better after even the most hectic of days and weeks through her unique reflexology skill. I have tried many different practitioners over the years, but Gemma and Bodyflow really stand out with what they can do.
Wendy Becker, Chief Executive at 'Jack Wills'
Gemma is the real thing the best of the best!
@BodyflowLimited thank you for such an amazing reflexology treatment I feel relaxed and balanced X
I am so grateful I stumbled across this post and Gemma's work. I started seeing Gemma in December with mild PCOS and nearly 3 years of trying for a baby with a history of ectopic pregnancy. I was always a bit skeptical about reflexology having tried it with a non-fertility expert practitioner a few years ago. However, I am nervously excited to say I am sitting here 7 weeks pregnant and a scan showing the baby in my womb with a heartbeat. I never thought I would ever make it this far and I know it is super early days still and anything can happen but I am feeling so much more positive about the future. I will continue to see Gemma and would recommend anyone who is in my position to look at the benefits of reflexology when you're told your only option is IVF.

Gemma saw me throughout my whole pregnancy and post my birth, helping me with nausea, stress aches and pains whilst pregnant and getting the drugs out of my system and adjusting me after the birth. She is heaven and worked wonders rebalancing me. Her treatments always left me feeling so happy and zen. She's a reason to get pregnant again!

"I heard about Gemma through Madeleine Shaw's blogpost about PCOS and infertility. My own struggles to get pregnant started nearly three years earlier with an ectopic pregnancy, early miscarriage and my periods stopping. I started seeing Gemma for regular reflexology sessions in early December 2015 and altered my nutrition and lifestyle from her advice. In January 2016 I found out I was expecting. I couldn't believe it; I was scared and excited all at the same time. The Early Pregnancy Unit confirmed I had a baby with a gorgeous heartbeat in my uterus and that I had even ovulated from the ovary that didn’t have a fallopian tube! Now that little heartbeat is a 10 week old baby! I am truly grateful to Gemma for her restorative, balancing reflexology, compassionate attitude and positivity. I do not believe I would be in this position without her."
