Rob Buckle (MAR/ADPR/BA Hons)
ITEC qualified Reflexologist, Stress Management Consultant, Reiki Master, Advanced Hypnotherapist and Practitioner of Massage Therapies
I established Solihull Holistic Health in 2008 after initially qualifying as a Reflexologist. I have since invested a great deal more time and money in training in other therapies and continual professional development, to become the best holistic/natural therapist that I can be. I have responded to the needs of the people I have worked with and am now confident that the therapies I offer are able to effectively address all manner of issues associated with the mind, body and spirit.
If your instinct tells you ‘something is not quite right’, need to manage your stress levels more effectively, feel that pharmaceutical treatments are not working for you, or just need a helping hand to conquer a long-standing issue, it’s about time you gave me a call! I can be most easily reached on my mobile phone: 07738938342. If I am unable to take your call immediately, I will promise to call or message you back within 24 hours (usually much less).

Reflexology - The most popular treatment at Solihull Holistic Health. It is a fabulous and powerful treatment that can be used as an aid to the healing of all manner of conditions of a physical and emotional nature. Whether you are in need of stress release or have a specific health condition, reflexology can be a highly beneficial treatment. Solihull Holistic Health now also offers Aroma-Reflexology, which is a slightly longer and more luxurious treatment, which includes the use of essential oils, blended in a smooth, natural massage wax. Please see the Reflexology page for more details.
Facial Reflexology A new treatment at Solihull Holistic Health, but already a favourite with many clients (especially the ladies), who like the duel benefits of it improving skin tone/ facial appearance as well as their general health. A deeply relaxing treatment in itself and one that can be easily and effectively combined with other treatments, such as Indian Head massage or foot reflexology. Find out more about this wonderful treatment on the Facial Reflexology page.
Fertility Reflexology One of Rob's Reflexology specialities is 'Fertility Reflexology', meaning he has taken additional training to gain the necessary knowledge and expertise to be able to offer specialist support to couples looking to conceive, women in pregnancy and women wanting to induce labour. This is a slightly different, more specialist type of reflexology that has had some incredible results with clients. Read some of the amazing success stories on the Fertility Reflexology page.
Stress Management - A truly holistic approach to regaining health and well-being. The aim is to resolve stress issues through a structured programme, designed to look at the whole person, get to the root of the issue(s) and work towards living a life without stress. A treatment plan may include several different therapies. Please see the Stress Management page for more details.
Relaxation/Taster Sessions Not sure which treatment or combination of treatments to go for? Solihull Holistic Health offers the opportunity to try 2, thirty minute tasters, for the introductory price of £35. This is a great way to try the therapies before committing to a course. It can also be treated as a highly relaxing and therapeutic 'pamper' session, if that is what you want. Choose from:
Indian Head Massage
Thai Seated Back Massage
Better still, come with a friend/partner/relative! Take turns to try one taster at a time and enjoy a sociable occasion too!
*Gift vouchers for the above available*
Free 30 minute Consultation
It can be a big step to seek therapy and choose an appropriate therapist to help you make changes to your life. It can also be somewhat confusing in terms of which therapy to choose to help you the most. For that reason, Solihull Holistic Health offers you a FREE 30 minute consultation, so that you can discuss, without pressure or obligation, all possible options. It is also a chance to meet the therapist and see the treatment room/facilities.

FAQs/What to Expect if you book a treatment
As well as a thorough, professional treatment, you can expect a warm welcome and a personalised service from myself (Rob), that sets Solihull Holistic Health apart from other multi-treatment 'centres', spas and salons. I take customer care very seriously and every client is valued as a special guest in my home. The treatment room is fully equipped and roomy enough for all the therapies offered - see below for more details. The treatment room (and house in general) is prepared appropriately for every individual client. Toilet facilities are available on the ground floor, if needed. Parking is available, on the drive between 10am and 4pm or directly outside or near the property at other times. Please also see SAFE ENVIRONMENT special measures for all of the new, additional safety measures that will be taken to ensure a safe environment for all.

For further details, please call Rob Buckle on 07738938342 or see the information on the individual pages of the respective therapies.
Is there parking available ?
Yes. Dene Court Road is a relatively quiet street, so parking is usual possible right outside or very close to the property. If the drive is free, there is usually space for one car for a few hours between 10am and 4pm each day.
Is Solihull Holistic Health a large centre?
No. Solihull Holistic Health is a trade name that describes the services I provide. I work from home, but have a full dedicated, fully equipped treatment room, that is at least as comfortable as any 'centre' treatment room, with a great aspect to the rear of the property.
How early should I arrive before my appointment?
It is best to arrive as close to your appointment time as possible, as I may have other clients booked in either side of your appointment. The treatment room needs to be fully prepared for each client prior to the treatment, so if clients arrive more than a few minutes before the appointment time I may not be ready and there is no waiting room or receptionist!
What happens if I have booked an appointment and can not attend? Will I have to pay the full fee?
No. Provided you give ample notice, which is usually around 24 hours or as much as is possible in the light of emergencies etc. If you have booked an appointment and do not attend without notice, you will be asked to pay, as you have booked my time and caused me a great deal of inconvenience as well as often depriving others of the opportunity to book a treatment at that time.
Customised Treatment Plans
Not sure which therapy is best for you? Flexible and open-minded enough to do what is necessary to get your self sorted? Let me tailor a health/treatment programme for you!
With my experience and the range of therapies I offer, I will be able to work out a treatment plan with you and advise you on the best therapies to combine, when to switch and how often to have particular treatments. I can also advise you on lifestyle changes that may be necessary, including diet and supplements that may benefit you.
My Stress Management Treatment Programme is a perfect example of a customised programme that is designed with the overall purpose of conquering the issues that may be negatively affecting your life on an emotional and physical level. A typical plan may include hypnotherapy, relaxation techniques and holistic treatments such reflexology, Reiki and Indian head massage.
Below is a short video testimonial from Senior Property Developer, Richard, who describes the positive and life changing results that Solihull Holistic Health's Stress Management Programme has had on his life - and includes his experiences of hypnotherapy, reflexology and Thai back massage.
Other examples of customised plans may include: Reiki, Indian Head Massage and Hypnotherapy, over a number of treatment sessions, to help a combination of physical and emotional issues in one client.
Or, you could combine Reflexology, Pain Genie and Indian Head Massage in a course for more complex, pain-orientated physical issues.
There are various other combinations that could work for you, but the main aim of everything I do is to advance you to where you want/need to be, in terms of your health and well-being, as quickly as possible, so that you can be at your very best.
So if you would like to discuss a customised health programme, I offer a free 30 minute consultation, which can be done in person, at the Solihull Holistic Health clinic, over the phone or on Skype. Call the number below to make an appointment.

About Solihull Holistic Health
Solihull Holistic Health was established in 2008 by Rob Buckle (MAR/Reiki Master and GHR member) and is located in the leafy suburb of Olton, Solihull. It is easily accessible from Solihull, Olton, Shirley, Knowle, South Birmingham and many other parts of the West Midlands. Treatments are usually done at 34 Dene Court Road in Olton, but home visits can be arranged, if necessary, to do treatments at clients' premises, in surrounding areas, such as Olton, Knowle, Dorridge, Shirley and South Birmingham.
Although based in Rob's family home, there is a dedicated treatment room at the rear of the property, which is private, not overlooked by other properties and with beautiful garden and sky views. Clients often remark upon its tranquil ambiance, which makes an ideal healing environment.
About Rob Buckle (MAR, GQHP/ADPR, Reiki Master, BA Hons)
I discovered the benefits of natural/holistic health in 2007, in an effort to stem a lifetime migraine issue. My doctor advised me to take pain-killers, as there was, apparently, ‘nothing else’ that could be done! I began researching ‘alternative’/ holistic health remedies and found a world of new possibilities. For example, I discovered that reflexology has been known to help with migraines and ease stress, so I decided to book a course of treatments with a reflexologist who had been recommended to me. A few short weeks later my life had changed! The migraines almost completely stopped and my energy levels improved no-end! I was so impressed I decided to train as a reflexologist!
Most of my previous career had been spent in teaching (adults mainly), so stress and had always been a factor in my life! I was made redundant twice within 4 years at one stage of my career, which caused me a great deal of stress and anxiety for a prolonged period, affecting my health adversely – particularly the debilitating migraine headaches. I have since found my own healing and ways to deal with stress and anxiety and I believe my experiences give me the knowledge and empathy needed in order to help others with similar issues.
My own journey has allowed me to see first-hand the effects of a stressful life on health, but also how holistic therapy can help in the healing process. Since qualifying as a Reflexologist I have undertaken a considerable amount of further training to add depth and variety to my healing skills. For example, I have trained in Reiki and reached Master Level in 2010, I trained in Hypnotherapy and reached Advanced Practitioner level in 2015 and I have most recently qualified as a Stress Management Consultant. I, therefore, now feel fully equipped to offer a variety of treatment solutions to help clients with the vast majority of conditions that they present me with.
Since discovering holistic health I have realised that my true passion in life lies with natural health rather than for teaching and in 2015 I finally made the transition from teacher to natural health practitioner. I now work on a full-time basis at Solihull Holistic Health, am completely committed to helping the clients that come my way - and couldn't be happier!

The Treatment Rooms
Although Solihull Holistic Health is a home-based practice, there is a dedicated and fully-equipped treatment room that is separated from the rest of the house.
2 Lafuma reclining chairs - one is the latest (2019) model, the Lafuma 'Air Comfort' recliner - which is probably the most comfortable chair you will ever sit/lie in!) - and the other is the Lafuma XL Recliner (2019 model), which is a larger style chair, ideal for people who need a longer or wider chair. These chairs are ideal for reflexology and hypnotherapy
An adjustable, padded, full size massage couch for Reiki, Pain Genie treatments and reflexology (if preferred).
An adjustable back massage chair, for the seated Thai Back Massage
A comfortable, padded chair, with a low back for Indian head massage
A second treatment room is also on permanent standby. This room is smaller, but more sound-proofed (from external noise) and better shaded from the sun and can be made available on request. The treatment rooms (and house in general) is prepared appropriately for every individual client.
See pictures below of the treatment rooms at Solihull Holistic Health. The first one shows the Large (Lafuma) reclining chair, the Indian head massage chair, the Thai Seated Back Massage chair and the Reiki couch (folded).
SAFE ENVIRONMENT Covid 19 special measures from 4th July 2020
I line with recommendations from the government, The Association of Reflexologists and The General Hypnotherapy Register, Solihull Holistic Health/Rob Buckle Hypnotherapy will be implementing the following measures to ensure a safe environment that reduces the possibility of the spread of infection.
• A risk assessment done with each client prior to a treatment. Clients displaying any symptoms of Covid 19 will not be able to attend an appointment
• Additional cleaning of all surfaces in the treatment room, including treatment chairs and couch, will be done with disinfectant wipes prior to every client appointment
• An air purifier and essential oil diffuser in the treatment room will be on throughout the session to keep the air clean and fresh
• At least 30 minutes will be allowed between each client to allow for appropriate cleaning and refreshing of the room to take place
• Clients will be encouraged to bring their own water and blankets (if required)
• Hand sanitiser will be available for client use
• Social distancing protocols will be observed wherever possible
Still worried about booking an appointemnt, due to Covid 19? Here are some facts to ease your concerns...
• The World Health Organisation (WHO) stated in June 2020 that the likelihood of someone who is asymptomatic spreading the virus is ‘rare’.
• An independent study into infectivity of 455 asymptomatic Covid 19 carriers, concluded that the evidence of the virus being transmitted to others was ‘weak’ (you can read the full report of the study here: pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32513410/
• The CV 19 infection-to-death rate is approximately 0.28% for the general population. That is a survival rate of 99.72%!
• Of those who died after contracting CV 19, at least 89% had known serious underlying health conditions that they were already being treated for (some studies place this as high as 99%)
• By far the highest risk category for Covid 19 is the over 70s age group and it is only considered life-threatening to them if they have at least one serious, underlying health condition that has weakened their immune system.
• The CDC stated in June 2020: “While the percentage of certified deaths related to Covid 19 is still above the epidemic threshold, it is now similar to what has been observed at the peak of some flu seasons”.
The best defence against Covid 19 and any other viral infection is a healthy immune system. Having a regular holistic health treatment is one of the best ways to boost your immune system, together with a healthy lifestyle, which should include natural supplements, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Magnesium
