relax  rebalance  release

about me


I'm Cristina Gomez Martinez, founder and owner of peppermint feet. I have been living in Marlow with my husband for 17 years and our 3 children have the chance to grow in this vibrant town by the Thames. I am passionate about how holistic therapies can rebalance people's life.


Having left my corporate role in pharma to have deep understand of both Western and Eastern approaches to health, I obtained a Diploma in Naturopathy and Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London in 2005.

A few years ago, I got attracted by reflexology and explored the profound and healing aspect of touch.  I am now also a fully qualified Reflexology Practitioner, having trained with the Temple Academy of Reflexology in Milton Keynes,  fully accredited school by the professional Association of Reflexologists. I love the way reflexology can be adapted to the specific needs of each individual and how it can be combined with other modalities to deliver a gently but powerful treatment with lasting effects. So since then, I have undertaken further training about the nervous system and the menopause. I have invested over 100 hours in CPD with Gaia School of Natural Health on how to integrate 40 essential oils safely to my treatments. I trained with Heidi Armstrong in acupressure facial therapy to integrate additional benefits the facial treatments. In 2022, I have completed and enjoyed all the modalities of Gentle Release Therapy which founder Helen Robinson has taught me, allowing me to revive my acupuncture knowledge without using needles! Last year, I have expanded my reflexology by offering ear treatments too, after attending Allison Walker's auricular reflexology and ear seeding course.  And I have been on a journey experiencing a  200 hour Transformational Meditation Teacher training with Vayia Nafees.

I am committed to continuing my learning and research, and I am always looking to integrate new techniques and therapies into my practice.

I can offer consultations in Spanish and French, too, as I am Spanish and a native French speaker. And I have done a small collaboration in the translation of Jane Sheehan's, UK leading foot reader, online foot reading programme  and book The Gurus’ Guide to Reflexology Book 1.

Reflexolgy with Cristina is a truly enjoyable and beneficial experience.  Her initial questions about health and wellbeing enable her to tailor a programme to suit each individual client.  As well as the work on my feet, she gave me tips about my diet and other ways in which I could practise self-care to improve my general health - this was done sensitively and never left me feeling uncomfortable. 

Her skill as a reflexologist was exemplary.  The experience was always enjoyable and the benefits could be felt long after the treatment.  A long-standing pain issue was helped considerably by the treatments and I generally felt my stress and anxieties melt away - I even dropped off to sleep during one treatment.

I highly recommend having reflexology with Cristina and look forward to becoming a regular client, once the restrictions due to the 2020 pandemic are sufficiently relaxed.
