“I had a shiatsu treatment with Julie when I was 2 weeks overdue with my first baby... She was so calm, caring and supportive... I would wholeheartedly recommend her as an excellent therapist.” BETHAN
I also offer a two-day private birth preparation workshop, based on hypnobirthing, active birth and acupressure massage, to help you both feel ready, connected and excited about the birth of your baby.
Shiatsu can also help tremendously during the post-natal period:
process the birth
replenish your energy
heal any left over discomfort contracted during pregnancy
smoother hormonal transition
Can help breastfeeding by promoting the smooth flow of milk.
I can also prepare your placenta into capsules and remedies to help you recover more quickly after birth, have a richer milk supply and enjoy higher moods and energy levels in the first few months of having your baby.

"I initially went to Julie for a shiatsu treatment after my newborn experienced a traumatic start in life. I was suffering from anxiety and back ache. She was able to relieve the tension and emotions I was holding onto at a deep level. Her self-care programme really helped me identify practical things I could do to build resilience into my life. I feel like my daily life has been radically transformed after seeing her". ANDREW

"Julie is such a magical shiatsu practitioner. I have been seeing her for several years now – when my body and/or spirit needs some healing, including all through pregnancy. She gives time and attention to listening as well as to touch. She has such an intuitive way of finding what your system needs and bringing energy to the right areas. It’s clear that this comes from her many years of experience as well as the knowledge and wisdom of her deep and kind soul. Whenever I see her she seems to unlock things in me that help my body and emotions to release, to let me go deeper and grow in myself. This has been particularly important throughout my pregnancy, when she has acted as my shiatsu therapist, teacher, guide and guru to motherhood! Her skills and gentle encouraging wisdom have helped me to feel empowered and confident about the journey I am embarking on. It feels like she has been gifted to me throughout this journey. I would highly recommend everyone to go and see her, whether you think you need it or not! Your body and soul will feel freer and stronger for it". CARA
