After studying massage therapy in the 1990s, Julie experienced a range of natural and traditional therapies but was often discouraged with the results, or disappointed with the number and frequency of treatments needed to address musculoskeletal issues. That was until Julie tried Bowen and experienced sustained results for several longstanding issues, including seemingly unrelated issues, and within just a couple of treatment sessions. From this, Julie undertook intensive studies to become a Bowen practitioner and has since attained the Master level of Bowen qualifications.

Key area of interest - stress and anxiety:

From personal experience, and from working with people from all walks of life, Julie understands how stress can impact us physically and emotionally, and can work closely with clients to identify their stress and anxiety triggers, and the aggravators of their pain and dysfunction.

To help people back onto the road to improved health and wellbeing, Julie delivers Bowen treatments in relative silence – providing the time and space for the client’s nervous system to relax - helping the body back to its preferred and relaxed state. A sustained reduction in stress is something that everyone can experience with Bowen, even from the first session.

Key area of interest - pain relief, support for recovering from illness, and body re-alignment:

Julie can use Bowen to assist clients with recovery from injury or illness, to provide support through difficult times, to improve fertility for women and couples, and for the occasional maintenance session for balancing of the mind and body to help maintain optimal health and vitality.

Julie also specialises in TMJ disorder, and disorders of the nervous, reproductive and digestive systems, and can also work with other allied health professionals to support clients with complex medical and/or psychological issues.

Key area of interest - relaxation and rejuvenation:

Bowen sessions can also be used as a special treat or given as a thoughtful gift - as clients often say Bowen is the most relaxing and rejuvenating natural therapy they have ever experienced.
