About Julia

When I was a young girl, I massaged my Mum at night. It felt like forever, but it was something that I enjoyed as it made her feel good. Sometimes she would give me a small amount of money and sometimes my hands would have a lingering burn from the Tiger Balm! Anyhow, I knew I had A LOT of energy in my arms and hands… but didn’t know what to do with it.

Massage wasn’t an occupation when I left high school. I worked on typewriters and then with the technological boom computers – expressing my insane ability to use the energy in my hands through the keyboard. This led to a successful role as IT Manager for a Chartered Accounting firm. It was stressful and rewarding and all was good until I opened my eyes one day and said “I have always had a desire to study massage, I’m going to take some leave from my work and find out more”


In 2002-2003 I undertook a Diploma in Remedial Massage and haven’t look back. It was:

Easy to learn (all that business background did make it easier)
Satisfying – I make people feel better
Challenging, Rewarding and Flexible

That was all good, but I knew there was more! My inquisitive mind had me attending seminars that Naturopaths would go to. I had to know more. In 2009 I enrolled for an Advanced Diploma in Naturopathy, Advanced Diploma in Nutritional Medicine and Advanced Diploma in Western Herbal Medicine. Woooh!!

5 years later I graduated and found that my new skills even enhanced my Remedial Massage skills, and vice versa. This was incorporating a recipe of holistic healing….fantastic!

Now I continue learning and offer these services to you:
