Peace, tranquillity and deep relaxation…
… Experience rejuvenating therapies in the lodge by the lake…
… unwind, lose the stress and ease those aching muscles
Hi, I’m Julie Fox. I am a holistic therapist established in the area since 2000, with a wealth of experience, and receiving high praise from many clients for my ability to improve health and well-being through all the treatments offered. I firmly believe that stress is the root cause of many illnesses in modern society, and by reducing stress it is often possible to reduce the chances of illness and immobility. My treatments aim to ease stress and tension, relax, rebalance and recharge body and mind. In doing so, is it possible to reach a more focused and comfortable level of existence, where challenges become more manageable.
I had an interest in body work and healing from an early age. I began my training with Beauty Therapy (incorporating Swedish massage) but this did not seem to provide enough to address the deeper issues related to stress and tension. In my search for something more holistic, I discovered Reiki, a method of hands on healing to bring about deeper well-being and balance in the body’s systems. Gaining the first two degrees, I began practising on friends and family with encouraging results.
Inspired, I searched for other treatments to combine with and complement the skills I had gained, over the coming years going on to qualify in Reflexology, achieving the level of Reiki Master, and gaining certificates in Remedial Massage and Indian Head Massage.
Over this period, I gained considerable recognition in my abilities finding many of my clients through word of mouth alone. However, there seemed to be a distinct lack in local services when it came to treatments for pregnancy. At a time in a woman’s life when massage was perhaps most important, it appeared that many therapists in the area either were reluctant to treat pregnant ladies for fear of harm to the mother or baby, or simply didn’t correctly understand the needs of the pregnant body. I was overjoyed to find a talented and experienced trainer, Suzanne Yates of Well Mother, to train me in shiatsu based massage specifically designed for this purpose, offering a chance for expectant mums to feel relief from the physical strains and mental stresses of pregnancy.
To enhance the massage experience, following my love and personal use of essential oils, I moved into the field of Aromatherapy to offer treatments with brilliant, longer lasting effects for all clients, including expectant mums, babies and children.
My determination to further develop the deeply therapeutic treatments I offer, and my continuing desire to expand my knowledge have led me to begin studying CranioSacral Therapy with Upledger Institute UK, and I have successfully begun incorporating some of these techniques into bespoke treatments adapted for clients needing a more specific plan and outcome. Additionally, I also now offer Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD) treatments; a therapy developed by Sally Kay to address lymphoedema issues experienced post-operatively from lymph node removal, specifically following breast cancer but also other causes.
As a Reiki Master I was often being asked if I also teach healing, so I now offer Reiki training as an evening course for anyone who may be interested up to Master level. Please see the relevant page for training dates or contact me for Reiki Master training.
I often get enquiries from new clients looking to treat ongoing conditions with therapies to complement and support their medical treatment and I am happy to adapt my treatments, where necessary, to ensure a successful and deeply healing outcome. I continue to have encouraging results treating clients suffering with diabetes, celulitis, Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH), fused vertebrae, depression, anxiety, stress, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), sciatica, fibromyalgia and cancer.
