1:1 Movement Sessions
My passion is helping people connect with their bodies, and find joy and ease in their movement. Whether you are feeling blocked and tight, or you just want to deepen your experience and practice of the 5Rhythms, a 1:1 session can offer deep insight into understanding the language of your body. Sessions can be done in person, or on Zoom, and are tailored to each individual. Contact Julie for more information, or to book your session.
"I have had the great pleasure of having private 5Rhythms sessions with Julie. She is kind, perceptive and supportive. She uses her amazing intuition to guide you in your process. There is no navel-gazing with Julie - just pure somatic, heart-based expression. I would highly recommend working with Julie."

For many years, I have been drawn to the healing arts. From early on, I have been fascinated with the body, and how we hold all of our past experiences, emotions, and traumas locked in the memory of our muscles. The body has so many stories, waiting to be told, and wanting to be released, if only we can figure out how to unlock this mystery.
My curiosity about the body-mind connection first led me to the path of Jin Shin Do (Way of the Compassionate Spirit). I studied this practice in-depth, which combines Chinese 5 Element Theory, traditional acupressure points and Bodymind Counselling. The early sessions I received on the table were so transformative and healing that I knew I needed to study this path and become a practitioner of it myself. I completed my final exam in 1997, and began a thriving private practice.
Eventually, I found myself wanting to expand my skills and tools that I could offer people in a bodywork treatment. This led me to the Esalen Institute in California, where I completed the Massage Certificate Program (2001). An Esalen Massage is very akin to a Swedish Massage, incorporating long, sweeping strokes, inviting deep relaxation and tension release. To compliment this work, I studied Reiki, receiving my Reiki Level 3.
As a movement and 5Rhythms® dance teacher, I understand the importance of taking care of the body, and I'm passionate about helping people find relaxation, release, and freedom in their bodies through my bodywork sessions. Having been on the dancing path since 2001, I have been studying the body and how it moves for almost 20 years, and now have a wealth of tools in my toolbox to craft extremely unique, personal healing sessions. Each session is tailored to the individual and can incorporate one, two or all of the above modalities. For those who prefer to remain fully clothed, but enjoy deep pressure, and some counselling during a session, they may opt for the Jin Shin Do treatment. Those who like a gentle touch (or even pure energy work) may opt for a Reiki treatment. Those who want a full body relaxation massage with oils may experience and Esalen Massage, and my classic signature massage these days is a combination of all three.
