Julia Rowntree
Essence of Touch

Specialising in the link between physical and emotional holding in the body, but also addressing diet and heavy metal toxicity, Julia’s aim is, through the medium of a “lovely massage” or a safely held space for emotional release, to bring clients into balanced and spiritually grounded, physical and emotional wellbeing.

“Julia’s light touch goes deeper than a deep tissue massage. It nourishes body, mind and soul, it connected me with the wholeness, the totality that I am.”

Massage and Gentle Bodywork

“Lighter touch but doubly efficient. Experiencing her lighter techniques, I have a different view to massage now.”

In practice since 2005 Julia has developed, what seems to be a highly successful, light touch, approach to massage and bodywork, integrating, scar healing, detox foot and hand baths, bone energy work, gentle spinal alignment and the use of flower essences, flower cards and gentle touch techniques for emotional wellbeing as required.

Clients seeking massage often present with underlying emotional and/or physical issues symptomatic of, or causing, a blockage or imbalance in their body system. Julia aims to gently release these blockages, however caused, so allowing the body to find its own new, balanced and pain-free state of being.

Physical symptoms she typically works with include: sciatica, lower and upper back pain, neck and shoulder tension, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus or ringing in the ears, clicky jaw, laudosis, kyphosis, scoliosis, trapped nerves, fibromyalgia, arthritis, knee and joint problems, self harming and other scar healing. Emotionally, she works energetically to clear issues such as phobias, stress at work or home, and childhood nightmares and is happy to support clients through challenging life transitions

Pregnancy and Post Partum Massage

“I hadn’t particularly considered massage as a lot of people seem reluctant to work during pregnancy… I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.”

Pregnancy can be a particularly challenging time, as the whole body re-orientates around a continually changing physique to prepare for birth, accommodate and carry the growing child. Physical conditions that can be prevented or attended to during this time include back ache, abdominal pain, aching ribs, aching hips, pregnancy waddle, stiff neck and shoulders, sleepless nights, acid reflux, poor digestion and water retention.

As a fully qualified Pregnancy and Post Partum Massage practitioner Julia is able to offer massage during all three trimesters. Her light touch approach seems to particularly lend itself to this, often sensitive, client group and side lying techniques with copious pillows ensure dreamy comfort, even when prone and supine positions are no-longer an option.

Julia also offers caesarean scar healing. She uses flower essences to helping both mother and child prepare for birth, overcome trauma, assist in relationships, aid restful sleep, overcome nightmares and aid digestion and weaning. Partners are also very much encouraged to come for support during this, often emotionally and logistically challenging, time.

“She is an amazing woman who has helped me out more than words can say… I feel as if I have made a new friend.”
