Julie started her working life after qualifying, as a nursery nurse and state enrolled nurse.
She spent many years working as an early years practitioner which she loved. She has always had an interest in holistic therapy so she changed direction and qualified as a complementary therapist practising Swedish massage, Indian head massage, reflexology and reiki.
Julie's passion lies with reiki and she now has 20yrs experience in the field and dedicates her service to helping both human and four-legged clients.
She is an animal lover and owner and likes to spend her spare time split between her other passions which are her dog and two horses. Her mum, three children and four grandchildren.

Rebecca has been practising yoga since 2000 in the Viniyoga tradition. She includes postures, breath awareness, sound/mantra, relaxation and meditation in her classes.
Whilst strength, flexibility, improved posture and breathing all result from yoga practice there is also a deeper sense of well-being that yoga brings. Rebecca's many years of study, personal practice and therapeutic approach help guide students in a friendly and accessible way. She is skilled at adapting postures to the students' needs and working with people with illness or pain.
The small classes at Orchard Barn are perfect for exploring the self in a beautiful environment.
Rebecca is also a practising nurse and offers a phlebotomy to support our functional medicine service.
