Julie in Belfast (Northern Ireland), United Kingdom
Born in Germany, I moved to Belfast in 1997 to embark on an English Literature degree, which I completed in June 2000.
I started my journey of becoming a Massage Therapist in 2004, with a qualification in Indian Head Massage.
In 2006 I graduated from the Belfast Institute of Further and Higher Education in Swedish Massage, Anatomy & Physiology and in 2007 with a Diploma in Body Massage.
In 2014 I enrolled on a massage training course in Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy with the prestigious JING Institute in Brighton, England.
I am currently a second year student on a degree level qualification (BTEC Level 6 – the highest massage qualification available in the UK to date) in Clinical and Sports Massage with the same training provider.
My approach to massage is mindful; I pride myself in working with a careful, listening touch, allowing the body to open and heal at its own pace. I now offer outcome based treatments for long-term chronic pain issues, as well as injuries, and stress related conditions to my clients, as well as injury prevention and post event recovery for the more active. I feel deeply honoured and grateful to work with touch therapies and help improve people’s quality of life and induce a sense of complete wellbeing.
I have been in private practice since 2006. Being a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists, I regularly engage in CPD training and have post-graduate certificates in Deep Tissue Massage, Massage for people living with cancer (Gayle McDonald course), Seated Acupressure and Holistic Facials.
I am growing ever more passionate about bodywork and have also completed a certificate in Advanced Myofascial Release Techniques, using indirect and structural approaches to facilitate re-balancing and healing of the body.
I have also been working with Reiki Healing for 15 years and feel that I am extremely well placed to offer specialist therapeutic bodywork treatments, completely tailored to the individual. I combine all my skills to create a unique style of massage that is highly enjoyable and effective in delivering results.
I love movement and am a passionate yoga student in my spare time and have been practicing meditation for over 12 years.

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
