Testimonials and Articles

Brilliant! I tried Hypnotherapy out being a sceptic. This was a last resort for me to try and restore my self esteem and achieve my weight goals. Julie is extremely engaging, with a calming nature. She put me at ease throughout the whole treatment. She listened to what I wanted and tailored the treatment to give the best possible outcome. I couldn't be happier with the results I've seen and the changes in my approach to food and how my self esteem has grown (so far I've lost 10.5 lbs).

Julie is so friendly and welcoming. She is so passionate about all the treatments she offers and you can tell she cares about giving you the best treatment, whatever it is you have chosen. I always feel so relaxed and rejuvenated after a treatment with her and I would recommend her to everyone.

Excellent! I've really enjoyed this course and have learnt a lot. Teaching was at the right pace for me, lovely environment and really like all the handouts in the booklet.

Margaret, Beckenham (Reiki I)

Overall a very enjoyable and mindblowing experience. I am looking forward to putting today's learning into practice and I am strongly looking forward to Level 2. Thank you Julie.

After experiencing weeks of having difficulty in sleeping I decided to try reflexology. This was a wonderful and relaxing experience given by Julie. She mentioned at the time of the treatment she could tell I was ovulating but I didn't give it much thought. I was delighted that following the treatment it has aided my sleeping pattern and I slept soundly. I was even more delighted when 6 weeks later I discovered I was pregnant after being told by doctors some years ago that I would not be able to conceive naturally. I checked my diary and realised my reflexology treatment was, in fact, during my ovulation week. I am convinced that the reflexology played a fundamental role in becoming pregnant.

Having had such positive results from my Reiki I and II classes I was keen to gain the final attunement and whilst I have no plans to teach at this time - it's something I am considering for the future. Julie is a wonderful teacher and has such a calming, relaxing and enthusiastic approach her classes have all been excellent and produced positive effects on all the students. To anyone thinking about learning Reiki, I would highly recommend Julie.

Jacqui, Orpington (Reiki III)

The treatment was so relaxing and really helped reduce stress levels. It was amazing to have reflexology in my pyjamas in my own home and then fall into a lovely relaxed sleep straight after. Julie was so accommodating, friendly and genuinely passionate about her therapies. Truly the best complementary therapy service I have ever had and would highly recommend!

Today has been amazing. Everything from the start was explained fully and the atmosphere has been so friendly and relaxed. I will leave today having learnt so much more than I was expecting to, and it has awakened an even greater interest in me and has left me wanting to know more! I will be reading my manual from cover to cover and would love to join the Level 2 course next year.

Great course! Good to have extra information on crystal healing and auras - will enjoy searching for people's colours! Lovely crystals too - good value for money and will be well used, thanks. Keep up the good work!

I'm looking to increase the number and types of complementary therapies I can offer in my own business and Reiki is a therapy which fits in very well with my current qualifications. I will definitely go on to Level 2. I wasn't sure if it would be a therapy I felt "in tune" with but was pleasantly surprised at such positive reactions even after only the first attunement. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in complementary therapy.

It was such a lovely course, so pleased I did it. Julie was very good and explained things very clearly. Can't wait to do Level 2! I feel that I have learnt a lot and can't wait to practice it on friends and family.

The venue was stunning. Julie was clear, concise and thorough. She guided us through the day with ease, confidence and friendliness. I did not know what to expect when I arrived. I am leaving very pleased to have booked and privileged that Julie shared with us her knowledge and passion for Reiki. Thank you for a very powerful and fantastic class.

In the world that we live in, being stressed is just another every day phenomenon. We except it, deal with it and expect it just as much as the First Capital Connect Service to Wimbledon to be delayed.

Should our lives really be causing us so much stress? Does being stressed mean we are working hard, and evidently if we are not stressed, should we be working harder? Is stress now the measuring tool for bosses to walk around the office and say “Oh you look terrible. Well done! Keep up the hard work!” I really hope not.

There are many ways in which to reduce stress, as more and more people are being hit with physical manifestations of stress. I believe it is something we must really be aware of. Saying that, relaxing is not in my vocabulary. I am just not very good at it. But I understand that if I am to carry on the way I am, working hard, I need to learn to do so. So I found myself agreeing to try some Reiki.

All I knew about Reiki before last week is that it is a sort of healing or relaxing exercise that uses hands. Technical, I know. But actually Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It works by ‘laying on hands’ and is based on the idea that an unseen ‘life force energy’ flows through us. If our ‘life force energy’ is low, then we are more likely to be ill or stressed, when high, we are more likely to be happy and healthy.

Julie Davies, a mobile holistic therapist came round to my house last week to help me relax. She set up a chair and fully clothed I laid down while she put some relaxing music on. Usually I find that sort of music irritating, but it was quite soothing, and I found myself kicking all my scepticism out the window. Julie began by placing her hands on my shoulders and holding them there for a little while, before moving on to my head and mostly staying there. Apparently I am all in my head. Who would have thought it? It took a while for me to shut out the annoying, unwanted and irrelevant thoughts from my mind, but once I was able to do so, I felt more relaxed than I have in a very long time. My whole body felt light, and my arms felt as if they were floating up, away from me. The rest of the day I felt utterly peaceful and very creative. I recommend it to anyone that needs a boost, needs to relax or feels as though they are struggling with unwanted pressure.

Julie not only administers Reiki but many other holistic therapies. Take a look at her website here: www.calmrestored.co.uk
