Julie creates a really welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, is accommodating to the group’s needs as well as your own. Super knowledgable and calm and fab meditation at the end. Thoroughly enjoy these classes ! Namaste ?Kerry
This is the first class of this kind I have attended and it won’t be the last. At first I felt like I should be moving onto the next Adana but the idea is to release yourself into the pose and just totally relax. Once you get the hang of this it is sooooo good. You use bolsters and blankets to make you so comfy you can’t help to relax and Julie keeps a watchful eye on you to make sure you have all you need and in the right place. Highly recommend.

The reflexology session I had was the most relaxing treatment ever. Hope to explore some of the other treatments Julie offers very soon, and her yoga classes. Can’t wait for my next reflexology session. Thanks.Nicola Shaw
What a superb kinesiology session with Julie! At last I am fully balanced with my body, energy levels, mind & spirit. I feel at one with myself so slept like a log last night. Plus I enjoyed my Pilates & was quite confident doing opposite side exercises in my class today for first time as Julie turned my cross over switch off? Maybe got that term a bit wrong, not sure? I shall definitely return again for further sessions if my body becomes unbalanced again as Julie works miracles. I love alternative therapies but believe strongly you must put your trust in your therapist always. Well done Julie, what a difference an hour with you makes to all aspects of my life.Helen G
This was a revelation to me. I’ve never had kinesiology performed on me before. I can totally recommend it. Julie is so lovely too. I had lots of questions and she didn’t dismiss me or rush the procedure. She’s very thorough. I felt great afterwards, I’m definitely going again and I’ve already told anyone who has stood still long enough for me to tell them how fab Julie is.Lisa
When looking for a Kinesiologist there were a few to choose from, some local to me and some not. I called Julie to have a chat and knew straight away that I wanted to see her for my first taste of Kinesiology. I was so glad to have taken the time to look around, Julie was fantastic, I took my partner along to have a session too and Julie was so welcoming to us both, nothing was too much trouble. I ask a lot of questions to gain knowledge of whatever I do and at no point did I get the feeling that my questions were a pain. Julie’s explanation of everything she did was very informative and thorough, and the whole session was very relaxed and sometimes very funny too. I would highly recommend anyone to see Julie.Dewi
Hi I had my first treatment with Julie, she made me feel very relaxed and informed me about each step of the treatment. I left feeling energised. I would recommend Julie and am looking forward to further treatments.Victoria
I have been attending Julie’s classes for about 12 months now and I throughly enjoy the lesson. Julie is lighthearted and patient, a calming influence and I always feel rejuvenated afterwards. I have also used Julie’s holistic therapy’s and I have found the Bowen treatment to be the most successful, curing my chronic back/shoulder pain (combined with regular yoga and Pilates practice), after 10 years of suffering. I would recommend her classes and therapies all day, every day and I cannot sing her praises enough xJennifer
Julie has been working her massage magic on me for many years. For thorough relaxation I would highly recommend the full body massage or a back massage/reflexology combination treatment. During any stressful period, this is a good way of switching off and giving your mind and body a break.Carol
Had a fantastic yoga session with Julie. I haven’t slept so well in ages. She was also very attentive and supported me with a recent injury. Julie is a very friendly person and her yoga session are great. Can’t recommend Julie highly enough.Marie
Julie instantly made me feel relaxed and at ease we talked through the process and what was happening and it really blew me away! I came away in a different mind set than on arrival. I felt at peace and relaxed to the point I nodded off when I got home! I would highly recommend this session as I believe dealing with different issues this gets to the source of the issue and helps you to see your body in a different way! I would highly recommend Julie if your like me and maybe a little clueless! I will definitely going back again and would love to try other amazing things she offers.Cassie
I have been to a few of Julie’s yoga classes, they are relaxed and informal so you can get he most from your experience. After I feel totally relaxed and calm, Julie is a great teacher who is approachable and clearly enjoys her teaching, would highly recommendLisa
Felt like I already knew Julie through Facebook. Saw her yesterday for a one to one. She was gentle with me as promised, aware of my back and knee problems and adapting and ensuring I was comfortable at all times. But the meditation at the end was just what I needed. I felt so relaxed afterwards. Thank you Julie so much. Would definitely recommend and look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future. Linda xLinda
Another fabulous yoga session. Came away feeling fully stretched and very peaceful after a relax at the end. Lovely class,lovely teacher and friendly girls ( me being the oldest at 75!!)Molly
After struggling with back pain for several months, I had a Bowen treatment following a friend’s recommendation. Julie explained the technique and how it may work very clearly. One week later and I’m virtually pain free, I can’t recommend it highly enough if you have any form of skeleto-muscular pain. The after care was also very informative and attentive. Thank you!David
I really enjoy Julie’s class, I was nervous to start but quickly realised that the class is comfortable and relaxed, Julie provides great variation throughout the class and there is always a version of each asana that caters to every capability. She provides encouragement without pressure to perform, this is not a class full of magazine cover type yogis. This is a room of people at all ages and levels of their yoga journey bringing their focus and their practice together to achieve a positive mindful excercise. Probably my favourite hour of the week! XxLouise M
It was lovely to get back after a two week break! It’s such a lovely class with a great teacher and equally great “classmates” Everyone is so lovely and the elements of the class are more than suited to my OAP body !? Never leave feeling that I’ve failed nor are we made to feel like that. Everyone supports each other and it’s good to feel relaxed in each other’s company too, especially when the odd giggle or two creeps in ! I thoroughly enjoy my weekly relaxation and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Julie ! XxMargaret
Julie was welcoming and professional. The treatment was carried out with care and attention. Thoroughly recommend her to anyone who has pain. My back feels better already after one day!” HazelHazel
What a lovely class. I went with very tight hip flexors and when I came out I felt much looser without putting too much strain on my body. I felt very relaxed yet energised for the rest of my day. The small group made it feel very intimate yet with a nice interaction. will definitely be back and I’ve already recommended to a few people.Michelle
Loved my first ever yoga session. Julie is such a lovely person and makes you feel very welcome. There is no pressure at all during the class you just go at your own pace and do what is comfortable for you. Julie makes the class very enjoyable and the meditation she did at the end of the class was pure bliss, I could have stayed forever. Im really looking forward to my next session and hope this can become a lifelong hobby.Susanne
Loving my yoga on a Monday, as a beginner to it I was a little apprehensive but Julie is lovely & makes you feel very comfortable & relaxed & everyone in the class is very friendly, really look forward to my Monday yoga Tracey xTracey
A great introduction to Yoga…. My first ever class, but definitely not my last 🙂 Julie was a very good teacher/instructor, and the other ladies in the class were lovely too!Andrea
Words cannot describe my session with Julie, momentarily felt relief that can only be described as miraculous. I know I have more ‘peeling’ to do but my head is quieter and my thoughts calmer. I feel connected to that quiet place within that I know is my true self. I cannot recommend Julie highly enough she is an angel.Elaine
Had an excellent 1 hour treatment with Julie. Firstly a massage followed seamlessly by reflexology. The results were extremely relaxing for days. Thanks AnnAnn G
I have enjoyed the treatments with Julie. Especially reiki combined with Tibetan head massage. Helped tremendously with swollen sinuses and in general incredible. Julie is a lovely. Highly knowledgeable and yet laid back and down to earth. A natural healer. I intend booking a private yoga session with her as well. Highly recommended. Another category altogether.Jennifer
Julie is absolutely amazing. Her treatments are always outstanding and the care and attention you get is fab. Thank youEmma
I was really nervous but Julie was an excellent teacher whom took time and energy to ensure i didnt hurt myself. Its a couple of days after the lesson i have no pain and i still feel i had worked my muscles. I am really looking forward to next class.Julie Anne
Julie is absolutely amazing. Her treatments are always outstanding and the care and attention you get is fab. Thank youEmma
I came to see Julie because I had some ongoing back and neck pain from a historical whiplash injury. I was also going through a challenging time emotionally in my personal life , caring for my Mum who has Alzheimer’s . Julie suggested a combination of Kinesiology and Bowen to target both the physical symptoms and the emotional symptoms . This combination has worked well for me . I feel much calmer and more emotionally balanced after the treatment . The pain in my back and neck has also significantly improvedCF
My first ever yoga lesson and I loved it. Julie is a great teacher.Lindsay
This lady is truly amazing no way would i be at the point in my life without such support passion and professionalism which Julie provides .I started with Kinesiology amazing never fails to blow me away when ever I have a treatment also Julie’s massage with aromatherapy oils truly amazing like a floppy doll when treatment ends Reiki is beautiful I find Julie’s Reiki very connecting and powerful it’s lovely and I have just had 1 Bowen treatment 5 day’s ago that has supported me tremendously xx a very special lady many thanks Julie could never ever thank you enough for our journey together much love always Julie xxChristine
A really lovely yoga class on Thursday evening.. I would go as far to say one of my fave yoga sessions ever as Julie had her lovely doors open to the garden so it felt like doing the class outside! I left feeling happy, chilled and balanced. Thanks Julie xHollie
I would like to say what a wonderful 1 to 1 session I had with Julie yesterday. It is many years since I practised Yoga and have been wanting to take it up again but lacked the confidence. Thank you, Julie, for your understanding, patience and enthusiasm. I now feel energised and able to take up a Yoga class again. XDiana
Julie was great, this was my first experience of yoga and she thoroughly explained it, it was an enjoyable experience, so much so I have booked another 4 one on ones I’m hookedEmma
I couldn’t recommend Julie more, she is brilliant at what she does, takes extra time on working personally with you without charging you more and never rushes through appointments, amazingly priced, very qualified and really knows her stuff. Very pleased with all her treatments, best I’ve ever been to and will definitely be taking the time to treat myself again soonKim
I arrived for my appointment feeling quite stressed. Julie is lovely, a good listener and explained the treatment as we went along. When I left I felt like a weight had been lifted from me, very clam and relaxed, I had the best nights sleep I’ve had in years and awake feeling calm and peaceful too. I really can’t recommnend Julie highly enoughAnon
I have been having various treatments with Julie for many years. Her knowledge, techniques and advice are second to none. I went to her with recently with a calf injury and I have no doubt my recovery has been aided by the Bowen Technique! Thank you JulieAmanda
I first went to Julie years ago but have just been through chemo last year so went back for kinesiology. I have to say that not only is julie so lovely but she is very professional and takes time with you. Kinesiology is amazing and definitely works. The one thing I never mentioned to Julie was that I thought I had a problem as many do, with the iliaocaecal valve and to my amazement julie pulled it up from my session. My daughters are going for anxiety to and I couldn’t recommend julie enough. A treatment with her you will want to go back for sureI booked in for Bowen Treatment for shoulder pain after a recommendation from a friend. I am awaiting surgery for a spur to be removed from my shoulder as well as a repair to rotator cuff tear.
I have had 3 treatments whilst waiting for surgery. I have gained more flexibility in my arm & shoulder. The pain & discomfort I experienced have greatly improved. Julie has a very friendly manner & is approachable & makes you feel at ease. Thank you Julie – I will be returning in the future without a doubt & would not hesitate in recommending her services to family & friends. Many thanks
Before 2002 my attitude towards Alternative Therapy belonged to what I now call ‘un enlightened skeptics.’ I had lifelong allergy to cigarette smoke, dust and pollen, which made it impossible for me to breathe without nose drops or to function without prescribed anti histamine. Wherever I lived in the world I had the same problem. After a severe sinus attack on Lufthansa flight over Frankfurt in 2002, which left me with a death wish I decided I had enough and tried homeopathy in Sheffield UK which worked miraculously and I am now totally free from any allergy!
Fast-forward 2012 and I fell on the stairs at home and was left with a very painful right bum muscle (glutes) which made my doctoral write up year a complete misery. I was x-rayed and NHS referred me to physiotherapy but I did not get any relief. Sitting was a serious problem. Walking was just about OK. I turned to hot stone massage, which was helpful but very short-termed. After my PhD graduation in November 2014, I had time to research alternative therapy for my pain and in February 2015 I decided on Bowen Technique so I booked an appointment with Julie Elder at Totally Holistic in Cheshire and voila! -one visit and the pain is now history. There is something special about Julie Elder who treated me. She exudes confidence without being patronizing and she listens with an extra ear. She told me exactly what she was doing but not to convince me, instead I knew she communicated directly to another dimension of my person, which is a signature of Holistic Therapies. Quantum Physics tells us that humans are not just the blobs of flesh that we can see and touch but also a sum total of pure energy! For this reason I knew I needed Julie to treat my other energetic problems that caused me bad digestion since childhood because she is also a certified Kinesiologist. Kinesiology is a bit like a body energy MOT I later found out. Guess what? I visited the clinic on Thursday the 5th of March for Kinesiology treatment that lasted one hour fifteen minute and the rest is history? I now have excellent bowel movements, cluster headaches gone, my stiff neck and shoulder have improved –not to mention my improved sleeping pattern. Eliminating waste from the body is a problem that many people do not talk about but I am afraid that my research shows that many dis-eases begin right there in the gut!
I was diagnosed with ‘sleeping disorder’ a few years ago and prescribed strong medication, which turns me into a zombie. I am 100% sure I won’t need them any time soon.
Having suffered with chronic lower back pain and sciatica since my early twenties, which radiated through my buttocks and hips, regularly impacting significantly on my mobility and always residing as a low level pain 24hrs a day even on a good day, I was recommended to try Bowen by a friend. My MRI scans show significant disc degradation which will continue to worsen over time and so admittedly I was very sceptical on how and if Bowen could help and tried it only as a last resort more than anything after being immobilised on a particularly bad weekend.
Having had 3 sessions of Bowen over the last few months I am virtually pain free for the first time in 17 years. I have some stiffness on occasion and am aware that my discs will progressively get worse and pain will return at times, but knowing now that I have the option of visiting Julie to ‘tune up’ and help to relieve that pain is fantastic. I have needed no painkillers since having Bowen – something I previously took on an almost daily basis. Having been a sceptical non-believer I cannot recommend the treatment highly enough due to the relief it has given me and the mobility I have regained.
I had been suffering with ear, head, neck and shoulder ache along with sinus problems for several months. I had changed my diet over those months and was trying to eat healthily as I was convinced I also had numerous food allergies. I had been to my gp who’s suggested treatments were ineffective. On visiting Julie, she used my muscle responses to diagnose me with an illiocecal valve problem which she then proceeded to treat by applying pressure to parts of my body. She tested me for food sensitivities but these proved not to be the cause of my problems. Julie advised aftercare of a 2 week detox diet after which my symptoms had almost disappeared. I had one further treatment and am now symptom free. I’m really glad I visited Julie. She has helped me enormously with a problem that I was beginning to think would not get resolved. Thank you
I have had back Pain for 10 years, after a few sessions of Bowen Therapy with Julie it was like magic no pain, I was also having medical treatment for an over active Thyroid Julie once again using Bowen Therapy techniques helped my TSH increase and now I am in remission and no more medication. I would recommend Julie to anyone she puts you at your ease straight away and gives you confidence. I wish I had met her years ago I would not go to anyone else. Thank you Julie.Jacky
I came to Julie and Bowen as a bit of a wreck. I had been in two car accidents twenty odd years ago and had racked up quite a mass of muscle scar tissue and disc injury round my neck and shoulders. Having tried steroid injections, physio, pain killers and having been off work for a year, I was ready to try anything. Interestingly it was my consultant (neurosurgeon) who suggested Bowen treatment. I nearly fell off my chair when he mentioned it as it sounded so avant garde. Well it was either that or some diabolical operation, so I thought what have I got to lose? My first session was very strange. After the usual health Q&A, Julie explained that basically all I had to do was lie still and let it wash over me. I didnt even have to believe that the treatment would work. There was no manipulation, no reverberating crack of bones, in fact there was an interesting lack of “magical showmanship”. Just a few deft presses on my back and we were done. Is that it? I asked, being used to lights, camera and action. Yes, came the reply. Just lie there and let it work. So I lay there quietly. And it washed over me like a soothing zephyr. I left intrigued… Over the next few days I felt things moving! Imagine a slow -moving, windy river where the bends are all clogged up with branches and weeds. As the river becomes less sluggish, the waters run more smoothly and start to eat away at those clogged weeds and branches. They break away and get taken downriver by the rising flood…..soon the bends are free and the now the waters run smooth and clare……….This, for me, is Bowen…….if you too are sick of drugs and conventional treatments then have a session……you have nothing to lose but your pains :o) )Clare
Really relaxing reflexology highly recommendedElaine
It was chilly outside but after a few guided moves we soon warmed up! This particular class was a good mix of abilities, age and gender….but an equally relaxing and beneficial time was experienced by all under the expert and enthusiastic teaching of Julie. No one is made it feel uneasy or unable to follow her programme. Everyone is sure to leave relaxed and energised. I personally find the classes beneficial, uncomplicated, relaxing and I thoroughly enjoy the overall ambiance within the group. This feeling extends into other classes run by Julie, on other days too, so it is possible to feel comfortable with other yogis and I have experienced this by attending various sessions and have enjoyed the company of different people every time. Age and ability have no barriers in any of Julie’s classes. Thanks again for a lovely class, see you soon.Margaret
