Julie spent many years at The Solaris Cancer Care center in Sir Charles gardener Hospital Perth, volunteering her time as a reflexologist. Giving patients and carers much needed time out from their grueling chemotherapy and Radiation treatments. Julie helped support patients going though this traumatic journey of treating their illness and finding the road to recovery.
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a form of complementary therapy which, through specific pressure point massage of the feet and hands, aims to promote wellness in other areas of the body by increasing circulation and balancing the bodies systems. Reflexology works with the central nervous system. During a treatment the reflexologist applies specific sequenced amounts of pressure to points in the feet and/or hands which sends a calming message from the peripheral nerves in the extremities to the central nervous, which in turn signals the body to relax.
Reflexology helps with;
- Circulation in the hands and feet to relieve numbness and tingling (neuropathy)
- Anxiety and fear surrounding illness and treatments
- People dealing with traumatic events happening in their lives
- Constipation and digestive issues surrounding treatment
- Gives time, space and peace for the mind and relaxes the nervous system
Julie's treatments can help the body to switch from the acute stress response (Sympathetic nervous system) to the rest and relax response (parasympathetic nervous system) giving an amazingly positive results to all patients.

Julie has worked with people of all ages from babies, premature and full term helping with many issues of sleep and digestion, to older aged people helping with many chronic pain conditions.
