Yoga Therapy is based on the individual’s health concerns and goals. Therapeutic yoga tends to be gentler, making it more appropriate for those experiencing pain, chronic health issues and/or movement limitations. If needed, yoga therapy sessions can be done seated in a chair. A written summary of each session is provided for use at home.
People often find that 3 sessions, one or two weeks apart, work best for them to learn and practice their individually-designed practices. The fee is $75 for each 90 minute session.
Meditation and Yoga Nidra are specific therapeutic yoga practices that can be taught individually; to couples; or to a small group of family or friends. The fee varies based on number of people.
After years of Doctors not being able to help me with my problems I decided to try an alternative approach. I initially went to a class, but decided after 5 years of chronic pain I could use some individual sessions. Julie took time to listen and understand my problem and cause of pain. Over the next 4 months of private sessions, Julie taught me excellent tools on yoga breathing techniques that would help me lessen my pain and ease my angst. Julie can also incorporate reiki energy work with the yoga. During my time with Julie, my energy levels came up and I asked her to work with me on some more active types of yoga poses. She was able to create a routine just for me! I would not have imagined I could actually get to a place where I could do some of those poses, but Julie got me there. Further, Julie sends you a completed review of each session in an email with meditation and breathing techniques, and poses. This really helped me as I have some issues with memory. I highly recommend Julie for your own personal journey to wellness! Namaste…
I cannot say Thank You enough!! Julie has shown me how reiki and yoga can holistically support me on my healing and living journey! I truly appreciate Julie's depth of knowledge, her professionalism and ability to authentically connect with her clients! I would not be the person I am today without working with her through reiki and yoga therapies. For my birthday, I asked my family to do a yoga nidra class with her and even my teenage son was interested in learning more! THANK YOU JULIE!
Excellent!!! I have chronic back and shoulder pain. I typically manage it through deep tissue massages once a month but this was no longer working. When I started treatment with Julie I was at an 8 out of 10 pain level with nauseating pain every two to three days. I went through 4 sessions with Julie and it has made a huge difference. I still have some pain but this is most likely occurring because I only do the yoga session 1-2 times per week on my own. 3-4 times per week would probably result in no pain. It has been two months since my last session and I am typically at a 0 to 1 pain level and have not peaked past a 4. The session not only helped with managing the immediate pain but it also helped me keep the pain reduced by giving me tools to use, including relaxation techniques that can be used at work or while driving, I would highly recommend Julie's customized services for pain, flexibility, and general well-being.
I was scheduled for back surgery and was desperate to find alternative pain management. I had never experienced yoga or Reiki before. I have been seeing Julie for 3 months now and the difference in my pain, stress, and lifestyle is remarkable. She takes the time to connect with her clients and is very thorough with treatment procedures and recommendations. I am practically pain free and able to move better than I have in years. I am sleeping better, feeling better, and am able to accept life stressors easier. Julie's honesty and compassion for others helps promote acceptance and healing. She is well versed in all areas of yoga and Reiki and is a phenomenal instructor. I have recommended her to my physical therapist and numerous friends.
Julie’s knowledge, patience, professionalism and positive attitude far exceed my expectations. I first attended Julie's Beginning Level Yoga for Healing (group class) for stress reduction purposes and I learned a lot about body awareness, breathing, gentle stretching, and positive thinking. Because of that positive learning experience I attended Yoga Therapy. Julie took her time discussing my goals, creating a plan to meet those goals, and teaching me how to practice properly. After every yoga class and yoga therapy session with Julie my mind is clear and my body is relaxed, as if I’ve hit the “reset” button. I also sleep better and handle stress more positively which makes me a happier person. I highly recommend yoga classes and/or yoga therapy with Julie.
Julie was great to work with. She took the time to evaluate where I was at and we worked into exercises over three yoga therapy sessions that brought increasing stability to help with the pain I was experiencing. I was surprised by how quickly I started to see results.
I sought out yoga therapy and Julie's help due to ongoing stress, grief, and physical recovery after my third c-section delivery. After one session of yoga therapy, I felt immediate, positive results in decreased stress, less tension, and pain relief. I couldn't wait to return to see what else she could teach me about my body awareness, alignment, and the poses and breathing techniques she would help me to practice to gain the most relief of my issues. Julie personalizes each session for your needs and the follow-up document and information she provides is easy to follow and makes it so seamless to incorporate the yoga therapy and breathing exercises and practices at home. I was amazed and continue to be amazed at the knowledge and compassion Julie has for me and my personal health issues. I have done three full yoga therapy sessions and have tried Reiki and all techniques implored have helped me tremendously. I highly recommend Energy Therapies for Health as an integral part of anyone's recovery from illness, an ailment, or as a therapeutic part of getting and staying healthy. I can't say enough wonderful things about Julie and her practice.
Julie is a true professional - very knowledgeable and patient. She worked with me over 3 sessions to help me reach goals I had set for myself. I am now using the techniques I learned from her to continue my progress. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone seeking therapy yoga.
Julie developed and teaches a unique program for cancer survivors specifically tailored to their individual needs. She paid particular attention to those recovering from the long term effects of cancer treatment. Participants’ experiences and feedback were extremely positive. They achieved increased energy, better sleep patterns, increased range of motion, improved posture and deeper breathing and an overall improvement in their positive connection to their bodies. Julie's professional, caring manner, individualized attention, and compassionate spirit has made a huge differencein the health and healing of those cancer survivors she has touched. Speaking as an oncology nurse, I could not rate her services higher.
Reiki and Yoga therapy have done more for me in such a short period of time than years of counseling for anxiety and depression. Energy is all around us. Energy work has allowed me to start to heal on the inside and then create the space to let the energy flow out. Julie's understanding, acceptance and intuition before, during and after a session always leaves me feeling so much better and more clear. So much so that I am now pursing learning more about Reiki so that I might one day help others like Julie has helped me.
