Doctor ~ Ayurveda Practitioner



      • Ayurveda Treatments
      • Ayurveda Yoga
  • I have been regular client of Julia’s for the past 10 years. I have tried reflexology and healing, and loved them both. Whenever I book an appointment with Julia, she always has plenty of time for me and I can’t imagine how I would have dealt with challenges that life has presented me in the past years without Julia’s professional help. Last week I have received healing on distance, due to Covid 19 restrictions, and I was amazed how powerful it was despite us being miles apart. I can’t recommend Julia and her Sanctuary enough.


  • I wanted to commend Julia Massey on a wonderful massage and service in general. I felt incredibly run down after many weeks at work and other problems mounting up on me. Julia took the time to do a full consultation and massage for two hours and although it was the last appointment of the evening, I never once felt rushed.
