Holistic Therapist and Yogi - helping you achieve good health though natural therapies and Yoga.
Totally Holistic Health was founded by myself, Julie Elder in 2005. I specialise in providing complementary therapy services. These include Yoga, Bowen, Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, Kinesiology, Reflexology and Reiki. I am based in Cheadle Hulme covering the North Cheshire and South Manchester area.
I have always had an interest in Natural Health even from an early age. After years of working in a corporate environment and seeing the stresses and strains it placed on the body, health and wellbeing I was confident that I needed a change of direction.
The ideal opportunity came when my son started school. This was when I decided to retrain as a therapist. Within 6 weeks of starting my course I discovered I was pregnant with my daughter – who said that stress doesn’t affect fertility!!
I completed the first year of my course, gave birth to my daughter in the summer and continued with the second year with baby in tow. I still however managed to achieve a college award and distinctions in my HND in Health and Complementary Therapies. The course gave me a fantastic grounding in all aspects of working in a therapeutic environment. This included counselling skills; psychology; sociology; diet and nutrition; anatomy and physiology. I also became qualified Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Swedish Massage and Indian head Massage.
My knowledge and determination has never wavered. I love learning new skills, therapies and gaining new knowledge. Since qualifying in 2005 I have become qualified as a Reiki master; Advanced Bowen practitioner; Baby Massage instructor; Kinesiologist to diploma level and also hold qualifications in Pregnancy Massage; Tibetan Acupressure Head Massage; Natural face Lift Massage and Mindfulness. I am also enhancing my lifelong love of Yoga and have trained as a Yoga Teacher to enhance the treatments I can offer you. Having recently seen the devastating mental health issues after two years of coronavirus and lockdowns I also wanted to offer a supportive service to help with this too so embarked on an amazing Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy course which I completed in 2022. I am so pleased to be able this awesome modality to my therapy arsenal.
Customer service is very important to me and I try to follow up each client’s treatment.
Also maintaining and updating my training regularly helps me add additional skills and knowledge to help you receive the best help and advice I can give.
