Frequently asked questions:


Who can be treated? 

Everyone! Julia has extensive experience of working with individuals of all ages, but has a particular interest in working with children and adolescents. Bowen and Acupuncture can be combined or  used separately : for those who are needle phobic but want to access the benefits of Chinese Medicine, Julia can use other techniques to 'stimulate' the acupuncture points. Just talk to Julia about any thoughts or concerns you might have. 

Each treatment is tailored personally for the individual and their presentation. It is therefore a fully bespoke service, supporting your health naturally.
