Meet the Meridian Teaching Team
The Core Teaching Team at Meridian School of Massage and Bodywork
Lead Tutor for Meridian Birmingham for the Professional Diploma in Holistic and Therapeutic Massage and Holistic Sports and Remedial Massage Diploma. Julie is also a Theory and Practical Assessor for MTI and runs her own Clinic Practice:
"It all began when I watched a physiotherapist use massage during a treatment and was suitably impressed with the results. Being of a curious nature, I had to find out more. After taking a basic massage course in 2004 at a local college, I was well and truly hooked. There had to be more to learn I was sure, and indeed there was.
After taking a Sports Massage Diploma came a 'chance' meeting with Lorraine, a person as passionate about massage as myself. I signed up for the Meridian Massage Practitioner Diploma. It presented me with a real big learning curve about 'human being' and 'being human'. The opportunity to develop technically as a practitioner (integrating methods from previous training) and self-development which enhances therapeutic relationships was exciting and invaluable. I feel very privilege to have discovered an occupation that continues to challenge and excite
Now I have my own complementary health practice working with a variety of clients, in a variety of settings. I facilitate Continual Professional Development courses for qualified therapists and introduction to massage days for partners and families.
So, not only curious, but someone who likes to share, I want to 'spread the word' about massage. In 2007 Lorraine offered me the opportunity to work as an Assistant Tutor within Meridian. So here I am and loving it"
