Hi! Thanks for visiting my website. Let me introduce myself and tell you a bit more about me.
I‘m Justine, owner of Naturally Serene Massage Therapy. I am ITEC qualified, a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists and fully insured. I currently work from my home in a beautiful, peaceful part of Yeovil in Somerset. I am committed to providing my clients with an exceptional service that does not just meet expectations but exceeds them, ensuring clients are treated respectfully as individuals in a professional, ethical environment that promotes, encourages and inspires personal wellness.
Just over 8 years ago I had a very stressful job and excruciating headaches that no medicine or tablets could help. I changed jobs 5 years ago and although the headaches improved they were still very much there so I decided to look for an alternative answer to relieve them. After doing some research on how our body works and how all our ‘systems’ are connected, I realised that my problem was muscular, caused by stress which had an effect on my whole body, not just my head. After I received treatment for the cause, not just the symptoms, I came out feeling pain free for the first time in years. There was immediate relief and I realised how much this pain had affected not just my body but my enjoyment of life! This was a huge turning point for me and I decided that I wanted a career change. That was how Naturally Serene was born! I am now committed and passionate about making a difference to the quality of lives of people like you by reducing stress and alleviating pain.
I am a converted 'couch potato' since I met my husband 8 years ago. I have always been lucky enough to be a slim build and I, like many people, thought slim was 'healthy' but through gaining more understanding of the body mechanics and systems I now realise that this wasn't the case! Since meeting my husband (who is a martial arts and fitness instructor - the perfect match for someone who thought exercise was walking to the car and back!) and qualifying in Massage Therapy I am so much more aware of what my body needs to remain healthy and enjoy - yes, enjoy! - two fantastic workout classes a week that not only help my physical fitness but also my mental wellness - nothing like a good workout on a punch bag to relieve that stress :-)
I even took part in Rough Runner - much to the amazement of my children who wondered who I was and what had I done with their 'shopping is exercise' mum!
Outside of my work at Naturally Serene, which gives me so much satisfaction, I love spending time with my family and walks (I know - MORE exercise!) along the coast with my husband especially in the winter when the sea is rough and the beach is empty - it's like a whole other world and a great place to have some quiet time to be alone with my thoughts (until my husband gets hungry of course! :-)
I look forward to meeting you soon!
