Serenity Holistics the Clue is in the Name!
On Friday, I went for an Intuology Appointment at Serenity Holistics in Irchester. (Other locations are Wellingborough, Rushden, Northampton, Sawtry, Tilbrook, Huntingdon).
My therapist, Julie Grint, explained that she called her therapy intuology, as it would contain a variety of different therapies and she would allow herself to be guided to use which ever therapy I needed.
On arriving at the salon, I found it easy to park in one of the pull in bays. I was welcomed by Julie into the salon and we had a brief chat before going through to the therapy room. Serenity Holistics smelt lovely and was very homely and welcoming.
Julie also checked that the fragrance in the room was OK for me and I was happy with it.
I’ve had therapies before and often on your first visit you have to sit down and fill in a form with any illness, tablets or medication etc. At Serenity I sat comfortably relaxing whilst Julie filled in the form, asking me questions and writing in the answers. I found this a really nice touch and very nurturing.
Julie explained my treatment might include some reiki, crystals, reflexology and facial reflexology. I went in feeling particularly stressed after a long week
I lay, fully clothed on the couch, with a cosy blanket tucking me in and a warm, electric blanket underneath me. I immediately felt looked after and relaxed.
Julie began with reiki around my head and neck area, which felt very pleasant. I had some weird pictures going on in my head at this point, I felt she was pulling colourful hankies out of the top of my head (rather like a clown at the circus) busy and colourful hankies were coming out one after another!
Julie asked if I was OK and to let her know if not at any point. She moved her hands and placed them on my heart and solar plexus chakras and the reiki continued. During this, for some reason my first cat popped into my head and I began thinking about him… I had such a rush of emotion all racing through me, I thought I would surely burst into tears, I allowed the reiki to flow into me and suddenly burst out laughing, we had a good giggle together and I added “I have no idea where that came from!” I knew the reiki had pushed away a blockage.
My treatment also included some reflexology on my feet. I am having some shoulder trouble at the moment and the part of my foot that related to my shoulder was acutely tender, Julie worked on this in such a way as to try to push through it and give me some relief but without torturing me at the same time!
I had my eyes closed but I believe she laid crystals across my chest and arm areas where the pain was coming round the front.
The facial reflexology part of the treatment was incredibly relaxing, again the part that related to me shoulder was tender again, as was the part that related to headaches. I had some lovely images going through my head of large sweet smelling, yellow fields in the sunshine. I was magical.
The end of my treatment did come round all too soon, but I was helped off the couch and invited to sit down with some crystals under my feet to ground me, just in case I was feeling dizzy. I drank some water and was asked to drink more during the evening ahead.
I must say my shoulder has felt much better, and today I have painted a garden fence with no ill effects. My stress did decrease too and I had a lovely night’s sleep.

Julie says of new venture “I recognise that so many busy women are suffering with chronic stress and lacking self-worth.

I’ll work with you to get you out of that “Stress Response” and into Loving Your Life, so you experience great health and vitality, increase your energy, gain confidence and look and feel beautiful inside and out.”
