Profound and transformative

Julie is a powerful practitioner with a beautiful inner light that uplifts all her meet her. I cannot recommend her enough for anyone looking for a treatment or to learn more about Reiki. I have sat for Reiki 1 twice, had several private treatments and most recently completed Reiki 2 with Julie at Rainforest Reiki. Each experience has been profound and transformative.

Speaking of my most recent experience - Reiki 2 – Okuden – once again, Julie led a truly beautiful weekend which left me feeling deeply renewed and connected. Julie shares her wisdom and knowledge freely in a caring yet professional manner. I left with new motivation to continue my reiki journey, and with many new skills and experiences to aid me.

Reiki has played (and continues to play) a key role in my personal healing journey, and I’m excited to begin sharing this with others, thanks to Julie.

Thank you Kara. It's such a gift for me to watch your personal journey unfold and that you are now sharing reiki professionally.

Instant shift

I was really struggling and Julie with her calm, compassion, wisdom and knowledge came at just the right time. Even after the first day, there was a shift in me that had a ripple effect on interactions with friends and even my dog! I was lying on my bed doing self-reiki and my little dog jumped up and shoved his nose under my hand (he has only done this once before) and then settled down for his own reiki session. I often struggle with routines but I know this is something I need and want and will incorporate into my daily life. On with the journey - who knows where it will lead!

Thanks for sharing Suzanne. When we practice reiki on ourselves, all those around us benefit, including our pets.

I have complete Reiki 1 & 2 with Julie at Rainforest Reiki and have the utmost respect for her teachings of Usui Reiki Ryoho. Rainforest Reiki offers a very relaxed, natural and pleasant learning atmosphere for Julie to share her wealth of experience and wisdom in using the Reiki system. I am so grateful to have completed this course. Not only has Julie given me the confidence to use Reiki for self-healing and a compassionate act to share with others, but she has also demonstrated how practising the system of Reiki leads to a more peaceful, happy and fulfilling life. This new way of life is something I am now committed to practising daily.

Thank you Lara. I'm glad you are finding practicing the system of reiki so rewarding.

Reiki and yoga retreat

I had a wonderful time with Julie on a retreat down at Mission Beach. Julie is a wonderful person and has such a calm way about her. I would highly recommend her retreat if you are interested in Reiki, mediation or just need some time to slow down. Fantastic course and wonderful location.

Thank you Fran. Such a pleasure to have you on retreat and I'm glad you are continuing to practice at home.

A transformational experience

I completed Reiki 1 Shoden and Reiki 2 Okuden with Julie recently and what an amazing transformation within myself I have observed. The grounding experience that comes from the original Japanese teachings is like no other. Julie is an amazing practioner and teacher, who, undeniably, practices what she preaches.

I highly recommend Rainforest Reiki, for some; a deep relaxation and healing experience, for myself; an uncomfortable yet rewarding shedding, a transformational shift within myself and my life.

Thanks Julie for your wisdom and nurturing care.

Much love,
Taj xo

Thank you Taj. I'm glad you found the practices so rewarding.

I have completed Reiki 1 & 2 at Rainforest Reiki with Julie and have attended a retreat with Julie at The Sanctuary. Julie is passionate about Reiki and her energy and light is captivating. It is an honour to have Julie as my teacher, and I am excited to be on this journey, learning, evolving and raising my vibration. I look forward to further learning and personal growth. I highly recommend, for anyone interested in Reiki to get in touch with Julie, you too will be obsessed. Xo

Thank you Vanessa. Personal growth is so important and it's wonderful that you are finding traditional reiki so supportive on your journey.

Reiki level 1

I had the chance to pass my reiki level one certificate with Julie while I was visiting Cairns.
Julie made herself available for me, even at short notice, which I really appreciate !
Rainforest Reiki is a beautiful place full of nature and peace.  After spending one day meditating and learning new techniques with Julie it felt like I  had just spent a whole week in a retreat centre.
Thank you for your knowledge, your kindness, your energy and your time !
Merci ! ?

Thank you Elodie and enjoy the rest of your trip.

A great experience

I had a wonderful experience learning Reiki 1 Shoden with Julie and learned so much about reiki. Would thoroughly recommend it! We had a beautiful vegetarian lunch and I got to experience giving and receiving treatments.

Thank you Carla.
