About Julie

We’re Stronger in the Places Where We’ve Been Broken

~ Ernest Hemmingway ~

When I was 14, a curve developed in my spine (scoliosis), which needed surgery. It was a frightening time; however, I’m grateful for the brilliant skills of the orthopaedic surgeon and thankful for the experience because it’s made me more resilient in life.

Why Urban Serenity Began

During my recovery, I had to take strong medication, which made me feel very ill. This led to a keen interest in natural pain management methods, such as reflexology, massage, stretching, mindfulness, etc.

2008, I studied reflexology at The Academy of Complementary Therapies and earned a diploma from The Irish Reflexologists Institute. I gained qualifications in Aromatherapy and different massage modalities in the following years.

My goal is to help support other’s physical and emotional well-being with complementary therapies. The spinal fusion experience as a child has given me a unique understanding of coping with physical discomfort, stress, and anxiety.

In June 2010 I opened Urban Serenity in Lisburn City Centre. At this time, I saw both male and female clients, and my focus was on therapeutic massage for back pain and reflexology for complete health. My clientele grew steadily over the next ten years, and in 2017, I moved to new premises on Bachelors Walk.

Urban Serenity Today

I left my commercial premises in September 2020 amid the Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions. I created a home-based therapy room, changed my business model, and relaunched Urban Serenity in November of that year – offering reflexology and aromatherapy for women
