It seems a good idea to let you know a little about me, Julie Lomax, as it's no small thing putting your trust in and coming to see me.

I studied BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy in Leeds, qualifying in 2005 and later trained in Sport & Remedial Massage and in Pilates. Over the years I have worked in a number of healthcare settings to develop my knowledge and practice to work effectively on a wide variety of problems and issues.

I have found, over the years, that I am empathic and conscientious. I am good at working with people on a one-to-one basis and, driven by a desire to make sure that I get our session 'right', I have a large interest in keeping up on the latest findings and research that underpin Physiotherapy, Massage and Pilates.

Continued learning is a vital part of being a Physiotherapist: I am Chartered and I constantly add to, amend and improve my practice with further training, courses and via the available research and evidence. I also have a qualification in counselling (HGDip) and have worked in a counselling capacity in an NHS mental health setting and with young offenders.

My ultimate aim is to provide a personal, knowledgeable and professional treatment experience which takes accounts of everything about you and your needs and which is tailored to work with and for you.


On a personal note...

I moved to Hebden Bridge in 2009 and set-up in private practice here shortly after my son was born. I’m a keen sports person, fitting in running, cycling and strength training as best I can around work and childcare. Historically I have run, climbed, mountaineered, cycled both on and off-road and cycle toured all over the UK and Europe. I also dinghy sail and can occasionally be spotted playing violin at local music events.




"I went to Calder Massage for a general M.O.T. on my back and shoulders, and to see if I could find out why my hip was so tight and sore. Julie spent considerable time loosening the knotted muscles in my shoulders and found the route cause of the hip problem straight away. She taught me stretches to maintain hip flexibility, and massaged the affected muscle until it felt much looser. The whole session was really relaxed and I left feeling rejuvenated. The best massage I've had."
