BODY ESSENCE offers a range of individually tailored therapies and holistic treatments from the comfort of a professional treatment room, in the home of therapist, Julie Haigh MCThA, DipNN. Located in the pretty village of Almondbury, Body Essence is within easy reach of Huddersfield town centre. 


"As a therapist with over twenty years' experience, I believe that regular holistic treatments can help prevent or alleviate muscle tension, tension headaches, sciatica, stress-related illnesses, anxiety and depression, thus improving and maintaining health and wellbeing. At an initial consultation, I discuss with clients the full range of therapies on offer - and the potential benefits of each - and together, we agree an individually tailored solution." Julie Haigh
