Julie Routier

I am the light that comes from the sky, I am the child that is born of the universe, I am the roots that holds the tree grounded in the earth, I am unconditional love, I am unique, I am me…

Hello and Welcome,

I am Julie Routier the founder of Essensky the School of Healing and Natural Therapies and a Healer. I am excited to share my mission with you. I have had my own organic and natural health practice since 2012 and have had so much satisfaction in guiding many beautiful souls on their journey to health and healing. This has made my life incredible - and I am now developing the next step of it and sharing my skills with others.

Let me share with you a bit of myself... I left my home country of Belgium in 2007 and have been enjoying living in Aotearoa since 2010 and gained my citizenship in 2018 which I am so grateful for. The person I am today, believe as much about the physical and the energetic side of the body, because of my childhood and my life journey, to me it is so important that we align both systems to be balanced. The connection I had with the other world, growing with it and understanding what other could not see, sense or ear is why I am guiding people in that journey and give tools that will serve them in their life. I have a deep understanding of anatomy, physiology, nutrition as I study dance and became a professional at age seventeen and developed skills I use in my practice today. After that, I trained to become an assistant nurse as I have always been interested in health and working on the body. This study furthered my knowledge of the human form in regards to nutrition, psychology, biology and anatomy. Then I became a massage therapist to understand how to work with the psychic side of me which open the door to my healing abilities and that has been incredible.

I established myself early as a therapist and created my own clinic at 24 years of age. With time I began to understand why I was so drawn to this art, and why my appointments were booked out far in advance with a long waiting list. I discovered what differentiated my work, was that I was able to feel energy blockages in the body and guide their release. This kept my clients returning, it gave me a long list of referrals and as a response, my clinic grew into a multi-therapist health centre.

While developing my business, I learned how to train my therapists these nuanced skills essential for a holistic clinic. I did this because until now, I always felt there was something missing in the way many therapists are taught. The energetic aspect is the underlying element that ensures you meet your client’s needs, and that they return as loyal clients. Getting the balance between the energetic and physical aspects of a treatment, makes the perfect mix.

Working with, and experiencing the practices of many therapists has shown me that there is a gap of understanding in this area. I have always been helping others since a young age and I feel that educating about how to provide treatments that address the body, mind, spirit and soul - is my purpose. This was confirmed when I received the message to open a school and share my knowledge with those drawn to the path of healing.

This was a very strong message given to me and since then, I have typed up and filmed all the techniques needed to become a holistic practitioner. My knowledge available to be shared with you so that you can become the being you are meant to be, either on a personal level if you read my book, through guidance and healing session or professionally by joining my school. This course is not only teaching you effective and healing skills, it also guides you to find your true self and align you to your life purpose.
