Testimonials

Some names have been witheld due to the personal nature of the testimonials.

Reiki was always one of those things I wanted to try and had no idea of what exactly I should expect. WOW. I feel like I almost can’t find the words to even describe my experience. Powerful. Emotional . Insane!!! I first met beautiful Judy when a dear friend recommended we try reiki for our super emotional sensitive 4 year old. Instantly my son felt at home and comfortable in Judy’s presence. He knows now when his body requires another reiki session and will ask to visit Judy. He is instantly more grounded, calm and able to verbalise his emotions. I was amazed how quickly we saw the changes and how quickly he would benefit from it.


My own experience has been quite profound . Particular experiences in my past I felt I would never truly let go of. I thought I would always carry a little bit of that guilt or negativity towards certain situations, I thought that was all normal. Yet it was slowly eating me up on the inside. After only two sessions with Judy I realised (mid treatment) that I only feel love and peace towards those people and situations. I don’t even know how this really happened?! My body literally felt lighter and free from that bad energy i was carrying around, it feels really amazing!


My whole family now visit Judy, my husband , my two boys (they will beg to go to Judy’s house!) and we have referred numerous friends. The warmth and healing you feel in a Reiki session with Judy is so wonderful, I can’t recommend her enough. I am so thankful we have found this tool , thank you Judy! 

Dani Doherty - Reiki client and Reiki student

10/10 At the start of the year I really wanted to have some Reiki healing for me and my partner. I googled reiki healers and read Judy’s reviews. I then booked an appointment for both me and my partner and her reviews are spot on. I wish I could put into words the highs i have felt and so many Ah har moments I have gotten to better myself and my relationships with others. My partner likes to keep to himself but has found a real connection working with Judy. ♥ I am so inspired by Judy I wanted to learn how to do Reiki. I just completed Judys Reiki 1 course. It was amazing. Judy provided a real safe, warm and inviting space. We all could feel the love in the room. I learnt so much. I highly recommend Judy if you want to learn or have reiki done she really is a true master. I thank the universe for leading me to Judy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Tracy Leeson - Reiki client and Reiki student

What a fantastic day I had on Saturday. Judy you are an amazing guide/teacher for Reiki. I loved doing the course. The atmosphere was loving, caring and peaceful. I got so much out of the day and would recommend you and your course to anyone. The peace and serenity that I came away with is nothing that I have expereinced before. I cant thank you enough for how I feel

Kyla Wynn - Reiki student

Judy fixed the tightness in my hips and lower back, feel ten years younger.
Sandra Ferguson - Therapeutic Massage client

Judy was introduced to me through a friend who insisted I see Judy for Reiki healing. I had lost all hope of recovering from a rare illness as no doctors could help me. Judy has helped me so much already, and I’ve only had three sessions with her. I will continue to see her as her healing is amazing. She is so kind, compassionate and is solely focused on healing and strengthening me and getting me back to the happy and loving person I was before I got sick. I recommend Judy to anyone who needs healing and positive energy. She truly is an amazing lady and healer.

Belinda Nahona - Reiki client

Judy is a gifted angel on earth! Your life will transform. Each sessions is totally different. She is a talented, insightful, intuitive healer with magic hands. Highly recommended!

Elaine Lim - Reiki client

I’ve felt amazing since doing the level 1 Reiki course! My anxiety has definitely calmed down a lot. I have been keeping up with the chakra days & eating/drinking veggies & fruits of the colours also! I would definitely recommend your reiki course to people wanting to start their reiki journey! It’s such an awesome thing to learn and use, everyone should do it! Thank you so much💛

Maddison Ruby - Reiki student

Judy is an amazing person with a remarkable gift. I have been visiting Figtree Holistic Therapies for a little while and Judy has assisted greatly with my anxiety through Reiki. I really look forward to and enjoy the sessions along with Judy’s insight and feedback/ homework. She is always on point!

Scott Cooper - Reiki client

After trying several different things to no avail to try and help my worsening anxiety, I decided after a friends recommendation to go and see Judy for a reiki session, my only regret about this is that I didn’t do it sooner!  Judy is fantastic, she makes you feel completely at ease and is very intuitive. She has managed in one session to do more for me than any other means tried so far, I can finally see that there is a path to some relief. Thanks Judy I can’t wait for my next session.

Leah Brown - Reiki client

I recommend Figtree Holistic Therapies for self-care on very deep levels. Judy is highly attuned to the individual needs of her clients. Her Reiki healing and massage therapy sessions in my experience have subtle and far reaching effects. I have developed stronger self-boundaries and cleared many events in the past.

Ione Lewis - Reiki & Therapeutic Massage client

At my first Reiki session, I had NO idea what to expect. Knowing that I was always sensitive to the energies around me. I wanted to learn how to tune in and listen to my body and feel myself again. I was sleepy very poorly and riddled with anxiety.  Judy was incredible, listening to my every word attentively and tailoring each session to whatever I needed at that present moment. I have now dropped 2 pant sizes around my stomach (Solar Plexus) area where I was holding onto a lot of my emotional baggage and have dived into some deep emotional healing that I never knew was possible from a conscious level.  Thanks Judy for opening my eyes to the world of Reiki and being such an incredible healer. There are no words that I can use to express my deepest gratitude. Can not recommend her enough xx

Aleesha Poidevin - Reiki client and student

I'm not sure what to say after today's session. Thank you doesn't seem adequate. My deepest gratitude to your amazing self. It was like we were dancing to the same harmony without any sounds. Truly remarkable. I wasn't sure what to expect,  or how to feel, however you certainly ring true to your name  Holistic Therapy. Thank you. 💜

Lisa Wrightson - Reiki client

I'm feeling much better. Thank you lovely xxx

Denise Ryan - Reiki client and student

Thankyou for helping me with my hip/leg.  Since you dug in under my foot I can't believe the difference it has made, I'm not in constant pain anymore, it has relieved so much pain and symptoms I was having, your a wiz lady!!!  Thanks again and I'm looking forward to the 23rd which is my next appointment. xx

MV - Reiki & Therapeutic Massage client and Reiki student

Thanks for today Judy.  I feel really good, grounded and feel like my mind is clear.

Scott Cooper - Reiki client

Judy is the best, I never leave without feeling relaxed, balanced and ready to embrace my somewhat complicated life. I thoroughly recommend Figtree Holistic Therapies.

Johanne Halley - Reiki client

I highly recommend Figtree Holistic Therapies. I have had a number of distance healings over the past few months and the difference it had made to my life is extraordinary. It has made me centered, present and more calm. I feel like I am living in the moment a lot more and getting perspective without reacting so easily. I also find using distance healing is so convenient. I can do it in my own home with no travel time and need to rush out. Ive found distance healing is just the same as having a treatment in person but so much more relaxing being in your own home and convenient. Judy is very talented and I highly recommend her.

Samantha Vicars - Distance Reiki client

Before Figtree Holistic Therapies was recommended to me by a friend, I hadn't even heard of reiki. To say I was a skeptic is a massive understatement. I was stressed, sleeping poorly and felt like I was barely keeping it together. The moment I met Judy, I trusted her as a healer and a confidant. Her intuition and insight is amazing. I still don't really understand how the reiki works, but the results speak for themselves... I am sleeping better, have more energy, more self awareness and more confidence. I feel like a much better version of myself. As an added bonus, I had the most powerful, intense orgasm of my life recently and I'm convinced it's a "side effect" of my reiki treatments. I can't thank you enough. I would highly recommend Judy and her therapy in a heartbeat.

Vanessa McKellar - Reiki client

Judy is an amazing healer she has a great connection with the higher source and you can really feel the love and healing power's of Reiki when you have a treatment. I highly recommend her 💜💙💚💛 she has such a beautiful soul and has changed my life.

Maree Noble - Reiki client

Highly recommend Judy as a reiki therapist! Fantastic and so professional.

Maria Longo - Reiki client

A top trainer I was talking to not long ago said you need to know what your horse and you both need to focus on. Physical work, mental work or something else. I’m pretty good at focusing on the physical work but today I focused on the energetic. I had the most AWESOME session with one of my best mates, Judy. We’ve know each other for over 20 years and she really is just a brilliant therapist. We’re sooo lucky that she comes to Sydney once a month to do sessions. I highly recommend that you book in with her…and do it now! Spaces are limited and she’s in high demand. Thanks Judes!!!

Rebecca Ashton - Reiki & Distance Reiki client

Had my first massage with Judy today, absolutely amazing. Would highly recommend.

Belinda Cooper - Therapeutic Massage client

Feeling refreshed and relaxed after my Reiki session. I have this urge to hug everybody and tell them how much I love and appreciate them! Feel like my heart is bursting with joy! Thanks Jude xxx

Jenny Kaslik - Reiki and Distance Reiki client

I found Judy and her space at Figtree Holistic Therapies to be both warm and welcoming from the moment I first arrived. The safe space she creates and holds through a high level of professionalism is ideal for deep levels of healing and self work. Through her extensive training, experience and own intuition Judy has helped guide and support me along my own healing journey. I would highly recommend to anyone who is even slightly interested in the wonderful work she offers.


Amie O'Connor - Reiki client and student

I may be a little biased because Judy is my daughter, but I love her Reiki treatments. I usually feel either really relaxed or full of energy, ready to do whatever it is I need to do. I also sleep much better after a session. I would recommend her treatments to anyone who would like to feel relaxed and generally feel better about life.

Kathy Mazsa - Reiki & Distance Reiki client

I’ve experienced Reiki from Judy over the last few years and have felt a deep and profound connection to soul. She has most recently helped with distance healing following the loss of my father.  I cannot recommend her therapy and compassion enough.

Jeremy Kent - Reiki & Distance Reiki client

Judy’s reiki treatments are so amazing. From the moment I arrived she made me feel so comfortable and I was able to relax immediately. Her healing room is very peaceful and Judy holds the space beautifully. The reiki energy was powerful, I felt some deep shifts occur and it was great to be able to discuss this afterwards. I highly recommend Judy’s treatment , treat yourself today!

Katherine Watson - Reiki client

I have known Judy very deeply for about ten years or so. Words cannot describe how highly I esteem her. Her work ethic and drive to always get it right whilst still acknowledging we are all different and using diverse approaches for all... well she is major league as a practitioner and as a human being. Highly Recommended.

Dr Susie Anthony - CEO SuperHEROCode, Reiki teacher, mentor and client

Happy birthday Jude. I hope you've had a lovely day. Much love from the UK. Hey I run a children's craft group now and each time a child comes we give them a crystal. The crystal that belongs to the chakra we worked on in the yoga before the crafting. We also do a meditation at the end, holding our magic stone which teaches the kids how and when to use the crystal. And all this happens in a room I've cleared with reiki and sage before they arrive and called in great intentions. You are at the bottom of a lot of those tools I now use. You are a very special person , thank you.  Love you from all the way over here xxxx

Debbie Christensen - Reiki and Therapeutic Massage client and Reiki student

Thanks for the most amazing massage yesterday.

Bonnie Cooze - Therapeutic Massage client

Hi Judy, just a quick hello.... Im trying to help a friend who is suffering panic attacks at the moment so I've shown him your website and given him your details. :-) He's been a dear friend for a long time. I am so glad I had Reiki, I'm doing so well at university and loving life, and I know you helped me along my way.  Many thanks, Freya x

Freya Virdee - Reiki and Therapeutic Massage client and Reiki student

3 years ago Tuesday was the day my husband proposed, but it also means it's 3 years since I was at my utter lowest (not because of the proposal!) My aniexity was at it's utter peek and I felt very helpless, lost and completely exhausted, drowning in this thing I couldn't control. My aniexty was/is all linked to sleep and with babies and flying hours I spiralled into worry and panic. But that day also symbolises a turning point, my road to recovery. It's been a looooooong journey and lots of trying everything available but I found a way out and things that helped. I wanted to share because you are not alone, don't suffer in silence or wait til it gets so bad... reach out, try things, something will work for you. For me it was wonderful guidance from my amazing Reiki teacher Judy and hypnotherapy from the fantastic Kirsty that helped me get back to being me. And my family and friends who listened to me even though I felt like that was all I EVER talked about once I'd finally open up and drove you all crazy! And of course my husband, who was my constant rock and gave me love and support always. Thank you all, you are my angels xxxxxx ...But had I not suffered I wouldn't have found Judy and her Reiki, or built strong relationships with my family from having Reiki, or become the person I am today. Who is completely different from the one before it all.... everything happens for a reason and no matter how hard it gets, it will pass x

Carly Govier - Reiki client and student

I had been suffering with knee problems for several years.  Doctors finally identified it was related to my back and after trying various treatments with no success, I was having to resort to surgery.  Around that time I started to have Raindrop Technique.  Not only did I feel purgerd, detoxed and reinvigorated, but after only 3 treatments my knee and back were fine and have remained so for well over a year.

Carol Hopperton - Therapeutic Massage and Raindrop Technique client

Amazing massage.  Thanks so much Judy.  Feel great.

Judy McClatchey - Therapeutic Massage client

Thank goodness for the reiki you sent me on Friday night, I slept like a baby, woke up early on Saturday, feeling happy, full of energy, with no sign of my usual morning depressive feelings and not wanting to get out of bed. I was humming to myself all day while cleaning, and Sunday was just as pleasant. I have not been walking for weeks, but on Sunday I suggested to my friend we go for a long walk, taking my grand daughter with us in the stroller, while she slept. That tranquil feeling must have radiated to her too, because she slept for 2 hours!

Kathy Modrovich - Distance Reiki client

I have received Reiki Healing from Judy for the last eighteen months.  These sessions have been on a regular basis and every time I come away feeling so much better and thoroughly refreshed ready to face whatever challenges may arise!  I am full of admiration for Judy's abilities and her great integrity in all she undertakes.  Judy ran Reiki Share sessions with groups of people and gently encouraged those of us attending to talk and share our experiences.  She has great wisdom, which she imparts in a down to earth manner.  She is generous with her time and energies and always has time to listen and offer very sound advice.  The path Judy has chosen to follow is not an easy one but she gets great joy and revels in all that she does.  I whole-heartedly recommend Judy to anyone who may be fortunate enough to enjoy Reiki Healing with her.  I shall certainly continue to do so.

Eileen Rayner - Reiki client and student

Judy I wanted to thank you for a really good treatment and my shoulder pain has gone!!  I would like to book three more sessions if I could.

GL - Therapeutic Massage client

Hi Judy. Thoroughly enjoyed the course on Sunday. Driving home I had lots of the same thoughts I have usually but I had no real emotional response to anything!!! It was like a huge load had been lifted from my shoulders and I didn't have a care or worry in the world! I have been feeling like that ever since. Last night I recorded a Reiki session onto my MP3 and that is how I am intending to do it! I will let you know how it goes. Had a great day yesterday and usually the things which might annoy me/get my back up/push my buttons- didn't at all and I could see the positives in everything!

That date in August sounds perfect for me I hope that we can do it then. You will also see me after an 8 week holiday and lots of Reiki practice... I image I will seem quite different!!!! Thanks again for everything.

Louise Sobey - Reiki student

Hi Judy! I'm brilliant thank you, I still have a few times when I get tight chested but apart from that, I am fine and really making my life the way I've always dreamed it! Fun is round every corner here and my career is really starting to grow. I miss our talks and hope to book a massage or reiki session when I'm back at Easter. Hope you are well and happy! And I owe you a very big thank you for all your help and guidance.

FV - Reiki and Therapeutic Massage client

Hi Judy - many, many thanks for a wonderful day - I cannot express how much I enjoyed it. The feeling when I entered the room was amazing - I just knew that I had to be there. You made the day so relaxing and enjoyable.  I was rather nervous at first but you soon put me at ease.  I am looking forward to the next Reiki level. I slept extremely well and I have felt so relaxed all day at work.

Rubina Wakefield - Reiki student

I wish I'd never had one of your massages when I came to visit because every one I've had in London since was nowhere near as good!

Simonetta Harding - Therapeutic Massage client

I am extremely calm and at peace at the moment - which I can completely thank you for.  Believe the Reiki made a huge difference and I feel very grounded and able to give (name witheld) the support she needs instead of losing it!...Thank you again so so much for the other day (session perfectly timed!)

CW - Reiki client and student

That was uncanny.  I was just thinking about you, and the amazing effect Reiki has had on me from yesterday, when your text suddenly arrived.  I was starting to want to break the negative cycle before I saw you, for my own good.  But after I saw you my whole outlook was a lot more positive and today even more so, it's amazing!..,So I'm amazed.  Thank you so much.

NH - Reiki client and student

Hi Jude, Sooooo good to see you today.  I feel like I have been picked up, hugged and sorted out and everything is going to be ok!  Thank you for sharing your wonderful gift and giving me what I needed...I'm feeling the love.  Now to put it into practice!  Have a great weekend xxx

Susie Yardley - Reiki client and student

Judy is a dynamic teacher who enthusiastically imparts her wisdom and knowledge of Reiki in her classes. Her fun-loving spirit coupled with her dedication allows her to instruct students while also making her classes fun and easy to understand. She has the ability to be both inspirational and unpretentious at the same time. Judy has had a deep impact on me, as I am sure she has had on countless others who have had the privilege of knowing her. They have experienced her work and have been blessed by her presence.  Friendship, love,wisdom, compassion and fun are just some of the things that come to mind when I think of Judy.

Arlene Townsend - Reiki student

Thanks for today, you really are a gem!  Feeling a massive amount of stress relief & felt brave enough to go to the hairdressers and have about 5 years worth of growth removed!!!  I feel more myself, despite the lack of hair!!!  Thanks again.

HD - Reiki client

Judy, thanks for a great session this morning. Body and soul completely refreshed.

Wendy Smith - Therapeutic Massage client

I have had many massages over the last eight years, most of them for work related muscular aches and pains, particularly in my neck and shoulders. I am a very keen cyclist and have the need for deep leg massage on occasions. I can honestly say that the massages I receive from Judy are the most invigorating, but relaxing, leaving my muscles very supple and enable me to continue with my many miles of cycling, even though I am well into my 60's. I can highly recommend Judy for her massaging professionalism, together with her good sense of humour.

Chris Hawkins - Therapeutic Massage client

I wanted to send a message to say how grateful I am for the experience I had.  It was so incredible, I am feeling vitalised, refreshed and even more awake than ever. Driving back into my hometown, things just did not look the same.  Everything was brighter and had more clarity.  Thanks so much for teaching me, you were a great teacher, not too serious and passed over the knowledge in a way I remembered. I like the handouts they have been especially helpful for my own personal teachings. Everyone showed compassion and understanding for the problems that I brought to light and I was especially pleased that you were willing to assist if anything cropped up in the future.

Damian Gill - Reiki student

Just to let you know today's meeting went very well, all calm!  I think yesterday's treatment helped so much.

Helen Newby - Reiki client

In October 2007 I started to experience some very unpleasant symptoms including nausea, headaches, abdominal pain and irritable bowel and bladder, which was diagnosed as "irritable bowel syndrome".   The symptoms persisted, so I decided to try Reiki healing.  I chose to go to Judy because my daughter had attended a trial session with Judy and  told me that it had been a most profound and amazing experience, she had felt so calm and euphoric when she left.  Her boyfriend who was rather sceptical of all things complementary also had a session and was amazed by his experience.  As a bonus, my daughter was now free of the painful periods and PMT that she had been having.  During my first treatment I felt wonderfully relaxed.  Afterwards Judy gave me advice on how to cope physically and psychologically with my symptoms.  I went back for another treatment - again experiencing deep relaxation and warmth and thankfully after that session my abdominal pains disappeared and I have been free of them since.  It is such a relief.  I am very grateful to Judy for her compassion and expertise.  Instead of being in pain and anxious I feel I am now back to my normal self and unrestricted by tummy problems.

Luana Law - Reiki client

(Reiki Level 1) I was going into it with an inquisitive, open, yet sceptical mind.  Seeing, feeling, experiencing actual proof that we have an aura around and within us which we have control over, was for me one of the largest highlights. The calmness and relaxed attitude in the way reiki is felt/experienced and delivered made me feel quite cleaned and wiped (in a nice way) out, and more in control of the 'real' you. I'd recommend Reiki with Judy to anyone, who especially would like to find their true self, and to better their true self.


(Reiki Level 2) This Reiki is powerful stuff.  I'd just like to thank you again. When I'm ready I'd look forward to booking Reiki 3 with you.  Thank you again for your help, guidance and teaching, you are truly great at what you do.

Dave Benmore - Reiki student

Thank you for my taster session. The session helped me so much in such a short time.  I look forward to my visit next week. I had no pre-conceptions and was amazed at the result. The peace that came over me and the low energy I felt free of after such an awful year made me feel lighter. I have told my sister-in- law about you and Reiki as she has MS. Also my daughter will be coming to see you.  Many thanks.

BB - Reiki client
