Providing relief from trauma so you can fully live your beautiful life.
I'm Julia Suh.
Welcome to Nourished by Hand!
As a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist (BCST), I help people live more fully and joyfully in their bodies through mindful, intuitive, and perceptive touch. It is my honor to support your wellness.
Together, let's explore what fuller health looks like for you.
My sessions interweave bodywork and BCST, creating the conditions for energy to move or energy to still. The intention for each session is to meet you where you are at, with presence and awareness of the larger forces of health and wholeness.
Gentle yet profound wellness.
I met Julia at a time in my life when I was truly suffering. My chronic pain had increased to the point where I could no longer cope. I tried so many things (PT, pain doctor, injections, acupuncture, meds, chiropractor, massage, yoga, myofascial release etc) and nothing helped. The only thing that helped were my sessions with Julia. I had received craniosacral in the past but discovered she practiced biodynamic, a type I hadn’t heard of. With her knowledge and compassion she not only soothed my pain but helped my body learn to better regulate itself. I am no longer suffering. It is not an overstatement to say that she has changed my life for the better.
I have been seeing Julia for over a year now. I found my way to Julia after many years of healing my childhood trauma. But there was always something missing after years of therapy, reliving the trauma and sitting in the uncomfortable. I still felt an overwhelming sense of sadness and depression that I could only escape from in moments of time. Julia changed all that for me. After one session I felt calmer. I remember saying to her at the end of the session that I was not sure what just happened, but I felt more relaxed and calmer than I ever remember feeling. It only got better. After a year of sessions, I no longer feel the weight of dread and sadness. She has guided me though some terrible memories and difficult times. Julia’s kindness, empathy, gentle touch, and skill in her healing practices has truly changed my life. Her compassion, wisdom, calm voice and beautiful smile reflects the amazing spirit and truly authentic person that she is. I am honored to know her, and I feel so fortunate to be working on my healing journey with her. - Aneita Rodriguez
I came to Julia to unwind the physical and emotional trauma of a miscarriage and to continue work in a modality that supports the ongoing work of healing and transformation. I immediately felt that I was in good hands. My experience with Julia is of someone who grounds her work in gentle inquiry, calm holding, deep listening, and careful reflection. When COVID made it impossible to continue our sessions in person, she began offering remote sessions. I did not know what to expect from these sessions. I knew I would miss the healing that touch offers. But the removal of the chirpings that bodies do when they contact each other cleared a path into a deeper level of meditation and recognition. At the end of these sessions she often makes an observation or asks a question that reveals something fundamental that was asking for my attention but that I had not previously been able to name or approach. I am endlessly grateful to have found my way to her and to be guided by her wisdom, practice, and commitment to open heartedness during these challenging times.
Julia’s work has been life changing for me. It has helped me immensely in my personal and professional life, brigning me the healing and strength I needed to take both to the next level. Julia herself is both wise and gentle. You won’t find a more trustworthy healer and you’ll know it the moment you meet her. It’s not easy to describe the craniosacral experience - let alone how it works - but if you want to improve your ability to be present in the moment, alive in your body, authentic around others, at peace with yourself, and to perform at your best, I highly recommend you try it. --Lea Thau
I received a brain injury and was in a coma for several days. When I awoke I found I had brain damage and some memory issues. So I sought out some help with CST from Julia.
Craniosacral Therapy helps me stay connected to all parts of my body in my daily life. improvements since my injury. I know it has an impact because after each session I feel refreshed and connected to my entire body. My life is different because of Craniosacral Therapy because I feel independent and empowered. Craniosacral Therapy has helped me strive to keep improving in all aspects of my life.
Julia is gifted in energy work, therapeutic massage, and craniosacral therapy. She understands the subtle relationship between the body and the emotions. Her care is nurturing and healing, and goes far beyond standard massage therapy. I regularly refer patients to her for co-management, and recommend her for anyone looking for deeper healing.
