“I have had hundreds of massages in my life (particularly as an athlete in college) and I have come to have expectations around what a massage needs to accomplish and how a massage therapist accomplishes it. Julie ranks at the top of massage therapists for me. She brings a wonderful depth of knowledge to her practice, so I trust in her a great deal…But what really differentiates her from others is her level of genuine care and uncanny ability to find what you need.” – Tracee
Massage Therapy is the Science & Poetry of Touch-Based Healing
Certified massage therapy requires a comprehensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, massage-related pathology, neurology, and kinesiology. The most effective treatments combine this education with a keen ability to “listen”—not only to the client’s complaints, but also to bodily cues.
We all hold stress and emotional traumas in our bodies, and massage is an incredible modality for releasing and healing it. My ability to intuitively “tune-in” can help and reveal what’s behind the pain, allowing us to work on a wellness protocol and relieve your symptoms.
When clients fully commit to their health through incorporating massage into their health repertoire, amazing things happen. I’ve watched clients completely reverse the effects of chronic pain, deep depression, and clear long held trauma-related issues.
“Julie asked me what she needed to focus on, and somehow managed to find and describe the stresses I put on my body without me having to say anything. I left feeling relaxed and POSITIVE. For the first time I got in my car and drove home without looking at the clock or my phone for emails. #refreshed” – Steven
Types of Treatments
Calm your mind, body, and spirit with my signature Swedish massage. I work out pain and discomfort in the body using long effleurage strokes and gentle to normal pressure. This improves circulation, diminishes stress, and relieves muscle tension.
Perfect for: first time massage sessions, stress-relief, deep relaxation, anxiety and depression, improved sleep, and lowering blood pressure.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage builds on my signature treatment by releasing chronic muscle tension and increasing range of motion with deep pressure. This therapeutic treatment focuses on painful or stiff areas of the body and relieves patterns of physical stress.
Perfect for: chronic pain, injury-based relief, athletes, chronic illness, and increased range of motion.
Hot Stone Massage
Melts away muscle tension using the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at acupressure points on the body. The combination of heat transmission and traditional massage is extremely healing and promotes a deep state of relaxation.
Perfect for: stress and tension relief and encouraging blood flow.
Shiatsu is a traditional Chinese massage performed fully clothed. It combines a calming mix of stretching, rocking, and compression. In addition to providing tension relief, Shiatsu works by moving “ki” (also known as “chi”) through the meridians of the body.
Perfect for: tension relief, body balancing, depression and anxiety and anyone who prefers a clothed massage.
The soothing touch of massage during pregnancy will allow you to let go of stress caused by shifting posture, hormone fluctuations, and increased weight. Must be past first trimester.
Perfect for:, Pregnancies after the 1st trimester, reducing depression or anxiety, hormone balancing, relieving muscle aches and joint pain, improving labor outcomes and newborn health.
There are points or areas on the feet (hands and ears) that correspond to every organ, gland and system of the body. Reflexology is a method of using the feet (hands and ears) as a way to access the entire body. A great add-on to a swedish or deep tissue session.
Perfect for: Eliminating toxins, stimulating central nervous system, preventing migraines, inducing a deep state of relaxation.
Paraffin Wax for Hands & Feet
Paraffin wax is a deeply therapeutic treatment that applies moist heat to hands or feet. Your hands or feet are submerged in the warm liquid wax of a small spa, which hardens slightly on your skin and is gently removed after a few minutes. Paraffin wax is extremely comforting, eases muscles, and moisturizes skin.
Perfect for: arthritis, osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, joint stiffness and pain.
