Julia is a certified graduate of the Carnegie Institute. She has been a practicing massage therapist since 2005 and has gained experience in corporate, concert, and spa settings. She uses her knowledge, strength, intuition, and some of the warmest hands in the business to treat her clients.
Her love of music began when as a child her parents, who worked in the music industry, often took her to concerts and summer festivals. But it wasn't until a few years ago when she got the chance to provide massage in the green room of a music festival in New Hampshire that she was able to render her childhood passion with her new career. "When I began to ask the musicians what instrument they played a light just went on for me. I knew which muscles were over used. I knew how to help them".
She has received training in and looks forward to a continued study in the following modalities:
