I love to relax the nervous system while restoring achy muscles and allowing the body to come back into balance, while listening carefully and proceeding with awareness to give a centered experience.- Juliann

The comment I hear most often about my work is that it perfectly blends therapeutic massage with deep relaxation. I strive to give each person body work that meets their needs for healing and allows them to leave feeling more comfortable in their skin, more connected with themselves, and more whole. The styles I integrate into my work include Deep Tissue Therapy, Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Craniosacral Massage.
People come to me because they want support in the midst of life’s stresses and want to feel well. Some have had injuries and want to heal fully and speedily. Many want to feel great keeping up with activities that they love. Others have chronic conditions that benefit from more structural balance. Massage offers so much relief to someone in pain. I also feel honored and thrilled to work with prenatal clients in their journey toward giving birth.
In my life, personal growth is entwined with massage. I came to massage out of a need for healing. My body was chronically tight from scoliosis, and full of partially healed injuries from sports. I was feeling the stress of leaving a doctoral program in Sociology that just wasn’t the right fit for me.
I soaked up massage. I loved learning about it, receiving it, watching my body and spirit heal from it. I began to feel great in my body so that I could move freely into my life. I began to feel well. My body felt more connected and whole. Giving massage felt great too; it allowed me to work in a state of flow. I could be acutely aware and attune my hands to the person on my massage table.
This ability to be in flow only deepens with over a decade of experience. My hands read the body with greater fluency and the right techniques flow with greater fluidity. The experience is rooted in science, study, and years of practice, but it has come to feel like magic.
My work is always evolving. The human body is fascinating. There is no end to learning about and exploring new techniques, body conditions, mindfulness and movement. Right now my work influenced by my daily practice of Qigong, listening to interviews with experts, and taking workshops on movement.
A full life restores me and recharges me with more to give. Besides massage, I fill my life with my husband and son, dog, 2 cats and chickens. I spend time painting, drawing, hiking and biking.
