About Julie

During the beginning of my massage training, as I was developing a strong background in Deep Tissue and pain management techniques, I was fortunate to be able to intern and work in McKenzie-Willamette Hospital in Oregon. This has led me to a career of being able to help people during and after both acute and chronic medical issues. I create a warm, relaxing and compassionate setting for you while offering highly specialized treatments.

Having worked in several spas, I also bring with me a devotion to the wonderful qualities of a beautiful environment and the sense of ‘getting away’ if only for an hour and a half!

Why choose Me?

While their are many wonderful massage therapists, few offer you the option of safe and thorough knowledge of the Lymphatic system and years of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Reiki,Trigger Point and La Stone Therapy.

The best of both worlds?

If you ever had a lymph node removed, radiation, at risk of or have Lymphedema, I am fully certified to work with you using Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD).

The best of both worlds…. and  a rare combination….I offer you the opportunity to receive a combination of massage techniques while keeping your lymph system safely cared for.

Frankly, massage therapists are given minimal or no instruction on the lymph system which leaves people who have had radiation and/or lymph node surgery at high risk for inappropriate treatments. This can include many adverse effects such as increased risk or exacerbation of lymphedema.With 160 hours of training in MLD, I create the safest place for you to receive the best of both worlds. Enjoy a great massage like you are used to getting and Manual Lymph Drainage when and where needed! As Vodder certified therapists we are required to complete a Recertification course every 2 years, making us one of the only Lymphatic Therapists with this requirement. This keeps our manual skills at their best and current with the latest science.

I am licenced in both Penna. and Oregon and nationally certified with NCBTMB. I am an active member of the American Massage Therapy Assoc., Navalt (Vodder Certified National Association) and S4OM (Society for Oncology Massage).
