Julie has a broad interest in wellness, rooted in exposure to many kinds of alternative health philosophies from an early age. To this history, she adds her own personal experiences with chronic pain and overcoming health issues. All of which has helped her become more attune to the sometimes delicate nature of those in need of her services.

​Her first goal is to provide for the whole, not simply to symptoms or parts. With the knowledge that everything is connected Julie uses her extensive training and experience to work in a holistic way while affirming the importance of scientifically researched and proven methods.

She has developed a unique and effective style incorporating trigger point therapy, deep tissue work, fascial release, joint mobilizations and hydrotherapy with basic Swedish techniques and is currently focused on the slow release technique known as Fascial Restructuring (TM). By prompting muscles and connective tissues to gently and painlessly return to their natural alignment, this technique has proven very effective for people with chronic pain, surgical scars, sports injury recovery and posture realignment from working at a desk.

Julie graduated from a 2300-hour Massage Therapy program in early 2011 and is currently a member of l'Association des Massothérapeutes du Québec. Furthermore, she is a provider for Blue Cross and welcomes members of the RCMP, refugees and Veterans. She encourages communication for anyone who has questions, concerns or is not able to find the right appointment time, all calls and emails will be promptly answered.

Fascial Restructuring

Fascial Restructuring™ (FR™) is an innovative new approach to manual therapy and the treatment of athletic/traumatic injuries. Its goal is to reduce or eliminate chronic pain and stiffness by releasing adhesions and realigning bones, restoring the body to a more fluid, balanced and aligned state. It is a direct, sequential, systematic approach to fascial therapy, relying on several foundational principles that facilitate the proper and effective release of adhesion at every level in the human body - myofascial (muscular), neural/dural (nerve), periosteal (bone), visceral/stromal (organ) and articular (joint). Adhesion will often form within and between any of these tissues from a number of causes, and in such cases, must be released in order to provide effective, lasting results. Fascial Restructuring™ is unquestionably a very deep form of fascial therapy, however, by design it is much less painful than most other therapies that target adhesion. Additionally, unlike most traditional adhesion release techniques, it is not limited to the release of myofascial or ligamentous adhesions. By targeting other structures in the body, the stage is set for healing to occur at a much deeper level. © Founder of FR™ Adam Climie, BA, RMT, DOMP. **Who can benefit from Fascial Restructuring™? • Athletes or physical Labour workers; Those suffering from chronic or recurring pain/discomfort; Those with postural imbalances; Anyone with scar tissue, from trauma or surgery; Anyone who does repetitive actions and movements: Sitting at a desk; Driving long distances or often; Texting, laptop, tablet overuse; Running, Rowing, Skiing, Cycling.**
