About Us

My massage philosophy is to relieve stress and tension through skillful and intuitive touch and to make sure that every client leaves my studio feeling relaxed, refreshed and energized.

I firmly believe in listening to my clients and paying careful attention to their individual needs and concerns.  Massages should incorporate input from the client so that together, we can produce the best possible results.  I hope to hear from you soon...

I enjoyed my session with Julie she was very nice and very helpful.
by Ronique on May 06
She took the time to determine what my exact needs were and tailored my massage. All the extras were included in the original price, unlike other places and I tried cupping for the first time. The hot stone was so good and I also loved the pink salt ball. thanks Julienne ;)

Christin was a lovely, relatable person who really seemed to care about my troubled spots. She was very accommodating and tailored the room temperature, smells and sounds to me. She even followed up with me a few days later to check on my troubled spots!

Julie Was Absolutely Incredible! As Soon As Met Her, I Knew She Was A Perfect Fit. If You Love Having Your Back & Feet Especially Worked On, You Want Her. She Loves What She Does, She's Fantastic At It, If I Could, I'd Be Getting An Hour Session Weekly Just On My Feet Alone. She's That Good.
