I met Julie about 8 years ago when I decided to advance my career in Physical Therapy. I was a full-time massage therapist and personal trainer and knew Physical Therapy would give me the opportunity to further help people. I really wanted to learn what was causing my clients to have pain and why they were having movement dysfunctions.

A mutual friend of ours recommended that I meet Julie because she was practicing Postural Restoration and knew that I would enjoy this type of treatment especially because it was different than traditional Physical Therapy. The first day I observed Julie at the clinic, I was hooked. I will never forget that she was working with a high school swimmer who couldn’t get her arm over hear head, which was significantly effecting her stroke and impeding her time. Julie told the girl’s mother that she would restore her shoulder range of motion without even touching her shoulder. I couldn’t wait to see how she was going to do this!

Julie worked on helping her breathe with her diaphragm and getting her ribcage to move properly. At the end of the session, the girl had full shoulder range of motion and my mind was blown! I instantly knew this is what I was looking for and had to learn more. I also realized that some of my current clients would greatly benefit from this type of treatment so I started sending them to see Julie.

We then realized that both of our skill-sets would get faster results and started collaborating to give our clients and patients the best results possible. This collaboration is what eventually led us to develop the Thrive Physiomassage, a combination of working with a Physical Therapist and Massage Therapist to enhance results.
