Julie Hughes MA. RMT
Julie started this practice out of pure passion for helping others feel their very best through their physical, emotional and mental state of being. Julie's journey within the health field began with simple Nutrition courses to learn how to first heal from the inside, out. Next, she found herself on the path of Reiki, a gentle hands-on, no-touch technique and powerful approach to help the mind and body heal through the transference of energy. She was then drawn to the world of Yoga and it's strength in healing through postures, breathing and mindfulness. Finally, her education led her to Massage Therapy, where she'd finds herself using all of the above means of healing in one form or another and combining them with the effectiveness of the manual manipulation of soft tissues and joints in order to promote physiological changes in the body and great healing benefits.
Julie possesses a diploma with honors after graduating from a private college The International Academy of Massage in Ottawa Ontario in 2014. This 3 year intensive program includes the extensive education of the human body such as anatomy, physiology, pathology, myology, neuroscience as well as over 50 treatable conditions and injuries. After over 2300 hours of education and hands on clinical experience, she is proud to have been a member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapist of Ontario (RMT) and is currently a Professional Massage Therapist of Quebec registered with Le Réseau des Massothérapeutes Professionnels du Québec.
In addition she is a Certified Reiki Level III Practitioner with the successful completion of the Reiki level I, II and III certification courses with Julie Desmarais & Associates in Ottawa Ontario and a Certified Yanumoja Yoga Instructor with the Three Winds Academy 200 hour certification course.
