Julia is a Soft Tissue Therapist who specialises in Myofascial Release Technique (MRT) & Dr. Vodder Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD).
Julia has also taken an interest in ‘Fascia’ and has been on many courses learning applications to help structurally alter this impressive connective tissue. Having suffered with chronic back problems and finding MFR a huge help in rehabilitation, Julia’s goal is to give the client a sense of fluidity and freedom from restriction that may have been present for many years. Long standing injuries, chronic aches and pains, conditions such as fibromyalgia and autoimmune diseases such as scleroderma can be helped using MFR.
Therapy may involve working on areas of the body away from the symptomatic problem, but since the Fascia is a tough connective tissue which spreads throughout the body as a 3-dimensional web from head to foot weaknesses can occur anywhere within this system. Lifestyle, poor posture, deskbound jobs, specific sports are classic examples of how problems can occur, so techniques used will aim to change its architectural properties to help meet the demands put upon it.
