Hi and thank you for visiting my web page. My name is Judy Grier and I love to share my passion for alternative and complimentary healing arts with others.
My journey into the practice of massage, yoga, and meditation for healing began many years ago after I was injured in a car accident. While traditional medical care most certainly saved my life, it couldn’t provide me with the mind/body healing from trauma that I so desperately needed.
So I began a lifelong journey of exploring various alternative modalities and their effects on mind and body integration and self healing. Along the way I have studied massage therapy and energy work, at The Natural Health Institute, yoga and meditation at The Kripalu Center, completing a 500 hour yoga teacher training and most recently studied sound healing massage & meditation with Patti Pellerito at The Center of Sound.
I have had the good fortune to share my love of yoga in over 6000 hours of teaching yoga and meditation classes to students of all levels including advanced yoga teacher training programs. My meditation practice is grounded both in Tantric Yoga traditions and Buddhist practices of Metta and Mindfulness. I has studied meditation with Stephen Cope, Sharon Salzberg and Thich Nhat Hanh in the Buddhist tradition and Tantra Mantra initiation with Pandit Rajmani Tigunait of the Himalayan Institute.
I have recently completed over 90 hours of sound healing practices with Patti Pellerito, BCTMB, CSH from Center of Sound in St Louis. Incorporating sound meditation into my teaching has been a blessing and I am grateful to be able to sharing this simple yet profound technique with individuals from all walks of life in my local Cape Girardeau, Southeast Missouri community as well as my online community. I invite you to join me for an in person soundbath, workshop or private session in yoga or sound meditation, or an online class via Zoom Class Room .

Julia D. Helton, LMT is dedicated to helping others manage their pain and tension. A graduate of Metro Business College class of 2014, she’s been a licensed massage therapist for 8 years. Her passion for learning pain patterns led her to continue her education with Coaching The Body Institute of Evanston, Illinois. Taking courses such as Thai Fundamentals, Hands Free Thai Massage, and Functional Anatomy has deepened her understanding of referral pain and retraining the nervous system to relax overworked muscles. Julia is drawn to Thai Massage because it allows a deeper meditative massage while gently passive stretching. She also enjoys offering Swedish, Deep Tissue, Prenatal, and Lymphatic massages.
During 2020 Julia became interested in sound healing vibrations and wanted to offer a service to her clients that didn’t have to include hands on massage. She now offers Sound Vibration Lounge sessions to clients. Her vision for creating Well–Being Healing Arts is to offer more creative healing serivices to the community such as sound healing and movement meditation classes. When she’s not massaging Julia is spending time with her pets, traveling, hula-hooping, and fire performing. Contact her with questions at Jdhelton2011@gmail.com
