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
