New Year. New You.

Tackle 2018.

A big thank you to all of you as the New Year begins!  Let’s move in 2018!

Wishing you a Happy New Year Dear Clients and Friends!

As another year comes to a close, I want to thank each and every one of you for a great year, and I hope your New year is full joy and happiness!

This last year at Intuitve Touch Massage has been a busy one…

I have moved rooms (same location), went under a bathroom remodel (goodbye throne), struggled and faced some strong insurance and billing challenges (big bully insurance), and incorporated some great new tools to add to our work together; Tok Sen, Biomechenics, and MET Balanceing for the Lumbar and Sacrum. It has been such a treat to see how the work we do, can and does improve your daily lives.

Heading into 2018, its a time for new, or re-invented goals about your well being and quality of life. It’s time to renew your vow to yourself that you matter, that your health and wellness matters. If I can help you by being a part of that, please allow me to! Some goals I encourage you to incorporate that impact your massage life:

Drink more water. Water helps be the stream to flush out toxins in your body as well as hydrate and moisturize during this dry season.

Get good sleep. These darker days are here to help us clock in good sleep! Even though a 60 minute massage is equivalent to 8 hours of rest recovery, your body needs sleep to restore itself. The rest will also help your massage not be so intense.

Move. If I suggested or recommended some self help exercises, try to make a routine and bring them back! Move your joints, go for a walk. Take time to stretch it out! Moving is another transit system that will support the detox of buildup from say holiday eating, and toxic waste from our daily lives. Toxic waste that intensifies our pain levels. Remember that experiencing a little discomfort from gently moving, is ok and beneficial for the greater good, to removing that toxic waste and buildup.

Get massage. I, as your greatest advocate for how massage benefits you, cannot say all this mumbo-jumbo, without pressing on the importance of getting work done when you need it. I challange you this next year of 2018, to be a better listener to your body, to respond by booking your appointment at the time that you need it. To aligning your priorities to make this important (as much as your life allows). Being attentive and aware, is only going to have a positive spiral affect on your life. Instead of doing big spring cleanings, you will be wiping up a spill. Now doesn’t that sound about perfect?

INSPIRED BY CHANGE.

The greatest joy in my profession is being able to see the measurable change my clients achieve.  Deciding to take action on your own pain is a big decision, and one that starts a journey of change.  Being along for that journey is a privilege I treasure.

My name is Julie Stewart, I am a Licensed Massage Practitioner with the state of Washington. I am passionate about massage because it is very beneficial to the human body inside and out. Not only is it a touch with therapeutic intention, it absolutely has a positive effects on ALL systems of the body not limited to the integumentary (skin) or muscular (muscles), but it also has the ability to affect the other systems in our body; cardiovascular, digestive, skeletal, endocrine, nervous, respiratory, immunity, excretory and reproductive systems.  What does that mean to you? Well, if you have anxiety, depression, PTSD, massage can help manage that. If you have chronic pain, massage can help you function or lesson the severity of your pain. If you have stress, massage can bring you back to a rested state where your body’s ability to restore itself can be reinstated. If you have a physical injury, massage can aid in the repair process. If you have constant or reoccurring headaches and/or migraines, massage can manage, sometimes illuminate, and sometimes prevent them.We face many challenges throughout our lives, some are physical, and some are emotional, while for many of us, it is both. Allowing  or creating space for your own body to correct these traumas through massage therapy, can change your life for the better.

My goal as your massage practitioner, is to listen to you, listen to your body, and create a positive change that will improve your body and your life. We will work together as a team to accomplish that.

As you may know (or if you don’t), Insurance is getting harder and harder to work with, building up rules and stipulations, making it nearly impossible to bill insurance and get paid. I will do my best to communicate any changes as they happen.  I need your help to be proactive, and I need your ownership for appointments not paid by your insurance. Please.

What to expect over the next few months:
When you select Insurance billing under the appointments option, there will be an updated insurance billing description stating:

CANNOT BILL INSURANCE WITHOUT A REFERRAL/PRESCRIPTION plus PRE-AUTHORIZATION. It is YOUR responsibility to report your benefits PRIOR to appointment. BY BOOKING THIS APPOINTMENT, YOU AGREE TO FORFEIT ALL INSURANCE AGREEMENT BILLING RIGHTS AND TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL BILLING BALANCE’S NOT PAID BY INSURANCE PLUS $20 PROCESSING FEE. Forms above for insurance billing. *24 Hr Cancellation Policy Enforced and payment is responsibility of patient

This is a lot to read but I do want to keep you informed. We will do everything we can to keep this from impacting your experience and treatment.  Thanks for being patient.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

I love my job because I work with the best people.  Thank you all!

“I have been on a 13 year journey through pain and Julie came along at the right time, although I wish I had met her years ago. Julie is beyond intuitive she is healing for the body, mind and soul. After years of massage therapy from great providers I was referred to Julie by a pain management specialist who said Julie was a find. I have to say that is 110% true and that Julie has invoked healing on my body in places that I didn’t know needed it. I LOVE that Julie is a learner and is always looking for new techniques, new plans and new approaches to whole body wellness. My neck pain is 10% of what it used to be and I would say its gone except I keep pushing my boundaries and trying new things. I could not ask for a better massage therapist. If you have any ongoing issues or you just need a great massage this is the place to start.”

testimonial

“Julie’s knowledge of the body and how muscles move and work was amazing, she was able to more intense therapeutic massage then any other LMT that I have seen”

Greta

“I tend to treat my body like a machine, it’s a thankless job to be attached to me. Julie restores me to myself, makes me feel how my own body works and how to care for it. So much of that is without saying a word, she shows me in the way she coaxes open my shoulders that I have hunched like I’m preparing for an unexpected tackle. She shows me where I carry my stress by releasing it. When I leave I feel like I’ve been reintroduced to myself. Over time, she has been able to make measurable structural changes, and I am so thankful to have her, she listens to my body in a way that I never have. It has taught me so much. I cannot recommend her highly enough! She has a beautiful gift and we are all lucky she shares it so freely.”
