The John F. Barnes, PT method of Myofascial Release addresses chronic pain, poor to bad postural habits and lack of mobility and flexibility geared toward permanent pain relief. This is a results oriented therapy designed to address fascial restrictions within the fascial system.
“Start by doing what is necessary; Then do what is possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”

My name is Julie Varga.
I am a licensed massage therapist and graduate of The Massage School in Boston, MA. I specialize in the John F. Barnes method of Myofascial Release at the expert level.
I was born in The Netherlands and lived in England, Spain, Portugal, Brazil and Paraguay. I came to live in the United States in 1998. I speak Spanish and Portuguese fluently.
My first exposure to massage therapy was when I was 11 years old. A group of nuns in Paraguay helped people by massaging them for a variety of ailments, and for some, it was the only pain relief they ever received. Since then I have had many massages and benefited greatly from them. This motivates me to share massage therapy with others, specifically Myofascial Release.
I enlisted as soldier on active duty in the US Army in 2001. Now, after 14 years of active service, I am in the US Army Reserves. I have been on multiple deployments so keeping up and staying fit is essential to survival. I am also a paratrooper and worked in special operations units, infantry units and with special forces. I know what body aches are more than most. I have my share of injuries and outlived a struggle with PTSD. Myofascial release has helped me not only to cope but to live an active lifestyle.
My sister was a police officer on a SWAT team, one of my brothers worked for many years as a government contractor in dangerous locations around the world, and my youngest brother is a 911 dispatcher. I am committed to helping those of you in high stress jobs because I am one of you.
