UnDERSTANDING MYOFASCIAL RELEASE
MY NAME IS Julie Varga
I am a licensed massage therapist, graduate of The Massage School in Boston, MA. I specialize in the John Barnes Method of Myofascial Release and achieved expert level.
I was born in The Netherlands and lived in England, Spain, Portugal, Brazil and Paraguay (where I graduated high school). I came to live in the United States in 1998. I speak Spanish and Portuguese fluently.
My first exposure to manual 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. Myofascial release takes manual therapy to a whole new level of healing. I have benefited greatly from myofascial release and also seen amazing results in chronic pain relief for others.
I chose to be a soldier on active duty in the Army in 2001. After 14 years of active service, I am in the Army Reserves. I have been on multiple deployments and keeping up and staying fit was 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 physical injuries and outlived a struggle with PTSD. Myofascial 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 especially to helping those of you in high stress jobs because I am one of you.
