Our therapists will work to provide you a relaxing, therapeutic experience to ease your pain, using the techniques suited to your needs and with those that they are most experienced in.

Prenatal & Postpartum

Prenatal or pregnancy massage is for women carrying and experiencing a changing body, aches, and tiredness. We aim to keep the body relaxed and prepared for the miracle of birth. We alleviate pain and muscle fatigue where you need it most. This session is tailored to address the changes that occur in a woman’s body during pregnancy and provide an overall sense of balance and calm to the expectant mother. (Check with your doctor to see if there are any contraindications specific to you.)
Postpartum can be any time in the first year after having given birth. The massage addresses aches, pains, and discomforts as the result of labor and new ways a mother has adapted to parenting.


Reiki is a Japanese healing method that addresses pain, anxiety, & stress-related discomfort in the body with a gentle, yet powerful hands-on technique. Kimberly assists in the movement & balancing of life-force energy, aiding in deep relaxation & well-being. This therapy is holistic; it complements traditional medicine & is used in hospitals to help alleviate pain after surgery, following cancer treatments, & pre and post labor. Clients remained clothed.

Positional Release and Self-Correction Therapy

Julie has been studying in Ortho-Bionomy® for the past 24 years, having yet to hand in all her paperwork to become certified. OB is healing modality that works through the body’s innate ability for self-correction.   

It is a gentle, quick & effective modality of massage and bodywork, that relieves chronic & acute pain, while helping to increase mobility & release muscle & fascial tension that hold us in postural patterns. The work is grounding & centering & brings ease to both body & mind. A client need not experience more pain to get out of pain. 

Julie believes whole-heartedly in this work that she has helped facilitate classes for Mary Santello, a teacher and professional in the field, supporting her and those that work within Gainesville Massage Therapy’s premises.


Aromatherapy massage uses natural essential oils diluted  in whole and natural carrier oils, such as almond or jojoba oils. One benefits from direct contact and with inhalation of the essential oils.

Choose “add-on” for a small addition of essential oil

Choose “Aroma- Hot Stone for addition of natural essential oil blend.

Hot Stone Massage

Round, smooth stones are heated to comforting warmth, oiled and used in the palm of the hands to massage the body. Heat penetrates deeply, prompting profound relaxation, increased circulation to affected areas, and relief of long-standing muscular tension, stress and fatigue.

Choose “add-on” for fewer hot stones through out your treatment.

Choose “Aroma- Hot Stone for addition of natural essential oil blend.

Cupping – Myofascial Decompression

Cupping is a traditional therapy that has been practiced worldwide. It is safe and effective at helping release adhesions, drain excess fluid, increase blood flow to skin and muscles, and much more. One may choose to schedule this treatment to help with conditions related to diabetes, cellulite, pain, anxiety, asthma, and more.
Facial Cupping is a form of cupping that uses small cups to create a gentle vacuum effect, lifting the facial tissue. This technique helps to increase circulation, and bring nutrients to the skin, creating a rejuvenating, healthy glow to the one’s face. Treatments can reduce tension in skin and muscles, loosen scar tissue, reduce wrinkles, and decrease symptoms of TMJ disorders. Sinus infections and inflammation can be relieved by the loosening and draining effects of facial cupping.

Hypnotherapy with Julie (coming soon)

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind, also called “trance”.  Trance is something we all go in and out of throughout any given day. It is like the feeling of driving a car, and being on “auto-pilot”, then realizing you are at your destination, but not recalling the trip in full.  As the therapist I will assist you into this natural state and you will be able to access deeper and deeper states of relaxation. You, the client, are awake in a Alpha brain wave state, in control, yet very relaxed. Here is where your subconscious is willing to take your suggestions for change. This is an exercise for your mind to help integrate new beliefs you desire. Your subconscious mind is limitless, expansive, intuitive, & can know solutions to problems.  

Let’s make some changes and solve some problems!

Contact Julie to discuss scheduling in January.


Tandem "Couples" Massage

We welcome groups of two only (since 2020). Friends, family, partners – experience the benefits of massage. Our quaint office is very comfortable and all our therapists have many years of experience. We can ensure your time is truly enjoyable, high quality, and well spent. Consider booking for special occasions, such as an anniversary, a mother-daughters’ day, or BFFS!
We are sorry but we do not do massages with two clients in one room, as one might think of a “couples” massage. Don’t let this disappoint, because time spent receiving a massage is best used for quiet and deep relaxation.

In-Home Massage

A massage provided in the client’s home at his or her convenience. This service must be scheduled by talking to Julie, the owner, in advance. We are professional licensed and insured massage therapists and strictly do therapeutic massage. In the interest of protecting ourselves from solicited illegal and inappropriate requests, we reserve the right to refuse service to those clients who disrespect our professionalism, and attempt to step over personal boundaries.

Corporate & Event Chair Massage

Gainesville Massage Therapy knows you are busy and may not have time to travel to our office for massage therapy. With corporate and event massage, clients receive a 10- to 30-minute massage session in a specially designed chair or table at a business setting. Treat your employees to the benefits of massage.
At times employees organize among themselves to bring massage on site. These prices are reflected in “Employee Pricing” and are a perfect means to accommodate a small office or division of a larger company.
Take this first step to a great workplace environment!

On-Site Chair Massage

A massage performed at the client’s location of choice on a specially designed chair or table. This is an ideal massage for small parties or special occasions. Think of all the reasons and occasions, such as birthdays, retirement parties, baby showers, wedding showers, and so many more. Carpe diem!
