Julie Burgevin

Owner of Gainesville Massage Therapy

Julie began GMT independently in 2001, and has steadily grown to incorporate other talented massage therapists. She aspires to help therapists, by providing a professional environment. Maintaining the office and establishment licensing, the online presence, and keeping up to date with all business aspects, helps therapists focus on massage while building their own clientele.
Julie has received many massages over the years, and can personally advocate for each person who has chosen to work with her within GMT. The quality that each therapist brings to a session is superb!

Becky - Massage Therapy

Becky is a graduate of the Arizona School of Massage (Fall 2002). She worked for 10 years within a physical therapist’s office as a PT tech, massaging and managing. She moved to Alachua county to help run her small family farm. Since arriving, she’s worked as a rehab tech/registered chiropractic assistant at a chiropractor’s office. Becky is returning to GMT after a hiatus during the pandemic. We welcome her back! 

Her work can be deep, specific and very therapeutic using her physical therapy assistant knowledge. However, she adapts her touch to the client and the tissue beneath, so she may slow down, soften her touch and tune in with deep insight and intuition – conveying confidence and intelligence. 

Outside of work, Becky is an avid artist and crafting person extraordinaire.  Her artwork will soon be displayed in the office.  Reading fantasy series and watching B movies are some of her past times.  She also gardens and puts up many of her homegrown veggies. And that is not all, she loves her pets – cats, dogs and birds! There is not a dull moment in her days, and she brings her enthusiasm to life and living to each of her massage sessions. 

Kimberly - Massage Therapy & Reiki Healing

Kimberly is a graduate of the Florida School of Massage (Fall 1994) & University of Florida (1993).  Additionally, she is a licensed physical therapist assistant having worked in outpatient physical therapy clinics over the past 6 years. 

Her continued studies include certification as a yoga instructor, Reiki Master, & Myofascial Release (MFR Level I).  She combines all her education into her therapeutic massages.  A therapist for 27 years, she is proficient in helping people recover from chronic pain and injuries. She helps people learn to find balance through their body’s innate nature to heal when the nervous system is allowed to come to a state of deep relaxation.

Kimberly’s work is highly intuitive. Her ability to create a warm, safe and calm environment for healing to occur is par excellence. One may address specific pain or injury, or receive a calm, restorative session, or both within the same session. 

Keely - Massage Therapy

He began pursuing bodywork in 2011 as a result of his personal experiences with disability, surgery, and chronic pain. He specializes in myofascial, neuromuscular, deep tissue, and structural modalities. Keely brings an ease and empathy into his sessions as he strives to offer a truly client-oriented, trauma-informed therapeutic experience.

In addition to being an LMT, Keely is an artist, and he has combined his medical and fine arts background in order to run Anatomy for Artists workshops online and at Sante Fe Community College. He has also run a community workshop series on self-massage techniques at Gainesville’s Civic Media Center.
