Julie Kells BScKIN., R.M.T.
Julie completed her Bachelor of Science Honours Kinesiology degree
in 1996 from the University of Waterloo in Ontario. Having traveled
extensively for a year, Julie then returned to Ontario to further
her education. It was in 1999 when Julie earned her diploma as a
Registered Massage Therapist from D’Arcy Lane Institute of
Massage Therapy in London, Ontario.
Upon completion, Julie spent time at clinics practicing both Kinesiology
and gaining valuable experience as a massage therapist. Julie’s
fondness for the east coast brought her to Halifax in 2000 where
she has continued to build experiences as a massage therapist. Julie
had a desire to take massage therapy in a new direction and quickly
set about building her own clinic focusing on a more integrated
approach to healing. In 2005 Julie expanded her clinic and named it Be. Massage Therapy.
In May 2012, Julie graduated with her diploma in Acupuncture from the College of Acupuncture and Therapeutics in Kitchener, Ontario. She is a registered Acupuncturist and is an active member of the Maritime Association of Registered Acupuncturists. Julie uses acupuncture and cupping therapy, in many of her treatments. She helps treat conditions such as anxiety, depression, reproductive and menstrual issues, musculoskeletal disorders, acute and chronic pain, gastrointestinal and respiratory disorders.
Julie’s areas of interest are in deep tissue therapy, trigger
point therapy, sports therapy, TMJ dysfunction, and working with
rehabilitating post stroke patients. Julie combines massage therapy, myofascial techniques, acupuncture, cupping, and stretching and strengthening exercises to assist in the body’s natural healing process.
Julie has repeatedly been voted the 'Best Massage Therapist' in The Coast's Best
