My name is Julia Swartz. I have been in the healthcare field for 15+ years as a CNA working in nursing homes, group homes and hospice settings. Through the years, I became discouraged by the common approaches to pain management which mostly involved pain medications and other drugs. I felt there was a better, more holistic way to help. I decided to go back to school.
I attended Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN, graduating with a certificate in Massage Therapy. During my education, I was trained in various modalities or techniques. I have also taken some continuing education to expand my knowledge of the many different types of massage.
