Juliya is an Expert John F. Barnes Myofascial Release (JFB MFR) Practitioner, a graduate of the Potomac Massage Training Institute (PMTI), and a Licensed Massage Therapist in the state of Maryland. Juliya specializes in highly customized Myofascial Release treatments and therapeutic massage. She is a strong believer in the mind-body connection and holistic approaches to healing.
In 2013, after an intensive treatment course with John F. Barnes, Physical Therapist (PT), at his Treatment Center in Malvern, PA, Juliya became very interested in studying JFB MFR. As a patient, seeing rapid improvements in her own health and well-being, she felt a strong calling to become a JFB MFR therapist. Juliya wanted to practice this powerful modality to help other people get back to healthy, active lifestyles. Since then, Juliya has focused on studying JFB MFR and continues taking seminars to deepen and expand her knowledge further.
Juliya received hands-on MFR training, working side-by-side with John F. Barnes, at the Skill Enhancement program at the Treatment Center in Malvern, PA. She has been co-treating with Phil Tavolacci, PT at TAVO Total Health in Silver Spring, MD. Juliya also practiced massage and Myofascial Release at Capital Integrative Health in Bethesda and at the PMTI clinic. She has received academic and practical training in Swedish and Deep Tissue massage. Other modalities that Juliya has also been trained in include Trager, Shiatsu, Polarity, Therapeutic Touch, and Reiki.
Juliya has an extensive background in both art and architecture. She loves traveling and spending time outdoors. One of her favorite things to do is Plein Air painting. Juliya believes that JFB MFR is another form of Art that allows her to combine her experiences and deepen her understanding and proficiency in all areas of life.
Juliya has been practicing the John F. Barnes’ Approach to Myofascial Release since 2014. She sees clients at TAVO Total Health on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
