Hellerwork and Structural Medicine
At Body Balance, we use a customized and collaborative approach to evaluating and treating each individual’s unique health issues. Using the Hellerwork and Structural Medicine method, we bridge well-established and proven tools in mainstream medicine with the latest scientific developments in alternative treatment therapies.
This approach is helpful for those suffering from chronic, joint and visceral pain as well as severe muscular stiffness (including fibromyalgia), a feeling of overall misalignment and tightness in the body, migraines, TMJ and post surgery/post birthing process. Our clients optimize how they use their bodies by making the connection between movement, body alignment and personal awareness. This results in natural free movements, balancing the body’s structure and improving posture and fluidity. Click here to look at the Hellerwork and Structural Medicine FAQs.
Hellerwork Structural Integration “taps” into four elements: structure, function, emotion and energy. The body is realigned using proven connective tissue manipulation techniques. This connective tissue is known as fascia.
- Increased energy, vitality, grace and fitness
- Improved posture and body shape: a body aligned with gravity
- Greater flexibility and ease of movement
- Improved athletic performance
- Reduced sports related injuries
- Expanded sense of daily, moment-to-moment well-being
- Lessened rigidity so less wear and tear
- Reduced pain caused by imbalance and prior traumas

After having just 3 sessions with Julie, I found that it was easier for me to get into postures at my yoga class. I had no pain during the stretches, which is a change from how I felt before seeing her. After the class my instructor came to me and said that she was very impressed with how nice my form was during the class! This past Monday she said that I looked like a different person doing yoga now. I also have a new awareness of my posture when I stand or sit. The changes are visible and have been making a big difference in my everyday life. Thank you.

Julie is both knowledgeable and professional. Working with her has been very educational and I have learned more about my body, balance, posture and breathing.

My experience working with Julie has been very enlightening. Learning how my body works in conjunction with external surroundings has been the best part of the sessions. I have also learned a lot about my own body and how it works together as a whole. Looking at current photos compared to photos from the beginning of my Hellerwork series has reinforced visually the changes that I feel in my body.

I admit that I was skeptical at first as to how much of a change I would feel in my body, but I have experienced changes in my posture as well as an overall positive feeling of wellness in my body. I look forward to seeing the final results after I finish my Hellerwork series with Julie.

Julie has given me advanced work that has significantly helped me with a persistent alignment problem that was beginning to give me pain in my knees. I am so excited to begin to see her on a regular basis!
