I wasn’t even in my 2nd year of massage school yet and my hands were done before I started.  18 years ago, a good client of mine who used to do massage said “Julie you need to use your elbows or you just won’t last.”   I started only using my elbows and I quickly learned the hard way what to do and what not to do if you'd like to stay in the industry long term and be happy.

I’ve been happily massaging using with my elbows for almost 18 years now and I’ve never had any injuries from working.  Seeing so many people I went to school with do too many clients too fast and destroy themselves early on in their careers, I knew I needed to pace myself.  18 years and counting is impressive in this field considering this industry is about a 2-5 year career span depending how many clients you see.  Unless I’m applying lotion, doing specific neck, intraoral TMJ or organ manipulation, I try and use my elbows for everything.  Many people say "wow your hands are so strong"...and I say that’s my elbow not my hand.     

If you’re interested in working smarter not harder and you’d like to up your game and last longer in this field, consider my free 5 day challenge RMT’s Save Your Hands!  I would love to help you have a long, happy career.

Julie Kaukinen


Julie helps stressed out massage therapists risking burnout, injury and exhaustion who struggle with chronic pain and health issues, so she offers affordable live and online sessions and classes that teach therapists how to work smarter not harder, prevent burnout, manage stress in a totally different way and teaches them how to create a business beyond what they thought was possible.     


Julie's target is to help massage therapists feel better, have less stress, not be so hard on themselves, have a greater level of health and more longevity and success in their careers.   

Healing is an art, and Julie is able to invite and create massive change in people’s bodies, realities and their points of views about their bodies, which in turn opens up and changes their whole world.  Julie has 18 years experience in advanced massage, corporate massage, equine massage, teaching advanced massage techniques, practicing osteopathy, myofascial, craniosacral, visceral manipulation, applied kinesiology, certified herbal consulting, recommending and designing herb and supplement programs for clients, western herbalism, blood analysis, contact reflex analysis, Neurolinguistic programming, Chinese Herbal Medicine and lastly her favourite, Access Consciousness Bars, Body Process, and Energetic Facelift.     

Julie graduated in 2006 from Foothills College of Massage Therapy in Calgary, Alberta. Since graduating, she has been in high demand as a therapist and has continued to grow, expand and refine her craft with enthusiasm and continues to add even more magic to her tool belt.  She has a very devoted, loyal and grateful following of clientele who continue to be fascinated by her level of intuition and body awareness with what is required for the body when it comes to bodywork, burnout prevention, stress management, herbs and supplement programs, empowerment and strengthening mental health.


Before Covid Julie was studying Equine chiropractics, acupuncture and osteopathy with Shantel Perreal of the Canadian Equine Therapy Institute in Edmonton, Alberta.  After lockdown she knew that something in her business had to change so she started doing her own online herbal consultations over zoom which opened up a whole new universe and has changed the trajectory of her business forever.  Since Covid, Julie has created a global herbal consulting business over zoom and is so grateful and is loving the diversity in her business. 


Julie is a keynote speaker in the fields of massage therapy, bodywork, anatomy, consciousness, stress, biomechanics, ergonomics, health and wellness.  


She has a successful private practice in SW Calgary and is the founder of Corporate Alignment Inc. a company who is a pioneer in the industry specializing in Corporate Wellness Programs using a very effective burnout prevention and stress management technique called Access Bars.     


Julie has a YouTube channel called Massage à la Carte, and she recently created Neckdemic an online course about how to release your partner’s neck pain.  She also facilitates her own series of Massage Therapy education courses for lay people as well as massage therapists looking to expand what they know is possible with the body.

By acknowledging physical, biochemical, mental & energetic levels, Julie has a deep understanding of anatomy, how all systems communicate individually and as a whole.  Her in person sessions are a combination of massage, intuitive bodywork, osteopathic techniques, and body unwinding.  Her herbal sessions are very unique where Julie assesses all your organs and glands and finds out what your body has been asking for and where the holes are in your supplement program.  With energy work Access Consciousness Bars and Body Process sessions, the worst case scenario you will feel like you've had a great massage and the best case scenario your whole entire life will change.  


Julie’s enthusiasm for bodywork is inspired by acknowledging the root causes of dysfunction, helping to reverse the problem and empowering you to know how and why it happened so you can change it.
