The Treatment of Pain™
Onsen Muscle Therapy™
JULIE BACON LMP, COTT, COTTE, COTTI
Certified Onsen Techniques Therapist Instructor™
Julie is a Seattle native, licensed and practicing in Seattle since 1975. She graduated from the Lindsey Hopkins School of Massage, Miami, FL in 1975, and from the Brian Utting School of Massage, Seattle, in 1990. She has worked at the downtown Seattle Athletic Club since 1982. In 1987 Julie discovered her professional niche: Sports Massage and Injury Treatment. She is passionate about helping anyone in pain, working with athletes and teaching Onsen Techniques® classes.
The Onsen Techniques® is a treatment protocol developed by Rich Phaigh, LMT at Nike’s track West in Eugene, OR for world class athletes and pain treatment. With over 1500 hours of continuing education, Julie’s major focus has been learning from Rich Phaigh. In 2001 she became a Certified Onsen Techniques Therapist™ - Instructor™ - Examiner™. She believes it is the most effective method for finding the source of pain and alleviating it.
Julie also developed a full body massage technique called Circulatory Massage. This is an excellent recovery or maintenance massage. She taught a class in this technique at Brian Utting School of Massage from 1991 until its closure in 2008, and now teaches it through the Therapeutic Training Center in Seattle.
Getting to know her clients well is one of the things Julie enjoys most. Being able to problem solve and relieve pain is extremely gratifying, as well as seeing the transformation that takes place in a client’s physical and mental stress levels during a one hour massage. Julie believes she occupies a unique niche: if you have muscle injury, discomfort or restriction, see her first: usually she can treat you successfully. If not, she’ll probably have a good idea about who you might consult next.
