"Discovering Julie one year ago at the Wellness Fair in Nashua has been a blessing to me. As a very energetic, in shape 65 year old, I was stunned to have been diagnosed with spinal stenosis and hip bursitis. Through Julie's half hour weekly therapeutic massages, I have improved tremendously to the point where now I am on a weekly maintenance plan. Julie's infectious smile and bubbly personality is such a welcoming sight every week, not to mention how knowledgeable she is at her craft. I am impressed by the fact that she continually takes classes and keeps abreast at the latest methodologies in her field. I highly recommend Julie for any of your therapeutic needs."-

"I feel fortunate to have been referred to Julie by one of my good friends. I have been seeing Julie for over a year and have made amazing and steady progress in dealing with limitations due to lower back problems and leg muscle spasms. Julie’s knowledge of the anatomy of the body has been instrumental in her understanding of what needed to be done to help me heal. In addition, her college degree in Athletic Training has enabled her to provide me with exercises and stretches that I could perform at home . When I first started seeing Julie I needed to visit her every 2 to 3 days in order to maintain the benefits I’d gain from each massage and to remain pain free. I am now seeing her every 10 -12 days and my goal of “needing” a visit every two weeks has almost been achieved. In summation, Julie is a gem and I feel fortunate to be in her care."

"I have known Julie since college and I could not be more proud of all she has accomplished since then. I went to see Julie last week for my first massage in a long time. She was very professional and made sure to address all of my problem areas before the massage took place. I instantly felt at ease in Julie's care and I became more relaxed than I have ever been once the massage started. I thoroughly enjoyed my massage and I can't wait to go back for another one sometime soon. Julie even wrote me a nice thank you note for coming and I thought that was a very nice touch. If you are looking for a relaxing massage where you will want to keep coming back for more, look no further than Julie Morrissey."

Wonderful! I started seeing Julie at Morrissey Hands-On Massage after a very extensive 3 level ACDF neck surgery and am amazed at how much she has helped me. My neck was essentially restructured and reshaped. After eleven months post-surgery I was healing slowly and was finally well enough to start massage therapy. At this time I was still experiencing a tremendous amount of pain from tightness, stiffness, shooting pain, numbness and tingling ranging from all areas of my upper back into my neck and head. Despite meticulously following my PT program (which was helping greatly) I was still not getting enough relief to have any kind of normal life i.e couldn't turn my head over my shoulder while driving. At this time to my dismay, a follow-up with my surgeon indicated that it was very likely I might need a second surgery. Julie was recommended to me and I made an appointment immediately. She was able to see me quickly and after my first visit I saw amazing results. I was able to move my head more freely with less pain and a greater range of motion just leaving her parking lot! I kept a recurring weekly appointment (in conjunction with acupuncture) which gave me such wonderful results that improvement was happening in leaps and bounds. With massage I could see an improved difference weekly at this point, as opposed to just every few months without massage. I started to feel looser with better range of motion, my PT exercises were easier which allowed me to get stronger and the constant stabbing pain was finally subsiding. She had discovered knots and areas to be worked on that other massage therapists had only superficially touched on or hadn't even discovered at all. At this point, I am happy to say that I don't think I will be needing a second surgery due to Julie's help and expertise. I highly recommend her to anyone with "mysterious pain/phantom pain" that Dr's can not figure out the root cause of. I would also recommend her to anyone looking to explore alternative options to surgery or anyone just looking to feel better and get rid of their aches and pains. -
