Massage Therapist

Julie Haufe is a 2006 graduate of Massage Therapy at Capri College, Dubuque, Iowa and also holds a B.A. in communications and a minor in journalism from the University of Northern Iowa. She has extensive continuing educations in Neural Reset Therapy®, Integrated Neuromuscular Re-Education, Myokinesthetic System, Myofascial Release, Orthopedic Massage for complicated Knee and Shoulder Conditions, Reiki, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Medical Massage for Cranial Pain, TMJ & Headaches, A non-surgical Approach to Carpal Tunnel, Tai Chi Massage, and Hot and Cold Stone Therapies.

My passion is helping others find relief from debilitating stress and pain through various massage techniques that work.


I listen to my client concerns, identify their physical activities, assess the body and the mechanics and then provide an environment that ultimately bring the body back into homeostasis. I’ve provided long-term relief for chronic conditions, such as Plantar Fasciitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and localized areas such as the back, neck, leg and shoulder pain, to name a few.


I have worked in various healthcare environments and upscale spa settings which has positively impacted the professional care I offer to my clients.



Christine Shimkus has been a licensed massage therapist since 2005. Trained in Florida, Christine attended the Heritage Institute of Jacksonville, where she focused on neuromuscular therapy and participated in the sports massage honors program, working with athletes at Jacksonville University. She continued her clinical focus through earning her Basic Neuromuscular Therapy Certification, her Pregnancy and Post-partum Bodywork Certification, and completing continuing education in Orthopedic Massage, Scar Tissue Release, and Precision Neuromuscular Therapy.  She is currently working toward her certification in Precision Neuromuscular Therapy.  

I am fascinated by how the human body functions and compensates for dysfunction. Every client I have the privilege of working with is unique. I customize each treatment session to meet the immediate needs of the client at that point in their healing journey. Whether you have come for an isolated issue or for a holistic massage, I open each session with an evaluation of what has brought you to me, be it a stress relief to ‘it hurts when I do this’. 

After an evaluation for neuromuscular therapy, I work to isolate the problem and eliminate the cause of pain. My holistic treatments include a scan of the body as I work to identify areas in need of preventative care. 


"Julie provides the best massage I have ever experienced. I recommend her even to people out of town. They agree that her skill and technique justifies the travel. She also has extensive knowledge of essential oils.
