I have been receiving bodywork from Julia Smith, CMT, for about 1 year. She uses a variety of bodywork modalities and stretches to address my many problems. I have back, leg, arm and hand issues and she is able to help me. She listens to what I tell her is bothering me, assess my needs and works with me to address the pain and problems. She incorporates education of the client into her sessions and if need be, she will research a particular issue for you and get back to you with her findings. It is not easy to find a good massage therapist who is educated in her profession, can assess your problems, listens to what you are saying and actually truly cares about the outcome. I highly recommend Julia Smith as a massage therapist. A. Rozbicki/Santa Clara
It?s a pleasure to write a review of Julia Smith's massage. She is one of the best therapists I have ever known. I have chronic shoulder and neck pain. She has helped me a lot with it. She is truly exceptional. I will highly recommend!!!! A. Chatteree/Bay Area
Julia Smith is simply terrific.
Just before the Holidays, and at the end of a long week, I decided to pamper myself - and I'm glad I did it.
Julia gently (but with the right amount of pressure) effectively worked out the knots in my shoulders - and she magically reduced the chronic lower back pain that years of abuse had caused and a long week had magnified.
And I was pleasantly surprised by her extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology. She put me through a series of stretches that reduced the aggravation of both a pulled hamstring and a strained Achilles tendon.
Julia not only was a great ending for a long week - she gave me a high energy start to a wonderful weekend. chris b./Santa Clara, CA
I have had several massages from Julia Smith. She is a great masseuse. Recently, I was having a lot of pain from a car accident. Julia is gentle and knowledgeable, and knew where to work to relieve the pain and give me a lot of relief. The Decathlon Club massage rooms are peaceful and clean. It's a pleasure to be handed a spa towel and a robe, to take a nice hot spa tub, and then have Julia work on those tension and injury areas. Honest I./San Jose, CA
I got a massage from Julia Smith of Decathlon Club after I was sore from playing tennis. She used the right pressure and on the right muscle groups. I left the session feeling much better and the soreness was gone. I would recommend Julia to anyone needing a sports massage. Aniruddha T./Santa Clara, CA
