Holistic massage and bodywork in Nashville, TN


Julia Rizzo is based in Nashville, TN. She has a degree in Holistic Health (HHP) from the International Professional School of Massage and Bodywork (IPSB), and has been a massage therapist and body worker since 1998.

In her sessions, Julia draws from her innate empathic and intuitive gifts and adapts to each of her clients. She explains, “some days a client may want specific pain relief, another they might need to talk through a difficult situation, and on other days they need the space to be still and receive. I help create awareness for my clients so they can find an effortless way of being - from breathing more deeply to achieving pain-free peace within their bodies.”    

Since 2012, she has focused her desire to empower others towards extensive research into herbalism and aromatherapy. When she is not doing bodywork, she is creating tinctures, salves, and oil blends for her company Golden Apothecary, to target common and tailored ailments. “I support my clients’ healing through the use of essential oils, herbs, and in ideas of what could help them beyond our bodywork sessions." You can find what she offers at her shop.


Julia has undergone extensive education, internships, and research into many modalities of the healing arts including:
Craniosacral Therapy
Myofascial Release
Relational Somatics
Gwa Sha
Structural Integration
(Rolf Method, Rolfing) 10 Series
Rock Tape/Kinesiology Taping
Neuro Kinetic Therapy (NKT) Level 1
Passive Joint Movement / Trager
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)

I hold the space for people to have their pain transformed, to find the root cause of the body’s imbalance and dysfunction, helping to correct movement patterns and let the body move in an effortless way.
