Julie Benavides, LMT, CMLDT
Julie provides skilled, nurturing touch to support you in feeling your best. She draws from a variety of modalities to curate the most therapeutic session for each client. As part of your wellness team, she ensures that you feel safe, comfortable and heard.
In addition to relaxation and orthopedic massage, Julie specializes in prenatal massage. Being trained in safe techniques for pregnant women allows her to provide relief from neck, shoulder, rib, back and hip pain that is common for expecting moms. She also uses Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) techniques to alleviate foot and leg swelling in pregnancy and utilizes her doula training to teach techniques that release the ligaments and tissues of the pelvis for an easier labor.
MLD can be used with anyone who is experiencing swelling or lymphatic stagnation and provides welcomed pain relief to those with acute conditions who are not candidates for standard massage techniques.

I was recommended to Sage Acupuncture by my team at Texas Fertility Center... they not only helped increase my fertility, but worked on other related issues like my digestion and anxiety as well as periodic headaches and allergy symptoms. - Meg H.
Sage Acupuncture is simply wonderful! I've been a client for over two years, before, during and after pregnancy. - Shannon H.
These ladies are great-- very knowledgable, kind and gentle. I started a year ago to help with fertility, my progesterone was extremely low. Within a few months it was within normal range, and I was pregnant. I then continued all throughout my pregnancy for maintenance and comfort.
