He complemented his studies with a Master of Science degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and has cultivated a passion for treating and managing chronic pain. Julio graduated from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego and is licensed by the California Acupuncture Board.
With over a decade of experience as a practicing massage therapist, his background in bodywork allows him to take a unique approach to treating his patients. He enjoys incorporating acupuncture and diverse massage techniques to effectively treat pain and bring his patients back into balance. Julio uses acupuncture, cupping, and various massage modalities such as trigger point, hot stone therapy, myofascial release, and Tui Na Manual Therapy to improve the quality of life of his patients. By skillfully merging multiple modalities Julio customizes each treatment to fit the unique needs of every patient. This allows him to effectively treat a variety of conditions such as acute and chronic pain, muscle tension, insomnia, anxiety, and chronic fatigue.
Julio first learned about the benefits of acupuncture firsthand, after suffering from a debilitating back injury that prevented him from functioning and enjoying his daily life. After a series of acupuncture treatments, the pain he was experiencing was eliminated and he was once again able to enjoy his life fully. This profound experience inspired him to study Traditional Chinese Medicine in the hopes of bringing the healing ability of acupuncture to his patients.
“I want to empower my patients with the powerful tools of acupuncture and massage so that they can more fully enjoy their lives.”
