About Judy Johnston
I am a Wisconsin State Licensed and Nationally Certified Massage Therapist, Registered Occupational Therapist, and in May, 2016 I became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist. I offer skilled manual therapies in the forms of therapeutic medical and relaxation massage therapy and myofascial release therapy and manual lymph drainage. I have been a massage therapist since 2004 and have extensive experience having performed well over 5000+ treatments. I’ve worked in Florida in a chiropractic clinic for 1.5 years before moving back to Wisconsin in 2006. I became an independent contractor working as a licensed massage therapist for Watertown Regional Medical Center in Watertown, Wisconsin for 7 years. I used manual therapy to treat conditions ranging from typical muscle tension and soreness to persons recovering from stroke, removal of post surgical scar tissue, increasing mobility of post surgical rotator cuff, elbow, cervical and knee surgeries, low back, neck and shoulder pain conditions. I have also treated those presenting with Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, arthritis, headaches, spinal stenosis and more. Being a certified prenatal therapist I've also worked with prenatal clients to help relieve the stress and soreness that so often accompanies pregnancy.
In May, 2015, I received a Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy and became a Wisconsin State Certified and Registered Occupational Therapist. I did my fieldwork at Fort HealthCare Therapy and Sports Center in Whitewater, WI and at the Wisconsin Center for Myofacial Release in Kenosha, WI and completed my thesis on the effectiveness of Myofacial Release for Fibromyalgia. In incorporating my knowledge and skill set as an occupational therapist into my massage therapy and bodywork, I hope to greatly enhance my work as a skilled massage therapist. With a deeper comprehension of the human body and its potential, it is my hope to be able to offer a greater holistic approach to treatments when working together with clients in reaching their personal goals for therapy so they can get back to doing what they need or love to do.
