Julio Diaz-Torres, LMT

Julio Diaz-Torres has been studying the body and its functionality for more than 50 years. His professional, hands-on work as a Massage Therapist and Bodyworker spans more than three decades .

His bodywork practice is influenced by his training, practice, and teaching in the body/mind disciplines of the martial arts, yoga, Pilates, Body-Mind Centering (an embodied approach to movement and body consciousness), and Eastern philosophy of thought and medicine.

Julio specializes in combining Western and Eastern modalities of myofascial release and Shiatsu through embodied touch to affect the physical as well as the energetic aspects of the body system. Through this approach, the autonomic nervous system is contacted and deep patterns of tension and unease are released and the body system comes into homeostasis.

He offers the following modalities; deep tissue/myofascial release, table Shiatsu, and Swedish massage.

Julio graduated from the Chicago School of Massage Therapy in 1991 and is a certified Yoga teacher in Embodied Anatomy and Yoga through the School for Body-Mind Centering, an AMTA member and licensed massage therapist in the state of Illinois.
