The ordinary doctor was interested mostly in the study of disease. The nature curist is interested more in study of health. His real interest begins where that of the ordinary doctor ends. Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

About Julie:

Julie has studied human and animal sciences for over thirty years and has taken numerous courses and education that continues to build her practice and the educational programs that she offers.  As a pioneer in the field of natural animal science practice and education she has seen the evolution of laws, professional practices, and curriculum.  In 2002, when the animal massage laws changed for Washington state, she was called upon to teach animal massage at the Washington Massage Therapists Association’s annual conference.  Julie’s goal is to provide educational standards and research projects above, and visionary to, the future qualifications of professionals.
