As pregnant women or mothers with infants, most of Julie’s clients practice social distancing. Our office policies are:
- The lobby has spaced seating with a locked door to the Wellness Center.
- Julie sees only one client at a time.
- To reduce time in the lobby, we process all forms and payments online.
- Clients exit through a separate exterior door.
- We schedule 10-minute appointment gaps to air out and wipe down surfaces.
- Antibacterial wipes are available outside the main entrance and in the bathroom.
- Julie wears a mask 100% of the time.
- Julie cannot guarantee any exposure. She does her best to safeguard clients according to the Massage Board’s recommendations.
The Corrective Core Method is specific for pregnancy and postpartum. This program is neurological and neuromuscular driven. It utilizes the brain-body connection; the way your nervous system controls your body. This physiology allows independent interventions of new strategies and concepts.
The week by week approach introduces new concepts one at a time. Thus your body may naturally get closer to homeostasis (self-healing) balance. A balanced body makes space for the growing baby or rebalances the organs after the baby has been born.
This program will help you discover yourself through sensing. You will make small changes to your posture, breath, and movements to balance the body and ignite your innate strength. This will carry into your daily life; postpartum fitness lasting a lifetime.
Anyone desiring the best pregnancy or postpartum possible. You don’t know what to do or where to start. You want your body back with less pain and more strength.
Mothers wanting to improve the environment and space for babies to grow also benefit. This program helps them provide the most optimal care they can give.
Clients need to be clear for exercise. They must attend scheduled prenatal or postpartum appointments with their primary caregiver.
This program is not for anyone not cleared for exercise and/or bodywork by their care provider. This program does not work for individuals not motivated to make changes.
It is not for those looking for a diagnosis or prescription of any kind, looking for medical advice, or looking for rehab of a current injury. Mothers not receiving prenatal care from a care provider are not fit for the program.
The prenatal program introduces you to new areas of your body. Starting the 8 module program between 20 to 30 weeks of gestation would be best so you don’t feel rushed. The online program presents new material weekly.
The postpartum program introduces areas of your body that need time to reconnect and make changes. Do not start the program until you are clear for exercise and bodywork. The online program presents new material weekly.
The Corrective Core Method online platform is where you will learn how to make changes in your posture, breath, and movement. These are self-paced exercises to learn before seeing Julie in person. Sessions with Julie will focus on building on your independent practice.
If you are looking for specific Prenatal or Postpartum Bodywork or are past 30 weeks, please visit the CCM Bodywork Therapy Page. There you will find two-hour full bodywork therapy sessions for your care.
No; this program is for all medically stable pregnancies no matter how many pregnancies you have had in the past.
Everyone who is self-motivated and cleared for exercise. Working with Julie in conjunction with the online program provides the complete program. She can assess your needs.
The Corrective Core Method Bodywork is very important to balance the soft tissue, fascia, and muscles. This allows the entire body to relax, release, and reset the neuromuscular system. Thus your body will better accept the changes practiced at home.
Julie Jetzer is a Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist and Certified Personal Trainer. We accept HSA for in-person packages and sessions. Inquire if your HSA covers the online Corrective Core Method exercise-only program.
We are not listed as a provider with insurance companies. We are happy to supply a statement, upon request, that you can file with your insurance for possible reimbursement. We will not respond to insurance companies requests to fill out or submit any paperwork, or breakdown of session details.
Little ones that are breastfeeding are welcome. Coming to the session solo is preferable. This allows the whole session to focus on working with you and attending to your needs. Bringing your little one may reduce the amount of work we accomplish during your session. This could extend the number of sessions you require.
Clients are often scheduled back to back and sessions need to end on time to respect the next client’s time. Consider KidTime Drop-In Center about 3 miles away as a childcare option.
The Bodywork Therapy is a very important piece of the process. Sessions with Julie are the perfect opportunity to collaborate and connect the dots from your health history to your current situation. Together you will begin a plan to reach your goal.
Bodywork is different from a massage. We use very little or no oil/lotion, you remain fully dressed, and some of the time we ask you to make small movements to assist in tension release.
From start to finish you will be an active part of your care process. During sessions you will move around. Please bring or wear yoga type or loose-fitting clothing. A sports bra will allow your belly (lower rib cage – below your waistline) to be accessible. Dresses, skirts, jeans, or short shorts are not advisable.
We schedule Corrective Core Method Therapy sessions for 60 minutes. They run 55 minutes to allow time to clean the office and not have clients overlap.
The sessions assess your home practice and introduce changes or additions to exercises. They include bodywork to continue to balance all the systems.
The more you engage with the online platform and practice the material before your in-person session, the quicker your body will evolve. You will be reviewing material with Julie in person versus learning something new. Julie does make modifications as needed based on what is being presented by your body at that time. For modifications not included in the online platform, Julie will record the new movement with your phone so you have a copy to practice from at home.
Sometimes it does take more than four sessions to get where you want to be. Everyone starts with a different history and lifestyle. To encourage continued care, Julie will issue a coupon code so you can see her at a discounted rate for as long as you wish.
That’s fine too. Some people only need one or two therapy sessions to feel the difference. You have the option to book a session as you go.
Over her years of working with prenatal and postpartum clients, Julie has seen a lot. She developed the Corrective Core Method Program based on what she has seen works best, saves the most money, and allows a payment option.
Julie has had clients travel up to 6 hours to work with her in-person. If you are over a 90-minute drive, the best would be reach out to Julie directly to schedule intensive sessions lasting 2 or three hours instead of the 60 minutes.
You have three (3) days after the purchase of any Corrective Core Method program to cancel for refund minus the credit card transaction fees. After the three (3) day period, you still have up until day 15 of booking to receive a refund minus credit card transaction fees and any and all in-person session attended or booked. On day 16 there are no refunds unless you are medically unable to continue.
Julie will review medical cancellation requests within five (5) working days after receiving the request. Requests must include a letter from the Medical Doctor on letterhead stating the reason the program is medically harmful.
If you have selected one of the payment plans you will be required to pay for all three or six month payments after the 15 day guarantee. If payment is declined an immediate blockage of the online program will be stopped until such time the payment is completed. This payment plan is binding and you agree to make all full payments once booked.
Our bodies, lives, and situations do change over time. Unused package sessions expire a year after purchase and are not transferable. Each platform includes multiple sessions to encourage consistency. This way the Method leads to changes in habits. Julie gets it, life sometimes happens so that is why she grants a year to try and get back on track.
