Julie Merkl, PT
Julie is a gifted manual therapist with over 12 years combined experience in acute, sub-acute, outpatient, and home care settings. She earned her BA in Psychology at Emory University in 1993, and her Masters in Physical Therapy from the University of Delaware in 1997.
Julie has always recognized the importance of continuing her education through attendance at a variety of seminars and courses. It was during her first seminar on the John Barnes approach to Myofascial Release that a "quantum shift" occurred in her understanding of pain, dysfunction and healing. Since then, Julie has passionately pursued the expansion of her skills and knowledge of Myofascial Release through advanced seminars and treatments. She started Quantum Therapy, PC in 2006 in order to provide physical therapy services that focus on Myofascial Release in a private, unhurried setting.
