My name is Julie Counsell, Licensed Massage Therapist and founder of Body Life Massage.

I grew up and attended college in South East Iowa, before beginning work in Des Moines and settling in Waukee in 2013.

I am passionate about promoting good health as naturally and holistically as possible, and have over 750 hours of formal training in massage therapy.

Outside of massage, I enjoy traveling, and recently walked the length of the West Highland Way in Scotland – where the pictures on this website were taken. I can often be found running on the Raccoon River Trail and on the weekends riding a small motorcycle through small town Iowa.

Body Life Massage is a local, boutique practice, and my focus is on building long-term relationships with clients to improve overall wellness.

I look forward to seeing you soon!
