About Back in Sync
Back in Sync was founded in 2012 by Julie Cline and Barb Felton for the purpose and intention of bringing Theraflex Reflex Therapy to eastern Indiana and Western Ohio regions.
As Barb's massage therapist, Julie was well aware of the condition of Barb's back, the result of a college sports injury, and the level of chronic pain she experienced. She knew that 30-45 minutes of deep tissue massage and myofascial release on Barb's back yielded only temporary relief. When Julie's colleague (thank you Kurt) told her about Theraflex, she suggested that Barb give it a try. Both were surprised by the immediate difference it made in alleviating the daily pain and stiffness to which Barb was accustomed.
After a series of six treatments with lasting results, Barb and Julie decided that many others could and should have the chance to benefit from the effective, non-invasive therapy. At the time, there were only two other Theraflex practitioners in the US, in addition to many practitioners in Great Britain where the therapy was developed.
Barb provided the financial backing after Julie studied the Theraflex theory and technique and concluded that the simple technique made perfect sense for restoring health and flexibility for many back conditions; and the highly engineered "bionic hand" was a perfect way to deliver the technique without fatiguing the practitioner. The technology was purchased from the US distributor, Susan Todd, who provided training and continues to provide ongoing support.
While Barb remains a Theraflex ambassador and business partner, she works with the Preble County Council on Aging as the Manager of Homemaker Services.
Julie is the hands on portion of Back in Sync with 20 years of experience as a massage therapist and bodyworker. She graduated from the Alexandria School of Scientific Therapeutics in 1996, with diplomas in Swedish Massage and Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy, and continues to learn through seminars, self study, and observation. She holds the Indiana Massage Therapy Certification and Ohio Massage Therapy License.
