Dr. Julie Rosenblatt
Dr. Julie Rosenblatt loves what she does. Julie has a true gift as a healer and has been called by patients "a back whisperer." She has a keen intuitive sense of exactly what your body needs and is trying to tell you. Over her decades of practice, she has developed her own unique style of practice. She enjoys working with patients of all ages, from newborns to seniors.
Julie has been practicing on Bainbridge Island since 1994 and prior to that in Seattle. She was also a massage therapist in California and brings that work into her practice. Julie has studied a variety of techniques to ensure she can treat each patient just as they need. Those techniques include: Network Spinal Analysis, BGI, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Pediatric Chiropractic, Acupressure Therapy, Touch for Health and Low Level Laser Therapy.
Julie graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in 1989 and has been in practice ever since. She is married to David Kotz and they have two incredible daughters. When not at work she can be found with her family, in her garden, dancing, doing yoga or hanging out with her goats.

Dr. Kay McGowan
Kay grew in northern NJ and received her undergraduate degree from LeMoyne College in Syracuse, NY. Following college, she relocated to Breckenridge, CO where she worked in the real estate industry. While training to become a yoga teacher and then subsequently teaching yoga, Kay became captivated with the anatomy and mechanics of the spine and how the spine can impact a person’s overall health and well-being. This led her to the Denver Metropolitan University where she took her pre-requisite courses in order to apply to chiropractic college.
Kay received her Doctor of Chiropractic Degree following an intensive, 40-month, full-time resident study and clinical internship at the New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, NY. This premier program places special emphasis on neuromusculoskeletal conditions and overall patient wellness.
“I am grateful to have found such a special place to put down roots, and I’m very excited to be working alongside Dr. Julie and the team of wellness professionals at IWC.”
Kay enjoys reading, staying up to date on the latest medical research, running (she has completed both a marathon and half-marathon), skiing, snowboarding, and all things outdoors. Look for Kay at our local beaches on her SUP (stand up paddle board), her new favorite way to explore our island.
Emily Stuart, LMT
Emily’s massage is strong, patient and intuitive, incorporating trigger point release, deep tissue, myofascial release, point work and reflexology in a way that best suits the individual.
After studying anatomy, physiology and biology at the University of Alaska, Anchorage, Emily received her massage training at Everest College in 2009. She also studied Reiki in Thailand (2004) and has taken continuing education classes in Qi Gong and acupressure. Emily has been using reflexology since 6th grade after learning it from one of her grandparents. In 2013, Emily began training in aquatic bodywork with Dr. Julie Rosenblatt and will receive her 200-hour WATSU certificate this year.
Emily travelled extensively, yet always knew Kitsap would be home when she settled down. While working at the Coastal Café in Kingston, Emily met her husband, Brian. They have one son who is currently in 5th grade on Bainbridge. After finishing massage school, Emily and Brian operated an organic wheatgrass farm for two years while Emily built her clientele in the area.
When Emily is not giving massage, she enjoys gardening, kayaking, attending concerts and yoga.
Ruby Jones, LMT
Ruby studied massage therapy at Ashmead College, graduating in 2005.
Ruby began her career working in resort spas, years later expanding to more clinical style massage with a rehabilitation wellness clinic. She practices myofascial release, trigger point therapy, positional release technique, as well as other manual techniques to release connective tissue and improve mobility.
“I enjoy using a combination of different strategies to help my clients lighten the body and mind. My interests in improving movement patterns, paired with a love of bodywork fuels my passion for educating clients about "tuning in" to one's self and that movement is vital to whole body wellness.”
Married, with three children, Ruby has lived on the Kitsap Peninsula for 15 years. When not at swim lessons for her son, or at the gym with her husband, she enjoys spending the day at the beach with the whole family or vacationing at Lake Chelan any time of the year.
Kelley Johnson, LMT
Kelley found her passion for massage therapy when experiencing the healing benefits herself after a series of four motor vehicle accidents. “Massage therapy left me in better shape than before my accidents. I am a living testament to the therapeutic benefits of massage.” Her passion met its purpose when she obtained her certificate as a licensed massage therapist in the state of Washington.
Kelley’s goal is to ignite hope and healing in people who are recovering from an array of injuries and living with pain. “By treating pain at the source, we can help fight the need for narcotics and pain relievers in daily life.” She reports that most people she has met experience some type of soft tissue pain in their lives, whether it be from a car accident, sports, chronic stress, the gym, your job, or an injury.
Each of Kelley’s massage therapy sessions is fully customized to your body and specific to your needs at your stage of healing. She uses a variety of massage modalities, including neuromuscular therapy, myofascical bodywork, and cupping.
Kelley’s passion for health and wellness spills into her life outside of her career as well. She finds her greatest sense of peace on mountain peaks and is passionate about her yoga practice and time at the gym.
