It s treatment is aimed at unlocking your potential through releasing adhered layers of connective tissue.

Her eye for detail allows her to identify even the subtlest of movement issues that might be contributing to bigger injuries. Julia also practices Lyno which allows her to get results through hands on treatment and movement rehabilitation. Julia completed her Doctorate in Exercise Physiology at the University of Cape Town, where she specialized in paddling biomechanics. This has provided her with a wealth of knowledge in terms of how the human body should move to both improve performance and avoid injury.
