Julie has been working in the Health & fitness industry since 1994. In 2000 Julie qualified as a Sports Therapist earning the Sports Therapy of the Year award in recognition of outstanding achievement in all areas of sports therapy

Julie also holds the Reps level 4 certificate as a specialist instructor in exercise for backcare.
Julie was one of the first two qualified KMI (Kinesis Myofascial Integration) practitioners in Suffolk along with Pilates East Anglia co- founder Fiona Palmer, training directly with Tom Myers founder of Kinesis and author of the renowned Anatomy Trains and James Earls founder of Kinesis Uk. http://www.anatomytrains.com
Julie is very much still involved in Pilates East Anglia but is now living and working on the Gold Coast Australia practising KMI Structural Integration, Sports and Remedial Massage & Pilates, including clinical/rehab and pre and post natal.
The combined training of Pilates and connective tissue work allows Julie to give sessions combining the hands on work with Pilates and movement exercise and using the Anatomy Trains connections to see beyond just the painful areas to where the underlying root of the problem may be.
Julie has joined forces with Julie Hammond a fellow KMI practitioner and friend of over 10 years and also from Suffolk (now based in Perth) to set up Bodywork Education Australia to bring high quality advanced bodywork training courses out to Australia:http://www.bodyworkeducationaustralia.com.au.
In 2010 Julie and Julie are the only 2 fully certified KMI practitioners in Australia although because of the effectiveness of KMI Structural Integration and the use of the Anatomy Trains to view the body it’s popularity is now increasing rapidly.
