GILL

I started seeing Julia in February 2017 after many years of recurrent back issues. She immediately observed the causes of my problems and after several appointments, there was a marked improvement in my flexibility. I have adopted a regular regime of stretches and maintenance sessions and since then my hips and pelvis have remained in alignment. 
Julia is very knowledgeable in her field and her use of biokinetics has had a profound positive effect on my physical well being

Julia has been instrumental in helping recover from patella tendinitis in my right knee. Rather than treating the problem at source (just in my knee), Julia used was able to identify muscle imbalances in my body and gave me exercises to strengthen these muscle groups.  I was also treated with a Compex machine alongside massage, which proved to be very effectively. I subsequently bought a Compex to help me recover and train and am able to use it with Julia's tuition. Julia's expertise was invaluable in treating my injuries and recommending the appropriate exercises. The world of biokinetics is a something that is very new to me and I'm very glad to have found someone who is an expert in the field.

 

I can't recommend Julia highly enough and would urge anyone with any sort of injury to seek her help.

Hi Julia, thanks for the exercises. Just want to say you are amazing.... first time ever I have felt so good. Still can’t believe what you have done in one treatment and it made such a difference. I have slept so well, and could sleep on both sides which was impossible before, no pins and needles and on top off it I managed to take my top of easily. Can’t wait for my next treatment. Will definitely pass your good work on.  I have never felt so good with any other treatments I had before.

Julia was great and I really felt looked after. Everything Julia did she explained to me and made me feel empowered to know my body and what I needed to do to feel better.
As a new mum it was challenging to find the time to do the exercises but Julia understood this and helped me find exercises which could be done around my little one.
You will definitely see results if you put the effort it in. My lower back pain has gone and while I still need to do more work I have gone onto a maintenance plan so that I can find the balance after starting back at work.
Would I recommend JT Biokinetics? Yes, without fail. And I have.

I was delighted with the results I achieved by working with Julia. She was extremely thorough, and took me through a step by step process, giving me sets of daily exercises to rehab my hip. You have to be prepared to work hard and commit to completing these in order to progress. I'd thoroughly recommend Julia to anyone who is determined to get back to their chosen sport or activity.

Julia is knowledgeable and caring and her positive attitude was inspirational. At the start of the treatment I was very wary of movement because of long-term ankle and back pain, but by the end I was back to swimming, had started running and the exercises had given me greater confidence, flexibility and strength.

Julia was recommended to me by several friends as I had pain in my hip, Within one session it was greatly improved.
By following the exercise plans set after each session the pain was relieved and the reason for it found. I'm so glad I saw Julia.

I can honestly say, working with Julia has changed my life!
I have learnt so much about myself and no longer have to limit myself to what I am able to do, and the best bit, I am no longer in pain. Julia has armed me with the tools to go forward and I feel like my old self. I cannot recommend her enough!

I first started seeing Julia in October 2017 as I was having a lot of pain in my lower back, extending down through my legs, knees and lower legs. I couldn’t walk for any amount of distance without being in extreme pain and limping. I would get swelling around my knees and walking up and down stairs was very painful.


Julia could feel that some muscles throughout my body had a lot of tightness and some were overcompensating for others as the main issue was ‘lazy glutes’. The work Julia does can be painful at times, however, the benefits are and continue to be immense. Straight away my body felt so much more relaxed and looser, it’s amazing how used to feeling a certain way you get, until Julia gets her hands on you!


Julia has always set me various different exercises to do at home throughout my time seeing her, sending me video clips of them which are really helpful, I still do a variety of exercises now and the improvement in me is really good.


Initially, I saw Julia once a week to really get a grip of everything, I now see her once a month. I very rarely have pain in my lower legs now, my knees are so much better, only really the occasional twinge and my back has improved as well.


I recently attended Badminton Horse Trials with my daughter and managed to walk round the course for hour’s pain free. If it wasn’t for the work that Julia has done for me there is no way I could have done that without being in agony.


I am extremely grateful to Julia and will continue to see her on a monthly basis to keep me ticking over!

Julia had a great approach throughout our appointments, all of which were carried out over Zoom.
It was amazing how she looked at my overall posture when accessing my injuries and explained so clearly how they were caused. As a result, we worked on a range of movements that were not just localised to the areas of my injuries. These improved my overall posture and engaged muscles that were not used at all previously.
I was experiencing quite a lot of knee and hip pain when running prior to the treatments, which has now gone away completely.
I would definitely recommend Julia to a friend!

 I am always suspicious when I read testimonials like this however, for the first time ever I am writing one as I would like others to benefit.   For over 25 years I have seen a variety of different people for back issues.  I have received better results in a short time with treatment from Julia then I have had with years of treatment from others.   Finally someone treats the cause as opposed to just easing the pain.

LOUISA 

I spent 6 months (and a lot of money) trying to get an injury fixed to no avail before Julia was recommended to me.  With her approach of identifying the cause and treating this as well as the symptoms, providing treatment and tailoring a bespoke strengthening and return to exercise plan, I was soon pain-free and able to return to running. I can highly recommend her, in fact, I often do!

DAN

I was recommended Julia by a friend.

A year before, I had an arthroscopy on my knee at the age of 43, but it still wasn’t right. I had basically given up on any hope of running.

My friend persuaded me to try Julia, because she was different from surgeons and even physiotherapists. I quickly found this out.

What I liked about Biokinetics from day 1, is that the work starts right there in the treatment room. I walked out of the first session, not with a list of exercises to try, but having had hard, physical interventions that made me feel like progress had already been started. Yes, there was homework to do, which I did, but each week I felt some signs of progress. The use of the electrodes for strengthening is great - you feel like you’ve been to the gym without all the effort! And Julia has a direct, but engaging manner which means that you get honest communication and feedback, but always knowing that she’s on your side. And the way she explains what’s going on means it all makes sense, and you trust the direction she wants you to go in.

After 10 sessions, the difference was more than I would have hoped for.

I am back running again. I don’t think I’ll ever do a marathon, but I know I can go out for a 5k park run without having to worry, and can make a meaningful contribution in a game of lads v dads football! And of course, cycling and swimming are firmly on the agenda whenever I like.

I would highly recommend Julia and Biokinetics for anybody who has a problem, and certainly for anybody who has given up hope on the standard surgical and physio routes.
