Julie graduated as a sports physiotherapist in 2012, but her desire to learn more about the holistic approach in solving health problems was strong! So she started studying osteopathy at the FICO Osteopathy Academy in Antwerp. She graduated in 2017 as a certified osteopath.
Her brother's serious health issues confronted her, for months, with traditional medicine: its strengths, but also its weaknesses. It became very clear to her that “a holistic approach” (physical, emotional and mental) is of primordial importance.
A sustainable, ecological, mostly vegetarian lifestyle combined with mental well-being and a nourishing environment are Julie’s priority.
Besides her own practice in Wilrijk, she is also part of two multidisciplinary teams: “Urban Clinic” in Antwerp and "Revactief" in Niel. This offers the advantage of being able to collaborate with different disciplines in order to obtain complimentary advice and optimal solutions.
