"I began ESSENTRICS® with Julie Mae in 2015. Her enthusiasm and detail to movement is unmatched. As a student of martial arts and high intensity training, Essentrics has complimented my life with rebalancing my body including my fingers and toes. Each session covers the little things that make a big difference in the movement required for fighting competitions and daily training. There is nothing Julie Mae cannot help someone do!” - Avery W., age 31
