"A traumatic delivery of twins left me bed bound for weeks with the slowest progress to even be able to shower, get out of a chair or walk on my own. My heart could barely contain the disappointment that my body had betrayed me in this way. At my 6 week appointment, which I attended in a wheelchair, my doctor had little advice other than to start PT “when I felt ready.” I reached out to Juliana that same day. She met me where I was at; saving my sanity by giving me realistic and intentional work to reconnect to my recovering body. I worked with her 1:1 until she proposed her Movin' Moms group. In our classes, we pushed our minds and bodies towards our goals. I was instantly seeing progress. I stopped leaking, my back stopped hurting, I could get off the ground while holding my babies. We aren’t even finished with the full program and I have crushed my short-term goals and am close to my long term."
"I started working with Juliana from Pacer Physical Therapy when I was 2 months postpartum. This was my first baby so the postpartum journey was foreign to me. I didn’t know where to start, my core was weak, my incision was tender and running seemed like a very long journey away. During the program we met virtually once a week to do a group workout. There were also various videos about how to engage your core, help your posture, how to lift/hold baby properly, etc. The course was very easy to follow and always at your fingertips. In those 12 weeks working with Juliana I got back to running, I’m working out to my fullest potential (no modifications!) and I gained my confidence back. I also got to learn the fundamentals and basics that I didn’t even know before, making me an even better runner than I was previous to my first baby. I cannot recommend her class enough! Postpartum and learning how to care for a baby is hard enough as it is, let Juliana help you care for your body!"
"Juliana helped me have a safe and active pregnancy. She made sure I was able to still do my weightlifting and cardio as safely as possible to keep myself and my baby healthy. I live in the Philadelphia area and she is up in Boston so all of our appointments were virtual and she made everything very simple to understand and follow. She is easily the BEST physical therapist I have ever worked with! Now I am seeing her postpartum to help me get back to exercise so that I can keep up with my little one"
"Juliana helped me return to running efficiently and SAFELY after having my first child. Postpartum recovery can include discussion on the intimate and unpleasant topics of motherhood; however, Juliana's caring and professional demeanor made these topics easy to discuss. After frequent check-ins to adjust my program, I successfully returned to running without injury. Juliana's impressive competency in physical therapy, and frequent reminders to take my time, helped this restless mama get back into a routine and back into shape. I couldn't recommend Pacer PT enough for anyone in need of rehabilitation, especially for moms going through their postpartum journey."
"Dr. Juliana was so helpful in getting me back into exercise postpartum. She was very knowledgeable about making sure my body was healed enough for the exercises I was wanting to do. She listened to my specific goals and past workout routine to find progressions to return to that level safely. We did all of this virtually, so I would recommend her to anyone anywhere."
"Juliana is the absolute best! I began working with her about 4 months postpartum and she has made such a difference in my recovery. She individualized every session to suit my needs and helped me meet my monthly goals. She is motivating, encouraging, and truly caring. Your progress is her progress and she is very invested in making sure you feel your absolute best. Not only is she wonderful at what she does, she's a great person. I would recommend Juliana to anyone looking to achieve their personal fitness goals. She is a lifesaver!"
"I loved working with Juliana for my postpartum recovery. She provided me with step-by-step coaching to get me back on track to working out. Juliana specialized in Women's health, and when I first met her, I knew she had a passion for helping mamas like me feel their best! I had also met other great moms in her program to work out together, and it was a fantastic experience. Juliana also had other great programs, and check it out for yourself!"
"After 3 C-sections and a weak core, I slipped a disc in my back. After having little success with a hospital-based PT, I sought out a pelvic floor/women's heath PT specialist and came upon Dr. Juliana in the Back Bay who had rave reviews. I have been seeing her for 1-2 times a week and her care is superlative and I have had significant improvements with my back and core. She listens carefully, is very compassionate and extremely knowledgeable!"
"Juliana is an absolutely fantastic physical therapist and has helped me over the last 12 months recover from 3 major knee surgeries. I had to learn to walk, bend my knees, walk down stairs etc. and she helped me through all of it. Knowing exactly where to push me and how to keep it interesting with exercises so that I could still get some real exercise while recovering (which was incredibly important to me). She is thoughtful and listens exceptionally well, designing a program that works specifically for you and your lifestyle. She pushes me to set realistic goals and will ensure I reached all of them. On top of this her knowledge is outstanding and she simply cares about the people she works with!”
" Before working with Dr. Jules, I was not so interested in strength training. I was always hesitant to work with a trainer because I had a bad experience years prior with someone getting me to be very bulky and I didn’t feel good.
I found Dr. Jules and it changed my whole perspective. Dr. Jules motivated me and pushed me exactly how I needed. She taught me about my body and made me want to take better care of my body. She listened to my needs, but always inspired me to do more and get me past my comfort zone. Dr. Jules made training fun and helped me tone my body without ever feeling bulky or big. I learned how to work out in a safe way and the best way for my body. It is a pleasure working with her."

" I worked with Juliana as my personal trainer remotely for 9 months and can only SO highly recommend her! I was initially a bit skeptical of the idea of a remote trainer but was completely convinced after 1 video assessment session where she accurately pinpointed several old injuries/weak points- she seriously knows her stuff!
In all, I was extremely happy with the results I got working with Juliana. She helped me not only reach, but exceed my fitness goals and I am as fit as I have ever been in my life!"

"Where do I even begin? Dr. Jules is extremely knowledgeable and motivating. She takes the time to understand your injury and persistently checks in to make sure you are recovering while also safely challenging you to try new movements. I went from wearing a knee brace while walking around the house to challenging myself with weighted squats and lunges. Dr. Jules helped me get back to feeling confident in my movements, and I would highly recommend her to others!”
Virtual Return to Run Postpartum Client
"100/10 would recommend Dr. Jules to anyone working on getting back to full strength in a healthy and safe way! Previously to my c-section I was an avid runner and even competed at higher levels - but during my pregnancy I was unable to run. So when I had my daughter and I tried to figure out how to start up again.. it was a total disaster! Enter Dr. Jules - she gave me the confidence to lift and eventually run. She was thorough and straightforward about my weaknesses and it was exactly what I needed. I can’t thank her enough. "
Physical Therapy Client
“Juliana is truly the best PT I've ever had (and I've had a lot as a former college athlete!). She's kind, extremely knowledgeable and very effective. I came to Juliana with two injuries after trying a few other PTs. She was very patient in assessing and diagnosing my injuries, and uncovered some underlying systematic issues that were causing repeat injuries. She pushed me when I needed to be pushed (never beyond my comfort zone), and thanks to her I am fully recovered, in less pain than I have been for years, and have a plan to prevent future injuries.”
Virtual Running Program Client
"Working with Dr. Jules is a fun and professional experience. As a physical therapist myself, Dr. Jules is who I go to for advice, especially for all things relating to running and my running goals. Dr. Jules comes with years of experience competing and you can tell she goes above and beyond to further her education and personalizes each experience she provides to her clients and patients. She not only helps you heal, recover, and perform, but Dr. Jules also becomes your number one supporter on your journey. I am happy to have her in my corner."
Running Program Client
"From day 1, Dr. Jules said “we are going to do this together.” She built an entire program from couch to marathon in just 10 weeks. This included daily runs, strength and conditioning programs, and one long run weekly that would increase by 10% each week. Dr. Jules would be along side me every step of the way motivating me to do better. Her energy and drive always pushed me to keep going. I honestly could say I would not have been able to run my first marathon without her. She was an amazing mentor and trainer throughout my first marathon journey."
