About Us

Bull City Soles was founded in 2018 by Julie Hunt Marciniak, NCLMBT #2153. We were the first massage studio in NC where all massage therapists were trained in various levels of Barefoot Massage. Our studio is equipped with a Radiant Health Infrared Sauna and a Cold Plunge for deliberate exposure to heat and cold therapies to enhance mental and physical health and performance.

Hi, I'm Julie Hunt Marciniak. I've been a bodyworker for 30 years. I was a solo therapist for 20 years and the owner of North Pointe Body Therapies, now Bull City Soles. I often said I never wanted to be an employer, yet here I am. There are still days I'm like, "What was I thinking?"


God has blessed me with the gift of mercy and touch, and I love helping others with their body's "tissue issues." I am also passionate about teaching and mentoring other massage therapists and helping them realize their potential.
