Philosophy: If you were to purchase a car, would you then drive for 100 years without taking care of it? If the car's wheels were crooked, and the axel was off, and the transmission was malfunctioning, would you continue to drive it? Of course not! Understanding the way our body works and moves is a matter of mechanics, and I can teach you to see your own problems and fix them in the way that a mechanic might fix a car. I believe in teaching clients to move better, so that they can feel, look, and be better.
