Professional Philosophy

When mobilizing, stretching, or strengthening doesn't work, there's usually a reason for it. After thirty days of self-treatment, it's time to seek a diagnosis and well-rounded approach to all of the individual pathologies causing one's symptoms. Fitness has a very prominent place, but not in compensation for addressing other areas of life that are problematic.

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." ~Albert Einstein

***I believe in everyone, all of the time.
