"I do not believe that there is just one glove that will fit everyone. I have dedicated almost two decades of my life to learning various treatment modalities because I believe the more tools I have the better I am able to help you, and the more tools I am able to pass on to you the better you are able to help yourself". "Treatment is just the beginning, I want to help you look beyond and to thrive".
