“As a therapist I’ve seen that a person’s health is improved by combining and looking at all aspects of their life, their; mindset, movement patterns, stress, sleep, lifestyle etc. This is why within my treatments I focus on education as a force to empower the entirety of a person’s well-being to facilitate change.”
