Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge. I’m excited to apply what I’ve learned. It’s the kind of work that really makes me feel like I’m making a difference to other’s quality of life.

I am thankful for your utube videos as I have recently been “diagnosed” with scoliosis of 25/50. Thank you, again, for your hard work. It looks like you are impacting the world with your work.

Your videos have been really helpful to me.  I’ve shared them with two Phyiscal Therapists.  For me, as a 66 year old woman with scoliosis, I’m looking for pain relief and a better understanding of where and how the muscles get stretched ~ or not.  You are really on to something here and, from what I can see, unique in what you are offering.  I hope you have continued success. Thanks again.Best, Joni
