The session will identify under and overdeveloped movement patterns to help alleviate chronic pain and dysfunction in the low back, tightness in the neck, shoulders, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet.


    The practitioner will be given simple and safe functional movement drills to help live with less pain and better overall function.
