While dealing with daily living, our bodies are faced with numerous lifestyle stressors. The energy that our bodies need to live and grow is being drained – physically, chemically, and emotionally, and this is creating urgent health problems in our community. My roll is to guide individuals towards optimal health, helping them become better equipped to deal with the stressors of everyday life.
Goal for each patient: By improving nervous system function, quality of movement, mindset and nutrition, we can release the body’s full potential to adapt to health rather than dis-ease. “Widening/Increasing the GAP”
