I have a sincere desire to share with you the experience and knowledge about inner calm, balance and health that I have gained through my career as a manual practitioner and through my practice as a martial artist. A proactive approach to health increases the likelihood of being able to enjoy life because your body is capable of functioning as it should. It is always my honour to assist others in the return to and in the promotion of health while respecting that each individual is truly the expert of their own body and mind. My role is as knowledgeable guide to re-acquaint you with your innate wisdom and health.
