Comment from a new patient that was seen yesterday: her third visit. "I will take labor over that back pain any day." Fortunately she is doing much better: standing up straight, and in much less pain. A good start. If you know someone, friend, family or co-worker who is putting off taking care of their back, please let them know how simple and easy it is to get started at this office. Perhaps we can prevent a serious episode!

“I have studied with a number of tai chi masters and teachers. Their teaching methods often caused me pain- sometimes lasting for months, or did nothing to alleviate the pain my wrong postures were causing. I have read hundreds of books and articles on tai chi and memorized lots of tai chi movements and forms, but after all of that study, my back, knees, ankles, and feet were still hurting. In just two classes you showed me how my physical postures were creating that pain, and you showed me how to move properly, which has reduced my pain by about 90%. I have never seen tai chi presented as effectively as you present it.”
