An FMR session with JC includes not only hands on soft tissue work, but assessment of dysfunctional movement patterns, recognition of mobility restrictions and stability limitations, and clear, precise guidelines toward making better decisions to help free your body from pain. Dog snuggling is also available at no extra charge 😉
