Bridging the gaps between neurology, metabolic function and biomechanics of the body to optimize injury rehabilitation, active recovery and human performance.

Health and human performance are a constant journey, not a destination. Our body is constantly fighting stressors, both internal and external. Train your weaknesses/maintain your strengths and balance your internal function. If you train hard… Recover harder!
