The movements are able to expose our weaknesses and imbalances. Even at basic levels of movement significant compensations can exist.

Heidi says… “My goal is for clients to develop an exercise based health management strategy that will keep them not only functionally and physically strong but emotionally and mentally strong; to give them confidence in being committed to a healthy exercise habit that is both preventative and proactive. Whether they come to see me for an exercise program to lose weight or because they have been in a motor vehicle accident, I want my clients to feel internally motivated that they can make a difference when they are committed to an exercise program.”
