This is a collection of information to help improve health and movement. It includes articles, videos, and quotes that I have found helpful in studying the human species. Due to the complexity of this subject matter, I have tried to include a variety of variables that can influence the dynamic system.
In an attempt to avoid information overload, I’ve separated the information into different categories.
I will post each category separately to make it easier to scroll through.
The links below will be added over the next month as they are posted.
Feel free to follow me on social media to keep up to date on the latest postings.
Making this information accessible for everyone takes a great deal of effort and time. If you have the resources, please consider a donation. Your support to maintain this website is greatly appreciated.

The main reason I do this blog is to share knowledge and to help people become better clinicians/coaches. I want our profession to grow and for our patients to have better outcomes. Regardless of your specific title (PT, Chiro, Trainer, etc.), we all have the same goal of trying to empower people to fix their problems through movement. I hope the content of this website helps you in doing so.
