One thought on “Bio

  1. Following my daughter’s wedding, I treated myself to one of Sandra’s fascial therapy sessions. The experience was calming as well as invigorating. I found the tension I had accumulated for weeks prior melt away. I found renewed movement in my neck and the pain in my neck significantly reduced. As always, Sandra expanded my session by taking me through a series of exercises that I can do on my own to improve and increase my movement, posture, and overall health. Thank you Sandra for your help and interest in making me feel better!
