"After three sessions I feel more balanced, upright and less tense. I now know how to get instant relief by learning some basics movements. I’m also now engaging all the muscles in my body rather than putting excess strain on just a few. These movements can easily be incorporated into your daily routine. Colm was patient and informative, and his expertise is self evident. Highly recommended."
