It's what I've heard countless times from people who come in to my facility

statements most people can't believe - until they see the results for themselves.

D3C_4400

When I go to a conference or workshop I hear two types of feedback from people. Either they’ve implemented biofeedback in their training and gotten the best results (whether that be pain resolution, or performance) of their life, or they can’t figure out how to get started. Jen, too, hears the same thing often. Here’s

Taking Back Function

FunctionAllTheThings

It’s time we take back function, and not just in terms of the bastardized word everyone loves to hate.

How Long Will it Take?

Pregression Is The New Regression

“I don’t like that word, regression. I think we should call it a pregression.” At that moment the roof of the gym parted, angels started playing trumpets, champagne rained from the heavens and a radiant light shone down upon us. My friend and client, Jane, had solved a problem that had been plaguing me for

Success is Greater Than Failure is Greater Than Inaction

I knew as soon as the words left my mouth I regretted it. They weren’t my words, and I was just parroting back something I had heard way too often. “Just keep failing. Just keep failing until you figure it out.” Ugh. I wince just hearing myself repeat it in my head. It has been bothering
