"At the top! I have had many 'world class treatments' and Dominick is right there!"

It is my intention to treat strain patterns before they become pain patterns. My goal is to provide relief by treating muscle imbalances that create asymmetry with hands-on therapy and movement education. I would like to help each client bring balance to their body and to cultivate more awareness of posture and movement so that they become more empowered to reinforce healthful changes that result from this work.
