My physical therapy education provided me with a very good foundation of the human body's anatomical and physiological knowledge. To provide complete healing, my search further led me to study massage therapy and other healing arts. Interestingly enough, my passion for the healing arts has led me back to my other passion - martial arts. I have now come to a full circle.
