Thanks Mary Beth!

I see Evan for scoliosis. With our regular work together Evan & I discovered the muscular patterns the scoliosis has caused. By unwinding these patterns I have a more balanced posture, greater range of motion, and much less discomfort overall for a condition that has become significantly more pronounced as I’ve gotten older. Not only has the scoliosis not progressed since my work with Evan, it has actually improved without surgery!
