" " We believe that, in many people, illness is allowed to develop because kinesthetic awareness has been lost......
The only way to rediscover kinesthetic awareness is to affirm that YOU are as worthy of your own attention as anyone or anything else in your life."
" So, it is always a good idea to find out what else might work for you. After receiving your doctor's advice and/or prescriptions, the next step of your treatment is in your won hands -and the next, and the next.
"Do your own thinking -it is time to change the way you interact with your body. It is time to learn to nurture it."
"Our emphasis in Self-Healing is upon movement, because movement is the very essence of life."
