What You Will Learn

  1. To create mutual trust and build credibility as a professional provider of Muscle Health and Exercise based health and fitness services. We do this by taking the time to discover all of the relevant information about an individual’s physical, emotional and medical needs and educate them about our services and their physiologic systems.
  2. To establish a long term working relationship with an individual as ongoing manager of their health and fitness services assessing, improving, and progressing their physical movement needs. We do this by evaluating their history, performing physical assessments, developing and implementing improvement actions, teaching movement skills and fitness processes that systematically progress/maintain their physical health over time.
  3. To develop a relationship of advocacy that supports an individual’s physical needs, helping them to connect with local and regional resources that serve their ongoing health goals. We do this by proactively developing relationships with providers from all fields of professional healthcare.
  4. To develop a “top of mind” point of contact relationship where we are perceived as a trusted confidante and long-term manager of their personal health and fitness as it relates to the performance of their neuromuscular system.
  5. To be recognized as a “World Class” provider of muscular health and fitness service.
  6. Systematically gather the information we need to safely and accurately target the individual’s needs.
  7. To save time and money by doing our homework, tightening the relationship between the practical applications of science and the intangibles of human interaction, “the art” of our craft.
  8. Develop and promulgate a highly personalized process that restores and improves our customer’s health status and possibly reduce or even eliminate pain by improving the function of their muscular system.
  9. To create a learning construct via documentation for practitioners that is “visco-elastic” – meaning that it is solid and can be counted on to prepare them to serve the client but is at the same time fluid and can be molded to fit personal requirements and new data.
