After over a year of shoulder pain, myofacial release therapy AND 3 different physical therapists…Blake has me moving pain free and getting stronger. He’s also helped me with some nutrition and fitness goals along the way. He listens and responds to what I tell him is going on. He’s also available to answer questions and offer support between appointments. I could not be more pleased! This is the beginning of a long partnership in my health! Thank you, Blake!!
