“You have a gift, and the knowledge and expertise that you provide to clients like me is so much more effective and valuable than so many other therapeutic disciplines and providers. I feel very confident in saying that since I’ve seen so many physicians, physical therapists and other alternative care providers since this mess started (many of whom have been very good and helpful, as you know). But if I had to put it into one word, I would say that your care is exceptional (specifically, your knowledge and expertise, results oriented and individualized approach, and understanding of the many complexities involved). And you’re nice!” Julie G.-back pain for 3 years
