“Connective Tissue is the supportive three dimensional system under yourskin that supports protects, and stabilizes everything:  Skin, bones, nerves, blood vessels, every cell in your body relies upon this flexible scaffolding to remain stable.

Recent science now recognizes that daily living causes connective tissue to become less supportive and responsive due to repetition that causes connective tissue dehydration or what we call Stuck Stress.  Even if you don’t have  chronic pain, you experienced stuck stress.  Feeling stiff when first get out of bed or when you get up after sitting for long periods of time.  We call this feeling a pre-pain signal.

Take Charge of your body and feel better!
