This is Nick's story:
Jesse helped me understand the underlying causes of my low back pain and patiently address them step by step. My back feels stronger, more flexible, and more resilient than it has in a decade. I am an active person approaching 50 -- with walking, jogging, yoga, strength training, and martial arts all part of my regular activities. I had suffered periodic episodes of low back pain for more than 25 years, becoming more frequent and more intense in my 40s. A spasm during my most recent episode left me wincing for more than 10 days and searching for a new approach. With his rare combination of art, science, empathy, patience, and communication, Jesse helped me reframe mentally and physically everything I had been doing for years to "protect" my back. Working with Jesse has been the single best investment I have made in my health. I am so grateful for his help. Robert A.
