Personal Quote: “‘Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.’ —John F. Kennedy. This statement has always stood out to me as a therapist, because therapy is not simply about restoring a patient to a better quality of movement. It is about restoring the basis for which a better quality of life is built.”
