"I went to Deena with shooting back pain and a mysteriously swollen knee and reduced knee flexibility.

Within weeks I was back in the gym, knee swelling was gone, and flexibility was back.

Deena helped me 'relearn' how to walk in a way 'that nature intended' - or at least in a way my body was happier with - and showed me simple exercises to correct posture.

For the transformation she helped create, this was perhaps the most cost-effective investment I've ever made in health!"
