REGAIN is a communication portal with the world. A speech bubble, so to speak, through which I share

  • the REGAIN approach to physical therapy, and
  • a growing body of popular and academic articles, created from my studies and experience in this fascinating field of healing.

The REGAIN Way is like the Tree of Life, always growing, providing healing, rest and recovery. Facilitating your understanding and knowledge as a door to health.
