Pinterest is a very popular, but often under-utilized, social media platform where people can bookmark, or "pin," fun and interesting things from all across the internet.

I have been working with people with various health challenges from the importance of playing games to Alzheimer's Disease, and from tai chi to the benefits of sleep, for more than 30 years.

No other soft tissue of the body influences structure and functionality and dominates the body more than fascia.
