Ask yourself…

  • Are you looking to reconcile differences and inconsistencies in your movement education?
  • Do you desire to know more about how the body truly functions; how it truly moves?
  • Are you treating / training causes or just the compensations?
  • Do you want to be able to treat / train any and every patient / client effectively?
  • Are you looking to rejuvenate your career, enhancing your passion and purpose?
  • Do you want to share an experience with other passionate movement professionals?

Invest in You and Your Career:
ROI of the GIFT Mentorship Program

The GIFT journey is more than just another set of letters after your name. GIFT creates value to you as a practitioner, to your clients through the best treatment and training plans, and to your career by setting you apart from others in your field.

While determining value is, of course, subjective and personal, it is also exponential! Once you demonstrate the value of what you’ve learned, the rewards will follow.
