Additional Resources
PINTEREST...

I have Boards on Pinterest for individuals who
want to have easy access to stretches, pain management solutions, effective exercises, nutrition suggestions, and various "fitness" strategies for the mind, body, and spirit. Feel free to paste the address in your browser:
pinterest.com/ewsomatherapy


The boards are recommendations based upon my training and experience working successfully with clients and students over the past 16 years. My recommendations are not to replace any medical interventions. If you have suggestions for a board, please let me know. I will be continuing to grow the site so check back or "follow" my site for updates.

YOUTUBE/GOOGLE+/TWITTER/BLOGSPOTI have uploaded my new 6-way neck stretch to YouTube, as well as my Google+. This is a new venture for me and the video is quite amateur, but the stretch sequence itself is very effective, so give it a try. I am excited to offer videos that will benefit your health and aging. Stay tuned!

I have posted more info and photos on Google + and Twitter as well as new articles I am writing on pain management and the point release technique on my "pointreleasetechnique.blogspot.com" site. If you find them to be helpful, share them with your friends and family so they can get the benefits as well.

DEVOTIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY...
I take photographs and put scriptures on them as a devotional practice. If you are interested in photographs with scripture or to learn about the gospel, you can go to www.wordofgodphoto.blogspot.com and share them with your friends and family.
