See What Clint are Saying
"Craig is one of those people that understands the body. He understands there are different shapes, sizes, conditions, injuries, etc. and can adjust his workouts to tailor each individual. Most therapy sticks to a basic formula. Craig will change on the fly to make the movement or exercise right for you. I have worked with Craig for over 5 years. Not only as a previous spine patient, but as a health care practitioner taking care of spine patients, I know quality when I see it."
Cheri PhillipsPhysicians Assistant at The Spine Institute
"Craig worked with me throughout my entire pregnancy and it’s because of him that I felt amazing the whole time. And shortly after I had my son, he helped me painlessly return to my former self! In fact, I’m in better shape than I was before I got pregnant! I have a desk job, but Craig has taught me how to take care of my body so that I can live without pain, and THAT is a huge blessing. Thank you, Craig! You’re the BEST!"

"I’ve been working with Craig for nearly twelve years. He’s helped me rehabilitate two hip replacements and gotten me back out on the tennis courts. Working with Craig has given me confidence, made me look fabulous, and kept me from feeling like I’m in my golden years. I can still wear my Herve´ Legar dresses! If only I could pack him away and take him with me every time I travel. Craig’s the best!"
