"Smith Young is an extremely gifted Myofascial Release Therapist that I would highly recommend to everyone. My son, who is a competitive cross country runner that was enduring quite an amount of foot pain from an old stress fracture, has consistently received incredible treatments from Smith Young. When we first came to see him, Smith pointed out many areas where my son's body was greatly out of postural alignment. He would explain the problems and detail how he would help gently bring his body back into optimal postural alignment through Myofascial Release. Through only a couple of sessions, my son's shoulders, hips, legs were in good postural alignment and his foot pain had been relieved. We were able to transition to more of a maintenance phase with more time between visits. Smith has a caring demeanor and an excellent command of his skills as a Myofascial Release Therapist. We are very greatful to him for all his help with our son and would recommend him to anyone." - J.M.
"Smith is a wonderful practitioner of MFR. I made an appointment with Smith, because I was experiencing pain that was affecting my ability to exercise fully. After just one session with him, my pain had gone, and I was able to exercise at a higher level. I have seen Smith several times since then. Smith is extremely professional, and he creates a very safe space for the work. He has wonderful energy, and he is passionate about his work and his clients. He has also treated my husband and daughter. I would highly recommend him." - Julia
