regain your balance and your lifeDancing couple with renewed balance

Reduce the fear of falling and regain your balance

There is only one way to see things, until someone shows us how to look at them with different eyes.

Eyes, head, and body.

In order to feel balanced, all three systems must agree.

Where there is disruption between the eyes-head-body there is an increased risk of fall and overall function.

Are your systems out of agreement?

Your eyes

Where am I in space and what is straight ahead?
Where are things in relation to me?
How do I program my body to interact? 

Your head

What is up and which way am I facing? 

Your body

How do I move in space and match vision with the ability to reach and grasp and manipulate objects?

Sometimes, it's not concussion related at all, but caused by an assortment of health problems
