I was one of the lucky competitor
I hadn’t found any relief with massage over those years, and had resigned myself to living with the discomfort
Days later, I’m still feeling relief and relaxation
Thank you Dr. Ron for straightening me out and making my babymoon extra special. Oh! And your awesome restaurant recommendations
“Ron you are an amazing chiropract
