Jason Dorminy - Stretch Therapist
You were made to move. If you are frustrated because you don’t move as well as you think you should due to nagging aches and pains, I want to help you regain movement that is easy and comfortable. Perhaps you are an athlete and you believe you are too stiff, too tight, and too sore, too often. I want to help you restore your freedom of movement so you can maximize your athletic performance.
For almost 20 years, I have worked as a Fitness Coach, helping individuals renew their bodies, restore their health, and recover their lives. From those eight years old to ninety-eight, from the homebound to the professional athlete, I have been blessed with the opportunity to guide and support so many wonderful individuals as they get their bodies back on track, stop missing out on life, and establish health for their future.
