what people are saying

"This thing saved me because I was getting worse quickly... When I came here I could barely walk. It caused me to have a long period of reflection, because when you get diagnosed with PD, you get a whole lot of advice, and most all of its negative... Pretty soon you feel like there's nothing left for me to do, but there is. Don't let anything that anyone's told you that you can't do it. Don't listen to that. Come and find out for yourself... you'll probably surprise yourself."

-Johnny Rozzell

“I can sleep at night. I don’t shake as badly. I have range of motion that I didn’t have before... They talk to you. They give each individual personal attention, and that's kind of a rare thing today... You can tell they really care about everybody who sets foot on this mat.”
- Bob Zipse
