After the Series
What happens once you finish the 10 series?
The changes that happen to the body and posture during the 10 series are lasting. However your body is like your car. With your car you get the oil checked and you get it serviced regularly, to keep it working effectively. Like your car your body needs to be kept in running order. It is recommended that a client gets 3 sessions every 1 to 2 years spaced out over a couple of months. This is to clear any new stress or injuries that have accumulated in the body. If a client suffers a fall or injury it recommended to get a session to prevent the build-up of injured tissue.
