Did you know?
About 85% of all aches and pains in the body can easily be fixed yourself but most people continue to suffer, sometimes for years or decades, because they just don’t know how to do that?
Here’s the problem you face: you’ve got this issue in your hips (or low back, knee, hamstrings, quads) and the only thing that helps is seeing a skilled massage or physical therapist, but it only helps for a little while. Then that pain/dysfunction comes back. The cycle goes on and on.
Repeating this pattern means you will always have to rely on someone else, someone who you pay a lot of money, to make you feel better. And it doesn’t even last! Sometimes it actually gets worse and you end up taking lots of ibuprofen or Tylenol, which can destroy your liver.
FreeBody Therapeutics will provide you the skills to treat your pain and tension on your own at home without spending hundreds of dollars on therapists or risking your health going to an office for treatment.
