Richard’s specialization is integrated recovery therapy for injury utilizing trigger-point therapy coaching and PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) techniques. His training includes personal application of all modalities for mobility, cardiovascular and respiratory conditioning, strength development, and sports nutrition.
