What Our Subscribers Say
Director of Women's Chorus, Loyola University, Chicago
It feels as though I have spent a huge portion of my life as a professional musician dealing with tension, pain, stiff shoulders, tendinitis, and all kinds of bodily aches. I thought that was just part of being a musician.
