As a semi pro ultra runner I’m always looking for a tune up to make the many miles I run more efficient. Brian helped me rework a movement pattern in my shoulder, and abdominal rotation resulting in a 30 second per mile speed up, while feeling like I’m running with the same easy effort.
I also enjoy Scott’a yoga classes to help me relax and reset my very stiff body.

Detective work is always fun to see happening in person, especially when the sleuth solves the mystery on us through a series of 'didn't see that question coming' and, alas, root cause is discovered. Gyro (Brian) has been finding the underlying issue of many a nagging-to-serious injuries for both the short-and long-distance running community and continues to astound me every time I walk in, or, in today's case, dial-in through a video call. Medically sound, spiritually grounded, and all around wise. He and his equally amazing wife are gems in the Carrboro and running community. Thank you both for being here. Skrapple.
