Tony Fondren, LMT
I believe in looking for the root cause of the problem and addressing it at its source. I don't see the logic in treating symptoms, as they will just continue to reoccur, over and over again. Through keen observation I have noticed a direct correlation between pain and imbalances in the flow of blood and lymph. Areas of the body that are overworked will draw blood flow away from the areas that are under worked. Thus, it is the imbalances that need to be addressed in order to fix the problem.
Originally I had plans of becoming a mechanical engineer, and earned my associate degree while working in the automotive industry. In an effort to further my education I pursued a baccalaureate degree. However, my ever changing work schedule made it nearly impossible to complete. So, I took the skilled trades exam, and scored in the top of the class. The job I was offered required me to change direction, as I was offered the electrician apprenticeship. After several years I became increasingly aware that my spirit was just not into fixing robots and automation. I looked around and saw lots of pain and suffering and the robots I was working on didn't feel a thing. So, I set off on a path to learn to fix the human body, taking with me the knowledge of mechanics and electricity and applying them to heal my clients.
