If you have knee pain or stiffness and you plan on staying active for many years to come…


If you’re unsatisfied or frustrated by what medical and fitness professionals have offered you… 


If you believe that your knees can improve – given the right circumstances… 

If you’re wiser than you were in your 20s and 30s and your knees need updated wisdom… 


If you’re willing to commit to a long-lasting solution… 


YOU are in the right place.  

Conventional medicine provides people with knee arthritis (osteoarthritis) with one or more of the following options:  

- medication (over-the-counter or prescription painkillers or anti-inflammatories, like ibuprofen / NSAIDs)


- steroid injections

- gel injections or regenerative medicine (like PRP injections) without supportive guidance afterwards  

- generic exercises 



And if these don’t work, the next recommendation is a knee replacement – immediately or when you can’t stand the pain anymore.  


This works for some people. 

But accepting knee replacements as an inevitable option does not work for my clients.
