Doc reminds us that the exercises should be done properly. it starts from the head going down slowly, shoulder,arms,etc.and it will end…

Hello Sony,

 Great topic!  I think I may have received an instant message from you today but I usually keep my page up on my computer during the work day while I'm busy doing other things so forgive me for not responding.  I hope your week has been going well and I'm looking forward to many more interesting conversations.

 

Warm Regards,

Zach
