Nicolas Bestari

My mission is for you to live with the least amount of pain and to enjoy a healthy life!

My background is in Kinesiology, the study of human body movement. This multi-dimensional discipline covers the body as a whole, and the impact of physical activity on psychology, sociology and physiology.

My philosophy

I believe in a hands on approach to lifestyle changes and pain relief. My philosophy is to address your specific needs through the assessment of movement patterns, mobility, and nutrition. Building a plan suited to you that pushes your capacity, increases your functional movements and soothes pain.

With our tailored therapy plans you will create a solid foundation that will allow you to achieve your health and fitness goals.
