"As apart of our training program with the Vees, we added a Fascial Stretch Therapy program which was used once and sometimes twice per week on the Players. Judy was fantastic in fascial stretching, her knowledge of the body and how the fascial system works on the body gave our players more flexability which in turn decreased injuries. The deep stretch while moving the body into a greater ROM helped with the players gaining strength and power with their longer muscles after being stretched. Our team loved the stretching, it was definitely a great treatment for the guys and it paid off with the Vees setting a record 42 straight game win streak and winning the RBC National Championship."
