Rene shares her knowledge with those who work with her. She can explain how lack of circulation, old injuries, joint misalignment and scar tissue can inhibit ones athletic ability and cause discomfort and inflammation. She created “The Steel Core Series” to alleviate a bound up diaphragm, and allow for more efficient breathing. Her unique “Shoulder Shop” became a popular fix for misaligned and tight shoulders from overuse and rotator cuff injuries. Her program for sports specific common complaints such as for skiiers and snowboarders, “The Sy Method” helps to align the legs so that they pull evenly on the hips and SI joint. She also addresses neuropathic pain and arthritis and has experience with ALS, Downs syndrome, scoliosis, paralyzation, amputations and prosthetics.
