Struggling with a musculoskeletal problem? Chris Vercelli is ready to help!

Struggling with a musculoskeletal problem? Chris Vercelli is ready to help!

My story of why I do what I do began at age 16. At that time I was 9 months into a 26-month treatment for leukemia, 80 pounds overweight and in such bad physical condition that I literally could not walk three blocks without almost passing out. I felt like my life was completely slipping away from me.

That’s when I decided to take back control of my health through diet, exercise and living a healthier lifestyle. My body was completely transformed in 22 months.

The institute is starting new classes this month for those who want to learn more about this unique form of treatment.
