“I first met Cecilia in July 2013 and I had constant back pain that severely affected my golf and lifestyle. Being a golf professional, I needed a program that healed my body and helped me stay pain free so that I can play consistently and at a high level. Cecilia and NG 360 have provided that program. She has helped me heal, I am currently pain free and I recommend her to anyone who wants to improve golf performance or play without pain. I believe that her product provides the necessary balance of stretching and core strengthening that would provide a platform to help anyone achieve their golf goals.”
