    Published by Diana Damian on 6th May 2021

    Are you wondering if it's worthy to do the whole thing? Do it! You won't regret it! It goes sooo much more in depth, for every scenario you can think of you get the right steam plan, as well as the right food and movement therapy to follow in order to address the issues. If you are working with clients, it's a must! They will benefit. And you learn about the female anatomy from Raquel Lemus and how to stop excess bleeding from Kris Gonzalez.
