He has owned three wellness facilities in Chicago, developed the Stress Away Strap, a multi-use, portable exercise, stretching devise for all ages to use.  During his wellness career Bill has assisted in helping hundreds to become empowered and in control of their health mentally, emotionally and physically.

“I believe movement as an  educational gateway that can empower individuals and couples to experience the amazing healing abilities of the human body.

The body’s purpose is not to be a tool of aesthetic beauty but a vessel for living and experiencing a rich, fulfilling life of service to others.

Age and life events alter the path of the human body but it is within our power, knowledge and ability to improve and maintain functional health. It is even more enjoyable when done with a partner.

The key to empowered health is to personally engage with our body, to learn from our body, and to partner with our body.”

 Knowledge through experience IS Power.

" Your body IS Precious.

It IS our VEHICLE for awakening.

Treat it with Care."
