Welcome to my profile page. I have been busy for a while and just recently got back to regularly visiting the IDEA website. (It is Septembr 2018) I am preparing to semi-retire. I say semi because I will most likely continure working with clients with medical and neurological issues until I am unable to so safely. But I am cutting back on all the other things I do. By the summer of 2019, I am hoping to no longer teach CEC courses or work with athletes. Those things are rewarding, but there are plenty of people doing those things. I don't think I will be missed too much. I will still be happy to answer questions if you want to contact me. And I will be answering a few questions here on the Q&A forum as a way of keeping in touch with the industry. If you are going to make a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii, I will also still be happy to recommend some things to consider about the island. And even meet you at the Kona pier for a swim if you are up for it. I wanted to let everyone that has contacted me know that I enjoyed interacting with them. To all that have come to Hawaii for a visit, I hope you get to come back soon. Now get back to living and learning.

    This guy is amazing. It is like he is psychic. He found the causes of things that have been bothering me for years. I haven't felt this good in decades. It is like he has a time machine. I want to start playing tennis again. We are working on getting there together. I recommend him highly.

    Thank you Max. I appreciate your high praise. You are doing all the work though, keep it up.

    I got Marilyn's posted, but the rest are some where in cyber space. Thanks Marilyn. I will call them occasionally to see if more appear.

    Hello everyone, I am actually leaving a review on my own profile because so many of my clients tell they have and it does not appear in my profile. After calling Idea, I found out that if you don't make an account you can't get your review on without my calling them to post it. I apologize for wasting your time trying to get a review on here. Apparently, dozens have disappeared. I give it 5 stars awesomely disappointing.

    Martin's water aerobic classes kept me fit until I decided to have knee joint replacements, and physical therapy was a snap since my muscles were already strong. Many thanks, Martin!!!
