What citizens say about RoM

Leah Weston

Kevin Ruiz

“They are all very approachable… educated & precise and they won’t give you an answer that is incomplete or wrong. They are always committed to my learning. I know now that there is more that my body can do than I understood before.”

- Kevin Ruiz
Melinda Sherwood

“I’m doing movements now that I never thought I could. My body is stronger, more agile, and more balanced than it has been at any other time in my life. It’s difficult to settle for less.”

- Melinda Sherwood
