"Tim's hands-on approach to pain and limitation is one of a kind -- and gentle. While I was at first skeptical, he helped me to recover lost mobility from an old injury at a downtime in my life when not much else was really working. Happy today, I can now walk for continuous miles without pain."

Dr. Tim Sobie’s Online Course Delivery Platform at SOBUS WellCare




Common and usual Workout Routines are only effective in reinforcing what's there.

...and it's 'what we're not aware of ' that catches up with us; leading to hidden habits, underlying tension, and patterns of misuse. FBX can help!




Every Sentient Being  has a fluid & neuroplastic biology

BFF gets you unstuck from stasis of life. these anxious times, 'Breathing, Fluids, and Flow ' can indeed become your reliable BFF (Best Friend Forever), in helping you to access airspace, heart space, head space & cell space.




Feeling Overwhelmed? Pulled in Multiple Directions?

Your inner gyroscope needs a new navigation! using my inner-ear experiential anatomy process as a vestibular framework for ergonomic workspace & positive social-emotional presence, you too can harness internal superpowers for cultivating an ever-more-confident state of 'Neutral-Midrange-Maximum-Ease' in almost any confrontation situation that you may ever encounter.  




Outside Adjustments are only an option -

not a necessity!

Banish Back & Neck Pain + Tension another way. 

Send out an S.A.S. instead of an S.O.S.  !


...while vertebral manipulation and soft tissue mobilization / release techniques are skillful applications for the short term; they are not meant to become a dependency-based  lifestyle for the long term. By harnessing upgrades in 'background body schema' as a whole, and enlisting the power of neuroplasticity with Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT), you too can acquire a more resilient & self-organizing & functional spine.

“...unless there is significant change within a person's internal model for the sensory representation of effective action, becoming expressed and confirmed through new attention to new movement, then there is really no change at all..."

       Clinical Research Dissertation 2016

Virtual Reality Bones™

I developed Virtual Reality Bones™ as a new tool that helps clients to clarify and shift their internal model - their “self image” or internal representation of their unique 'body map' -  so they can make life-long changes for more effective use of whole self & pain-free action in the world. I look forward to sharing my work & application certification process with you.

Interoceptive Touch™ 

Cognitive Manual Therapy – Hands-on manipulation and manual therapy techniques with intent to alter body perception away from ‘correction of illness pathology’ and forward toward ‘the development of functional possibility’ with particular emphasis upon exploiting the inherent robustness of skeletal density contiguities being distributed throughout the entire body's skeletal framework as a whole.

Clarify & Solidify your New Practice Advantage!
