Hitting the Trails

How to Achieve Optimal Gut Health

With optimal gut health, you can increase your friendly gut bacteria and your “bacteria balance” by changing what you eat. Bacteria live off of a variety of nourishing plant-based foods.

They help regulate your metabolism and even boost your immune system!

What makes our Evo’s special? Client stories part 2

I’m 65 now, I was just a baby at 59 for my first EVO session. I was walking through Waverton park one Spring morning and saw the flyers … and the rest, 1,100+ sessions later, is history. I think I’ve kind of rusted on to Evo…
