EP98: Fascia & Immunity, CBD, Alcohol and the Nervous System with Alicia Fajardo

Alicia Fajardo is the owner of Transformations Studio in Portland, Oregon and creator of The Fajardo Method of Holistic Biomechanics®. This modality focuses on nervous system health and biomechanics, which include body structure, alignment, and healthy, supported movement.
