Jones Spine Method

The ‘Jones Spine Method’

 
 
Matt brings his unique and effective approach to the Jones Spine Method series of seminars providing an intensive learning experience for those who prefer (or require) a one day format. The Jones Spine Method was developed originally to combat his own spinal issues after breaking his neck in a freak sporting accident and is now available for your organisation to benefit from.
