Neuro Therapy and ARP Wave Founder Denis Thompson
Denis Thompson reached out to me at THE ACL CLUB and immediately I was curious about what he was saying. Here was his brief email:
"We should talk about WHY ACL recovery takes so long and it has nothing to do with the ACL. We work with the most elite athletes in the world and have treated hundreds of thousands of patients with better than a 95% success at eliminating pain without drugs and speeding up recovery. I think together we can help all your members."
See why I was curious?!
In this episode, Denis and I talk about how he got into Neuro Therapy, how he created ARP Wave, and how he is helping hundreds of thousands of people by treating the nervous system. You aren't going to want to miss this episode and I hope you share it with as many people as possible.
Denis is doing an exclusive offers for Show Your Scars Podcast Listeners...
