    Could someone please e-mail me the power points for these 3 webinars on muscle tone? The power points provide a visual example of how the choice of support helps with the positioning correction, while explaining same. In this presentation specifically, I was able to see how familiar (but never explored) supports assisted with rotation, pelvic stability, etc. We often grow fond of certain supports or brands and stick with them. Continuing education like this allows us to see that there are other solutions out there. The before-and-after photos are so helpful. Thank you.
