I thank our creator for people like you who are always helping others. Bless you and yours.

Thank you for your enthusiasm, your positive energy, the recipes. I look forward to each of your emails!!

Hi Dr Kim! I work all day and love your at the desk exercises. I do have a problem with my wrists. The exercise where you put your hands flat down and stretch the arm is the problem. I have to grab the edge of the chair by curling my fingers around the end of the table or the chair and then stretching up the arm and doing the muscle massage thing. I don't know if I will ever be able to do it flat handed my upper hands are so darn stiff. Thanks for everything you do!!!! karin

I'm going to start doing these tomorrow. Thank you for sharing!

your video, you should say at the beginning (not only in the middle) that people with cervical spine issues or whatever, should not do certain stretches.

thank you so much Dr. Kim. I was one of the ones who asked for this info and I intend to share it with my massage clients who are not able to get on the floor and also my own father who is 86.
