JANET MATTHIES is a Boston-based Integrative Bodyworker, specializing in strength and flexibility. Since 2002, she has worked with highly disciplined adults, teens, and children who depend upon physical dexterity for their work or their chosen lifestyle, but who may be struggling with injury, pain, or lack of strength and flexibility. People call her the 'Crazy Stretching Lady' because of her unique, unconventional way of combining Asian yoga with western resistance training. Janet started on this path when she saw young children getting injured in school sports programs due to insufficient knowledge about stretch training. Over the years, she's helped many athletes and other active people improve their performance, gain confidence and eliminate injury issues from their lives. Her personal mission is to educate her clients so they can become independent, rather than dependent, upon doctors, chiropractors, and other physical therapists – including herself.
