In 2001, Tammy founded Point of Origin NEUROMUSCULAR & SPORTS THERAPIES to provide just such an integrated approach to total-body fitness and wellness.
Since that time, Point of Origin has grown into a recognized name in the community of alternative health. Tammy continues to strive for excellence each day, to meet each client's individual needs, to find the Point of Origin of each ache, to locate the source of your pain.
