He likes to use a 1 to 10 pressure-scale method to communicate the degree of firmness a client would like applied in order to relieve tight, aching muscles, improve mobility and help create a better quality of life for those with limited range of motion. Communicating well, and ensuring his clients have full control of their treatment, is very important to Noel.
