Empower through Knowledge, Movement and Awareness
What better way to share knowledge than to tell some stories.

Our mission statement at Diane Lee & Associates is to Empower through Knowledge, Movement and Awareness and what better way to share knowledge than to tell some stories.
Our intent is to share with you some stories from our practice and life experiences and connect with you in a way that there often isn’t time for in our treatment sessions.
We hope you enjoy what follows and look forward to your comments – they will influence future articles for sure. Follow us on Twitter @dianeleept and and Facebook to be advised when there is a new article to read.
