Does one leg get more sore than the other? Does one side of your back chronically ache? Is one side of your neck always stiff? Or do you notice your shoes wearing differently on the bottoms when comparing right to left? Do you care about these differences? Are you curious to correct them and do you have time and energy to watch the magic happen?
