Oh the irony! When we were kids we wanted nothing more than to stay up late and never go to bed. It felt as though going to sleep, whether at night or for naps, was more of a punishment than a necessity. Little did we know then just how much sleep we actually needed.

You might be a professional or semi-professional athlete in Laguna Niguel or maybe you enjoy an occasional tennis match or round of golf on the weekend at one of our beautiful local courses. This describes many active and healthy people who live in South Orange County. It also describes many of my clients.
