Article in Golf Chic magazine



CNHC Board Member, Earle Abrahamson, was interviewed by Golf Chic magazine in June about the benefits of soft tissue therapies and choosing a therapist by searching CNHC's online Accredited Register. Golf Chic is the Official Magazine of the Ladies European Tour. It is available in print and online. 

We would also like to congratulate Earle on his promotion to Professor of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning at the University of Hertfordshire. You can find his full biography on the 
Board Members page on our website.
