Integrative Manual Therapy

What is Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT):

Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT) is a gentle hands-on form of bodywork.  IMT uses gentle pressures to release tightness, compression and imbalances in any anatomical structure of the body, i.e. muscles, joints, and organs.  Releasing restrictions and rebalancing the anatomy of the body ignites the body’s innate capacity for self-healing.  There will be improvements in blood flow, organ function, digestion, respiration, muscle flexibility, and even mood.  These changes can transform your world allowing you to live the pain free active lifestyle you desire.

IMT integrates many different techniques including:

  • Myofascial Release
  • Cranial Therapy
  • Lymphatic Drainage
  • Visceral Mobilization
  • Strain-Counterstrain
  • Muscle Energy Technique
  • Neurofascial Process

IMT is comprehensive and includes techniques for all anatomical structures within the systems of the body including the musculoskeletal system, nervous system, visceral/organ system, respiratory system, circulatory system and all soft tissue.  The body is a constellation of all these systems which are intricately connected and, while independent, depend on one another for the entire body to function efficiently.  The nature and intricacy of IMT allows for the practitioner to find and work on the cause of a problem instead of just the symptoms.  This is what ultimately brings resolution and healing to the body.
