What is Manual Therapy?
This term refers to an amalgamation of a number of approaches to working with soft tissue and joint problems. Michael is able to use myofascial release (MFR), joint mobilizations, muscle energy technique (MET), strain-counterstrain, Cranial Sacral Balancing (CSB) and movement repatterning to release and correct problems in the musculoskeletal system. Pain and chronic stiffness that interfere with normal function are the two most common complaints of people seeking manual therapy.

Structural Integration (Rolfing®)
Structrual Integration is the science, art and philosophy of balancing the body in gravity. It is primarily concerned with establishing normal posture and movement. Through a series of ten sessions the body is progressively freed from the life long patterns of strain that have resulted in inadequate posture, poor breathing, stiff movement and tight muscles.
At the conclusion of the series there is a reduction or elimination of pain, an improved appearance via better posture and reduced stress, increases in energy and a fuller sense of purpose. People report that Rolfing effects many areas of their life, not just their body. Mental calmness and clarity are also associated with the Rolfing process.
“There is one major reason to take Rolfing seriously: it works. Not only can it dramatically change people's bodies, it can transform their lives as well. Rolfing is powerful stuff."
- Larry Dossey, M.D., Director Dallas General Hospital
