What is Manual Medicine?
Manual medicine is the use of hands on techniques to aid in diagnosis and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal disorders in patients of all ages. It directs specific attention to the structural aspects of body function and their role in all disease processes. Manual medicine is based, in part, on the principal that the body is capable of self-healing and defense against disease when in an optimal structural balance.
What is Nutritious Movement™?
"Nutritious Movement is a whole-body movement program that utilizes exercises, alignment adjustments, and habitat (lifestyle) changes to better move all trillion of your body's parts." - Katy Bowman

From a rehabilitation perspective, Nutritious Movement micronutrients (corrective exercises that help mobilize any sedentary spots brought about by years of being casted by modern habitats) and macronutrients (larger categories of movement like walking, squatting, carrying) help move your body toward its anatomical neutral and decrease wear and tear on the body that we normally associate with aging.
What is Applied Kinesiology?
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis. AK is a non-invasive system of evaluating body function. The combined terms “applied” and “kinesiology” describe the basis of this system, which is the use of manual muscle testing to evaluate body function through the dynamics of the musculoskeletal system.
