About Us

Manual Therapy Institute was established in 1999 as a continuing education resource for registered manual therapy practitioners. We have generous colleagues and mentors who have openly shared their knowledge and we feel a mechanism is needed to continue the dissemination of this wisdom.

Our courses emphasize the holism of the body while providing participants with hands-on skills, models of clinical reasoning and existing supportive evidence. It is our hope that the information we pass on will enable practitioners to broaden the scope of their clinical expertise and to achieve more effective results particularly with clients that often fall through the cracks of many manual therapy practices.
