Functional Manual Therapy®
Owner Elizabeth Weiss is a Certified Functional Manual Therapist®, trained by the Institute of Physical Art. She continuously trains with this institution to widen her knowledge on effective healing. “Functional Manual Therapy® (FMT), is an integrated evaluation and treatment system that promotes optimum human performance by enhancing total body mobility and CoreFirst® postural and movement strategies” (Institute).
“Recent research and functional imaging of the brain continues to reveal the interrelationship between pain, muscular inhibition and poor movement strategies. Just mobilizing joints, giving patients stretching and strengthening exercises, or having a patient participate in “core stabilization” is not sufficient to address the complex interrelationship between the available mobility of the human system and the integration of automatic and volitional motor strategies” (Institute).
