Integrative Orthopedic Deep Tissue Therapy is a multi-disciplinary, holistic approach to treating musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, by finding and addressing the musculoskeletal misalignments that are causing or contributing to the dysfunction, rather than only treating the pain site. It is Deep Tissue Therapy from an Orthopedic approach, which Integrates the client’s consciousness & breath into the therapy to achieve the greatest possible release of muscular tension.
It is my belief that at least 90% of all healing comes from "letting go", physically, mentally, &/or emotionally, and that the mind, spirit, and body are not merely separate and attached to each other, but rather one mysteriously integrated whole. Science is only now beginning to understand the power of the mind to effect dramatic changes in the body. With IODT Therapy, the therapist verbally guides the client's breathing and consciousness to access the client's mental/emotional components while utilizing many of the most effective manual techniques, in helping client "let go" of their unconscious physical resistance, struggle, strain, stress and subsequent pain.
