 Integrative Manual Therapy, or IMT as it is called, is a health care process that encompasses a wide range of health care practices. It achieves health and healing by taking into account the diverse systems of the human body and addressing dysfunction. The therapy consists of a combination of functional and structural forms of rehabilitation that stem directly from the treatment of the musculoskeletal system.
The basic concept behind integrative manual therapy is that no part of the body functions independently, without being affected by its other parts. Therefore, integrative manual therapy treats the entire body as a whole and not just the area of pain and discomfort. Using this interconnectedness of multiple body systems, IMT therapists assist the body’s own innate intelligence to take corrective action.
During a typical IMT session, the therapist will first locate any problems in your musculoskeletal structure, organs or organ-systems by using a series of gentle tapping motions with his or her hands along your body. Once the problem areas have been identified, the therapist uses a variety of techniques in order to encourage the healing process.
IMT addresses rehabilitation in two categories - Structural rehabilitation and Functional rehabilitation. Structural rehabilitation improves structural integrity of the body. It addresses joint mobility, muscle tone, soft tissue flexibility, range of motion, and muscle control. Functional rehabilitation addresses balance, coordination, strength, endurance, hearing, vision, speech, smell, learning, and behavior.

What are its benefits?
During the course of integrative therapy, the therapist is able to address the imbalances in the body in a non-invasive way. This results in long lasting stabilizations within the body. It also allows the body to tap into its own self-healing capacity. Some of the common ailments that can greatly benefit from integrated manual therapy are back pain, neck pain, stiffness in joints, digestive problems, tendonitis, and headaches.
