Integrated Manual Therapy (IMT)
Relieve Blockages in the Body
What is Integrated Manual Therapy?
How Can We Help?
Integrative Manual Therapy is based on the assumption that most health problems (whether minor or chronic) come down to blockages and other dysfunction that prevent the body from self-healing. IMT uses a unique set of non-invasive techniques, approaches, and methodologies that work from within the body to find and treat the root cause of pain, dysfunction, disease and disability.
By addressing the body as a whole and not focusing on just one system (eg circulatory, nervous, autonomic nervous, lymphatic and endocrine), IMT allows the practitioner to locate the source of pain and disability and not just the symptom, they can then re-establish the body’s internal flow and innate healing abilities.
IMT takes a holistic approach to health and is based on the concept that all elements (muscles, bones, organs, blood vessels, nerves and membranes, etc.) are mutually dependent on each other, and that the body functions as a single unit incorporating all individual systems. For example, the physical state of the colon affects the rest of the digestive system and, if that is not working properly, other systems of the body such as the musculoskeletal system will be affected. IMT offers techniques to support the body in restoring the structural integrity of every individual element.
IMT is based on four fundamental premises:
- The structural condition of an element of the body determines how well the element performs its function. Only if an element is structurally sound can it perform its function correctly.
- All systems of the body alter their function to the extent necessary to protect the body by maintaining a normal operating condition.
- The resolution of pain, dysfunction, disease and disability can only be achieved by identifying and resolving the primary cause, not by treatment of the associated symptoms.
- The body has an inherent ability to heal itself, if properly supported.

How does IMT work?
The IMT diagnostic and treatment techniques are based on the evaluation of the biological rhythms of the body. From a diagnostic standpoint, IMT functions similarly to the sensing of the heart’s pulse. An assessment of the client is made by hand, using for example the heart beat, in order to find the body’s circadian biologic rhythms and movements.
This assessment takes into account the multiple, complex systems of the entire body in order to gain a full picture of the client’s state of health and wellbeing. The IMT practitioner then introduces new concepts to the body, giving it an opportunity to heal itself.
