Osteopathic Manual Therapy (OMT) is a holistic natural healing art associated with a scientific study of human anatomy and physiology. OMT offers an alternative to those suffering from pain and illness within the current healthcare system. Many somatic dysfunctions arise from neuromusculoskeletal disorders. The structural problems of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and internal organs affect the blood and lymphatic circulation as well as nervous impulses. We palpate and detect the cause behind the problem. Abnormal function is expressed locally or distantly from another part of the body.

 

Gentle touch and comfortable positioning relaxes the patient and releases the soft tissue while aligning the bones. Notably, chronic pain arises from the Golgi tendon where the neuro-transmitters exist between bone and muscle. Gentle holding in the direction of ease unwinds the knotted tendon. Osteopathic manipulative techniques allow the body to heal itself. The healing effects are lasting because the improved tissue relationships help the person regain normal function to the best of one’s body’s ability.

Osteopathic manipulation is not readily available for many people because an Osteopath is a conventional physician in the U.S.. Many of them don’t have the time for manipulation. We are non-physician Osteopaths who had full training in Osteopathy in Japan and have continued each area of advanced training in the U.S. and other countries by notable Osteopathic doctors. We are proud to be able to offer this wonderful manual therapy and help people who need the most in the U.S. easily and reasonably.

Our clients range from persons with chronic pain to those with brain disorders. We pay close and loving attention to each client’s unique problem. Enjoy the comforting hands filled with bio-healing energy integrating your physical, mind, and spirit for the total well-being of an individual.

I’ve been seeing Mari for over five months now after suffering from lower back pain and sciatica for nearly six months. By the time I saw Mari for the first time on the recommendation of another friend, I was desperate from non-stop intense nerve pain caused by disc extrusion. Mari’s treatment approaches using osteopathy and cranio-sacral techniques were gentle and soothing, but very effective. Now, I am pain free and feel like I’ve got my life back again. And it is such a great feeling to know that I don’t have any pain when I wake up in the morning until I go to bed at night. I highly recommend Mari for anyone who has lower back pain and severe sciatica.
