Your Safety is Our Top Priority

  • For all upcoming scheduled in-person courses NAIOMT will be following the CDC, federal, state and local COVID-19 guidelines in regard to social distancing and hygiene.
  • All instructors and participants are required to wear masks throughout the course weekend in consideration of the safety of all course participants.
  • We realize that many, if not most, clinicians have received one or both shots of a COVID vaccine. However, until the CDC updates their guidance to allow for vaccinated participants to not wear masks, NAIOMT has decided to keep the mask mandate in place.

What Our Students Say

"Bill, Thank you for the truly amazing cohort put together this last year; you and Steve have been great motivators and challengers for my progression in this profession. I really like the approach of NAIOMT and how it makes the 'scary things' (i.e. cervical manipulations) safe and gives me confidence in performing them! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!"
