Social media is alive with commercials and excitement for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” that arrives in theaters today December 18, 2015. What does this have to do with Manual therapy or NAIOMT?
"A long time ago… in a galaxy far, far away”(called Portland), I was a ‘young’ 35 year old PT who attended my first NAIOMT class. Little did I know that the instructors of this class were Jedi Masters in the physical therapy world.

NAIOMT’s faculty all displayed a ‘knowing’ or expertise including a strong work ethic, integrity and honesty that I could respect.

It took no time to determine that I wanted to be trained up to become a Jedi adviser.
