"Safe and efficient manual therapy assessments and interventions based on sound clinical reasoning, current evidence, and anatomy and physiology are taught in a comfortable setting with time for hands-on learning and feedback."

Watch NAIOMT teaching faculty Michael Lucido demonstrate the examination and treatment of a hypertonic psoas major muscle affecting hip motion. This technique is taught in NAIOMT’s courses C-611 Lumbopelvic Spine II and C-705 Advanced Lower Quadrant Integration.
The next course in Annville, PA is C-705A "Hybrid" Adv. Lower Quadrant Integration Part A, which will be taught online and at Lebanon Valley College on August 25 - October 5, 2021.
NAIOMT has made the decision to move all courses online for the remainder of 2020 and the period January to March 2021. Please note, this is not an irrevocable decision; we'll review the situation in mid-January. If things are better then, we'll be more than willing to make changes. However, at this point, it is critical that we provide our students, faculty, and course sites with certainty, and this decision allows us to achieve that in the safest manner possible, while also not compromising our effectiveness in the classroom.
Courses can be taken in any order. Follow links for course details and to register:
