Provide Your Clients Lasting Relief from Pain

Achieving great results for clients suffering from chronic pain requires the massage therapist disrupt long-held myoskeletal imbalances and ‘reprogram’ appropriate alignment and function in the body. This requires manual therapy techniques integrated with home retraining exercises.

Without a thorough understanding of the body’s structure and function, as well as manual techniques and corrective exercises, relief with bodywork will only last a few days.

Dalton’s expert training programs cover the entire scope of what a manual therapist must know in order to provide the highest level of service to her clients. Most people living with chronic pain could be free of their discomfort if they only had the appropriate treatment. Dalton’s mission is to empower massage therapists to provide their clients total freedom from their pain.

Establish a Lucrative, Busy Practice

What would life be like if you could work as much or as little as you want? What if you could charge what you’re worth, knowing you provide the highest quality manual therapy possible?

When clients find a bodyworker who knows how to effectively treat the toughest pain, they’ll come back again and again. What’s more, they’ll rave about you to everyone they know. When our students take what they learn through us and apply smart business practices, they’re able to raise their session rates while maintaining a full schedule. These expert professionals have earned it!
