Topic: Integrative Manual Therapy: An Innovative Approach for Treatment of Lyme Disease.
Speaker: Peggy Emro, M.A., P.T., I.M.T.C, Director of Healing Source Physical Therapy, Brewster and Chappaqua, NY.
The challenges that face patients with Lyme Disease are complex. Peggy will present a new model for addressing the complexity of Lyme treatment using Integrative Manual Therapy, a unique, hands on approach that treats all of the systems in the body affected by Lyme disease. Peggy will discuss how IMT effectively supports immune system function and share self-treatment tools that you can apply immediately to ease symptoms and support healing. As a physical therapist and certified IMT practitioner, Peggy offers a keen perspective on the complexity of Lyme disease and the paradigm shifting model of IMT.
