What Is Our Movement?
MAM Mission Statement: To spread the positive by-products of coaching and movement as far as we can.
Every human should move well and move often. Our mission is to help as many people do that as possible.
If you ask us at Movement As Medicine what our title is we won’t respond with “Massage Therapist,” “Physical Therapist” or “Trainer”. We don’t believe that the traditional titles can accurately encompass what we do.
We vision ourselves as “Movement Therapists.”
We pride ourselves on “treating the person” not “treating the pain.” No human body is exactly the same, so for that reason, no painful condition should be approached in the same manner. We take a unique, personalized approach to each individual who walks through our door.
Life should be lived in motion. We’re here to help you move more, move better and keep doing the things you love to do.
“Motion is life” – Hippocrates, Greek physician, 460-377 BC
