Since my graduation from the manual osteopathic therapist program at MOCC, I have moved forward incredibly in my practice. My entire life has been changed from the experience of this past year. I feel more confident in my treatments and care of my clients and do my best to educate them on the why’s and what’s behind their pain, and how we will work together to restore their body’s innate ability to heal itself. ~Maureen D.
