Interview with Michael Grego
Michael Grego, LMT, Massage, Manual and Neuromuscular therapist at The Center for Integrative Practices, was inspired to help people with chronic pain after his own accident required him to go through multiple rounds of therapy. Michael’s empathy gives him a unique approach to therapy and he understands that a patient needs more than a massage to get back on their feet. His practice is two-fold: “Traditional massage is the best choice for stress relief or to get more from your Chiropractic adjustment. For those that have pain, structural or functional problems and want results as fast as possible, patients have the option of an Integrative Manual Therapy approach.” At The Center for Integrative Practices, Michael sees many connections between his work and that of his colleagues: “Patients that are uncomfortable with chiropractic adjustments have the option of orthopedic massage and manual therapy techniques to treat structural problems. Relaxation massage and craniosacral therapy have been found to be very helpful to people having cognitive, emotional, and sleep issues.” Michael has 13 years of experience integrating manual therapy and massage techniques with acupuncture, chiropractic, and physical therapy to enhance the patient’s results. When asked what the importance of a holistic approach to healing is, Michael says, “A holistic approach considers that there is often more than one part to a problem that needs to be addressed and that the source of a problem may not be what it seems. Holism is more thorough.”
The Center for Integrative Practices Center provides Michael with a unique place to practice his multifaceted brand of therapy. He says it offers patients the option of having their concerns addressed by practitioners working together to help patients achieve their goals. It is truly a one-stop-shop for holistic services.
