Structural Energetic Therapy® is a maximum rehabilitation modality for acute and chronic pain and dysfunction. It is the integration of the Cranial/Structural techniques with specialized deep tissue protocols developed by Don McCann. Don continues to expand the scope of Structural Energetic Therapy® techniques and applications to further enhance and heighten the level of healing of the body, as well as for children and adults with special needs. Structural Energetic Therapy® will always be a modality that is continually evolving to meet the needs of humanity – mind, body and spirit.

What sets Structural Energetic Therapy® apart from other modalities? The integration of:

Cranial/Structural Releases to initiate the unwinding of the structure out of the core distortion into long lasting balance providing structural support! (No other modality uses or teaches these techniques – this is NOT craniosacral)

Specialized Myofascial Soft Tissue Protocols to release myofascial holding patterns, scar tissue and adhesions that maintain distortions causing pain and dysfunction!

Specialized Energetic Healing Techniques to release energetic and emotional blockages that create pain, distortions and dysfunction!
