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 a motor vehicle accident required him to go through months of treatment. 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 twofold: “Traditional massage is the best choice for stress relief. 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 Therapies, Michael sees many connections between his work and that of his colleagues: “Patients 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 20 years of experience integrating manual therapy and massage techniques with other practitioners 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.”
The Center for Integrative Therapies provides Michael with a unique place to practice his multifaceted brand of therapy. 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.
