Become a Therapist
The Egoscue Institute has been certifying practitioners in the fundamentals of The Egoscue Method for over 20 years, with a goal of preparing students for a career as an Egoscue Method therapist in one of our franchise clinics, as an affiliate, or as a franchise clinic owner. The Egoscue certifications teach health practitioners the value of postural therapy in treating people with chronic pain and immobility due to diminished function, and to help health care professionals improve their ability to help their clients by educating them on the importance of postural integrity.
The combination of postural therapy with other modalities—such as massage therapy, chiropractic, traditional physical therapy, and yoga—has led to an increase in success for therapists in mitigating and eliminating chronic pain and in increasing functional mobility in clients.
We offer three levels of online certification and in-person practical training to fit the needs of practitioners at any level. Our certification programs start with the foundation and principles of The Egoscue Method, anatomy and biomechanical understanding. We also offer continuing education and ongoing therapy training to continue to develop therapists and advance their knowledge and understanding.
Chronic pain and bodily dysfunction is often caused by the body being out of alignment. Our therapy gives the client the opportunity to put their body back in balance, eliminating the dysfunction and allowing the body to heal itself naturally.
The Postural Alignment Specialist certification is an accessible and rigorous 3 to 6 month course that will change the way practitioners look at the human body. Our program is designed to help students grow their skills so they have more to offer clients and can expand their business opportunities. The Institute provides advice on how best to integrate The Egoscue Method® into an existing therapy practice by connecting you with other health professionals and providing a hands-on practical application of postural therapy to a variety of clients.
