The Egoscue Institute — NCBTMB Approved CE Provider

Founded in 1998, the Egoscue Institute was initially created to 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.

The combination of postural therapy with other modalities—such as massage therapy, chiropractic, traditional physical therapy, and yoga—led to an increase in success for therapists in mitigating and eliminating chronic pain and in increasing functional mobility in clients.

The Egoscue Institute now offers certifications that allow those who complete our education to use The Method in their current practice, become a therapist in an Egoscue Clinic, or to own and operate a clinic.

Philosophy

The Egoscue Institute is dedicated to providing access and opportunity to anyone with a desire to learn The Egoscue Method of postural therapy.

Our Belief

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.

Program Curriculum

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.

What Is Postural Therapy?

Postural therapy is a method of restoring the original functional design of the body, alleviating pain and allowing clients to adopt an active, pain-free lifestyle. Clients with chronic pain have typically tried other solutions focused on treating symptoms—from traditional physical therapy and drugs to surgery and other modalities—with little sustained success. At the Egoscue Institute, it’s our job to help change their focus from treating the site of the pain to treating the source of the pain.

What makes us different?

We at the Egoscue Institute believe that the site of pain is rarely the source of pain—the symptom is the effect, not the cause. Rather than focusing on the cause, we focus on the body’s posture and its ability to heal itself.

The Egoscue Institute will teach you how to use our proprietary software, called e-Pete, to assess postural dysfunction and to select gentle exercises that will correct the dysfunction.
