The Integrative Movement System™ (IMS) was developed by Dr. Evan Osar, Chiropractic Physician, author and speaker and Jenice Mattek, Licensed Massage Therapist, author, and speaker.
The duo developed the IMS because early in their careers they couldn’t find a reliable and consistent strategy for training real-world folks: the Active Aging (baby boomer and seniors), clients with an extensive medical history, and those individuals coming out of rehab and still experiencing chronic tightness, weakness, and inability to perform at the level they wanted.
The IMS is based upon the principles that guide the development of optimal posture and movement. It is a three-phase process:
This process empowers the IMS professional to assist clients to progress towards effectively and safely accomplishing their health and fitness goals.
The IMS has successfully helped thousands of individuals reach their health and fitness goals and enabled professionals to differentiate themselves in the industry.
This course can be taken as a stand-alone course or as part of the comprehensive Integrative Movement Specialist Certification.
