Myoskeletal Alignment

The Myoskeletal Alignment program was developed as a tool to help relieve our nation’s neck/ back pain epidemic. By incorporating muscle-balancing techniques with joint-mobilization maneuvers, manual therapists learn to quickly identify and correct dysfunctional neurologically driven strain patterns before they become pain patterns.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Wellness services

I always walk out feeling pain free. I feel like I'm achieving a more balanced body. Clinton is very good at his job. No one else has done this much for me.
by Maria Belen on Jun 12
He always explains what is he doing or about to do: assessment, therapy and exercises. I arrived feeling pain from my neck down to my feet. When I left I could stretch further and my pain was gone. He is not an all cure because he models and tells you which exercises to perform daily to continue to feel better and to keep from feeling all achy and living with pain. It is much much better than taking medicine daily. I will continue to do the exercises so I don't live with aches and pain.

Clinton Merrifield is a great at helping resolve muscle pain and body aches , mobility and stability issues and he can help you to get strong. He understands the body movement patterns and can help you achieve your movement goals. After my first session, I was out of pain and feeling much better.

Clinton is amazing! I have never been to any type of therapy outside of the military. Continuous battle over my sciatic nerve. Military PCMs refer me to physical therapy which never resolves my pain. I go to Clinton once and I can walk without a limp and hunched back. Clinton cares about the person and is just amazing! Highly recommend!

I have gotten so much relief from pain only after the first sessions. I leave with no pain more flexible and feeling stronger. I rather spend my money coming for a session here than going to the chiropractor.

Clinton addressed all my concerns and by the end of our session I felt more mobile and pain free. He gave me exercises to do everyday and I am thankful I found him!

Clinton Merrifield has the knowledge, skill, and experience to improve your mobility and bring pain relief to body movements. His assessment techniques bring focus to the source of the problem and his extensive teaching and continuing education bring a wide array of solutions to address the problem. As a client for six years, I highly recommend Clinton Merrifield.

Not your everyday training! Because of a sedentary life style, these unique exercises are ideal for improving my whole body movements. Clinton tailored the training to my specific needs and worked with me assuring I correctly did the exercises. This was a great functional movement training session, and I'm excited about what comes next! Thanks Clinton!
