Road to CFMT

Road to CFMT by Karen Church PT, celebrating 50 and CFMT (Certified Functional Manual Therapist).

Following two years of rigorous study and eight months of commuting to Steamboat Springs, I became certified in Functional Manual Therapy™  This certification is a distinguished honor held by less than three hundred physical therapists nationally. Functional Manual Therapy™ integrates soft tissue and joint mobilization, neuromuscular re-education and motor control training. Institute of Physical Art (IPA), Steamboat Springs, CO.

Road to CFMT  is a tribute to my Mentors, Institute of Physical Art (IPA). From Steamboat Springs to Chico, New York, Denver, Des Moines, Portland, Los Angeles and Atlanta. 2012-14. Music by Canadian artist Bruce Cockburn  and his Album “Slice O Life” accompanied me on airplanes and road trips. So turn the volume up to appreciate the chilling mood this instrumental piece conveys. The photo of Bruce Cockburn at the Wheeler in Aspen, CO, 2016. The End of All Rivers, Slice O Life—Live Solo.
