Michael’s Integrative Care Mastery course gives you a lifetime’s knowledge about the massage-chiropractic connection. I’ve had the good fortune of learning much of the material directly from him, and I’m excited other massage therapists can learn it in the home study course.

It’s made so much difference in the way I practice having doctor Michael’s knowledge of massage and chiropractic explained so well. I can’t imagine doing massage without having this clear understanding how spinal, soft tissue and nerve work is integrated with what I do.

I’ve practiced chiropractic and owned clinics, employing over thirty massage therapists, and now recommend Doctor Koplen’s course to MT’s who want to upgrade their educational knowledge about what chiropractic and massage each offer, how the two professions work together, and learn the professional way to provide integrated treatment on referred patients.

I have practiced massage in clinic with Dr. Michael for years. He’s most knowledgeable person I know in understanding massage and chiropractic relationship and he honors both fully. The information in his course explains what’s important to know. It gives you more than you find anywhere about how to work complementary with massage and the spine and nervous system. It will boost your knowledge, success and way you practice.

Very beneficial, I enjoyed learning how all this fits together so nicely. I would recommend it, it’s valuable in aiding us in organizing thoughts and procedures in an orderly fashion.
~Eric M.

Great! I felt really good spending the money on this – money well spent – it was very worth my time. This has been a great learning experience. I feel that it should be almost mandatory. I was feeling very deficient but now feel 100% better.
~Bridget M.

You are an excellent teacher Dr. Michael. Your clarifications helped exponentially.
~Janis Payton, LMT, NCTMB

I’ve practiced for over twenty years in a multi-disciplined clinic with DC’s and massage therapists. Michael’s guidance and training has helped us practice together in a complementary manner. His work with MT’s paved bridges allowing us to all work compatibly and provide patients the best integrated healthcare. His new course which I’ve read through captures important information and procedures every MT should know to practice effectively in a clinical setting. 
~Adam White, L.Ac., Dipl.Ac, CEO, Healthcare Medicine Institute

I managed and practiced massage at a premier hot tub and massage facility in Santa Cruz for nearly three decades where our massage therapists and Michael shared countless mutual referrals. Michael has a deep love and experience with massage and bridged many gaps for us by explaining chiropractic principles and how they are mutually complementary with massage. The deep understanding of massage and chiropractic that he shares changed the way myself and other MT’s practice. It gave us a sense of heightened professionalism and credibility, and our clients knew it and it greatly increased them referring others to us. I enjoy the success that mutually referring clients and patients gives me. I strongly encourage every massage therapist to not miss out on understanding and enjoying this. 
~Graydon Ramey, MT

This experience has helped me see the great value of a strong relationship between DC’s and MT’s for the benefit of the client for full release work from the spine out distally in the body to address everything fully. Great stuff. Should be a good blend for both the DC and MT, but most importantly, a good blend for the clients/patients. Very nice.

As a school owner I have a Chiropractor and an acupuncturist teaching at my school. What, if anything at all are you doing to help advance the massage therapy profession? I constantly continue with my education and interact with other medical professionals as often as I can!!!
–Michael McGillicuddy, Owner, Central Florida School of Massage

The University I work for has transitioned over the past decade from it's start as a College of Chiropractic, to include now the College of health sciences (Massage Therapy, Rad tech, Diagnostic Sonograpy, Occupational therapy Asst.) and the College of Business as well. I have always believed that Massage and Chiropractic are like peanut butter and jelly. I see first hand the benefits obtained from the integrative approach. Many of our grads will work in chiro or integrative medicine environments , thus our training leans toward the therapeutic/medical massage concept. Educated hands .. when combined with a DC's ability to detect nerve dysfunction and correct subluxations are an unbeatable 1, 2 knockout punch to pain.
~Greg May

I started having medical doctors calling and asking who I was. My business grew over night from doctor and Chiro referrals. Give the client the care they need, and respect in the community for who you are as a practitioner will grow. It isn't about me, it is about my clients’ health and the modality that will help them.
~Christian Hewlett, MT

“Yes , yes, yes! I work in a Chiropractic office and pick the brain of our Doc many times. I love to soak up any bits of knowledge from other practitioners and even other MT’s! Sometimes there is a missing link and someone else could give you some great tips or tricks!”
~Sara Jones

“I am friends with, and refer personally to some of the most amazing Physicians, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Osteopaths, Podiatrists, Athletic Trainers, etc., in the medical industry. In return they share with me the missing link that is found with challenging clients, in cases where I did not have a solution. In other words they teach me their strengths to make me a better educator.
With that said, I encourage massage therapists to seek out, and work with those top manual therapists.
