Combined Hands Manual Therapy:

The basis of treatment services at our practice draws from dozens of practitioners, mentors, faculty, and clinical researchers. Since 2008, an amalgamation of constructs has formed the foundation of what we collectively call Bio-Integrative Therapy (BIT) ©. Most recently, 2018, our practice has expanded into an additional practice we refer to as Bio-Energetic Therapy (BET). Together BIT and BET make up the foundation of Berkshire County’s only dual practitioner treatment team.
This new approach is called the Combined Hands Method.
