What has brought you to this work?

In the 90s I worked as an aerobic instructor/personal trainer, became a pilates trainer & continued on to work with rehabilitation and therapeutic exercises. In 2008, I met Dr. Sharron Weisellfish-Giammatteo & Dr. Tom Giammatteo at a Toronto fitness conference. In the mid 1960's Sharron began the development of IMT using energy medicine, osteopathy & physical therapy. Tom joined bringing nutrition, homeopathy, chiropractic & Chinese medicine influence to the body of work Sharron had created. Together, they presented a philosophy to healing I had never seen before. It was phenomenal!

Their presentation inspired me to become a Certified Integrative Manual Therapist, graduating from the Connecticut School of Integrative Manual Therapy, and I became the only IMT therapist in Niagara and the GTA.

I now hold diplomas/certificates in muscle energy, neural tissue tension, manual pattern recognition, mobility templates, myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, lung management, physical functional medicine, pediatrics, concussion/stroke/whiplash therapies, men's & women's health, advanced sacral biomechanics, toe walking therapy, double crush syndrome, auto-immune treatment and more!


What services do you offer and how do they assist others?

Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT)
IMT is a hands on practice; people lie down (or an alternative position for them), fully clothed and gentle pressures are applied in specific areas, as well as dowsing, connecting, and releasing blockages to their healing.

I am a facilitator & educator in helping people to relieve all types of pain, disability & dysfunction whether it be on a physical, mental, emotional &/or spiritual plane.

I also educate the client to inspire further work & teach them, through homework, to treat themselves.


What philosophy do you live by?

I believe that we all have much more power than we realize.

You are truly capable of the (seemingly) impossible & your time is now!


Testimonials

For two years my 11 year old son has suffered from neck, lower back and jaw pain. He also had frequent headaches and pains in his eyes that often lasted for days.
He has Convergence Insufficiency, TMJ and a deviated septum which has contributed somewhat to these symptoms. We had visited many doctors and specialists with little relief. It was suggested that IMT might be beneficial.
As a parent, from the very first meeting with Maura it was obvious that she was very passionate about her job and willing to take on any challenge. She explains things well and is very generous with her time and knowledge. Her clear assessment helped me understand what was causing my sons conditions.
Over the past four months, her approach has been gentle, creative and very responsive to my son's needs. Currently, he has little to no pain in his neck, back or jaw. His headaches and eye pains occur less frequently and when they do occur they are brief and much less painful. Also, she has given him the tools to maintain himself between visits which has been very beneficial. Working with Maura has had a profound impact on his conditions for which I am truly grateful. My son and extended family has noticed significant improvement. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

I met Maura over a year ago now at our Holistic Expo. I enjoyed the short session that I had with her at the event and decided to meet with her to receive a full IMT treatment. Over the past year I have met with her almost every week and her IMT treatments along with her nutritional and fitness guidance have helped me more in a year than I have had in the past 5 in terms of feeling stronger and with pain reduction. I have also been able to reduce the amount of thyroid medication that I take twice since working with Maura, when for over 10 years it had only increased. We still have a ways to go but I am grateful that I have met her and I always feel better after our sessions. Thank you Maura I highly recommend you!

I first met Maura in my husband's exercise class for people with Parkinson's Disease. When I saw how skilled and caring she was, I asked for a few Integrative Manual Therapy sessions to help relieve some long-term pain in my lower back, hip and knee.
Maura has an extraordinary gift of discerning what area of the body needs treatment and how to bring healing to it. My stiff neck was addressed and I can now easily look over my shoulder to check traffic while driving. She designed a set of exercises for me to do at home to improve my health. She merely "tweaked" my diet, and I lost eleven pounds in two months! My blood pressure has dropped so much that my family physician has lowered my dose of meds. She fitted me for orthotics, which is helping reduce the pain in my knees. She treated me for PTSD after reading my life story of an abusive and painful childhood. My "inner child" always felt safe with her.
I feel more energetic, sleep soundly and feel more self-confident after these treatments. I received more than I bargained for; I would highly recommend her services!
