About The D'Ambrogio Institute

The D'Ambrogio Institute

Kerry D'Ambrogio, D.O.M., A.P., P.T., D.O.-M.T.P., is a physical therapist, osteopath and board certified acupuncture physician. Dr. D'Ambrogio is the author of Positional Release Therapy published by Mosby. His experience and research have been featured as articles in PT/OT magazines and he has been recognized as an industry leader on radio and television talk shows.

Dr. D'Ambrogio started lecturing in 1988 and has taught in over 20 countries worldwide. He is recognized throughout Canada, the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela, China, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, the Philippines, South Africa, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Norway, and Israel as an exceptional teacher of manual therapy. He is a certified instructor recognized by the International Alliance of Healthcare Educators (IAHE).

His integrative blend of both Eastern and Western medicine, prompted by an initial thorough whole body pre and post treatment evaluation (ARTS), is the key to unlocking perplexing pain issues for patients. This method surpasses the traditional tendency in Western medicine to merely treat the patient’s symptoms locally, at the site of pain, instead of searching for the root cause of their complaint.

The seminar series, at the D'Ambrogio Institute, reflects this core philosophy and was developed to train practitioners to perform the full body evaluation (ARTS) and, more importantly, to incorporate the most effective treatments strategies to obtain optimal results for the client. The D'Ambrogio Institute offers the following courses through IAHE:

  • Evaluation & Integration: Total Body Balancing
  • Joint Hypomobility: Joint Balancing
  • Protective Muscle Spasm: Muscle Balancing
  • Fascial Tension & Scar Tissue: Fascial Balancing
  • Fluid Stagnation & Swelling: Lymphatic Balancing
