Advanced Manual Therapy

Olivier Pelletier, LMT, a Certified CORE Structural Integrative Therapist, founded CORE Kinetic, a unique Integrated Manual/Exercise Therapy program designed to bridge the gap between all Massage/Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Athletic Trainers, and all other healthcare professionals that specialize in eliminating chronic pain and sports injuries, and in the optimization of performance potential.

CORE Kinetic consists of CORE Kinetic Orthopedic (Medical Bodywork) for musculoskeletal disorders, CORE Kinetic Bodywork (full-body Myofascial Therapy) for injury prevention and relaxation, and CORE Kinetic Integration (Structural Integration), a 10-session protocol of manual therapy, reestablishing the natural alignment and structural integration of the body for vitality and well-being.

After traveling and training in 1999 at the Old Medicine Hospital in Chiang-Mai, Thailand, Olivier studied Myofascial Therapy and Structural Integration under George P. Kousaleos, founder of the CORE Institute in Tallahassee, Florida. He also studied Assessment Techniques and Orthopedic Massage under Dr. Ben Benjamin, founder of the Benjamin Institute in Cambridge MA. He is state licensed (DC Department Of Health), and is a member of the Associated Bodywork Massage Professionals (ABMP). As a dedicated and committed therapist, Olivier is a leader in establishing higher national standards of practice and wholeheartedly supports continued advanced training in therapeutic and educational strategies. He has had a lot of success with his work and has helped many people, from professional and recreational athletes wanting to improve their performance, to those looking for relaxation, pain relief and a return to normal function.
Olivier also has a black belt in Shotokan Karate. After becoming regional vice champion, was selected to compete in the 1993 French National Fighting Championships in Paris.

“I am a competitive fencer, nationally ranked, 70+ veteran age group. Repetitive stress
injuries are common. I have been working with Olivier many years and his system works
wonders. I only see him for injuries, so its not a continual treatment. A few weekly
sessions and hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder and leg strains are gone. I would not consider
going to anyone else. Thanks, Olivier, for everything you have done over the years!”

“Olivier’s work is both meticulous and effective. He has helped me to heal an old injury and restore grace and lightness to my bearing. I’m impressed and grateful. Everyone should see him!”
