What People Are Saying

“Michael Shapiro is awesome! He is extremely knowledgeable, caring, invested in his patients and exudes kindness and zen.  I am a trainer and an athlete and have worked with many body workers throughout my 20 year experience.  Michael’s attention to detail and the scope of his knowledge really stand out.  I also admire how much he is constantly learning and growing.  That is why I happily send any of my friends or students to this practice.  I know that they will be well taken care of and learn a lot about their body. Thank you Michael for your healing” Nerijus B.

Founder + Coach, Train P3

“IMMA is a fantastic resource for integrative healing. Michael has very positive energy and is an expert at what he does. As well he gives you the tools to continue rehabilitating yourself on your own. I suffered from severe tendon issues last year which Michael was able to treat with just a few techniques. It’s like magic!” Aimee D.

Professional Dancer

I’m so glad I found Michael to help work with me on my structure and alignment. As another health care professional, I found him incredibly knowledgable in explaining why, what to do to prevent, and exercises. I became more aware of my own movement and health, as he is able to utilize multiple therapies to help coax the body to where it needs to go. He is kind, compassionate, and very much understands all parts (e.g. mental, emotional, and physical) aspects of healing. Serena G.
