Corrective Muscle Therapy

Corrective Muscle Therapy (CMT) is a series of passive and active directed movements to help alleviate discomfort and provide body awareness for improved mobility. It is a trademarked holistic practice of Frank Pileggi PhD, RHP and is not a designated form of massage therapy and/or bodywork. It is a holistic healthcare practice that is proving highly effective for many Virtua patients with challenges of limited mobility and discomfort due to soft tissue restriction.

Frank Pileggi, PhD, RHP, is the Dean of Lourdes Institute of Wholistic Studies, practitioner of Corrective Muscle Therapy and Board Certified Holistic Healthcare Practitioner.  By offering Corrective Muscle Therapy, Dr. Pileggi has become a referral point of choice for many of the region’s major orthopedic centers, athletic trainers and primary physicians when patients need release of restricted musculoskeletal soft tissue.  CMT integrates aspects of Dr. Pileggi’s life long education and experiences within Holistic Modalities to help patients lesson these limitations.

Conditions commonly addressed through CMT include sprains, strains, muscle spasms (caused by overuse or chronic tension), arthritis, rheumatic conditions, and postsurgical tightness or adhesions. For example, the therapy can serve to break up scar tissue at the site of a joint replacement. Professional and amateur athletes wanting to speed recovery and/or injury prevention, people suffering from repetitive strains and sprains, and people dealing with chronic discomfort and stiffness have all demonstrated improvement with CMT.

Sessions typically begin gently and may progress deeply with passive and active movement and stretches. DR. Pileggi  completed his master’s degree in holistic health sciences at the University of Vermont and also earned his doctorate in holistic arts and practices ; He focuses sessions on a specific physical function or target area. The ability of CMT to help effect changes in muscles, muscle groups, and cartilaginous tissue in proximity to circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems often results in dramatic relief for patients who are dealing with new or longstanding limitations.
