In today’s competitive environment, it is important for the Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy clinicians to demonstrate competency in their areas of clinical interest and expertise.

The Mastery Certification in Manual Therapy (MCMT®) is a continuing education training program that offers expanded study and clinical practicum in the most important, most effective, and most widely used areas of Manual Therapy.

Our program offers a unique comprehensive approach that combines over 56 years of cumulative clinical experience of Dr. Kostopoulos & Dr. Rizopoulos, founders of Hands-On Seminars, with many of the teachings of leading manual therapy doctors such as: Travell & Simons, Maitland & Cyriax, Butler, Elvey & Shacklock, Janda, Lewit, Chaitow, Kaltenborn, Paris & others. This program offers the clinician a series of comprehensive evidence-based training seminars with immediate clinical applications that enable the clinician to demonstrate competency and become an expert in manual therapy.

“At Hands-On Seminars we believe that any one manual therapy approach, and any one school of thought does not provide a cure for all patients’ problems. We believe that successful clinical outcomes are the result of a comprehensive, eclectic manual therapy approach. You as a therapist, need to master a number of manual therapy approaches so that you can select the proper combination for your specific patient. With Hands-On Seminars MCMT® program you get just that! We have selected for you – from a variety of physical therapy approaches – the most effective and efficient, evidence-based manual therapy techniques that when cumulative with proper assessments can lead to successful treatment outcomes. By the end of the program you will have a toolbox full of manual therapy approaches that you can use to treat your patients.”  Dr. Dimitrios Kostopoulos & Dr. Konstantine Rizopoulos,  Founders of Hands-On Seminars.
