Why Mana?

Our practice provides outstanding service to our patients because of our dedication to the three underlying principles of professionalism, quality and results.

PROFESSIONALISM

By combining experience, expertise and energy, each patient receives the close personal attention they need from all of our staff.

All Appointment times start as scheduled. We value your time.

QUALITY

Quality is the standard of something as measured against other things.

We accomplish a higher standard by requiring all therapists to be trained in or training for an advanced manual therapy certification.

We feel it is important for patients to know they are being treated by professionals who possess exceptional clinical skills.

RESULTS

At the end of the day, what really matters is the success of reaching your goals.

We use technology to analyze our outcomes data and patient satisfaction to continuously improve our ability to reach our patients’ goals in the shortest amount of time.
