Mary Massery, PT, DPT, DScMary Massery’s publications and interests focus on linking motor behaviors to breathing and/or postural mechanics in both pediatric and adult patient populations. Dr. Massery has been invited to give over 1,000 professional presentations in all 50 US states and 18 countries worldwide.
Mary’s courses are typically booked 12 – 24 months in advance, and include both weekend and weekday options. All of Mary’s courses include pediatrics, as her practice is 80% pediatric, but each course host has the option of broadening the course to include adults.
Mary Massery’s physical therapy lab courses are 3 to 4 days long and include her introductory breathing & postural control course: “If You Can’t Breathe, You Can’t Function,” and the follow-up course: “Advanced Pulmonary Course.” Mary’s newest course is entitled “I Survived, Now What?”, and focuses on the musculoskeletal consequences of surviving complex pediatric problems.
Mary also presents a course on “Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF): Improving Trunk Function Through Distal and Proximal Input.”
