A Unit of Indian Manual Therapy Trust

Dear Therapist,

We are happy to share with you that FIMT has completed its 4th programme in “Demo of Manual Technique for Head-ache” at Bangalore.

In retrospect to the last programme, we are quite satisfied accomplishing our aims and objectives.

At FIMT it is always our endeavor to provide advanced training in the specialty area of orthopaedic manual therapy for physiotherapist. We have introduced this program for our therapist to help them to widen their knowledge and finesse their manual handling skills. These endeavors have been greatly appreciated by our entire therapist and we are working towards bringing many more such programs in future. We thank with immense gratitude to all those who have directly and indirectly helped us.

One such program we are starting on this month. To enable us to deliver the same if not better quality, we earnestly seek the support of our therapists. The program will be commencing for 7 days, Sunday only. For that program orientation hour will be there on Sunday Aug 17th, 5 pm at C.Y.C.D Seminar Hall, Oakalipuram (Near Majestic Railway Station), Bangalore.

FIMT endeavors to promote an electric “integrated “ approach in its training and philosophy and to promulgate the importance of clinical reasoning skills and manual therapy skills.
