A Body Out of Balance
Advanced technology combined with a
holistic hands-on approach is the best of
both worlds for quick relief and lasting correction
Movement. Alignment. Posture.
Our MAPS™ protocol is the cornerstone
of long-term structural correction
A 360° approach to
transforming your health
Since our founding in 2004 by Dr. Jan Lefkowitz, we have devoted ourselves to going the extra mile for our patients.
We take more time to figure things out.
We use innovative technology to help identify the problem and to measure our results.
We don’t just hack away at the pain – we use our detective skills and search deep to figure out the cause.
We believe that posture is powerful and that movement is medicine and that spinal alignment is an incredibly overlooked cause of health problems.
Our proprietary approach assesses your Movement, Alignment and Posture. We call this your M.A.P. and we feel that it’s the foundation for good health. This M.A.P. will provide us with the clues as to what is causing your problem and how to best fix it long term so that it does not recur or relapse.
Created by Dr. Jan Lefkowitz, the MAPS Protocol was the culmination of a 20+ year career and a mission to fix his own shoulder and neck injuries. It’s based upon a realization that while incredibly powerful for pain relief, chiropractic care alone only addressed the alignment of the spine and body but not the posture. The missing piece was the system of nerves and muscles which regulates posture and stabilizes the body.
Without this part, pain relief was temporary and problems continued to recur.
By first learning the science behind this important body system and then figuring out how to correct it with chiropractic care, deep tissue massage work and a system of movement training exercises that a person can be taught to do on their own, the MAPS Protocol was born.
The MAPS Protocol is our “secret sauce” in all of our programs but we didn’t stop there. We saw the following repeating patterns in many people’s health issues:
These are the most common but nerve issues, immune system issues, digestive problems and dizziness were sometimes present as well.
Dr. Lefkowitz’s passion for discovering natural and safe “biohacks” led him to seek out an explanation for this constellation of symptoms as well as a comprehensive solution. He identified systemic (full body) inflammation as the key link to all of these symptoms.
As scientists already know, many chronic diseases in modern society such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and auto-immune diseases are also linked to inflammation. If we could find a way to proactively lower inflammation by addressing it from every angle at its root cause, instead of masking it with medication, we could have the maximum impact on people’s health.
In seeking to solve these core inflammation issues Dr. Lefkowitz identified three key hidden sources of inflammation:
1) Alignment and Posture
2) The Gut
The TMB Program is the first of its kind to offer natural biohacks* to improve all three of these causes in tandem, producing sustainable gains far surpassing other inflammation solutions.
Many people on the TMB program report more energy, thinking clearly, sleeping better, feeling calmer, losing weight, moving easier, fixing chronic injuries and pain and so much more. The depth of this program delivers your best quality of life, optimized health and proactively reduces your long-term risk of chronic disease.
