Gadi Kaufman is a Certified Neuromuscular Therapist specializing in the Strain Counterstrain technique, located in Santa Monica, California.

Gadi has over 30 years experience in the practice of manual therapy as a CNMT, CSCS, and CAK.

He has a degree in physical education, certification in neuromuscular therapy, applied kinesiology and Strain Counterstrain Technique. His extensive knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the body’s biomechanics has enabled him to create a unique combination of manual techniques. These techniques, based on physics and physiology, address the body as one functional unit. This allows him to address the causes of the pain by correcting the muscular imbalance that leads to chronic stress and vulnerability.

These techniques include the synthesis of Strain Counterstrain, myofascial release, muscle energy technique, Mulligan joint mobilization, as well as exercises. First the nervous system, then the muscular system, and finally the joint system will be addressed.

Classically Trained
