Pain Specialist Featured in PBS Documentary: “I want people to know there is a gentle and safe alternative to help the body heal.”

Andy Steigmeier

In March, Andy Steigmeier co-owner of The Center for Health and Healing in Mount Kisco, will be highlighted in the PBS documentary “Survival Guide to Pain Free Living,” with Peggy Cappy.

“It’s a great honor to be a part of this documentary,” he says. “I hope it inspires many to take their first steps in overcoming chronic pain conditions, especially since our nation is gripped in such a tragic opioid epidemic.”

Steigmeier’s approach is a whole-body philosophy called Integrated Positional Therapy. “IPT recognizes that most adverse neuromuscular conditions are the result of muscular-skeletal imbalances that pull the body out of proper alignment, causing pain,” he says. “I want people to know there is a gentle and safe alternative to help the body heal.”

Steigmeier has treated thousands of people with chronic pain. In “Survival Guide to Pain Free Living,” the Marine Corps veteran shares his own story of pain and how IPT has helped. “I consider myself very lucky to be able to provide this therapy to my clients. I can certainly empathize, having personally experienced surgeries and lots of pain,” he says.

He also teaches IPT with his mentor, Lee Albert, at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

IPT has been successfully used to address many neuromuscular conditions, often when other approaches have failed, he says. “We are creating a ripple effect of healing without drugs or surgery. Positional Therapy is an alternative and also an effective complement to traditional western methods. People are getting better. It’s simple, and it works.”
