Dwayne Manary

Dwayne Manary, DC, DMO – Instructor

I love practicing as a Manual Osteopathic Therapist because of the whole body fluid movement approach to form and function. My personal philosophy is “Movement Is Life” and my professional purpose is to help my clients to “Do More Of What They Love To Do”.
After spending five years at chiropractic college in Dallas Texas, my wife and I moved to Melbourne Australia where I practiced for ten years. Once our children got to school age, we moved back to Red Deer where we could be close to extended family through their school years.
I am currently a co-owner of Black Rock Therapies in Red Deer Alberta where I practice as a Manual Osteopathic Therapist.
