Our Practitioners

Cory Scopel

Manual Osteopathic Practitioner (DOMP), Advanced Movement Therapist (AMT)


Cory has been a healthcare practitioner for 13 years and is a Manual Osteopathic Practitioner. He has taken courses in advanced visceral manipulation, advanced movement therapy & infant cranial-sacral to name a few.


Taking a full body approach to healing, Cory focuses on visceral manipulation, cranial-sacral therapy & remedial exercise. This approach helps by taking tensions off of the spine and the rest of the body, allowing the body's self healing mechanisms to function properly, helping both acute and chronic pain.


Cory works as a preceptor for different universities, so he may have a student shadowing him. Please call or email us if you are not comfortable having a student in the room during your treatment.


When he isn't working or studying, he enjoys staying active with his wife & son. Fishing, Mountain biking, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, reading, playing numerous sports and working out are some of the activities Cory does to stay in shape.
