In early 2007 Dr. Luna attended an intimate intense seminar put on by Dr. Pavel Kolar from Prague, Czech. Dr. Kolar was taught by Professor Karel Lewit
and the late Professors Vaclav Vojte and Vladimir Janda, the brilliant grandfathers of manual medicine. His teachings focus on a new method of intrinsic
locomotor system stabilization which has spawned a new manual approach to activate the intrinsic system and achieve exciting levels of improved function
in a remarkably brief period. Based upon the principles of developmental kinesiology, the neurophysiological aspects of the maturing locomotor system on
which the Prague school was established, these techniques are expanding the scope of clinical options in an exciting new direction. Dr. Luna is proud to
offer his best understandings and interpretations of Pavel's work and incorporate them into his other manual medicine offerings for his patients.
Dr. Luna’s practice revolves around normal functional body mechanics, focused functional rehabilitation and neuromuscular re-patterning. He also has a
special interest in Chronic Pain patients in which he tries to incorporate the Bio-Psycho-Social aspects of treatment with all his patients.
