Intensive Programs

"I am so grateful for these intensives to blend with the clients, therapists, and space to facilitate the client's inner healing process. It is such an honor."

J. Roberts, CST-D

For Our Clients

"This world brings many opportunities. With these many opportunities comes chaos, stress and no time for self-healing. The Upledger Institute Clinic is an opportunity where self-healing is evident; many health modalities and programs to choose from."

C. Murphy, Client

Our staff is guided by Dr. Upledger's philosophy that each person has the ability to affect his or her own health. Once the potential to help oneself is recognized and understood, the individual can actively participate in the health improvement process.

The Upledger Institute Clinic is a fully integrative, outpatient, healthcare facility. Whether you are interested in a relaxing "therapeutic vacation" in beautiful South Florida, or a comprehensive therapeutic experience, the staff at the Upledger Institute Clinic and your primary therapist will guide your experience from beginning to end.
