Howard Nemerov, LMT, MTI, NCBTMB and licensed continuing educator, is the developer of the Nemerov Method. He has written two books about the work, and his articles have been featured in professional journals and Triathlete Magazine. 
He began as a software developer, specializing in debugging defective programs. During this time, he was introduced to therapeutic bodywork at a local massage school. Something about it clicked and he decided this would be his ticket out of the corporate world. While the technical challenge of software was interesting, the desire to develop his own business became overpowering, and he left on a severance package to build his budding practice into a full-time profession.
Building on the teachings of his early mentors, and studying Motor Control Theory and standard Physical Therapy principles, he began to develop the Nemerov Method.
Howard has taught the Method and maintained a clinical practice for 25 years, specializing in injury rehabilitation and athletic performance enhancement. His own athletic background enables him to serve as a valuable resource in these areas. He has many years of experience in Personal Injury and Workmen’s Compensation claims, providing RSI treatment for one of the largest high tech firms in the SF Bay Area.
His commitment to excellence has led to outstanding results, averaging 3-4 treatments per client case, with a better-than 90% success rate in resolving clients’ suffering.
Recent clinical research includes protocols for resolving a host of work-related injuries, as well as TMJ, functional scoliosis, dysfunctional gait mechanics, and reintegrating women’s pelvic and spinal function post-partum.
Training is available for qualified professionals. For more on the Nemerov”

Ortho-Bionomy- Susan Schoeller

Ruth Bucher was born and raised in Switzerland. A first visit to the USA as an exchange student left her with the dream of coming back. In 1991 she realized this dream and came to Texas. She has been a naturalized
U.S. citizen since 2004. The desire for a career change led Ruth to the massage therapy profession, and in May 1995, she graduated from Hands-on Therapy School of Massage in Garland, TX. There she was first introduced to
the TRAGER® Approach in a continuing education class in 1997. In 2000 she earned her certification as TRAGER® Practitioner. Her passion for the work motivated her to become a massage therapy continuing education
provider in TX in 2009, and an independent TRAGER Introductory Workshop leader in 2014.
Ruth is consistently continuing her education and advancing her knowledge in the massage therapy and bodywork field, specializing in the TRAGER® Approach. Ruth's ultimate goal as a massage therapist and bodywork practitioner is to assist her clients in
achieving optimal health, including relief from stress and pain by natural means, and to provide her clients with the best possible care. Part of this goal is to introduce the TRAGER® Approach to more clients, and extend knowledge about this wonderful BodyWork / Movement Education Modality to massage therapists and healthcare practitioners in the DFW area and beyond.
