About Site Author

Stephen O’Dwyer, CNMT, has been helping individuals find significant and often permanent relief for chronic and recurrent musculoskeletal pain since 1990. After practicing in San Francisco for 10 years he returned to his college hometown, Burlington, Vermont, USA, to found Neuromuscular Therapy of Vermont where he's practiced since 2000.

Trained in a wide variety of therapies including Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue Bodywork, Somatic Movement Education, Craniosacral Therapy, and Active Isolated Stretching, he has spent many years developing an integrated technique and unique philosophy of pain relief.

He has served as an assistant instructor for the St. John Neuromuscular Therapy Seminars and as associate faculty at the Touchstone Healing Arts School of Massage in Burlington, Vermont. In addition to maintaining a private practice, Stephen teaches advanced technique classes for massage therapists and other health practitioners interested in increasing their clinical skill in treating chronic pain.

In 2004 he created Lower Back Pain Answers in an effort to fill in the information gap left by allopathic approaches to understanding and treating lower back pain. For the last several years he has been invited to speak about his work to the first-year medical students at the University of Vermont Medical School as part of their Complimentary and Alternative Medicine cirriculum.

Stephen is an avid alpine skier, triathlete, marathon runner, as well as yoga and meditation practitioner. He lives in Vermont with his lovely wife, Robin, Robin's awesome son, Tray, and their beloved Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, Danny.
