Arik Gohl LMP, MMLT, Creator of MLT

Arik Warren Gohl has been a clinical manual therapist since 1999. In the years since graduating, he has developed numerous clinical practices and curriculums for Physical Therapists, Massage Therapists, and Chiropractors.

In the past 12 years, Arik has become well known for creating a new type of treatment called Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT) and has been endorsed by some of the most respected researchers and doctors in the world, including Dr. Moshe Solomonow PhD.

In his time as a therapist, Arik has continued to seek new and more effective ways to treat difficult conditions with an advanced combination of modalities including dynamic stretching, movement re-education, and manual therapies. The end result is his protocols are able to resolve both simple and difficult conditions in a fraction of the time it would normally take in conventional physical rehabilitation.

For this, he has an international reputation as a sought out clinician for those suffering all levels of symptoms, as well as being respected as an educator of advanced subject matter such as neuro-ligament sciences.

Currently Arik owns a Physical Therapy clinic in Guadalajara, Mexico which has become the “go-to” clinic for patients of all varieties as well as some of the best athletes in the country. Additionally, Arik, since early 2016, has been focusing his efforts on resolving the massive chronic pain epidemic in the United States.

Arik currently resides and heads his clinic in Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico.  He can be reached at

Stephen Wadsworth LMT, MMLT

Stephen Wadsworth LMT, MMLT

Stephen began his massage career in 2000 in California, where he received his first license.  In order to treat soft tissue issues and pain more effectively and to help his clients heal, he went back to school in 2001 to study myofascial techniques, Structural Integration and trigger point therapies. Stephen graduated from the Healing Hands School of Holistic Health in 2003.

Stephen’s past and present clientele includes professional and Olympic swimmers and divers, professional football players, golfers, dancers and aerialists, extreme marathon runners (3100 miles !), hockey players, stay-at-home dads, active moms, martial artists, dog walkers, yoga practitioners, and lots of desk-job workers.

In 2008 Stephen met Arik Gohl, the creator of Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT), at an MLT demonstration in Washington.  He immediately saw the positive change this ground-breaking technique made in his clients and became a student of Arik.  Since then Stephen has worked closely with Arik and the MLT community to further develop and promote Manual Ligament Therapy across the country.

“I have to say, without a doubt, MLT has changed my practice. I would not want to be without this amazing tool!”

Out of excitement for new treatment possibilities and with a desire to share, Stephen trained to become an instructor of MLT.  He is now a Master instructor of Manual Ligament Therapy (MMLT) and teaches throughout the country.

Believing that education and good communication are the keys to change, Stephen works very closely with students to help them develop the understanding and confidence to use Manual Ligament Therapy as a stand-alone technique or as part of their own bodywork style.

Stephen enjoys playing ice hockey, a passion that started when he was 3 yrs old.
