a community of touch and movement professionals


Getting Better: the center for bodywork and movement is an organization founded in 2011 by George Russell, DC, MALS, with the assistance of Aviva Geismar, LMT, MFA.

The mission of GETTING BETTER is to sponsor quality education and interdisciplinary dialogue to and between practitioners that approach the body conservatively through practices including muscle release, movement education, structural realignment, and neuromuscular re-education. Our goal is to promote philosophical clarity, conceptual and anatomical expertise, diverse, effective technique, and superior standards of care in our members.
