The Mission

Clinton’s business, Better Body Dynamics, is the go-to company for quality therapeutic massage and bodywork pain-free services and massage therapy continuing education (CE). 

The three most important words in Clinton’s Better Body Dynamics business are “educate, educate, educate.” For every therapeutic bodywork massage and fitness training session, Clinton’s priority is educating clients about enhancing and training towards pain-free movement. 

When on the podium as a licensed CE provider, Clinton specializes in stress and pain-relief, muscle and balance assessments, therapeutic massage and bodywork techniques, and home fitness training exercises. As a Texas and nationally certified continuing education provider, he provides recurring CE classes to local and nation-wide massage therapists.

Further, Clinton mentored with Paul Kelly, founder of The Temple/Human Performance center. Also, Clinton is an avid supporter and student of Gray Cook, the founder of Functional Movement systems, and as such Clinton promotes the concept of movement pattern screening and assessment.

He is an active continuing education provider who instructs current bodywork techniques, multiple modalities, and functional assessments.
