Kimberly Burnham, MT, PhD
In 2006, Kimberly Burnham added a PhD in Integrative Medicine to her 15 year as a
manual therapy practitioner. This added to the richness and breadth of her experience and
specialization in working with people dealing with neurological and visual disorders. Her
dissertation topic was “The Effect of Integrative Manual Therapy on the Symptom’s of
Kim is certified in Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT). Her 10 plus years at the Center for
Integrative Manual Therapy and Diagnostics (CenterIMT) were spent treating clients at the
headquarters in Bloomfield, CT and as the clinical manager in Boulder, CO. Her job titles
included, instructor for the Connecticut School of Integrative Manual Therapy; Director of
Knowledge Management, Director of Neurodegenerative Disorders, and Director of VisionIMT.
A licensed Massage Therapist, Kim graduated from Sutherland-Chan (Toronto,1993)
where she later taught clinical courses. She also studied cranial work focused on holistic healing,
headaches, back pain, fatigue, neurological conditions, cranial circulation and more through the
Upledger Institute, The Milne Institute, Canadian College of Osteopathy and had a private
practice in Toronto for 5 years before joining the staff at CenterIMT.
The thing Kim loved most about working for CenterIMT was the opportunity to see
positive changes in clients with a dismal medical forecast. She has had the good fortune to see
so many positive changes, changes that many would consider miraculous or impossible. That
experience has really ignited her ability to see that anything is possible.
At CenterIMT, Kim enjoyed traveling and broadening her global perspective on health.
She consulted with clients in Hong Kong, Israel and Italy, as well as treating people from all
over the world in Bloomfield, CT. One highlight was speaking at the “Defeat Autism Now” 2007
conference in Verona, Italy. In 2008, she spoke about “Using Complementary and Alternative
Medicine for Alzheimer’s Disease” at the Connecticut Alzheimer’s Association annual meetings.
To her clinical practice, Kim brings expertise as a Certified Hypnotherapist and Certified
Matrix Energetics Practitioner. These tools allow her to interact with the client holistically,
focus on shifts and help clients see significant improvements in symptoms. She has a strong
grasp on reference material, research and morphic fields, which she taps into during treatment
Familiar with a wide range of nutritional therapies, Kim is a nutritional specialist (2006)
and studied homotoxicology (2004) with Heel and phytotherapy (2009) with Kerry Bones.
A proficient writer with the ability to clearly explain health concerns and hands-on
approaches, Kim is the editor of The Burnham Review, a twice monthly e-newsletter reviewing
the medical and scientific evidence supporting the use and benefits of manual therapy, energy
medicine and other forms of complementary and alternative medicine.
Referring to the first time working with an individual, Kim says, “I believe, what we
expect and observe, influences what we get. People in my practice can expect my full attention
as well as positive changes and progress with their goals. It is best to come to the first session
having thought about your goals. If anything, truly anything, can shift about your health, your
life, your relationships, your way of being in the world, what do you want? What does “better”
look and feel like for you.”
