Doctor Jon Morey’s career in the health sciences began in 1988 when he stepped into the Korean Hapkido Academy. Hapkido, he quickly discovered, differed from most other martial arts, emphasizing the practice of joint locking and throws in addition to the more common milieu of kicks and punches.
However, Dr. Morey wasn’t satisfied with using the art of joint manipulation simply for self-defense; he wanted to understand how the science of joint mechanics could be used in the promotion of health as well. This desire led Dr. Morey back to school where he graduated from the National University of Health Sciences with a degree in Chiropractics in 2004.
MovNat, quite simply, is a physical education and fitness system based on exploiting the full range of natural human movement skills with an emphasis on preventative care. MovNat is a holistic system that embraces all age groups and physical abilities, which ironically, also includes self defense.
Dr. Morey lives in Flushing, Michigan , with his wife Kerry Ann, and their four sons. He considers his marriage and his boys his most amazing accomplishments in a life filled with achievement. He currently practices Chiroprac tic medicine and teaches MovNat at his clinic located in Flint, Michigan.
In addition, he also teaches premedical and biology classes at the University of Michigan , Hurley Hospital, and at several local high schools. In his spare time he explores the woods in Michigan ‘s north country.
