Will the MWP Academy
Work for You?


If you lack mobility and/or stability in one or more of these planes your body compensates, and this can lead to chronic pain that does not resolve.

Isolating joints or muscles WILL NOT address the root cause of pain.

Exercising, stretching, heating, icing, injecting, cupping, or dry needling the painful body part will NOT re-establish functional motion in the area that is likely causing the problem.

Take knee pain for example: Your knees are a fairly simple hinge joints (like a door) and they are at the mercy of your hips and ankles. If you are only treating your knees, you may be missing the cause of your problem, leading to potential surgery that still doesn’t fix the root cause of your problem.

What about shoulder pain? Are you aware that functional hip rotation is necessary for proper shoulder motion? Working your shoulder will not resolve a hip limitation. Full hip function is also required for a healthy pelvic floor to prevent the need for disposable underwear in your future. Yes, there is even a class designed for incontinence using the Move Without Pain (MWP) concept and it works!

Every movement you make creates a chain reaction in your body that requires a stable core and mobile joints. Everything is connected to everything else!

MWP works by resolving limitations in mobility and stability that are the cause of your pain.

When a major joint is limited in one or more of these 3 planes of motion, chronic pain and an inflamed or injured joint structure is often the result. Train your body the way it is designed to really work and get all those wonderful muscles and joints moving the way they were INTENDED to move; without pain.

In the MWP Academy, you’ll learn the right movements from an expert who teaches people how to eliminate pain, regain health, and return to doing the things they love to do every day. The weekly live sessions (recorded) focus on improving, restoring, and/or maintaining functional pain-free motion in your body so you can age well, excel in your favorite sport, or recover from chronic pain or injury.

There are other important areas that influence your ability to move without pain and age well. These areas are addressed in the Success Modules and they include Nourishment, Lifestyle, Hydration, Breath, Weight, Immune Function, Movement, and Aging. 

The benefits continue with expert speakers who share priceless knowledge that can be crucial to learn for your specific challenges.

When you combine accurate human movement education & training with accurate facts about how food either promotes or fights pain & inflammation, how your breath can increase or decrease pain, how water intake can affect pain, how movement can impact aging, and so on; you are empowered to succeed!

When you are rewarded for learning, asking questions, sharing good things with others, being consistent with workouts, showing up each week, and so much more; you are provided with a recipe to triumph over pain and the risk of losing your independence as you age!

Hi, I'm Eileen Kopsaftis!

My mission is to erase pain from the world

Yes, you can move without pain and age well into your nineties and beyond! You just need to know how…

About Eileen

Eileen Kopsaftis is a health and pain expert who sees people eliminate pain, regain health, and return to doing the things they love to do every day.

I have always sought out truth, even as a child. My reason for being is to improve the lives of others. When I lost two brothers in their forties (one to cancer, the other to heart disease) I knew I had to do all I could to keep others from the same tragedy. When I was little, I wanted to be a doctor; yet when it came time to start college, I did not agree with the medical model of medicating symptoms and managing disease as it progressed. I also disagreed with what was being taught in nutrition programs. The physical therapy program caught my attention as I have always been fascinated with the workings of the human body.

Fast forward to the first-ever Nutrition Educator Program designed to teach people how to eliminate the need for medications and restore health. I am now living my dream as a manually skilled physical therapist, certified applied functional science professional, trained MELT instructor, and nutrition educator graduate. I empower others to make informed decisions in order to achieve pain-free living and optimal health.
