At the age of 17, Dr. Hutchins began a vigorous interest in the practice of yoga, and through his experience with the stretching and postures, began to realize that he had created imbalances is his body's structure as a result of his strenuous physical endeavors. He realized that these imbalances were probably the result of various injuries and stresses he had suffered from his previous physical endeavors. He began searching for help on his road to correcting these imbalances. In 1978, Dr. Hutchins went for his first naprapathic treatment. He was impressed with the practice and decided to pursue his doctorate degree in naprapathy.
