WHAT WE DO

a humanist and the hands of an artist."

WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physical Therapists are experts in the science and study of human movement. We explore and analyze not only how and why we move, but then how we can successfully regain movement if we temporarily lose it.
We promote movement fluidity and efficiency. When one area of the body is out of sorts, it frequently causes a chain reaction of compensation patterns up and down the body,
whether we are aware of it or not.
It is the job of a good Physical Therapist to discover the underlying cause of dysfunction and pain, and then prescribe the right exercises and techniques for healing in the most efficient way possible.
WHO IS THIS PRACTICE FOR?
• Athletes who have had limited success at other clinics with “traditional” physical therapy – they come for the benefits of the LightCure Lightforce Laser for faster healing as well as often wanting to learn how pilates and yoga can enhance their sport performance.
• Distance runners who want to learn how to keep their posture tall, open, and efficient, and not become victim to the “runner’s round” - that excessive rounding of the upper back, seen with a forward head, from years of logging hundreds of miles.
• Individuals who are either new or experienced yoga or pilates practitioners and want a safer and deeper understanding of practice; many of my clients come for a few sessions to learn how to design a practice that is right for their body, lifestyle, and emotional needs.
• Individuals with scoliosis and postural dysfunction.
• Individuals with back or neck pain and spinal disorders
• Individuals with orthopedic issues (frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, piriformis syndrome, IT band and patello-femoral issues, etc) who have either had limited success in other clinics, or are seeking a private one on one approach that will get them better faster.
• Women in need of specialized and expert care specific to the needs of female health across the lifespan including pre and post natal muscle resilience and core strength, pelvic floor health, post lumpectomy or mastectomy needs, axial web syndrome (cording), stress incontinence, osteoporosis health, and more.
• Athletes for injury prevention and to establish musculoskeletal balance to keep them safe, strong, and injury-free.
• Individuals who are yoga or pilates practitioners who are either experiencing an injury that is slow to heal and need a boost, or are recovering from an injury and want to learn how to safely return to their practice.
• Individuals who want to get better the right way, the first time. No more wasted time going from therapist to therapist trying different approaches. We usually know within 3-4 visits if we are on track. In fact, I have a personal philosophy that I do not charge a session to someone if I cannot help them. That is why I only take on the cases with which I know I can significantly improve.
• Individuals who want to learn how to integrate meditation in their busy life in a way that is both accessible and meaningful.
