Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a transformational hands-on modality that works with you to reduce your pain, restore your movement, rehabilitate you after an injury or surgery, improve the quality of your life, and get you back to doing what you love best…being active in your body and playing!

About the practice:

In my physical therapy practice, I integrate massage, yoga and teaching into each session to provide you with results in real time. I want to empower you with the knowledge and skills you need to sustain health and balance moving forward. My ultimate goal is to get you back on track and feeling like yourself, so that you no longer need my help.
