Since you are a physical therapist, can I use my health insurance?

Insurance typically will not cover yoga classes or private yoga, or small group sessions. Regarding physical therapy: we are an out-of-network provider, and the services we provide absolutely are reimbursable by insurance. You will receive an itemized bill you can submit to your insurance company to obtain reimbursement as set forth in your insurance policy. This way, you are the deciding factor on whether or not you receive quality care, which is of suitable length of time per visit, and with qualified professionals.

Do I have to do yoga if I see you for physical therapy?

Absolutely not! You reserve that right as a human! I use yoga as a tool, of which there are many to choose from in physical therapy. To be honest, there is so much fascinating research coming forth about yoga's successful medical use, from COPD to neck pain, to Long COVID, so if you change your mind, don't worry- it will be safe and designed specifically for you, based on what WORKS.

What can I expect from physical therapy with you?

You can expect to feel listened to and important in your healing, because you are. Rehabilitation is broken up into several phases. The first phase is generally about decreasing pain and implementing simple changes to gain confidence in your abilities. Gentle stretching & strengthening via both yoga and traditional physical therapy are often used here, as well as medical massage and joint manipulations, and ways to make your activities more possible. The second phase is about carefully increasing what we ask of your body so your abilities can increase, and you can start to find more joy in life again. Everything listed in phase One is used here, but in a slightly more complex, whole body way. The third phase is about making sure that those new patterns of movement and confidence are instinctually part of your life, so you can live more fully, to the capacity you hope and desire.
