Referrals

We welcome referrals from medical professionals, physical therapists and massage therapists who recommend customized corrective training for their patients and clients. As movement specialists we realize that there is an important bridge between the medical and movement communities to create the proper balance through healthy living to create total wellness for our clients.
We will work closely with your post-rehabilitated patients to determine what exercises are appropriate and change them accordingly as their conditions improve.  We assess each individual client’s needs by taking a brief medical history followed by a full strength and range-of-motion evaluation to determine what exercises are appropriate. Once established, we will create a multi-disciplinary personalized corrective training program to meet their specific needs.
