We accept all insurances.
Because of the the many and ever-changing plan options, we can best answer your insurance coverage questions individually. Please contact us so we can help you with this. We are often able to offer comparable rates even if we are an out of network provider.
We also offer Wellness visits for those who would like treatment without insurance coverage. This may be appropriate for those without insurance, with high deductibles, or who want care that falls outside of what insurance will cover. The initial visit is $140 and subsequent visits are $115.
“Beth gave me the opportunity to regain both physical and emotional strength by being a therapist who pushed just enough to make me see that the hard work was making a difference. She helps me to be brave even though our sessions are over and we’re thousands of miles away from each other. I still do the exercises she taught me!” -S.K.
“I’ve been a little wary of seeing a physical therapist because I honestly didn’t know why – but yesterday, I had an AMAZING appointment with Beth. I haven’t had an injury in over 10 years, but I have been having some difficulty getting muscle groups to engage in my yoga practice. She walked me through a ton of different exercises so that we could figure out which muscle groups were weak for me and she gave me a month-long plan to tonify my left hamstring and some of the smaller core muscles in my pelvis. She then did some myofascial release on my shoulders with a smooth metal tool. I left feeling great and having a better understanding of my body, so I’m stoked and wanting to share! Their office is also BEAUTIFUL!” – R.G.
“Dorothy and Katie are two of the finest physical therapy doctors around! I entered their care with a broken body; I now feel well. Thanks to their skilled intervention, pain no longer imprisons me. I am stronger and more flexible. I am encouraged.” -L.P.
Physical therapy serves a wide range of the population and can be a powerful bridge between traditional and alternative health care. We work to ensure recovery of function and improve quality of life by improving motion, strength and neurologic movement patterns in both acute and chronic injuries. We see powerful results when we are able to collaborate with other healthcare providers. While there are many amazing practitioners out there. The following is list of great resources and healers we have worked with and highly recommend.
