You may find yourself needing physical therapy after a serious injury, illness or surgery. The goals of physical therapy are to relieve pain, stimulate healing, restore health and balance, and achieve lifelong wellness. Integrative medicine, like that practiced at Gentle Wellness Center, recognizes the connection between the body, mind and spirit. That’s why our physical therapy specialists address your thought patterns, your emotions, your reaction to stress and other factors — in addition to the right way to move. Factors affecting your mind and spirit may be contributing to your health issues and/or preventing you from fully recovering.
After determining the underlying causes of any health issue(s), we develop an individualized therapy plan for each patient. A need to treat more than your physical dysfunction may be evident. At the Gentle Wellness Center rehabilitation facility, we teach you not only how to move better, but also how to release your emotional and mental tensions, putting you in the best position for recovery and health so you can get back to your natural state of wellness.

You’ll move more comfortably — with less pain and less fatigue — and you’ll learn how to release the tension that may be preventing you from achieving optimal health.
