Our primary goal is always to maximize your quality of life.
Located in the heart of Alexandria, we are a full service physical therapy practice, offering a range of wellness, rehabilitation and prevention focused programs, all in one-on-one sessions, specific to your needs. Our mission is to help you maintain and restore quality of life and function, through all of life’s stages and life styles.
Our process is simple: intensive total body evaluation, plus a comprehensive PT diagnosis leads us to your individualized plan of care. By using an integrative approach, including hands on treatments, personalized exercise prescription, lifestyle modification and more, you will reach your goals quickly and effectively.
Your initial call will be answered by one of our therapists. Please share with them what is ailing you and how we can serve you best. This will better assist us in assigning you the most appropriate clinician. We strive to get you scheduled for your Initial evaluation within 24 hours of your call.
Because each individuals’ case is different, it is impossible to predict the exact number of sessions needed to reach your personalized goals. Most patients typically see improvement in symptoms after six to eight sessions (or about three to four weeks). Many will have drastic improvements in their first week. Your experience in physical therapy serves to build a personalized plan for long-term management of your condition and prevent the need for continued care. You will be empowered with the knowledge and skills needed to help you stay mobile, healthy and active for as long as you choose.
Please Note: patients will be provided with forms necessary to seek reimbursement from their insurance carriers. We recommended you utilize our insurance worksheet, and contact them prior to beginning therapy to be aware of your out-of-network benefits.
Physical therapy treatments are a combination of manual/hands on techniques, modalities, self care directions, and exercise prescription to promote expedited recovery.
Manual treatments are unique to the individual and their impairments. Manual techniques used may consist of one or many of the following:
- Soft Tissue Manipulation / Mobilization
- Myofascial Release
- Craniosacral Technique
- Joint Mobilization
- Trigger Point Release
- Muscle Energy Technique
- Visceral Manipulation & Mobilization
- Trigger Point Dry Needling
- Grayston-like, Instrument Assisted Mobilization
In addition to taking a strong hands on approach to your rehabilitation, the following are possible additions to compliment your plan of care. Each of these modalities are regularly used to help reduce inflammation, pain, muscle guarding, and allow patients bodies to relax and heal.
Come prepared to be educated about each technique, why it makes sense for you, and how it will assist in achieving our goals

Our Far Infrared Sauna provides direct heat, allowing far infrared rays to penetrate into the body where they gently elevate its surface temperature and activate major bodily functions. Far Infrared treatments can help increase blood flow, stimulate metabolism, promote healing, stimulate detoxifying processes of the skin and liver, and encourage mental and musculoskeletal relaxation. Far Infrared Heat Therapy sessions also provide a convenient way to burn calories, detox, and get many of the benefits of a workout in a short period of time.
