Physical Therapy at Refit

When traditional physical therapy is your prescription to healing, re:fit is a leader in proven and innovative techniques. Myofacial release, muscle energy, advanced joint mobilization and taping are just some of the services offered for a variety of orthopedic and neurological conditions. Re:fit also prescribes customized exercise to enhance overall well-being and athletic performance.

Re:fit offers a unique approach to treatment by combining traditional physical therapy with the alternative techniques of Integrated Manual Therapy™ (IMT) and Ayurvedic Medicine, as well as Pilates, Gyrotonic® and Feldenkrais® exercises.

Integrated Manual Therapy

Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT) is a long-awaited and proven technique which enhances traditional physical therapy by integrating one’s entire system – mind, body & soul – to foster complete healing at the cellular level. While traditional physical therapy focuses solely on the muscles, bones and joints, IMT looks at all systems of the physical body (cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, lymphatic, gastrointestinal, neural and craniosacral), along with psychosocial, emotional and belief systems. For example, if you are experiencing pain in your neck, the source of that pain is not necessarily in the neck. The source could be a dysfunction stemming from a physical, psychosocial, emotional, or even spiritual origin. We “map” the body using light touch to determine the primary system of dysfunction, and use a combination of treatment, including craniosacral therapy, nutritional recommendations, and psychotherapeutic techniques to improve your healing potential. This gentle yet effective technique releases blockages and restrictions to help the body heal as a whole.

All re:fit IMT practitioners are also licensed physical therapists.

Ayurvedic Consultation

Discover how an Ayurvedic consultation can provide simple yet profound life-changing recommendations for diet, lifestyle, and routine. You will learn how your body, mind, energy and spirit are affected by your 3 bio-energies, known as “doshas” of vata (air), pitta (fire), and kapha (earth). You will learn how much water you need daily (and at what temperature), what type and intensity of exercise is best for you, and what foods and spices are compatible for your constitution (prakriti). You will learn breathing techniques compatible with your current state, which will move you toward effective meditation. We will also teach you techniques such as self-massage for sleep issues and dry brushing for lymphatic drainage and skin rejuvenation. Based on your personal goals, we will offer the preparation and rejuvenation therapies and if needed, can refer you to a Pancha Karma clinic for specialized therapies. An Ayurvedic consultation can help you balance your inner-rhythms the way nature intended.
