What Makes Chimera Health Different? 



Physical Therapy sessions are 1:1 and designed just for you. You are never passed on to an aide, and each session is 60 min to give you all the time you need. Receive personalized care including videos of your exercises that will be updated as you improve. 




My approach combines the best evidence based Physical Therapy with Pilates and Yoga,  strength training along with neuromotor retraining, joint mobilizations, joint manipulations, trigger point try needling, and much more. I treat your whole body, not just the area of injury to help you feel even better and more resilient than you did before!

In Greek mythology, the Chimera was a fire-breathing hybrid creature, with a lion head,  a goat head, and a snake tail. 

The Chimera symbolizes my hybrid approach to health and fitness It also reflects my love for all things creative, imaginative, and ferocious.
