Tell us about yourself

We started our business because we felt that were was a lack of quality services for PT, OT, and Pilates in our area. We are motivated daily by our clients; it is so rewarding to see them come in week after week and see the improvement in their pain, mobility, and overall quality of life.

Our biggest accomplishment would be navigating how to start and run a business during the middle of a pandemic.

One of the hardest things about being a business owner is that you never really have a day off. However, when you are doing something you love, it makes it all worth it.

  1. If you are thinking about starting your own business, DO IT! It will be hard at first, but it is worth every bit of stress along the way.
