Healing from an injury or illness is a highly personal experience. The Roots approach is to treat the whole person rather than an individual body part. Our practice supports common complex orthopedic conditions, such as sprains and strains and lower back pain, as well as specialized physical therapy such as pelvic floor therapy.

"Roots Physical Therapy + Yoga is a welcoming and inclusive environment. While I have only been here for yoga, each experience has left me feeling more at ease and excited to return for another session. Jayna has such a calming presence while still adding a touch of humor during instruction. The entire staff is welcoming, informative and overall kindhearted. Thank you Roots for creating such a beautiful community and space for us all to share!"

"I have had fantastic experiences at Roots over the last few months. Jackie is a great physical therapist: she is kind, thorough and responsive and gives specific suggestions for follow up. I have seen REAL improvement on two different issues, with one now completely resolved. And Danielle is a wonderful massage therapist--great balance of focused work with overall relaxation. I am going back to her as often as I can!"

"I have been going to Danielle for therapeutic massages and she has worked wonders on improving my mobility specifically in my shoulders and upper back. After suffering a few weeks in pain, I had instant relief after my first massage appointment. It’s a great balance of therapeutic and focused work along with relaxation. I cannot recommend Danielle and Roots enough."
