Make Health Simple
Through Empowered Recovery
We teach you the tools to recover from pain and optimize your health independently.
What Makes Us Different?
1-on-1, 1 hour-long visits with a Doctor of Physical Therapy providing your treatment and no use of PT aides or assistants.
Individualized treatment plans based on your individual goals and personalized home programs that give you lifetime access to your curated health tool kit.
Treatment plans are dictated by you and your needs, not by insurance.
Our Treatment Approach
We do not stop at just making you feel better. We work with you as a team to develop your personalized set of knowledge and tools to help you reclaim a sense of ownership over your body, so you no longer feel lost and powerless.
Our philosophy of treatment involves not only looking at and addressing the physical stressors on your body, but the mental, emotional, and life-related stressors as well that also have a large impact on your health and condition.
It is our holistic method of working towards the balance of a person’s body, mind, and life that makes us unique and why our clients learn to transform themselves for long-term health gains.

Michael is absolutely amazing! By far my favorite PT of all time! Not only is his energy infectious and his care totally genuine, but he’s beyond knowledgeable and able to make drastic progress in little time. He taught me so many valuable things, such as “Pain does not equal harm. Pain does not equal tissue damage. Acknowledge the pain and breathe through it. Visualize the neck as something soft and pliable instead of hard like a rock. These are just a few of the things Michael taught me along the way. I can’t recommend him enough!
Michael Aquino helped improve my life, literally… It was his techniques and patience and talking to me in “human” words that taught me how to strengthen my body and other muscles that have me walking and dancing again. He is personable and enthusiastic! He is smart and understands holistically how to heal and in my case, a knee injury that was so painful I could not walk without limping… the exercises he taught me I can easily do now that I understand how to do them. I cannot recommend him highly enough. On a scale from one to ten stars. He gets ten stars!!!
Michael is a fantastic PT and was not only knowledgeable but also extremely attentive and available. He said we would be able to fix my problem and we did. He even got me up and running again, something I’ve done my whole life but thought I wouldn’t do again after some bad back spasms a few years prior. I’m really happy he came into my life when he did. Highly recommended.
