Because I wanted to build on improvements I was experiencing in physiotherapy, I started taking the Movement and Yoga Fundamentals classes several months ago. They are fun, affordable, and expertly conducted. I've experienced much improvement in flexibility. I would recommend these classes to all ages and mobility levels!
"I went to Embody PT for a number of weeks and Becki clearly helped me with my post-op neck issues. She was really able to help me in understanding the dynamics of correcting my posture and how by doing specific exercises my range of motion would improve as well as my strength. She worked with me to help me estblish better ways of exercising and really gave me the tools that I needed to move forward. I continue to do those exercises daily as I am committed to staying active and healthy. I am grateful to her for heading me in the right direction." EKS
"Rebecca Meehan has focused my one hour therapy sessions on strategies to strengthen muscle groups underlying my back problems, including exercises and props that can be employed at home, while sitting at a desk, or doing long periods of inactivity such as long car rides. She clearly explains how spine mobility is affected by weaknesses in other areas of the body...She has provided inmumerable simple ways to approach these issues on my own. In additon to therapy, I have been helped by attending classes at Embody that reinforce the exercises derived from therapy....It has been helpful to supplement my therapy with regular classes that are not only helping me improve back pain, but also overall strength and flexibility."

8-5-2017 From ST: I got a birthday message from Embody today and wanted to send you a message! Today I was able to run my first race since my injury. It was the best birthday present ever and I am overjoyed that I was actually able to do it!
I wanted to send my sincerest thanks to you for seeing me at my very lowest and helping me process what was happening to me and how to begin to move forward. Thank you for saying that I could get back to running with time. I won't ever forget that, especially when so many others told me I needed to be done. Thank you for doing what you do. (Embody PT note- seeing our clients progress and return to the activities they love is one of the "WHYS" behind what we do. Hearing back from our clients and patients when they have succeeded makes our day! Congrats to ST for continuing to work on the things that are important to her and meeting her goal!)
"Thank you! I did it - sat for 3 hours without any problems!
I'm a CrossFit trainer and to a lot of us "PT" might as well be a dirty word. Not here though. Susan does CrossFit herself and works hand-in-hand with me and my trainers to get athletes back into the gym with the best outcomes. If you're looking for an effective PT with superb knowledge and a "let's get you back to doing what you love" approach then look no further! Gary T. 12-20-16, co-owner of CrossFit MindFire
April 2017 The professional attention they provide to their clients is second to none. You are treated as an individual by a caring and incredibly knowledgeable staff. I always recommend Embody for anyone seeking physical therapy services. S Karas, PT
Physical therapy like no place else. They care about you as a whole and they make sure you leave feeling like you are on the right path to healing but also like you have a good Health and Wellness support system. Would not go anywhere else!
**About 9 months after having a cesarean section I started having severe abdominal muscle cramps. I researched online for a someone who specialized in post partum issues and was fortunate enough to come across Embody. After a detailed evaluation by Rebecca Meehan she discovered underlying reasons for this issue. She was extremely accommodating and opened her schedule on Saturdays for my appointments. We communicated frequently via email. Rebecca developed a program of exercises I could do at home and in the office. I am grateful for her help and recommend her to anyone having post partum troubles. - PF (May 2016)
Embody PT Note: PF recently had fun running a leg of the Pittsburgh Marathon! We LOVE hearing from our patients and students, and celebrating their accomplishments!
CO August 2016 I highly recommend Embody for anyone that has “tried PT before and it didn’t work” or anyone frustrated with medical recommendations and treatment without seeing results. The Embody approach is holistic and positive with an integration of science with clinical skills, experience, and the art and science of yoga therapy. I know that I have a healthcare partner that I trust to help me along my path of lifelong wellness. (Embody PT note-if you would like more of CO's story, visit our blog page).
**Even before I was formally diagnosed with stage 3 pelvic organ prolapse, I researched solutions. I really don’t want to have surgery unless it is a last resort, and I want to stay active – hiking, long walks, yoga, gardening. There really is a solution if you are willing to devote some time and effort. I found Embody Physiotherapy and after discussion with my urogynecology doctor and PA, requested a referral. I couldn’t be happier.....I’ve continued to do the breathing exercises daily and include a mix of the other exercises in my morning stretching routine. So far, so good! I’ve put in 100 miles walking or hiking nearly every month this summer, gone back to yoga classes knowing the modifications to make, and rarely have an issue. Does this PT make the prolapse go away? No. Does it make it manageable? Most definitely! For your own peace of mind, I highly recommend working with Embody for several sessions before making a decision about surgery. I think that if you are willing to heed her advice, you will be amazed KC October 2016
We love that KC is staying in touch with us to keep up us to date with her adventures and successes, but also because she knows that if she has quesitons or concerns, we are here to help resolve concerns! Embody PT
June 2017 I have known Susan as an Instructor over a number of years. When My problem came up, I knew she was going to be the right person to help me. I took advantage of an e-visit to get started, as I live several hours from the clinic. Susan took the time to listen to my history and was able to offer a few things that I could work on prior to my initial evaluation. At my initial evaluation I was already doing quite a bit better. Over the past few months I have been putting what I have learned into practice both personally and professionally. I am feeling great! EW (Embody note: we love when other health care professionals seek us out and are able to learn personally and professionally!)
I'm so happy to have found such a great place to work on my chronic pain! Super helpful, inspirational and a very clean and welcoming studio! March 13, 2017
Embody note: We LOVE when our clients and students are searching for help and find us! K was searching for a yoga class that she felt waas "Safe" for individuals with medical problems, she came to class, and felt empowered and confident!
Becky Meehan is very professional. I went to numerous Medical professionals and suffered for months. She was the only one who understood my problems and addressed them. In a matter of weeks I was back to feeling normal and functioning much better. Please see her if you're having problems... trust me you won't be disappointed! October 2016
** MJ August 8, 2016 I am eternally thankful I found my way to Embody Physiotherapy. I could not have been in better hands. A lot is expected of you as a patient as far as following through by showing for appointments and being diligent with your home program but you can expect to reap the rewards. I will always be striving to improve to an even better level of function than I am at now. Thankfully, I know that I am now building on a firm foundation that I never had in the past
