Embody Physiotherapy & Wellness came about through the friendship Susan and Rebecca developed, first as colleagues working together, and then out of the office. After many years of practicing as PTs in traditional settings, we believed that we had more to offer to our patients and clients than a “one size fits all” philosophy found in many clinics. We wanted to design a practice that allowed us to spend the time needed to meet our patient’s goals, to be able to provide prevention and wellness, not simply addressing issues once present, and to not treat our clients as a number. We wanted to have a space that allowed space, privacy, and quiet for our clients.
We opened Embody Physiotherapy & Wellness on April 1, 2014. We have learned, grown, and developed since that date. Every day is a learning experience. It has been our privilege to care for and be trusted by so many people and their families; to be able to help them meet their movement, health, strength, and wellness needs. We look forward to meeting you and helping you move, breathe, function, live in the best way for YOU!
The Embody Physiotherapy Mission:
- We provide solutions for Pelvic Floor, Bladder, and Spine, and Pain concerns and problems.
- We work with you to keep pain, bladder leakage, frequency and urgency, and pelvic pressure from limiting your activity and life.
- We help you return to or improve your physical functioning, to PREVENT injury or limitations, and to limit decline.
- Our goal is to help YOU move, live, and function with the strength and ability you need to live without pain and with confidence in your body.
We provide you with solutions and answers. We help you do the things you want to and need to do, whether lifitng an infant carrier without pain, walking the dog, running or biking, lifting or walking, or getting up and down from the floor! We help you sleep through the night with less bladder urgency or frequency, and to not have to know where every bathroom is. We provide you with the ability to say “Yes” and to not be left behind (or to not say “NO” because of fear of holding others back!)

Rebecca M. Meehan
PT, WCS, PYT
Rebecca is a Western PA “transplant”, moving here after graduation from Medical Colleg of Virgina, VCU. Since 1982 her passion for working with her patients has only grown stronger, and she considers herself fortunate to have selected a profession that encourages constant learning and growth. Her family jokes that Rebecca watches people move and function no matter where she is, and she is always learning ways to help her clients move more easily and with more confidence in their body. Her interest and passion for wellness, prevention, and integrative health led to her study and certification in Medical Therapeutic Yoga, and in Bones for Life® and Franklin Method. Rebecca believes that as “anatomy and movement experts”(APTA), PTs can provide a bridge between rehab and the gym, community fitness, yoga and pilates classes. The Yoga classes that she teaches offers that bridge to her students and clients. She is always looking for strategies to help her clients meet their goals.
Rebecca’s in office passion is working with her patients and clients, but she also enjoys teaching Healthcare and fitness professionals, and teaching in the community. She is a participant with the Birthworkers of Western PA, the APTA, the Section on Women’s Health, and the PPTA.
Out of the office, you will find Rebecca spending time with her family, travelling, walking and bicycling, and grounding herself with cooking and gardening “therapy.”
