After three month in business, the word is starting to get out: If you’ve had persistent trouble finding relief from chronic pain or dysfunction, a new approach to physical therapy and wellness in Prairie Village may have the solution.
Launched this spring, BodyinSync offers a unique approach to rehabilitation and treatment of chronic pain by bringing together specialists in three district practices: physical therapy, yoga and pilates.
“The idea is that we can truly bridge the gap between injury and recovery by taking advantage of the therapeutic benefits of each approach,” said Sushma Patel, PT, one of the clinic’s co-founders. “Every client’s situation and needs are different, so we promote wellness through the use of safely guided exercise with your specific case in mind.”
The clinic’s initial assessment track — a six session program that provides hands-on, private therapy and instruction — has quickly become one of the group’s most popular offerings, and includes the option of advancing the treatment to 12 private sessions with varying levels of intensity. But, says Patel, the group’s instructional workshops have gotten rave reviews from clients as well. Just this month, BodyinSync hosted a workshop entitled “Introduction to a Healthy Spine” that sold out.
Here’s what workshop attendees and other clients have to say about their experience:
- “What a wonderful learning experience thanks to some amazing women who are passionate about what they do! I am determined to implement all that I learned into my daily life as well as my workout routine!” Katie P., spine workshop.
- “Such and amazing morning learning about how to better my life!” Holly T., spine workshop
- “All three instructors are very experienced and professional. The way they work together to address specific muscle and movement issues is amazing! This alternative approach integrating PT with personalized yoga and Pilates really works! BodyInSync has allowed me to learn the basics of yoga and Pilates at my own pace while still being able to meet with the physical therapist for help with concerns with my neck, back, hips and knees.” Valerie, six session assessment track.
In response to the overwhelming feedback from the spinal workshop, BodyinSync is organizing two new workshop: “Healing the Neck and Shoulders” and “Journey into Meditation.”
Healing the Neck and Shoulders will be held Saturday, August 20. The three-hour session will teach participants a series of basic exercises that improve alignment and muscle recruitment for the neck and shoulders, helping alleviate pain. For information about how to register, click here.
Journey into Meditation is a three-session course that will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sept. 9, 16 and 23 (all Sundays). The workshop will focus on how you can introduce a medication practice into you life to improve both mental and physical health. Call 913-432-3950 for registration information and program details.
