The Merz/Embody Approach

Welcome to an Integrative, “Whole Human” Experience, beyond Physical Therapy to complete health and performance . . .

From prevention and performance enhancement to rehab; from athletic injuries to chronic pain, our rehabilitation services are one-of-a-kind, just like you.

Specializing in using movement to help you connect to yourself and embody your best life regardless of your condition or physical needs, we welcome patients of all ages, abilities, and interests. Whether you struggle with everyday physical challenges or you’re an elite athlete with a specific injury, we are here to support your journey.

The heart of our practice is the belief that you are “whole” as you are. You’re not broken, needing to be fixed. We believe healing takes place in a comfortable, judgement-free zone that welcomes you express as openly as you desire. We do our best to let you know you’re seen. You’re heard. Understood and accepted for who you are and where you’re at in your journey.

Bringing back an uncommon approach, that was once common . . .

Contrary to the traditional Western Medicine approach which commonly treats conditions and body parts in isolation, we contemplate the entirety of your life story to develop a truly personalized plan of action. For example, when treating low back pain, traditional medicine might simply identify what part of the back is damaged or weak and focus simply on improving or strengthening that part of the back.

The Merz/Embody approach thoroughly evaluates your movement from head-to-toe, while also integrating the mental, emotional and spiritual factors that may be significant to your lower back pain. With the information gathered, you collaborate with us to create an all-encompassing action plan that – when practiced with purpose and consistency – will help you meet and exceed the demands of your daily life.  Our objective is to educate and empower you, giving you the tools to support the ever-present healing process within, while using your (incredibly important!) symptoms to guide your long-term health and performance.

If you have had a problem or pain that no one has been able to figure out, give Merz/Embody Health and Performance a try. Let us help you awaken to your weakest links and support in your recovery and growing resiliency.

Everybody cares. We specialize in it.  We specialize in helping you care about YOU.

We are passionate about staying on top of the evolving science that drives our field:

  • Our therapists enthusiastically pursue continuing education to embody and teach the most current and effective interventions in therapy and integrative health.

  • Merz/Embody Health and Performance holds regular continuing education courses on site for local and international practitioners
