Our patients tell us that this endometriosis physical therapy gave them their life back!

Here is a testimonial from one patient who lives in another state and flew to see us for an intensive 6 hours of treatment in one week:

My week with Maureen was the most encouraging, beneficial and life-changing time I’ve spent since my PFD began. Along with being kind and understanding, she is also incredibly knowledgeable, and has a sixth sense when it comes to understanding the human body. Unlike the other physical therapists who’ve treated my PFD, Maureen uses her training and intuition to treat PFD with a whole body approach.

I returned home feeling the direct positive benefits of Maureen’s physical therapy; with a better understanding of PFD and my body; and most importantly, a belief that I don’t have to just manage my pain: I can recover. In order to do so, I also returned with a significant list of brand new tasks and tools that I have slowly but successfully incorporated into my life. Maureen’s confidence that my body and soul will continue to feel better has given me newfound strength and patience to practice my new regimen as I heal.
