What is "Integrative Physical Therapy"?

Our modern lives just keep getting more complicated, don't they?

The constant demand of our jobs, families, and other obligations causes stress, tension, and inflammation to build up in our bodies in ways that make us sore, sick, and so very tired. You are trying your best to stay healthy and active, but it feels like you're still just barely keeping up. Now, throw in an unexpected injury, some chronic pain, and a dash of burn-out... and suddenly you realize that you need help.


Welcome to Brightside: a safe, trauma-informed, and inclusive space that is designed with one intent - to help you learn how to feel better.  My name is Christina, and I am a licensed doctor of physical therapy, a philosopher, teacher, and a fierce believer in your body's innate wisdom and ability to heal itself. Based on my clinical observations as well as my personal experiences, I have come to understand that pain, dysfunction, or other manifestations in the physical body are intrinsically interwoven with other factors within your emotional body, your environment, and your etheric vital energies. 


You are so much more than the sum of your parts.

So, I don't treat individual body parts - I treat YOU

At Brightside, I'm here to help you reconnect with your whole healthy self.  "Integrative" describes a holistic approach to physical health that combines conventional treatments (such as bodywork and exercise) with complementary therapies (such as mindfulness, energy work, storytelling, and ceremony). "Integrative" means that you and I will work together with your body as our guide to create wholeness and synergy across all layers of your experience. The body is an intelligent system of infinite moving parts, all of them connected by the electrical grid of your nervous system, and existing within a complex environment of gravity, temperature, work, play, and stress. "Integrative" means finding cooperation amid the chaos.

Your pain is real, and your history is important, but neither of those define who you are or where you're going.  At Brightside, you will have the opportunity to be seen, heard, and held as you restore your health, re-take your power, and write a new story about who you are becoming

Are you ready to feel better?
