About Us

Working on the Legs

Lafayette Physical Therapy strives to provide extraordinary physical therapy in a professional, caring, results-oriented and cost-effective way to restore, enhance and preserve function, movement, and health. We will help each patient achieve his or her highest functional level by being dedicated to excellence in our clinical practice. We will treat patients with dignity and respect by truly listening to them to help them meet their goals. Finally, we will provide these services in an environment that fosters the professional and personal grown of each LPT employee.


Our History & Philosophy

Lafayette Physical Therapy has served the greater community for over 48 years. We are locally owned and operated with an unyielding dedication to serving our community. Our family-oriented care is seen within the rapport among our patients and staff who maintain a professional yet relaxed and enjoyable environment.

We are dedicated to the highest quality physical therapy and rehabilitation services. Our team of physical therapists have advanced degrees and extensive experience to provide the best care and services to you. We also contract with exceptional wellness providers who are certified Massage Therapy providers, certified CranioSacral Therapists and certified instructors. Their knowledge and enthusiasm push for progress within individual and small group settings. We also host cutting-edge technology and equipment to further rehabilitation, conditioning and strengthening independently or with a trained instructor.

Our allegiance to rehabilitation and wellness within our community is notable within our clinical, professional, and social endeavors.

We want to put out a special thank you to Valerie Watase, PT, former Co-Owner of Lafayette PT. Valerie retired at the end of 2020 and we want to thank her for over 40 years of service. She has helped thousands of patients and made a significant impact on the community. Lauren Masi, PT, DPT, OCS, ATC, Clinical Services Director, and Owner is dedicated to furthering our mission and continuing to provide the vital services, compassion, and care that the community deserves.

Now Serving You in Two Locations

We have two locations in the Bay Area – Lafayette Physical Therapy, in Lafayette, CA, and Bay Area Physical Therapy in Pleasant Hill, CA. Both locations are owned and operated under “Lafayette Physical Therapy, Inc,” a local woman-owned business. Bay Area Physical Therapy joined Lafayette Physical Therapy in January 2016. Together our focus is on helping improve the health of our community by providing patients and their families with health, healing, and education through comprehensive physical therapy, therapeutic massage, wellness services, and diagnostic testing.
