COVID-19 UPDATE: Physical Therapy, Massage Therapy, Personal Training, and Pilates services are all operating. Telehealth Physical Therapy services are also available.  A face mask or covering is required for building entry. Our office can be reached by call or text at (925) 284-6150.

Our office is currently seeing an influx in patients due to county changes in COVID restrictions, reopening of elective surgeries, increased vaccination availability, and patients feeling comfortable starting therapy. This may result in a delay in our patient care coordinators getting back to you, but we promise to do so as soon as possible.
