A few years ago mindbodygreen.com said it well when they stated “We may cost more up front, but we’re worth in in the long run”, while talking about holistic physical therapy. Ultimately, more often than not, physical therapy is either a “traditional, insurance-driven practice or an alternative/holistic cash-based practice”.
So why would one chose to pay cash when they pay their insurance premiums each month? I mean, why not take advantage of what you are already paying for right? The simple answer is what kind of care are you receiving and are you getting better? Typically, within the insurance driven world, the doctor is limited to one body part per visit. In holistic therapy the approach is interactive and inclusive meaning not just the body but the mind and soul too.
Have you ever heard “it’s all in your head”? We, holistic PT’s thrive on this as it is an opportunity for healing with the right tools. A large percentage of our clients come to use having numerous diagnostic imaging reports that are negative and they are left (without answers).
The greatest thing about being a holistic PT practice is I can give you the support you need (even between therapy sessions), only schedule appointments when they are necessary and not because there is a certain number written on a script pad, and I am your teammate. I am here for you to empower you and educate you throughout your healing journey.
So please, next time you need physical therapy, think about joining the shift and receiving personalized, individual and intimate care you and your body deserve.
