Integrative Physiotherapy

Integrative Physiotherapy offered by Glenda Lane, PT

Glenda has been a practicing physical therapist for over three decades; during this time the science on which the practice of physiotherapy is based has evolved exponentially. New areas of study such as epigenetics and psychoneuroimmune factors have made it clear that our physical health and our ability to heal go beyond a basic tissue level. Body, mind, and spirit cannot be separated.

Glenda is not content to wait for the evolving science to slowly make its way into the mainstream practice of medicine. She is a pioneer and leader who has taken her extensive experience in traditional physical therapy and combined it with the field of energy coaching. There are incredible benefits that come from combining these two areas of expertise to address the person as a whole. Each field has unique strengths that complement one another, leading to a more holistic and comprehensive approach to health and wellness.

Bridging Physical and Energetic Approaches to Healing

Traditional physical therapy tends to focus on the body’s physical structures and functions, including muscles, joints, and nerves. It aims to improve mobility, reduce pain, and restore function through targeted exercises, manual therapy, and other modalities. 

Energy coaching is based on the understanding that our bodies are not just physical but also energetic. It involves working with the body’s energy systems, including chakras and meridians, to balance and optimize the flow of energy throughout the body.

When these two approaches are combined, clients can experience a range of benefits that go beyond what either modality could offer on its own.

How Integrative Physiotherapy Can Help You

  • Enhanced Pain Relief: Physical therapy can be incredibly effective in reducing pain caused by physical injuries or conditions. However, when pain is caused or exacerbated by energetic blockages or imbalances, it can be harder to treat. By addressing both the physical and energetic aspects of pain, clients can experience more complete and lasting relief.
  • Improved Mobility and Flexibility: In physical therapy, the focus is often on improving range of motion and flexibility through targeted exercises and stretching. When combined with intuitive energy coaching, clients can also work on releasing energetic blockages that may be limiting their physical mobility.
  • Greater Mind-Body Connection: Intuitive energy coaching can help clients tune in to their bodies on a deeper level and develop greater awareness of their physical and energetic states. This increased mindfulness can be incredibly valuable in physical therapy, helping clients to get the most out of their exercises and better understand how their bodies are responding to treatment.
  • Accelerated Healing: By addressing both the physical and energetic aspects of health, clients may experience faster and more complete healing. This is particularly true for chronic or complex conditions that may have both physical and energetic components.
  • Holistic Wellness: Overall, the combination of physical therapy and intuitive energy coaching can provide clients with a powerful and holistic approach to health and wellness.

By working with Glenda, clients can experience the powerful benefits of a truly integrative approach that addresses the whole person and can lead to powerful results.
