As the co-founders of Embody Physiotherapy & Wellness, Rebecca Meehan and Susan Clinton combine their experience in outpatient and specialty PT, a dedication to pro-active preventive and wellness care, rehabilitation after injury or illness, and the ability to offer more tools to our clients through personalized, integrative, and holistic treatment and education. Their mission: Working with you after illness or injury or to PREVENT injury or problems. The goal is to help patients and clients optimize their pain free function, health, ability, and confidence in their body.
Rebecca received her BSPT from the Medical College of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University in 1982 and has been learning from her patients and colleagues, expanding her practice knowledge, and learning ways to help her clients move and be better since that time. She has ABPTS Women’s Health Specialization, and is a Medical Therapeutic Yoga® (MTY) provider and practitioner through the Professional Yoga Therapy Institute. Her interest and passion for wellness, prevention, and integrative health led to her study of MTY, as well as Bones for Life® and Franklin Method, and she incorporates this knowledge into her work with individual clients as well as in the movement and yoga classes she teaches. Rebecca believes that as “anatomy and movement experts” (APTA), PTs can provide a bridge between rehab and the gym, community fitness, yoga or Pilates classes; and the Yoga classes that she teaches offers that bridge to her students and clients. In addition to use of Yoga, Ayurvedic philosophy, Rebecca utilizes manual therapy techniques for spine and joints, visceral mobilization techniques, and varied mobility, strength, and balance building strategies to help her clients meet their goals.
