At Bodyful Physical Therapy & Wellness, we are inspired by many people in our community and would like to highlight these mentors.
Dr. Ramona C. Horton, MPT, DPT
Dr. Ramona Horton is a lead pelvic physical therapist and is well respected in the field. She teaches for Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute and has been our mentor for multiple Visceral Fascial Mobilization Courses. We have been teaching assistances for Dr. Horton multiple times and continue to be inspired by her balance of strong evidence based practice as well as her deep empathetic care as a clinician.
Dr. Susan Clinton, PT, DScPT, OCS, WCS, PAAOMPT, NBHWC
Dr. Susan Clinton is an award winning physical therapist who specializes in orthopedics and pelvic health. She co-hosts a podcast called "Tough to Treat" that provides invaluable knowledge on how to successfully assess and treat more clinically advanced cases. She encompasses a beautiful balance of advanced clinical reasoning with an approach towards her clients that continues to promote self-efficacy through careful and intentional language and wording.
Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen
Bonnie is a movement artist, researcher, educator, and therapist. She used to practice occupational therapy and is also a dancer. Born in 1941, Bonnie continues to teach and move today, and founded her own school of movement called Body-Mind Centering. We take classes with Bonnie regularly and are inspired by her ability to combine advanced anatomical knowledge with a sense of embodiment, curiosity, and discovery.
Dr. Rick Hanson, Ph. D
Dr. Rick Hanson is a psychologist, Senior Fellow of UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center, and New York Times best-selling author. He also co-hosts a podcast called "Being Well" with his son Forrest Hanson. Dr. Hanson is an inspiration and reminder of how intricately psychology is woven into the fabric of bodily experiences and is a great resource for us to be informed of this perspective. Being immersed in his work is also a reminder to refer to psychotherapists when appropriate.
