Arlene has been a physical therapist for over 15 years with extensive experience in neurologic, orthopedic and pelvic health and rehab in men and women. In taking a more holistic approach to patient care, she has expanded her manual therapy skills to include craniosacral therapy and visceral manipulation into her care.

Arlene received her doctorate degree in physical therapy from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA in 2001. She has received her orthopedic rehab training from a range of sources including the Kaiser Orthopedic Mentorship Program and the Institute of Physical Arts.

An early realization for me as a practitioner is that a client is greater than their hurting parts.  Physical therapy as an art requires one to be open minded and quickly adaptable.  As a lifelong learner, I am dedicated to gaining insights to what makes our bodies tick, what trips the body up and what can bring the body to better healing and expansive function.

Beyond physical therapy, I enjoy reading and exploring local bookstores.  My (inadvertent) sport of choice is running after my sweet and buzzing 4-year-old.  I like to exercise my sweet-tooth sensibilities in the kitchen and strive to stretch my wanderlust on an airplane.
