Breathe. Physical Therapy is a hidden gem! Not only do the therapists focus on your immediate area of concern but they take time to truly listen to your life in order to provide a holistic approach; fostering a healthier person inside and out. My experience has been nothing short of amazing! The art of just learning to breathe correctly has been essential to my overall well-being.

I found Breathe after being frustrated that my concerns were not being heard at other practices. After my first visit with Libby, I knew I had found the right place. My labor and delivery story isn’t the one I had envisioned, but Breathe helped me feel whole again. Then my recovery moved on to dry needling and I haven’t looked back. My career is taxing on my neck, shoulders and back… Molly knows exactly what she’s doing and I walk out of there feeling great. One doesn’t dare mention an ache, pain, pregnancy or recovery where I don’t chime in about Breathe! I even carry their cards in my wallet. My only regret is not having found them earlier!

I’ve seen multiple providers at Breathe, and they’ve all been wonderful! I’ve seen improvements in my health and symptoms since going to Breathe, and I always feel welcomed and comfortable in their space. I cannot recommend them enough!

LOVE these ladies! They care so much about getting people out of pain and ensure they are educated and empowered to heal. They were wonderful when I had postpartum issues, then I got to do dry needling for running tightness, AMAZING. Yesterday, I slept terribly due to some pain and I called first thing and they got me in for dry needling LITERALLY the next hour. Best night’s sleep in SO long! Thank you SO much gals, I sing your praises ALL THE TIME.

I was seeing Lily Gasway in person until we had to go to telehealth due to COVID-19. I never would have believed it but telehealth with Lily works GREAT. My knee problem keeps improving.  I am running with no pain for the first time in over a year!  I am so happy. Thank you Lily!

Amy Kepes

Personalized with whole body care. Most important for me, learning to BREATHE in a way to benefit my whole., both physically and mentality. Putting me in control with guidance from supportive, knowledgeable, down to earth care. Can’t leave out- learning about Urban pole walking! Such a game changer!!

Theresa S.

I was so grateful to be able to stay in contact with Dr. Liz via telehealth during these uncertain times!  We were able to continue to keep me on the path to healing my body, as well as address new aches and pains that arose due to working from home (aka my recliner).  With two kids at home, telehealth is so convenient and Dr. Liz  is always great at considering how to adapt my exercises to fit my crazy life at home!

Dana Allen

The moment I walked into the door at Breathe, I knew it could only be the right decision. The atmosphere was that of a calming, relaxing home not a sterile office. My therapist was extremely knowledgeable and was so informative of how we were going to treat my issue as a team. I walked away feeling confident that my pain and issue was going to be resolved. I will be referring others to Breathe!

Mary B.

As an LMT and spa owner, I’m confident sending out clients to all of the PTs at Breathe. We first learned of these amazing women because so many of our clients received excellent results from their physical therapy at Breathe.

Cassie S.

Breathe is not your typical physical therapy visit. They listen and adjust to what you need that day and create complimentary exercise plans to go with what you need. We didn’t spend the entire session doing the same exercises. Instead, we focus on things I can’t do at home like dry needling or loosing muscles I can’t get to easily. Truly, my experience was life changing and I’m so thankful to have found Breathe!

Kayla V.

This team of physical therapists do a great job providing care that’s personalized and empowering. Love Breathe!

Elizabeth S.

Breathe has empowered me to take control over my mental and physical health. Telehealth appointments have been such a blessing during this pandemic. Same great results with the benefit of staying home!

Audrey VanKamen

I went to Libby and Kaylee for help with a postpartum diastasis recti but got so much more than expected. Not only did they help me learn how to truly stabilize and strengthen my core, but I learned how pelvic floor dysfunction impacts endometriosis and that there are treatment options that can help manage the pain.

Eve W.

I can’t say enough positive here! Libby has such a strong reputation in the DM area and she lived up to it. She has an uncanny ability to diagnose and treat a problem. I’d recommend her and Breathe. to anyone!

Nate R.

Having the option for physical therapy via telehealth was priceless.  The expert assistance allowed me to have my new symptoms/developments addressed rather than allowing the pain to continue and develop into something more permanent while waiting for the opportunity for an in-person visit.  My therapist was able to demonstrate the prescribed therapy exercise plus see if I was doing the movement properly and then followed up with an emailed instruction for me to follow until our next visit.  I found the telehealth visits very helpful.!


My telehealth visits with Dr. Kristen were a literal sanity saver! It was so easy to be able to put the baby down for a nap, and hop online with her while I hid in my closet. She was able to help me through some lingering issues I’ve been having by giving me a very detailed and easy to follow at-home treatment plan, and other some other options, all from the comfort of my own home. It was a great way to check in with her and get a tune up safely and very efficiently! Thanks, Dr. Kristen!
