I started Integrated Physical Therapy & Pilares at the end of 2011 with a goal of providing one on one care to patients using my manual therapy skills along with the Pilates exercise training. In 2013, I added a fully equipped Pilates studio and have continued to grow over the years. This has allowed me to provide a continuum of care. After treatment, the patients are then able to continue their strengthening journey by transferring to our Pilates wellness classes.
2. What would you tell the rest of Acadiana makes you special?
The level of training of our therapists and Pilates instructors is higher than the average. Beyond this, we work one on one with our PT patients and maintain a smaller class size with our Pilates wellness classes in order to give each individual the attention they need to be successful and prevent injury.
3. What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of my team. I have a team of intelligent, caring, and selfless therapists and instructors that continue to thrive for further education keeping the safety and happiness of each client as their goal.
4. Where do you see your organization in 10 years? What are your plans for the future?
We will be moving into our new building at the end of the month. This facility will allow us to offer more Pilates wellness classes but maintain the small group sizes. We will also continue to provide physical therapy to patients with a high quality of care as we continue to expand our knowledge and expertise. We plan to maintain the positive aspects of our business while being accessible to more individuals.
5. 1A is making an impact as we take an active role in improving the community we live in. Our members are making an impact, too! - What does impact mean to you? How is your company making an impact?
We stand in agreement with Joseph Pilates in, “Change happens through movement and movement heals”. We help impact the community by providing a place of safety for people to come and experience the movement and healing of Pilates. Whether it be through rehabilitation or our wellness program, we create an environment that allows others to gain insight on biomechanics and alignment. It’s something that can be applied to everyday life and most importantly helps improve quality of life! COME MOVE WITH US!
