Balance Therapy

Balance is complex. It's affected by the systems governing your vision, inner ear, muscles, joints, and brain. The successful interaction of these systems depends on mobility in all three planes of motion, and three-dimensional action often becomes limited with age. We can help you counteract these limitations and adopt more functionally efficient movement patterns.

The Wellness Station offers an alternative to pharmaceutical solutions and a break from clinical environments. Your balance therapy may be covered by Medicare or insurance. And best of all, treating your balance concerns can help you meet other wellness and activity goals.

Your balance therapy will start with a thorough history and clinical evaluation. During that first meeting, we also provide a basic overview of the Feldenkrais Method. With its deep understanding of movement re-education and brain plasticity, this method is fully integrated into our approach to balance retraining. 

Balance-related conditions we treat include:

  • Gait instability
  • Mobility limitations, such as arthritis and chronic pain
  • Stroke recovery
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Vestibular disorders

Balance Services

Physical therapy with the Feldenkrais Method is a uniquely effective way to treat balance disorders, enjoy a high quality of life at any age, and improve overall well-being.  A typical course of therapy involves 8 to 12 individual sessions, plus tailored lessons to complete at home.

In addition to one-on-one and group therapy, The Wellness Station offers fitness classes targeted to balance concerns.  Our goal is to help people progress from individual treatment to group classes that offer progressive challenges. 

Our UpLift Aerial Yoga & Fitness program is particularly beneficial for people with balance concerns. Uplift Aerial allows participants to safely explore strength and movement challenges, stimulating balance responses without the risk of falling.

  • Aerial movement with silks is a modality to complement and, for me, replace yoga. While being supported as much or as little as needed, it gives the benefits of movement, balance and strengthening exercises.”

  • I am a 72 year old male who has always been active. Having initially gone to Paul because of lower back pain, I was surprised to find out that he not only helped me learn how to avoid the pain but also to improve my balance.”

  • Our bodies crave new sensations, and I love exploring the different relationship with gravity I have with the support of the silks. It’s like swimming on land. There’s a buoyancy that makes me giddy with delight.”
