Physical Therapist, Massage Therapist
Caitlin earned her Doctoral degree in Physical Therapy from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ. She is also certified in Therapeutic Massage and Health Education with additional training in Craniosacral Therapy and pain science education.
The recent development of her career in PT has emphasized aquatic therapy and her experience is primarily with patients with neurological conditions and chronic pain. Through this experience, it became evident that for many patients a more mindful, attentive, and holistic approach would be most effective. This is what brought her to The Wellness Station. She completed a CEU course with Paul McAndrew on Treating Chronic Pain in 2018 and is now integrating Feldenkrais principles into her work under his mentorship. She is very excited about this work and feels that the approach is often more effective than more traditional physical therapy interventions.
