Welcome to Recharge Therapy
The only pelvic floor therapy in the area where you will spend the full hour with the therapist. No aides, trainers or Pilates instructors. Only you and the therapist working together to get better quicker.
A message about Covid-19:
We have resumed seeing patients at both our clinic locations.
Telehealth appointments are still available if that is a better option for you. We can accomplish a lot with a phone or video session. If you want more information about either option call or email. If you want to see if we are a good fit first, please schedule a free phone call to make sure the therapist has time set aside to give you her full attention.

As we begin treating a limited number of patients in the office I want you to know what we are doing to keep you safe.
As always it will only be you and the therapist working together one on one.
Patients and staff are required to wear masks as per the current orders in LA county.
There will be at least 30 minutes between scheduled clients in order to clean the clinic.
Temperature checks for all staff and clients upon entering the office.
We are wiping down all potentially touched surfaces before and after each patient. This includes the treatment table, chairs, light switches, doorknobs, bathroom toilet and sink, and anything else that may have been touched.
There is no need to wait in the waiting room and you will be welcomed into the treatment area immediately.
We ask each person to wash their hands when they enter the clinic. Please do not wear gloves in the clinic unless they are a new, clean pair, but wash your hands upon entering and wash again or use hand sanitizer provided before you leave. If you feel more comfortable wearing gloves, we will provide you with a new pair of disposable gloves for your time in the office.
The therapist will wash their hands prior to working with you.
Patients will need to fill out a symptom questionnaire prior to their appointment to screen for any possible COVID-19 related symptoms.
We have air purifiers in the treatment rooms and UV lights to sanitize surfaces between clients.
As always, please cancel your appointment if you have any symptoms of illness.
Also, be aware that this is likely the scheduling and clinic procedures for the foreseeable future. We do not know how long this virus will be a risk in our community and world and our highest priority is always your health.

Recharge Therapy is changing the way physical therapy is delivered. We set ourselves apart by providing one-on-one physical therapy treatment sessions with a licensed physical therapist each time.
You will never be treated by an assistant, aide, athletic trainer or technician.
This ensures you have the highest quality care in order to achieve your goals in the shortest amount of time possible.
Most patients feel a difference after the first session and many are better in 3-6 sessions.
Unlike many other PT clinics that require you to come in 2x/week and you may just be doing exercises on your own during that time, you will never be left alone at Recharge Therapy.
At Recharge Therapy you will never be left alone during your therapy session. The therapist will not be working with you and other patients at the same time. Each session you are working with the PT the entire time.
We believe in a lot of education to help you understand your condition and how to heal.
Because of this very individualized approach to physical therapy care we do not accept health insurance, although many of our clients are able to submit their superbill to their insurance company and receive some reimbursement. We are able to guide you through that process. Payment is due at the time of service in the form of cash, check, credit card, FSA or HSA.
A colleague of mine made this cute video that explains what women's health therapy is and why we do pelvic therapy. Enjoy and spread the message!
