Rausch at Town Center has a hidden gem that I wish was more known because she is AMAZING! Her name is Liz Montagna and she is their yoga physical therapist. If you are limited because of chronic pain or just simply wish to try physical therapy with using your own body and mind to find balance again, she is the one to see. She is so knowledgeable, patient and caring and takes the time to hear what you need and want in your own recovery. She truly wants to help and heal. She is a true gift and I am so thankful I found her, I have lived with chronic pain for quite some time and for the first time when I met her and started working with her I have hope and ways to get through the day. Thank you, Liz! I treasure you!
I have been getting deep tissue message and yoga therapy from Liz. I've had great success in regards to increased mobility after just a few sessions with her. She is very precise in locating and releasing the right trigger points causing me pain and limited mobility. Also to add to the trigger point release, are the holistic yoga stretches she's been giving me to target all tight areas and get the best stretch I can which helps maintain the relaxed state of my muscles after extensive computer work.
I've had relief with both upper and lower tightness after working with Liz. She provides personalized care while paying attention to all the little details. She also provides me with videos of the stretches so I can review them later and work on them. Liz really cares about helping me get relief from my pain as she can empathize since she herself had to work and learn how to eliminate pain and muscle stiffness in herself. I really like that Liz can immediately zone in on how to release a problem area and come up with a game plan to continue to make that area better, more mobile and stronger.
I discovered Liz in her Yoga for Backs class and was happy with the small class size and attention she gave to each person. With my chronic back issues I have to be very careful about the exercise classes that I attend. Liz made sure I felt comfortable in class and gave me specific instructions on how to modify the movements so that I could have a pain free yoga experience. Liz is a compassionate physical therapist and really connects with her paitents. She made me feel very comfortable and at ease in my appointment and gave me in depth exercises to practice at home to strengthen my body. Her body work helped release my tight muscles and encourage my body to have proper alignment. I am so happy I found Liz and look forward to working with her this year in PT and in her yoga classes. I highly recommend Liz!
