“As a professional dancer, I have seen many people over the years to help me with various injuries. Dr. Melanie Carminati is simply the best person I have ever worked with. Melanie has helped me with my alignment using Pilates, Craniosacral Therapy, Pelvic Health, and hands-on manual neuromuscular PT modalities to help alleviate my pain. I got lots of new imagery to work with at home and in the dance studio. Melanie is incredibly precise, intuitive, and draws on in-depth knowledge of the human body as a Doctor of Physical Therapy. I felt instantly comfortable with the openness, warmth, and perceptiveness to the subtle shifts in my emotions, and psychosomatic experiences. I am just so grateful to have whole-body experts like this in my life. Melanie is incredibly grounding to me.”
