My Practice

Better in Balance treatment room

Tara Johnson, PT


Our bodies are magnificent pieces of machinery that need all the parts and pieces to function properly so that they can work smoothly, efficiently, and freely.  Bowenwork ® and MNRI ® are both very gentle techniques that help the body to achieve this.  They effect all the systems within our body helping the body to heal and function the way it was meant to.  My background in Physical Therapy has taught me that exercise, stretching, and execution of our actions are all important in assisting our bodies to move correctly, helping prevent injury, and to function at our highest level.  Combining the knowledge gained from my career and these two techniques, I can assist your body in finding its own balance, regulation, and healing properties enabling you to have less pain, move more freely, feel relaxed, and have an general sense of well being.

My business is located on the lower floor of my home.  I have a pathway that is ADA accessible on the lower side of my house offering easy access as well as a private entrance.  I schedule my patients such that you should never have to wait and your time with me will be completely private.
