I have been utilizing the services of Balanced Movement Studio for years. I cannot say enough about Elizabeth and Brian. I am primarily a cyclist, road and mountain bike. I have had numerous injuries, particularly in the hip area. Elizabeth is very knowledgeable in structuring exercise programs that target the hip musculature, which has helped me to avoid injury. She is an adept educator, and helps you maintain proper form. There are times when I do push myself too hard, and Brian is there for physical therapy. His knowledge of anatomy and physiology, coupled with his personality, make him an excellent practitioner. He is patient and he listens to your concerns in order to get to the root of your issue. From there, he uniquely helps you to understand the issue and works with you to modify movement patterns to alleviate pain, and correct the problem. No matter your age, your activity level, or what type of injury you may have, BMS is an excellent resource.

With professional guidance from Elizabeth and Brian I have transformed my running form. The whole body approach to healthy form gave me strength to better my running performance. After 3 years I am still challenged with new dynamic exercise routines. With an entire package of wellness experts dealing in Yoga, Chiropractic, Message and more you can always be sure and find assistance for your health concerns.

Balanced Movement Studio is a tool box I love to use. From personal training for fitness with Elizabeth, to personal training to overcome injury with Brian, from massage with Suzanna, to yoga classes with Scott, it's a place I keep going back to for exactly what I need, and sometimes for something new! The staff is like family and that really shows in the way they operate. I highly recommend them.
