BREATHING, CORE, AND POSTURE: WHY YOU SHOULD INTEGRATE ALL THREE

Sep 15, 2023
In the world of health and wellness, we often hear the terms breathwork, core stability, and posture tossed around. These concepts are often trained separately, which can initially be necessary to help…

HEART DISEASE LINKED TO LONELINESS SIMILAR TO SMOKING

The year 2020 has challenged us in multiple ways, but one of the most obvious ways has been loneliness and isolation. This month at PT360, we are looking at ways to keep our hearts healthy.  We know the basics, such as movement, avoiding smoking, and eating healthy.  But did you know that loneliness…

MANAGE STRESS & IMPROVE HEART HEALTH WITH EXERCISE

As the month of Valentine’s Day, February is usually filled with romantic (and sometimes edible) images of hearts. Perhaps not so coincidentally, February is also American Heart Month and is an opportune time to refocus on our heart health.   There are many factors that influence our cardiac function,…

TEN TIPS FOR GOAL SETTING & INTENTIONS

It’s a new year, which means new goals, resolutions, and intentions!  A New Year also means pages turned, fresh starts, and brand new beginnings. The start of the year is the perfect opportunity to ditch old habits, and establish new routines.  As a Health Coach, one of the things I discuss with my clients…

GETTING OUT AND STAYING SAFE THIS WINTER

There’s no doubt in my mind that most Vermonters will find themselves outside a lot this winter.  Vermonters usually make the most of the four to five to almost six months of cold, snowy weather, but with the required social distancing this year, it’s very likely that many more of us will spend time…

LEND A (SOCIALLY DISTANT) HAND THIS WINTER

Winter in Vermont can be a magical time. I’ll always remember walking through town last January and taking in all the winter activities going on around me; kids sledding on the hill in front of the church, families ice skating in the park, and cross country skiers breaking trails in the fields behind…

GIVING THANKS FOR THE HERE & NOW

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. I get giddy about it like little kids do about Christmas morning. But I can’t help myself; it’s typically the first time I see my parents and siblings after a few months. I look forward to the good food, warm drinks, and snuggly cold weather, and I typically…

FINDING THANKFULNESS AMIDST THE CHAOS

This year has definitely been a chaotic one, hopefully the most hectic that I will ever experience in my life.  From the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic struggles to the social justice inequities coming to the forefront to the presidential election and the resulting divisiveness & discord…

WHAT I ENJOY THE MOST ABOUT PHYSICAL THERAPY

As a child growing up, I accidentally dropped one of my father’s heirloom silver pocket watches down the stairs. I stood frozen in time as the watch tumbled down the stairs bursting open, spewing gears and springs everywhere.   Growing up with parents as engineers, I always took an interest in “how…

FIRST YEAR REFLECTIONS

With National Physical Therapy Month, I wanted to reflect upon my first year as a practicing clinician and share some of my experiences with all of you - what it is like to be a new grad, some of the ups, downs, and everything in between.   This first year practicing as a physical therapist has certainly…

LIFE AS A PHYSICAL THERAPIST ASSISTANT

Being a Physical Therapist Assistant at PT360 affords me a great deal of autonomy, for which I am incredibly grateful as others in my profession may not have the same opportunity.  Physical Therapist Assistants (PTAs) work under the supervision of a Physical Therapist (PT) to provide treatment and help…
