We Value Your Time

The average physical therapy session lasts only 30 minutes. How effective can your Physical Therapist be in 30 minutes?

You want the most effective and efficient treatment, right? The formula that works best for us and our Physical and Performance Therapy clients is 60-90 minute, one-on-one sessions with your Physical or Performance Therapist, which allow us enough quality time for bodywork, movement training, and listening.

 Don’t get cheated out of your Physical Therapy session. Find out why time matters HERE.

With the right TOOLS, we can help the Boys & Girls Club of New Britain BUILD BETTER ATHLETES.
