About Us

Our Vision

We believe that the best body moves. Over a lifetime of injuries, surgeries, over use and lack of use, movements become more difficult or even impossible. Pain and restrictions may severely diminish our quality of life. The key to improving life is to create ease, balance, grace and effectiveness of our movements so that all parts of our body cooperate to produce a flowing 'symphony' of exceptional health.

"Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself." – Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais

Our Mission

Our mission is to help you go beyond pain and movement limitations; learn new skills and recapture lost ones and discover your untapped and unrecognized abilities.

We're Green!

To ensure your comfort and safety, we avoid commercial lubricants with their potentially unsafe preservatives, fillers, and stabilizers. Instead, we use hand-crafted lubricants with a base of hemp seed and avocado oils that are full of skin-essential omega 3 oils and vitamin E. Lubricants may also contain pure organic botanical oils such as tea tree, peppermint, eucalyptus, camphor and rosemary.

Our linens are laundered in fragrance-free, phosphate-free, color-free detergents. We do NOT use fabric softeners or dryer sheets. Because many of our clients are bothered by odors, our therapists wear no fragrances, body perfumes, or scented deodorants. Finally, our therapy rooms are outfitted with High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) air purifiers to ensure that ambient air is as free as possible from dust, pollen, viruses and bacteria.

At Best Body Moves, your good health is our main concern!
