Our Mission
Catalyst Physical Therapy & Wellness will be driven by a single mission:

To make life easier, more comfortable, and improve health through proper treatment of the body.

We know we’re only given one body and one life, so we should treat it right and with respect. When robbed of our ability to perform at an acceptable level, we need guides to get back on track.  When striving to achieve greatness, we need coaches that understand how to challenge appropriately.  Our rehabilitative/fitness professionals offer services and products that will help all ages learn to love their bodies while respecting the power of positive attitude.  We will respect medicine and techniques from all areas of the world to create a package that is tailored to your specific needs.  If you feel we can’t help you, we promise to find somebody that can.
