Core Values


Evolution: We Believe as humans we have an inherent ability to …RECOVER from injury, RECLAIM the life we want , REGAIN our abilities, RESTORE our individual power, and trust in ourselves, RESOLVE any limitations, and EVOLVE to our maximum potential.

Integrity: Integrity comes from the Latin word “integer,” which means whole, entire, unbroken and consistent. At Bodywise, we commit to authentically, and mindfully acting in ways that reflect our values of wholism, honesty, empathy, compassion, and understanding.

Wholeness: To fully heal, we must address not only the physical limitations of pain and injury, but integrate methods which make an impact on our mental, emotional, and spiritual well being.

Mindfulness: We coach our clients on the importance of presence, how to listen to their bodies, and incorporate the felt sense of embodiment into their daily lives and activities.

Empowerment: To truly effect change, healing, and evolution, we must educate our clients about themselves in every realm of their lives, empowering them with the ability to help, and heal themselves.

Connection: Humans thrive on connection.  We are happier, healthier, and overall better people when plugged into the greater fabric of the universe. At Bodywise we believe the greatest gift of our work is the relationships we create with our clients, our co-workers, and our community.

“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.” Herman Melville

Partnership: Rehabilitation is a team effort. You and your therapist make up that team. Integrating appropriate manual interventions, and education, with the collaborative creation of successful self-care strategies that work for you, and fit into your lifestyle.

Possibility: Humans have the inherent potential to change and heal at any age.

“Dwell in Possibility”Emily Dickenson

Curiosity: As humans, we have an amazing potential to adapt, and compensate for injuries. When we reach the end of our adaptive potential we have pain. At Bodywise, we pursue the root cause of your pain or injury, not just chase your symptoms. Our therapists are skilled at reading the story your body tells through these adaptive, compensatory patterns. Then, by addressing the true origin of your symptoms, we can help you understand, reverse, and change these patterns allowing for complete recovery, and significantly reduce your risk of future injuries.

Creativity: We are each unique beings. Bodywise therapists thrive on the opportunity to work creatively with clients of all ages and fitness levels, keeping them engaged in learning about their bodies, and empowering them to maximize their potential throughout their lifetime.
