“When my orthopedist suggested arthroscopic surgery for my knee pain, I contacted Nicole Mullins at Embody to see if I could avoid surgery.  Since I had previously had both my knees scoped, that was not an option I was willing to pursue.  Nicole immediately recognized that my knee pain was a result of residual compensation from a long term hip problem which had culminated in hip replacement.  She suggested a regimen of exercises to strengthen the outside of my hips which would alleviate the knee pain and she was right!  It worked like a charm and I have not had a bit of knee pain since!”

“I came to Embody suffering from long standing neck and back pain due to nerve compression. Before I saw them, I walked with my head down which severely limited my range of motion. Rachel and Nicole worked with me integrating physical therapy and yoga techniques to correct my body alignment. After this re-alignment therapy my neck and back pain was relieved, my range of motion was greatly improved and my spirits were lifted. Now I move with ease and confidence. Embody was definitely the right choice for physical therapy for me.”

     ”Thank you Dr. Sawhney for introducing me to Embody Physical Therapy and Yoga. Jenn Chang is my therapist and she has taught me so much about my body and helped me find my path to wellness after a serious automobile accident. Jenn has vast knowledge in both fields of physical therapy and yoga and showed me how to apply simple and effective techniques to my everyday life. Jenn is a great listener and a bright individual in addition to being caring and kind. Thank you Embody and thank you Jenn. You are awesome. Every time I leave your office I’m ready to charge!!! God Bless. “

“Alison McLean is an incredibly knowledgeable and kind practitioner. Combining her expertise in physical therapy and yoga instruction, she helped me find the right integrated movements to relieve debilitating pain in my back, and regain strength and flexibility. Though serious about results, Alison also brings a light heart to the sometimes frustrating healing process. I am grateful to have had her much needed guidance.

” After the very first time I used Rachel’s instruction to free up the shoulders and neck several of my students said they felt relief from persistent and long term tension and pressure. The simplicity of the poses made them useful for each and every student with a minimum of adjustment, which is great for a relatively large class. It works like magic. ”   Aliza Herbst, Yoga Teacher     Jerusalem, Israel

“Rachel’s workshops combine sound scientifically-based knowledge with the wisdom of Yoga.  Rachel is an eloquent speaker, a natural teacher and a gifted healer.  I felt like I learned more than I expected to learn in an experiential way and had a lot of fun doing it.”

“I just found out that my bone density has improved over 4% in the past 2 years.  And guess what I have been doing for the past 2 years…?  Yoga with Rachel.  This is really good news.”

Krentzman’s Yoga for a Happy Back DVD is a wonderful support for students looking for a solid, therapeutic sequence to practice at home. Research has demonstrated such a tool increases ongoing participation in a home asana practice. The DVD is laid out in a logical sequence, using three models of varying ability/mobility in order to clearly demonstrate adaptations and modifications of the asana. The two camera views give the viewer a well lit perspective of alignment, support and body placement. Divided by type of asana, each section can be part of the entire series or stand alone as a shorter practice. It was particularly nice to have a narration with a solid, professional tone and no dreamy, elongated “yoga voice”. Careful detail is given to the use of props and other supports without impeding the series progression. Especially noteworthy is the care taken to walk the student back out of the asana safely where so often the viewer in other DVD’s is left to find their way out. Next time someone you know is complaining of back pain, send them to a qualified yoga instructor and suggest they pick up Yoga for a Happy Back to find their way home to freedom of movement again!

I have been seeing Rachel for the past few months. She is simply incredible!  Her knowledge about the human body amazes me. She knows so much about back injuries and what to do to treat them.  With simple, subtle movements she is able to repair problems that have plagued me for years. She patiently guides me through exercises that leave me feeling stronger and better each week. I  am not sure how she does what she does, but I highly recommend it!

“Rachel Krentzman is a widely trusted practitioner who combines scientific knowledge with yogic intuition to provide a full complement of treatments for the back, neck and shoulder. As a “patient” with scoliosis I can attest to the skill with which she examines the spine, hips and shoulders, and prescribes appropriate exercises to release tightness and relieve pain. As a yoga instructor who learned so much from her weekend long workshop, I deeply appreciate the detailed anatomical knowledge her training as a physical therapist has given her. Rachel also has a rich background as a PurnaYoga teacher and possesses natural sympathy and kindness toward students. No wonder she is so respected in San Diego!”
