Meagen received her Master’s degree in physical therapy in 2000 from Simmons College in Boston, MA. Approaching every interaction as an opportunity to listen and to learn, cumulative experiences in various health and wellness settings over the years have exposed her to new ideas and approaches in solving complex health and movement puzzles encountered in clinical and life situations. Combining her PT training with eastern philosophy and yogic studies helps to inform her unique approach to health and wellness and supports clients with both acute and chronic movement and pain challenges.
Following her path to merge the science and art of healing has been an intensive study both professionally and personally. Understanding how each of the systems of the human body interact and affect the others in establishing and maintaining a healthy, balanced state is the foundation of her practice. This is supported by her commitment to continuing education with a focus on manual skills, including Upledger Craniosacral (CST), Barral Visceral Manipulation, and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) through the Institute of Physical Art (IPA). Meagen has found many of these techniques to support the clients who work with her, including people with musculoskeletal and neurological diagnoses, chronic pain, pelvic floor pain & dysfunction, pre and post-natal challenges.
In addition to teaching private and group yoga classes and workshops since 2006 and earning a certification in Professional Medical Yoga Therapy in 2014, many of the teachings within the Iyengar yoga system, including breath and mindfulness practices, are a natural fit for Meg’s approach to PT. Above all she has learned that being a dedicated student of yoga is most significant in supporting her own health, and she’s happy to be able to share this with others.
