“I could not be more pleased with the entire experience of PT at Seneca Physical Therapy. I learned so much about the way I hold stress and the ways I hold my body in postures that are counterproductive. Genevieve is absolutely delightful in all ways. I would highly recommend trying PT–it was my first time!”
