Imagine if...

  • Your healthcare provider had the time to listen to your whole story. 

  • Your plan for healing considered all aspects of your health from the physical and emotional to nutritional and hormonal. 

  • Your provider partnered with you offering guidance & accountability, but honored your unique needs and ideas on what matters most to you 

  • The path to healing your complex health issue could be broken into simple, approachable action steps. 

  • You had the power to regain the physically active, vibrant lifestyle you've been dreaming of, but aren't sure where or how to start.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe that healing can look & feel different. 

Amelia Foster Physical Therapy combines a unique blend of integrative physical therapy & wellness coaching. This approach stems from a core belief in addressing complicated health issues from the root source, rather than only focusing on the physical body and structure.  We believe that there is incredible healing power that comes from practicing consistent principles: 

  • Moving your body often with a rich variety of movement patterns and challenges 

  • Eating whole foods and knowing what nutrition strategies work best for you and this season of your life 

  • Regulating your nervous system with strategies to reduce pain, stress, & support hormonal balance 

  • Partnering with providers who are willing to listen, guide and support you along your journey

  • Actively seeking joy, connection, and FUN as you navigate your health and learn more about your complex, amazing human body!

THREE STEP PLAN TO SUCCESS

Here's How It Works

Physical Therapy Santa Cruz

Hello!

I'm Amelia.

Physical Therapist, Wellness Coach, Outdoor Enthusiast, & Anatomy Nerd 

I bring over a decade of experience as a physical therapist, extensive training as an integrative health coach, yoga & Pilates instruction, therapeutic bodywork, and a whole lot of passion to delivering a more holistic and human-centered form of healthcare.  Specializing in the areas of pelvic health & chronic pain, I love the fascinating and complex puzzle of working towards healing from multiple dimensions of health. Each patient's story is unique, and that means their path to healing will be as well. With my training and experience, I believe I can be a trustworthy guide, but YOU are the expert in your body and mind.  Together, we'll work together to navigate the journey towards a stronger, more resilient, and truly healthy you.
