Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
Clients can sign up for our free monthly newsletter filled with educational resources on exercises and stretches they can do to maintain proper body mechanics, increase flexibility, and reduce pain.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
Our physical therapy gyms are designed to allow treatment to focus on functional body movement and mechanics. We use free weights, medicine balls, kettlebells, and other equipment that will maximize an individual's freedom of movement through an exercise, rather than gym equipment.
Our massage rooms are set apart from our physical therapy gyms to minimize noise disruption during massage sessions.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We started 11 years ago in a garage just doing physical therapy, and have grown into three facilities in San Diego and La Mesa, expanding our services to include massage, personal training, sports-performance training, group classes, and multisport coaching.
Led by Dr. Robert Lajvardi, the medical staffers at Encompass Family and Internal Medicine Group put their collective expertise together to perform cosmetic procedures and tackle pain management and preventative care. Cosmetic procedures offered by the group include chemical peels, laser hair removal, and microdermabrasion. Pain management ameliorates back and joint discomfort, and preventive care involves medically supervised weight-loss treatments, STI screenings, and time travel.
Certified massage therapist Erin Warfield Shaffer expresses her belief in holistic approaches to wellness by treating bodies to a detoxifying combination of hands, herbs, and hydrotherapy. Shaffer's four massages range from hot-stone techniques that melt tension in backs to reflexology methods that manipulate the feet in an effort to relieve pain in the rest of the body. She also cleanses bodies with such detoxification rituals as the acupoint session, a massage-like treatment that causes key points in the body to absorb healthy herbs so that clients don't have to sleep on a pile of herb-crusted halibut. The center also concocts custom facials and peels that nourish the skin with hydrotherapy, botanicals rich in Vitamin C, and other organic ingredients.
