Robin Detmer, MPT

I believe in the healing potential of our bodies and souls. I am an intuitive healer with over two decades of experience as a physical therapist. In recent years my practice has expanded to fully embrace energy healing as well. As a practitioner, I hold sacred space for your healing and transformation. I believe in each of our highest potentials and help you move toward that potential. My goal is to help bring you into better alignment: physically more comfortable and aligned; spiritually and emotionally more grounded and peaceful.

Follow ups are 60 min of highly individualized attention.

Robin’s Mission

My mission is to partner with clients to make positive lasting changes to their overall health and well-being.

I do this by listening and observing closely and then designing treatments with a broad holistic view of the body and person as a whole.

I strive to make rapid and lasting changes primarily through body work, education and exercises for better alignment.

How often you are seen will depend on your needs and desires. Sometimes I need to see someone only once. Sometimes 1-2x/ week for several weeks. Some clients come in regularly for body work for maintenance.

Your plan of care will be tailored to your needs and desires, not what a doctor or insurance dictates. I do a lot more hands on body work than most PT’s and offer a five time body work series that makes dramatic changes for people’s alignment and comfort in their body.

My favorite things to help with are:

  • -prevention of pain before it starts through alignment work and strengthening of key stabilizing muscles
  • -shoulder pain including “frozen shoulder”
  • -neck or back pain
  • -headache or jaw pain
  • -chronic pain syndromes
  • -hip, SI and knee pain
  • -pain or injury in teen athletes
  • -rehabilitation after stroke

My goals are 

-to provide skilled, compassionate, and effective treatments every visit

-to help clients feel better quickly and learn to listen to the wisdom of their own bodies

-to give hands on treatments and simple home programs so that the client may thrive in a more pain free and functional state

Robin has 100% 5 star reviews on Google!

Lauren B

“Robin has magical hands in a deep intuitive knowledge of healing. Her ability to see the body holistically, considering alignment, movement patterns and tissue states gives her a unique and deep understanding of your body and why you are hurting. Robin goes after the root cause of pain or discomfort.”

Ed E

“Robin is by far the best, and most effective, physical therapist I have seen… Robin provided a very complete assessment of both the injury and the effect of that injury on the rest of the body. Likewise, the subsequent manual therapy and exercises also addressed not only the specific area that was injured, but whole-body function. Further, the emphasis of care was on improving overall functional movement. I had other doctors and physical therapists I had seen always seem to fall back on the “just don’t use it” approach when addressing my foot pain. Robin was able to help regain mobility while also working with me to adjust posture and movement patterns to prevent subsequent reinjury. I am so glad I found Robin instead of just assuming that living with the pain was going to be the new normal!”

Kris D

“I had a sore left shoulder with limited Range of motion and pain with certain movements for 7 months. Finally I went to see Robin and she expertly manipulated, massaged and mobilized the shoulder. The treatment didn’t hurt and she gave me advice about what to do on my own. It felt better when I left and I never did get in for a follow up treatment like I intended to. It has been 5 months and I have no more issues with my shoulder! I was impressed and would definitely recommend Robin. She is intuitive and has very healing hands!”

Jon M

“I have the good fortune of being Robin’s patient as well as a student.

As a Physical Therapist, Robin has a very comprehensive and thoughtful approach. She is also very intentional about offering her patients the means and methods to be successful in their own personal rehabilitation efforts.

As a Wellness Coach, Robin offers well-integrated and effective programs for gentle strengthening, core alignment, spirit mindfulness, and deep relaxation in her Mind Body Fusion classes.  I have found these classes have helped me improve my overall core strength and general body fitness.  I was not surprised by these results.  What I was delighted to find through her calm guidance is the peace and relaxation I need to handle life stresses and challenges.  I highly recommend Robin!”

Steve C

“I saw Robin because I had suffered a training injury while preparing for a running event. She was able to alleviate multiple issues which were preventing me from training (I could not even run without pain!). After the first treatment I was able to quickly progress and within days I was able to run again, and ultimately was able to participate in the running event. I highly recommend Robin – she made the effort to really understand and treat the core issues.”
