Lori founded Health in Motion Physical Therapy + Wellness in 1999 and feels fortunate to have served our beautiful Bozeman community for more than 20 years. Her passion is to support patients navigating difficulty using a holistic approach alongside a team of experienced practitioners.
Lori graduated from the University of Evansville and then interned at Harlaxton College in Grantham, England in 1985. A passionate learner and researcher, she completed her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Montana in 2016.
Lori's gift is listening to the body's subtle, deeper structures, especially the nervous system, to support lasting balance and change. She uses Craniosacral Therapy, visceral manipulation, myofascial release and Brain Therapy to assist with spinal/cranial decompression and alignment—based on the belief that learning to move from a decompressed midline axis is important prior to strengthening. Additionally, Lori uses Laser Therapy for neuromotor re-education to stimulate muscles not firing correctly and promote pain relief, decreased inflammation and tissue healing. She also empowers patients by creating personalized at-home strengthening, lengthening and moving routines.
Lori sincerely enjoys working with challenging and stubborn issues and warmly welcomes patients from all backgrounds with all types of symptoms.
