Once upon a time (1988), when John was working in southeast Florida, and we were both affiliated with a Sports Medicine Institute, I injured my facet joint capsule, ostensibly by riding an airdyne bike which was way too big for me, and 'turtling' my head with forward posturing. Not only did John Leonard work on my neck for weeks when it was too tender for anyone else to even get near it; after it healed, he went with me to Office Depot and helped me select the proper kind of work chair and slanted desk-top to prevent me re-injuring myself from improper work dynamics. John is the most amazing physical therapist I have ever met/worked with. He can assess gait in a very brief evaluation and can even intuitively tell where a baby is hurting who cannot yet verbally communicate. Trust him to support you if you have back pain, migraines, hip issues, and any type of injury that may impair your optimal functioning. I give him my highest recommendation and wish he was still geographically accessible for both myself and to refer my clients to. Brilliant practitioner!

About me

John’s more than 30 years of specialization in orthopedics and manual therapy have resulted in his accomplished work utilizing a unique and integrated approach to assessment and treatment of neuro-musculo-skeletal dysfunction. Having owned a physical therapy private practice in Florida for over 15 years, John had the opportunity to provide services to the US Olympic Dive Team, Women’s International Tennis Association, and three local university athletic programs. Having an extensive background in manual therapeutic techniques, John’s physical therapy practice has afforded patients relief of pain and restoration of function not available through more traditional therapies.

John is always looking for better ways to treat his patients, and is constantly on the forefront of utilizing new treatment approaches and techniques. Having recently become certified in Dry Needling technique, he is one of only several physical therapists in North Carolina to offer this innovative and highly effective treatment to his clients.

Having recently become certified in trigger point dry needling technique, he is one of only a few physical therapists in North Carolina to offer this highly effective treatment to his clients. John is also a certified frequency-specific microcurrent practitioner offering a proven modality capable of creating healing benefits at the cellular level in all tissues and organ systems. These unique skills combine with John’s developed therapeutic touch and specialized manual therapy in creating his highly effective treatment approach.

In addition, years of selective apprenticeship training with indigenous elders of several cultures have resulted in John’s inclusion of energetic practices, complimentary to his clinical model, that recognize and incorporate resonance of all levels of being in the creation of health and vitality. Comprehensive integration of physiological and soul level healing is embraced with ritual and ceremony that have been recognized and practiced throughout the ages by most cultures.

The expression of health in spirit, mind, and body are the primary aim of this integrated therapeutic approach, which is unique in its offering to the mountains of Western North Carolina.
