Body Connect Health and Wellness PTs are truly the most skilled and caring in the entire DC MD VA region. They provided me with fantastic treatment that enabled me recover from my shoulder pain very quickly. They also empowered me to be able to take better care of myself, especially when I am at work. I owe a great deal of my return to an active and pain free lifestyle to them. I would recommend them above any other PT.
I have been going to Marisa for several months for Integral Bodywork. I have done rolfing, MFR, and other other fascial work previously and have NEVER had the amazing results that I have felt and seen after each session with Marisa. My movement practices have improved. My pelvis, which I thought was pretty much stuck in its place, has moved to a more desirable location. My posture is better. My body hurts less. Even though our sessions were filled with cursing (always from me), Marisa is great - she's funny, smart as hell, and approachable (even though my body really, really wants to run away from that stick she has). I may have called her a witch, but I mean that with all the love I could muster during these super-intense 2.5 hour sessions. Does it hurt? Pain is just a sensation. Does it work? Yes. Should you commit to all ten sessions? Yes. Is it worth the price? Yes. Save the money you're thinking of spending on bodywork that will help some-but-not-enough and have your body completely transformed session by session with Marisa. She's fabulous.
I was referred to Body Connect a few years ago by a physical therapist, who had also been a patient there. For several decades I had problems with my hips and left leg, a leftover from an injury I sustained when I was a teenager. Years of pt, acupuncture, Rolfing, Alexander Technique, etc. had provided some relief, but not as much as I received with the combo of pelvic floor and myofascial release I received at Body Connect. I returned to Body Connect about a year ago to see a visiting Core Synchronism practitioner and haven't left. Keagha is already difficult to get in with, so I have mixed feelings in even writing about it, but Core is an amazing modality and Keagha is one of the few practitioners in the area. So, overall about Body Connect; they have a very professional office (good scheduling system and have never had a problem in submitting for insurance), their practitioners are amazing (smart, approachable) and they seem to always be ahead of the curve when it comes to new and effective modalities to bring into their practice.

I have been going to Ann and Marissa (and have used some of the other ones there too) since October 2011! I have had problems with my back and joints/muscles for many years. I did not have much movement in my lower back when I started there, now I can touch my toes!! They are both fabulous pt's and persons, lots of compassion and knowledge. The treatment is not always pleasant.... Elbows, gua sha, strong hands etc, but as I say 'No pain, No gain' And there has been a lot of gain. I know I wont get 100% good, but they keep my body better then any treatment I have tried during the past 30 years. So as long as I live here, I will keep on using them.
I had some cranial therapy done by Kelly for TMJ and the difference was like night and day. It made a huge difference, she is a very skilled therapist, definitely recommended!
