What People Are Saying
“Thank you, I was super impressed with your holistic approach and understanding of my situation. It’s like finally somebody gets the big picture too!“
Mother of High School
"My husband and I noticed that our daughter was feeling extremely stressed when it came to meet days as a cross country runner. We knew there were some mindset things going on, but she wasn't really open to getting any advice from her parents—you know how it goes. That's when I met Dr. Laurel. After chatting just one time, I knew she could provide the help our daughter needed. I'm so glad we hired her because the results have been amazing. Now, our teen is excited for every race. Plus, she PRed on her home course two weeks ago. The difference has been amazing! Don't think about it, hire her now!"
"Dr. Laurel was very helpful in helping me with my hip/glute pain! I’ve had off and on pain in the area and have been limited in distance running which has been frustrating. In only a few sessions with Dr. Laurel, I am now able to run more freely without being limited by pain. I had so much fun running the Bay to Breakers recently and didn’t even think about my pain. Worth every second!"
"Dr. Laurel has first-class expertise on how to relieve pain to help you return to your sport quickly and at a high level, her patient treatment manners made me IMMEDIATELY feel comfortable working with her without question. In one session she immediately diagnosed a lingering issue and recommended a rehab protocol that included strengthening and stretching which has yielded a relief from the pain I've experienced. Without question, there is no other PT provider and coach for me going forward."
"I had the opportunity to work with Bay Laurel Athletics on mental performance as a professional ballet dancer with dyslexia, dyspraxia, and ADHD. Sometimes, I feel like I have tried everything to enhance my performance. However, Laurel's knowledge and expertise are truly remarkable. She helped me discover new effective strategies to enhance my mental performance. Laurel's personalized approach and understanding of my unique challenges allowed her to provide me with innovative tools and techniques. She showed great respect for my journey and offered such kind and generous support throughout our sessions. I highly recommend working with Laurel at Bay Laurel Athletics to experience the transformative impact she can have on your performance or that of your children."
"It has been great working with you - I've learned a lot about channeling my body's natural ability to heal through the therapy we've done."
10 Year Old Athlete
"My life was very hard. I couldn't keep up with my PE classes. I went through lots of pain while trying to get my miles done. It was very stressful becasue I knew I could do a lot better. It's much easier to get my stuff done now. I feel like I'm better at doing lots of stuff like running. I can do lots of things now. I reccomend Dr. Laurel."
Extreme Sports Athlete
"I am an extreme sports athlete. Before meeting with Dr. Laurel, my right elbow was a constant source of pain due to a small tear. Hand & wrist movements constantly hurt & my hands were falling asleep with no end in sight. This was limiting my ability to perform my sport and was limiting even simple things in my life like getting dressed-taking a shirt off and on and putting on a backpack. It was frustrating after seeing specialists who said there was nothing to do but live with it. Dr. Laurel showed me that there was hope and there was a real solution which was a relief.
After just the 1st treatment with Dr. Laurel my hands did not fall asleep while lying down, sleeping, driving, anything with my hands in an elevated position. Tension was released from upper forearm that was usually constant. Pain and pressure was diminished which allows me a pain free & active lifestyle as a high level athlete. Thank you Dr. Laurel."
“Laurel is the best physical therapist I’ve ever had and I’ve had a lot of therapy before.”
