frequently asked questions

Can I still take a class if I’ve never done Pilates or Yoga before?

Yes! We offer a free 30 minute intro session for both our Pilates and Yoga classes so that you can be introduced to some of the movements and learn what to expect in the class setting.  If you still feel uncertain, you can certainly take 1-2 private sessions with the goal of moving into group classes.

 

Do you accept insurance for your Physical Therapy services?

No, we do not accept insurance for our PT services, but we are happy to provide you with the necessary forms to submit to your insurance company for out-of-network benefits. Having both worked in insurance-based practices, Sara and Alix have decided to not accept insurance in order to provide you with the best one-on-one care possible and to not feel limited by insurance restrictions.

Do I need a prescription to start physical therapy at your studio?

New Jersey is a Direct Access state - clients can start physical therapy without having to wait for a prescription from a doctor. If you are experiencing symptoms now, there is no need to wait.  If your plan of care exceeds 30 days, you will need to acquire a prescription at that time.

 

Why is Physical Therapy at your studio different?

Our PT is different in many ways compared to traditional insurance-based PT, mostly because we only provide one-on-one care and have a heavy focus on manual therapy.  Myofascial release is a large part of our practice and focuses on finding the actual source of your pain (even if it’s in a completely unrelated area to where your pain is) and not just working on the immediate “problem” area. Since we are not limited by insurance company protocols,  we are able to provide our clients with unique treatment plans that address their specific needs. Results from this type of program are often times achieved more quickly and are more effective because of the high level of individualized attention and manual therapy you are receiving.
