Michelle Walz, MPT

Michelle is a licensed Physical Therapist and certified Therapeutic Yoga Instructor with a gentle treatment approach that integrates mindfulness, yoga, and holistic care into physical therapy. She provides a safe space that allows her patients to feel seen and heard. The type of yoga she offers is accessible to all patients, supporting them on their unique healing path.

Her treatment approach combines gentle movement, postural alignment, breathwork, and meditation to treat the whole person. Michelle cares for patients with gentleness and empathy; her approach is rooted in understanding from her own lived experience of pain and anxiety.

This approach can help many people with chronic pain and disease who have not otherwise been able to achieve relief. Many people have a nervous system that is on high alert, which can feed their experience of pain. True healing occurs by finding balance mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. When movement and stillness are coupled with breath, the nervous system learns to calm itself, assisting the body’s natural ability to heal.

Michelle has been helping patients achieve their goals for over 20 years. She received her master’s in Physical Therapy at the Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences in Rochester, Minnesota in 2001. She is certified in several styles of yoga (Radiant Health Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga, Accessible Yoga) and she is an Integrative Wellness and Life Coach.

Michelle specializes in helping her patients with:

  • Chronic pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Joint hypermobility
  • Tension headaches
  • Sacroiliac joint pain
  • Pain conditions related to stress & anxiety
  • Conditions that require a gentle approach

When Michelle is not working, she enjoys spending time in nature, walking, beachcombing, or reading a good book.

She looks forward to making a genuine connection with you, and helping you make the positive shifts in your life that you’re hoping for—and often, much more.

What Patients Are Saying

“Physical therapy had brought no relief until I met Michelle. She listened intently and did a thorough evaluation, and her skillful treatment was highly effective. I’ve been walking pain-free for over two years now. I’m very grateful I finally found Michelle; my life is so much better now!”

– 

“Michelle has been an excellent resource for me. I found the incorporation of yoga positions in my therapy to be especially helpful. She has great communication skills and maintains a very calm and positive spirit when providing guidance and instruction.”

“Michelle will accommodate those who may require it, she is never out of reach. I would start these sessions wobbly, dizzy, and anxious. One hour later the anxiety was gone, and my balance had markedly improved. The breathing techniques taught also helped bring down my blood pressure.”
