Her treatments progress the patients through the three-part path to wellness and functional recovery: pain relief, physical rehabilitation, and injury prevention / maintenance.

- Testimonials -

“Incredibly gifted therapists! From making appointments to the therapy itself this is a top-notch practice. I got relief after only one session with Gina Yuasa and continued to improve. Gina's expertise (20 year massage therapist and now an Occupational Therapist) has provided great insight into the causes of my discomfort and she's given me effective and manageable at-home exercises. Five stars!”-Anna S.
“I had a hand injury, which limited function and feeling. I had gone Rehab OT for a year without any measurable improvement. My physician sent me to Rozanni - what a gift she has been. Not only did she make me feel comfortable about my situation but has demonstrated an incredible knowledge base as well as a sincere dedication to researching and creating the most optimal splints and exercise program. In less than two months, I have improved 75%!”-Mauricia S.
