Mindy Cohen, PT, CST, RK
Mindy’s interest in physical therapy began after a ski injury that required an anterior cruciate ligament surgical repair in 1990. She was amazed with her body’s ability to heal herself with exercise and manual therapies and her fascination with healing modalities has never faded. In 1995, she received her Master’s in Physical Therapy at Regis University in Denver, Colorado and she has been a lifelong learner, studying many types of manual therapies, exercise and meditative somatic practices over her career of 24 years. Raised in Central New York, she also lived in Crested Butte, Colorado before moving to Burlington in 1998.
Mindy has treated people of all ages, including babies, children and several centenarians. She has worked in many different settings including sports and orthopedics, acute care, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities and sub-acute rehabilitation. She developed and taught different classes, including a winter sports conditioning program at the Sports and Orthopedic Rehab Center and Experiential Anatomy and Physiology at Burlington College.
Mindy believes that you have an innate healing force that helps to heal and integrate your whole body. Her intention is to support you in your healing journey through blending manual therapies, functional exercise and educational bodywork to facilitate ease and wellbeing. She has also seen great results treating balance problems with the Otago exercise program.
In her free time, Mindy enjoys alpine skiing, waterskiing, knitting, hiking, yoga and spending quality time with her family. She also enjoys cooking and learning about nutrition and herbal remedies.
