Heather Mims, PT, DPT, PMA®-CPT

Physical Therapist, Doctor of Physical Therapy, PMA® Certified Pilates Teacher

Heather’s 20+ years as a dancer and choreographer, 11 years teaching Pilates, and 10 years of yoga practice have enabled her to develop a unique approach to incorporating breath, core strength, and somatic awareness into her patients’ rehabilitation. She is particularly interested in the role of posture, proximal hip, and core strength for prevention of injury in runners, dancers, yogis, and athletes.

Heather offers a Pilates-based approach to physical therapy rehabilitation and wellness that is also informed by her many years of teaching dance and creative movement. She blends the mind-body awareness, conscious control, and focus that are emphasized in the Pilates Method with hands-on manual therapy techniques for release of myofascial and joint restrictions to allow each patient to discover freedom of movement, healthier biomechanics, and functional stability.
