Anna Hartman MS, ATC, CSCS, PMA-CPT
The bottom line is, I truly love helping people. My work has always been fulfilling because I know I’ve been a part of someone finding a better place in themselves.
Every day demands that I critically think through injuries and patterns in order to create successful manual therapy and movement intervention programs that my clients will do and love.
These programs not only improve performance and make an impact in my clients’ lives, they also allow them to experience well being through movement. And this is why I do what I do.
At the end of the day I feel most proud of having an authentic unique approach to helping people find freedom from their pain, injury and stories; helping them to find a sustainable and progressive path to their full potential.
About my work:
Very likely the primary thing that sets me apart from other clinicians and movement therapists is my breadth of knowledge and the way I apply it.
Having started my professional career as an Athletic Trainer, I understand the demands of an athlete in competition and in the daily grind preparing for competition. For the past 13 years I’ve continued to dive deep into a variety of methods, most of which are driving the professional community of rehabilitation and performance specialists in the way of physiology, kinesiology, functional anatomy, and performance-based science.
What allows me to integrate and utilize methods ranging from basic rehabilitation and joint function to visceral manipulation and movement practices (Pilates, yoga, and strength training) is being able to see the links within movement patterns and unhealthy strategies. As a natural problem solver I have a very investigative style that, coupled with a well-developed eye, experienced touch, and clear communication allows me to craft creative solutions to complex issues.
My approach is always evolving because I am always learning, but the foundation of my practice is consistent. Trust. TRUST in the body and in the science, TRUST in the methods I use, and the TRUST I cultivate with my clients. This never changes.
Anna has been my go-to for over 10 years. She is one of the best hands-on therapist I have ever worked with during my time in the NFL. I have enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone that wants to feel better and perform optimally.Billy Cundiff
