WHY CHOOSE US

Our holistic approach means that we don’t chase pain or “fix” people; we treat dysfunction, listen to your goals and needs, and treat with a whole-body approach. As Dr. DuFlo delved further and further into treatment of pelvic pain and dysfunction, as well as prenatal and postpartum care, it became exceedingly obvious that full healing is a collaborative approach that requires nutrition and bodywork in addition to physical therapy. We would be happy to provide reading resources and peer-reviewed evidence for this collaborative and dynamic approach. Our meticulously curated team of professionals were sought out by Dr. DuFlo specifically because they are highly educated, skilled at their unique crafts, and bring a unique approach to healing. As you follow your own unique path to healing, you may choose to seek one, or all, modalities, or we can help refer you to other providers.

Indigo’s model is based upon the relationships with our clients and the time available to spend with them. As a concierge physical therapy and integrative health practice, we are available in off-hours for phone and e-mail communications, we respond timely to our clients needs, have the ability to flex our hours and schedule to help our clients get the treatment they need quickly. As the models for healthcare change, Indigo is on the forefront of the future of healthcare, putting the client first.

We are magical unicorns. But we are also highly trained specialists in pelvic floor dysfunction, inclusive but not limited to sexual dysfunction, pelvic pain, endometriosis, fertility, incontinence, pregnancy-related issues and pain, bowel issues, sexual trauma and general women’s and men’s health issues.
