WHY CHOOSE US

We love what we do and truly care about leading our clients towards their healing path.  For each session, we spend the entire time one on one with our clients in a private, safe and comfortable atmosphere that nurtures healing and return to function.

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 Doctors of Physical Therapy, we practice traditional medicine with our own special (magical unicorn) blend of Reiki, meditation, therapeutic yoga and exercise.

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

Indigo’s model is based upon the relationships with our clients and the time available to spend with them.  As a concierge physical therapy 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.

Dr. Samantha DuFlo, PT, DPT, Owner/Founder of Indigo Physiotherapy

Dr. Samantha DuFlo earned a Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Maryland, after which she relocated to Chicago, IL to further her knowledge and training in pelvic pain and rehabilitation.

Returning to the Baltimore area, Samantha was able to bring her unique, holistic approach to treatment of pelvic and sexual dysfunction happily to Baltimore City.

Samantha prides herself on being up to date with current research, pursuing continuing education, ongoing pelvic trends, and education of her clients so they can dispel pelvic “myths” and come to understand their own bodies and journeys to healing. As a holistic physical therapist, Samantha integrates a wide range of therapeutic techniques and a multifaceted approach to facilitate whole-body healing.

Samantha is adjunct faculty, teaching reproductive anatomy, physiology, and pathology at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine to doctor of physical therapy students.  Samantha is honored to have been asked to lecture and present to groups both small and large, been featured in podcasts, as well a featured conference speaker.  To hear more about Samantha, her background, her passion for the pelvis, women’s health, and why she chose to start Indigo Physiotherapy, you can listen to her interview here.
