Moving Up: We’re Moving to the 9th Floor!

Update on the move here.


As some of you may know, we have decided that we want to provide you with a larger, loftier, more spa-like space for your physical therapy treatment.  As we announced in our newsletter last week, we are moving from the 6th floor to the 9th floor!

To ensure that you have the best experience at EMH, we’re moving up to a fully renovated ninth floor that offers more amenities.  We will create e a tranquil healing center with bamboo flooring, more spacious  treatment rooms with modern furnishings,  Sonos system playing relaxing music, and nature-inspired art on our walls.  Our reception area will provide complimentary teas and coffees for you to enjoy while you wait for your next appointment or for anyone waiting for you during your appointment.  Our open plan airy gym will have more light with the greenhouse glass wall and a birds-eye view of the Upper East Side.

The best part is that as the renovation is being done now, we will never have to close for the move.  Just come up to the 9th floor starting January 4th.

We’d love to keep you updated with the renovation process.

This is one of our new treatment rooms, and as you can see, it is quite a bit bigger!

We continue to incorporate our orthopedic expertise, pelvic floor specialization and equipment such as biofeedback and MultiRadiance Laser modality to fully heal men and women with a variety of conditions. Each individualized 50 minute session  is provided by a Doctor of Physical Therapy. We offer discounted treatment packages and educational programs such as “Healthy Body After Baby” to educate and prevent future issues of new moms.

Our move in date is set for January 4, 2016, so please stop by to enjoy some tea and take a tour of our new practice.

Parents Feet and Baby Booties

This fall is turning into a busy one for us here at EMH!  Not only do we have Dr. Echenberg joining us this October, but we will be hosting an event at the end of November for new and expectant moms.  In addition to getting to meet other moms, this event will be a talk by our very own therapists, Kirsten Hober and Charissa Morrisroe on the effect pregnancy has on the pelvic floor, how your body changes both during and after pregnancy, and some exercises and posture techniques that are easy to implement while caring for your baby.
