Our combined experience in outpatient and specialty PT, a dedication to pro-active preventive and wellness care, rehabilitation after injury or illness, and the ability to offer more tools to our clients through personized, integrative, and holistic treatment led to the development of Embody Physiotherapy.

Working with you after injury or illness or to PREVENT injury or problems, our goal is to help our clients optimize pain free function and overall health.

Rebecca M. Meehan

PT, WCS, PYT-C

Rebecca M. MeehanRebecca received her Bachelor's Degree in Physical Therapy from the Medical College of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University in 1982 and has been learning from her patients, expanding her practice knowledge, and learning ways to help her clients move and be better since that time. She is a board certified Women's Health Specialist, and is currently obtaining her certification and credentials as a Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY) provider and practitioner through the Professional Yoga Therapy Institute. Rebecca utilizes manual therapy for spine and joints, visceral mobilization techniques and other hands on techniques, as well as strength, mobility, and balance work to help her clients achieve their goals. She also treats children with Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Encopresis, and Incontinence, with the recognition that children are not "small adults" and benefit from specialized treatment. Her interest and passion for wellness, prevention , and integrative health led to her study of MTY, as well as Bones for Life and Franklin Method, and she incorporates this knowledge into her work with individual clients and into the movement and yoga classes she teaches. Rebecca enjoys working with Physical Therapy and other students, teaching professionals, and teaching in the community. She is a participant with the Birthworkers of Western PA, the APTA, the Section on Women's Health, and the PPTA, and teaches in the PYTI program.

In her time out of the office, Rebecca enjoys traveling and spending time with family and friends, and uses gardening, bicycling, yoga, and cooking as "therapy".
