Tori Hindson Boise Physical Therapy

Tori has been practicing physical therapy for over 15 years. She completed her Masters degree at Northwestern University in 1997 and also has a Masters degree in Exercise Physiology from Miami University. Since then she has practiced in a variety of settings, including inpatient rehabilitation, acute care, head injury rehab, home health, and out-patient sports rehab. Most recently Tori employs a distinctly hands-on approach of manual physical therapy, incorporating soft tissue massage, myofascial release, joint mobilizations, muscle energy techniques, counterstrain, and more indirect energy techniques.

She believes there is no substitute for the power of touch. Tori’s mission is to bridge the gap between her strong diagnostic tools and techniques of Western physical therapy and the more subtle yet profound energy techniques based in Eastern philosophy. Tori is skilled in treatments from head to toe, including but not limited to headaches, TMJ, cervical and low back pain, pelvic dysfunction, plantar fascitis, and postural imbalances.  Come experience a unique and effective style of treatment!

Additionally, Tori completed a two year Wholistic Nutrition program from the local Wellspring Schools of Healing Arts. The program offered a unique approach that combines traditional Western nutritional studies with Wholistic Nutrition and Eastern (Chinese) energetics to effectively determine the individual nutritional needs of the client. Tori believes that all whole food has deeply nourishing, energetic properties and that there are no “bad” foods or “best” ways to eat. Instead, her recommendations are matched to the individual needs rather than concepts of “good” and “bad” foods and diets. She is thrilled to incorporate this knowledge and wisdom into her wellness-based physical therapy practice.

Tori is honored to be one of the many talented and passionate practitioners here at Sage Yoga & Wellness. And like most of the other practitioners, she holds a deep passion for the practice and study of yoga. She has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and has taught for 3 years. Although not currently on the regular schedule, Tori may substitute for classes when needed.

Phone: (208) 860-4816

Bonnie’s practice is informed by the lineage of Saul David Raye through the Ritam School of Healing Arts, with whom she studied in immersion in 2009 and 2010. She is on faculty at the Idaho school of massage therapy, teaching yoga, meditation, Qi gong, Reflexology, and Asian bodywork.

Thai yoga bodywork is shared for the purpose of harmonizing and balancing energies in the body: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Utilizing massage techniques, the sen lines are palpated; utilizing marma/ acu-pressure points, vital centers of the body are tonified; placing the body in passive yoga postures, muscles and connective tissue are gently stretched and lengthened; guided by the breath, the meditative state of calm alertness permeates the whole being. And of course, the spearhead for all healing is carefully cultivated in a space grounded in compassion and loving -kindness.

Thai yoga body work is outstanding in its capacity to assist the body in transitioning between seasons, for rebounding after illness, for maintenance in achieving fitness goals,  to reduce stress, and to simply feel vital,strong, and alive!
