HealthWell is committed to excellence. Why does that matter? Working with only experienced physical therapists in our extended sessions with focused specificity provides superior results. The level of expertise and training our therapists have means patients have a higher quality experience.
Mindy Marantz founded HealthWell to be the premier provider of excellence in neuromuscular retraining and movement. HealthWell’s philosophy is to see patients as a whole, treating you for the accumulation of your unique life experiences, and not just for today’s symptom, injury or pain.
The practice offers specific “hands-on” manual therapy including Myofacial Release, Pilates, Feldenkrais Method, Yoga rehabilitation and other new approaches in pain relief. HealthWell is a west coast hub for the Barral Method of organ specific fascia mobilization. The staff has studied the work of Dr. Jean Pierre Barral, treating patients with internal facia and neural restrictions as a result of repetitive movement, surgery, physical trauma and infection.
The advanced approaches offered by HealthWell therapists help patients understand the underlying reasons for the issues you are facing — and teach you to monitor your own body to better understand your own health.
Introducing HealthWell Physical Therapy Group Team Members.
Mindy Marantz, PT, MS, GCFP, Director
Mindy received her Masters degree in Physical Therapy from Columbia University after earning her undergraduate degree from UC Santa Cruz. Mindy was formerly the Chief of Rehab at French Hospital in San Francisco, and sat on the Board of Directors for both the National Pain Foundation, and the French-American Foundation for Medical Research and Education. She also wrote research documents and white papers for a start-up cine-MRI manufacturer in Silicon Valley.
Clinically, Mindy now focuses on Functional Orthopedics and Manual Therapy where she can utilize her broad set of advanced skills. She is certified in the Feldenkrais Method of Movement Re-education and integrates that into retraining patients with motor learning, proprioception and balance challenges. For the past ten years, she has studied Fascia through the Barral Institute, focusing on how both visceral, neural, and mechanical problems are related to fascial adhesions and disruptions. Craniosacral Therapy is part of the treatment tools she utilizes.
Mindy is recognized for her expertise in Hypermobility Syndrome and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Connective tissue disorders and their co-morbidities such as cranio-cervical instability require both academic knowledge, as well as thinking through and understanding how to carefully construct treatment programs which do not result in more injury. Mindy has succeeded in creating this environment for Healthwell patients. Formerly a competitive golfer and equestrian. she now enjoys hiking, gardening, and hobby winemaking in Healdsburg, California, where she also sees patients.
We are committed to getting optimum results for every patient.
