The doctors and staff are exceptional. In addition to regular strengthening, I was able to have aquatic therapy which I found very helpful. Dr. LaTanis Dickens took her time to determine what I needed for my rheumatoid arthritis and worked on those areas at each session. I highly recommend this business.

Kinetic has been an incredible source of care and recovery following injury and postpartum. The customer service is consistent from the from desk to providers. My care has always felt personal and intentional. I’ve also enjoyed the cryo service or workout recovery. 10 out 10 recommend!

Simone is amazing! My stress level and tension went from an 8 to 0 during my massage. An hour of tranquility that I most certainly recommend and will schedule again. Thank you, Simone!
