Physical Therapy Specialist & Owner of
Ananda Physical Therapy & Wellness
Dr. Maria LaPutt has a clinical doctorate in physical therapy and has over 18 years of real-world experience as a licensed physical therapist and over two decades of experience in the health and fitness industry.
Maria is not a typical physical therapist. She has gone through extensive training and continues to travel and take continuing education courses multiple times a year. She has developed a unique approach in working with the human body. She treats each person as a whole being and understands the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit. She thinks and treats out of the box and has helped multiple clients who have been unsuccessful with traditional therapy and medicine. She believes in the body’s innate ability to heal itself given the right path/guidance.
Maria’s own personal health and healing journey prompted her to become an expert therapist in the John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach®. She is also a Certified Pilates Teacher in the Polestar® Pilates for Rehabilitation system. She is a registered yoga teacher and has practiced yoga for more than two decades.
She is currently preparing to obtain her certifications in visceral and neural manipulation under the Barral institute. She has also trained with Dr. Daniel Vladeta and incorporates the OOV in her sessions. She has an understanding and training in various forms of energy work.
