About Us

Welcome!  Whether you need physical therapy to regain function after an injury, illness or surgery; or you need to bring strength, flexibility and balance back into your body, Essential Physical Therapy & Pilates has what you need. We believe movement heals. Transform your core.

Essential Physical Therapy & Pilates opened its doors in 2007. Locally owned and operated, we started in a small studio that accommodated one physical therapist and Pilates mat classes of eight or more students, but with the addition of more equipment, therapists and instructors, we quickly out grew that space. Currently, we have three physical therapists, four Pilates instructors and an office manager operating out of a spacious 2,000 square foot facility, which offers the only comprehensively equipped Pilates studio in central Vermont.

Our facility includes:

  • the only comprehensive Pilates studio in central Vermont
  • full-service physical therapy clinic
  • 2000 square foot studio with private treatment rooms, shower and changing area
  • reformer classes and mat classes
  • handicap-accessible ground floor


Movement heals.  So does laughter, compassion and guided, knowledgeable instruction.  With comprehensive evaluations, skilled interventions and proper instruction, we'll get you moving again--with a smile on your face.

Mission Statement

Provide the community with a safe, invigorating place to restore balance, strength and flexibility, all with respect for individual needs, compassion for their condition, and humor to get through the hard spots.
