“A physiotherapist has the brain of a scientist, a heart of a humanist, and hands of an artist.”

I am so happy I chose to work with Nara. Her knowledge, expertise, and compassion make her an ideal physical therapist. Nara doesn’t simply treat symptoms; she attacks the root of the problem. Her kindness, superior skill and accessibility make her a rare find.
Unfortunately I’ve had several injuries over the past couple of years that have required the services of a Physical Therapist – but thankfully I’ve had Nara Yoon to turn to for my rehabs. Nara was caring, attentive, and dedicated to getting me all the way back from my injuries. She took her time in explaining her plan for doing the rehab work, paid attention to my needs, concerns, and progress, and provided visual aids to assist me in doing needed exercises at home to augment the work we did together. Although I can’t say I’m looking forward to any future muscle pulls or injury I might have, I do feel good knowing I have Nara in my corner in case I do!
I am a senior citizen who underwent double hip replacements about a year apart, and both times, I was under the care of Nara Yoon, for physical therapy which lasted for several weeks. Both my surgeon and my PCP were totally satisfied with Nara’s care for me. She is a very dedicated, extremely knowledgeable person, and a great asset to her chosen profession. I am very pleased to recommend Nara Yoon to you.”
I have been coming to PhysioElements for over a year and I never could have imagine how much I would learn about my body. I have been a patient with Dr. Nara Yoon and Dr. Kat Castro and both teach me something new about my body every single time we work together. It’s like I’m given a key to unlock a new muscle, each session is specifically tailored to my body’s needs. I am amazed at how the smallest adjustment yields great results and progress in how my body feels and moves. I also started taking the pilates group classes- and again each week I learn how to awaken and move a new muscle in my body. This new strength and flexibility translates into all areas of my life- I have gotten deeper into my yoga poses, better posture while sitting and driving, I am more mindful when I carry and lift my children. I can’t say enough good things – they are smart and kind women and I am so grateful that I found them and continue to strengthen and challenge my body.
There aren’t enough words to describe how blessed I am to have found Physical Therapist, Nara Yoon, but perhaps, I can communicate in some small way the benefit I have found in being a client. On August 2012, there was a fire in my house and I had to jump out of the second floor window. As a result, I needed to have several surgeries, which included my spinal area and elbow. Even though my back was severely injured, my focus was my elbow, which was left after surgery in an awkward and non functional angle. I couldn’t extend my arm or flex it, leaving me incapacitated when it came to even the simplest household chores as it was my right hand and arm that were affected. Even personal care and hygiene was difficult, leaving me feeling helpless and discouraged. So, it was in this condition that I first met Nara. I found her to be not only skillful and knowledgeable, but kind and compassionate. She showed great patience each time we had a session, and encouraged me to try just a little harder, until I was ultimately successful. I will never forget the moment when I was finally able to touch my face and the joy I felt at the prospect of again becoming more independent. As a busy mom, I literally had no time for being incapacitated and so Nara, in way, helped me to regain my not only my independence but my role as a caregiver. So it is with wholehearted enthusiasm that I recommend Nara as a Physical Therapist. I think that anyone would be fortunate to have her working with them.
Thank you! Thank you so much for everything you did to help my ankle recover! You are sweet and patient and the best physical therapist I’ve worked with! On Thanksgiving morning, in 25 degrees weather, I was able to run in a 5K Turkey Trot. I finished in my best time yet and I couldn’t have done it without you!
