Julie Carestio, MPT is the owner of Sage Physical Therapy and Women’s Health. She is excited to bring together her training in physical therapy, herbalism and yoga to create a unique, holistic healthcare experience for women. Pregnancy and childbirth are profound physical and emotional experiences that challenge our bodies in many ways. Julie can assist with the prevention and treatment of common issues such as abdominal wall separation, incontinence and pelvic floor weakness. Scar tissue management and breastfeeding support are other areas that can benefit from PT and herbal care. Mood, thyroid and milk production can be supported with herbal and nutritional care.
