Why Juniper?

Juniper Physical Therapy is simply named after a family dog that was named after a tree.  Juniper, the dog, is a healthy and active teenage dog who loves people food and warms your heart with her sincere, slightly awkward hugs.  Juniper, the tree, is a unique tree with a twisty trunk that becomes more beautiful as it ages.

Juniper, the dog and tree, is how I strive to be and is what I want for each of you.  I want to help you be comfortably active so you can enjoy your life, be kind and become more beautiful as you grow older.
