Christine Koth Holistic physical Therapist as a child
My Grandmother reliably offered unconditional love and support to others as they walked their path, found ways to make the world a little brighter each day, and sprinkled beauty everywhere she went. Just look at the way she's looking at me so sweetly in the photo above. As I watch my path unfold, I realize that all of how she was in the world has influenced my values and direction in profound ways.

I’m always looking for ways to be of service. For the last 18+ years, I have used my physical therapy practice and skills to guide people towards wellness daily. My love of projects and the creative process has led me in many social betterment directions. I have started physical therapy clinics, created a private school for children, developed an outdoor classroom at an elementary school, hosted international retreats, hosted womens' groups, started community groups and nurtured many integrated healthcare environments.  I’m always looking for ways to bring people together and create connections. As one full of ideas and curious about the thoughts of others, I enjoy conversation, contemplation and collaboration. The best possible combination of these passions come together over simple things like a book club or a philosophical conversation over tea. My quest for wisdom and inner knowing brings me to my yoga mat and meditation practice daily.

From a physical therapy perspective, my training has been focused on various hands-on techniques along with a deep understanding of vibrational medicine and biomechanical analysis. Specialized training in tennis, yoga and mindfulness brings an added edge when it comes to performance enhancement and treating the whole person.  I love solving problems and have a long track record of sucessfully evaluating my clients’ conditions and determining the true source of the problem.  My determination to collaborate with other healthcare professionals ensures you will get the care you need and nothing will fall through the cracks. It is so rewarding when I am able to help my clients, even if they have been seen by other healthcare professionals with no results.  I am always amazed at how well the body can heal when the right pieces of the puzzle are addressed.  While I know that I don’t have all the answers, I am committed to collaborating with other providers to get the best answers for your wellness.  

As I continue to practice physical therapy and connect with my family in a heart centered way, I am inspired to live out these roles with passion, joy and purpose. My hope is that by keeping it real, I might just inspire others to do the same.

Why I do what I do

You can’t take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself.

When I was in 6th grade, our classroom was visited by the local sheriff to talk to us about drugs, smoking and alcohol.  I remember sitting with acute ears as the details dripped in between all the incomplete pieces of data and experiences I had on the subject.  Empowered with this knowledge I felt courageous, like I had been given the answers for a crucial component on how to live a life of health, well-being and happiness.

In between classes and on the bus ride home, I feverishly wrote a 4 page letter to my dad with all of my fresh and powerfully potent data on smoking.  I highlighted statistics on death and illness and how, if you quit, you can heal.  I wrote about how smoking hurts not only the smoker but also those who are exposed to the smoke.  I expressed how much I loved my dad and how I wanted him to live to see me grow up and get married and have kids.  I pleaded for him to quit in my sweet naive way, from the very depths of my tender 12 year old heart.

When I arrived home from school, with my letter in hand, my legs ran with anticipation up the driveway.  As I burst through the door the letter seemed to drift effortlessly into my dad’s lap. “I wrote this for you at school today!”  He smiled and carefully opened the letter.  He read the entire thing as I sat and watched, waiting, waiting.  I was so excited to share with him all that I learned.  Surely if he knew how harmful smoking was for him he wouldn’t do it.  If not for his wellbeing, then for mine.  Out of love.

As he finished reading the last sentence, he looked up and said, “This is nice, but I’m not going to quit smoking.  I’m going to die someday anyways.”

The shock on my face is still there to this day.  I was crushed.  How could someone willingly harm themselves, do something repeatedly that they KNEW would lead to illness and a difficult life?  And if he didn’t have enough self love to care for his body, what about me?  Didn’t he love me enough to care for himself, so he can therefore care for me?  

From that point forward my paradigm shifted.  My inner self continually contemplated how someone could not care for the sacred temple that we live in, our body. How could one not see how caring for yourself is ultimately caring for those around you?  Why would you knowingly do something that is harmful?  What brings a person to that point?

This changed me.  For good.  The way I practice physical therapy, my drive to learn about and practice a deeply wellness-focused lifestyle, the desire to create a nature-based school with organic school lunch, facilitating the creation of an outdoor classroom for a local school, how I create my home, my philosophical journey into the mysteries of self love, my love of yoga and purpose in doing it all comes from this moment, in 6th grade.  

Amazing really.
