Physical Therapists

  • Tiana Werber was inspired to become a physical therapist while working after college at the Pediatric Pain Rehab Center in her native state of Massachusetts. She graduated from Harvard in 2009, focusing on evolutionary biology and photography, and received her physical therapy doctorate from UCSF in 2014. Certified in functional manual therapy through the Institute of Physical Art, she has branched out to include pelvic floor and visceral manipulation techniques in her whole-body approach. Her passion for pelvic health arose in her journey to motherhood. She has developed perinatal workshops, constantly modifying content as this amazing field continues to evolve. Tiana believes a PT’s role is not to mold patients into healing, but to be receptive to their body’s stories and facilitate their connection with their own physical being. In doing so, she strives to paint a picture of optimal health and physical function that is unique to each person.
