Testimonials

Sabrina Vega

"For the many years I worked with Samara, there is no doubt that she is one of the best in her field. No matter what, I could rest assured that any injury I may be dealing with, will be back to 100% or even better in no time. Over the years working with Samara, she was able to work with me on almost every single part of the body. The sport of gymnastics, at any level, works the entire body and when you get to the highest level there is... its pretty tough. Samara was and continues to be great at educating  patients especially on how to listen to your body, which has benefited me every single day. I feel like Samara taught me responsibility by simply making me accountable for doing my exercises at home. That may sound irrelevant, but looking back now I can actually see the many things I learned at therapy. I can practically write a book on my experience and gratitude towards Samara but in a nut shell you would be missing out if you didn't work with her! Thank you for everything Samara! Love You!" -- Member of the gold medal USA team at the 2011 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships.

"Samara has a depth of knowledge of dancers and how they use their bodies that is unparalleled locally. She connects with her clients and makes sure they understand what to do in her office and when they leave in order to recover fully. She's great at working with young dancers preventively and when they have an injury."  -- Director of the Ballet School of Stamford

"Samara played an integral part in my ability to fulfill my dreams. From my first visit to her as a 12 year old with big dreams and a sprained ankle, all the way through my participation in the 2014 Olympics, her outstanding care always helped me to put out the best possible performance. I have had my fair share of injuries over the years, ans I cannot imagine what I would have done without Samara's treatment and guidance." - World and Olympic Figure Skater

"Samara is an exceptional physical therapist who has helped me immensely over the years with my needs as a professional ballet dancer. Having a background in dance herself, she is very adept at understanding a dancer's needs and how our bodies work. For myself in particular, it feels as if Samara has my body memorized. I have consulted with her when I have been out of town, and she has been able to pinpoint the problem. I have recommended her on multiple occasions to fellow dancers, who are always highly satisfied. I can always count on Sam to "fix" me!" -- Professional dancer and teacher
