Michele Forsberg PT, MS
Michele specializes in helping those who have struggled with long standing “mysterious pains” that others can’t seem to figure out; most often these folks who have digestive/abdominal or pelvic pain and dysfunction.
She revels in helping her patients get their lives back, connect with their bodies and start enjoying life again. “I love getting to know my patients, hearing their stories, understanding who they are and what journey they have been on. I look at their alignment, their mobility, their biomechanics and feel for the restrictions that are holding them back.
We work together to devise a plan that fits their needs and get them back to participating in their lives with less pain and a better sense of their bodies. Most folks don’t realize that the smallest injury or stressful event from their past could be stored inside; holding on and keeping them from living fuller lives.”
Michele is highly sought out by local patients as well as those from other states and even some international clients for her eclectic hands on approach. She has been a licensed physical therapist for over 20 years and comes from a professional dance background where her love for movement and the body began. Michele started Align PT in Longmont in 2012, and had owned a practice in NYC from 1999-2006.
Michele’s eclectic approach includes; Myofascial Release, Visceral Manipulation, Pelvic Therapy, Dry Needling, Craniosacral Therapy, Associative Awareness Technique, Yoga. She is in the founder of the FeminEnergy® program for women’s empowerment and pelvic health education.
She lives in Longmont with her husband and beautiful daughter and enjoys outdoor activities; Running, SUP, as well as yoga, dance and just having a good time.
