Ciel Yogis is a physical therapist who treats patients with bowel, bladder or sexual dysfunction, as well as orthopedic impairments. Her goal is to restore natural movement to the body through a holistic approach that incorporates her experience as a Pilates instructor.
Yogis helps patients individually to understand their own impairments from an anatomical and functional perspective, while also teaching them about the psychological components of their pain or dysfunction. Her treatment often includes education, behavioral modifications, traditional exercise and neuromuscular exercises, a method called Fascial Manipulation and other manual therapies, and mindfulness-based exercises.
Yogis earned her physical therapy doctorate from a joint program between San Francisco State University and UCSF. She is a certified Pilates instructor and a certified instructor in the MELT Method, which teaches individuals to relieve their own pain, stay healthy and reach physical goals.
Yogis is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and California Physical Therapy Association.
