“…Laura has had a tremendous impact on our daughter’s development – boosting her strength, endurance and self confidence. Through a carefully planned and continually evolving program of exercises as well as early swimming and water safety skills, Laura has helped Sarah work and develop muscles in the water that she would never have been able to do on land. What’s more, Laura does this all in such a fun way that our daughter doesn’t even realize how hard she’s working. We love how much Sarah has grown and how much self confidence she’s gained. If you’re looking for the best therapeutic aquatic program for your child, call Laura right away!”

“I came to Laura for aquatic physical therapy because everyone said she was the best. I wanted the best and she is the best. I have not been disappointed. She has definitely helped me get to the next level.”

“Ready to go? From the second those three words are uttered each session Megan is locked in and her number one focus is on six year old daughter, Olivia. But she is not there as a swim instructor or PT she is there as her partner. Actively engaging Olivia in conversation and more importantly listening for both verbal and non-verbal cues about what’s going on both in the pool and in Olivia’s life. Megan had taken great care in forming a strong relationship of trust and understanding with Olivia that has helped both of them remain patient as Olivia has navigated learning a new and challenging environment of the pool.”

Olivia Ring

“Olivia has always had challenges with core strength and balance, and I never quite knew if she would be safe in the water, but week after week I see Olivia’s confidence grow as Megan truly enables her to not only be safe and be strong, but have a love of swimming. I could not have asked for a better partner in this journey for Olivia. After all, who else would gladly let a six year old dump water on them over and over and over and over again.”

Rich Weiss, Framingham, MA

“Aqua therapy has been a total success for our daughter. Laura is outstanding in not only her ability to maximize the benefits of aqua therapy, but in the ability to make the children feel as if it is fun, not work! In all of the therapies Kendall has received, by far, aqua therapy is one of the most beneficial for her body and mind! I would recommend Laura to all moms who are looking for the ultimate experience for their children with disabilities!”

“Laura Diamond is a total gem”

Sally Sanford, Concord MA

“From the first time I met her, Laura’s mix of professionalism and genuine empathy for my severe chronic pain truly impressed me and put me at ease. Her initial assessment and examination went far beyond those of many therapists. She is very patient with me, stays with me the entire therapy session, and offers me both helpful correction and lots of positive reinforcement. While I’m enjoying the warmth of the therapy pool, she has helped me get stronger! Physical therapy with her is worth every penny.”

Louise Battista, Stow MA

Joni had a total hip replacement and came to Laura after she got worse with traditional physical therapy.

“Everyone is interested in results and the therapists at Diamond Physical Therapy Associates get results. I can attribute their successes and my patients’ accelerated recoveries to the exceptional care being offered by this group and to the benefits of aquatic physical therapy.”

“My daughter has gotten much more out of this in terms of gross motor development than she has in any other therapy – and there has been a lot of other therapies.”

Andy, Dad of Amaia

“…Aqua therapy is a great complement to all the other physical therapies my son does in a week. He’s working hard and getting stronger, but he hardly notices that he’s working.”
