Joni had a total hip replacement. Hear what she has to say about why Laura is different than traditional physical therapists.

“…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!”

Nathan is 15 years old and has cerebral palsy. Listen to him talk about what aquatic physical therapy does for him.

“Megan understood immediately my pain and my fears. She guided me through as series of exercises in a therapy pool that improved my confidence and physical ability. She was right there in the water with me, helping and encouraging me through each exercise. Megan is a gentle and supportive therapist. Her professional knowledge is such that she can immediately begin where it is needed and adapt accordingly.  I watched Megan work with a disabled youth and believe that she can accommodate all levels of therapy for all ages.  I thoroughly enjoyed the aqua therapy experience with Megan.”

Diane Climo, Lincoln, MA

“Megan is by far the most skilled physical therapist I have encountered.  She is thorough in assessment, considering all aspects of my activities of daily life, and body mechanics to create an individualized treatment plan. Megan has creative problem solving skills to address obstacles that exacerbate pain and to find exercises that help overcome well established issues. But, what impresses me most about Megan is her emotional intelligence.  I have seen her work with a wide variety of ages and disabilities adapting her communication style to suit the situation.  She is kind, respectful, and thorough, gently redirecting when necessary yet affirming.  This type of attention to detail and care is a gift.  We need more like Megan in the medical community!”

Kelly Larson, RN

“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

“Megan has a great way with my 6 year old son with Cerebral Palsy (Right Hemiplegia) that honors him, his growing independence, self-awareness and advocacy, needs and opportunities of his body.  I scoured the earth for Laura almost 4 years ago.  Our family has traveled far and wide (Alabama, Virginia, NYC, etc.) for the best care and therapies and the Universe gave us a break that the best in this discipline is right here in the Greater Boston area.  Laura scoured the Earth for Megan.  From these years working with Laura and Megan, my son swims with family and friends, in community swim classes.  He loves, is safe in, and participates fully in the water.  It’s wonderful for his body and spirit.”

“Laura Diamond is a total gem.”

Sally Sanford, Concord MA

“When I started working with Laura Diamond, I was experiencing chronic pain and exercise intolerance secondary to fibromyalgia (FM). I also had other multiple problems, including bursitis in both hips, arthritis in one foot, and tendonitis in my shoulder. I was a mess!

Laura carefully evaluated all the physical problems and started me on a gradual and gentle regimen of manual therapy and exercise. In time, I achieved all of my goals and I was in the best physical shape in decades. Now, I work out vigorously several times a week using exercises and self-knowledge about my body that I learned from my work with Laura. Perhaps the best outcome is that I keep my FM in remission through my exercise regimen and enjoy a wide range of physical activities without pain or injury.

Laura is exceptional – the best physical therapist I’ve ever had (and I’ve had lots over the years). Her individualized attention is what really makes the difference and her program is unique.”

Barbara, University Professor

“Laura’s repertoire of possibilities to help me seems inexhaustible; Laura is inventive, insightful, and artful in choosing from them.”

Robin Cohen, Newton MA

“This is a cost effective way to learn water exercises from Laura.”

Beth, Maynard MA

“Laura is amazing! Laura’s innovative, knowledgeable and personal approach are unique and comprehensive.”

Astrid Williams, Concord 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!”

Kim, Mother, Stow MA

“Laura and Megan are so kind and nice. You should try it to get strong muscles. I recommend it!”
