Hello, I’m Bella…

Hello, I’m Bella…

Curious about me? I’ve lived in this town with my hubby and family since 1972, my professional initiation year into physical therapy.  There is a solid community and grounded, quiet presence in Sacramento. I adore and appreciate this town.

Dreizler Physical Therapy was established 1990, offering quality hands on care to thousands of patients. In 2005 I sold the practice to focus on delivering health care out-of-the-box. I currently see individual clients for holistic treatment in beautiful studio space over my East Sac garage. The focus is hands on care and education for a personal movement practice. After more than forty years I have landed in a style of working that is incredibly nourishing…for you and for me.

Many clients are dance and yoga students, but not all. Since I’ve been on the 5Rhythms dancing path since 2002 , I remain oh so curious about how healing happens when we move on the dance floor. The practice had a huge impact in transforming my life, so in 2008, after years of pre-req prep and a year-long immersion with Gabrielle Roth, I received certification to teach 5Rhythms. Been at it ever since.

My practice of clinical physical therapy is continually evolving and yoga totally nourishes it. Yoga provides balance to dance and offers a fresh perspective to feel my body in motion. Like most of us, I’ve dealt with body challenges over a lifetime. Yoga has expanded my experience beyond the confines of clinical Western medicine and my physical therapy intelligence has opened the world of yoga for me in unique ways. The classes and workshops I offer blend pragmatic physical therapy wisdom with the spirit of yoga. After years of being a student and teaching, in 2013 I finally completed a 200 hour certification in yoga. I think I’m pretty much done getting certified.

In the middle of this sixth decade of my life, all of these threads are finally weaving together. In 2015-16, as I deepened investigation of my own spinal scoliosis, I delved into the finer points of the amazing pelvic floor.  What’s happening inside can often bear on problems in the hips and spine.  With some rich personal experience and specific training behind me, I now offer internal pelvic assessment and treatment for women for issues with continence, prolapse and pelvic pain.  Look for workshops in this area as well.

Still curious? You might watch this video filmed in 2012 in Maui.
