50+ years of Physical Therapy Experience
After 20 years of clinical practice, Bella founded Dreizler Physical Therapy in 1990, offering quality, hands-on care to thousands of patients. In 2005, she sold her practice to focus on a more holistic method of treating patients who had reached dead ends in their search for healing.
Integrated Practice for Deep Healing
Throughout this personal journey, Bella witnessed how yoga and dance expanded the confines of clinical Western medicine, and vice-versa, how the knowledge of physical therapy could bring her to new heights on the mat and on the dance floor. She learned from experience that in aligning her body, heart, and mind through these practices, access to deeper parts of her being opened.
After facing her own personal health challenges that required a deep re-imagining of her self-care, Bella felt called to bring her integrated practice to others – and Body Joy was born.
It is a privilege, and one I do not hold lightly, to have lived this long. A challenging childhood, an adventurous young adulthood, a busy busy middle age…these decades have delivered me to this moment when I am able to simply be, bear witness and open to love. So grateful.
