Beth Rini Scott, PT, DPT
Veteran physical therapist and wellness coach Dr. Beth Rini Scott says her hands are her best assessment tool.
That’s why her holistic physical therapy is geared to one-on-one compassionate care. She genuinely believes in the healing power of touch and each session lasts at least 50 minutes as she works to rehabilitate injuries, restore mobility and seeks ways to prevent problems from recurring.
“I have always loved using my hands to make people feel better,” she says when asked why she selected physical therapy as a career. The Whole Health practice philosophy is a bit of a shift from what Beth is best known for treating—complex and chronic pain syndromes.
While still treating these conditions, she is now hoping to focus on preventing disease and chronic conditions from getting a hold on her clients in the first place by utilizing education to empower her clients to move better, improve nutrition, and make lifestyle shifts that reduce disease risk.
Beth has over 30 years of experience as a physical therapist, over 20 years as a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner(R), and over 15 years in yoga.
Practicing one-on-one is the best way to get the highest quality care. Many clinics cannot offer this approach.
Beth achieved her Bachelor of Science in Zoology from Ohio University and then her Bachelor of Physical Therapy from the same facility. She achieved her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in Provo, Utah.
She is also a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner®, a Bones for Life ™ Teacher, a Wellness Coach, a Certified Nutrition Therapist and holds a Cornell Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition. She is also certified in Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and Functional Dry Needling.
Beth has three adult children, grandchildren and loves food and cooking, yoga, walking, hiking and nature, yard work/gardening and reading. A self-confessed learn-a-holic, she devours many books and other media to explore new concepts for client education and to stay up to date with evidence-based therapy.
