We have been in private practice since 1998 and treat infants, children,and adults with a unique approach; melding Osteopathic based hands-on modalities with a traditional model of Physical Therapy to treat pain and a wide range of injuries.
Absolutely phenomenal. Kind, intuitive, grounded, wonderfully talented and extremely knowledgeable. He is the rare gem; the practitioner who when you visit you can completely trust and who inspires confidence. He has the ability to read your physical and energetic symptoms but also has a giant toolbox of different modalities which he seamlessly uses. When I left, I felt a tranquility and relief from pain that stayed with me for days.
Steve's knowledge of the physical body is vast and his familiarity with treatment methodologies is extensive. I have no doubt that Steve and his magic hands would be beneficial to anyone suffering from pain or looking for balance
If you are lucky enough to be coming across Steve Kravitz, run, don’t walk to see him. I have been seeing Steve regularly for going on two years and he is the only therapist I have found that effectively manages my chronic neck pain, TMJ, headache, fatigue, sleep and stress related symptoms. After years of trying other types of therapies like acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, shiatsu, osteopaths, and more, I can confidently say that his skill set is unique. I could not recommend anyone more highly than Steve Kravitz, he has hugely improved my quality of life.
Dr Kravitz literally saved me from an invasive neck surgery. I had seen everyone for my herniated disk issue: an Rehab MD, an acupuncturist, even had a round of epideral steriod shots - nothing was removing the intense pain I was living with as a result of a neck injury. I finally had a surgical date set to remove my disk when I decided to reach out to Steve for help. Within a 2 weeks, I noticed a difference. Within a month, I was virtually pain-free and had my life back. He's an incredibly talented doctor who understands the body and it's complicated mechanics. And more importantly, he cares greatly about his patients and is committed to their health and well-being
Steve's work is amazing. I went to Steve because of a sharp pain under my shoulder blade. He didn't try to "crack my back", adjust my spine or sell me vitamins on the way out. What he did was find the source of the pain and fix it...in a single visit I felt 100% better when I left. My business partner and his wife now are Steve loyalists, too. Steve is a smart, caring, well trained, compassionate practitioner. I would send my grandma.
