Anyone who is lucky enough to be treated by Brandi will understand my comments. Rather than detail my particular problems, I can hopefully help by telling you that I started seeing Brandi for some 30 -year- old unresolved childbirth issues, followed by residual pain from one surgery, and finally saw her immediately after complex major surgery to aid in recovery.  In each case I was amazed after each treatment how much Brandi helped me. Particularly after my last surgery, I needed her help to just move. Her treatment is not necessarily just for pain- it is to free your body to function as it should.  She is highly skilled, knowledgeable, and I believe gifted. She commits herself to each person- and as they are treated, uncovers their body's secrets.  I knew each time I saw her, I would walk away feeling better.  I never thought twice about the private pay part after my first visit. Her talents are unique, therefore Brandi’s treatments cannot be compared to PT paid by insurance.  I have seen a multitude of traditional PTs over the years, but I can't explain how grateful I was to be able to be treated by Brandi...Brandi is one of a kind and I would encourage anyone to make an appointment with her.

I am very grateful to Brandi Kirk for giving me my life back.  When exercising with some heavier weights, I inadvertently lost my grip on one of the weights and ended up rotating my pelvis to the point where I couldn’t walk normally.  Before learning about Brandi, I went to see other physical therapists who tried to help me, but my pelvis would just rotate back out of alignment.  Someone insisted I go see Brandi because she is highly skilled in the additional knowledge of other incredible therapies.  Sure enough, at my first appointment with her, Brandi found the root cause of my problem.  Over some time as she gently worked on me, she successfully got my pelvis into proper alignment, and I am able to walk again without pain!  Even though I paid out-of-pocket, it was well worth it for Brandi to realign my pelvis correctly and to even fix other related issues.  In fact, I found that my cost for in-network physical therapy was actually more in the long run because it had more sessions, which were not even helping my issue.  Furthermore, my sessions with Brandi were 1-on-1 in a private room for 1 hour in a peaceful atmosphere.  Brandi is a very talented gem of a physical therapist, and patients in her new location are extremely fortunate to have her treat them.

I have to say, I am extremely grateful for the care and concern Brandi Kirk gave to me. I came to Brandi with very extensive abdominal scaring and adhesions left by 5 surgeries, the last one being left open to heal by secondary intention which took 9 months to close.  I had groin, abdominal, and back pain w/esophageal reflux. Some days I wasn’t sure which pain was worse. I wasn’t getting any answers from my multiple physicians and was extremely frustrated that I could not improve the quality of my life and decrease my pain levels.

Brandi listened to me and my body. I don’t understand how she can “read” or “feel” my body and is drawn to the area that needs to be worked on the most at the moment. I wanted my back worked on first, as it hurt the most, but she explained it was my intraabdominal adhesions that were causing my back pain. She explained why to me, but I was not “there” to say the least. Over time, my back pain, groin pain, abdominal pain became less and less. I could drive without severe groin pain, move with less discomfort and become more active and more like my old self!  She helped my reflux by working on my esophageal sphincter with her light touch. I could barely believe that her hands on my body with specific light touch, could make such a difference in my daily life. I have continued this practice to keep my body in tune and live my life to the fullest I can. I did not have insurance to pay for these services and was quite hesitant at first. I liked the fact I could just not come back. No contracts. No pressure sales pitch. Just caring respect w/tremendous knowledge and help over time.   I paid out of pocket for these services as I decided it was a commitment to my health. I would definitely say, “worth every penny”. I was getting no answers anywhere else. I truly feel Brandi was a gift to me and my body. So very grateful for her empathy and amazing expertise!!

I am a 60-year-old female who has worked as a Physical Therapist for over 30 years. I had been suffering from urinary incontinence as well as severe R hip pain which started 1 year following a partial hysterectomy for excessive bleeding. I tried conventional physical therapy with a pelvic health therapist as well as an orthopedic therapist for my R hip pain. I also tried chiropractic treatments with minimal success. I had a strong feeling that my hip pain and my urinary incontinence were related since they started at about the same time. I had taken some courses on visceral manipulation and cranio-sacral therapy. I knew that the assessments taught would go to the root of the problem even if different from the symptoms. I sought out a therapist who could provide a more complete assessment and treatment using these techniques, even though it was not covered by my insurance plan.

Brandi Kirk performed a complete medical history and physical assessment. She determined that scar tissue from my hysterectomy was causing both my urinary incontinence and hip pain. One treatment was enough to eliminate my urinary incontinence. My hip pain was much more stubborn. Not only was my hip pain caused by scar tissue, but also by nerve entrapment, soft tissue injury, and emotional trauma. Brandi was able to use somato-emotional release, myo-facial release, techniques as well as techniques to release entrapped nerves, ligaments, etc. to provide lasting relief. Subsequent treatments helped alleviate much of my hip pain and set me on the road to recovery.

Brandi Kirk is a skilled therapist who can determine the root of the problem and provide lasting improvements in the least amount of time. This is well worth paying out of pocket.

When I first came to see Brandi, I was suffering from extreme neck pain and immobility. In addition, I had low back pain. I had tried many different treatments and was getting little relief.

At that point, I had seen multiple practitioners and tried many methods. As a physician, I have access and knowledge of many different methods and practices. I thought I had tried everything. I was referred to Brandi by another practitioner.

When I learned that her services were out of pocket, I was hesitant. However, since nothing else was working, I decided to try one treatment. I realized in the first treatment that I had experienced more permanent relief than I had in multiple treatments with other practitioners. I decided to continue. Investing in my long-term health was a priority for me and the cost- benefit was well worth it.

As Brandi started working with me, restrictions that had been limiting me for years slowly began loosening. I was finally getting more mobility and experiencing less pain.

Brandi has a kind and gentle approach and at the same time is also very focused and systematic. She has a superb knowledge of anatomy and a diverse repertoire of treatment methods. She always exudes positive and caring energy which is vital to healing. She is very talented, yet very humble and prioritizes the safety and well-being of her patients.

I cannot say enough good things about Brandi, her abilities, character, and skill. I am so grateful for her and the positive impact she has had on me in my healing journey.

I'm so grateful for Brandi. I don't know how to express what she's done for me without sounding dramatic. She changed my life. She gave my kids their mom back and I'm afraid to think of where I'd be without her.

I was a mess. I could barely function. I don't know how I was taking care of two toddlers. I had debilitating headaches; constant pressure, frequent migraines, and a stabbing pain through the back of my eyes every time I bent forward. I couldn’t think straight and certainly wasn't present with my kids. I was so incontinent after having my daughter that I was changing clothes multiple times a day. It was just so hard to do anything.

I was referred to Brandi for post-partum incontinence. It’s crazy to think that I almost didn't go see her. How was physical therapy going to help? My doctors weren't helping.

Brandi is not like any PT I had ever met. She has this amazing ability to find the source of the problem. She listens to your body and helps it heal. Sessions with her are hands-on, one-on-one in a private treatment room.

She not only helped with the incontinence, but the recurrent BV infections and constipation resolved as well.  After a couple visits my headaches got better. I remember the moment Brandi was working gently on my neck and the pressure that I'd felt for years, just went away. I sat up and said, “Is this what normal people feel like?” I couldn't believe how good it felt to be free, to feel human again.  Sometimes treatment resulted in a quick fix like that, and others happened quietly like it had never been there at all.  At some point the stabbing pain just stopped happening and now my migraines are rare.  I'm a different person because of her.

Over the years Brandi has also helped with my twisted knee, a shoulder injury, nerve damage and various other traumas stored in my body. I brought my whole family to see her and recommend her to everyone. I told her she's the only one qualified to treat us, insurance or not.  We are so lucky to know her.  She is a beautiful person with a big heart and an almost unbelievable skill level.  Go see her, she will help.

I am happy to recommend Brandi of Kirk Integrative Physical Therapy. She is a highly skilled practitioner of Visceral and Neural Manipulation whose palpation and listening techniques help her zero in where the tissue is needing to be released. Over the years, she has helped me with long-held chronic pain due to scar tissue from an old surgery, and with fascial and visceral restrictions from a recent back surgery. She also zoned in on digestive issues that were frequently plaguing me. My experience is one of awe and gratefulness at how she finds and treats the source of my pain with immediate results. I know (from past experience) that a traditionally trained therapist would not have been able to get to the source of the issues as quickly nor as accurately as Brandi. Being able to use my HSA was a plus; but even if that were not available, the personal care and expertise received here outweighs paying out-of-pocket. I have seen that as physical therapy treatments become more cookie-cutter, and the price of time with a practitioner exceeds the value, finding someone as knowledgeable and caring as Brandi is like finding gold.

I’m also a physical therapist, so I sought advice from other experienced PTs when I needed an expert to treat my debilitating pain and scarring after abdominal surgery. Brandi was the top recommendation since she is well-known in the professional community as one of the most highly skilled, if not THE most skilled, practitioner in the country for visceral mobilization. I traveled 4 hours round trip and paid out of pocket for treatments, but it was worth every penny. Brandi is incredibly intuitive and knowledgeable, and treatments were gentle but thorough.  My pain and ability to function drastically improved, far more than the improvement I had achieved from a previous round of standard pelvic floor physical therapy with a different PT. I consider myself lucky that I was able to receive Brandi's skilled and compassionate care.

I have seen a lot of medical practitioners over the years, but Brandi (Kirk Integrative Physical Therapy) delivers top notch individualized care. She truly listened to my concerns and helped to develop a plan to work through them. Over the seven (or more) years I worked with her, together we worked through my incontinence issues, recovery from hip surgery, recovery from shoulder procedures, a back injury, two pregnancies with vaginal births, and severe plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend seeking her out for all of your needs, you will be in the best of hands!
