Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)

Health Savings Accounts Monarch PT Physical Therapy

Can I use my HSA or FSA funds for physical therapy services?  Yes you can.  Cost of medical care is on the rise and reimbursement, especially for mental health, behavioral health, and rehabilitative services is declining.  As a result, the quality-of-care patients receive is decreasing as providers are forced to see more patients in a day to stay afloat.   Not only […]

New Year – New Chapter

Monarch PT office - New Year's Resolution

January is a common month for New Year’s Resolutions, for wanting to invoke change, and then finding the energy to do the new “GOAL”. Somewhere in the midst of change, it’s hard to know if you are really going the right direction. I have learned to listen to the concept of “ease vs resistance”. Do […]

Long Covid and IV Hydration Therapy

Hydration Station IV Infusion Therapy

I like to take Sunday morning slow and enjoy my cup of decaf while watching CBS Sunday morning (really I record it, so at least on a good week, I’m actually watching it on a Sunday!!).

Back To Where I started

Monarch PT Physical Therapy Location Comfort Texas

Getting Back To Where I Started Ten years ago, I found myself really frustrated with healthcare and working as an employee, but not feeling like I had much freedom in treating the way I wanted to treat people (I’ve been a physical therapist since 1997, so this was not a new feeling—this was just the […]

Intensive Retreats in Comfort (Literally!)

Myofascial Release Helps Peel Back Some Layers


“I guess I have this because I’m getting old” I hear this everyday. I call BS on this. Yes, we all have bodies that are aging, but in our minds, we still feel pretty young. No one likes the feeling of feeling old. No one likes it when they try to do something easy, and […]
