Seth Oberst PT, DPT, SCS, CSCS

“I teach people how to regulate their bodily systems through movement and to re-take control of their own function and eliminate pain by becoming more resilient. Humans are walking ecosystems and in order to function properly we must learn how to integrate the body and the mind, something often lost in modern-day culture.”

When our systems become dysregulated due to stress, our perceptions of ourselves are altered and self-regulation is lost – we no longer feel in sync with our body. I work with people who are experiencing symptoms such as persistent pain, fatigue, rigid movements, psychological and muscular tension, worry, poor decisions, insecurities, the list goes on and on… due in large part to a disconnect between body and mind. Often this disconnect occurs because of trauma (whether emotional or physical). 

Conditions I work with:

  • People who are suffering from chronic or persistent pain, fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue
  • Orthopedic pain anywhere in the body, including headaches and TMJ dysfunction
  • People with a history of trauma (physical or emotional) – often in tandem with a psychologist/counselor
  • People who feel stiff or tight
  • Sensory processing disorders including visual and auditory and their impact on movement and balance
  • People with high work or life stress, anxiety and/or depression
