Dr. Galina Tsypis is a Board Certified Geriatric Specialist in Physical Therapy with over 27 years experience working in a variety of patient care settings including acute care, inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient. She has a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Physical Therapy from Thomas Jefferson University and a Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy from Arcadia University. She is the founder and primary physical therapist at LevinWell Fitness & Rehab, a mobile and office based skilled therapy and wellness center whose mission is to empower people with acute and chronic medical conditions to live and function at their optimal level.
Galina partnered with Inspired Chi to bring Integrative and Holistic alternatives to the community through Levinwell Fitness & Rehab and The Studio for Healing Arts & Complementary Health. Together we hope to make Holistic Healing accessible to all ages & mobility ranges with personalized and targeted classes and services that treat the mind, body & spirit.
Our own AJ has vastly improved her movement and therefore her quality of life through the therapy that Galina has designed and provided. She had this to say :
"I feel like I've won the lottery!"
"Anyone who knows me even a little knows that for the past 4 years I've struggled with walking, mobility, stamina and frankly, anxiety that things wouldn't get better. I tried many traditional medical modalities and had some temporary success. My anxiety and frustration grew at not being able to make medical personnel understand that I was "walking funny" and feeling that my treatment was missing something. As happens often, once a diagnosis is made, the diagnosis and treatment are locked in and no one looks further. From the minute I met with Galina for an evaluation I knew something was different and had renewed hope that I could get well. Her evaluations are thorough and she REALLY hears what you are saying.
Together we discussed my areas of concern:
1. Walking up and down stairs.
2. Easily getting up and down from a seated position without needing assistance
3. Developing the ability to get up and down off of the floor to do Yoga or Meditations & not worry about falling.
4. Fear of falling and being a burden to family members and friends (and the self imposed isolation this often caused)
Galina has many areas of expertise, including working with Seniors facing physical changes and understands the anxiety that may come along with aging or illness. Within seven visits I have already been able to claim several wins including increased stamina and mobility. Additionally, I have begun developing core and lower body strength to stand from a seated position 5-10 times in a row without assistance.
I don't want to brag (yeah, I do!) but I also have also been able to get up and down off the ground by myself. Galina also identified what I was specifically doing when I was using stairs or stepping off a curb.
Finally, someone actually saw what I've been saying for years and is addressing it!!
Inspired Chi's Studio for Healing Arts and Complementary Health, and physical therapy at LevinWell, have positioned me to thrive in life. This is truly a place of wellness for body, mind and spirit that you can enjoy in one location. Bright blessings on your wellness journey, It's never to late to start."
