"We love Jessica and Stepping Stones Physical Therapy. We started with her last summer and loved the sessions in her beautiful pool. Aquatic therapy is such a nice supplement to the other therapies we do for our child with cerebral palsy. She loves the water and Jessica is great at disguising therapy as fun water play. Highly recommend!" – Dawn & Emmy
“We had a wonderful experience with Jessica's Aquatic Physical Therapy. It was a great way to orient Jeremiah to the water/pool with the added benefit of getting additional therapy. We found that it was a good way to get therapeutic stretches in and loosen muscles; much more so, than in conventional therapy. Jessica made the atmosphere pleasant by heating the pool to a therapeutic temperature, providing all the toys & water equipment for motivation, and lounge equipment for the onlookers/parents! Great way to start your Saturdays!” – Joanna & Jeremiah
Jessica has seen the impact and benefits of aquatic physical therapy for children with a variety of conditions. She highly recommends aquatic-based physical therapy for special children with unique needs.
"We had an amazing experience with Jessica. She is so patient and gentle with the kids. My son adores her and was excited to go in the water every week. He grew leaps and bounds this past summer and our PT attributed a lot of it to the extra aquatic therapy he received. I can’t thank Jessica enough for all she has done for my son."
