Kim Finklestein, MPT

Founder of Postureworks LA

Kim has been working in the physical therapy space for over 25 years, with a diverse background ranging from clinical practice, to hospitals, to yoga studios. She is on a journey to unlock better movement systems – gathering inspiration from her training in pilates, integrative body psychotherapy, Mezieres method & gyro tonics to transform the “traditional” approach to treating patients.

After experiencing a life-changing injury herself, Kim was determined to find a non-surgical treatment. This led to discovering the unparalleled benefits of the Neurac method and the 3D movement scan used in Postureworks today.

“We have the ability to really help people and PREVENT injury. Traditional physical therapists are trained to treat segments of the body – not the whole. Now, we can use science & technology to identify small problems before they become big ones. And that is pretty cool.”
