Empower U has been an idea of mine for two to three years but with starting a family and professional goals, I was unable to commit time to a product I would have been proud of. With the breakout of the global pandemic, COVID-19, I was able to dedicate more time to formulating what Empower U could be. This was my window of opportunity to put my efforts toward a product I was proud of and could stand behind.
The product I provide my clients with is the power of knowledge. By trade, I am a Performance Physical Therapist in Sioux Falls, SD. Within the last 5 years, I had dedicated my time to improving my skills so that I can get my patients back to what is important in their lives. I have taken continuing education courses in manual therapy, dry needling, blood flow restriction training, running analysis, yoga sculpt, achieved my board-certified sports certification and my certified strength and conditioning specialty. After all of this, I learned one thing: knowledge is the defining factor between a good and a great therapist. Knowledge can be obtained through so many different outlets, but I had yet to find one that has combined the importance of movement, the emphasis on fitness, kept things functional and pain free with a touch of rehab techniques. This is where Empower U has forced its way into reality.
By providing offering free content through different online resources I am hoping this sparks the desire to want to know more when it comes to your overall health and wellness. Maybe this leads to saving you a doctor’s visit, maybe this leads you to the right health care professional or maybe this leads to you wanting to work directly from me. Empower U offers free content online, workshops for your home gym, and treatment in a cash-based setting. No matter the circumstances, I want you to understand what you can do to become a better U.
