About our Practice

Somatic Nature Physical Therapy and Wellness is a small woman-owned business, and we are looking for a PT to join our naturopathic physical therapy practice in the Mission district of San Francisco. Our concept is innovative and unique in that, in addition to traditional physical therapy, we provide a holistic approach to the general health and well-being of our patients.

Patients at SNPT & Wellness typically receive the following manual treatments, depending on their specific needs: STM, MFR, TPR, SCS, MET/joint mobilizations, IASTM, MFD/cupping, neural mobilizations, assisted stretching, and others.

In addition to manual therapy-based PT, SNPT & Wellness therapists recommend holistic healthcare approaches to optimize the patient’s healing journey. Examples of holistic well-being and health advice are recommendations for dietary/lifestyle changes, sleep hygiene, herbs, and supplements.
