A Look Back into My Journey

One thing to note about Arete Rehab is that it is a place where passion and expertise converge in my healing hands. I am Christine Seip (PT, MSPT, CLT, DNT.), a professional physical therapist with 24 years of rehabilitative experience. My journey into physical therapy began at Northern Arizona University, where I received a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science, complemented by a Minor in Physical Science, in 1997. This foundation paved the way for Des Moines University Osteopathic Medical Center, where I earned my Master of Physical Therapy in 2000.

My Clinical Experience

My clinical journey has spanned acute care, outpatient settings, extended rehabilitation, and home health. My ultimate ambition has always been to guide individuals on their path to recovery through my own outpatient practice. Witnessing the transformation and progress of my patients fuels my passion and commitment to their well-being.

Honing My Skills in Specialized Treatments

I pride myself on being a lifelong learner, continually enhancing my skills and knowledge in specialized treatments such as John F Barnes Myofascial Release, which plays a pivotal role in my practice. Alongside this, my expertise extends to managing lymphedema, employing dry needling techniques, craniosacral therapy, and vestibular rehabilitation. My approach is holistic, blending manual therapies with traditional exercise, stretching, and muscle balancing to achieve optimal outcomes.

My Philosophy

Beyond the clinic, you'll find me embracing the great outdoors, whether it's trail running with my loyal German Shepherd, ice climbing in Ouray, or skiing the slopes of Telluride. My personal adventures reflect my belief in a balanced, healthy lifestyle, mirroring the holistic approach I advocate for in my practice.
