What makes May unique is that she has been a dancer for more than 50 years and dancers by their nature, need a lot of physical therapy.

“Because of all the work I do as a dancer, it gives me an intuitive sensibility of how the body works and fits together,” she explains. “I look at the body as a whole. All the parts are connected. I look at the patient’s pain or injury and I always relate to their posture, the way they move, the way they hold their head and neck, the way they hold their back, and the way they are seated. I know their issue could be related to organ problems. I conduct a full musculoskeletal evaluation of how their body works.

“I see this as a sort of three-dimensional spider web. When one thread is pulled, it alters the whole spider web. I have to figure out where the twists in the spider web are and unwind it to help restore balance to the body.”

May is also the only physical therapist in the United States to become a Certified Zena Rommett Floor-Barre instructor. That allows her to adapt Floor-Barre exercises for those recovering from injuries and musculoskeletal dysfunction.

Kesler Physical & Massage Therapy is committed to providing exemplary care and physical therapy to the residents of the Washington, DC Metro area and Chevy Chase and Bethesda, Silver Spring, Rockville and Montgomery County, Maryland as well as Arlington County, Virginia.
