    Hi May! Just wanted to thank you again for seeing me while I was in DC visiting my new granddaughter! All the walking and stairs in their apartment really accelerated my rehab. And of course, the work that you did!Yesterday, I got to 120 knee flexion in PT, after having a total knee replacement a few months ago- without pain!! In Florida, I found a great person near me. He was 40 minutes away and like you, was worth the drive! Thanks again!

    She did an amazing job! She worked magic on my back; I didn't know it was possible to get that much improvement for back pain after just one session. She was very knowledgeable, and immediately identified the underlying issues. It was also great that she specialises in PT for dancers, as she knew exactly where I was coming from and could give very relevant advice. Highly recommended!

    Such a great experience! I have seen May Kesler over six times in the last few months and it has been totally worth it. I can come in with a new/acute problem or I've come in with long term pain I've been dealing with. She is able to use MFR and PT and her extensive knowledge to ease the pain and in some cases, completely get rid of it! . Not only does May practice physical healing in person, but she passes along verbal and physical tools for continued healing at home as needed. I would recommend May Kesler to anyone who is looking for short OR long term relief and healing!

    I have seen May and her assistant several times for neck and shoulder pain. The massages helped me generally although I think I benefited as much from the great tips and exercises I received to help manage pain and stress.

    May Kesler is a miracle worker! I've suffered from a chronic pain condition for close to 30 years and she is the first Physical Therapist who has truly understood my condition and known how to treat it. Her knowledge of myofascial release is astounding. So grateful I found her practice!

    I started PT and massage therapy two weeks ago and I'm already feeling so much better. Thank you. I have the best care and treatment from May Kesler!

    I recommend May Kesler, who lives in Chevy Chase and treats patients in her home. You get her full, undivided attention, free parking, and excellent care. I first saw her a couple years ago for whiplash after being rear-ended. Then I went back to her a few weeks ago for some tendinitis and bursitis. Last week, I had a breakthrough in treatment and my shoulder is feeling much better. May is not only a licensed physical therapist, but also a licensed massage therapist. She uses a variety of techniques to work on you, including cold laser therapy, which is great for inflammation.

    I just wanted to thank you for our session yesterday. For the first time in weeks, I did not wake up during the night with shoulder pain. And so far today, no pain. I'm keeping your instructions in mind with respect to body mechanics. Looking forward to our next session.
