Loribeth offers two session options:
INTEGRATIVE MANUAL THERAPY (IMT) is a unique approach of hands-on bodywork that addresses pain and dysfunction with light touch. The session begins with "mapping"to find the root source of the discomfort. The treatment that follows combines hands-on energy work with myofascial release, craniosacral techniques, and other therapeutic modalities.
AYURVEDA is an ancient Indian science that teaches how to restore balance to one's system through diet and lifestyle choices. Ayurveda addresses water intake, exercise intensity, food spice and temperature compatibility, herbal cleansing, and rejuvenation with oils. Loribeth can either complete an Ayurvedic consultation, or you can receive a restorative Ayurvedic oil massage.
Loribeth Cohen, PT, has been treating orthopedic conditions and chronic
pain since 1989. She is the founder and owner of re:fit, a renowned
fitness and wellness studio in Glenview, Illinois.
In addition to treating patients and teaching Pilates, Loribeth lectures
nationally to therapists. A former marathon runner and dancer, Loribeth
offers an integrative approach to healing, combining physical therapy,
Integrative Manual Therapy, (IMT), and Pilates. While traditional physical
therapy focuses on the muscles, bones and joints, IMT looks at all systems of the physical body (cardiovascular, lymphatic, neural, gastrointestinal, and CranioSacral) along with emotional and belief systems. For example, if you are experiencing pain in your neck, the source of that pain is not necessarily coming from the neck. The source of
the dysfunction may be from a different physical region in the body, or from psychosocial,emotional, or even spiritual blockages in your body. The technique of "mapping" determines the primary system of dysfunction by using just 5 grams of light touch. The subsequent treatment then consists of using a combination of hands-on energy work,
myofascial release, muscle energy, CranioSacral therapy, and psychotherapeutic techniques. This combination is able to not only relieve the acute pain, but it also addresses the root of dysfunction.
In 2013 Loribeth received her certification in Ayurvedic Medicine from Kerala
Ayurveda Academy, and is incorporating Ayurvedic Medicine into her patient care. Ayurveda, an ancient Indian healing practice, encourages metabolically healthy habits and mindful life decisions. After a consultation to learn the client's constitution (prakriti), Loribeth helps clients achieve personal balance through individualized recommendations for diet, oils, lifestyle, and routine. For example, Ayurveda addresses water intake,
exercise intensity, food spice and temperature compatibility, herbal cleansing and rejuvenation with oils.
Loribeth's approach is unique and she has strong relationships with physicians who refer their patients to her because of her ability to combine western physical therapy practices with an eastern philosophy. She addresses the underlying structural causes of pain and dis-ease, the functional rehabilitation required for complete healing, and the Ayurvedic process to achieve personal balance for long-term health and wellness. Loribeth's motto is "Achieve happiness through health by living your balance and feeling
the difference." Her clients agree that her studio has the power to make that happen.

Ayurvedic medicine ("Ayurveda" for short) is one of the world's oldest holistic ("whole-body") healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It's based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
