Keiko Yanai's bio

This content was provided by Keiko Yanai "Keiko Yanai is a Doctor of Physical Therapy who practices in New York City. She attended Queens College as an undergraduate where she received her BA in Physical Therapy, and later continued her education and training at Stony Brook University where she received her Doctorate of Physical Health. At her practice, Directions Physical Therapy, Dr. Yanai combines massage and physical therapy including spinal decompression to provide relief for pain in the back, neck, shoulders, and knees. Her rehabilitation plans help her patients to return to normal and pain free activities. Keiko's early life experiences primed her for an interest in integrative medicine, and specifically, physical therapy. At a young age, Keiko learned how powerful Western medicine could be when she was conventionally treated for severe asthma as a child. She also learned of Western medicines limitations when she later developed dermatitis. Finding no relief through conventional means, Keiko turned to alternative medicine. She sought Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, chi treatment and dietary supplements and through a fine-tuned combination of these treatments was able to successfully resolve the dermatitis. Also, Keiko learned the importance and curative benefits of touch at a young age, in part due to her mother's ailments at that time. When Keiko was ten years old, her mother suffered from chronic lower back pain. Wanting to help, Keiko learned how to massage and manipulate her mother's back, and through her self-taught methods was able to relieve her discomfort. It turns out Keiko has a knack for manual therapy, and coupled with an appreciation for both Western and integrative medicine, she later focused on this natural ability in her studies, and much later, turned it into her career. After graduating from Stony Brook, Keiko spent five years honing her skills in hospitals and rehabilitation centers before opening her own practice, Directions Physical Health."
