What People Say About Dr. Natsuko Watanabe, DPT
I have been to many physical therapists. Natsuko is outstanding. She has a great sense of how the body works and what needs to be done to get fix problems and get healthy. She is great at figuring out exactly the right exercise. Her hands on work for deep tissue muscle release and realignment of joints fixed problems in a few weeks that I had suffered with for several years. She is very friendly and pleasant.
