WHAT PEOPLE SAY

KATHRYN MORGAN

Former Soloist

New York City Ballet

Physical therapy is something dancers can't live without. Our bodies are our lives, and thanks to our physical therapists, we can achieve peak performance

ABBY HUDGINS

Dance Teacher

It is difficult in the dance world to find a doctor who understands not only the injury a dancer is dealing with, but how the injury relates to what steps the dancer can continue with in class. Having someone who understands the terminology and specific dance related causes of an injury is integral to helping dancers overcome the problem as well as avoiding future setbacks. Brian Magna has this knowledge, and it can benefit any dancer facing an injury, no matter how severe.

TIM MELADY

Dancer, Dance Teacher

The Hartt School &

The Nutmeg Conversatory for the Arts

A Dancer cannot be slowed down by pain or injury. Brian understands this. He treats a dancer's body with care and respect. He knows how to pinpoint a concern and treat it quickly. Working with Brian while I was a principle dancer with the Hartford Ballet, I knew I could trust him to accurately assess what was going on with my body. Brian could correct imbalances and  give me exercises and tips to improve my performance. This approach gave me confidence I would return stronger and less likely to repeat an injury. It also boosted my understanding of how my body works in a biomechanical way. Now a teacher of dance, I confidently recommend my students to Brian for treatment and rehabilitation."
