Rebecca Miller LMT, PTA, CLT
Rebecca Miller is a Licensed Massage Therapist, Physical Therapist Assistant and Certified Lymphedema Therapist. Rebecca currently works full time at Metropolitan Physical Therapy as a PTA providing patients with Physical Therapy and Massage Therapy. This unique dual license allows Rebecca to truly understand the body and allows her to offer patients another modality to help them get better. In the clinic, Rebecca primarily treats Orthopedic Injuries (Chronic and Acute), Chronic Pain conditions, Pediatrics, Women's Health and Lymphedema patients. Rebecca prides herself in her manual techniques and helping patients engage in a mind/body connection to help facilitate their healing process.
Rebecca practices Massage at two of Metropolitan Physical Therapy Locations. With her background in Physical Therapy and working with some of the best Physical Therapists in the field, she has a thorough understanding of how the body works and has effectively treated some of the most difficult diagnoses and conditions.
Rebecca has been a licensed LMT for over 7 years. She graduated in 2004 from Finger Lakes School of Massage in Ithaca, NY where they specialize in unique integrative massage. Integrative massage combines a variety of modalities into one session so you are never just having a Swedish massage, or deep tissue massage. Intuitively, she combines different modalities into her massage to customize each session to what your body specifically needs. Every massage is uniquely different and every massage is geared to accomplish your goals for that session. Rebecca has worked as a Massage Therapist in many different types of facilities, including spas, chiropractor offices, wellness centers and PT practices. Rebecca takes part in a variety of Charity events, such as the Wounded Warrior Run. She has provided Chair Massage for Students on Campuses and sports Massage for the annual Manhattan to Montauk Bike Ride.
In April of 2012 she became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist and has since been successful in working with patients who have developed Lymphedema following breast cancer mastectomy or prostate cancer. She looks forward to treating more of this population as the need for Lymphedema therapy continues to grow. Rebecca hopes to educate the public and other health care providers on the proper treatment and diagnosis of Lymphedema.
