Guests, Mary D Rachford and Oxana Lovich
Mary D Rachford, Physical Therapist, Owner of Fizical Physical Therapy & Balance Centers in Naperville & Wheaton, Illinois returns along with Oxana Lovich, Certified Life Coach, Hypnotherapist, Energy Healer & Reiki Practioner. Then, it’s 'The Sport Doctor is In' with your questions and emails!
Prior to establishing Naperville Physical Therapy, Mary managed a hospital-affiliated rehabilitation clinic in Elmhurst, where she was raised. Since graduating in 1988, she has concentrated her practice in orthopedic and sports rehabilitation with a special interest in fibromyalgia/chronic pain and sports injuries. Mary participated in volleyball as a collegiate athlete and as a high school and grade school coach. She is a certified specialist in ASTYM, a highly effective treatment for chronic tendonitis. Mary is the proud mother of Sean, Colin and Kathryn.
“The physical therapy profession has gone through many changes in the 25 plus years that I have been an active member of it. I am truly grateful every day that I own FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Centers – Naperville, not only for the phenomenal staff that have chosen to work for my husband Gary and me, but for the amazing patients that continue to surprise and lift up our practice in more ways than I can mention."
For the past 20 years, we have been on the leading edge of the latest technologies at FYZICAL (formerly Naperville Physical Therapy).
- In 1994, we were one of the first privately owned clinics in Naperville. Today, we are now the longest lasting clinic in Naperville.
- In 1996, we became the first clinic in the area to offer lymphedema treatments.
- In 2001, we were the first clinic in the Western suburbs to be certified in the ASTYM process, the first tool assisted technology that no one else was providing at the time.
- In 2003, we became one of the first therapy clinics in Naperville to offer custom foot orthotics.
- In 2010, we had one of the first trained dry needling therapists in the state.
- In 2011, we had one of the first Schroth trained therapists in the state.
- In 2013, we became the first therapy clinic to offer the nutraMetrix supplement line to patients.
- In 2014, we became the first FYZICAL clinic in Illinois.
All of these additions were based on thorough research, significant training and sometimes a gut feeling. At FYZICAL we have established a highly experienced staff in a state-of-the-art clinic that truly cares for the entire patient – not just a broken body part.
Oxana Lovich is an experienced certified life coach, hypnotherapist, energy healer, and reiki practitioner. Her interest in self-development arose at an early age, due to tragic events that were life-changing for her. Her experiences gave rise to a burning desire to find the inner peace, which was missing in her life.
Ms. Lovich has certificates from The University of California, Berkeley, Marisa Peer’s Rapid Transformational Therapy, The Silva Method Academy, Mind Valley Academy, Sussex Hypnotherapy Centre, and Academy of Ancient Magick. Lovich is further releasing a book, AbunDance - The Fulfilled Path to Success.
Lovich found her life’s purpose, to share her knowledge of mindfulness on a grand scale and aiding people in their transformation from their current selves into an empowered, more mindful version of themselves. Through her work, she has been able to successfully guide her clients during their process by incorporating powerful techniques into their lives, which aided them in leading a more joyful, peaceful, and conscious life.
Lovich believes people have the ability to discover their life’s true purpose, by warding off negative thinking, discovering and overcoming any limiting beliefs, manifesting abundance and prosperity, and loving themselves unconditionally first.
