About Us

Artemis Physical Therapy

Artemis is the greek goddess of, among other things, wild nature and childbirth. In choosing to practice under the name Artemis Physical Therapy, I want to draw inspiration from this archetype. I believe in respecting nature, as well as our individual natures as I work with patients to help them feel better in their bodies.

Most often associated with postpartum women, the practice of pelvic floor physical therapy has expanded to include patients of all ages, and all across the gender spectrum. While I remain passionate about maternal health and offer services specific to this group, I have trained and worked with female and male anatomies, as well as pediatric patients. I am not limited in which patients or diagnoses I can work with.

The understanding of how fundamental pelvic floor function is to whole-body mobility has also grown. I find that training in pelvic health lends a particularly holistic lens to physical therapy practice. Not only do different parts of the musculoskeletal system work together in an intricate and integrated way, but they also interact with other body systems. All of this needs to be considered in treatment as we use physical therapy to maximize a patient’s function, understanding of their body, and independence in caring for their physical self.

See the Services page for a close-to-comprehensive list of conditions treated.

Meet Dr. Dana Taussig PT, DPT

I grew up in New York City and have spent my adult life slowly migrating farther into the country, drawn by a love of playing outdoors and a desire to live a more ecologically sustainable lifestyle. I attended Wesleyan University as an undergraduate, and my experiences in gender studies classes and participating in particularly formative performance if The Vagina Monologues can probably be credited with veering me towards the pelvic health specialty where I have ultimately ended up.

I graduated from the University of Vermont with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2014 and completed my Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy through the American Physical Therapy Association’s Academy of Pelvic Health in 2017. I am an active volunteer for the Academy of Pelvic Health; I believe in supporting high-quality and evidence-based specialty education for pelvic health therapists.

I have trained as a yoga instructor and group fitness instructor. Aside from highly individualized care, I also enjoy providing group movement and education experiences.

Outside of the clinic, I love being outdoors with my family (defined as both humans and dogs). Often we’re wandering at toddler-pace through streams or fields, but if I can, I’ll be cross-country skiing, biking, climbing, or canoeing.
