Visits to Dr. Bente are not only beneficial for my physical health; but I de-stress while I am there. She is gentle and knowledgeable. She creates a mindful environment that helps the body heal. The Music is very soothing. I enjoyed the Christmas and Holiday Music while I was waiting and even learned a new song to teach my students! Thank you and Merry Christmas Dr. Bente!
We wouldn’t use anyone else!! Dr. Bente has helped our entire family including members with special needs in a caring, knowledgeable, professional manner. I am very impressed with her investment in continuing education to remain abreast of new research and practices. I recommend her without reservation.
After a shoulder injury as a professional snowboard instructor, Dr. Bente was able to address issues that could not be addressed in MONTHS of physical therapy. Not wanting surgery, Dr. Bente and her staff were able to work to increase mobility, strength and reduce pain. I’m back out on the mountain and more knowledgeable about my body too!
