Dr. Tessa Myra Cantado Almeda, PT, DPT, CKTP, CWT, CWC, APTA-CCI

Fueled by her passion to help people and exposed to the effectiveness of physical therapy at a young age through her own father’s physical therapy experience, Tessa Myra Cantado Almeda was determined from the start to someday open her own treatment center.

(Her father went through Physical Therapy for his arthritic pain and problems and benefited tremendously from it even into his old age.)

She holds a doctorate degree in physical therapy from Des Moines University.

Since 1998, she has been dedicated to improving the quality of life of her patients.

She gained her expertise treating patients with varied medical conditions in a number of clinical settings.

She also continued to gain new skills and further training. She is a Certified Kinesio Tape Practitioner (CKTP) from the Kinesiotape Association International.

Additionally, she is a Certified Weight Trainer (CWT) and Wellness Coach (CWC). Both certifications are granted to credentialed professionals by the International Weightlifting Association.

Dr. Almeda is also a certified practitioner in Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (STMT-C).

She is BLS (basic life support) CPR certified.
