“For the first time in 20 years, I finally have my life back! After 3 surgeries, unhelpful PT and years of opioids, Veronica has given me the help I always needed. The improvement is unbelievable and friends & family who had not seen me for awhile were amazed. I can now climb stairs and walk with so much less pain after only two months of treatment! I can even sleep through the night again! I’m not stopping now! I am so anxious to continue this treatment: even for occasional ‘tune-ups’. I cannot recommend her enough!!” -Most Sincerely, Virginia M.
“About 4 years ago I found myself in physical therapy for what was deemed to be a ‘foot’ problem. Veronica had me walk around a bit and said ‘I don’t think it’s a foot problem, I think it’s spine related.’ A few x-rays later we were dealing with 4 bulging discs using physical therapy that greatly improved things. I had been doing ‘regular’ yoga but when Veronica started the Medical Therapeutic Workshops I signed up immediately knowing that as a physical therapist she was going to be able to teach in a way that would help all the participants, with various challenges, learn how to do yoga safely. That has proven to be so true – her students learn how to modify exercises for a variety of issues. The setting and pace are perfect and since no one is trying out for the Olympics there’s time for questions, demos etc. I was recently diagnosed with osteoporosis and as we do various moves in class she’s been highlighting things that are good for building bone. It is that personal touch that brings students back every week.” -Pat K.
“The awareness of how my body functions that comes from Veronica’s class allows me to adapt the asanas to my best advantage. This class would be useful for anybody/everybody!” -Holly H.
“I highly recommend Veronica to anyone suffering from neck or back problems. As a nurse practitioner who specializes in spine care, I have seen many of my patients personally benefit from Veronica’s expertise. I am grateful to have Veronica as a resource in our community!” -Karen P.
“Veronica, you have taught me how to listen to my body and not push through the pain. Correct form and building of strength comes with time and patience. You are a wonderful teacher and I love your class.” -Jonelle N.
“Since my last appointment, I feel stronger and more in control of my body. I am not afraid to move, bend down, lift, climb, run, turn etc in fear of causing more pain. My muscles are getting stronger and can support my fluid movement. I am excited and encouraged about this process and ready to move forward!” -Tina D.
“I have attended Veronica’s (Pilates) class for a few years now. I have learned so much about spinal health while increasing core strength which has lead to a reduction of myofascial pain but I was also a 1/4 inch taller at my last wellness physical!” -Felicia D.
“I would highly recommend MTY, Pilates and Veronica Jun Whetsel’s training to anyone… I have personally been blessed with great success from maintaining my core, doing Pilates and consistently doing the personalized training program Veronica made for me. In 2004 I fell and broke my back, having sustained a burst fracture that required instrumentation and fusion to repair and support that missing vertebra – after Shock Trauma I needed core strengthening, stabilization and education to be able to live life as “normally” as possible. Veronica has been key in my journey of living a “new normal,” managing pain and understanding better overall wellness. The MTY class really helped me.” -Kevin Lueck, KB Lueck Building Consultants, LLC
“I love Veronica and highly recommend MTY. I am very pleased to now have the opportunity to sign up for two days a week! I have taken and loved MTY from Veronica since 2013 when she held the classes at AAMC! I followed Veronica to Evolutions where I am now an active member. Notwithstanding I weigh 300 pounds, I am able to do and benefit from all of the movements in MTY I appreciate the informed modifications that Veronica recommends for me. MTY is my foundational physical activity, supporting my expansion into other exercises including Pilates. I have complete and blessed trust in Veronica’s expansive and detailed knowledge as a physical therapist, Pilates instructor, and yoga instructor. I may still weigh 14 stone, but I have much better mobility and core strength! Thank you, Veronica Jun Whetsel!” -Scott D.
“I attended Veronica’s MTY class through chemotherapy, rehabbing after surgeries and now for overall body care and maintenance. Veronica Jun Whetsel is an amazing practitioner. She articulates so clearly and educates her students to ensure a safe and productive session no matter what your level!” -Dawn O.
“I have been seeing Veronica for almost a year for my chronic neck, back, hip pain. I was shocked she was able to figure out what my issues were before I had an MRI and X-ray done. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to the human body. I have had her teach me medical therapeutic yoga as well as Pilates to help stabilize my core. She is a true healer and takes a passion in her work and helping to make people feel their best. I have been to several doctors and physical therapists in the past and she is by far the most knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to elevating my everyday pain. She really listens to your needs and requests. I would highly recommend her to anyone dealing with pain. She has made a big difference in my life.” -Terri B.
“This is my second experience with Veronica as my physical therapist. She is both caring and extremely knowledgeable when providing physical therapy to my chronic back and neck issues. I sought her out after receiving less than acceptable care at another place. With just 3 treatments so far I feel much better. Thanks.” -Janis S.
“Veronica healed me a year ago and enabled me to return to my regular yoga class. I still practice her suggested routine daily without pain. She is a wonderful teacher and healer who goes out of her way to meet your needs. I will always turn to her for MTY if I’m in any pain again.” -Susan E.
“I have attended Veronica’s class and love it. She is a great yoga instructor and educator. I have chronic back, neck and hip pain and the poses and stretches I’ve learned from her have helped me improve my posture and I’m finally starting to feel some relief from my pain. I’ve learned a lot about the human body and what I need to do to strengthen my core to help alleviate my pain. I recommend her class for anyone experiencing pain or even people who want a less intense yoga class.” -Terri S.
“Veronica makes yoga fun, educational, productive, accessible and SAFE!! I’ve carried the MTY lessons into “regular” yoga classes and my own practice. I love understanding how and why I need to adapt poses to my individual and fluctuating medical issues. Her dedication to wellness and stability is truly empowering for anyone with chronic or acute conditions. (And she’s very cool too <3 )” -Ana C.
