Denise Bluhm, PT 

My name is Denise Bluhm.  I attended physical therapy school at the University of Evansville in Evansville, IN.  I graduated in 1999 with my Master’s degree in physical therapy.  I have worked locally for the past nine years and was happy to join Greater Brunswick Physical Therapy in 2011.

I enjoy providing hands-on, holistic care with compassion, kindness, and fun.  I specialize in and most enjoy providing craniosacral therapy that I blend that with other techniques including; manual lymphatic drainage, myofascial release, muscle energy technique, strain counterstrain, joint and soft tissue mobilization, and therapeutic exercise to help people achieve their goals.

I live a passionate life and feel very fortunate.  I am glad I found a career that allows me to witness and aid in the amazing healing potential of the human body.  When I am not working I enjoy traveling, rock hounding, hiking, and doing just about anything in nature.  Life is such an amazing experience that I try to live to the fullest.
