Dr. Sneha Gazi and Dr. Maria Muto
The Co-Founders and Board Directors
Dr. Sneha Gazi is a physical therapist and practice owner based in Manhattan who specializes in orthopedics and pelvic health. She received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Columbia University where she completed a Pediatrics Advanced Track. She believes that physical therapy is not a luxury treatment and is essential for optimizing movement. Sneha’s desire to bring her skills beyond her immediate reach drove her to start PTIS in the hopes of bringing PT services to underserved populations. She also has a strong love for teaching and instilling a mindset of service in new clinicians. She strives to help take the PT education to the next level by providing unique opportunities for learning in different countries. Sneha is also a certified yoga instructor and a professional Indian classical dancer and incorporates mindfulness and breathwork into her treatment.
Dr. Maria Muto is a physical therapist based in Manhattan who specializes in orthopedics and pediatrics. Maria received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Columbia University with a focus in Adult Orthopedics. With a strong passion and history of working with athletes, Maria currently works for the Sports Therapy Department at Columbia Doctors. Besides working within the athletic population, Maria works as a pediatric physical therapist that specializes in early intervention. Maria's desire to work with various age groups, populations and cultures, drove her to join PTIS for the hopes of treating people of all backgrounds. Maria has already treated within Italy and Spain and hopes to reach more through the workings of PTIS. Maria also believes that physical health cannot be accomplished without a practice of mental health thus mindfulness is embedded within her treatments.
