Helga grew up in Germany where she hiked and skied in the Alps throughout her childhood. She came to the United States in 1974 as an exchange student. Shortly after returning to Europe, she and her friend bought a VW van. They drove through Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia cialisfromuk.com. This year of travel through 18 countries opened Helga's heart and mind.
Later, she received her degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Colorado in 1988. In her 18 years of private practice in Alaska, she focused on orthopedic, pediatric and aquatic therapy. During this time she became a mother of two beautiful daughters. Her young children influenced an interest in pediatric physical therapy. Helga now has 15 years experience with early intervention as a developmental therapist with infants and children.
Helga was drawn to Portland because of the holistic approach in this community. In 2009 she joined Moxie Body Physical Therapy. She enjoyed working in the simple, safe space at “Opening to Life” where she could be independent but part of a healing community.
In May, 2010 she bought the business because it reflected her own values in physical therapy, yoga and healing practice so well. Making it even more her own, she changed the name of her private practice to “Helga Lang Physical Therapy”, in January of 2012.
Helga has also completed yoga teacher training with Erich Schiffmann and is presently deepening her studies in Svaroopa yoga. She is teaching a “Stretch and Awareness” yoga class herself at Sachi Wellness in West Linn.
She has a strong background in manual therapies such as myofascial release, cranio-sacral therapy for adults and infants, visceral manipulation, fluid pressure dynamics (Lowen System) and extensive training using the low level laser.
Helga’s goal is to provide supportive client-centered care combining holistic and traditional physical therapy so that clients both heal their bodies and bring loving kindness to themselves.
She is curious by nature, committed to lifelong learning and inspired by her clients and caring community.
