The PABR method™ is a holistic approach to restoring the body to its full potential by using the body’s own nervous system. It is a step-by-step process to change the way the body feels and moves. Breathing and body awareness techniques are taught and customized to you to help you achieve what’s missing in your life. If you want to return to a specific activity, movement or sport, then your treatment will be tailored towards those goals. We take the time to get to know you in one-on-one treatment sessions with only you and your specialist developing your plan to address your limitations and your goals.
Dr. Amy Novotny is the founder of the PABR Institute™ and has a mission to provide pain, stress and anxiety relief to those who seek a naturalistic form of treatment when other treatment methods have fallen short. Her unique approach comes from her experience treating in a variety of settings and with a wide range of patient populations over the past 10 years. Her background in orthopedics, sports, geriatrics, balance disorders, nerve injuries, and most recently, chronic pain; and influences from coursework at the Postural Restoration Institute have helped her develop this treatment method to address a wide variety of painful and restrictive conditions. She customizes all treatment plans to the individual to help them achieve their goals, whether it is to pick up a child, get through a work day pain free or play a sport. She co-authored a #1 Best-Selling book Don’t Quit: Stories of Perseverance, Courage and Faith, which shares her journey on how and why she developed the PABR Method™. Her ability to speak French and Spanish has allowed her to communicate with and help various clients from all over the world, including France, Mexico, Central America and South America. She has a variety of interests including running 40 marathons, running 10 ultra marathons (including two 100 milers), photographing wildlife and landscapes all over the world that has led to several of her images being chosen as Photos of the Day, most notably National Geographic Your Shot World Top Photo of the Day.
