Zeina A. Grifoni
Owner and Founder of Synergy+ since 2005
Board certified physical therapist since 2003
Certified Pilates instructor since 2004
Zeina has always wanted to help others through her work. As a water polo player, scuba diver, and aerial artist, runner, and cyclist, her love of movement lead her into the world of rehabilitation. Zeina received her Master’s degree in Physical Therapy at Samuel Merritt College in Oakland, California in 2002, and her Pilates Instructor Certification with Ellie Herman in 2004. In September 2005, she opened her own practice, Synergy + Physical Therapy and Pilates Studio, in Marin County, CA, in order to create an ideal environment for the healing and wellness of her clients. Zeina’s main focus is Pilates-based orthopedic care including sports rehab, chronic pain, pre and post-natal rehabilitation, cancer rehabilitation, pre and post-op care, and overall health and wellness. She teaches continuing education instruction courses to physical therapists, Pilates instructors, personal trainers, and the general public. Opening Synergy+, is a dream come true for her, as it allows her to harness her energy, athletic background, and education into one discipline. Besides enjoying as much time as possible with her three children and husband Tiziano, her hobbies include hiking and running, mountain biking, swimming, rock climbing, ballroom dancing, as well as participating in mini triathlons and distance runs.
I really like the customized focus on the areas that require the most attention. The home exercise videos are great and I use them everyday to remind me about the proper form. The studio is very warm and welcoming and everyone is so professional and caring. I also really respect the punctuality of the studio – my appointments have always started and ended right on time. Zeina is awesome.
After having pain for over a month I walk out feeling I know how to address the issues.
