    Rainbow Embrace Physical Therapy was founded by Samantha Hoover, DPT who is a bisexual white cisgender woman (Pronouns: she/her/hers). She built this clinic to help offset the intolerant and unacceptable treatment of the LGBTQIA+ community in medical settings. With the creation of REPT, Samantha aims to raise awareness of the barriers and harmful inequities within the medical community through an intersectional lens by providing a safe space for people in the LGBTQIA+ community to receive physical therapy.

    Samantha’s expertise is informed by a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the Medical University of South Carolina along with a background in personal training and mixed martial arts. Her PT experience includes orthopedic, neurologic, and pelvic health conditions for all stages of life. Samantha’s passion and life long commitment to learning will guarantee high quality, equitable, and compassionate service for every client in her care.

    Come join this webinar to hear Samantha's presentation on physical therapy and her clinic!
