Dr. Kim Zevin, DPT

Visceral Physical Therapist

Dr. Kim Zevin graduated from the University of Southern California with a Doctorate in physical therapy in 1998. She worked in outpatient orthopedics and aquatic therapy prior to transitioning into pelvic physical therapy.

As a pelvic therapist, she learned how organs above the pelvic floor affect the pelvic organs and pelvic floor muscles which led her to attend the Barral Institute for visceral manipulation. Visceral manipulation is a type of manual therapy that works to increase mobility, tone, and motion of the viscera and connective tissues after they’ve been restricted due to surgical scars, adhesions, illness, posture, or injury. Releasing these organs and tissues can help restore organ function, alleviate pain in surrounding tissues, and repair structural integrity of the entire body.

Dr. Zevin went on to study Craniosacral Therapy at the Upledger institute, where her studies were focused strongly on releasing stored emotions in the body’s organs and tissues. After that coursework, she wanted to learn more about how to treat the head and brain. That led her to train with Dr. Bruno Chikly, French M.D, D.O. who developed The Lymphatic Drainage and The Brain Curriculum.

She is able to treat a wide range of digestive issues—including GERD, irritable bowel disease, constipation, bloating, gastritis, and SIBO—head issues—including concussions, migraines, brain fog, and TMJ—and chronic pelvic issues—including endometriosis, pelvic pain, bladder incontinence, prostate dysfunction, chronic pelvic pain, and more.
