Justine Calderwood, MSPT
Owner And Founder Of The Healing Spot
Justine Calderwood, MSPT is Colorado Springs’ and Teller County’s leading physical therapist who specializes in helping women during pregnancy and beyond to heal and feel empowered. She loves helping women feel better and learn to manage their pain and concerns independently. She helps women in ways that often surprises them, coming from a physical therapy practice, and that’s what sets The Healing Spot Physical Therapy apart from the clinics down the street.
Justine founded The Healing Spot because she was frustrated with the way she saw her patients passed from therapist to therapist with little continuity of care, rushed through sessions and not given the time, attention and resources they needed to truly get better. She is a small town Iowa girl who was influenced by the integrity and nurturing of her family and she knew her patients deserved better care.
Justine saw the way women with pelvic health issues are treated in the traditional healthcare system and got frustrated with how many women are told that their pain and concerns (like leaking, pain with sex, prolapse, etc) are just “normal after having babies” or “it’s because you’re getting older” instead of being offered a
solution and peace of mind. Too many women are told to just live with it, to take medicine or that surgery is the only option. It’s her drive and passion for providing quality care while helping women avoid medications, injections and surgery that she pours into her work at The Healing Spot and into leading staff members.
Justine graduated with a Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy from The University of Kansas Medical Center way back in 2002, and is a Certified Birth Healing Specialist, an Advanced Myofascial Release Therapist, a Reiki Master Practitioner and a Level 2 Low Pressure Fitness Trainer. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her husband Marc and their two children Taryn and Piper, working out at the gym and hiking with their two dogs, Ollie and Pennie. As a family you’ll often find them traveling, scuba diving, riding ATVs and snowmobiles and hanging out with friends and family.
Marketing Assistant and Virtual Assistant
Petra Snazle is the Marketing Assistant and Virtual Assistant for The Healing Spot. She has been helping behind-the-scenes since 2019. Petra enjoys daily family adventures with her husband John, her two boisterous boys Samuel and Martin, and their hyper border collie (Prince) Harry somewhere between the UK and Europe (due to the lockdown currently mainly near Prague, Czech Rep). As she’s ‘’pulling the strings’’ behind the scenes you can’t see her, but she can see you :-). Her main task is to make sure that you can see Justine and experience all the amazing work at The Healing Spot as much as possible. She manages all the behind-the-scenes work related to our social media, YouTube channel, email newsletter and online courses.
