Here at Moment of Truth Physical Therapy, we love helping men and women have healthy, active lives, free from pain and restrictions and feeling whole and confident in their health.  

We offer a $39 discovery visit for several reasons:

          1) Most people have never heard of pelvic physical therapy or myofascial release.

          2) If they have heard of it, they have no idea if they need it.

          3) Even if they're sure they need it, they have no idea how we can help or                                                                                         what's going to happen when they come in.

That is not how we want you to feel! We want you to feel honored and heard. We want you to have a sense of peace that this is the right place for you to be, confident in the care you will receive. We want to build some trust, for you to feel safe. That all goes so much better when we meet face-to-face and have a chance to talk about what is going on and how we can help. Click here to request your discovery session now or click here to watch a video about WHY we do them!

We are here to help you know and trust your body, to feel confident in what you need to heal and feel whole again, to have the best pregnancy and delivery you can, without pain, medications or limitations! 


Amy Vander Linden has been a physical therapist for more than 20 years and specializes in John F. Barnes Myofascial Release.  Amy has found this to be the most effective way of eliminating painful restrictions and restoring mobility.
 
Her passion is to help women THRIVE throughout pregnancy and afterward, whether they had a baby 6 weeks ago or 16 years ago (postpartum is forever). She assists them towards wholeness by empowering them to know their bodies, understanding healing processes and offering therapeutic touch, gaining confidence in their ability to do the things they love, and providing education so they and baby can have an optimal start!
 
MFR addresses all types of ailments by relieving restrictions that can be causing 2000 pounds of pressure on pain-sensitive structures. She has also studied Visceral Manipulation to help ensure digestion and organ function at its best.
 
Ultimately Amy created Moment of Truth Physical Therapy because she knew she wanted to focus on individual care, focusing on the much-neglected area of Pelvic Health. She has a podcast Bellies, Babies, and Birth to help connect family resources and community for mamas and their families. She has now expanded to The Healing Space to offer yoga and more services under one roof!

Emily Duncan joined the Moment of Truth and Healing Space team as both a Physical Therapist and yoga instructor in February 2023. Growing up in Litchfield Park, she now lives in Peoria with husband Cody and baby boy, Grant.

Graduating with a Bachelors from GCU and completing her Physical Therapy doctorate at NAU, Emily enjoys All things Women’s Health; living a non-toxic, nutrition focused, Eastern medicine lifestyle and spending her free time outside, cooking, or reading a historical fiction or fantasy book.

Taking her first yoga class at the age of 15 she was immediately hooked, falling in love with the beauty, grace, and challenges of a regular Power Flow or Vinyasa practice.

She is passionate about the science behind the benefits of bodywork and believes that pregnant and postpartum mothers deserve to take time for themselves. She has experienced the ups and downs of pregnancy and postpartum, an unplanned cesarean, and the journey of breastfeeding tongue and lip tied babies; which lead her into wanting to make her focus be helping other mothers during their journey into, and throughout, motherhood.
