Massage and Physical Therapy
Massage and Physical Therapy
Bodies in Balance-Bodies in Motion, BIBBIM for short, provides a synthesis of therapeutic techniques to decrease pain, muscle stiffness, tightness, and improve muscular and postural balance.
Owned and operated by Leslie Sutton PT LMT SET, BIBBIM combines leading edge, complementary, and traditional therapy services to provide the most effective therapy session for your unique circumstance.
Keys to a successful treatment:
Professionalism: For me it includes everything from maintaining a professional therapist/client relationship, to maintaining an office environment that is supportive of your care, to keeping my skills up-to-date.
Prevention: The right treatment and the right education for all therapy services to avert further injury.
Differentiation: I will provide a mixture of traditional and complementary alternative techniques that are highly effective at addressing your unique needs. I strive to treat the core cause of a problem, not just the symptoms.
Leslie will discuss and instruct you on exercises to help achieve and maintain your results from treatment.

As the Stay at Home restrictions are starting to lift, I am working very hard to make sure I understand what actions are needed to reopen safely. I’ve been following suggestions and posts from my Massage and Physical Therapy associations, the local, state, and federal governments, other businesses in my field, and many medical experts. I can tell you there are a lot of very smart people working very hard to get this right the first time, including me. While there are many common themes and a lot of very good ideas, there is not one definitive set of guidelines for reopening a Massage or Physical Therapy practice.
Because of this I am targeting the first of June for my official full reopening. A major part of this decision is my need to see if the gradual reopening of Colorado causes a fast spike in the spread of the Covid virus or not. I am seeing too many people not using face masks and gathering close together this early in the reopening. It has me very concerned for their safety, my safety, and your safety.
I am choosing to practice extreme caution right now instead of rushing things. You are very important to me. My clients come to me to address issues. Many have some sort of compromised health issues or family members at risk of this virus that makes the current environment outside dangerous.
Here is what you can expect for the month of May:
While my full reopening is in June, I may be able to see some clients earlier as my COVID safety supplies arrive. Some items have been on order for over a month now. I consider this a soft reopening that will give me time to integrate the new safety and cleaning protocols I will be following.
What you can expect before, during and after a session:
In prep of reopening, I have completely cleaned the office. The carpet has been cleaned. I have removed some of the shelves, equipment, and a few decorations to make cleaning between clients easier. I have purchased some drawers to store my cups, lasers, and other items in closed spaces. The fish are still there and doing wonderfully.
Thank you for your trust and understanding in these uncertain times. I truly appreciate you and look forward to seeing you. I am excited to apply some of the new skills I learned during my ‘sabbatical’.
