Antoinette Vastenburg, PT, GCFP
Antoinette has always been fascinated by how the human body can move and heal. She has enthusiastically learned a variety of sports both growing up and still as an adult. Antoinette wishes for everyone to move freely and do what they love to do, which led her into studying physical therapy at an early age. She graduated from "de Akademie voor Fysiotherapie Leeuwarden" in the Netherlands, her home country, in 1987. Since then she has continued her path to improve her understanding of musculoskeletal injury healing through continuing education concerning various aspects of physical therapy. To deepen her understanding of motor learning as it relates to injury healing she attended a Feldenkrais Professional training program through the Movement Institute, Berkeley, CA. She received her certification in 1999. Combining traditional physical therapy with movement re-education through the Feldenkrais method has helped many of her patients to regain their functional abilities.

She has been working with her husband at Active Solutions Physical Therapy since 2002.
