Biases that exist in the medical community today are a violation of the Hippocratic oath that all healthcare workers take to “do no harm” and they are directly associated with negative medical outcomes affecting the LGBTQIA+ community.
At Rainbow Embrace Physical Therapy, we treat all bodies with equity and evidence-based care. We offer services from a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy with specialized training in pelvic and orthopedic health specific to the trans, non-binary, intersex, and genderqueer community.
Meet the Owner
Rainbow Embrace Physical Therapy was founded by Samantha Hoover, DPT who is a bisexual white cisgender woman (Pronouns: she/her/hers). She built this clinic to help offset the intolerant and unacceptable treatment of the LGBTQIA+ community in medical settings.
With the creation of REPT, Samantha aims to raise awareness of the barriers and harmful inequities within the medical community through an intersectional lens by providing a safe space for people in the LGBTQIA+ community to receive physical therapy.
Samantha’s expertise is informed by a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the Medical University of South Carolina along with a background in personal training and mixed martial arts. Her PT experience includes orthopedic, neurologic, and pelvic health conditions for all stages of life. Samantha’s passion and life long commitment to learning will guarantee high quality, equitable, and compassionate service for every client in her care.
What Our Friends Say
“We had a great experience with Rainbow Embrace PT. Sami was very professional and knowledgeable and she had a great bedside manner with me (the parent) and with my toddler. Doing PT through telehealth was incredibly helpful and productive, especially during these trying times. Sami used our time effectively to give us the most support and practice during the session and she provided us with a variety of exercises to work on each individual skill.”Isabella and Emelia Yearwood
