About East West Wellness & Rehab

East West Wellness & Rehab was founded by our licensed physical therapist, Dr. Katherin Duong, as a way to bridge the gap in our current healthcare system and provide quality care to patients. Growing up with traditional Chinese medicine and experiencing the benefits of Eastern medicine firsthand, she wanted to combine the practice with her knowledge and clinical expertise as a physical therapist to give patients greater options in their healing journey. She provides a contemporary healing experience, focusing on not only the physical aspects of health, but also the connections it has with mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

East West Wellness & Rehab offers physical therapy, cupping therapy, dry needling, and personal training services. Every session is one-on-one with our licensed physical therapist, allowing us to understand your specific goals and tailor your wellness + rehab program to fit your lifestyle. Along with the personalized visits, our comprehensive care utilizing holistic modalities and patient-collaborative care helps you achieve amazing results in a shorter period of time.

Our team has worked with people of all ages and varying injuries, getting them long-lasting results. We specialize in cupping therapy, dry needling, and treating back pain, but have extensive experience with return-to-sport athletes, knee pain, ankle sprains, shoulder injuries, headaches, chronic pain conditions, and much more.

Our goal is always to help you move better, feel better, and function better. We are passionate about patient education and empowering individuals to take an active role in their healing process to achieve optimal wellbeing.

Our office is located on Eisenhower Avenue in Alexandria, VA and is easily accessible to the people of Alexandria, Springfield, Lorton, Kingstowne, Franconia, Burke, Annandale, and Merrifield.

For greater convenience, we also offer in-home, mobile services to those residing in Fairfax County, Loudoun County, and Prince William County

8 Benefits of Physical Therapy
with East West Wellness & Rehab


Medication provides temporary relief and can lead to a number of negative side effects. Physical therapy, on the other hand, can help your body release endorphins to naturally decrease the pain levels, decreasing your dependence on medication.


Physical therapy can help increase strength that is essential for performing daily activities. We target specific muscle groups and create personalized exercise plans that enable you to build a solid foundation of strength, helping you move with ease and confidence.


Through targeted mobilizations, stretches, and massages, we can help to enhance mobility and range of motion in your joints, ultimately leading to greater flexibility.


Through our extensive patient education, you'll have a better understanding of how to improve your sleep hygiene and adopt pain management techniques to alleviate discomfort that may be keeping you up.


We make every session engaging, informative, and enjoyable. Our holistic approach allows us to tailor your training to be more functional to your specific patient goals, resulting in greater patient satisfaction and progress.


We provide a supportive environment where you can safely reintroduce movements prior to injury and master new skills. As you progress through therapy, you'll feel more confident and capable of handling everyday tasks and movements with ease.


Rather than just treating the symptoms of an injury, we work to identify and address the root cause. By discovering the underlying causes, we can help you recover faster with long-lasting outcomes.


By working with our trained physical therapist, you will gain a deeper understanding of your injury and learn techniques to prevent future injuries. You will also learn how to properly progress movements for a safe recovery.

Inside Look

What to Expect During a
Physical Therapy Session

Oftentimes, most physical therapy clinics don't provide enough time with the licensed physical therapist to be able to fully understand the root cause of the patient's symptoms. Nor do they challenge patients enough for an effective, speedy recovery. At East West Wellness & Rehab, we respect your time. We have curated our rehabilitation sessions to be optimized around your goals, to get you back to your activities as quickly and safely as possible.

Her attention to detail and detailed diagnosis made the session feel very personal unlike other PT clinics.
My brother referred me to East West Wellness and I had a great experience with Dr. Duong. She is extremely knowledgeable and patient. I liked that she worked with me to identify the root cause of my knee pain rather than treat the symptom. Her attention to detail and detailed diagnosis made the session feel very personal unlike other PT clinics that churn out patients. I am looking forward to our next session.
- Elaine Ho
I truly appreciate her focus of 1-on-1 client sessions where I don’t get passed off and treated as a checklist.
As someone who’s had multiple knee surgeries and other injuries, I haven’t had a physical therapist that’s as personable as Dr. Kathy Duong. I truly appreciate her focus of 1-on-1 client sessions where I don’t get passed off and treated as a checklist. It shows how much she cares about her client’s recovery progress. I recently came in for cupping on my back, and she did wonders releasing some tension. Looking forward to future sessions with her!

For the first time in 10 years I was able to bend all the way down and touch my toes without any pain.
I’ve suffered with lower back pain for 10+ years and never thought it would go away! After my consult with Dr. Duong she worked her magic and for the first time in 10 years I was able to bend all the way down and touch my toes without any pain, I already felt like I could breathe better. She worked on me for awhile and gave me some really good morning exercises I can do to help me out of bed when my back pain flares up. I highly recommend Dr. Duong to help you get back on track to a less painful life.

Have Questions About Physical Therapy?

In Virginia, you do not need a doctor's referral in order to be treated by a physical therapist. This is great news because that allows you to see a physical therapist at your earliest convenience. Our Doctor of Physical Therapy is skillfully trained to thoroughly evaluate patients, notice red flags, and know when it is necessary to refer out to other health care providers. Schedule a free consultation with us and learn how we can get you moving better and with less pain, today!
Our goal is always to help you move better, feel better, and function better - without any limitations. We do so by providing quality, one-on-one visits through our "self-pay" or "out-of-network" services. We do not accept insurances, however, our services may still be covered partially or fully, depending on your "out-of network physical therapy" coverage. For more details, you can contact your health insurance provider and use our Insurance Verification Form as a guide. Upon request, a "superbill" may be provided following the end of each visit to file a claim with your insurance.
The benefits of seeking our self-pay/out-of-network services include no surprise medical bills, no visit limitations, no limitations in treatment options, and no insurance authorization delays. With most in-network outpatient clinics, physical therapists (PT) double or triple book patients, resulting in the one-on-one time lasting only 15-30 minutes before being passed on to a PTA or rehab aide. With less one-on-one time given to the patient at the traditional outpatient clinics, patients are stuck with going into the clinic for 2-3 visits/week for 6-12 weeks - racking up a lot of time and co-pays. However, going self-pay allows East West Wellness & Rehab to be contracted to YOU. Your goals are our priorities. This allows us the freedom to provide personalized, one-on-one care with you (and only you) for the entire hour session. With increased one-on-one time with our licensed PT, we only need to see patients 1 visit/week for an average of 4 weeks. That is 2-8 weeks quicker than your in-network PT clinic! Which in the end, saves you time and money. Best of all, you get to return to your daily activities and sports, pain-free, while trusting that the progress you made will be long-lasting and prevent future injuries.
We treat individuals of all ages and health conditions, ranging from kids to older adults, from return-to-sport to balance deficits. At East West, we also work with patients who are looking to implement healthy lifestyle habits to prevent future injuries. Set up a complimentary consultation today to understand how East West Wellness & Rehab can help you with your goals!
At East West Wellness & Rehab, we treat a wide variety of conditions ranging from neck/shoulder injuries, back pain, Sciatica, Golfer's elbow, Tennis elbow, and knee pain - to name a few! We are equipped with Eastern and Western modalities and knowledge to provide you the best care for your symptoms. To allow us to learn more about the activities you're having the most difficulty or pain with, schedule a free consultation call with us.
To best prepare for your first visit, please have the required consent, past medical history, and late/cancellation policy forms completed prior to your visit. The required forms can be found in your email. For your appointment, we recommend wearing loose, comfortable clothing.
Our payment options include cash, credit, debit, check, Health Spending Account (HSA), Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Venmo.
