An Inside Look: Your First Visit With Urban Wellness Clinic
By Emily Kiberd
Every day we get asked, "What happens during my first visit with Urban Wellness?" and "What makes you different?" We break down that question here!

Our goal is not to see our patients 3x/week for 12 weeks like traditional rehabilitation but to give you the tools to empower yourself. Our patients use these "knowledge bombs" when they feel discomfort come on a

Where all the Lady podcasters at?
By Emily Kiberd
In my last post, I mentioned some of my favorite podcasts that I gobble up on the daily riding the F train to and from work, and walking the sleeping baby to school. Pretty much any time I have a free moment since they're easy to digest and get the motivation mojo going.

Born Again Crawler
By Emily Kiberd
Baby Elvis has been an amazing teacher and inspiration on how we learn to move. Watching him crawl all over the house has taught me so much about reflexive stability, how we acquire a new skill, and all the amazing knowledge we arrive in this world already possessing.

Let’s Talk About Bloating, Ladies!
By Emily Kiberd
Millions of people are bloated right now. Are you one of them? Maybe you have trouble zipping up your pants after a meal, or you’re so filled with hot air (literally) you’re afraid to go out in public for fear of letting out some gas. Ever notice looking like you have a food baby in the mirror after eating certain foods? You’re not the only one. Bloating (often accompanied by gas) comes in many forms, and happens for many reasons.

A Podcast A Day Experiment
By Emily Kiberd
Election season got you down? Yeah me too! Everywhere I look, there's gloom and doom news of new cabinet members to be elected soon, hard to find reports from Standing Rock, and Aleppo refuge updates. It's all consuming and defeating, ugh, what can I do to help? I've donated to Standing Rock and to a recount in the swing states.
