 “I have known Kim Lawler-Coyle, PT, DPT for Decades. I’m the CEO of the Upledger Institute and have had the opportunity to get to know Kim along our long journey. She has always endeavored to achieve the highest level of treatment skill in whatever treatment approach that she has employed, which there are many. She always has great input for the Upledger Institute and IAHE. She has been very generous with her time and is a wonderful mentor for many of the students who have gone through our classes. Kim is just one of those professionals you just cannot forget, because she is kind, intelligent and desires the best for the students she teaches and the clients she treats.  She also desires the best for all her staff of Clinicians, and has ensured that they have received many of our courses offered through the IAHE as well as her personal Mentorship.  Kim was very kind to take time out of her busy schedule to treat my father in the later stages of his life, when she would visit Palm Beach, Florida. I can tell you, my father sure knew that she had a Gift and so do I. So if you’re wondering if Kim and her Team can help You with your Health Condition, please don’t hesitate to call her clinic,  as she and her staff will make a Big Difference in the quality of your Life!”

John Matthew Upledger, CEO Upledger Institute


 

“In the 1980’s, Kim started training with me when I was first developing the Visceral Manipulation courses in the United States through IAHE and the Upledger Institute.  We have all come a long way since those days.  Kim has been passionate about all types of Manual Therapy and with that passion it has driven her to learn as much as possible over all these years of being a Physical Therapist. Myself and all my colleagues have a lot of respect and appreciation for Kim’s skills and knowledge which she has brought to our courses over these many years, particularly with helping students in the courses to learn this work. She is a wonderful person and I consider her a friend. She is a well respected Doctor of Physical Therapy and I would not hesitate to seek her help along with her staff at Focus On Health.”

Jean-Pierre Barral, DO – Developer of Visceral Manipulation


“Your understanding of how physical disorders affect the dental patient is only exceeded by your ability to manage them. You have been a great help to our patients.”

Terry Tanaka, DDS Chula Vista


“My patient’s have made remarkable progress with physical therapy under Kim’s direction. I believe they make great progress because of the myriad of Hands-On treatment techniques they use, which are not commonly available by other Physical Therapists.  Focus On Health has made a big difference in the lives of my patients.”

Steven C. Dennis, MD

“Kim and her clinic, Focus On Health, have provided the finest of Oral Physical Therapy Care over so many Decades I cannot count them.  Kim and her clinic will not let you down with the Results that she achieves with her integrative forms of care.  I wanted to make sure that the community knows how Great she and her team are.  Often times, I would have a surgery take place just before Christmas or Thanksgiving and Kim would find a way to help that person, even when it impacted her vacation time. She is a genuine and caring professional that I have loved the opportunity to have worked with all these Years.”

 

Ronald Kaminishi, DDS, Oral Surgeon

Takeo Yamamoto, DDS (TMJ Specialist)  Newport Beach

Patient Testimonials

“Four years ago my world suddenly spun out of orbit. I was 15 pounds underweight, unable to eat, function or cope. I spent most of my time in bed, exhausted, depressed, in a daze and very fearful, crying and screaming in pain and hoping I’d fall asleep and never wake up. The burning pain in my face, head and mouth was excruciating, and my entire body felt twisted, and tight, tight, tight, like being bound through and through by a hundred bungee cords, pulling my body in different directions. After suffering like this for a year and a half, I finally found my way to the team at Focus On Health. Everything began to change for the better. Hope was reborn.

This gifted team has saved me from perishing in the valley of despair, and have given me tools for helping myself. I am now a joyful woman, functioning well as I continue my healing process. My help has come exclusively from the Focus On Health professionals, and I have been able to add to their success through the self-help strategies I have gleaned on my own.
Focus On Health has touched me with compassion, inspiration, healing, and enlightenment. Now at 53, I am able to embark on pursuing my dream to become a therapist myself so that I can help others too. Who would have thought? I could have never come this far without my friends at Focus On Health standing beside me, and behind me nudging me gently forward to my goals.The ground I’ve gained is remarkable, but it has not ‘just happened’ overnight. True healing is a slow process, and it begins inside. It takes willingness to learn and change, tenacity, trust, patience—and time, especially when you have a complex condition like mine. In retrospect, I wouldn’t change a thing. The journey has been extremely painful, yes, but also one of my life’s most rewarding growth experiences, thanks to my friends at Focus On Health. My struggle has not been in vain: ‘There is nothing the body suffers that the soul may not profit by.’ I know this is true.

If someone you know is in dysfunction or pain —maybe it’s you—and you are about to give up, please don’t. There is hope and real help. And help is spelled ‘Focus On Health’.”

Karen G, Laguna Niguel

 

“The people at Focus On Health are what makes the difference. They have all of the elements that are missing from most healthcare practices today. They don’t treat you like a number or just a bill. You’re treated like a human being that needs attentive, thorough and compassionate care. I’d give them my highest recommendation.”

Stephanie P., Irvine


“I would like to thank each one of you at Focus On Health for helping me through this ordeal which I experienced these past few months. Your group here is a special one. Your help and consideration were genuine. Thank you for all the differences you made in my life and God bless.”

“They take the time to properly assess your problem and work with you to develop the best plan to help you recover quickly and safely.”

Linda B.. , Corona Del Mar

“The staff at Focus On Health have been so helpful. They are compassionate, extremely skilled and are the only ones who have truly understood my health challenges. Their integrative approach has made all the difference.”

Stephanie L., Costa Mesa

“After 2.5 years of dealing with medical ‘experts’ who address and identify my daughter as a collection of symptoms, we have found renewed hope working with the staff at Focus On Health. My daughter is recognized and treated as a whole, complex person.”

Patricia W., Mission Viejo

“I came to Focus On Health with very little hope and a timeline in place for a ‘legal suicide’. My pain level was so high in my surgical site that it was all I could see or feel and it controlled my life. The staff at Focus On Health looked beyond my post-op issues and took on my 34 years of degenerative rheumatoid arthritis as well as all my other health issues. Subsequently my timeline came around in three months (on my birthday) and I celebrated that day instead of dying from chronic pain and disability. I now sleep at night, eat several meals a day, have regained my hearing, balance and began small tasks again, including gardening. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for Focus On Health.”

Cindy R., Newport Beach

“The treatment and emotional support that Focus On Health provides is like nothing else I have experienced. Each person that I work with is an exceptionally knowledgeable, caring, with the ability to motivate and provide results. When I began at Focus On Health, I relied on heavy pain medication. Now I’m off all my pain medications and each week I feel better and stronger. I sincerely can’t say enough about Focus On Health and recommend them to anyone needing physical therapy.”

Linda C., Huntington Beach

“This is the only treatment center that has helped me to function at home and work. The treatment is so gentle compared to other physical therapy practices. Your personnel are wonderful and caring.”

Lindsay V., Los Angeles

“Focus On Health has been a wonderful alternative to taking more and more medication, and having a life full of pain. When I walked into Focus On Health I could hardly walk, my days in bed and incapacitated were regular. Today, my days are full, my chronic pain is low to nothing. They help me through ‘flare ups’ and their tenderness and caring is very obvious.”

Rebecca M., San Diego

“I found all the staff to be warm, open-hearted, who lift one’s spirits with hope and kindness. The gentle and skilled hands of the therapists were successful in helping me either eliminate or reduce my suffering drastically in all my symptom areas. Now I look forward to leading a pain-free life and one filled with dreams for a promising future.”

Lorraine R., New York

Namaste! Sharon G., Costa Mesa

“I am a 34 year old lifelong surfer. I’ve also been a competitive surfer since age 12 and surfed at the professional level since age 18. I suffered a severe head and neck injury from a surfing accident. At my worst, I was legally blind due to the injury and in severe pain that I could barely stand up. I was given little hope of improving after my accident by other medical professionals until I came to Focus On Health. Kim Lawler-Coyle and her staff’s expert knowledge of CranioSacral Therapy, Neural Manipulation, Myofascial Release, Visceral Manipulation, The Feldenkrais Method®, Lymph Drainage Therapy, and RedCord Therapy made my recovery a success. I’m now able to work, drive and surf again. Focus On Health put me back together and encouraged me along the way as I struggled forward to get better. I do not know where I would be today without these professionals who genuinely cared about me.”

Bjorn H., Costa Mesa

“I want to thank everyone at FOH for the fine Physical Therapy you provided for me. Your holistic and western methods not only helped me physically but mentally as well. You’ve given me confidence and a new outlook on how to proceed with my disorder. I want to especially thank Kim for taking her personal time to understand my disorder and to teach me how to cope, she’s truly a trooper. Great staff! Great Facility!”

Best to all, Robert P, Santa Ana

“To anyone suffering with chronic pain;
You are not alone, but there is help available! You may not have heard of myofascial release before, but it has been a truly helpful and lasting solution for me, with over 20 years of lumbar back pain, dance and skiing injuries and chronic nerve compression. The Focus on Health Physical Therapy Corporation offers such encouraging and kind support. The providers and practitioners spend an entire hour with you, unlike other physical therapy facilities where an aide teaches you exercises and you do them under their supervision., maybe you have 15 minutes of evaluation with a Licensed Physical Therapist. At Focus on Health, the certified therapist not only guides your program, but also treats your pain with a hands-on deep technique that moves and stretches the inner fibers which surround and connect muscles, tendons, organs and nerves. This opens trapped and scarred anatomy, improving movement and circulation, allowing muscles and fibers better alignment, giving muscles the freedom to build strength. With patience and ongoing treatment the pain begins to subside. I have been a patient for 5 months, visiting just once a week. I am ready to continue what I have been taught for the rest of my life. I no longer take powerful pain medication. My confidence has improved. I am willing to try new things, hike longer, and dance a little more. What you will find at Focus on Health is a family of compassionate individuals who care more about helping people than making a huge profit. Every minute of time spent there, you are being cared for, listened to and given solutions. I encourage you to seek out this treatment. It could change your life, like it has mine.”
