The BTPT Story…

Melissa Buffer Trenouth, MSPT, has been an orthopedic physical therapist and dance medicine specialist based out of Kendall Square in Cambridge for over13 years. She started, built, and managed a bustling outpatient clinic for a small local company, then for a national corporate PT company from the ground up. After many years of long hours, intense drive, and thousands of patients, Melissa has decided to slow it down and return to a professional practice geared towards what she feels most passionate about; A full body vision with a strong anchor in centering the body with the brain’s intention.

Melissa has extensive experience with orthopedic and neuromuscular issues as well as post operative and chronic conditions. She uses a wide range of manual techniques, hands on neuromuscular retraining, and a specific corrective exercise prescription to ease movement, balance the body, and reduce pain.  Every body and story is unique and requires a specifically catered plan to address the individual needs. Melissa uses a creative approach to do this in an engaging, collaborative way.

Melissa also has been working the Boston/Cambridge/Somerville dance, theater, and circus communities for many years and continues to provide back stage care for American Repertory Theater, Huntington Theater, and area dance companies as well.  She was a member of Boston’s Rainbow Tribe Dance Company for 13 years, and continues to be very active in the area dance community. Melissa has been a yoga and pilates student for many years and incorporates these disciplines into her PT practice. She is the very proud mom of 2 wonderful girls, Annabelle and Rose, and is fully supported and devoted to her husband, Jason, her PT mentor and best buddy.
