Yoga Therapy Bar is proud to introduce you to the owner Dr. Nekita Sullivan, Clemson Alumna.

Dr. Nekita Sullivan opened Yoga Therapy Bar as a therapeutic yoga physical therapy studio to provide holistic health and wellness services. She has 20 plus years of experience treating youth, adults, seniors, athletes, and those with special needs (including autism spectrum disorder). This yoga therapy specialty is customized to improve physical and mental health and wellness.  She provides modifications for students in yoga class so that poses can be beginner friendly or advanced for the experienced yoga students. She is also manual physical therapist that believes in the healing power of "touch."  She is a proud SC native, MUSC & Clemson Alumna thrilled to be reunited with her Clemson family. Nekita is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Certified Yoga Teacher, Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider, Certified Hand Therapist, and Certified Health Education Specialist. She has evolved into an accomplished holistic stress management expert. Yoga Therapy Bar received its S.C. Small & Minority Business Contracting & Certification of Woman-Owned Small Business in 2021 and is also SAM Registered.

Dr. Sullivan has worked in the traditional model of healthcare insurance for 20 years. The typical experience for patients included: waiting several weeks to start due to insurance authorization and documentation going through multiple administration channels, being seen with 2 to 3 other patients simultaneously, talking to the therapist while they spent most time on the computer, being charged $50 copays for treatments 2 to 3 times a week totaling approximately $100 to $150 per week for 6 to 8 weeks totaling $1200, receiving unexpected bills in the mail as insurance denies paying for some services, being discharged before injury resolution because insurance limited the number of visits, not being able to receive holistic or other treatments that aren't reimbursed by insurance, receiving treatment for one injury at a time, being passed off to other therapists or assistants, and more... In order to provide the BEST COMPASSIONATE care to her patients Dr. Sullivan uses the direct model. The direct model allows her to schedule patients within the week without a prescription, spend a full hour 1 on 1 and answer questions, see all her patients once a week, treat multiple injuries simultaneously, communicate with patients directly via email, provide video or PDF format home exercise programs, utilize various treatments, offer patients a flat fee per visit or a package fee for 1 month totaling $1000, the patient gets the care that they deserve, and they know how much they will pay up front! A special message from Dr. Nekita: "It is my sincere desire to offer my physical therapy patients, their caregivers, and yoga students a double portion of compassion SUPER-SIZED!" #thecompassionatePT&yogateacher

Luv, Peace, Compassion, Physical Therapy & Yoga
