1) "My surgeon was mentally preparing me to be handicapped for the rest of my life…"
"Finding Luna and PT Victoria Gray was a stroke of luck that literally changed my life. I had a comminuted fracture of my right arm, broken left arm, and wrist from a mountain biking accident. Kaiser changed me to phone in PT due to covid, since you have this small window for your recovery I felt that in person would be best. My surgeon was mentally preparing me to be handicapped for the rest of my life, due in a large part to the knowledge, compassion, and cheerleading Victoria provided me. I'm 95% recovered, it was a year last week since my accident. Thank you Victoria and Luna for changing my life."

2) "... I'm feeling brand new and as if the accident never happened!...it truly changed my life!"
"I used Luna in October 2019 after a car accident for physical therapy for my neck. I had never heard of Luna before but I can tell you right now, I will ONLY be using Luna for my physical therapy needs for the future. After having no luck trying to make an appointment at any PT clinics in my area, as the doctor recommended starting right away, I was referred to Luna and they were able to get me an appointment right away. It's such a luxury not only just to have a physical therapist come to your house but also bring all of the necessary equipment needed for a session as well! After working with Rob Thomsen for a number of weeks, I'm feeling brand new and as if the accident never happened! The comfort and ease of paying with the app and scheduling appointments within the app makes it a BREEZE! I highly recommend to anyone needing PT to use Luna as it truly changed my life!"

3) "Luna was a lifesaver for me."
"Luna was a lifesaver for me. I needed physical therapy to rehab after a broken foot, but I couldn't take the extra time off work to travel to see a PT. Luna came to me at a time that worked for me and the care was excellent. My therapist, Ayonna, put so much energy into helping me and my walking seriously improved with her treatment. I can't recommend this service enough."

4) "...for the first time since my pain issue started, I'm positive of actually being able to heal without surgery…"
"I'm so upset I didn't contact Luna sooner!!! Being uninsured and inexperienced working with a physical therapist, when seeing the cost for having a PT do house calls on the website I first thought it was either some sort of scam or a typo and dismissed the idea of scheduling. PT house calls [cost] less than any of the other PTs in my area? Yeah, right!!! Yes! Turns out it was/is right! So far I've only had one session, but am looking forward to the upcoming sessions my PT Charlie and I have scheduled! Scheduled without having to pay in advance, I must add! My PT, Charles, was Great! He arrived right on time and immediately had me at ease and comfortable with his professionalism and friendly politeness. During our session, he listened fully without trying to rush me or dismiss my uneducated but web-based self-diagnosed ideas of what my pain is about. Something even the doctors I've seen for it never really seems to do! I'm so happy with just the slight outcome of doing the daily exercises so far (it's only been 3 days!) that for the first time since my pain issue started, I'm positive of actually being able to heal without surgery... which is the worst-case scenario for my piriformis syndrome, but where my mind had gone to after trying other means & methods to heal it myself without any positive changes in my pain. Looking forward to Charlie's next session and am so happy I set up the first appointment!"

5) "I am thrilled to say that my back feels great today for the first time in months!"
Loved my experience with Wendy Peters yesterday. I have never had PT and wasn't sure what to expect, but I had aggravated a muscle in my back when I started weight lifting a few months ago and decided to give it a try. My GP had referred me to a PT facility a few months ago, but when I went there I did not feel comfortable with the crowd of people there, so I did not stay. Wendy was knowledgeable and a good communicator. I got some great tips to work out the muscle (rhomboid) on my own. Love the app on Luna that has a video of the exercises we practiced and discussed. I am thrilled to say that my back feels great today for the first time in months! Thanks, Wendy!

6) "To be able to get PT treatments in my home all through Covid has been a godsend for me."
"My experience was great! To be able to get PT treatments in my home all through Covid has been a godsend for me. In addition, Charlie has given me tools that no other PT has given me for my back spasms. We worked through many issues that have been contributing causes and have worked to strengthen my weak areas. Charlie has given me a program that is doable at home or while traveling. I can't say enough about how grateful I am to Virginia for providing the referral and how grateful I am to Charlie for his knowledge, tools, and clear explanations of what I am feeling and why. I wholeheartedly recommend Luna and Charlie."

7) "He knew exactly how to bring the knee along through careful treatment and mostly pain-free exercise.
"I have had excellent care from Jake, who visited me at home every week since the knee replacement surgery on October 12. He knew exactly how to bring the knee along through careful treatment and mostly pain-free exercise. Overall, I am very satisfied with Luna."
- Darry, Luna user
8) "Luna has been a godsend not having to worry about how I would get to physical therapy."
"Luna has been a godsend not having to worry about how I would get to physical therapy. My therapist, Brandon, has been wonderful. He is patient, yet pushes me to stretch and exercise my new hip. I increased my visits from two per week to three so I can keep on track with my progress."
