About

WHAT WE'RE ABOUT

Our current healthcare system is focused on being reactive.

At Balance in Motion, we take a proactive approach to empowering aging adults and seniors. 

 

We equip them with the tools they need to ensure independence and quality of life. We also believe that therapy should be available as continued service for aging adults to assist in gaining and maintaining their strength, endurance, and balance.

We identify the specific needs of our clients and create programs that promote wellness and assist with the prevention of falls and injuries.

 

Our goal is to make sure our aging adults can maintain their independence and have the option to age in the place of their choice.

 

“A doctor may save your life, but an occupational therapist helps you live it.”

Ami Alford
Owner, OTP, COTA/L

"I am passionate about helping the aging adult maintain their independence for as long as possible."

Ami has worked as an Occupational Therapy Practitioner for 8 years in an inpatient skilled-nursing facility.

 

She has had the opportunity to work at multiple locations throughout Greater Cincinnati.

 

This allowed her to identify 2 key areas of much-needed improvement in the therapy care for aging adults; preventative and extended therapy services. 

This was her motivation to start Balance in Motion.

 

Ami wants to help people maintain their independence at home and in the community, improve their quality of life, and keep them out of nursing facilities.

 

She uses her fun, positive attitude, and tireless energy to encourage her clients to work hard and reach their goals.

 

Ami is blessed with her supportive husband and fur baby. In her spare time, she enjoy playing sand volleyball, gardening, hiking, and traveling.

Ami was my therapist after my surgery she helped me so much. She pushed me when I needed pushing. She cheered me on to keep trying and praised me whenever I learned to do something new. She is the reason I got to go home after 6 months which I what I wanted. She is awesome!!

I have experienced problems with balance for the last few years. I have tried different approaches to improve my balance but nothing has helped much. However, since I've been going to Balance in Motion I am seeing improvement. Ami is doing a great job which I appreciate very much.

I realized in the last year I had loss muscle. I knew more exercise would be the main part of the answer. I did not like the thought of going to a fitness gym and wear myself out on various machines and then after all the time and work being disappointed in the results. I happen to find "Balance in Motion" opening up near me with Amy the therapist. After three sessions with her and a little homework, my results are better than expected, even my balance has improved. All because of the professional therapy by someone that recognizes what is needed and how to accomplish it. She specializes in therapy for seniors even as old as 92.

I recently started coming to Balance in Motion. I just wanted to let everyone know how enjoyable and how friendly it is there. But more importantly, it has been a tremendous help in every part of my body. I feel stronger so much healthier.
