Alicia Robinson "Do it yourself" is a phrase not often applied to physical therapy, but John Lemme aims to change that. Although Lemme's Newport Beach business, Therapy Solutions, has taken clients in person for six years, it is now branching out to offer its "anatomical therapy" to clients over the Internet. Lemme describes anatomical therapy as a "hands-off approach" that doesn't use heat, cold, massage or any of the techniques of traditional physical therapy.

They’re familiar sights in a number of houses: the stacks of paper that accumulate over years on the desk, the boxes full of yellowed magazines, the dusty old clothes packed at the back of the closet. Sometimes, they can be hard to throw out. And that’s where Lauren Stabler-Johnson comes in. Stabler-Johnson, who lives in Costa Mesa, launched a part-time business called Simplify and Organize last December to help people get rid of clutter. Half a dozen times a month, she visits homes, offices and even art studios with an objective eye for what can stay and what needs to go. On a good day, it’s an easy enough task, but as Stabler-Johnson has learned in the last few months, sentimentality can get in the way. “I’m almost like an organizational therapist,” said the Newport Beach native, who operates Simplify and Organize on the side while working part-time at Nils Skiwear.

At 66, the retired English teacher who volunteers his time with the Newport Beach Public Library’s literacy programs is still looking for someone to share his life with.

His parents had noticed the warning signs. The boy had trouble balancing and reading basic words. He often paced back and forth. He could recite facts about animals and sea creatures, but only at his own prompting. When asked questions, he could rarely articulate an answer. This year, James and Lisa Eddy discovered the truth: Their son Lex, a third-grader at Paularino Elementary School, was diagnosed as autistic. As a result, he would need to be in a classroom better suited to his needs.

I will get this fact out of the way at the beginning: My wife is a physical therapist, and she owns and manages her own physical therapy practice in the City of Orange. So maybe I have a bias. Having said that, I want to call your attention to a change that should be made that will reduce the costs of effective health care and increase the general fairness of the health-care system. What is that change? Allow “direct access” for physical therapy in California. What does that mean?

A Darfur refugee. An earthquake victim in China. A therapist who listens to one tale of suffering after another and feels powerless to help. According to Barbara English, they may all need the same treatment. The Newport Beach psychotherapist, who has run a private practice since 1997, founded the nonprofit Living Ubuntu three years ago to help people suffering from trauma. While the nonprofit serves anyone who comes to the door, many of English’s clients are people like herself — therapists, doctors and nonprofit workers — who need relief from trying to solve others’ problems.

Physical therapist Kirsten Sverdrup Robinson moved to America in 1983 because she was curious about its medical system. When she opened her own practice in April 2007, she brought a little bit of Norway with her. At the Newport Beach office of Stand Tall, Robinson treats patients with the Redcord Sling Exercise Therapy system, a machine that was developed in her home country. Robinson is the first physical therapist in America certified to use the Redcord, which uses one or more slings and elastic cords to strengthen muscles and enhance passive range of motion in patients where pain is making it difficult for them to move.

A physical therapist attached wires to his arms and shoulders, sending electrical currents designed to stimulate and strengthen his weakened muscles. Daily stimulation and exercise has strengthened his left tricep muscles, so Oka puts up with discomfort and tries to avoid negative thoughts. “I was really outgoing and always an active person, and I was even a lot worse when I first got here,” he said. “I want to get better, and I try when I go out there every day.

ORANGE — Helena Rouhe gave her students an unusual crash course Saturday in how to deal with a drug-addicted family member. The therapist, who works with the New Directions for Women clinic in Costa Mesa, set up a makeshift obstacle course around the track at the Riding Academy of Orange County, scattering a bucket full of water and two buckets full of food. Finally, she led a horse onto the grounds and tied three ropes to its halter, handing each end to a participant.
