Proudly serving Arlington since 1990, but relocated to Alexandria in mid March 2024

Hand-N-Hand Therapy was founded in 1990 by Dr. Diane T. Stroud PT, DPT, Advanced Certified Rolfer® and Dr. Pamela A. Wood PT, DPT during an evening chat at Bob & Edith's diner in Arlington Virginia. Having met through their home health experience with the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA), both brought unique skills to the field. Diane having a strong passion for the mind/body connection and Pam with her mechanical savviness truly embraced the art of physical therapy. Together these sage practitioners joined forces to create one of the longest standing woman owned physical therapy clinics in Virginia. 


Over their many years in physical therapy and Rolfing®, they have appreciated the body’s balanced structure, complete with efficient and fluid movement patterns. They have also witnessed the devastation when this balance is disrupted by physical or life stresses.  A "dis-ease" of function oftentimes develops, ultimately manifesting as annoying or incapacitating symptoms.  As seasoned manual therapists they strive to identify these imbalances and provide the necessary reeducation to enable the body to reclaim a greater state of health, comfort and balance.

After 34 years in private practice together, Diane and Pam downsized Hand N Hand Therapy clinic in mid March 2024 and relocated to Pinecrest Office Park in Alexandria Virginia.  Our colleague Donna Olivero, PT, PRC will continue onward in her own small private practice, sharing space with HNH.  Susan Barr-Hunter, PT,DPT, GCS will be taking a leave of absence into Summer '24 and will decide her workplace arrangement at that time.  Michelle Kondracki, PT, CLT will be sharing our space beginning mid June 2024 and handling lymphatic and lymphedema cases.


We do have a list of wonderful providers as we all will be working at a more reduced schedule.  Send an email to our office or make a phone request at 703-527-8446 for this provider listing.
