Dr. Sepi Aeen, MPT, DPT

Dr. Sepi Aeen holds a Doctorate Degree from the University of Montana. Sepi is also a graduate of California State University Northridge (CSUN). She holds two Bachelor degrees in Health Education and Physical Therapy and a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy. She is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and is licensed in the State of California since 1997.

Sepi has worked in the field of Physical therapy since 1989. She has practiced in several outpatient, orthopedic and hospital settings. She opened her own private outpatient practice in September 1999 in order to provide her patients with the high quality, individualized treatment that they deserve. It didn’t take long for Sepi to realize there was limited improvement with her patients using conventional physical therapy. She attended many continuing education courses and seminars in order to improve her ability to help her patients. It wasn’t until she discovered John Barnes’ Myofascial Release (MFR) Approach® in 2001 that she found her passion and purpose in life. Since then she has completed over 1,000 hours of MFR seminars nationwide, and as of 2018 Sepi is one of the very few selected instructors facilitating and teaching John F. Barnes’ seminars. Sepi continues to attend MFR seminars as well as educate her patients and therapists on the benefits of MFR. Physicians affiliated with Cedars Sinai, USC and Providence Tarzana Hospitals have asked Sepi to speak on the benefits of Myofascial Release.

Over the next eight years, she envisioned a peaceful and serene healing center for her patients. After a long search, she found her desired location. The residential space is a shining gem in the midst of a stressful, fast-paced and busy city in Los Angeles.

In March of 2011, twelve years after opening her first practice, Sepi realized her long term dream of opening an MFR healing center. Sepi became the founder and president of From the Heart Physical Therapy, Inc., the only Myofascial Release Treatment Center in Los Angeles County.

From The Heart Physical Therapy is an authentic and positively energized place of healing where everyone is treated with love and respect. Sepi and her team are dedicated to helping each patient return to a balanced and healthy life they deserve.
