The Health In Motion, located in Malolos City, Bulacan, was established in November 2014 by Filipino physical therapists Ferdinand B. Fajardo and Jenina Joy F. De Gucena. By putting up a clinic that provides quality physical rehabilitation, they aspired to serve their fellow "bulakenyo".
The clinic offers two essential therapy systems. Physical therapy is a branch of rehabilitation medicine aimed at helping patients maintain, recover and improve physical abilities while Osteopathy is a system of treatment and diagnosis that integrates the human anatomy and physiology in order to rid the body off of body-related dysfunctions.
