Jacob was very helpful and easy to work with. He helped me understand how the way I was breathing was contributing to my anxiety, causing me to have shortness of breath, and making me feel congested. He gave me some easy exercises to do to improve my breathing habits, and even after doing them for just a week or two, I was already able to see improvements! I started feeling less congested, better able to take full breaths, and my anxiety was getting better too. I had always thought that my anxiety was causing my shortness of breath, but he explained how my shortness of breath was actually what was causing much of my anxiety, which is why these exercises helped. He also answered any questions I had along the way and explained and demonstrated everything well, so I made sure I was doing the exercises properly to get the most out of them. I’m grateful for Jacob’s help and the improvements I’m already seeing, and I look forward to continuing with what I’ve learned to keep improving even more.


I have been working with Jacob on breathing retraining. I have noticed my performance during football practices has been better and I am able to get through workouts without as much shortness of breath. I also feel like I can control my body and my emotions better which is giving me an edge that not many people have on the field.


Working with Jacob on breath work and body awareness has been very helpful. I struggle with anxiety so learning about how to control my body’s stress responses has been an enormous help. I would strongly recommend making an appointment at Core Physical Therapy if you are looking for a way to improve overall mental health.


I have been working with Jacob for about 6 months. I began the program to help with fatigue and sleep schedule. Since starting, I have seen improvements in my energy level and overall mental health. I have primarily been focusing on breathing, nutrition, and mobility. I have also seen improvements in the duration of my workouts, and sleep schedule.


I came to Core Physical Therapy after realizing I needed drastic help recovering from alcohol abuse and developmental difficulties.  Jacob Hardy and his services have been amazing.  He’s kind, gentle, and direct, and he listens very well.  He’s guided me towards a healthier place than I even knew I could achieve, that other schools of medicine like psychiatry would likely never have approached.  For every symptom I came in with, from breath difficulty and digestive problems to bodily tension/anxiety, he has quickly and clearly laid out a manageable strategy to help in a way that incorporates how it works alongside all the others.  I’m just amazed at the progress he’s enabled in just a few weeks, and it’s given me the courage and faith to see the whole process through to the very end.  Thank you from the core of my body, mind, heart and soul, Jacob and Core Physical Therapy.
