Acclaimed physical therapist, yogi, and beloved teacher, Harvey Deutch, P.T. has been merging the art and science of yoga and physical therapy for over 34 years, exploring and perfecting the the nuances of each. After graduating from the Physical Therapy program at the University of Vermont, he moved to California and practiced for six years in Los Angeles, before moving north to San Francisco in 1987. Following 6 years serving as the Director of a sports medicine center, Harvey opened the doors to his own private practice, Red Hawk Physical Therapy, in 1994. The clinic offers the highest quality physical therapy care, catering to everyone from seasoned athletes to clients with varied orthopedic problems, post operative and mechanical joint problems. Harvey and his staff believe that through a thorough evaluation and diagnosis, followed by manual therapy, patient education and exercise instruction, people are able to return to their highest level of function. Every client is evaluated on an individual basis and a personalized treatment program and exercise regime is prescribed.
Ever evolving his therapeutic offerings, in recent years Harvey has manifested his dream of mixing his physical therapy talents, his yoga intuitions, and his love of teaching eager students. His laser-sharp precision and keen eye for working with the physical form join his innate ability to understand and finesse the energetic body. Along with his signature humor, Harvey is well-known for taking two-dimensional anatomy information off the page and delivering it in an approachable and understandable format. When not in his clinic offering his sought-after manual orthopedic skills, Harvey can be found giving lectures and leading sell-out workshops, retreats, and teacher trainings at local health clubs, at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, at Yoga Tree SF, and in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. You might also spot him cycling the hills of San Francisco, running with his spirited dogs out at the beach, at the ballpark with his son Zacariah, and of course, on his yoga mat.
