Tony found his passion for physical therapy following the end of his Marine Corps career as he wanted to continue his public service with a focus into the healing arts, and after being introduced to Massage Therapy through his mother, his wife noticed his excitement when working with more acutely injured patients. He received his B.S. in Kinesiology at Notre Dame de Namur University, and his Doctorate of Physical Therapy at The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences. Since his graduation, he has been working with a wide variety of orthopedic injuries with a focus on integrating his massage therapy and physical therapy skills as a Manual Therapist, and has been building his expertise in myofascial decompression and pelvic health therapy. He wants to develop his skills in order to finish his Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner Certification (PRPC) requirements, and earn his Manual Therapy Certification (MTC), his Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and Orthopedic Specialist Certification (OCS) to better integrate a more holistic and in-depth approach to healing, and better educate his clients within all stages of athleticism from dormant to professional status to prevent reinjury. When he is not refining his skills or running clinics, he likes to partake in deep conversations, venture to the beach, watch indie films, play video games, and visit microbreweries/local eateries with his wife.

Kenneth Banting, DPT
Physical Therapist

Ken completed his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology and Doctor of Physical Therapy with Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI in 2018. In his collegiate years, he presented and published studies in applied sciences with breast cancer survivors, and persons with Multiple Sclerosis. He participates in and has led numerous volunteer groups focused on service with adaptive athletes, underserved communities and persons with disabilities. Since graduating, he has served as an outpatient physical therapy provider in South Bay for the diverse community of Silicon Valley.

Beyond his professional achievements and clinical experience, he is proud that his approach with physical therapy has a lot of heart. He believes that the opportunity to render PT as a service is dependent on a single factor best worded by Teddy Roosevelt: “No one cares how much I know, until they know how much I care.” Ken believes that the fastest way to recovery is through (pro)active participation in one’s health. He has a pragmatic evidence-based approach with his individualized rehabilitation programs. His professional interests are in sports-related injuries, muscle strain recovery, chronic pain, and post-operative cases. Ken was born in the Philippines and raised in Illinois. He is trilingual in Tagalog, English, and professional Spanish. In his free time, you can catch him surfing in Santa Cruz, hiking coastal trails, learning new languages, and cooking.

Celeste Kim, PT, DPT
Physical Therapist

Celeste is a physical therapist with a passion for empowering her patients through movement. She received her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Chapman University, and has a wide range of experience working with orthopedic, pelvic health, geriatric, and neurological conditions. While she enjoys working with general orthopedic conditions, she also has a strong interest in treating vestibular disorders. She is certified in vestibular and concussion management, and her mission is to provide rehabilitative services to this underserved and frequently mismanaged population. She also recognizes that pain is complex and should be treated as such, so her sessions involve addressing musculoskeletal impairments in addition to identifying lifestyle/behavioral components that may be contributing to your condition. She enjoys challenging her patients and feels the most accomplished as a PT when her patients say “I didn’t think I could do that!” When she is not hard at work, she enjoys practicing yoga, lifting weights, bouldering, snuggling her dogs, and watching live music!
