Dr. Tyson Matsumoto

Tyson is passionate about helping others learn about their bodies through movement. When we move better, we feel better, we have more energy, and we think better. The positive ripple effects of better movement can extend across all areas of our lives.


Tyson’s approach to physical therapy is constantly evolving. He blends concepts from Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, the Postural Restoration Institute, Movement Links, and others with the latest research on exercise science and physiology.


He believes strongly that, “Methods are many, but principles are few.” He is continually striving to deepen his understanding of the principles that underpin human movement so he can better select and tailor the specific methods for each client. He looks at the interactions between different body regions and treats the body as a whole entity, rather than as separate parts.


His ultimate goal is not just to help clients move better, but to help them develop greater physical capacity, a deeper connection with their own body, and to crush their personal goals along the way.


When Tyson is not working on his craft, you might find him sipping coffee in a quiet cafe reading books on mindfulness, experimenting with his own workouts, or hiking Bay Area trails with his wife.
