Meet the Doc
Physiotherapist and Postpartum Doula
Dr. JaAsha Pena, PT, DPT is the owner and founder of Ambient Physiotherapy & Wellness. She received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Georgia and Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University.
After graduating, Dr. Ja worked at a reputable outpatient facility in Tucson, Arizona where she received mentorship and education in treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction as well as orthopedic conditions such as back pain, hip pain, headaches and more. Her passion for pelvic health and women's health led Dr. Ja to complete an American Board of Physical Therapy Residency & Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE) Women’s Health Residency through the Brooks Institute of Higher Learning and postpartum doula training through the National Black Doula's Association.
Dr. Ja understands the value and importance of access to high quality pre- and postnatal care and seeks to make her services accessible to all birthing people. She works to support postpartum clients so that they can thrive in the fourth trimester and beyond.
Though the pregnant and postpartum populations are close to her heart, Dr. Ja works with individuals from ages 5 and up to address neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction to improve their quality of life.
"My therapist JaAsha was excellent. She was very professional, knowledgable, friendly and caring. I highly recommend!"
"JaAsha is incredible and knowledgable. I enjoyed working with her to resolve my issues. She was patient professional and had a great sense of humor, which is something I appreciate..."
Dr. Peña is incredibly knowledgable and always made me feel respected and listened to. She explained everything to me and never pushed me beyond what was comfortable. She encourages listening to your body cues about pain and I never felt I shouldn't tell her if something was off.
