Charlotte Walters

Charlotte Walters is founder and owner of Mountain Wellness & Physical Therapy.  She offers extensive knowledge as a physical therapist in correcting joint mechanics, insightful and specific therapeutic exercise plans, and continuity of care throughout the healing process.  Charlotte is certified in various specializations such as ASTYM and joint mobilizations techniques.  She also holds a certification in functional nutrition for chronic pain and integrates physical therapy and nutrition, helping her clients heal faster, stay pain-free and return to the activities they love.  

Her journey to physical therapy started as a patient herself after an injury on the athletic field.  After feeling the shock of not being able to run or bike following injury, Charlotte fell in love with the idea of helping people get back to an active lifestyle.  Being able to return to trail running, hiking, or walking the dog, is not just for physical health, but is one of the key components to mental wellbeing.   

In her free time, Charlotte enjoys her home in the mountains of WNC.  She can be found running around town, on a ride on the Blue Ridge or hanging out with her family at the local brewery.

Our Story

Mountain Wellness was born out of frustration with the current healthcare model, and a desire to give patients the time and attention they deserve. Giving patients 30 minutes for 8 visits just wasn’t working for both client and clinician. This model was mentally taxing as it took time and energy away from serving each patient as an individual. It also was the making of a burnt- out physical therapist. Something needed to change, and Mountain Wellness was the answer. We started serving patients at a higher level and found we had the quality time needed for both personal mental and physical health.

Mountain Wellness bridged the gap between healing from physical injury, to changing a lifestyle that includes optimal personal health to live life to the fullest. Our clinic also moved to a concierge, mobile practice model providing not only physical rehabilitation through movement and nutrition, but also meeting our clients on an intellectual, mental, and spiritual level.
