About Us


Dr. Shyla Mesch, DPT

Dr. Mesch received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of New Mexico in 2013. She practiced at a large local Albuquerque clinic for 7 years before starting her own practice so that she could spend quality time with each patient, listen to their needs, and take a whole-body approach to their care.

Dr. Mesch is also the only practitioner in Albuquerque certified in Muscle Activation Techniques®.

Dr. Erika Telfer, DPT

Dr. Telfer is a Doctor of Physical Therapy with over 10 years of experience. She graduated with her Doctorate from the University of South Florida in 2013. She has practiced primarily in the outpatient orthopedic setting, and has experience with dry needling and has taken a special interest in women's health. Her interest in physical therapy stems largely from being a competitive runner throughout the majority of her life and seeing the difference physical therapy makes in enabling people to continue to do what they love.

Dr. Telfer is a military spouse and loves getting to learn about the areas where she lives and the local culture through time spent with her patients. She has practiced in Florida, Hawaii, and Japan.

Dr. Telfer is passionate about helping people improve their quality of life through physical therapy. She is a skilled clinician and a caring advocate for her patients. She is dedicated to providing her patients with the best possible care and helping them reach their full potential.


Melody May, PTA

Melody has been a physical therapist assistant since August of 2020. She learned the value of physical therapy and the importance of injury prevention early on after experiencing injury as a teenager in competitive sports. Because of her personal experience with injury, she is passionate about helping patients with current impairments and providing education for prevention and avoiding injury recurrence.
