Where you can recover from injury, improve your stamina and strength, or optimize performance

MAG Physical Therapy, Pilates & Wellness is here to help you feel your best

Our Westfield, NJ physical therapy practice specializes in injury prevention, mindful movement, and a return to real wellness. Whether you’re a new mom, an injured athlete, or someone who wants to move with more confidence and less pain, we are here to help.

How we can help you feel your best

Physical therapy and our other wellness services aren’t just about recovering from injury or as follow-up care after surgery. Physical therapy, Pilates, and manual therapy services can help you prevent injury, find joy in movement, and reach your physical goals.

Rather than give you a prescriptive care plan and send you home, we work with you one-on-one, taking a holistic approach to your body, its needs, and your goals. You spend your full session with a Doctor of Physical Therapy who is invested in helping you feel your best!

At MAG PT, we combine physical therapy and hands-on therapeutic interventions (like stretching, massage/soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilizations, muscle energy techniques) with support for body mechanics, posture, and strength and conditioning.

When we combine physical therapy and manual therapy like this, we see quick results for our clients — and we know you can see results, too!

We also offer other treatment methods, like Pilates, dry needling, fitness assessments, and more to make sure you have the plan of care that best fits your needs and goals.

We offer a range of services, based on where you’re at in your life. Please click below to find the MAG Physical Therapy and Wellness service that fits your needs and you’ll be directed to learn more! You can also book a consultation here if you’re not sure what you need!

guide to wellness

Dr. Melissa Maglaque is a Doctor of Physical Therapy who is passionate about injury prevention and overall wellness through the use of mindful movement.

Dr. Maglaque graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy and BS in Exercise Science from Rutgers University. She is a certified Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT), Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS), and Pilates Instructor.

She founded MAG Physical Therapy, Pilates & Wellness in 2018 because she wanted to provide quality one-on-one time with her clients and assist them in finding the root cause of their pain and limitations.

As a dual-licensed Physical Therapist and Pilates instructor in the states of New Jersey and California, Melissa utilizes a specialized skill set to uniquely address each of her client’s problems and create a customized plan of care to successfully get them back to doing the things they love.

Dr. Maglaque grew up as an athlete and recovered from knee surgery at a young age, which immediately sparked her interest in physical therapy and began her career in injury rehabilitation and prevention.

She has 14+ years of experience treating a diverse population of clients, ranging from those who’ve undergone surgery or are recovering from injury to elite and Olympic-level athletes.

Before moving to Westfield, New Jersey, Melissa lived in San Francisco for 8 years, where she found Pilates to be the perfect complement to musculoskeletal healing and recovery.

By blending physical therapy, functional exercise, and Pilates-based principles, she ensures that her clients reach their goals with safe and manageable plans. Melissa enjoys continually learning new treatment methods and incorporating evidence-based interventions into her practice, allowing her to help clients achieve optimal health and wellness.

Clients often seek treatment from Melissa when they have failed to improve with more traditional approaches.

"When I’m not helping my patients feel their best, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 boys, cycling, hiking and practicing Pilates!"
