Who Are We?

First of all, I, Shauna Burchett, the owner, am a no-drama mama and want you if you are too (men included). I opened Synergy in 2002 and have kept it afloat through some crazy ups and downs in the economy and the healthcare field. The business is stable and thriving and we needs additional staff to meet the growing patient demand.

At this location, we have two part-time physical therapists, two full-time occupational therapists (including the owner), two part-time physical therapy assistants, three admin personnel, and a biller. We are located in a 2,200 square foot building.

Your room will have a high-low table, desk and computer. We have a very small gym with bike and plinth, exercises balls, and weights.

We also have a pediatric practice in Coeur d’Alene – see We have six occupational therapists and two speech therapists there.

We have an integrated approach to care. By that, I mean we use a wide variety of modalities, and share care of patients between different therapists to get their needs met. Between us, we do Strain Counterstrain, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Myofascial Release, Lymphatic Drainage, Feldenkrais, and more. We have a small yoga studio and very gentle classes geared to people recovering from illness and injury. We have recently started using Frequency Specific Microcurrent with great results.

We are not attached to what you do as long as you do it really well and really want to become exceptional.

I won’t demand that you push clients through care quickly, and Synergy is not a mill, but I expect that you will want to deliver excellent care. We typically treat each patient for a full hour, insurance permitting. Our biller and front desk staff are fantastic, and keep the therapists informed of what the various insurances allow, so that both the patient and the therapist know what to expect. I run a straight, ethical practice and I don’t blur the edges.


We offer medical for individuals working 32 hours, and an IRA with a 100% match up to 3% of your wage. You get 7 holidays plus your birthday, accrual of 10 days PTO for the first 2 years eligible to take after the first 6 months of work.

I (Shauna) teach osteopathic soft tissue principles and craniosacral therapy classes to therapists in Spokane. These are free for staff. I also teach lymph drainage classes for the general public, so patients will have a safe, effective means of taking care of themselves at home.

“I have worked for Synergy just under 2 years and it is by far the BEST clinic I have ever worked for. In hindsight, I wish I would have started my PT career here right out of grad school, but I was not so fortunate. Nonetheless, working at other clinics gave me a greater appreciation for my role at Synergy. What makes it such a great place to work you might ask? I have ten reasons (in no particular order) that easily come to mind…”
