Posted on September 15, 2015 by

We’re proud to announce the opening of our 6th clinic, Imagine PT Old Village, which started seeing patients on September 8th. As the city of Mount Pleasant has grown, the need for physical therapy has grown with it. Imagine aims to serve the whole city of Mount Pleasant, and we know you’ll find our newest location convenient.

 

Although the clinic location is new to Imagine, rest assured that our Clinic Manager, Dusty Tolley, is pretty old news. Dusty has been working at our Park West clinic since 2011 when he was a student. He’s a gifted PT, and Imagine never let him go, hiring him directly upon graduation. “Working at Imagine Physical Therapy has been such a blessing for me,” shares Dusty. “Now having the opportunity to open a new clinic is a dream come true. My promise is that we will provide exceptional care and develop lasting friendships with anyone that walks through our door. We’ll listen to your wellness goals and give you concrete steps on how to reach them, supporting you in any way possible.”

 

For more about Dusty, please visit our Staff Page here.

 

Imagine Old Village is located off of Coleman Boulevard at 1304-C Erckmann Drive. Heading toward Sullivans Island, turn right on Erckmann Drive between Taco Bell and Oriental Garden. We are the first left hand turn off that road into a brick building. Coming from Chuck Dawley, turn right onto Coleman Blvd. Pass Fonduely Yours and turn left between Oriental Garden and Taco Bell.

 

We sincerely appreciate any friends and family you can send our way. Thanks for being part of the Imagine family!

Good Eats and Treats: Easy Does It!

Posted on September 15, 2015 by

For most of us time is in short supply. We fill our days with exercise, work, kids, grandkids, friends, church activities, physical therapy appointments (a-hem 🙂 ) and many other things. Maybe you love to cook, maybe you don’t….but we all have one thing in common–we love to EAT GOOD FOOD. This month we chose two recipes that have two things in common–they’re simple and delicious…..so you can eat good food without spending much time in the kitchen! We hope you enjoy. (And, as always, please consider sending us YOUR favorite recipes to betterfaster@imaginept.com).

Around Town: Shrimp and Grits and Bulls Island

Posted on September 15, 2015 by

Need to get out of the traffic and craziness of our whirlwind world and breathe a bit? We’ve got the place for you! Or if you’d prefer to eat, drink and be merry, we have you covered there as well. This month we’re highlighting the Bulls Island Ferry along with the Second Annual Shrimp & Grits Chefs’ Competition. Not the ‘free-est’ of activities, but well worth your money.

 

Bulls Island Ferry

Boneyard6TB

 

 

If you have an appreciation for the outdoors and insane beauty of South Carolina, put a visit to Bulls Island on your Bucket List!

 

What? The Bulls Island Ferry offers trips and tours to Bulls Island. Bulls Island is the largest of four barrier islands found within the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. Bulls is a 5,000 acre island consisting of maritime forest, fresh and brackish water impoundments, sand dunes and white sandy beaches. It has a wide variety of animals, amphibians and reptiles, but is world renowned for it’s birds. Over 275 species have been recorded on the refuge, most being found on or near Bulls.

 

Where do we leave from? Garris Landing in Awendaw, SC

 

What do we do? Once on the island, you’ll be on your own to explore the 16 miles of trails and seven miles of sandy beach. A short walk from the ferry you will find bathroom facilities, picnic area, and storm shelter.  From there, you can decide to walk straight to the beach, meander down Turkey Walk Trail or head over to the freshwater impoundments of the island’s interior. There are plenty of opportunities to tour the island with a guide, and everyone who take the ferry receives a Naturalist-led Ecotour on the way to the island.

 

Don’t Miss Activities: Boneyard Beach is considered the most beautiful part of the island and is aptly named. This three-mile stretch of beach is the result of the surf moving sand away from this end of the island.  The hundreds of oaks, cedars and pines that are left behind are weathered by the salt and sun to create a skeletonized forest in the sand.

 

Cost: A guided tour while riding the ferry to the island is $40 for adults and $20 for age 12 and under; guided beach/island tours and other opportunities vary.

 

Other Island Opportunities: Sunrise tours, Lighthouse Tours, overnight stays at the Dominick House, kayak to Bulls Island (guided)…and other seasonal opportunities. Please visit www.bullsislandferry.com.
