Sha Chung Therapy was founded by Dr. Monika Budacova (PT, DPT, DTM, & LMT) to provide mobile physical therapy, massage therapy and wellness services to individuals and businesses in the Michiana area. We travel to you to offer our therapeutic services in the comfort of your home, business or gym.
Monika started her therapeutic journey as a young child by walking on her father’s back to relieve his pain after his intense hockey and soccer training. She herself was an athlete and competitive martial artist which taught her how to be connected and aware of her body. The passion for teaching and helping others prevent and heal injuries and enhance their potential as athletes became even more important to her after she ended her competitive career due to injury.
She became a Certified Personal trainer and Massage Therapist in 2003. A growing desire to deepen her knowledge of healing sciences led her to complete a degree in Physical therapy in 2008. She has been practicing and teaching physical therapy and massage ever since with a focus on Manual therapy, Orthopedics, Injury prevention and Chronic pain. Monika also completed a four year program in traditional Tibetan medicine, graduating as a Doctor of Tibetan Medicine in 2012. Her experience studying, practicing and teaching in different clinical and therapeutic settings in Europe, China and the United States gives her a unique, holistic and multifaceted perspective on treatment and prevention. She approaches every client as a unique individual with their own important personal and social history of illness and their own goals when evaluating and developing a treatment plan. She focuses on finding the sources of disbalance in the body, looking at the problem more holistically to aid in prevention, swift recovery and enhancement of both function and quality of life.
