About Us

History of Nexus Studio

nex·us – a connection or series of connections linking two or more things.

Nexus Studio was established in 2011 in Carmel, CA, by Dr. Hiromi Ozawa, DPT. From the beginning, her vision for Nexus has been to introduce and practice a new approach and method of physical rehabilitation on the Monterey Peninsula.

This new concept derived from Dr. Ozawa’s years of physical therapy experience and her realization that there was a need for a more personalized, comprehensive approach to physical therapy. In addition, she also saw Pilates movement therapy as the most effective method for teaching proper movement patterns that can be customized to each person’s individual needs.

As the definition of the word implies, Dr. Ozawa utilized the term Nexus as a representation of the bridge she creates for clients:

From their onset experience with pain and discomfort to one of wellness and healthy movement

From the need for physical therapy and pain / discomfort reduction to shifting more towards movement therapy through Pilates

This duality, of seemingly opposite or contrary forces, actually working together to create a more holistic, empowering, and beneficial result has helped Nexus’ clients recover with a great success rate from musculoskeletal injuries, surgeries, movement problems, and even improve sports performance drastically.

Salutem Bio Performance

In 2020, Dr. Ozawa also launched an emerging health and wellness system called Salutem Bio-Performance in the Monterey, CA area. This 360-degree approach to health and wellness is designed to help patients solve their health problems, minimize the impacts of aging, and improve their overall quality of life by healing from the inside out.


Salutem offers a comprehensive approach to precision medicine that covers systemic, structural, and movement conditions that aim to improve a patient’s overall well-being and tailor disease prevention and treatment that takes differences in people’s genes, environments, and lifestyles into consideration.

Our Mission

At Nexus, our mission is simple: Empower clients to be as healthy as possible by helping them make positive, lasting changes in their physical and psychological states during the natural process of aging.
