Dr. Mary Ellen Kramp (she/her) graduated from Springfield College in 1992 with a Master of Science degree in physical therapy and received her doctorate from Boston University in 2005. She is a certified lymphedema therapist and has been working in women’s health for almost 20 years treating bladder, bowel, and sexual dysfunction. Although she loves treating absolutely everything in the body from head to toe, she has a passion for fertility, prenatal, and postpartum care with particular focus on making sure that both parent and baby are doing well in the first few weeks after delivery. Mary Ellen considers herself a manual therapy snob and has fine-tuned a plethora of hands-on skills over the past 30+ years of practice.

Education is another passion. Mary Ellen teaches across the country and has developed her own continuing education courses to teach Lymph Drainage and Vascular Release for the Pelvic PT, Lymph & Vascular Techniques for the Ortho Therapist, The Infertility Protocol, Pelvic PT Primer, and Breast, Baby & The Difficult Latch.  She has also co-founded The Nourish Project to create professional and community education from a multidisciplinary standpoint for the treatment of breast/bottle feeding infant issues and mastitis. In 2014, she became the president and co-founder of Pelvic Health Research Initiative, a non-profit organization established to raise money to fund pelvic research.

On top of treating numerous diagnoses and creating educational programs, she also has an interest in research. She published a case series report in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association on manual therapy techniques for the treatment of infertility, and a randomized, controlled pilot study on this topic has recently closed. She has also published in Rehabilitation Oncology.

She relocated to the DC area from Florida in 2024 with her husband, dogs, and cat.
