Dr. Avila fixed me when I was so injured I could barely train normally. She helped me and gave me all the tools to get better. She really understands your needs and she’s incredibly knowledgeable! Can’t recommend her enough!

I felt welcome and cared for. Dr. Avila’s calm presence and technique put me at ease, and my body feels so much better. I had felt stagnant and sluggish in my body, and now I feel alive and have energy again. Thank you, Dr. Avila! I look forward to booking my next appointment.

Dr. Marcy is amazing. When I first started working with her I had limited mobility in my right hip, she quickly assessed the root cause and after a few months of seeing her and following the exercise plan she prescribed I was back to full range of motion. Now, over a year later my hip feels normal and I’m able to go to workout without pain. Dr. Marcy is knowledgeable, friendly and great at what she does. I genuinely look forward to my appointments and always leave her office feeling fantastic.

I had my first visit with Marcy yesterday and I left feeling so much better! The thorough assessment gave me some insight into what was happening structurally with my hips and spine and provided insight as to why I was straining my lower back. Treatment was therapeutic and relaxing. She worked on loosening the muscles that were over compensating and provided me with exercises to strengthen and activate the muscles that were underperforming. Marcy is extremely knowledgable and a true professional. I will definitely be back. Thank you Marcy!

Dr Marcy is a absolutely phenomenal. After enduring months of pain from my biceps tendonitis injury, Marcy did the magic for me. I had been to two other Physical Therapists and nothing seemed to fix my pain. Marcy worked on my injury for 3 weeks and I am almost back to normal. I cannot thank her enough and highly recommend her. Thank you Marcy

I have been going to Marcy regularly for massages for 6 months to deal with chronic pain. I can't recommend her highly enough! She is highly skilled and a magician at recognizing issues with my body and fixing them--I walk out every time feeling the best I've felt in a long time. She's also incredibly kind and easy to talk with.

Dr. Marcy is wonderful! I had never been to a chiropractor before so I was a little nervous, but Dr. Marcy made me feel very comfortable and answered all of my questions. She greatly helped my neck and shoulder pain and taught me helpful exercises/stretches to do at home. I highly recommend her for any sort of pain!

I love coming here and I love Dr. Marcy. I called her when I had majorly pulled my back from lifting and she was so accommodating. She has a holistic and gentle approach to healing: instead of focusing on one area of pain she focuses on also alleviating the cause of the pain. When I came in I didn't even realize how much of my body that I neglected and she was able to figure out and adjust so many things in one session, I felt so light and at ease. I definitely feel like she does everything she can to help anyone who walks into her office feel better. After our first session she equipped me with so many resources so I could do maintenance and my back and shoulder pain has gotten much more manageable. I love coming in to get tuned up and adjusted because I trust that after each session I'll leave feeling good. They do deep tissue work and massage which is something I never experienced before when getting chiropractic adjustments, and it makes so much of a difference when the pain and stiffness in the muscles are also acknowledged during visits.Highly recommend anyone who is curious about chiropractic/massage to go here.

Dr. Marcy is very knowledgeable and provides great corrective exercises for you to do at home. In our sessions we begin with adjustments and then deep tissue work. Very necessary if you spend all day at a desk! I would highly recommend her practice to anyone with neck and back stiffness/pain!

Marcy is the most caring, compassionate provider out there. She shows a tremendous amount of expertise with her various methods of care. All care is incredibly personalized and she really goes above and beyond. She has helped me through aches and pains and a full ACL tear, providing so much relief and incredible conversation. I trust her entirely and cannot recommend her enough!

I'm grateful I found Dr. Avila! She has provided me with relief from chronic pain in my shoulder blade, my primary concern. And I'm less tight in my lower back and neck than I've been in years. I continue to see her for occasional troubleshooting and maintenance. Dr. Avila's fascial release technique is a game changer. Her space is impeccably clean and relaxing. Most importantly, she listens well and thoughtfully approaches each visit accordingly. I leave feeling better every time.

Dr. Avila is so kind and professional. She provided me weekly manual lymphatic drainage massages to help me recover from a recent surgery for several months. I truly felt heard as a client and Dr. Avila was also very honest with my progress(e.g decrease in swelling and inflammation). With her intuitive touch and openness to client feedback I was able to physically feel and see a difference! I love that Dr. Avila uses just her hands during a “lymphatic drainage massage” and does NOT rely on a machine to do the work. Prior to meeting Dr. Avila, I had received massages from another provider who just moved a hand piece back and fourth, without providing me an actual massage. I saw the quickest results and progress with Dr. Avila!

Dr. Marcy is an incredibly intuitive and knowledgeable professional. Since I started seeing her regularly over a year ago, my training stamina has significantly increased, I experience less/no pain for greater stretches of time, and my ability to manage stress and tune into my body has drastically improved. Dr. Marcy works hard to cultivate her craft and I whole heartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking to manage acute or chronic pain, and also improve their quality of life.

Marcy is incredibly knowledgable and warm. She goes above and beyond to personalize the care she offers, even using additional time to make recommendations for useful tools that may support healing outside of her office. This is a sign of a truly caring provider that has seriously positive intentions to help her clients feel their best. Very grateful for Marcy and my regular visits with her!

I originally found Marcy because I needed post-operative lymphatic drainage massages. However, since then, I’ve found I need her services for much more! She is incredible! So knowledgeable and gentle. She’s given me the tools to heal my body on my own. I am hyper-mobile and I suffered an ankle sprain many years ago that has affected other parts of my body. She’s helped me get my strength and movement back. Can’t recommend her enough!
