We offer a wide array of services aimed at enhancing your well being.

Dry Needling


Dry needling is a therapeutic treatment using a fine filament needle to restore normal length and function of muscle and eliminate pain. Dry needling is mainly used to treat myofascial trigger points, but it is also used to target connective tissue, and neural ailments.

Core Retraining


Many of us are unaware of how to properly engage our deep core. This can lead to back or pelvic pain, chronic neck and upper back tightness, dysfunctional breathing and even incontinence. Learning how to breathe well and engage your deep core is a game changer!

Manual Therapy


Manual physical therapy is a clinical approach utilizing specific hands-on techniques to restore mobility to stiff joints and reduce muscle tension in order to return the patient to more natural movement without pain.

    Through Maria’s articulate guidance on breath control I’ve been able to have greater awareness of my pelvic floor and how to engage it. It has also helped to release my diaphragm allowing me deeper and more controlled yet relaxed breathing. Thank you Maria for your care and skill!

    Before working with Maria, I was unaware of my breathing pattern. This was the key piece needed to engage my core and pelvic floor. With practice this has become natural and easy.

    After completing one week of breathing exercises with Maria, I felt so many positive changes in my body! As awareness of my breath grew I felt the connection to my core and how it changed the function of my body. This inspired me to continue with a breathing practice that decreased pain in my body. The nagging pain in my back that flared up when I was stressed disappeared. I highly recommend taking a deep dive into breath work with Maria. Not only is it an amazing tool but something that you always have access to.


    I really appreciate your videos, and rewatch them over and over. They have taught me how to breathe with my diaphragm. Your explanation on proper posture and the position of my diaphragm was excellent. I look forward to continuing this process.
