Dr. Maia founded Trilogy Chiropractic to pursue her mission of teaching people about the human body and all its wonders. She sees Chiropractic as not just being about proper alignment of the spine, but a lifestyle choice where proper communication between the brain and body, structural correction, and healthy muscles replace frivolous drug prescriptions, and expensive, invasive surgeries. She is one of only 1200 Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractors in the world, and has completed extensive training and post-graduate work in fields such as pediatrics and pre and post natal care, neurology and physiology, family wellness care, and successfully treats various chronic pain disorders. Dr. Maia believes in treating the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. She grew up in New Orleans, where she developed her passion for music, art and Cajun cooking. She completed her undergraduate studies in Atlanta, Georgia and her Doctorate in Chiropractic at Life Chiropractic College West in 2008. She then set out to Seattle to fulfill her childhood dream of living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Dr. Maia has a very sweet dog named Eve. Eve is a Shiba Inu, who can often be found hanging out with her in the clinic. Eve is wonderful with people and kids. Many patients try to schedule their appointments on the same days that Eve is in the office because they love visiting with her so much and she is always happy to see them. If you are allergic to dogs or would prefer that she not be at the office during your appointment time, please let us know, as our number one goal is your comfort during your visit.
