Testimonials for Dr. Linda Drake, Chiropractor

Testimonials for
Dr. Linda Drake, Chiropractor

Three nights and almost no sleep. Headache and a strange pain that started in my jaw and spread all over the neck and inside my ears. Even hard to describe. During a business trip Dr. Linda Drake was doing here in Playa Del Carmen, at some point I was hard to hide and I shared my discomfort with her. Dr. Drake kindly offered me a quick treatment to help me. In less than an hour session, she was able to release all the stress I was feeling and worked in other points in my back that I could ever thought could be related to my pain. The relief was immediate! At this same night I could sleep well again and no sign of the pain I had in the past week. I’m incredibly grateful and impressed with her technique, knowledge and more important how relax she was able to make me feel during and after the session. Thank so much Dr. Drake. You are really amazing.

While Bill and I were on holiday in Playa del Carmen, we met Zdenek and his wife Dagmar from Boston. It was apparent right away that something catastrophic had happened to him as he was limping, had many scars on his legs and could not straighten his right knee. I asked him what had happened and he told me that he had fallen off a roof 3 stories to the ground, fractured his leg and pelvis in several places and was in very serious condition. This happened over 5 years ago, and as a result of this injury, he had been in an out of hospital many times for surgery on his leg, but alsoother related problems. He had had a very rough go for many years andthis injury had impacted his own general contracting company very severely. I worked on him, just with the myofascial percussor and my hands for twohours one morning and then again the following morning before they left for the airport. This is what he said when he emailed me several weeks later: "I want to thank you first for what you did for me – for how much better I am feeling now ! My legs do not feel like concrete and I am walking so much better and with much less pain. Thanks to you! You are an amazing person. Every time I am walking I think about you what you did in four hours of work on my body. I spend hours and hours in physical therapy and I did not have a result like you did in hotel room. One more time - THANK YOU!! As you suggested we are walking with walking poles and they have really helped with stopping the limp. I am moving again like I never thought I would."

Testimonials for Dr. Aleem Remtulla, Chiropractor

I first came to see Dr. Remtulla for back, hip, and wrist issues. Since the treatments, I've noticed multiple improvements such as decrease in pain in my back and hips, and much less tingling in my wrists and hands. The treatments last and each one builds on the previous ones. My experience with more traditional chiropractors has been that I would go out of alignment again and again.

I've had a fantastic experience at this clinic with multiple practitioners. I've had the pleasure of working with Dr. Aleem Remtulla on the chiropractic front, and with Alia for RMT work. The clinic is a warm and welcoming environment and the way they approach your whatever journey of health or healing you are on is built on sound foundations and addressing root causes.

Testimonials for Alia Ridley, Massage Therapist

Testimonials for
Alia Ridley, Massage Therapist

As a very active person (when I wasn’t sitting at a desk), I started seeing Alia for massage treatments a few years ago to help release the muscles in my legs and back. From the first appointment I was incredibly impressed with her professional and caring nature - she unquestionably wants the best for her patients and to this day the quality of treatment remains the best I’ve received. We have seen a marked difference in the tension I was previously holding and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a RMT.

I have been coming to see Ms. Ridley for 5 months after suffering a lower back injury. While waiting for an MRI and eventually surgery, my sessions with Ms. Ridley have been instrumental in reducing pain and maintaining my mental health. I find Ms. Ridley to be very personable, knowledgeable and incredibly kind. When I told her I was experiencing extreme nerve pain, Ms. Ridley went home and researched oils and aromatherapy that help alleviate nerve pain. I have continued my treatment with Ms. Ridley post op as well. She has been an integral part of my recovery and I cannot thank her enough. I would recommend Ms. Ridley to family, friends or anyone seeking a Registered Massage Therapist.

Testimonials for Mally Westlake, Massage Therapist

Have been seeing Mally at FIH for about 2 years. She is a phenomenal massage therapist—blending lots of medical and anatomical based knowledge with a warm and generous energy. She’s helped a ton with concussion and whiplash recovery, ankle sprain rehab, and general maintenance. Have and would recommend her to anyone looking for a strong, yet nurturing, massage therapist. The treatments last and each one builds on the previous ones. My experience with more traditional chiropractors has been that I would go out of alignment again and again. Dr. Aleem's methods really stick!

Testimonials for Mallory Riedlinger, Massage Therapist

 Mallory is wonderful! She is a highly skilled RMT. I’ve got into couple of car accidents and ended up with many injuries including CRPS. Mallory was able to explain what my problem was and how she was addressing it. She is a professional who is very easy going. she makes sure that you're feeling well at the end of a session. Overall, I will recommend her to everyone if they asks me for a great massage therapist.
Melika T.
Mallory is everything a RMT should be. She is personable and you feel welcome every time you step into her treatment room. She carefully listens to your concerns and follows up with a treatment plan that is perfectly suited to you. She checks in at the right moments to see how you are feeling and if there is anything that you prefer regarding pressure etc. It is important to have that comfort during any body work and she provides that care. I will be a lifetime client and recommend to anyone that I can. Go see her if you are looking for a professional and attentive RMT!
