Trish has been able to help me when I was in extreme pain…

“I have had the pleasure of receiving treatment from Trish. She is very knowledgeable about true health and how the human body and mind play a role in overall health. She is also extremely compassionate when it comes to serving the community for their wellness. Trish has been able to help me when I was in extreme pain during migraines and has also helped me using Reiki when I lost a family member. She uses many different techniques to tailor her treatment plans for her clients. I have had such great results from her treatments that I recommend her services to my patients.

As a chiropractic physician, it is imperative that not only joints be adjusted but that the soft tissue be properly addressed. Many times I have come across patients that do not respond to traditional home care stretches or massage therapy. I have then referred them to Trish for help. Together we have co-managed patients with knee pain, SI joint dysfunction and headaches just to name a few. I am grateful to have her as a body work therapist and colleague.”

Trish helped me mentally, emotionally and physically.

Before seeing Trish, my soccer play was suffering due to lingering injuries.  Trish helped me mentally, emotionally and physically.  Because of her efforts, I am stronger and a better soccer player.

Trish is extraordinarily knowledgeable about the human body and the path to healing.

For several years I have had the pleasure of working with Trish Fortune collaboratively with patients.  Trish is extraordinarily knowledgeable about the human body and the path to healing. In addition to her many skills to help with pain and body mechanics she goes above and beyond – educating her clients about how diet and lifestyle play a vital role in their overall health and well-being. Plus, she is very understanding and compassionate in regards to her  clients needs.

Trish is a perfect example of health – she walks the talk – eating right, positive mental attitude, physical activity, and having regular body work done.

Being a chiropractor, I overuse my body on a daily basis.  Trish has helped me with several muscle issues over the years.  I always feel exceptional improvement after her treatments. We have worked together with patients over the years and they always express improvement as a result of her care.  Trish has helped my patients with many issues including IT band issues, low back pain, and decreased flexibility. My husband is an avid runner and bicyclist and was having some severe chronic IT band issues for over ten years.  After sending him to Trish several years ago, he has not had any problems since.

Whether you are an athlete, mom, desk jockey, or just someone who what’s to change your life – Trish Fortune is the answer.

Trish has a way of brightening your day and making you feel special.

Trish changed my life.  Her true calling is to educate and heal people.  She helped me achieve my goals physically, emotionally and mentally.  Trish is extremely knowledgeable and can help you achieve any goal(s) you are willing to set.  She is the best in the area (Northern Virginia) for Ki-Hara, Reiki and Psych-K.  Trish kept me from having back surgery. She also introduced me to raw foods cuisine.  Her meals and snacks are absolutely delicious.  She showed me that it’s not as difficult to prepare raw meals as I originally thought.  Trish has a way of brightening your day and making you feel special.

Trish’s all-encompassing approach to physical and mental wellness is truly life changing.

“Trish’s all-encompassing approach to physical and mental wellness is truly life changing.  She has helped and guided me for several years now, through good times and bad, with her holistic methodology that include harnessing energy, understanding
what your body is trying to tell you, balanced physical fitness, and a healthy diet.  I feel like I am more in-tuned with myself and the natural surroundings around me.
It is the totality of her knowledge that is the perfect example of 1+1+1=5!

Trish is a knowledgeable and caring person.

“Trish is a knowledgeable and caring person. She has been very good at identifying the root causes of my pain and takes time to understand problems and tailor the care accordingly. Her balance of friendliness and professionalism helped create a very comfortable atmosphere for me to be open and discuss issues. I also like how Trish takes the time to explain the technical details behind the causes of my pain. I enjoy the sessions with her as not only do I come out with less pain,  but is also fun and refreshing.”

Exceptional Treatment

“Trish is a skilled, intuitive practitioner that I feel incredibly lucky to have discovered.  I have been suffering from weak and inflexible hip flexors and low back pain for quite some time.  I noticed positive changes immediately from the Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching method.  Trish does a great job explaining what I should be feeling and explaining the mechanics behind the particular exercise. The stretching has relieved my low back and sciatica symptoms and increased the range of motion around my hips.    Trish is very skilled with the movements and her knowledge is impressive.  I would definitely recommend her work!”

Kathy Perot

Trish’s positive energy has helped me improve myself and help my family.

“What a difference Trish has made in my life! I started out with chronic low back pain that Chiropractic alone couldn’t resolve, a chronically tight lower body which made climbing a flight of stairs hard.  I was struggling to lose weight. Trish suggested I try Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching. Trish will tailor any exercise to your body. Trish asked me to keep a food diary to see if food was causing the inflammation in my body. Three weeks later she gave me simple ways to start eating more raw foods. I have lost 11 pounds in the 9 weeks since I’ve been a client of Trish’s and I eat all day long! Trish’s positive energy has helped me improve myself and help my family.”

“Trish is extraordinary!  I started out seeing her for Ki-Hara, but have ended up having her do Reiki and CranioSacral therapy on me and personal development coaching.  Trish has helped me with my weight management, including setting up a band exercise program to meet my needs and my schedule.  You have an issue?  Trish will find a way to resolve it!  The one thing I will not give up during the week is my “Trish time!”

She is truly a pleasure to work with.

“Trish’s expertise and knowledge base is amazing. With her multi-faceted approach she was able to quickly zero in on correcting my issues.  Also, she is truly a pleasure to work with.”

Since working with Trish, I have never felt better!

I have been working with Trish Fortune for the past three years and have been extremely happy with my results.  I had low back pain issues for the past eleven years.  Since working with Trish, I have never felt better!  I started seeing her weekly, then bi-weekly, now I see her once or twice a month depending on how I feel.  She really cares about helping you.  She quickly figures out where the problem stems from and puts together a regimen to work on while you are at home.  She knows so much information regarding the human body.  Trish can help you better understand what is going on with your body.  I can honestly say I am very happy to have met her, and will continue to see her as I see fit.  She has also helped me with nutrition, and is extremely knowledgeable about this subject matter.  I am very confident that Trish can help you, too.

She is an excellent listener and flexible in customizing treatment to the individual for achieving positive results

Trish Fortune offers a wealth of alternative approaches to healing, as well as preventative measures to follow for maintaining one’s health.  I first met Trish Fortune in the spring of 2010, shortly after having undergone major back surgery. After surgery, I found that my back muscles were stiff from disuse, causing me frequent discomfort.  Trish came highly recommended as a Ki-Hara therapist by Dr. Jennifer Taschler, the Fairfax City chiropractor who initially diagnosed my spinal condition.  Drawing from her background as a professional kinesiologist and practitioner of resistance stretching, Trish succeeded in getting my back and leg muscles to loosen up and eventually fire in harmony, affording me the flexibility and strength that I had lost through surgery.

In her treatment of me, Trish displayed keen knowledge of how each muscle of the body functioned and interacted with other muscles.  I attribute the Ki-Hara therapy administered by Trish as one of the two major reasons for my quick and lasting recovery from back surgery.  More recently, I have visited Trish for instruction in Qigong, to reduce stress and improve my overall health.  She has also helped me in designing a dietary regimen to support a healthy living style for controlling cholesterol and blood pressure.

Overall, in my experiences with Trish, I have found her to be highly capable in her avant-garde approach to healing.  She is an excellent listener and flexible in customizing treatment to the individual for achieving positive results.  Above all, she is extremely compassionate and trustworthy.  Those individuals seeking healing or wishing to maintain a healthy lifestyle will not walk away from treatment by Trish without benefiting to a great extent.
