I lead a very active lifestyle and participate in an aggressive yoga practice. I broke my foot a few years back and have had some surgeries. DL has done an amazing job of uncovering the connection between my injuries, my posture, and my pain. I have been working DL on average every 4-6 months for a couple of years now. She can immediately get my body back into shape and out of pain.

What I love the most about her healing philosophy is that it grounded in the way our natural body works. She helps to restore the structure so that the body can get on with the healing of itself, with the guidance of her expertise. Whether you have the opportunity to have her work with you one on one or whether you are learning techniques from her that you can apply to yourself and your own life, you will feel better with her as your guide, as you work towards your desired performance goals.

In a very short amount of time she pointed some things out about my xrays (and thus my foot) that no podiatrist ever mentioned and that is probably the source of what to concentrate on and focus on. I’m very grateful for the insight about how I am “put together.”

After working with DL, I found that many of the ailments that plague a dancer throughout the season-- random foot pain/knee pain, was both treated and troubleshot by her-- for example I would wear pointe shoes for her to assess positioning and amount and types of stress on the joint. She is particularly adept at creative solutions, from modifying Pilates exercises to theories on where an injury, unexpectedly, might come from.
A long term injury that used to require PT twice weekly, under her guidance, only requires maintenance one every 2-3 weeks, or as a heavy schedule demands.

DL Walker has been amazing. She patiently listened to my problems and was very interested in evaluating me and getting to the root of my foot pain. She tailored a program that would work for me and continued to update my plan as I progressed. I have seen significant improvement and the quality of my life has changed. I have seen a significant reduction in pain and I have changed my footwear, so I continue to see progress. I am able to take the ideas she has taught me and head off problems now as they arise. Thank you DL!

DL has a unique understanding of the human body and an unwavering dedication to uncovering the source of your problem. Her solutions are quick, practical, and easy to do. She was able to resolve my foot pain in 1 session. She was also able to offer me recommendation that ended months of suffering from sinusitis.
