Marie C. Fernandez is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and certified Yoga Instructor (partnered with lululemon) who empowers her patients to move beyond pain free Health and toward lifelong Wellness

Marie is passionate about utilizing 1:1 individualized care to help her patients accomplish their goals whether it be

  • recovering from surgery
  • overcoming pain
  • returning to the gym and getting new PRs

along with helping working professionals reconnect with their bodies and hobbies!

Marie first started her small business in 2019 while pursuing her Doctorate of Physical Therapy initially utilizing certifications with Yoga, Cup Therapy, and IASTM Blades. Marie's passion for empowering others grew as she realized how effective individualized care can be when given true quality time, creative freedom, and applying skilled physical therapy after actively listening to her patients' concerns while guiding them to be the best version of themselves both physically and mentally.

As a first-generation Filipino-American, Marie leads by example in the Health and Wellness industry to inspire others to work toward their goals despite being the minority. Marie advocates for Women of Color, females in fitness, and takes pride in being a Physical Therapist that encourages patients to move beyond pain-free goals but toward lifelong Wellness so that their bodies can keep up with their passions.

“It is not about striving for perfection but thriving consistently; I feel like it’s my purpose to guide others to be their best through Physical Therapy.”

Fun Facts

💃🏻 Dance is what started my passion for movement and I'm trained in multiple genres such as Jazz, Tahitian, Modern, Hip Hop and Pole Fitness

🗣️ I studied Spanish in college but learned to speak more effectively through travel, music, and past patients who became like family ❤️ 

🇵🇭 My parents grew up in the Phillipines and I was inspired to learn more Bisaya along with Tagalog after speaking Spanish consistently with my patients!

☕ I am an EXPERT of giving great food and cafe recommendations especially within all the areas I treat my patients 


Marie was amazing. She came to our home and made numerous accommodations for us. (And both of our cats loved her.) Just one session and both and I my husband are feeling massively better after her sports massage treatments.

My session with Marie was amazing. She is very knowledgeable and very friendly. She was able to figure out what problems I have been having, guide me through the whole session, and also gave me a care plan to take home and work on. What I also like about Marie is that she can implement movements with purpose and fit it into your lifestyle. I really enjoyed our session because not only was she educating me but also created a great environment to be in. I would highly recommend her for your next session.
