    Gigi originally hails from Ventura County in Southern California. The military brought her family here in early 2017, and she has raised her daughter in the DMV area ever since. She hopes to move back home to California one day, but until then plans to soak up her time here in VA and make connections that will last beyond geographical barriers.

  • Darcy P.
    Chiropractic Assistant

    I have been a long-time patient at Spine Arts Center and I am so excited to be a part of the team as a Chiropractor Assistant! I have grown up in Springfield, VA my whole life. I studied at Liberty University and received my bachelor’s degree in Human Services. One day I hope to work in the Humanitarian Aid field and travel around the world helping people in need. In my free time I love being out in nature and going on hikes with my dog. I also love reading and watching movies or shows with my friends and family. I have benefited so much from Chiropractic care myself and I hope to help others benefit from it as well.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    It’s amazing! I can move so much more easily. My pain level has been reduced more than I could have ever believed it could.

    Brian L.

    I am amazed at the improvement that I have had. I have not had a full night’s sleep in 5 years, in spite of going to other doctors in other states. I cannot take pain killers, which is good because I got the root cause of the problem fixed, and not just covered up. My wife even notices that I have more energy and am happier without the pain.

    Armondo S.

    I strongly recommend Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic; it was a surprise that it worked much better than medications. You can’t beat getting better and feeling good without medication.
