I have suffered from Parkinson’s Disease for 10 years. During those years I have tried many ways to relieve my pain from this disease. Going from many pills and pill combinations, to chiropractic programs, to quackery. Nothing helped to any great extent except pills with all the side effects. Then one day day a friend introduced me to Marcie Evans at Serenity. She encouraged me to give Yoga a try. I had nothing to lose so I decided to give it a try. This decision has turned out to be one of the better decisions I have ever made. Within about two weeks. I began to notice that my symptoms of PD began to to a diminish to a large extent. I still have to do all the right things: Eat right, exercise and listen to Marcie but my life has improved dramatically. So give Marcie at Serenity a try. I am so glad I did.

As a middle-aged female with Fibromyalgia, a herniated disc in my lower back and degenerative disc disease in my neck, I was resolved to living with pain. My wonderful chiropractor recommended that I contact Marcie Evans to work with her utilizing Pilates and the reformer as an adjunct to chiropractic care. I quickly experienced symptom relief and received an incredible education because of her depth of knowledge of the human body. I recently added the Anti-gravity class to my fitness routine and it has been life changing; with its focus on deep tissue/fascial release and decompression of the spine through inversion, I am pain free. I never thought I could live without pain; Marcie and her amazing team has given me hope and confidence that with the innovative approaches they utilize, I can find relief and medication-free pain management. I am forever grateful for their efforts, interest and willingness to take the time to listen and customize a routine that is the most effective for me.** I want to express my deep gratitude to the team at Serenity for their dedication to holistic healing and their willingness to bring new methods to health and healing.
