"Allix is an amazing skillful Holistic Practitioner. I have suffered for years with neck and lower back pain. I have been treated by chiropractors and physical therapists which helped to a point over the years. Allix addresses not just symptoms or trigger points, but she takes a whole-person approach to hands on care. She has healing hands. I trust that after our sessions, I will experience relief. Allix is beautiful woman who cares deeply about her client's overall well-being and wellness. I trust anyone who is treated by her will feel the same!"
"I have suffered with back problems on and off for most of my life. Recently I injured my neck and was in excruciating pain, I couldn’t even lay down to sleep. Within three treatments my body recovered. Traditional medicine prescribes pills which don’t actually heal the source of the problem. I also recommended three different people who were experiencing issues that working with Allix was able to resolve."
"I couldn’t be more grateful for the treatment I received from Allix. Allix is a true healer and is able to combine anatomical physiology and intuition by treating the whole person. When I first came to Allix, I was limping and could barely walk from the subway to her office. After only three sessions, I was fully recovered and back to my running routine. She taught me how to realign my body and recognize patterns within my movement to keep from getting re-injured. Allix has a deep understanding of the physical body, as well as the mind-body connection. She allows for a nurturing and releasing experience and is focused on getting her patients back to normal as quickly and efficiently as possible."
"I’m exercising 5 to 6 days a week (riding/running) and sitting at a desk Monday to Friday. I always know when my body isn’t aligned. Allix’s methodology is a smooth but forceful treatment that’s very effective. She quickly identifies the cause and adjusts without the brutal sharp force applied by some practitioners to gain the crack. This means I can recover quicker and feel like I’m firing on all cylinders. Absolutely recommend Allix’s magic hands."
"Allix’s extensive knowledge of the human body, along with her grace and commitment, are evident from the moment she places her hands gently on my shoulders at the beginning of each session. With just that first touch to begin to observe how my body is aligned, I can feel all the stress and tension of life in New York City begin to fall away. As a very active 71-year-old, still dancing, gardening, running up and down subway stairs, as well as traveling the world, I find that seeing Allix is a way to insure that all of the different parts of my body - muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, bones, organs - are exactly where they are supposed to be, and able to work in support of each other. Not only do my sessions with Allix allow me to move freely, but I find that I am healthier, have more energy, and feel more at ease in my body than I have in years. I am profoundly grateful to Allix for the enormous contribution that she makes to the quality of my life!"
"Allix listened to all of my concerns, and made me feel relieved and hopeful about my orthopedic conditions. It was the first time that a practitioner told me that we would work holistically on all of my issues. Allix is clearly educated and knowledgeable of the human body, and is considerate and thoughtful in her treatments. I highly recommend Allix as a skilled and empathetic professional."
"Allix is gifted with a unique sensitivity to human mobility and emotions. Her technique is precise and almost magical. I am so grateful I came across her while training for the New York Marathon."
"The Osteopathic approach to pain relief and discomfort is game changing! I had been struggling with a lot of lower back pain and decided to give Allix a try. I was amazed at how gentle yet effective our sessions were. Within a day of my session, I had greater range of motion and felt so much relief. I can’t believe more people don’t know about this type of therapy. I legitimately started telling everyone about Allix and handing out her business cards like candy. I’d say “run, don’t walk” to see her, but that might be the problem you’re trying to fix! If so, see her - ASAP!"
"I’m so grateful to have stumbled upon Allix. I was suffering from serious back and shoulder issues and was originally looking for alternative help. When stumbling upon her office in LIC, I booked a session and with her osteopathic manipulation she helped alleviated my pain. She has instructed me in ways to correct my terrible posture which definitely contributed to my back & shoulder pains. Allix is super intuitive, patient & attentive to what I was going through. I definitely know she will do the same for you."
"I struggled with severe TMJ pain for almost a year and started seeing Allix in January. I left our very first session with more mobility in my jaw and less pain than I had in months. She is calm, reassuring and is extremely knowledgeable on the mechanics of the body and the way our parasympathetic nervous system can affect our mobility. The atmosphere is very relaxing and it quickly became my hour of self care. I left feeling more balanced, refreshed and relaxed. I’ve experienced more mobility, reduced tension and more balance in my spinal posture since seeing Allix. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking alternative treatments to achieve a holistic healthy self."
"After years of progressive muscle loss in my neck resulting from earlier years of radiation treatment it became increasingly painful to hold my neck up straight without pain. A year ago Allix started to treat me with her expertise as an Osteopathic manual therapist. By my 3rd visit and to date I'm able to hold my head up with no pain. Allix is gifted treating pain. She is kind and generous and available for phone calls when needed. I highly recommend Allix."
“I am very happy that I found Allix Devenish for osteopathic treatment, especially since she is Canadian trained. It has worked wonders for me not only physically but mentally as well. I look forward to continuing treatment even after I have aligned and corrected everything, cheers Allix thank you! :)”
"First, I have to mention the pleasant energy that Allix obtained, which made a safe environment for me to trust her full heartedly. The treatment itself was a combination of stretching, massage, movement and chiropractic work (but more tender). This holistic approach, treating the whole body and not only my lower back, had me leave really in a mental and physical peace. Like with most of the other treatments I’ve tried, the pain was gone, but the difference with Allix is that she was transparent about that it takes work, change of bad habits, and discipline to keep it way. She gave advice based on my daily routine on posture and easy stretching exercises I could manage at home. After three visits and following her advice in between the treatments, I was so much better and had gotten my quality of life back. Thank you Allix for caring about my well being and for executing exquisite treatment and advice for a sustainable life."
