"The chiropractic adjustment releases the subluxation, allowing the system to begin the process of restoration back to a state of ease.
This is a process and not an event."
Subluxation and Chaos Theory
Meet the Doc
Dr. Maria DeCosse is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic and founder of Bee Well Chiropractic in Nevada City, California. She completed her undergraduate degrees in Philosophy and Communications at the University of Hawaii – Hilo in 2006 and received her doctorate in Chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College - West in Hayward, California in 2017. She is extremely passionate about vitalistic chiropractic and is committed to the lifelong learning of her craft as well as personal growth to better serve her practice members.
MISSION & PHILOSOPHY:
Dr. Maria loves helping people find more ease in their bodies by delivering specific and powerful chiropractic adjustments. She believes that chiropractic care allows an opportunity for healing, growth and personal evolution. Health is not merely the absence of symptoms, and pain can be one of our greatest teachers. The Chiropractic adjustment is about reconnecting us to our innate intelligence which restores physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. When we clear the nervous system of subluxation, we can release past traumas and find more freedom in our bodies and minds. Bee Well Chiropractic takes a vitalistic and holistic approach to chiropractic care. We focus on the Chiropractic adjustment yet also look at the whole person to meet their specific goals and needs. Dr. Maria has instruments for those who require a lighter touch, as well as a tonal technique called Bio-Geometric Integration, which encourages you to actively participate in the process by using breath and movement while you are getting adjusted. She will offer functional exercises and nutritional guidance if needed. She has a wide range of local practitioners she can refer you to as well, to be sure that you get the support you need.
Dr. Maria loves to serve people of all ages and backgrounds and especially loves working with pregnant women, babies, and children. Adjusting pregnant women allows their nervous system and their baby’s nervous system to be at its optimal potential, and also has shown to help common symptoms such as back pain, ligament pain, acid reflux, and breech. Dr. Maria trained as a Doula while in Chiropractic school and loves to help assist and educate women in creating an empowering birth experience. She is Webster Certified, a Chiropractic technique that is specific to working with pregnant women. Since 2017, she has been a board member of the local birthing network called The Nest.
Working with children is amazing because they do not have as many layers to unwind as adults do. They respond very quickly to Chiropractic adjustments. These adjustments are very gentle and light compared to the adjustment an adult would receive, giving children the opportunity to allow their own innate intelligence to flow freely throughout the body. When we reconnect that intelligence it can help with many childhood conditions such as behavioral issues, mental and emotional blockages, and illnesses. This can be as simple as allowing a baby to turn their head to both sides so that they can breastfeed more easily, or by clearing a subluxation at the first cervical vertebrae so their digestive system works better or it allows their Eustachian tubes to drain which is the cause of many ear infections. Dr. Maria’s goal is to remove subluxation, which reconnects you to your power source and your body’s innate inborn ability to heal itself. Dr. Maria is an active member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
In her free time, you can find Dr. Maria on the yoga mat, adventuring with her husband Brion, or working on their garden and property up Bloomfield Rd. She frequently attends seminars and workshops to stay congruent with her “why” by continuing to train in the art of the Chiropractic adjustment and to deepen her understanding and ability to communicate Chiropractic philosophy. The days of passive health care are over. Dr. Maria will absolutely recruit you to participate in your healing process and will help you get more clear about how to help yourself heal and grow. She looks forward to serving you!
Dr. Maria is an incredibly skilled chiropractor. She is also incredibly calming and knowledgeable at the same time. She walks you through what's going on in your body while also making you feel like it's all going to be okay. Her patience with my body was so so needed at a time when it was really wound up and in a state of guarding.
Dr. Maria is truly one of a kind Doctor. My experience with her has been nothing but amazing. First off, she has such a big and beautiful heart, which radiates in her practice and her adjusting skills. I have been adjusted by many different chiropractors, and her knowledge and adjusting skills are top notch. She is gentle but delivers very powerful adjustments, which makes you feel an immediate difference in your mind and body. I highly recommend anybody in the area to get under care with her,
you will not regret it!
Dr. Maria is simply amazing. Her breadth and depth of skill, thoroughness, versatility, attunement, and commitment are off the charts. I've seen several chiropractors. This is a completely different experience. Some unique things about her: She doesn't just focus on the back and neck. This is a crucial difference between her and many chiropractors. There's the whole rest of the body too and she does techniques and adjustments in many areas. She uses a lot of different modalities and techniques and is always wanting to learn more. She wants to learn your body with you. She puts the time and attention into trying different things and paying very close attention to how your body reacts. She believes both her and the client have valuable insight about their body, and values clients' intuitions. She wants you to have a grounding experience versus a jarring one and uses presence and your breath to support that. She goes out of her way to accommodate and support you and makes a point to want to come in if somebody has an urgent pain on her day off. She's supported me so much that I feel compelled to write a review that will do her justice. Truly you've hit the jackpot. She's the best of em.
Coming to visit Dr. Maria is a whole body step in the right direction of healing. She truly cares about my wellbeing and addresses all aspects of my alignment. I've often felt pushed in and out of chiropractor offices, and I love feeling that my health is important to her. She understands the connection of the body and focuses not just on the problem area but the supporting areas as well. I've had low back and neck problems since I was a child and when she adjusts me, I feel the release at a deeper level than just a few cracks. I've seen so much improvement in just a couple weeks! I'm thrilled to finally have some relief from long-term pain and to feel my body coming into balance. She is kind, knowledgeable, and cares deeply about serving her community.
I wouldn't go to anyone else!
I had never seen a chiropractor before visiting Dr. Maria in response to a frozen rib that rendered me immobile. I know my body knows how to heal itself, but in this case, I had lost access to it with my breath & was afraid to touch the area. It seemed time was making it worse instead of better. Every visit with Dr. Maria created miraculous shifts in my ability to heal. She has a way of supporting the mind & body to reconnect. By engaging the injury under her care, I eventually found myself feeling MORE aligned than before it flared up. I now see it as a true blessing that it happened & am so glad I reached out for her help to make it so. I am now a believer in the unparalleled value of chiropractic adjustment. I am continuing to see her now to be pro-active in re-training my body into its ideal alignment, BEFORE it has to go out of whack again to get me to pay attention. If you’ve never experienced this healing craft, I highly recommend Dr. Maria to show you a better way to listen to & be in your body, so you can heal yourself as an ongoing process of self-love. ~L.P.
