Tia is amazing. She is thoughtful, engaging, genuinely cares about her clients, and demonstrates a true passion of helping people get better. I had two foot surgeries back to back and going to Activcore has been the main contributor to helping me improve my mobility and strength. Tia has taught me not just to get back to where I was before surgery, but more importantly what I can do to be in even better shape. I'd recommend Activcore to people who sincerely want to get better and improve themselves, this has been a difficult commitment but one of the most important investments I could have made in myself.
Dr. Tia Totura has helped me get my life back! She is both knowledgeable and helpful. She has helped me work through many years of injuries and bad posture habits with her personal attention. I am getting back to doing the things I enjoy without the fear of lurking vertigo. I highly recommend her!
