I wanted to let you know that I felt the session from yesterday was a huge breakthrough for me. I woke up periodically throughout the night with my pelvic area "vibrating" if that makes sense--not painful contractions at all, nor uncomfortable--but something most certainly shifted. As I slept I had waves of sadness come and go--the important thing is it left--and in waves. This was extremely powerful for me. I know in my heart and soul that the blockages to me moving forward in my life were residuals from rape and abuse--and I still carry that on a cellular level.  I have done TONS of work over the years to clear this--but by-golly you nailed it--gifted healer that you are!  Bless your heart and thank you so much!

I recently met Nicky Silver in a professional course we both attended.  When I learned she is a chiropractor, I asked her to consult with me on some current health issues and various holistic options I could investigate.In our meeting, Nicky assessed, explained, and demonstrated why I have my set of symptoms.  She was warm, asked comprehensive questions, and showed great insight into the information. 

I was able to understand my challenges in a way that no one else had explained to me. Nicky's approach gave me what I needed to feel confident and decide on a range of next steps to take. 

I also appreciated the ongoing validation she gave me about all the things I am currently doing to enhance my self-care.

I first met Dr Nicky as a week long gathering we both attended when she noticed my limp
and casually worked on my ankle.     Four years earlier my 65 pound poodle sat on my ankle and dislocated one of the bones. Not knowing exactly what had happened or what to do about it, I lived with the pain.

Until, Dr. Nicky.   She rubbed, massaged, tapped and stretched for a few moments. Then as if by “magic,” the pain was gone. Never to return again. A few years ago, a similar thing happened to my wrist. Again, not knowing what to do, I lived with that pain for two years, until I remembered Dr. Nicky.  I went for one treatment of her “magic” and sure enough my pain is gone.   Dr. Nicky can help you too!!

I've been looking for somebody that can do what she has done in just three visits. I've had back problems since I was 16.  I was also in a car accident 12 years ago and have had two children born vaginally in the last few years. All of these things have left me, not with severe pain, but chronic issues with my back, shoulders and tailbone.

Nicky has done in three visits what other chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists and other therapists have been unable to do in a dozen or more visits.  I'm really excited because it seems that I will finally be able to heal myself!  She's an easy to talk to person.  She's caring and un-judging, she's honest and gentle in the work she does.   She loves puzzles and tries to connect things together that others might think of as separate issues. I've already recommended her to friends and family! She was recommended to me by a dear friend and it just seemed right.  I tend to listen to my gut feelings about things, and definitely won in this case!!

Dr. Nicky Silver is a unique and extraordinarily effective healing facilitator.  She has a very unique way of guiding essence into parts of the body that were blocked and I can (thankfully) say that it works.   
She helped me clear the symptoms of some stagnant pelvic energy that had plagued and confounded me (and others that I sought help from) for over a decade. 

She is more sensitive to vibration than anyone else I’ve ever met, and she’s very enjoyable to be around—she’s totally present and puts you at ease.  

To sum up Nicky and her expertise: She is down to earth, and she brings you down to earth!   Definitely give her a try.

A while back I had my second hip replacement surgery.   Although physical therapy and massage were helpful, I still felt somewhat "out of whack".  The extended time period of being misaligned seemed to have torqued my body in subtle ways throughout.

With deep attention and concern, Dr. Silver accurately assessed and determined the sources of my issues through a detailed intake and exam.  She listens well, is engaged and engaging.  Her treatments are gentle and effective, and the positive results are with me still.  I would highly recommend Dr. Silver.

Nicky worked wonders on my 13 year old dancer’s knee injury.   Through thorough exploration, discussion, and listening Nicky discovered and treated the root of the problem—in the foot—rather than the more conventional approach of exclusively focusing on the treatment of symptoms in the knee.  It worked.  After four sessions my daughter was back on the dance floor after not dancing for over four months.   The chiropractic work turned out to be an excellent complement to the physical therapy exercises prescribed by our Kaiser PT. 

- Margaret R.

I believe the mind body connection is real, but I’m a skeptic when it comes to most alternative medicine.   I saw Dr. Silver for a problem with hip pain that couldn’t be identified by my conventional practitioners.   Her down-to-earth manner and comprehensive approach won me over, and soon I was not only rid of the pain, but left with some techniques and exercises to improve my walking.   She is a true healer. 

- Chad T.

Dr. Silver is an excellent chiropractor. She is warm, caring and genuine; I felt comfortable with her right away. She took a holistic approach to diagnosing my health and the causes of my pain. After taking the time to learn about my history, overall health and habits, and a physical exam, she was able to pinpoint my issues pretty quickly.

She gives me her full attention and truly listens to me during my sessions, which I have not found with past chiropractors. I look forward to seeing her each week, not only for physical relief, but also because I know I am addressing underlying causes of physical issues, preventing them from coming up again. She is a truly talented and knowledgeable chiropractor and healer. I highly recommend Dr. Silver!
- Rachel C.

Nicky is a talented practitioner and a true healer. She really pays attention to you as a whole person. After my mother died I was having lots of different physical symptoms and while I knew they were rooted in my emotional pain it really helped to have Nicky deeply listen to me as well as work on the symptoms.

- Judith R.

Wow, I really needed to do some releasing yesterday, and when I came home I did some more.  But, after your work, a Epsom salt/baking soda bath and some meditation, I awoke feeling so very much better.  Thanks for providing a safe space for me and for your capable and focused care.

- Helaye W.

Dr. Nicky Silver really saved my shoulder.  I had the sharpest pain in my shoulder for weeks.  I could only sleep in a computer chair the pain was so bad!   I went and got an MRI and I had an X ray and the doctors told me I had a calcium build up and inflamed tendonitis.   I was taking anti-inflammatory pills, norco, and wearing a sling but wasn’t getting better.   I went to see Nicky.  She asked me a bunch of questions (more than the doctor at the hospital did) and did some simple test and then did some work on my shoulder.   I had positive results the following day.   After a few days I was 100% and have been ever since.   THANK YOU DR. NICKY!!

- Ezequiel C.

Nicky is a wonderful healer.  She listens closely to the patient, carefully watches your walking and movement, asks pertinent questions and is an excellent diagnostician.  She has very good hands and good manipulation skills.   I always feel renewed when I leave her office.   I wholeheartedly recommend Nicky.

- Jane H.

Nicky knows how to listen. That is the first sign that she is an exceptional health care practitioner. Then she thinks about the problem and figures out a solution or something to try out of her extensive knowledge and experience. 

I have some very specific health issues and some more general aches and pains. Nicky has been working with me (in contrast to working on me) to find ways to alleviate my pain and retrain my ways of moving so as to find and maintain a less painful gait.

Nicky has a combination of deep knowledge and deep caring. I trust her, and with her I'm hopeful about my progress toward better health.

- Norma S.

I have been to countless chiropractors but unfortunately my experience has been that I only feel OK for a few hours after I leave their offices.    Dr. Nicky Silver is a truly caring and gifted practitioner.   She cares about the whole person, the interactions among the various systems--physical, emotional & spiritual, and is amazingly intuitive.   She knew exactly where to touch and press to help with my knee pain.   After I had seen her once or twice, my trainer commented that I was literally walking differently--much smoother, obviously in a lot less pain.    I only wish we lived closer to one another, so I could see her more frequently.

- Indigo C.

I want to tell you about a fabulous woman, Nicky Silver, who I started to get treatments from some time ago.   When I came home from my first appointment my partner said “you are walking differently.”  I had problems with my back for a big part of my adult life.

Nicky’s great combination of many years of experience and her intuitive approach works wonders for me! I feel more hopeful than ever that I don’t have to age with pain and discomfort.   She does not “crack” my bones (with which in the past other chiropractors have hurt me more than helped).   Instead, she is working with my muscles and my posture.  Nicky has a wide range of treatment styles that she fits into what your needs are. 

Nicky Silver is a masterful woman.   Her chiropractic skills have helped me many times.  It’s like she has fingers that can see.   I highly recommend her. 
- Eva P.

Nicky is wonderful.    She has such a big heart and is so knowledgeable and uses techniques that are not threatening but deeply healing.   She’s interested in your health from a holistic systemic perspective, not just physical alignment and truly invested in the whole you. 

- H. N.

I've seen my share of chiropractors and what sets Dr Nicky apart is her genuine warmth and care.   I'm a health practitioner myself (& super-picky as a result), so when I experienced Dr Nicky's treatment, I was surprised by how deep her work went with me (beyond physical I mean!)    I walked out feeling so good that I took a little extra time for myself to keep the feeling...you owe it to your body/mind to get treated by Dr Nicky if you've been looking for someone who's not only knowledgeable and physically skilled-you want someone who will make a difference.

- Anya D.

Sometimes people come into your life in the most unexpected of ways, with the most (wonderful) and unexpected of consequences.   Nicky found me, initially, as a color consultant for her new office.   At the end of our meeting, we chatted a bit about her practice.   I had a laundry list of orthopedic issues that seemed to be adding up.   I enjoyed working with her, so we scheduled an appointment for the following week! 

In our first session, I gave her the rundown-numerous childhood gymnastic sprains and strains, pre-tear ACL conditions in my knee from a skiing accident, a detached tendon in the arch of my foot from a misstep, and occasional lower back pain from a pinched nerve.   Doctors had recommended surgery for both the knee (6 years ago) and foot (3 years ago), but I'd opted instead to keep (literally) limping along. Though not tremendously painful, these injuries have affected the quality of my life.   My husband and I have a very active lifestyle, and I had been limited from skiing as well as backpacking for the better part of our relationship.   I was ready for that to change.

Nicky invited me to open a different narrative, letting go of the one that said, "I can't, I shouldn't, I won't ever be able to...", and exploring one of healing and of possibility.   She helped me tune into my body's positioning and imbalances, understanding the connections between all of the unhappy pieces and parts. Gradually, through gentle chiropractic care, deep tissue myofascial release, and craniosacral therapy, she is untwisting my many years of cumulative crookedness!   I feel straighter and better aligned.   I find more ease in yoga postures that once gave me trouble.   And most exciting, I hiked last week for the first time without a whisper of pain in my knee, arch or low back! 

Aside from being an intuitive and gifted healer, Nicky is accessible and funny! She is a woman of broad interests and many talents, and I enjoy our conversations as much as the physical results of our work.   I can't recommend her enough.
- Rachelle P.

You have an incredible gift.  Thank you for using it on me.   It really helped a lot!   My leg is much calmer and my whole body feels more peaceful.   Thank you, Nicky for making time in your busy schedule to come see me.

- Vicki B.

I've been to many excellent intuitive holistic healers, but when you combine intuitive skill with a thorough mastery of the body and how it works, you have a combination that's hard to beat.  Nicky amazed me with what she could see in my body just from watching me walk or bending my leg and she was able to release a tension spot that had eluded many different practitioners.  I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who wants to get at the root of a problem and feel it dissolve.

- Valeric C.

I am so grateful to have met Nicky.   She integrates her extensive knowledge of the body with a variety of tools, techniques and methods to create the best individualized session for what your body and spirit need in that moment.   Her exceptional ability to listen to your situation supports overall healing and makes you feel genuinely cared about.  I was deeply healed and supported physically and emotionally for a chronic shoulder pain and a traumatic injury.  I always leave sessions feeling profound shifts on many levels.  Nicky is a one-of-kind healer and I feel so thankful to have found her. I fully recommend her.

- Lindsey M.

Nicky is wonderful.  She has such a big heart and is so knowledgeable and uses techniques that are not threatening but deeply healing.   She’s interested in your health from a holistic systemic perspective, not just physical alignment and truly invested in the whole you.  

- Neil H.

I accepted the generous offer by Nicky -- take her up on it if you can, she's a magician of the body!! She's as intuitive and creative as she is knowledgeable.   I was fortunate to have her fist in my hip!
- Vicki B.

I am very grateful for your work with me yesterday ~ thank you!

You witnessed the change before I left. Sitting with and integrating the work your with me has been/is very powerful.

I experienced you following a thread, trusting your intuition, and even though it might have appeared(for lack of a better phrase)—all over the place—the result of your work is very potent.  From one practitioner to another, I can understand how you may feel uncomfortable or that it may feel a little disjointed but maybe that—it is a new form manifesting that you are discovering within yourself as you integrate your skills, breadth and depth of knowledge and wisdom. 

My experience with you was very profound as I reflect on the mind/body state I came to you with and then the process with which I was held, loved and guided through a serious of different modalities to bring me to a transformed and higher, more aligned frequency.   I left your office feeling empowered and more contained.   The word container, viscerally has new meaning for me thanks to you and your work. 
I also am very appreciative for the two exercises you gave at the end of the session to help me with trusting my right hip and ground with my feet on the earth with roller on the wall.   And, the one with pushing the wall in a lunge position to cultivate yang energy in my core—earth and fire.   All very potent in my healing process.   I was telling Goyo this morning that you are a gifted shaman in healing what ails people and also creating awareness to heal their relationship to what ails them—very powerful my dear!

We started a conversation just before I left and awoke to the run-out parking meter about—How do I decide what to do with different people. I am in a process much like yourself where I am learning to listen to inner wisdom for direction and guidance.   A teacher of mine talks about learning by trial, he called it trial by fire.   Over time and through experience we learn what works for us and we also get more attuned to our wise inner voice. 

In regards to working with you, I think if you either wrote in more details about what you are working through or we could talk on the telephone about it, I could get a better feel of how to best serve you.
What are you looking for with your own health and in relationship? In 6 months time what would you like to be experiencing as part of your behavior and life-style?

Have a beautiful day.
