Dr. Marie Starling has been a practicing chiropractor since 1995, employing the latest methodologies in her holistic practice to get to the heart of structural problems and illness. She empowers people to change the trajectory of their life, from suffering to health. And if it’s a problem no one else can solve—she really enjoys getting to the bottom of it for you.
Dr. Starling likes to say the universe pushed her into chiropractic. While working as a server during college, she slipped and injured her hip. After experiencing non-stop pain daily, she finally went to the chiropractic school and began receiving adjustments.
As she continued on the path to healing, Dr. Starling learned more about chiropractic and what it encompassed, which led her to embark on the path of natural healing.
In addition to the hip injury, Dr. Starling had many other issues—constant fatigue, daily runny nose, cold or flu every few weeks in the winter, brain fog, belly bloat and a GI system that did whatever it wanted. This led her to seek out the most amazing teachers in the functional medicine field before it even had a name!
She learned about the systems of the body and how healing really happened. It wasn’t about drugs, it was actually restoring the functions of the body. She has incorporated this knowledge into her practice and still continues her studies.
Dr. Starling started her educational journey at the Cleveland University-Kansas City, receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology, before earning her Doctor Chiropractic at Cleveland Chiropractic College in 1995.
She has additional certifications in Acupuncture and N.A.E.T. Allergy Elimination Technique, and is a Diplomate of the College of Clinical Nutrition (DCCN).
Dr. Starling also holds professional certifications with the Colorado Women’s Chiropractic Association (CWCA), as a co-founder, former vice president, and board member. She’s also a member of the Colorado Chiropractic Association, (CCA).
As a Functional Medicine specialist trained in rehabilitative chiropractic techniques, pediatric care, clinical nutrition, and allergy elimination, Dr. Starling has the experience and skills to address the most challenging of cases. Her patients know that she listens to their issues and cares about finding specific solutions tailored for their problems.
In addition to maintaining a collaborative practice, Dr. Starling is a dynamic speaker who passionately shares innovative techniques for wellness and vitality.
Dr. Starling is an avid seeker of transformation and self-development and loves to travel. She does meditation retreats, vacations where she can read, goes camping, and organizes many community get-togethers.
