Dr. Maia specializes in sport-related and active lifestyle treatment, specifically dance and performing arts medicine. She is intrigued by any sport/activity with atypical demands on the body, such as excessive mobility requirements, endurance events, pregnancy, etc. She is a member of the Seattle Performing Arts Medicine group volunteering with their free clinic, and draws insight from her background in dance and as a Certified Pilates Instructor.
