Dr. Liz Giles, DC


LIZ GILES grew up on the coast of Maine before pursuing theater and film in Boston and New York City. She received her undergraduate degree in theatre from NYU in 2000. 

During her undergraduate years she became fascinated with movement and exploring how our movement patterns tell so much of our story. Her artistic attraction to movement quickly turned scientific when a back injury prompted her to find ways to heal and prevent this injury from recurring. She experienced profound results after practicing Pilates for a short just amount of time. Compelled to share this method with others, she became a certified Pilates trainer, focusing on rehab and injury prevention, in 2003. Her desire to do even more for her clients later prompted her to return to school. Dr. Giles earned her doctorate in chiropractic, graduating magna cum laude with both academic and clinical honors, from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. 

Dr. Giles is constantly exploring and learning new techniques to help her patients. She has taken courses in Graston technique, the Activator method, K-taping, Sacro-Occipital technique and is certified in A.R.T. (Active Release Technique). Dr. Giles is known for her compassionate and gentle approach and is honored to be nominated as one of Portland Monthly’s Top Docs in both 2016 and 2017.

Dr. Giles is available at Portland Healing Space on Saturdays.

To schedule with Dr. Giles on a weekday for chiropractic care or Pilates rehabilitation, you can find her at her SE location at Portland Pilates Collective and Wellness Center. For more information please see www.lizgilesdc.com
