Dr. Sarah Kotlerman

Clinical Director

Anna’s passion with helping start Averio Health Institute in 2012, and continuing on as the CEO today; is her understanding of the human body’s potential to heal and regenerate, by design. This understanding is a combination of growing up in a Chiropractic family, with an amazing D.C. for a Dad, and watching people’s lives be positively changed by this type of result-driven healthcare.

Her career started with wearing many hats in the early days: from certified in all on-site objective testing, certified X-ray technician, front desk, doctor’s assistant, facilities management, and more. She continues on today overseeing and growing Averio Health Institute. 

Her passion in regenerative chiropractic is  making sure everyone knows what their body is capable of, that no-one needs to suffer if they knew their options, and chose health. A special interest for her is with children’s health. This has been accomplished through writing, illustrating and publishing a children’s book on regenerative chiropractic, “Discover Your Amazing Brain: Health from the Inside Out“. 

Anna also created, designed and implemented a regenerative chiropractic children’s program, for health challenged children and their families, with financial assistance received. This incredible program developed into the first documentary produced by Averio, called “Health For Our Future“. The documentary is currently available on DVD, and has been shown in theatres in Washington State.

In 2022, Anna received the “Thomas Campbell Activism Award” awarded to her for her work with ‘Health For Our Future’. This award is for extraordinary work representing the Chiropractic profession, raising awareness of important issues, and championing the causes of its community. 

Her other passions in life include: family, friends, music & singing, building and creating, being outdoors, being active, traveling, creating new chiropractic opportunities for people, working hard, service to others, and most importantly, loving others and pursuing truth.

“You did it; you changed wild lament into whirling dance; you ripped off my black mourning band and decked me with wild flowers. I’m about to burst with song; I can’t keep quiet about you, God, my God, I can’t thank you enough.” – Psalm 30:11-12

“I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” – Martin Luther


Dr. Kotlerman started her clinical career as a diagnostic, nutritional therapist specializing in mental imbalance and nutritional deficiencies. Although Dr. Kotlerman was running a successful practice in nutrition, it was obvious that there was a missing piece, as many clients needed more. It was at this time that Dr. Kotlerman walked the El Camino de Santiago, in Europe, and had a life-changing experience that showed her that she needed to commit to the process of being a chiropractor. Four days after returning to the United States, she was enrolled in Life West Chiropractic College in San Francisco, CA. 

She graduated Life West Chiropractic College with Emerald clinical honors and as a recipient of the Carl Dieter Philosophy Scholarship. Dr. Kotlerman received education and certification in: Thompson drop table, toggle, diversified Gonstead, activator, DNFT, pediatric, pregnancy, and SOT Chiropractic techniques. 

Dr. Kotlerman has since specialized in Averio FNT, a tonal, low-force chiropractic technique that uses sustained contact in specific areas in order to change spinal alignment and function. 

Dr. Kotlerman is a published author with two books. Her clinical results book, “Exceptional Health: You Can Have It!” and her personal memoir, “Seeing Magic“. In addition to her books, she has published 6 international case studies in collaboration with the Australian Spinal Research Foundation and the Pan-Asian Chiropractic Journal. 

Dr. Kotlerman is also a professional speaker, and regularly speaks on the topics of regenerative chiropractic, heavy metal and environmental toxicity, spinal ligament instability, and neurological chiropractic.

She also serves as a District Two board member for the Washington State Chiropractic Association and is a founding member of the soon-to-be Washington Chiropractic College.

Our History

Averio's Roots

Averio was established in 2012, by Founders, Dr. Avery and Lisa Martin, and Anna Martin. 

Dr. Martin, through his 40+ years serving as a Chiropractor, knew that people needed more. That more developed into a dream of a place where people could get concentrated care. Averio was born.

Dr. Martin continues to help patients at the Institute, as well as, provide empowering daily emails for those who are ready to truly understand health and how to have it.
