Treatment to the musculoskeletal system which enables the body to naturally heal itself. Typically involves spinal & joint manipulation.
Identifying, isolating and targeting the affected tissue to break up adhesions. This allows oxygen and nutrients to recirculate back into the tissue, promoting faster healing.
In 2019, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Southern California University of Health Sciences with a Doctorate in Chiropractic. I am practicing as a chiropractor at TrueNorth Health Center in Santa Rosa, California. TrueNorth Health Center embodies whole food, plant-based nutrition for optimizing health and well-being. This facility has been conducting clinically supervised water fasts for over 30 years to treat a variety of chronic lifestyle diseases. Half of my practice involves clinically supervised water fasting, while the other half involves chiropractic work.
At the center of my chiropractic practice is Active Release Techniques. This technique has been successfully used in the treatment of a variety of conditions that have traditionally been treated using invasive surgical procedures. Complementing this soft tissue technique, I perform spinal and joint manipulations to areas of the body that are in need of realignment.
My ultimate passion is whole food, plant based nutrition. This lifestyle has been proven to decrease inflammation, improve cardiovascular health and optimize immune function. I am certified through Cornell University in plant-based nutrition and my goal is to help people transition to a plant-based lifestyle.
Prior to my doctorate education, I graduated with a Bachelors in Exercise and Sports Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Aside from my studies, I was a competitive swimmer. In my time at Chapel Hill, I was an NCAA Champion and record holder in the 1650 yard freestyle, a 4-time ACC Champion and record holder and a 5-time World University Games medalist and record holder.
Throughout my swimming career, I was a 2-time US-Open gold medalist and record holder, 4 year US National team member and was the 2016 Olympic Team alternate in the 800 meter freestyle. My athletic experience gives a unique perspective with regards to approaching and treating sports-related injuries.
