As a dancer being active is crucial to me, I believe movement is the essence of our being. In ancient yogi believed that our age is determine by how flexible our spine is, which I see every day in my Chiropractic clinic in Newport Beach.
Chiropractic education has helped me understand spine-related problems, being a second-generation doctor, I always want to make sure I deliver the latest evidence-based treatment to my patients. I can help you move better and feel better! You can always find my recommendations for healthy living on my blog, or check out what I recommend for a healthier better life!
Dance and movement creates body awareness; this allows me to look at the change from a movement standpoint, Improving core performance and strengthen the spine has a pivotal part in our movement. Therefore, spine care is essential for active movement. Whether your goal is to improve core performance or move without pain, I can help you reach your goal! As one of the few female chiropractor in my Sport and Wellness Chiropractic clinic in Newport Beach, my goal is to help patient achieve their potential, I am always reachable thought email or a phone call!
