Dr. Daniel Cordero B.S. Kinesiology, D.C.

Functional Movement Specialist

Dr. Cordero is a native to San Diego. Growing up with a very active lifestyle, Daniel spent most of his youth being active and playing hockey. He eventually became a competitive roller hockey player and traveled throughout US and Canada. In his late teens, Daniel discovered weight lifting, and further developed his passion for fitness. He graduated from San Diego State University with a bachelor in Kinesiology, an emphasis in Health Fitness and Nutrition.  Not only a chiropractor, Dr Cordro is also a certified personal trainer by NSCA, certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, by NSCA, level one Functional Movement Screen certified by Gray Cook,  and Certified USA weightlifting coach.  To this day, he still continues to play roller hockey, weight lift, and help others in their desire to active an active lifestyle.

With a background in sports, weight lifting, and chiropractic, Daniel is more of a movement / exercise physician.  His style of treating injuries and pain is different than the majority of his peers. Dr. Cordero not only assesses the injury, he takes into account the whole body to find imbalances in anatomy and movement.  He doesn't just treat the site of pain; he investigates the body’s movement capabilities along with imbalances, to find the cause of the pain.  Once the compensations in muscles, joints, and movement patterns have been found, a program is then developed to restore optimal performance.  Unlike most Chiropractic practitioners movement and exercise is a large portion of Dr. Cordero’s treatment plan.  When you come in for a treatment, you can expect to work as well as have adjustments done.

She pursued her BS in Business Management while serving at a local seafood restaurant, started a family and dabbled in interior design, sushi making, painting, and as many hobbies as she could find time for.

Trisha Olson

California State Licensed Esthetician

Trisha's passion and excitement for skincare began years ago when she suffered from teenage acne and later from some scarring and sun damage. She wanted her skin to glow and keep a youthful look. After being a stay-at-home-mom for seven years and eventually deciding it was time to go back to work, earning her Esthetician License was the logical choice. Trisha believes that a daily home-care regimen with quality skincare products is very important. Additionally, monthly facials and, in some cases, enhanced and more aggressive procedures such as peels and micro-dermabrasion, will result in beautiful and more healthy skin. Waxing and eyelash extensions are other services Trisha provides to maximize your overall sense of beauty and well-being.

Robert Pearson Jr.

Massage Therapist
Raga Energy Practitioner

How I became an energy Practitioner/Massage therapist.
My career path of therapeutic healing massage was built upon a solid foundation of Raja yoga energy work. That work, combined with my commitment to the field of social services, has given me an avenue to emotional and physical well-being. This embodies: Advance circulatory and sports massage; Deep tissue manipulation; Shiatsu Massage and Anatomy. This knowledge base benefits both body workers and energy healers.
Although I don’t profess to heal anyone, most clients do feel immediate effect with relief from muscle tension and emotional stress. Stress is a debilitator of health and inner peace. And it is necessary we address this issue. In all of my work I envision total healing and wellness for all of my clients. My intention is to be an advocate for wellness, healing, and empowerment. I believe in the power of thought and in the support of the universe in all possible healing endeavors.

Certified as a Raja Energy Practitioner along with my training as a massage therapist allows me to support and work with people from various backgrounds for physical and emotional support.
What to expect from a Raja Yoga Healing Session:
When I perform a Raja yoga energy healing session, I strive to provide a safe environment for the client. It is important that the client feels a level of trust necessary for therapeutic energy release in the session. Continuing to build a level of trust between client and practitioner,  It is important that we mutually acknowledge the awareness that the power of healing exists within ourselves; and is supported by a universal source. This process brings about positive change and personal empowerment. Raja yoga energy healing has increased my own ability to participate more fully in the personal and professional relationships in my own life. Raja yoga energy healing encouraged me to begin the necessary steps to become more spiritually aware and emotionally sound through the release of blocked energy and stress. These modalities of massage and Raja Yoga Energy Healing techniques have enhanced my awareness and ability to support others their personal empowerment.

SOCIAL SERVICES:  Background information
The concept of personal empowerment began to crystallize in my consciousness while employed by social services in San Diego, California. Working in social services for many years helped me understand people with various disabilities. In the process, I started to become aware of my own disabilities and short comings. So began my own journey to become whole and live an authentic and well balanced life. This process and understanding unfolded as I grasped that the empowerment of individuals was essential whether or not one is labeled disabled. We are all disabled if we cannot access our own power. I am an advocate for those who feel disenfranchised. I am an advocate for healing, transformation and empowerment.
This perspective has led me to energy work and healing including Raja yoga energy healing and the dynamic world of massage as a healing tool fulfilling the pursuit of personal empowerment and wellbeing.

I look forward to serving you Robert Pearson Jr.
