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.

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.
