He is also certified in Shoulder Functional Assessment from the Motion Palpation Institute, Sole Supports (Biomechanics and Orthotics Certification), and in LightForce Laser Therapy.

Lauren graduated from Auburn University with a bachelors degree in apparel merchandising in 2011. She moved with her husband, Chris, to San Francisco, and in her time there she grew her yoga practice. Due to intense physical activity during training, she experienced injury first hand. Chiropractic work provided healing and enabled her to get back to what she loves. This prompted a career change and Lauren is now a CTA as well as a certified yoga teacher, with an emphasis on restorative movement. You can bribe Lauren with puppies, coffee and food covered in hot sauce.
