“The sweetest nectar is within” – Ancient Mayan Proverb
Dr. Sergio was born and raised in San Jose, California; however, his family origins begin in the South of Texas in very small border towns. His father’s family is from Del Rio and his mother’s family is from Eagle’s Pass where his family lines are traced back to a time when borders did not exist. Dr. Sergio at an early age was drawn to creative building, bikes, skateboards, martial arts and being immersed in a spiritual life (as influenced by his mother, and maternal grandmother).
After High School, he studied Architecture and Chicano Studies at UC Berkeley and later completed his Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine. While at Western States University, Dr. Sergio was particularly drawn to soft and deep tissue manipulation. Among the techniques taught, IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation) and muscle/tendon manipulation were big personal favorites.
Dr. Sergio utilizes soft tissue manipulation to treat many conditions related to severe spinal trauma resulting from a variety of causes (auto injury, sports/martial arts injury and chronic pain due to inflammatory conditions). Dr. Sergio also holds advanced certifications for whiplash injury from the Croft Institute of San Diego, CA. Dr. Sergio is a certified Zone Technique practitioner and is proud to say that this is the foundation for his practice.
