It is validating and healing to witness Dr. Kristan making space for people in the myriad of identities that they hold. I have a million wonderful things to say about the way in which I’ve experienced her care thus far… the desire to make chiropractic care more accessible, and her expressing that seeing folx accessing care is the win/win. I’m very touched by this ethos, and just really do want to take a minute to pause and say thank you.


At Your First Visit

Your first visit to the office gives us the opportunity to get to know you and learn about your health concerns & goals. After a tour of our comfy space, Dr. Kristan will sit one-on-one with you to review your health history. This is the perfect time for you to provide as much detail about your individual needs and concerns.

Next, we will evaluate how your neuro-spinal system is functioning by performing any necessary orthopedic exams and analyzing your spine. This neuro-spinal assessment is an extremely important part of our initial intake process as we are able to test, rather than just guess, how your nervous system is doing. If X-ray’s are needed, we take this opportunity to refer you to our imaging center.

After your neuro-spinal analysis, you will receive a comprehensive structural analysis which gives you a deeper look as to how your body adapts to stress and how we will approach your health concerns. At this visit, we will explain in great detail your findings and present your specific care plan recommendations.

Finally, with your consent, we will adjust you! After we align your spinal-neuro connection, we give you any specific at home care instructions, and schedule your next visit! Please allow 60-75 minutes for this visit.

Serving the greater Oakland community.

Using specific analysis and a careful assessment of the nervous system, Chiropractic care allows your body to heal itself.
