Dr. Steph founded the Cafe of Life to be a space for connection and healing for families in the San Diego area.

A little bit about

Who we are


It’s called the “Cafe of Life” because, like a cafe, we strive to create an atmosphere where you can relax, take your time, connect with your peers and feel filled up with life.

Our doctors are award-winning and proud of the reputation that we’ve built. For us it’s so much more than just providing a chiropractic service. It’s about really connecting with each individual during each visit, it’s about building community and bringing families closer together. It takes a village, and we hope to be a part of yours.

Our Beliefs

 

We have radical beliefs about health. We believe that you have an innate intelligence that controls and coordinates every single action in your body. That intelligence has the potential to bring profound healing and vitality to each and every person. There is an energy that stirs each of us to life. We are more than just the sum of our parts. And together we are more than just the sum of individuals. We have trust in the process of life and honor the beauty in the journey.

Our brain and nervous system are protected by our spine and when the spine is in alignment through chiropractic care our body can thrive. When we are connected we function better. When we are in alignment we are more connected to ourselves, we are more connected to others, we are more connected to our community and more connected to the world.

We believe in taking care of families and providing affordable care because when families are balanced together it creates exponential healing and connection.

Our approach or technique

We love adapting our techniques for your individual needs. At the Cafe of Life we strive to create an excellent experience where we focus on what’s important to you. From low force, gentle techniques to more traditional chiropractic styles we aim to find the right adjustment for your age, comfort and preferences. We combine our heart and deep passion for health with the “kaizen” philosophy of continual improvement. We are always learning, researching and staying on top of advancements in the profession in order to provide you with the best, most up-to-date evidence-based care. 

We love helping people through tough times and physical struggles. We love working with individuals and families who are inspired to seek greater levels of health. We love working with pregnant mothers and infants to help them through the transition from womb to world. Wherever you are in life, we would love to be a part of your journey.

We don’t dictate. We’re your teammate.

We don’t “sell” you. We make conscientious recommendations.

All Cafe of Life docs are certified in Webster pregnancy technique by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. We all continually train in various techniques, but especially in pediatrics, cranial work, and oral work for lip/tongue ties. We pride ourselves in being able to adjust gently when needed and stronger when appropriate, all based on your preferences and needs. This allows us to care for multigenerational families.

“ This clinic truly stands up to it’s name. From the moment you walk into the clinic you are exposed to a radiant and healing vibe. Dr. Steph is full of life, knowledge and the resources you need to raise happy, healthy families.”

Our Goals

 

Our goals are YOUR goals. We know that your spine is the foundation to your health. Our goal is to restore and maintain your nervous system to proper function to allow your body to heal itself. The greatest healer is within each of us, our job is to clear the interference in the body and all your innate intelligence to do its job.

We know that pain is a great motivator. But most people don’t come in for pain, they come in for what the pain is preventing you from doing in your life. Maybe you’ve had pain for 20 years, but now you can’t lift your grandchild, we want to give you that back.
