I was born and raised in Clovis, California where I spent the first 19 years of my life.
At 19, I served a two-year mission for my church in the North of England. Then I went to Brigham Young University where I met my wife Val; who I have been married to for almost 33 years. I then finished my undergraduate studies at Fresno State University, before going to Texas Chiropractic College. My wife and I have seven outrageously lovable children and their names are Jon(30), Lauren(28), Jamie(26), Mckenzie(23), Jake(20), Michael(18), and Julia(13). We love to spend time together. Our only child left at home is Julia, but we have replaced our kids that have moved out with dogs. We have 2 goldendoodles and a full size poodle and a schnauzer. In our free time we find joy spending time at the lake, watching movies, and going on trips together. I have many projects around the house and enjoy fixing things, exercise, and hangin with my dogs.
MY FIRST EXPOSURE TO CHIROPRACTIC came early in my life when I suffered extreme pain due to an accident. At the time, there was little known as how to handle this type of problem. My Uncles were medical doctors and prescribed pain pills and this worked for a while. The pain soon returned worse than before and so my dad suggested I visit a Kinesiology chiropractor since he had been helped in the past. My M.D. uncles were skeptical of me going to a Kinesiologist chiropractor but my dad’s love and experience prevailed. The first treatment relieved so much of my pain I just simply couldn’t believe it. And with every treatment I felt better and better and a sense of joy increased with every visit. This aroused deep within me a profound urge to help others!
I chose to devote my life to natural healing because it’s exhilarating to watch the body heal itself-mine or someone else’s body!

In 2007 after 13 years in Austin Texas I moved to Roseville 14 years ago to be closer to family, and the recreational things this area has to offer. I have loved this area and my practice has been much like family to me. You grow to love the people and the patients you care for. I look forward to getting to know you and gaining your trust.
MY DESIRE FOR MY OFFICE IS TO HELP AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE GET WELL AND STAY WELL. What seems to make my practice unique is that I use nearly every available cutting edge technique.

His first exposure to Applied Kinesiology came when he was in chiropractic college and was super stressed out and having a whole lot of fatigue, digestive problems, and migraine headaches. He was constantly getting adjusted but nothing was fixing him.
Wanting to find a solution to these issues he visited Dr. John Bandy who practiced Applied Kinesiology in Austin and had a great practice treating all the University of Texas athletes. Lance Armstrong was one of his patients that he helped. Doctor Bandy reduced the injuries At the University of Texas by 60%. Doctor Bandy tested Dr Brian’s muscles in his body and determined that his problem was with his Gallbladder and that his diet was contributing to his problem and that he needed to clean it up by eating better and take some nutritional supplements.
In a short amount of time his problems improved and his energy came back and his headaches went away. He decided from that point on that he wanted to practice this way so he chose Austin so Dr. John Bandy could Mentor him. Dr. Brian studied with him for many years and Dr Bandy helped Dr Brian become a master of eliminating many problems for his patients.
He then studied under influential doctors as Dr. Evan Maladdenhoff, head team physician for the Kansas City Chiefs, Dr.Timothy Francis, Don King’s professional boxers doctor & Dr. George Goodheart, founder of applied kinesiology.
He chose to devote his life to the natural healing because of the exhilaration it is for him to watch the body heal itself. He truly believes the body has great power to heal about anything if the stumbling blocks are properly removed. He is grateful he chose natural healing because he has enormous passion doing this work day in and day out working with patients who are committed to the healing process and becoming truly healthy. He loves to educate and inspire patients to strive for and achieve optimal health. He believes with all his heart in the principles of alternative healing which are that the power within our bodies has unlimited capacity to improve and heal.
He believes with all his heart how he practices and always strives to improve. He loves to see people get well and see miracles everyday.
