Dr. Brian Stenzler, owner of D.R.E.A.M. Wellness, is a one-man who’s-who of chiropractic. As a student, he took a trip to Panama where he spent some time straightening spines pro-bono before performing an adjustment for then first-lady, Dora Boyd Perez Balladares. He flew back to The States where he finished his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 1998, just before graduating Summa cum Laude with a Masters in sports health science in 1999. Two years later, the Red Cross recognized him for his work at ground zero during 9/11, and in 2003 he was named New York Chiropractor of the Year by The New York Chiropractic Council.
And those were just the first five years of his career.
Since then, he’s shepherded a veritable hit parade of professional athletes, celebrities, and politicians back to health, including the likes of Junior Seau, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Orin Hatch. After a cross-continental move to California—where he promptly became the president of the California chiropractic Association—Dr. Stenzler opened the west-coast office of his practice, D.R.E.A.M. Wellness.
The core philosophy of D.R.E.A.M. Wellness is that true wellbeing is much more than simply being free of pain, disease, and sickness. The staff aims to harmonize physical, mental, social, and spiritual wellbeing by emphasizing five particular areas of health, which is where the name D.R.E.A.M. comes in: diet, relaxation, exercise, adjustment, and mental wellbeing. These five facets of wellness have inform the growing number of treatments they offer at their clinic, which includes chiropractic work, massages, nutrition programs, pilates, and more.
