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.
The Spa Gregorie team won Spa Finder’s Reader’s Choice award for Best Day Spa of 2011 for rejuvenating skin with Spa Gregorie's botanically enriched product line and encrusting toes with Swarovski crystals. In addition to brining beauty and relaxation within grasp, each location expands the reach of Western medicine with alternative therapies for pain relief and programs geared toward new mothers and oncology patients. Contributions to the Make a Wish Foundation and multiple cancer research organizations echo this allegiance to health care, and any nonprofit group or charitable organization may use the Del Mar spa's conference room for free. Attentive to both human and environmental health, Spa Gregorie's efforts to reduce waste, energy consumption, and chemical use earned OC Metro's 2011 Green Team award.
In 2011, the International SPA Association honored Spa Gregorie's CEO Angela Cortright with the Dedicated Contributor of the Year award. The press release cites her commitment to well-being and public service beyond her three eucalyptus-scented spas and reveals her favorite quote to be Muhammad Ali's maxim, “Service to others is the rent we pay for our room here on Earth.” This attitude has earned the company an avalanche of awards, which document the good works of its expert aestheticians, hair designers, and massage therapists, as well as the saint bernards that dig them out from under piles of laurel wreaths each day.
Healing others through touch has been a lifelong passion for Lynn McKibben—as a child, she often soothed painful muscle cramps or headaches for her fellow students. Later on, she would barter massage to friends and family in exchange for firewood, auto repair, and other necessities. Lynn finally made her dream career switch in the late 1970s, when she graduated from massage school and opened her first practice.
Years later, Lynn relocated to San Diego and opened Lynn’s Massage Therapy Del Mar—her third private practice—where she specializes in a number of massage styles. Since clients often ask her to teach them basic massage techniques, she began offering a service called Partner Massage. In this 90-minute service, Lynn demonstrates basic strokes and then lets couples practice them on each other.
Simon Graves is no stranger to upscale environments. Having worked at two Napa Valley spas since earning his massage license at Calistoga Massage Therapy School, Simon now treats clients with a range of modalities at his own studio, A-rated by the BBB. When performing his massage techniques, which include hot stone, pregnancy, Swedish, and reflexology, Simon often draws inspiration from the ancient methods of Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine and known proliferator of noteworthy knock-knock jokes.
