"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame."– Thomas Edison
My name is Dr. Rina Tinozzi, and I have been helping people stay pain free and healthy since 1996 here in Corte Madera. I believe that taking care of yourself should not only be good for you, but should feel good too! That's why, at Tinozzi Chiropractic Studio, massage is included with every chiropractic adjustment... it just makes sense! The body is a complex machine. Just like a broken bone must be properly set before it can heal, so too muscles must be reset before a spinal adjustment. Traditional chiropractic adjustments often leave the newly-aligned spine at odds with the muscles surrounding it. Comfortable with their old position, the muscles strain to return the spine to its previous curvature. It’s like falling back into an old, bad habit.
Many patients are referred to our office with chronic conditions that have not responded to other treatments. Some have tried medication and physical therapy, and were left feeling like they just "have to live with the problem." We offer patients a different approach so they may not have to live with their pain anymore.
By combining specialized muscle work and gentle chiropractic adjustments, we reset these muscles to help restore the body’s own natural balance—creating the optimal environment for the body to heal itself, without drugs or surgery. Every chiropractic adjustment includes 10 minutes of deep tissue massage (trigger point therapy) to release the patterns in the muscles that prevent chronic conditions from healing fully.
I enjoy working with athletes, treating sports injuries, as well as family chiropractic and work or auto injuries. A mother of two young boys myself, I love working with children, and especially pregnancy care.
When it comes to helping patients, chiropractic is a very special thing! It's the only specialty in medicine that is designed to move bones in order to take the pressure off surrounding tissue. This is very important if you're seeking help with a pinched nerve or other misalignment.. Just ask yourself, how might a traditional MD treat a pinched nerve? You may receive prescription drugs to block the pain, or even eventually unnecessary surgeries. There's not really another approach for them to use, and they're just trying to help. But, as they say, if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Chiropractic is like magic in these cases. We treat the structure, the underlying cause, and you're good as new with no negative side effects. It's natural, and works very quickly. I'm proud to be able to help patients in this manner.
It is part of our mission to provide a warm, healing environment that cares for the patient's spirit as well as the body. At our practice, you will feel cared for and pampered, while you are achieving a more vibrant and healthy- as well as pain free body!
Being good to yourself isn't just a catchy phrase, it's a way of life. I've been a chiropractor in Marin County, CA for over 15 years, and teaching people how to be good to themselves, in all facets of life, has been my mission. Remember, your body is your temple. Be good to it, and to yourself. Surround yourself with things that feel wholesome and good, and treat each day like the gift that it is.
Best in Health,
Dr. Rina Tinozzi
