With more than two decades of professional experience in the healing and movement arts, Dr. Robles brings a broad base of knowledge to her role as a health care practitioner. During her career she has provided chiropractic services to a wide variety of pediatric and adult patients, ranging from manual laborers in the Peruvian highlands and farmers in rural Central America to software engineers in Silicon Valley and weekend warriors in Portland, Oregon.
Her main focus is on correcting spinal misalignments that can cause imbalances in the body and nervous system and create a lowered tolerance for healing, recovery and overall wellness. Her extensive professional experience has taught her that treating back and spine problems requires a holistic approach. That is why, in addition to her specialty in various chiropractic techniques, she assists clients with preventative and wellness care, nutritional advice, posture and ergonomic correction, exercises for core strength and overall fitness and weight management. Much of her current practice is informed by her previous experience as a personal trainer and wellness coach, where she pioneered nutritional as well as exercise techniques to promote her clients’ whole health.
The holistic approach also influences her role as an educator to the next generation of healthcare practitioners, having served as an instructor of anatomy and spino-muscular biomechanics at Life Chiropractic College in West Hayward, California. She remains well versed in the current scientific literature regarding evidence-based chiropractic techniques so she can ground both her teaching and clinical practice in the latest clinically-proven procedures.
She also takes inspiration from her lived experience. Her time as a former division I collegiate athlete, current amateur triathlete and trained yoga instructor informs her approach to injury and recovery. Her journey of recovering from her own set of injuries has given her a personal perspective on the healing process, compassion for her patients and the desire to educate people about how to achieve better health through the gentle touch of chiropractic care and healthy habits.
