Our Bay Area Chiropractic care aims to help you resolve your pain and discomfort while maintaining your optimal health naturally. While many clients in the Bay Area seek chiropractic care after an injury or acute condition, a chiropractor can do so much more than simply treat or correct a condition. Chiropractic is a natural, non-invasive and drug free modality designed to help you access and maintain your ideal level of health and vitality. Chiropractic gets to the root cause of the issue, rather than merely covering pain or dysfunction or simply treating the symptoms. As a natural, gentle and drug free mode of treatment, chiropractic care is suitable for all ages and every member of the family, from babies to grandparents!
How Chiropractic Care Works
The focus of chiropractic care is balancing the optimum function of the body with its structure. While many people are familiar with the spinal manipulations or adjustments that chiropractors perform, chiropractic care employs a number of different techniques with the goal of correcting alignment issues, relieving pain, boosting health and performance and facilitating healing.
Ideal alignment and a healthy spine is the core of good health. The nerve system for the entire body flows out from the spine and neck, to convey messages back and forth throughout the body. When the spine or joints become misaligned poor function and pain can occur due to the nerves being pinched, and the muscles seizing. Empowered Chiropractic’s care and treatments focus on relieving misalignment of the spine and other joints in order to relieve pain, ease movement and optimize health for the whole body.
Your Unique Chiropractic Treatment
The chiropractic care provided at Empowered Chiropractic is uniquely tailored to your needs to address your specific issue. The techniques and approach chosen for you by the chiropractor is formulated based on a thorough initial consultation and review of your medical history, conditions, concerns and health goals.
Our chiropractic treatment is effective for optimizing general health, as well as for improving a number of different conditions including –
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Leg pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- And more…
The chiropractic treatment at Empowered Chiropractic goes beyond simply aligning your spine. Our Doctors of Chiropractic will teach you specific exercises to strengthen your core muscles and ongoing follow-up to maintain your ideal functionality and health.
Providing the highest quality Chiropractic Care throughout the Bay Area including Danville, Alamo, San Ramon, Blackhawk, Walnut Creek, Dublin and Pleasanton, Empowered Chiropractic helps bring your body to an optimal healthy balance with transformative natural treatments.
Myofascial therapy focuses on myofascial release as a way to effectively and naturally relieve myofascial pain, sensitivity and tightness. Myofascial therapy can help to relieve loss of flexibility and function due to an injury, trauma or chronic condition. When damage or trauma occurs to muscle or other soft tissues, they can seize up becoming tight, painful and sensitive. Healing after an injury can also produce scar tissue which is tighter and less functional than normal tissue. Myofascial pain often originates from specific points in the muscles and soft tissues called ‘trigger points’.
Myofascial therapy helps to relieve tightness, sensitivity and pain by releasing and easing tension in the trigger points. Myofascial therapy can be offered as a standalone massage treatment, or in conjunction with chiropractic care or other wellness modalities. In myofascial therapy the practitioner massages and feels the muscle and soft tissue for areas of contraction and tightness. These areas will then be massaged and stretched, and the nearby trigger points will be worked on to release pressure and tension. This process is then repeated until the practitioner can feel that the tension and tightness is fully released.
Myofascial release is particularly beneficial because it works on the entire network of muscles in the body, to release specific areas of pain and tightness while promoting whole body health. Myofascial therapy helps to both release tight and contracted muscles and fascia, while stimulating blood flow, loosening and relaxing muscles, and increasing mobility and flexibility.
Just a few of the conditions that clients find Myofascial Therapy effective for include –
- Back and neck pain
- Ongoing muscle pain
- Temporo-Mandibular Joint disorder
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Migraine headaches
- Muscle spasm
- Post-injury recovery
- Sports injury
At Empowered Chiropractic, our dedicated Myofascial Release therapists can provide a focused myofascial therapy massage to really work through your muscle and soft tissue tension, or you can receive a myofascial release treatment at the same time as your chiropractic alignment. Combining the benefits of these two wellness modalities helps to promote faster healing and recovery with optimized function and range of movement. Focused on serving Danville, Alamo, San Ramon, Blackhawk, Walnut Creek, Dublin and Pleasanton, Empowered Chiropractic makes regenerative myofascial therapy available to clients across the wider Bay Area.

ARP Wave Therapy
ARP Wave Therapy is a revolutionary new treatment modality we are excited to offer at Empowered Chiropractic in the Bay Area. ARP Wave Therapy is an abbreviation of Accelerated Recovery Performance Wave Neuro Therapy. One of the root causes of joint problems, pain and injury is the inability of the muscles to absorb force. When the muscles are not trained to absorb force in the way they should, other body tissues end up absorbing force, even though they are weaker. This can result in acute injuries as well as chronic issues and pain.
The revolutionary technology of ARP therapy works by finding the source of the neurological problem, and training muscles to stay more relaxed throughout activity and rest. Relaxed muscles are better able to accept force in a healthy way, preventing injury and pain. Empowered Chiropractic offers ARP Wave Therapy in the Bay Area as an all-natural, drug-free treatment that can be used along with chiropractic care and other wellness treatments to promote long-lasting relief.
Lightforce Laser Therapy
Lightforce Laser Therapy is a new treatment technology designed to produce exceptional results in difficult cases of chronic pain and injury. Laser therapy uses a process called Photo Bio Modulation, to stimulate cell generation in damaged tissue, and accelerate healing. Laser Therapy is an FDA approved modality for effectively reducing inflammation and reducing pain.
Empowered Chiropractic offers Bay Area Lightforce Laser Therapy as a powerful yet gentle methodology designed to deeply penetrate to the level of injury, providing the ideal dose of laser therapy for healing and recovery. Lightforce Laser Therapy is safe, painless and fast, and produces clearly noticeable results in just 3-5 sessions. Being natural and non-invasive, laser therapy can also be used in conjunction with other natural treatments like chiropractic care for outstanding results.
Multiradiance Laser Therapy
Multiradiance Laser Therapy is another form of laser therapy that uses pulsed laser as a safe option to reduce short term and long term pain. Rather than undergoing risky surgery or taking NSAID or painkiller medications with harmful side effects, Multiradiance Laser Therapy provides an all-natural, drug free pain relief option that actually stimulates your body’s innate healing process.
Multiradiance Laser Therapy also penetrates deep into the injured tissue to target the specific treatment area and accelerate healing. Multiradiance Laser Therapy reduces inflammation and optimizes nerve stimulation to naturally reduce pain. Laser Therapy also helps to stimulate cell renewal and regeneration, for faster healing and less recovery time.
Used in conjunction with our expert chiropractic services in the Bay Area, Multiradiance Laser Therapy is the ideal method to effectively reduce pain while providing faster recovery and healing.
Ultrasound therapy has long been used by health professionals to relieve inflammatory pain in the tendons, muscles and joints following an injury. This natural, non-invasive and drug free treatment helps to achieve outstanding results for pain relief and healing by delivering low-frequency acoustic waves to stimulate anti-inflammatory cell activity and tissue healing. Research has shown these effects are most clearly seen with daily treatment. However, receiving daily ultrasound treatment from a doctor or chiropractor has been impractical – until now.
SAM is a mobile, wearable and rechargeable therapeutic ultrasound device designed to provide multi-hour, continuous healing therapy. SAM is an efficient and economical way to receive ongoing ultrasound therapy when and where you need it. For up to 4 hours per session, sore muscles, tendons and ligaments will be fully saturated with SAM’s gentle, restorative ultrasound energy, bringing blood flow and essential nutrients to the affected area. Powered by a rechargeable battery and easy to wear and use while on the go, SAM allows you to stay in control of your own healing and recovery.
SAM is currently available only through a prescription from a qualified medical provider, like our chiropractor Dr. Mahsa. So contact Empowered Chiropractic today to learn more about how SAM or any of our advanced treatment modalities can help you manage pain and recover faster with holistic treatments.
Offering these cutting edge technologies throughout the Bay Area, including Danville, Alamo, San Ramon, Blackhawk, Walnut Creek, Dublin and Pleasanton, Empowered Chiropractic brings you effective, natural pain relief to improve and transform your life.
Neuropathy is sometimes called peripheral neuropathy. What are peripheral nerves, they are all the nerves that come out of your spinal cord, except for the brain that go to the different parts of your body. Neuropathy is not a singular health issue. Damage to the peripheral nerves and the related symptoms are what neuropathy falls under and leads to numerous health conditions. Each person is different so not everyone will experience all of the symptoms. Some of these symptoms include:
- Diabetic nerve pain
- Sharp, electric-like pain
- Burning or tingling
- Muscle weakness
- Difficulty sleeping from leg or foot discomfort
- Sensitivity to touch
- Pain when walking
At our Danville office, Empowered Chiropractic has a detailed blueprint that has proven successful. This treatment plan does this through a four steps process:
- Increasing blood supply to your nerves.
- Repairing and re-educating your nerves.
- Increasing the blood flow in your feet or hands.
- Increasing your balance and mobility.
If you want to return to great health and stop having neuropathy control your life, contact Empowered Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation.
A healthy weight promotes greater wellbeing, better mobility and function, and an improved self-image.

With clients in Danville, Alamo, San Ramon, Blackhawk, Walnut Creek, Dublin and Pleasanton, Empowered Chiropractic have provided hundreds of weight loss success stories. Our method includes cleansing the body of toxins, optimizing nutrition intake and improving activity levels to promote healthy weight loss and healthy weight maintenance for life.

Among the weight loss services offered by Empowered Chiropractic is nutritional counselling, custom fitness programs, our body cleanse detox program and i-Lipo Laser treatment.
Empowered Chiropractic has assisted many Bay Area residents with effective and lasting weight loss. But weight loss is not easy, and many people struggle to lose weight and keep it off. This could be due to a number of factors such as toxin level in the body, sluggish metabolism, genetics, health conditions or medication. Many of those who struggle to lose weight look at more invasive measures to achieve weight loss, such as liposuction. However, liposuction can be severely damaging to the body and cause scarring, while also not helping to prepare you for lasting weight loss.
Fortunately, doctors and scientists have formulated a safer, more advanced way to internally reduce fatty tissue, while avoiding invasive surgery. The Zerona 6 is a laser treatment which targets excess fat with none of the effects that normally prevent individuals from doing their daily activities. This laser provides slimming and body contouring with a non-invasive and simple procedure. Empowered Chiropractic begins by performing an initial body fat analysis to plan the Zerona 6 treatment, then each 20-minute treatment is conducted within our Wellness Center. With no side effects, scarring or down time, Zerona 6 can promote substantial fat loss per session, and in combination with healthy lifestyle changes such as improved diet and increased exercise, the weight stays off, and you feel happier and healthier for life.
Eating better isn’t just about losing weight – it’s about achieving whole body health, vitality and wellbeing. Clients who often feel tired, run down and low in energy may need more than just pain management and rehabilitation through our Danville chiropractic and massage treatments.
Optimal nutrition is essential to bring full vitality to your body with the ideal balance of nutrients, vitamins and minerals to support a healthy, active life. Empowered Chiropractic offers expert nutritional counselling to identify the nutritional gaps in your current intake, while recommending a full program for holistic nutritional health.
Nutritional counselling clients are inspired to begin behavior change from beginning with the Empowered Body Detox. This 21-day detoxification program allows clients to purify the body of toxins and chemicals and recalibrate poor eating habits. This helps prepare the body and mind for a healthier approach to eating and lifestyle overall, helping to promote long-lasting changes.
A balanced food intake focusing on natural whole foods while avoiding processed foods is the cornerstone of healthy weight loss. Empowered Chiropractic combines this with a custom-tailored detox period, an exercise program, and Zerona 6 laser therapy as needed to produce truly outstanding, natural weight loss results for our clients.
Chiropractic for Pregnancy
Many expectant mothers experience aches and pains that are normal with pregnancy, leading them to wonder if chiropractic care could be a safe solution. The great news is yes! Chiropractic pregnancy care is a safe, effective and drug-free way to relieve pain, tension and muscle aches and pains that are all too common with pregnancy.
When undergoing chiropractic treatment while pregnant, the key is to find a highly skilled chiropractor who is experienced with pregnancy chiropractic care.
Dr. Mahsa of Empowered Chiropractic Danville has provided chiropractic care for pregnant women from across the Bay Area, including Alamo, San Ramon, Blackhawk, Walnut Creek, Dublin, and Pleasanton.
During pregnancy, it’s normal for the body to gain weight, the joints to loosen, and posture to change. However, these natural effects can cause pain and discomfort, spine misalignment, pelvic and vertebral pressure and indigestion, nausea, and reflux. Chiropractic care is the ideal solution for relief of muscular aches and pains during pregnancy because it is all natural, effective and drug-free. Chiropractic care won’t harm your little one while they are still growing and developing inside you.
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) recommends that women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to recalibrate the pelvic balance and optimize room for the baby. Chiropractic care improves mother’s comfort, as well as helping the baby achieve the right position for a smooth, natural birth.
Chiropractic pregnancy care has been shown to be effective for relieving a number of common complaints during or pre-pregnancy, including –
- Back Pain
- Pelvic Pain
- Neck Pain
- Hip Pain
- Overarched back curve
- Postural changes
- Improving chances of conception
- Preventing breech and Caesarean delivery
- Reducing labor and delivery time
While expectant mothers are often cautious about approaching chiropractic treatment during pregnancy, after just the first session or two, the overwhelming results and benefits are clear. Many mothers call pregnancy chiropractic care a ‘blessing’ and that they ‘couldn’t believe the results’ from this safe and effective treatment.
To find out more about the amazing benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy and to book your first session, call Empowered Chiropractic today for skilled and expert pregnancy care.
Kid’s Chiropractic Care
Just like adults need adjustments to stay healthy and vital, little bodies can benefit from the many advantages of kids chiropractic care too.
One of the first questions that can arise for parents is whether chiropractic care is safe for children. Numerous studies, research and decades of practice has shown that chiropractic care is both safe and highly beneficial for children from birth, all the way into adulthood.
With an experienced and gentle touch, even newborns can benefit from chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments for babies, infants and children are different to the adjustments performed on adults.
Children’s chiropractic treatment begins with a thorough analysis of the spine and cranial position. Where abnormalities are detected, very gentle adjustments that work with the body are applied, without manipulation. For babies and infants, the adjustments are so gentle and natural, it may not seem like a ‘typical’ adjustment at all. That’s because skilled Doctors of Chiropractic know how to apply the right adjustments for safe treatment of children of all ages.
When seeking chiropractic care for kids, you want to choose an experienced and knowledgeable Doctor of Chiropractic. The team of chiropractors at Empowered Chiropractic skilled practitioners, experienced in providing children’s chiropractic care in Danville, Alamo, San Ramon, Blackhawk, Walnut Creek, Dublin, Pleasanton and the wider Bay Area.
Chiropractic care for kids is so popular due to incredible benefits it offers for children of all ages, as well as their parents!
Kid’s chiropractic care can provide benefit for –
- Birth trauma
- Sports injuries
- Neck Pain
- Upper Respiratory Tract Infection
- Colic and Digestive Issues
- Behavioral Issues
- Improved Sleep
- Stronger Immune Systems
- Growing Pains
- Physical growth and development
One of the aspects parents love most about kids chiropractic care is that it provides a 100% natural, safe and drug-free way to provide treatment for common health issues affecting children. Chiropractic care helps children learn from a young age about a holistic and integrated approach to health.
Put your children’s health in the best hands with the skilled and experienced Doctors of Chiropractic at Empowered Chiropractic in Danville.
Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health. Through Nutrition Response Testing we do not diagnose or treat disease, but we determine your healing process through two parts: the analysis and the personalized health improvement with supplementation.
The analysis is done through testing the body’s autonomic nervous system. NRT analyzes different areas on the surface of the body that relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body. This information is derived from the part of the nervous system whose job it is to regulate the functions of each and every organ.
Each area that gives a response represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on the body. By testing these organs/areas, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that has proven to be extremely accurate clinically and that helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need.
Instead of connecting electrodes to the areas being tested, as in an EKG, the NRT practitioner contacts these areas with her own hand. With the other hand, she will test the muscle of your extended arm. If the organ/area being contacted is “active” the nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm, and the arm will weaken and drop. This drop signifies underlying stress or dysfunction, which can be affecting your health.
Our next step is to test specific, proven, highest-possible quality nutritional formulas against those weak areas to find which ones bring the organ/areas back to strength.
When we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and have worked out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have identified the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance. By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health. We make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, or in powdered form to “supplement” your current diet. That’s why they are called “food supplements.” Depending on your individual situation, we might also require that you make some specific changes in your diet and eating habits, and in your routines, in order to bring about the best possible results.
In medicine, the medical doctor makes a diagnosis and then uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptom, or to surgically remove the “offending” organ or malfunctioning part. In NRT we use designed clinical nutrition to correct the cause of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to correct itself.
