About Dr. Rehl
After graduating from Haverford College in 1989, Dr. Rehl began his career as a middle school science teacher in North Carolina with the charter group for Teach For America. He later combined his scientific background with a burgeoning interest in massage to carve out a new hands-on career in healthcare. Dr. Rehl relocated to California where he received his certificate in massage therapy and neuromuscular reprogramming from the Institute of Conscious Bodywork in Mill Valley.
Dr. Rehl went on to practice massage therapy at The Berkeley Massage & Self-Healing Center and teach Pilates at Synergy Fitness in Albany. In 2000, Dr. Rehl met an outstanding chiropractor who had also mastered the art of Applied Kinesiology (AK). Seeing immediate and profound results from this technique, Dr. Rehl began to enthusiastically study AK in conjunction with physiology and nutrition, which led very naturally to the inclusion of Standard Process whole-food supplements in his care of his clients.
Between 2000 and 2004, Dr. Rehl attended many seminars hosted by Standard Process and the International Foundation For Health. He also studied Acupoint Integrative Testing and Nutrition Response Testing, two techniques which use muscle testing to assess underlying health imbalances and to determine highly effective nutritional protocols.
In 2004, feeling compelled to expand even further in order to allow for a higher level of diagnosis and treatment, Dr. Rehl enrolled at Life Chiropractic College West to become a doctor of chiropractic. Dr. Rehl graduated summa cum laude in 2008. While in school, he was the recipient of the Who’s Who of American Colleges and Universities Award as well as the two-time recipient of the George Goodheart Scholarship for Applied Kinesiology.
Due to his own health issues, Dr. Rehl has developed deep insights into the nature of healing and what it means to be a patient. He has compassion and warmth, an excellent bedside manner, and is honest and kind. Patients respond to Dr. Rehl because they appreciate his genuine dedication to their wellbeing, and they know that he is on their side.
