The goal at The Chiropractic Lab, says chiropractor and owner Tamar Gamliel, is to improve quality of life by treating pain naturally with adjustments, Active Release Techniques (ART), exercise, nutrition and patient education. A graduate of Southern California University of Health Science, Tamar has been practicing for six years. She is a master instructor of ART, a patented technique that treats problems resulting from over-use of muscles and soft tissues. “It took years to develop the skills required to feel different qualities of muscle texture and use the ART touch to repair the injury,” she says. A competitive athlete, Tamar ran cross country and track for UCSB, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in physiology, and she runs with local team Club Ed, based in Manhattan Beach. “I sympathize when injuries stop people from doing what they love,” Tamar says. “We have to look at all aspects of why they got hurt in the first place so it does not happen again.”

What would you like potential patients to know about you?

“I’m one of the top ranked female marathoners in southern California. I can relate to athletic injuries and the dedication it takes to maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle. I’ve experienced a number of injuries myself and used chiropractic care to treat them.”

When did you move to this area?

“I moved to the South Bay in 2002. I was attracted to the outdoor fitness aspect of the beach cities. Where else can you see people out at 6 a.m. getting their workout?!”

What’s most rewarding about your work?

“I love people’s reactions after I treat them. After a 30-minute session, they feel looser, stronger and have less pain.”
