Dr. Michael Venezia, DC, CSCS (aka “Dr. Mike”) has more than 14 years of clinical experience in the diagnosis and management of sports and soft tissue injuries with many years working at the highest level of professional sports. He has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education course work in pre- and post-operative care, sports injuries, strength and conditioning, soft tissue techniques, and brain health and recovery. Believing in a multi-faceted approach to healing, he has had the privilege to work with professional and amateur athletes, as well as weekend warriors and children and understands the importance of both preventative and proactive healthcare.
Dr. Mike’s specialty is myofascial/ soft tissue therapy, postural restoration and brain health. Having worked extensively with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Kings and Los Angeles Lakers as a consultant and as a physician, Dr. Mike lectures and teaches throughout the U.S. and around the world about new techniques and procedures to accelerate healing and recovery.
Working in private practice, traveling and lecturing, Dr. Mike put his health on the back-burner. Gaining weight, not sleeping, increasing his stress and eating poorly put his physical and brain health into a dangerous position. Recalibrating and redefining his motivations, Dr. Mike moved with his family from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Washington. Believing that to give oneself the gift of nature helps to awaken their own divine nature within, Dr. Mike is inspired to share his knowledge of physiology, posture and brain health, clean healthy eating, exercise and mindfulness.
