Kirsten Hill, DC, Chiropractor/Wellness Center Director
Dr. Kirsten Hill, DC founded Dance With Life Chiropractic Family Wellness Center in 2004 with the goal of helping people rediscover health, well-being and a zest for life. Dr. Hill’s path as a Doctor of Chiropractic began in 1990, when she discovered and fell in love with the chiropractic message that the body is self-healing, while working in a chiropractor’s office in Dallas, Texas. Today, Dr. Hill dedicates her 20 years of professional health experience to improve the lives of business professionals, students, seniors and families. Dr. Hill has advanced training in resolving pain and injuries, pediatric chiropractic, pre-natal care and wellness practices. Her gentle approach to hands-on care facilitates deep transformation in the lives of people of all ages.
Dr. Hill has dedicated her life to chiropractic and to serving the well-being of the residents of the Sunset District and the city of San Francisco. A leader in the Professional Alliance Chapter of Business Networking International, Dr. Hill also contributes to her community by offering wellness talks here at the center, participating in various local events like the Farmer’s Market, and through membership in groups such as the Inner Sunset Merchants Association.
With a B.A. from the University of Texas and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life Chiropractic College West, Dr. Hill continues to enrich her knowledge of health. In her free time, Dr. Hill adores spending time with her daughter Yasmine, walking in Golden Gate Park, traveling and dancing.
Even before receiving his B.A. degree in kinesiology (with an emphasis in pre-physical therapy) from S.F. State University, Enrico had become interested in massage as an effective healing modality to alleviate pain and stress. After studying massage techniques for several years, he began his practice as a professional massage therapist in 1998. Enrico’s comprehensive massage training (1000+ hours) and experience range from clinical work with doctors in a hospital setting to exotic spa treatments to managing massage teams at major sports events. Enrico is currently on the staff of McKinnon Body Therapy Center, where he teaches classes in Sports Massage and Deep Tissue Massage.
Through his training at the San Francisco School of Massage and his 20 years of experience, Enrico has developed a massage style he calls “The Ruggeri Method,” which incorporates guided meditation with breathwork, to assist the client in reaching a deep state of relaxation. This approach has proven to be a powerful modality for reducing muscle and joint pain, stress and tension, while helping clients reclaim their energy, stamina and vitality.
DWLC is thrilled to have a massage therapist of Enrico’s high caliber on our team.
After 20 years in the legal field, Sandra switched careers to focus on her passion for helping the vulnerable. Working as a caregiver for the elderly, she saw clearly in their daily lives the need for connection and touch. In massaging their hands and feet, she understood the necessity for human care. So began her journey through massage. Sandra recently graduated with honors from an 800-hour Core Massage Program from the National Holistic Institute and is currently enrolled in the Advanced Neuromuscular Massage Program to further her knowledge in kinesiology, trigger point, and neuromuscular therapy.
A strong believer of self-care through natural remedies, she is the founder of Restore Body Care, LLC, a line of organic body care and pain relief products.
Sandra exudes passion for health and wellbeing, performing a range of massage modalities, including deep tissue, orthopedic, prenatal, and aromatherapy. Her compassion and dedication to a superb quality of touch result in profound healing. We are excited for you to experience Sandra’s excellent care!
Jalva Barranco, CHT, Clinical Hypnotherapist
A native of Brazil, Jalva loved to assist people in her community from an early age. As a teenager, she volunteered for an association that helped people in need. Later, she moved to France, where she obtained a Degree in Psychology at the University of Paris VIII, after giving birth to her two children. After moving to San Francisco, Jalva had the amazing opportunity to train in the field of hypnotherapy with Randall Churchill at the Hypnotherapy Training Institute. A passionate and professional hypnotherapist, Jalva’s greatest satisfaction comes from helping people in need, swiftly and efficiently.
Hypnotherapy can help in various areas, such as stress, anxiety, depression, fears, phobias, addictions, bad habits, chronic pain management, relationships, motivation, etc. Essentially, there are no limits to hypnosis! In her practice, Jalva guides her clients into a relaxed state in which they are receptive, combining several effective methods such as classic hypnosis, intuitive hypnosis, regression hypnosis, and spiritual hypnosis, taking into account the client’s needs and preferences.
