Dr. Brent Linse

Dr. Brent Linse

DC CCSP

My journey into becoming a chiropractor began with getting into a car accident.  My neck was really bothering me afterwards, and I went to a chiropractor for the first time.  He really made a significant change in the constant pain I was having, and I wanted to understand how and why it worked so well.  It wasn’t long before I was enrolled in Parker Chiropractic College in Dallas, Tx.

Now, over 25 years later, it’s still my passion to give the gift of healing through chiropractic to my patients.  And over the years I have continued to build upon my skills, becoming a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (C.C.S.P.), and completing hundreds of hours of continuing education with the Spine Research Institute of San Diego.  I am also a COHE specialist for Labor and Industries, and IME certified.

My years of experience enable me to not only listen and troubleshoot what the underlying health issues are for my patients, to develop the most appropriate diagnosis and personalized treatment approach, but also to manage their claims with an expertise that creates a hassle-free experience during their recovery.

I truly enjoy bringing a better understanding to my patients of what is really going on with their bodies, taking the mystery out of the medical jargon that has been thrown at them in the past, and enabling them to have the least amount of stress possible as they regain their health.

My love for seeing health grow spills over into a joy for gardening, hiking, traveling, and being outdoors.  If I’m not in my chiropractic treatment room, you’ll probably find me outside digging in the dirt or putting on a pair of hiking boots! C’est la vie!  This is the life!

After moving around as a child, Jennifer came to the PNW in 1987, and she can’t imagine being anywhere else.  She has always known that her heart is in healthcare, and that she wanted to work as support staff in that profession.  She came to Canyon Chiropractic in 2017, after 23 years in the corporate healthcare world.  She is excited to get back to her roots where she can work directly with patients once again. Her goal every day at work is to brighten each patient’s day and make their visit as seamless as possible.

Nikki has been an LMT for over 12 years, graduating from Everest College in 2011. She has been with Canyon Chiropractic since 2020, and she has a passion for helping the body heal to its best form.  She uses deep tissue, relaxation, lymphatic and cupping techniques, along with prenatal, and hot stone work, to customize your massage.

Her versatile touch can benefit each treatment goal you have, as she varies her pressure from light to medium to deep, as needed.  She describes her style as “what the body tells me it needs.” Her goal is that when you finish your massage, you will be on the road to optimum recovery.

Rochelle

Rochelle

Licensed Massage Therapist

My name is Rochelle, and I’ve been a massage therapist for 12 years. My love for massage is great but I also enjoy working with any customer service and clinical needs you may have when visiting our clinic.  So a couple days a week you may see me working at the front desk, getting you checked in for an appointment and on those same days, if you have a need for X-rays I also work alongside Dr. Linse as a Licensed professional X-ray Technician.

As a Licensed Massage Therapist, I am passionate about offering my clients effective treatment, and ideas to create ongoing change and healing with their various body issues. My years in massage therapy have taught me there is so much more than a relaxing day at the spa. That is why my approach is to customize treatment massages to your personal needs to get you back on track and feeling better.

As a bodyworker I manipulate muscle tissue with various techniques like deep tissue, Swedish, cupping and hot stones to help conquer those difficult knots, restrictions and other areas of pain. Whatever your need is, I look forward to helping you get back to you.

Sabrina Rios

Sabrina Rios

Licensed Massage Therapist

My name is Sabrina Rios. I have been a massage therapist for 11 years. The saying is so true when you love what you do, it’s not work. When I am not massaging, you will always find me spending quality time with my family.

I have a son, Tyrese (20), my sister Samantha (29) who I raised like my own, and her son Jordan (7). We always find some adventure to experience together. I am compassionate, funny, caring, happy, loyal, and loving. I would love to be a part of your healing journey. 

Cory

Cory

Licensed Massage Therapist

After working in an office environment for over 10 years, I wanted to do something to help make a difference in people’s lives. Those thoughts lead me to massage school where I began my journey in the Therapeutic Arts. 

 After graduating from Ashmead College in 2004, I worked with Chiropractic Doctors for 2 years. There I was able to hone my Deep Tissue techniques to help create structural balance for a variety of issues. I wanted to broaden my massage experience, and went to work with an Aveda Spa/Salon. My experience was enhanced by the spa atmosphere, where I began to integrate relaxation oriented massage techniques with deeper techniques. The result was great, clients were able to relax fully and get trouble areas addressed and in better condition. I am trained to work with Hot/Salt Stones, CBD oils and a variety of body treatments. I am also trained in Cupping Therapy, which when added to massage can help enhance and accelerate the healing process.

I have since become a certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Which, I feel was a needed component to help create structural balance for the client. That knowledge has served to enhance the overall result of my work. With that, I am able to give tips that help in the home care aspect for those who desire it.

I have lived in and around the Seattle area for over 30 years and practiced massage there for 15 years. I have recently relocated to Tacoma, where I am continuing my therapeutic practice and helping people feel better.
