Lisa Cockerill – Certified Massage Therapist

Lisa was trained at The National Holistic Institute in San Francisco, CA. Lisa has worked throughout the Bay Area and is mostly a homebody and stays close to Pacifica!

Having been taught different modalities, studied, and practiced for many years, her distinct techniques are the culmination of the various styles she has combined to create a unique experience for each patient. Incorporation of hot stones, which are so tranquil and therapeutic on the muscles, melts away the tension while stretching is also performed throughout to mix therapeutic and relaxation together.

After practicing massage for almost 26 years, it’s not just a job for her. Lisa has a deep-rooted Passion and Love for helping people.

Meet Kristen Taforo

IMG_4617Kristen is the Office Manager for Coastal Family Wellness and loves her job! She loves dealing with the patients and works to ensure a welcoming environment. She likes kids of all ages, and has two boys of her own.

An Introduction to Wellness

A native of Nashville, Kristen moved to Pacifica because she loved the area. She moved to the city to attend SF State. She’s no stranger to chiropractic care, having her first treatment after a car accident at a young age. In her 20’s, she experienced numbness in her hand and knew right away chiropractic could help her.

Kristen has worked as office manager at several different locations. When she saw Dr. Lisa’s ad for the position, she knew it was the perfect position for her. With a massage therapist also on staff, Coastal Family Wellness is all things wellness.

Kristen has welcomed the practice change from pain-based to a wellness platform. Her kids see Dr. Lisa for adjustment on a regular basis. Dr. Lisa’s expertise has made a real difference in their lives.

Called to Make a Difference

Kristen has seen the difference the IN FOCUS tools and strategies have in her children, who began making huge gains while under care with the practice. After personally dealing with ABA, Speech, and OT therapy a whole body wellness approach seemed the natural bridge to assist in their development.

Outside the Practice

Kristen grow up with horses and is a motorcyclist enthusiast who loves to ride through the beautiful scenery of the area.
