T with DrScott

We met over 25 years ago when DrScott had his chiropractic office and Tina co-owned an automotive smog and repair shop. We had our own lives and businesses. Life changes brought us together in 2013.

While doing some events, we realized that when working together on the same client, a muscle/tendon/ligament would release quicker. It was profound for the client as well. This epiphany evolved into the magic of Tandem Therapeutic Bodywork, 4 Hands 1 Body.

Scott is a walking encyclodeia. Tina is an intuitive healer.

We are also medical anarchists. We are not anti-medical.  We are      anti-lazy.  Do Something! Touch the patient/client!

What we’ve found is that people are not getting well in a traditional insurance-based medical model.  It is our goal to help as many people as we can on their Journey to Wellness.

DrScott ,DC has a diverse background in health and wellness.

Biology major, EMT Training/ER room, Lifeguard for the state of California – 5 yrs along the shores of North County San Diego, where he continues to save lives.

DrScott had chiropractic offices for over 20 years in Inland North County, San Diego. He has done trade shows nationwide, promoting an FDA approved electro-muscle stimulation device, as well as a back pain decompression device.

He is a bio-mechanical expert and back pain specialist – a solid foundation for performing expert court testimony for personal injury and worker’s compensation cases for over 15 years.

As a Champion swimmer, water polo player, and surfer, water has always been his natural element.

In his best physical shape at age 24, a driver side-swiped Scott’s car, relocating a telephone pole, sending him partially through the windshield with his car seat strapped to his body, bolts torn from the floorboard, and the steering wheel crushing his ribs.

Guardian Angels were present. No one knows how he got out of that car or how he was found sitting outside of it.

It had been his dream to complete his training for Air & Sea Rescue for the Coast Guard. The laws of physics changed his course of action.

This story went largely untold for decades. Tina was a long time patient in his office since 1991 and did not hear his story until 2013.   His comment: It’s not about me.

With Tina’s encouragement, it is now a regular part of the client therapeutic process because Dr Scott’s story lets people know that HE knows what it is like to do intensive rehab after trauma. He saw 22 practitioners on his Journey.

A father of four, he has a nurturing, energetic spirit. His desire is to educate clients/practitioners and mentor those who want to learn “old school” teachings that work”.

Tina attended school for massage therapy in the mid- 1980’s, although she could be found massaging the shoulders of day camp counselors as early as 11 years old.

She walked the isle for a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She has done Medical Assistant training in order to perform insurance paramedical exams, including phlebotomy and portable EKG.

She co-owned a smog and general repair shop for over 16 years in North County San Diego.

Fertility was her friend: 4 boys in 2 1/2 years (including twins) and the fifth son making 5 sons in 5 years. She is proud to be a Mom.

Some devastating life events include a 6 year divorce. She was determined to thrive, not only survive. Stress and overwhelm tried to prevail but she was determined to remain positive, and to never stop learning and helping others.

She offers her knowledge and expertise with gratitude for her guides and healers, including DrScott, who kept her going during tough times.

She is a writer, a singer and a lover of nature and animals. She has been called a gentle, passionate soul. She is Native American from Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe in Nevada.

Our clients

Our clients

Equal partners

Our clients come in all shapes and sizes, from all walks of life.

We see client cases that would never be seen in a spa setting. Our mobile work allows people to get well in the comfort of their own homes. People let us get up close and personal because inherently they know that we know what it takes to navigate rehab and get well.

The majority of our client base is through word-of-mouth referrals. We always welcome new clients. Our long term goals are to expand our community online and to create client/practitioner education and wellness retreats.


A Digital Era

Although we promote oral tradition and hands-on, therapeutic touch, our goal is to create an online community to reach more people in need.      Education Inspiration Collaboration

Creating a safe place where clients and practitioners can learn together.

Thinking outside the bod

For over 25 years Dr Scott loved his solo work, although at times it was lonely.  Finding our Tandem work was a surprise for both of us. Not many people do what we do. Tandem massage in a spa setting is usually about relaxation or couples massage. For us,the results of working on two ends of a muscle/tendon/ligament are profound. Two practitioners are able to positively confuse a clients body into releasing.  Sneaky, but effective.

Problem Solvers

Sometimes we must toot our own horn. What we do works. Our approach is   Pro-Active

         If it’s not broken,        and you wait for referrals, or MRI’s to start the process of rehab you miss the window of time to reduce swelling and prolong the process of healing/recovery. 

Best of both worlds

We balance a medical background with a natural approach. Anatomy Physiology Chemistry Neurology Biology Nutrition…one size does not fit all.
We are about MOVEMENT.  Anything more than ZERO is a positive number. Blood in, blood out, lymphatic drainage.
Intuition + impeccable Interview/Assessment skills = MAGIC

There is much to appreciate about DrScott

He is smart. He is curious. He will not let a problem or inquiry go unsolved without detailed questioning and research. Whether it is a passerby or a paying client, he spends time with people to explain, illustrate, educate and really listen.

DrScott is a rare and exceptional practitioner. The world needs more people like him. Tina wants to ensure that his Oral Traditions are passed on for those who have a seeking spirit and a desire to learn the ART of Healing.

It brings joy to watch the faces of clients when DrScott’s assessments bring an epiphany, a new sense of understanding, and hope.

Our work


Tina is proud to work side by side with DrScott as part of our Tandem Therapeutic team. It is her desire to capture his unique perspectives and expansive knowledge on paper, on digital recorder, video, conference, seminar and in our BLOG
