Chiropractic Atascadero CA Justin Hart Meet Team

Patient Care Coordinator

Justin Hart

Justin was born and raised in San Luis Obispo County, and has recently started attending Cal Poly for his college education. During his high school years, he was getting very frequent migraines and sought relief through a natural path. So, he turned to his uncle, Dr. Hart, for help. Due to regular chiropractic care, he no longer experiences migraines at all. 

Justin’s success with chiropractic care motivated him to work alongside his family at Hart Family Chiropractic to help others experience the same positive results he has been enjoying for the past few years.

Chiropractic Atascadero CA Elle Meet Team

Office Manager

Elle Freeman

Elle is a transplant to the central coast after growing up in the hot central valley. Her mom took her to a chiropractor in Fresno hoping to be able to help her migraines as a child after no medical intervention was helping. In her third grade year she tested at the bottom tier of state testing due to her migraines.

After starting corrective care at her chiropractor that following year she tested in the top tier. Her migraines were almost nonexistent. That's all it took for her to continue with chiropractic care her whole life. Motivated by her love for chiropractic care when the opportunity arose to work with Hart Family Chiropractic she could not pass up the chance.

Massage Therapist

Tess Mazur

Tess was born and raised in the Bay Area. Growing up, holistic care was as frequent as a doctor visit and alternative communities were the norm. Exposed to such a wide variety of ideas, she realized the value and opportunity in integrated medicine. This passion and deep connection to bodywork has led her to her work today.

Tess's therapeutic style uses a range of methods to facilitate healing in the body.

She is able to assess what the body needs to alleviate tension and pain from stressors and overuse in daily life. With intuitive touch, stretch and breath work, as well as working closely with Dr. Hart's expertise, she caters each massage to the individual's needs.

Deeply passionate about others' wellness, she studied locally at the California Holistic Institute in San Luis Obispo. She is grateful and excited to continue her practice, with Dr. Hart and particularly with members in her community of Atascadero.
