Because you deserve to feel great!

For 22 years Dr. Tina Gottlieb, D.C. has been helping individuals and their families feel their best, and for many, find relief from all kinds of ailments, including conditions they have fought for years. Dr. Tina’s mission is to help her patients get well and stay well so they can focus on doing what they love. Her passion for upper cervical chiropractic care began when this precise chiropractic technique freed her from chronic severe migraine headaches.
After graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1996 followed by extensive post-graduate training with the International Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (IUCCA), she opened her first practice in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2002 she relocated her practice to Temecula to be closer to family.

Dr. Tina is an active member of the community ‒ a 15 year member of the Rotary Club of Temecula, and the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce, and the 2016-2017 Chairwoman of Women's Peer Connection. As part of her community service, she speaks publicly to large and small groups.

Dr. Tina's Story

"By the time I was 14, I had been suffering with chronic neck, back, and head pain for years. A new chiropractor in town rented a room from my parents, and suggested we give chiropractic care a try. After she adjusted me, I felt relief for the first time in my life. I promptly went home and announced to my parents that I was going to become a chiropractor.

Unfortunately, the relief was always temporary, and my pain and health problems became progressively worse through my first year of chiropractic college. I spent the better part of the first semester with severe headaches, neck pain, and violent migraines. Even treatment from faculty chiropractors combined with the strongest medication didn’t help. My migraines lasted for days or even weeks. On a scale of 1-10, the pain was an 8-10.

I saw my future disappearing as I realized that I might never be able to finish my degree or have a career of any kind when I couldn’t function 60-70% of the time. That’s when another student suggested I try knee chest upper cervical chiropractic care … a specific chiropractic technique that focuses on precise adjustments to the top two bones of the neck. I was very skeptical but had nothing to lose.

When I had my first upper cervical adjustment, I immediately knew it was different. By the time I got home, the migraine was gone. The relief was amazing! That night my parents called to see how I was doing. “I don’t know what they did or how it worked, but I’m going to find out!”

Over the coming months I felt better and better. Not only did the pain end, but I became stronger and healthier. Upper cervical chiropractic care was an answer to the problem, not just a means of temporary relief, and I have not had a migraine in more than 19 years. This care is my own and my family’s primary form of health care.

Providing this level of care and relief to as many people as possible has been my mission in life ever since the day that upper cervical chiropractic care gave me my life back."

“Dr. Tina’s chiropractic treatments have kept me going through hectic schedules as an attorney and elected official. I struggle with headaches – and thanks to Tina’s excellent chiropractic care I am able to successfully manage pain and stress. I highly recommend Dr. Tina to anyone wishing to improve their health and feel great!”

Mayor, City of Murrieta

“Before I began upper cervical chiropractic care treatments I had been plagued by recurring headaches, neck pain, and stiffness. I also had recurring lower back pain that actually began when I was 30 years younger after being thrown from a horse, rupturing my lower back disk.

Since my treatments with Dr. Tina began over a year ago I’ve remarkably healed. I don’t have neck pain or stiffness anymore and my back is much stronger than before.

I am convinced that chiropractic care has saved me from a lifetime of aches and pains that we all think is normal, but it isn’t. I thank my lucky stars that I found Dr. Tina and can look forward to a healthy future.

Thank you, Dr. Tina, for all you do!”


Temecula, CA

Dr. Tina has given me back my life!

I was at wit’s end with my neck pain. I’ve suffered with back and neck pain all my life and it got much worse after 30. I had been through several rounds of physical therapy, massage therapy, surgical consults, acupuncture and had been to three different chiropractors around the LA area. None of this brought me any lasting relief and one of the chiropractors actually made my neck pain worse. I was convinced that chiropractic did not work for me and assumed I’d have to learn to live with the pain.

Then I moved to Temecula and Dr. Tina’s newspaper ad caught my attention. I wasn’t aware of any chiropractors specializing in upper cervical care and since that is where I had most of my pain I decided to try, although I was skeptical.

That first day, wracked with pain, I gingerly made my way into Dr. Tina’s office holding my body and neck very stiff, one shoulder inches higher than the other.

WOW! Am I glad I made that trip! In less than two weeks of her care I was already feeling better and moving about more freely and with little pain. Suffering more than a decade of near constant pain and migraines, I had finally found relief! Hallelujah!

Besides her amazing skill, I admire Dr. Tina’s professionalism, sunny personality and eagerness to share her knowledge to improve peoples’ health. She is clearly a dedicated and talented healer who truly cares about each and every patient like they are family.

On May 10 I was doing some light gardening and I must have strained a muscle. Next morning when I woke up I could not move without searing pain. Tina is my husband’s chiro, and he suggested that I call her for help. Against my judgment, but in terrible pain, I did call her. Always before this chiropractic had never really helped me. I’ve been to dozens of appointments with chiropractors and other types of body workers in the last thirty years. And, while it all felt good, nothing actually helped me. Things are different with Tina. I hobbled slowly into her office on May 11 and of course made me feel better. But then overnight and all the next day I continued to improve. I returned for another visit on May 14 and on my way home I felt so good! I started thinking back about how our foals used to love to run on cool, windy, bright days like this. I remembered how they would run and kick out their legs. And I wanted to run myself. Hadn’t run in more than ten years. I went home and found my old running shoes and went for a run! I knew I’d pay later but it was just so great to feel good.

As it turns out, I didn’t have to pay. She totally fixed my back (in 2 visits) and I’m still running. Tina performed a miracle on my body. I’m running again today!
