Christina Hennings

Christina was born and raised in Southern California and graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a BA in Psychology and Literature. Before receiving regular chiropractic care, she suffered from constant migraines, having to miss out on school, work, and family/friend functions. She spent years closing herself off in dark places, taking ibuprofren or other over the counter headache medicines, and even a stroke medication prescribed to her by doctors in order to dull the pain or lessen the migraines. 


In college she chose to take herself off the stroke and OTC medications. She chose to ride out her migraines, which took a toll on her mind and body. Still, she knew something was missing with her health. During the summer of 2019, Dr. Tao gave her her first life-changing adjustment, and she became aware of how much of a mess her nervous system was and how everything in the body is connected. Regular chiropractic care became a norm for Christina. The more she learned about it, the more she loved it. Four years later, Christina can proudly say that migraines no longer control or define her life. Chiropractic care changed her life, so it was an easy decision to leave her previous job in October of 2022 to work alongside Dr. Tao to support his vision of creating a healthy and thriving community. 

When not at the office, Christina loves spending time with her dog, Charlie, and her 2 cats, Peter and Boots. You can also find her spending time with her family and friends. Christina enjoys reading, writing, watching movies, or bugging Dr. Tao while he games.
