Passionate About Inspiring Others
Tanaka Chiropractic Missions blossomed from humble beginnings with Dr. Steven Tanaka. He has provided quality care to his patients for decades inside and out of his busy practice. For years, Dr. Tanaka has organized annual trips to Guatemala and El Salvador. When he fell ill in 2016, his colleagues who regularly participated in his trips decided to not let his selfless hard work fall to the wayside, and Tanaka Chiropractic Missions was born! The organization strives to carry on the legacy he laid the foundation for: providing quality Gonstead chiropractic care to underserved populations worldwide.

Dr. Rhee's story begins with the touch of love and passion. As a chiropractor, she works with her bare hands, touching the lives of many people in her community in Pasadena, CA. She takes great pride in her work as a Gonstead Diplomate. To have the opportunity to expand this work across internationally has truly been a blessing and a dream come true. It’s been one of the most incredible experiences in her life. Since 2006, she has had the privilege to participate in gifting this beautiful healing work through chiropractic missions.
Dr. Johnson has been practicing Gonstead chiropractic in Monterey, California for thirty years. He is a Diplomate and Fellow in the Gonstead technique and sits on the board of the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society. He was awarded Gonstead “Teacher of the Year” in 1996. He has been teaching sports injury and Gonstead technique seminars for the last twenty years and now has begun to participate in and lead chiropractic missions to Central and South America. “Dr Tanaka has been my friend and colleague for thirty years. His groundbreaking work in bringing high quality chiropractic care to Central America inspired me to help create TCM inc. with Dr. Liu and Dr. Rhee in order to continue his work and honor his legacy.”
Dr. Jennifer Liu
