Dr. Gunnar is one of the newest members of the Discover Chiropractic team. Growing up in San Diego, CA, Dr. Gunnar became an avid lover of the Ocean and Soccer; eventually playing at the semi-professional level. Due to a severe illness, Dr. Gunnar needed to quit his passion. Disappointed he was no longer able to play contact sports, Dr. Gunnar walked into his first Yoga class. Inspired by an experience of Universal Intelligence, Dr. Gunnar decided to pursue a higher calling in holistic health. Attending Cal Poly SLO for his undergraduate studies, Dr. Gunnar completed a B.S. in Nutrition. While at Cal Poly SLO, both of Dr. Gunnar’s parents passed. Inspired to further follow his calling he decided to sell everything and live in the wilderness. It was there that Dr. Gunnar connected to the healing power of nature and began a true wellness lifestyle. Dr. Gunnar felt called to bring this experience to as many people as possible. Chiropractic became a perfect opportunity for him to express the principle of healing and completed his doctorate at Palmer West ‘23. Dr. Gunnar thrived there, eventually earning the Vigil V. Strang philosophy award for his contribution to the Chiropractic field. Dr. Gunnar now resides in Los Gatos, CA with his wife Allie and dog Bixby.
