Dr. Bria Iacini Mutch
Dr. Bria received her BS in Human Physiology from University of Oregon in 2007. Her love for human movement quickly led her into Sports Medicine Internships with Division I sports teams that include University of Oregon Track & Field, Cal Women’s Field Hockey and Lacrosse, and the Cal Football program.
After receiving her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College West, her appreciation for the power of the human body shifted her practice emphasis to Pregnancy and Pediatrics. Having met so many strong and committed moms-to-be and their families, Dr. Bria has brought the worldwide resource of BIRTHFIT to Santa Rosa to further support families throughout their preconception, pregnancy, and postpartum Motherhood Transitions. She is also certified Webster Technique practitioner through the ICPA.
Dr. Bria’s passion for the innate intelligence of the body expands beyond the clinical setting, as she also holds her Level 1 CrossFit Certificate and has been teaching indoor cycling and group fitness for over 12 years. She believes that two components are key for one’s success: BALANCE and COMMUNICATION between the mind and body.
With this forever in mind, she strives to offer this experience to those that fall into rhythm with her both in and out of the saddle. Strength, patience, self-love, and community are the building blocks she provides for those that step into the Soul Shine space. As with her coaching career, her practice philosophy has always been, “It’s not a question of CAN you, but rather a question of WILL you do what it takes to make a shift?” She looks forward to hearing you answer when she meets you in the office.
