My name is Gina Staffiery and I have had the honor to be hired into the Rozenhart Family Chiropractic family. So, what is my story? After graduating from San Jose State with a BA in Advertising and Marketing, I began my career life in the family travel business. After thirteen years managing the business, I finally decided to jump out of the family nest and became the Director of Marketing for an adventure/travel company, from there I went on to be the Director of Sales for Australia’s leading tour operator.
I went back to school and earned my MBA. It was about this time I decided to follow my passion and became a professional photographer. Photography was always a love and as they say if you love what you do, you never go to work. I photograph everything, people, events, weddings, families and more. I was very lucky and got a wonderful contract as a newborn baby photographer, which came to an end last year. This is when I found Rozenhart Family Chiropractic. I have always believed and participated in Chiropractic care and I love working with people, so I felt it was a good fit and here I am. I love it here and plan on being here for a very long time.
As for the colorful part of me: My favorite color is color, I love them all! I love to travel. I have had the great opportunity to travel all around the world. My favorite places, so far are Africa, New Zealand, Fiji, Italy and Australia. My favorite cities are Boston, London, and Venice. I have yet to go to the Galapagos Islands or Brazil, but will get there soon. I believe in love. I have a warm heart and am very welcoming. I am trustworthy and funny (at least this is what my husband tells me.) I am very partial to Asian food and can never go to an Italian restaurant. None, with the exception to some in Italy, compare to mom and nanas cooking. I love to cook, paint and crochet. The beach or the mountains are my drug of choice. I love to hike, mountain bike and troll the beach for sea shells. There is so much more to me and I guess you will just have to come in for an adjustment to learn more.
I am so happy to be part of this wonderful family! I look forward to meeting you!!!

When you hear about people visiting their chiropractors, it is easy to assume that they are seeking care to relieve back pain. However, chiropractic care can relieve many more conditions. Ailments from ADHD to hypertension can be impacted by regular adjustments, and seasonal allergies are no exception.
Allergies can affect us all in very different ways, and while chiropractors cannot cure the condition, regular adjustments can make all the difference by boosting the functionality of our immune systems and reducing symptoms.
Chiropractors are trained to recognize the presence of subluxations. Subluxations of the spine are indicators of stress within the nervous system. By fixing the stressors within the spine, we are changing the effectiveness of our nervous system’s ability to communicate with the rest of the body, thus limiting or decreasing the ways in which our bodies respond to the allergies.
When we react to allergies, our first thought is to find medication for symptom relief, but with all of the harsh chemicals and additives, these pills could be bringing harmful substances into our bodies. Chiropractors can provide an all-natural method of symptom relief that is safe and acceptable for patients of all ages.
Here at Rozenhart Family Chiropractic we embrace the opportunity to help our patients feel better in the most natural way possible. If you or anyone you know is suffering from allergies and wants a safe and all-natural alternative, we encourage you to contact us today!

Human anatomy is an intricate thing. Every little nerve or cell communicates and functions within the cohesive environment we call our body. There are hundreds upon thousands of conditions that affect the human body and cause pain every day, many of which can be relieved or managed with the regular chiropractic care. Arthritis is no exception to this idea and is one of the most common conditions causing pain among individuals of all ages.
What is arthritis?
The Arthritis Foundation explains, “While often referred to as if it were a single disease, arthritis is actually an umbrella term used for a group of more than 100 medical conditions that collectively affect nearly 46 million adults and 300,000 children in America alone. While the most common form of arthritis – osteoarthritis (OA) – is most prevalent in people over 60, arthritis in its various forms can start as early as infancy. Some forms affect people in their young-adult years as they are beginning careers and families and still others start during the peak career and child-rearing years.”
Generally speaking, arthritis is an inflammation condition of the joints that causes varying levels of pain throughout the body. Various arthritis conditions affect the musculoskeletal system and usually result in pain, stiffness, lack of mobility or damage to the long-term structure of the body’s joints.
How can arthritis be remedied with chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care focuses on movements within the body and its ability to heal itself. Regular adjustments can minimize spinal and joint subluxations and can vastly improve range of motion. Additionally, chiropractic care can decrease arthritis pain and minimize fluid buildup within the joints.
Utilizing chiropractic care as a form of symptom relief or prevention in arthritis patients is an all-natural, non-invasive and highly beneficial practice. In addition to regular adjustments relieving pain, they will limit the need for over-the-counter medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen or prescription medications that are much, much worse. Eliminating the need for any of these drugs removes the risk of experiencing the various side effects that could accompany harsh chemical treatments.
Here at Rozenhart Family Chiropractic, we strive to serve you and your family’s healthcare needs in the most beneficial and non-invasive way possible. If you or anyone you know is suffering from arthritis or any other health condition for that matter, we want to hear from you. We wholeheartedly believe that we can help you feel revitalized, refreshed and ready for whatever life throws at you. Come in and see us soon, we can’t wait to help you feel your best.

Have you ever heard a preschooler ask for more asparagus? Offer enthusiastic thanks for fresh or frozen peas as a snack? Or do you know a family that fights over the last Brussels sprout or serving of beets or kale? And no, I don’t mean kale chips.
If this sounds like what happens in your home, you’ve done a great job introducing your family to eating wholesome foods as a natural part of life! (By the way, the above have all happened in ours). If this isn’t so familiar, perhaps you’ve wondered about the long-term effects of your family’s current eating habits. Maybe your toddler used to eat well, but now pitches a fit at dinner, or maybe you’re new to eating a lot of these less-popular veggies yourself. Whatever the history, you might now be contemplating what to do about the current situation or perhaps you’ve simply given up.
Well, I want to share with you some food for thought (I couldn’t resist the reference) –- okay, more like questions for thought:
Will a child who is bribed, forced, or manipulated with food-hiding into eating veggies and other things that are “good for you” freely choose to eat these foods as a teen or young adult?
Will a toddler who learns to eat until Mommy and Daddy are satisfied with the quantity, learn how to listen to its own body’s signs of fullness?
Do meal-time battles carry over into challenges with your preschooler in getting ready for school or resistance to bedtime routines?
If so, what should a parent do?
First, you’ll need to address any food aversions or difficulties that you and/or your spouse might have that either effect what’s being prepared or what the two of you are/are not eating in front of your children. It’s probably built-in biology for our survival that our youngest offspring do not want to eat foods different from what Mom and Dad are eating. (This can also hold true for older children if there is no “kid food” being prepared and the other members of the clan genuinely enjoy the family meal).
A second tip is to include children as much as possible in food selection and preparation. For example, take children to the Farmer’s Market and have them choose a new vegetable to learn about and prepare for a family meal. Younger children can be given a more limited choice, such as, “Should we have chard or kale tonight?” or, “Do you want the purple kale or the dinosaur kale?” (Didn’t know there was dinosaur kale? Ask your local farmer if they have any.) Even better than shopping at the Farmer’s Market, start a garden and involve your children in seed selection, planting, care/weeding/watering, and harvesting!
For more practical ideas and in-depth discussion on various strategies to encourage healthy eating as a family lifestyle, please register for my upcoming workshop, “Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves,” at the Los Altos Whole Foods Culinary Center, Saturday, March 30, from 10-11:30 a.m. The cost is $25/person or $40/couple. This includes complimentary on-site child-watch for pre-registered children.
Please register here: www.HealthyHappyTummy.com/events/2013/03/FOCFO
In the workshop, I’ll cover the long-term risks of some of the above mentioned meal-time parenting practices, as well as touch on guidelines for healthy food selection and how to get to the root of dinner-table challenges. Note: Registration ends this Monday, 3/25.
Hope to see you there!
(If you can’t make it, feel free to shoot me an email. I’m always happy to do some virtual trouble-shooting for a family in need).
Happy eating and warm regards,
Holistic Health Counselor
