Travis’ involvement in medicine began while volunteering as an EMT for a rural ambulance service as a teen and continued in college as he worked graveyard shifts, full-time.
Responding to the unexpected and treating those who had suddenly met the most vulnerable and weakest moments of their life was deeply humbling and impactful. These early, life-altering years defined how he witnessed trauma, injury, and the healing process. Treating and understanding how the body stores trauma remains one of his greatest areas of personal research and devotion.
He earned his doctorate from Northwestern Health Sciences University and became interested in integrative medicine. After graduate school he founded YHS Integrative Clinic, which later transformed into Healcove Clinic. Over the past 10 years he has helped create a platform for collaborative healthcare.
He has been an active leader and teacher in the San Diego community. You can find him pouring over a new book, on the sunny beaches, family in tow.

As an empath, Marya began her personal healing journey through painting, dance and choreography. Painting allowed her to transform and release all the energies she was picking up. While studying dance at UC Santa Cruz, she injured her back. Told by conventional doctors that she’d have to live with the pain, she began to seek out alternative options. This ultimately led her to both Acupuncture and Pilates. Acupuncture helped her back pain like no other therapy did. Pilates allowed her to regain strength, presence, and empowerment.
Finding Pilates and Acupuncture alone couldn’t address the emotional and energetic parts of pain, she sought out more training. She studied Somatic Movement (Art of Embodiment) and Biological Breath with Cass Phelps.
Marya holds M.S. in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Emperor’s College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Marya is also a certified Reiki practitioner, a nutrition and detox coach, as well as a teacher of somatic movement and meditation.

Robert believes that massage can play an integral role in your overall health and wellbeing, not only for acute pain and injury but also as a preventative measure. He takes a clinical approach to massage and specializes in trigger point and neuromuscular therapy (NMT) while mixing in techniques from other modalities. Robert works to relieve pain, increase mobility and give you the opportunity to take control over your health.
After years laboring in construction, his interest in massage therapy came after a work injury left him in pain and with limited mobility. After seeing many doctors and being told surgery would be his only option, he decided to see both a chiropractor and a massage therapist. Together, these health professionals were able to relieve his pain and help him to achieve a full recovery.
A certified massage therapist since 2007, Robert attended the Center for Natural Wellness and Massage Therapy, in New York.
Zarah has been practicing wellness therapies for over 12 years. She began her healing path at 16 years old, when she contracted a severe case of shingles and was bedridden for over a month.
Relief was not in sight until her mother took her to the local health food store. Here, the store’s owner advised Zarah try natural herbal salves and washes to heal bed sores. These remedies worked more gently and effectively than other options she was offered by conventional Western medicine. Instantly, Alternative Medicine sparked her interest.
Before diving deeper into wellness, she worked with hands and feet every day as a cosmetologist. But she knew there was more to both than just pretty, healthy nails.
Believing that her life’s destiny would be to help people heal themselves, Zarah continued on to become a certified reflexologist (C.R.), massage therapist (CMT) and reiki master (CRMT), with a bachelors degree in Alternative Medicine. A life-long learner, she is currently getting her doctorate in acupuncture.
