Dr. Bjorn Bostrom

Your Santa Cruz Chiropractor


Lois
Santa Cruz, CA

My work with Bjorn Bostrom has been significant in allowing me to reverse the constraint and pain in my hips and providing overall greater flexibility, body use and lightness of being. As an 82-year-old woman, I could have accepted the inevitability of the aging process, or I could have chosen Network Chiropractic which in fact knows no age limits to well being. I’m glad I chose to work with Bjorn for the flexibility and ease I’ve recovered. Patience and consistency with this work are well rewarded with Bjorn guiding the process. For those indoctrinated with the “no pain, no gain” approach, let me just note that in this work the reverse is true: there is no pain and a great amount of gain. Simply wonderful work.

LOVED! LOVED! LOVED! the class last night. And I immediately put the information to use. I have insomnia and often when I go to bed, I start with the racing thoughts and get overwhelmed. Last night, I did the spine breathing exercise gently right before bed; then once in bed, I used breathing and the hand healing exercise over my heart to keep myself calm, serene and was able to go to sleep quickly.

“My experience in the office has been something I look forward to at each visit- the quiet- the care- the healing atmosphere- with 2 gentle people I trust their knowledge and concern and feel improvement in flexibility. I thank both Bjorn & Ariela.”

Rhiannon
Santa Cruz, CA

Since seeing Dr. Bjorn, my ability to handle major stressors has greatly improved. My spine adjusts itself on its own terms between appointments and I have been migraine free for two months straight… As an acupuncture student and future healthcare provider, I look to this office as a shining example of service to the community, as well as a role model about running a successful practice. I trust them with my physical body, my energy body and know that my spirit is renewed each time I walk out their door.


Jennifer
Watsonville, CA

Dr. Bjorn provides a safe and inviting space to aid in the healing journey. For me now, including regular visits is part of my personal health journey. I am worth investing this time and money in. During my time with this practice I have seen my body posture improve as well as ease in my body and more resilience in my back, as it learns new ways to be.


Sharon
Capitola, CA

The treatments at Network Chiropractic Wellness Center realigned my spine and relieved the pain that was radiating out from my spine and right hip.  No more pain!  Mystery solved!


Sarah
Santa Cruz, CA

For three years, I have lived with chronic chest pain and addictive tendencies. I am finally receiving the help and healing I deserve. This work is amazingly integrative and ripples out into all aspects of one’s life. If your spine is healthy and happy, so are you. So is your life. And that’s where the magic happens.


Linda
Santa Cruz, CA

I am so grateful to accept the opportunity to ride the wave of healing at Network Chiropractic Wellness Center… With Dr. Bjorn I’m experiencing ongoing and stabilizing shifts in my structure as well as stepping into new, more harmonious and productive patterns in my relationships - including with myself.


John
Santa Cruz, CA

Being a scientist and a Reiki practitioner, I appreciate Network's integration of precise and insightful analysis with subtle and fluid energetic facilitation.  While healing the spine and its central role in the body, this practice naturally leads me into a more free and authentic state of being... wellbeing.  Dr. Bjorn of NCWC is a master.  I am consistently uplifted by his presence and his work, and I have learned much from his perspective and healing facilitation.


Noah
Oakland, CA

I don't think I've ever met a doctor who cares and listens more than Dr. Bostrom.  My history of injuries present a challenging case, but I responded immediately to the care and I could not be more grateful.  Beyond the pain relief I have experienced better sleep, increased energy, and more balance in my system on a global level.


Jeff
San Jose, CA

I have been to other chiropractors in the past but no one has ever cared about me as much as Dr. Bjorn.


Cody
Santa Cruz, CA

Whether you suffer from physical pain, emotional trauma, spiritual confusion, or energetic exhaustion this office, this doctor, this receptionist is for you.  They have brought amazing, creative gifts to the surface (totally unexpected), as well as given me the courage, resilience and dialogue to face my deepest fears and overcome them with deep feelings of trust and safety... My ex-partner and I share a beautiful three year old son. I can proudly say that all three of us see Dr. B weekly.


Chani
Corralitos, CA

Upper Cervical Chiropractic blended with Network Chiropractic = the most amazing healing work I've experienced. I feel so lucky to have found this approach… I can't tell you what a relief it is to have a reliable way to heal my body… It's true what's on their A-board: They listen, they care, they get results!


Kailey
Boulder Creek, CA

I never knew the body could heal itself so easily and Dr. Bjorn gives you the tools and practices to carry healing throughout your everyday life. Overall, every time I walk into Network Chiropractic it feels like my second home. It's a safe place of ultimate emotional and physical healing.


Julia
Santa Cruz, CA

If you are looking for a gentle, real way to unlearn damaging habits, reintegrate parts of your body you thought were injured beyond repair, and receive holistic support for overall health--this is your place! One of my favorite things about Dr. Bjorn is that he is a runner, so he understand athletes. I am a lifelong dancer, athlete, power yoga instructor, and weight lifter. Never once has he told me any of these things "caused" my injuries. His focus is on what we can do now to let our bodies heal naturally.


Will
Santa Cruz, CA

As an active gymnast, I feel obliged to say the staff is wonderful, tea tastes good and the network chiropractic has kept my life functioning :).


Amrita
Santa Cruz, CA

I fell and hit my head resulting in a concussion and whiplash. After just three sessions with Bjorn my vertigo and nausea were gone. My nervous system calmed down and allowed me to access my own healing energy which is assisting in my restoration to health and vitality. Thank you.


Rachel
Santa Cruz, CA

Dr. Bjorn’s work is gentle and powerful! He has been helping me to release mental/emotional holding patterns and tension that I have stored for years. Consequently, I am breathing more freely and am feeling happier and healthier in general. Also, as the armoring around my heart i melting away, I am feeling more open and available in my relationships and more inspired and effective in my work. I am immensely grateful for this dynamic practitioner and modality!


Hamid
Santa Cruz, CA

I love the energy of Bjorn’s touch. I feel his care and commitment to supporting my wellbeing.


Sherry
Santa Cruz, CA

Since I have started treatment with Dr. Bjorn I have not had any anxiety attacks. My sleep is more solid. It took a few weeks of treatments before it dawned on me that I had not taken any sleeping pills. Thank you.


Ken
Santa Cruz, CA

Dr. Bjorn has enabled me to become familiar and friends with my nervous system so now we can cooperate together. This relationship came late in life for me so it need nurturing and gentle acceptance of my problems, which are now being solved to my great relief. Fear of being crippled is being replaced with optimism.


Karyn
Santa Cruz, CA

My experience in the office has been something I look forward to at each visit- the quiet- the care- the healing atmosphere- with 2 gentle people I trust their knowledge and concern and feel improvement in flexibility. I thank both Bjorn & Ariela.


Rich
Santa Cruz, CA

I had forgotten what it feels like to feel good.


Jeff 
Campbell, CA

I have been seeing Dr. Bjorn for a few years now. The only unfortunate thing is that I don't live in Santa Cruz, so I don't get to go nearly as much as I would like to. But that being said, as soon as I lay down on his table, I know I am in good hands. I have been to other chiropractors in the past but no one has ever cared about me as much as Dr. Bjorn. I can't recommend Dr. Bjorn enough!!!


Alec
Santa Cruz, CA

If you have a spine I strongly recommend being under care at the Network Chiropractic Wellness Center. Dr. Bostrom and Dr. Powell each offer an incredibly unique and powerful expression of an amazing modality. I have experienced an enormous amount of support and nourishment from my time spent here. As a soon to be student of Network Chiropractic I can truly say that I humbly aspire to offer the level of care present in this office. Not to mention you will be greeted by one of the most radiant people in the bright city of Santa Cruz! Sarah does such an amazing job at welcoming practice members and offering support when needed. All in all... Schedule that appointment, you won't regret it! :-)”


Noah 
Santa Cruz, CA

I have experienced Dr. Bostrom's care for about 2 years and the results have been incredible.  I don't think I've ever met a doctor who cares and listens more than Dr. Bostrom.  My history of injuries present a challenging case, but I responded immediately to the care and I could not be more grateful.  Beyond the pain relief I have experienced better sleep, increased energy, and more balance in my system on a global level.  The changes in my system continue to expand and evolve.  I am grateful to Dr. Bostrom for his care and would recommend him to anyone looking to improve the quality of their life.


Hala 
Santa Cruz, CA

I met Sarah and Dr. Bjorn at New Leaf Market. For years, I struggled with digestive pain. My posture was poor--and it took so much effort to stand up straight. Previously, I had tried changes in my diet, exercise, thinking patterns, health routine, as well as a variety of healing modalities-- like acupuncture and seeing a naturopath. Meeting the Network Wellness Chiropractic team was the catalyst to an incredible healing journey for me. Nearly a year later, I can say that I am very happy and healthy. My posture is much improved-- even effortless now and my digestion is no longer a source of great pain. I don't get sick nearly as often now either. The support that Network Chiropractic Wellness Center has gifted me with has assisted me in my healing journey greatly. The complimentary monthly classes are wonderful, and have been incredibly helpful. The office environment is so welcoming and peaceful! There is always hot tea in the waiting room and a smile behind the reception desk. Dr. Bjorn is so gifted and his gentle and intuitive touch has not only changed my spine, but my life! I have had a couple appointments with Dr. Chris as well-- he is equally as great at what he does. This type of chiropractic care is gentle and powerful, guiding the body to heal itself! I am so thankful that I made the investment to heal myself. I cannot recommend a better Chiropractic office than this!


Mike
Santa Cruz, CA

Dr Bjorn is awesome. He is an amazing Doctor and is the guy to see in Santa Cruz for achieving your health goals. I've been seeing him for the last 2-3 years and every time I leave I feel so much better. He hosts classes to teach you about foam rolling so you take charge of your own healthcare. Check him out. :)


Shantel
Aptos, CA

Network chiropractic is truly fantastic! Healing, tranquil environment that is professional and personable. Dr. Bjorn: chiropractor and owner is one of a kind. His service to your personal needs in chiropractic care is not only healing and corrective, it is humble, kind, and life adjusting. You will be so thankful you came here and to bring your family as well. I have learned many things about his chiropractic expertise in children and teens as well. His NEW location is perfectly located between Santa Cruz and Capitola!


Sara
Scotts Valley, CA

Dr. Bjorn has the incredible gift of gentle care and healing powers. He has revived my spine in ways I never imagined possible. I feel a sense of youthfulness after each visit. I have so many wonderful things I could say about Network Chiropractic. Sarah and Dr. Bjorn have not only helped me heal my spine, they have helped me through grief and trauma and best of all through pregnancy and postpartum. My little 5 day old Herschel was seen and has grown into a happy, healthy and confident 8 month old baby. I attribute many of his milestones and smiles to the health of his spine. Anyone and everyone should give Dr. Bjorn a chance. Much love from Herschel and Sara.


Jason
Santa Cruz, CA

Network Chiropractic will change your life. Yes, it will solve your back and neck issues and other physical ailments, but it will also open up new ways of thinking, new perceptions and new emotional connections. Bjorn is very attentive, committed and sincere and strives to give everyone who comes into his office the opportunity to transform their lives to reach their full potential. The new office is beautiful, spacious and conveniently located.


Constance 
Santa Cruz, CA

I have been seeing chiropractors for the past 45 years. I am a professional modern dancer (taught at UCSC for 16 years) and Yoga teacher, so adjustments have been a regular part of my lifestyle to keep my spine aligned. In January 2016, I had a mountain bike accident and ended up with a concussion. After visiting many allopathic doctors and several chiropractors, there was still no relief. Then I found Dr. Bjorn. I can say without a doubt, that his knowledge and practice of working on the cervical spine has been transformational. Before, I had "brain fog," my jaw felt as if it were constantly jammed together, and there was a pressure in my head that wouldn't go away, or that might, with a neck adjustment from another chiropractor, but it would never last. Dr. Bjorn, in three short weeks, eliminated ANY pain I had. I feel SO free in the head, jaw, and shoulder area I need to remind myself that I used to be in pain! At first I saw him three times a week. During the past year I have been seeing him twice a week, and though I am no longer in pain, I have found that I just keep feeling better and better, both physically and emotionally. This man knows what he's doing. He's a healer!

I also like the idea that I am a responsible participant for my own healing. The idea that fight or flight tension is stored in the spine as well as in other areas of the body, resonates with me, and facing up to my own traumas is an equal part of healing. Dr. Bjorn works with this, providing affirmations and encouragement for release. He is the best chiropractor I have EVER had work on me!


Josie
Ben Lomond, CA

My name is Josephine and this is my testimonial. I have lived my life with chronic back pain from a car accident 27 years ago. I was a ballerina mountain biker and that all ended. I had surgery on a ruptured disc but the damage was done. So many injections and surgeries. I broke my leg 8 years ago and now live with a titanium rod and screws in my left leg from knee to ankle. Recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I had faith that Dr. Bjorn Bergstrom and gentle chiropractic was the answer for me. Started out with a cane, overweight, walking crooked, shaking with pain and full of pain pills. My friend told me about this chiropractor and I just knew I had found the help I needed. We both didn't know if it would work because of my extensive nerve damage but the doc was willing to try and so was I. It cost less than the surgery and morphine pump the doctors said was the next step. Less financially and physically painful! After embracing Dr. Bergstrom's treatments for months and learning to stretch and breathe again, my spine started remembering. I can now walk straight without a cane. I can walk the beach, yoga, kayak and learned belly dancing. My spine has found it's energy flow again and I feel hopeful that I'll just get stronger from here. I feel pain but have tools learned from here that help me manage it. Sara is awesome and will call to remind me of my session because I had a scattered brain. I've been able to wean off the opiates I had been on and off for years. It was the right time to get off the opiates because my body was strong enough to handle it thanks to this treatment. You saved my life If you have a pinching spine, give the treatment a chance and breathe out the pain and inhale the light. You got this dancer dancing again and I Thank you Bjorn.


James
San Francisco, CA

To put it bluntly, Dr. Bjorn saved my life. A little less than six years ago, I was recovering from a long-term addiction to prescription painkillers, one that had been set-off by a back, neck and rotator cuff injury, for which the painkillers had been initially prescribed. This went on for several years, until I was taking massive doses of morphine, and I finally decided to quit, cold turkey. As one could imagine, the debilitating pain came roaring back like a freight train. Obviously, I couldn't take pain killers, and acupuncture was helping only a bit. The pain got so bad that I seriously considered suicide as an option. Just in the nick of time, the universe intervened, and I found Dr. Bjorn. He quickly got my pain under control and continued to treat life-long issues and injuries, many of which I wasn't even aware of. As the months progressed, under Dr. Bjorn's kind and skillful care, I started to feel like a human being again, and my life has only gotten better in the intervening years. There aren't words powerful enough to express my undying gratitude and affection for Dr. Bjorn. I now travel down to Santa Cruz from San Francisco to be treated by the finest medical professional I know. He will always be at the top of my list.


Halley
Santa Cruz, CA

I love Network Chiropractic!!! Their whole team is amazing, and I can't even begin to explain how much I've seen myself and my family members grow since being treated in their office. Dr. B is gentle, but effective and it was clear from my very first visit that the team not only cares for my spine but also my heath and growth as a person as well. I look forward to every visit, and I wouldn't recommend going anywhere else to get your spine checked. They're the best :)
