Jacob Martin, DC

After graduating from Duke University, Dr. Jacob attended Palmer College of Chiropractic – West Campus in San Jose, California, graduating as a chiropractor in 2010. He elected to learn nine specialized adjusting techniques and advanced clinical nutritional training, providing him with specialized knowledge to better serve his patients. Dr. Jacob was the recipient of the prestigious Virgil V. Strang Philosophy Award, the highest award given at graduation at Palmer College, awarded to one graduating student per class, and only after a rigorous process to only one graduating doctor per class. From 2011 to 2013 served as the primary clinician in the highest volume chiropractic practice in Ventura County, California, and to date has delivered nearly 70,000 chiropractic adjustments. He is certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in the Webster Technique for pregnant women, and he is the founder and lead clinician of Inner Strength Chiropractic, a successful vitalistic chiropractic office in Santa Barbara specializing in prenatal and family care.

As a chiropractor, Dr. Jacob teaches that the nervous system is the mind’s connection to the world. When there is interference in the nervous system due to a spinal subluxation, integration within the body is decreased. Specific chiropractic adjustments remove nervous system interference and allow for optimal communication between the brain and body. This allows for the highest life expression and health for the body, mind, and spirit.

Workshops & Presentations

  • Anatomy Trains for Your Yoga Practice

    90 min | Movement Lab

    This class is about the highly-esteemed concept of Anatomy Trains - seven sets of myofascial tissue chains that govern the entire body's mobility, stability, function & structural integrity. We will present the concept of anatomy trains, describe and learn the trains themselves, and apply them to posture & functional movement, with an emphasis on yoga. This course can serve as somewhat of a master class for yoga teachers or advanced yogis looking to deepen their practice or instruction, but will be presented with the beginner in mind.

  • Mind, Body, Spirit, Self; the Mundane Conduit of the Soul

    60 min | Altar of Spirit

    This class is about the role of the nervous system, especially the central nervous system, as the mundane conduit of the spirit, the connection from physical to metaphysical, and the source from which our experiences emanate. Its anatomy & physiology will be discussed, with brief diversions on lucid dreaming, meditation, and psychadelics and other mind altering techniques. Included will be passages from DD & BJ Palmer, Henry David Thoreau, Virginia Woolf, Eckhart Tolle, and Nobel Prize winner Roger Sperry. The course will culminate in physiology-based strategies for raising consciousness and connecting Mind, Body, Spirit, and Self.
