Dr. Edward D. Wagner, DC.
My career in the health field began when I was 21 years old, when I started working in one of the original health clubs in Southern California. This club became the first Jack La Lanne's European Health Spa. At the club, I was trained in exercise therapy and the principles of physical culture from the foremost authority, Jack La Lanne.
Soon I became a partner in the Jack La Lanne Nutrition Centers in Torrance and Rolling Hills, California. At the age of 25, I opened Wagner's Health Food Market in Venice, California and owned the store throughout my studies. Upon completing my chiropractic studies and receiving my license to practice in 1977, I decided to sell the store and concentrate my energies on treating patients and studying the advanced principles of alternative health care.
In 1979, I obtained a license in Hawaii, and in 1981 I opened Lahaina Natural Foods in Maui. The next period I spent traveling back and forth between my two practices in Malibu, California and Lahaina, Maui.
I also continued my studies, obtaining a post-graduate degree in Sports and Recreational Injuries in 1986; and I was made a Board Certified Fellow in the Academy of Clinical Applied Spinal Biomechanical Engineering in 1991. Further studies resulted in my being certified in Meridian Therapy and the Biomechanics of Scoliosis and related treatment. From 1988 to 1994 I mastered the energetic chiropractic system of TBM, and was awarded TBM Doctor of the year in 1992. I also became certified in multiple chiropractic techniques, eventually devising my own treatment system.
In 1992, I published "Dr. Edward D. Wagner's Complete Guide to Healing the Entire Body, Mind, and Spirit", which acted as a manual for my seminars and was presented to chiropractors and other health care providers. For 25 years I ran my chiropractic clinic in Malibu and presently a Holistic Clinic in Pacific Palisades for the last 12 years. During this time I developed my system of alternative health care that provides relief from various conditions, restoring health to thousands of patients worldwide.
For 37 years I have dedicated the direction of my practice to finding the deepest level of “the why” for each patient’s syndrome. Many times, these causes are found in layers, and must be released one at a time. The key is to continue this path until the root is found.
It is with experience that I have found this method to be the most effective in eradicating symptoms, but even more so, in allowing the patient to have an understanding of how their condition developed and matured before the symptoms ever appeared. With this knowledge, a lifestyle or behavioral change can take place that will prevent the return of the condition or a more serious mutation of its form that would otherwise create a new disorder or disease later.
Everyone in this office looks upon this process as a means of increasing consciousness, which in the real sense is the only path to sustainable health.
I look forward to working with you and helping you on your path of self-discovery, whether it is structural, biochemical, emotional, ancestral, and/or spiritual.
