Hi, my name is Chester Lin. After fixing satellites and calculating orbits for a few years as an aerospace engineer, I discovered that I loved the science of human anatomy & motion even more. And nothing brought me more fulfillment than seeing people improve and return to their life, to their family, and to doing what they love. I quit my job and began anew my studies as a physical therapist: starting with anatomy in Moorpark College, to my master's degree in physical therapy at California State University - Long Beach.

Taichi 

Taichi and its siblings, Xingyi, & Xinyi, are some of my other interests. The slow, gentle art of Taichi teaches us to carefully feel, to understand the forces & motions within our body. The partner exercises in Taichi further helps to guide each other in perfecting our body mechanics. This allowed Taichi teachers to quickly prepare their students for the rigors of Taichi's original purpose: making you strong for combat! This skill has been invaluable for me as a physical therapist and I'm grateful for all the great teachers who have taught me so much.

Chinese martial & healing arts

I have studied Chinese healing arts for many years, and have taught martial arts for over 20 years. The complementary process of understanding how people recover, grow stronger, more skillful, and also, how they are vulnerable and may be harmed, has given me a holistic insight into the process of healing.

I created Plexus to share my method: Integrated Qinetix, with people who can benefit from them. My interests and specialties include pain relief, neural development & recovery, and ideal body mechanics. 

In short, I hope to make people feel better, recover faster, and move better!

 

Tran Thai, PT, MPT

Hi I’m Tran. I first became interested in physical therapy while getting my undergraduate degree at the University of California, Berkeley. After my 5th hour pipetting chemicals into test tubes, I realized that I wanted my future career to have more human interaction and direct impact on the well being of others.

I received my Master of Physical Therapy degree in 2013 from California State University, Long Beach where I made life-long friends and learned how to be a compassionate caregiver. Since then, I have gained experience helping and healing people with both orthopedic and neurologic conditions.

My special interests include helping people with balance, dizziness, vertigo, headaches, TMJ and jaw pain. I have attended continuing education courses through USC, American Physical Therapy Association: Neurology Section, and the California Physical Therapy Association to expand my expertise for treatment of these conditions. No one should have to live with pain or discomfort, please allow me to help you live your best life!
