Who We Are

 

Dr. Jason Chang

PT, DPT

Jason was born in New York, raised in Taiwan until the age of 9, then he moved to California where he eventually earned a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Biology at the University of California, Davis. Jason continued his education after college, receiving his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Samuel Merritt University in Oakland, California in 2011. He has worked in various orthopedic outpatient clinics in California, including a 6-month internship at Stanford Medical Center, where he worked with industry-leading Physicians and Physical Therapists specializing in Orthopedic and Sports medicine. Although Jason enjoys working with all types of patients, he has developed a special interest in working with high level athletes seeking optimal performance.
Having spent nine years of his childhood in Taiwan, Jason has always been exposed to, and developed interest in Chinese healing practices, such as Gua Sha, Cupping, Moxabustion, as well as Qi Gong. After moving to Hawaii in 2013, he continued to practice in multiple outpatient orthopedic settings, where he treated patients with various conditions ranging from headaches to ankle sprains. Jason soon realized that he can provide a unique service. By combining his modern Western Physical Therapy training, along with the knowledge and experience of traditional Eastern healing techniques, Jason is able to provide a superior service compared to traditional Physical Therapy alone.
Jason is an active member of American Physical Therapy Association, as well as the orthopedic and sports medicine specialty sections. He is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
During his free time, Jason enjoys working out, hiking, surfing, and spending time with his fiancée. He also speaks mandarin fluently.

Dr. Fion Li

PT, DPT

Hi, my name is Fion, I’m from Taiwan. I finished my entry level PT school in Taiwan and  received  Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Loma Linda University, California  in 2019.
Over my past working experience, I spent 4 years working as a Physical therapist at an outpatient orthopedics/neuro clinic, helping patients manage pain while moving freely, and optimizing functional capacity. I enjoy working with patients, giving  me the opportunity to educate and empower people to be more aware of their bodies, realizing their potential and therefore improving their overall quality of life. 
That being said, I try my best to bring the best possible outcomes for my patients. Throughout my career, I really love what I do and relish every opportunity to help my patients.
And I am an outdoorsy person, during my free time, I enjoy hiking, freediving, surfing, stand up paddleboarding
