Dr. Liz’s Story

I have always been passionate about health, wellness, and transformational growth.

When people ask me how I discovered Network Care, I love to share my story. When I began my doctorate in chiropractic, I consistently noticed a group of people at school who were happier and healthier than the rest of us. They seemed to be handling the rigorous demands of our curriculum with much more ease, grace, and humor. I knew I wanted what they had, so I sought out a Network practitioner.

As soon as I began care, my life began to change for the better. I felt happier and better able to manage stress. I slept better. I became more connected to my mind, body, and spirit than ever before. And residual pain from previous accidents and life traumas resolved.

I knew I had found my life’s calling and have passionately pursued it ever since. I have attained the highest level of certification as a Network Care practitioner. I regularly attend trainings, workshops, and retreats with the founder of the work, Dr. Donald Epstein.

My expertise lies in helping you clarify what it is you want, and my commitment is to provide you with the tools to get there. It is with great honor I serve our community, helping my practice members create amazing lives for themselves. I look forward to meeting you.

Dr. Sara Vargas Story

dr-sara-vargas-300Dr. Sara brings forth over 12 years of experience in the health and healing arts. Prior to moving to California, she had a successful massage and Reiki practice on the NH seacoast. Dr. Sara began receiving regular chiropractic care in 2002. Her X-rays showed that she had scoliosis and she was devastated. “The adjustments changed my life. I felt like a veil had been lifted and my standard for how good I could feel in my body was raised exponentially.” Shortly thereafter she became a chiropractic assistant and was inspired and wowed by the miracles she witnessed daily. “Taking X-rays and posture pictures of people, I got to see firsthand the incredible physical changes that take place. The mental and emotional changes were always clear, as well, when someone left our office with their heart and smile leading the way!”

It was through her work as an assistant that she discovered her deeper calling. Answering that call, she received her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College West, in 2011. She continues to study and take advance seminars in order to specialize and be certified in Network Spinal Analysis. “This incredible work, and all of you, inspire me every time I show up at the table. Our body is our most valuable asset. I am hear to help you access its wisdom and to live the most connected and energy rich version of yourself.”

“Growing up playing Suzuki violin, I believe that music taught me a special way of expressing and connecting to the world. My music gave me a strong ability to be present and aware, to truly hear what is spoken underneath the surface. I bring this skill with me to the table. I am honored to be in service and I look forward to growing with each and every one of you.”

Currently, Dr. Sara resides with her husband, Marcelo, and their baby-to-be, in the East Bay.
