In 1989, Alco Chan suffered a severe back injury that made his doctors wonder if he would ever walk again. A miraculous comeback after a year of rehabilitation inspired him to become a physical therapist and practitioner of the healing arts to share with others the opportunity to heal and restore their quality of life.
In 1998, Alco earned a master’s degree in physical therapy from the University of Medicine of New Jersey. He founded the Alco Physical Therapy clinic in 2001 and was recognized by the AMA as a low back and hip specialist in 2003. In 2005, he founded Tension Tamers, a company specializing in the development and implementation of on-site wellness and injury prevention programs.
He is creator of the Body Optimalization method. He is an approved provider of continuing education for the American Physical Therapy Association and the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. He has been a licensed physical therapist, bodyworker, and massage therapist in the Bay Area for 18 years.
