Redondo Beach Chiro | Meet Our Healing Team

Dr. Roshani Desai

Chiropractor

Born and raised in Southern California, Dr. Desai has a real passion to help others reach an optimal level of health. It's important to her that her patients not just survive aches and pain, but THRIVE in life.

She got her start in Health at Cal Poly Pomona, where she majored in Sports Medicine, specializing in Health Promotion. After graduation, she worked at Cal Poly Pomona Health Center as the campus Health Program Coordinator for students. She created health programs to educate students on a variety of health topics and to improve their health.

She went on to receive her Master's Degree in Health Promotion Management at American University. She then realized that if she wanted to make a big impact on others, she would need to be more hands on. That is when she decided to get her Doctorate in Chiropractic.

Dr. Desai's background allows her to have a "whole person" approach to the care she provides. Educating her patients is also a big part of the quality care she offers. She makes it a priority to inform her patients about how the body functions and what can be done to prevent future health problems and injury.
