The word Chiro means hand in Greek. True to the literal meaning of chiropractic, my method is 100% hands on care. There are no drugs, cracks, clicks, elbows, or other tools.
My mission is to share this unique approach to relieving pain and restoring balance to the body through gentle manual therapy of the muscle and fascial system.
My method is noninvasive and based on the fundamentals of anatomy and physiology. It is focused on three areas within the muscle system.
2. Trigger Points
3. The Fascial System
It is safe, logical, and provides lasting results.
My practice style evolved from my passion for physical fitness and exposure to eastern and western medicine.
I received a B.S. in Health and Physical Education from the University of Delaware in 1997. My love of serving others drew me toward a career helping people on a more intimate level. 4 years later I earned my D.C. degree from Life University in Marietta, GA.
Throughout my schooling I was a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. That experience made me think how muscles are directly related to the concepts taught in chiropractic school. Manipulating the spine buried beneath multiple layers of muscles never made sense to me.
I began my career in Philadelphia practicing within health clubs. After four years I left the gym to practice alongside a primary care physician. In 2007, I moved to Arizona and opened Scottsdale Neurology with my brother Seth Kaufman, M.D., M.P.H. His extensive training and expertise in neuromuscular medicine and vascular neurology has a profound impact on how I practice.
One day a patient brought in her friend from California. She invited me to Malibu and I've been expanding my practice there since 2016. I teamed up with Corie Tappin, L.Ac., Dipl. O.M. at her wellness center, SoulSpace. We discovered a synergy with our collaboration that provides patients optimal results.
"Thank you, thank you, thank you, Because of your treatment, I am walking so much better and have so much more freedom in my hip movement than I could have ever imagined. I'm truly grateful." Carolyn R.
"He may be a Chiro by trade, but his methods of muscle/facia manipulation work. Great Doc. He truly helped me after my wreck where I felt at a loss. Highly recommend." Magdelena R.
"The Kaufman Method has helped me tremendously. Dr. Kaufman's ability to use a unique simple method of relaxing your muscles through scientific distinct pressure points. This process has helped my body relax from all the stress I put on it and my nervous system is able to conduct and facilitate itself in an easier fashion. I feel so much happier and it has amazingly helped my drop foot. I do not walk with an obvious gimp as much anymore. Highly recommended for anyone with any ailment." Daniel A.
Q. How long are your appointments?
A. First visit is 90 minutes. Please bring records. Follow-up visits are 60 minutes.
Q. How often do I need to see you?
A. I typically suggest once a week for 4-6 weeks. After that, we will tailor it based upon the results.
Q. Is this massage?
A. No. I do not massage patients. Patients don't get undressed. Only gentle thumb and finger pressure is used to trigger change within the muscle and fascial system.
Q. Do you take insurance?
A. I do not take insurance. Patients may request billing information to submit their claims. Some insurance plans offer chiropractic benefits and will reimburse the patient accordingly.
