About Dr. Robin Harkins


Robin Christopher Harkins has been a practicing Chiropractor amongst other specialties in his hometown of Oxnard, California since 2009. Being a native of Ventura County his entire life, it was dream come true to be able to open his practice where he grew up. At a very young age, Dr. Harkins vision was to one day help individuals pursue and maintain optimal health. Focusing on a natural alternative approach -Chiropractic was the perfect fit since it focused on the body’s natural capabilities and intelligence to heal itself. Graduating with a Doctorate in Chiropractic from Cleveland Chiropractic College of Los Angeles and accumulating over 2000 hours of nutritional studies-He soon realized that there was a huge demand for alternative and functional medicine care in a world adapted to modern western medicine. This allowed Dr. Harkins to establish a unique practice that would go beyond traditional chiropractic care and incorporate targeted nutritional and functional neurological based care amongst many other alternative therapies. 

Incorporating and addressing genetic, dietary, hereditary, environmental and lifestyle factors that directly influence long-term health and chronic health issues and focusing on the body as whole not only symptomology; allowed Dr. Harkins to seek and identify the root causes of disease and/or chronic pain-allowing him to treat each patient as an individual unique case. 

With this health care approach Dr. Harkins started to see more patients with chronic conditions such as: chronic fatigue, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, autoimmune diseases, digestive disorders, mood disorders-such as debilitating anxiety and depression. Witnessing more complex issues entering his practice, Dr. Harkins went on to become Board-Certified in Integrative Medicine and Board-Certified Functional Nutritionist.

Wanting to be a better doctor and go on to offer his patients the best care, he went on to further his education by obtaining his credentials in targeted Neurofeedback also known as Biofeedback Therapy. Biofeedback therapy targets how the role of the Brain from a functional standpoint contributes to the overall health of each patient. Simultaneously, he became a Clinical Hypnotherapist, using the tools of medical hypnosis with the understanding that our subconscious brain plays into approximately 85% of our decision making throughout our life.
