Testimonials

I was in a level 10 of pain in my lower back for over a week. I had gone to my primary doctor to find out what was wrong and they prescribed me pain med’s. After a week of being in severe pain and on med’s I realized that a chiropractor could help me. I made an appointment with Dr. Joe at Good Vibrations and got an adjustment the same day. Within 24 hours my pain level had gone from terrible pain from a level 10 to a 5. I then went and got adjusted again the next day and my back pain is extremely better. I can’t thank him enough. He helped me so much and while the pain med’s just numbed the pain, it didn’t solve my problem like the adjustment have been. If you are in pain and suffering like I did I would highly recommend calling this practice and making an appointment. Gina C.
I am an avid runner, so when I started getting numbness in my arms and hands I looked for a solution and thought a chiropractor would be a good possibility. I decided to try Good Vibrations because they are walking distance from my house and I’m very glad I did. Great doctors, very friendly staff, soothing environment. They got me running again in just a few weeks without any pain at all and I’ve even set a PR in the last 1/2 marathon I ran. Much of the joy I’ve found in running has returned because I made the decision to visit Good Vibrations. My wife is 6 months pregnant and she too has started to go to ease the muscle and back pain that comes with toting around our next child. She also raves about them to me and all our friends. If you’re having back or muscle pain, give these folks a try. Dave N.
It was my first time going to the chiropractor, and at first I wasn’t sure about it. But I took a chance at something new, I was tired of doctors prescribing me nothing but pain killers all the time. Its been three months of therapy and I haven’t used an inhaler for my asthma ever since. My digestive system has been running a lot better and I feel better and take care of myself and my body more. Thank you Good Vibrations! Alex G.
I have been more than blessed to have found Dr Joe and Dr Stacy!!!! Not only have I finally gotten the pain management and alignment maintenance I’ve been lacking for many years for my scoliosis, but this place has the most amazing energy, the staff are customer service rock stars, and I feel cared for as well as about. Where else can you get that kind of holistic care? I can tell you right now, not too many other places. I believe in this place so much that my husband and my two daughters come to get adjusted as well, and now my brother is too!!!! I refer anyone and everyone to come here. I love my chiro!!!  Nilsa M.
I absolutely love this place. Everyone is so friendly and Dr Joe and Dr Steve are awesome. I see Dr Joe 99% of the time and I really look forward to his positive energy each week. They are super kid friendly and very accommodating with my schedule. I am so thankful for them. I would highly recommend coming here. I thought chiropractic care was just about the back but it really is about the whole body. I originally went there because I was having pain in my neck but ended up continuing my care because I found that within a week of going there it cleared up some female issues I was having as well. I love being able to go in there every week and say you know my foot is bothering me and he helps me with that or my wrist is bothering me and he helps me with that and sometimes I am just feeling low and his hug helps me with that. I leave there every single time feeling better than when I walked in. He has helped me accomplish some of my health goals by his support and encouragement. I really can’t say enough about this place. LOVE THEM :) -H.B
I regularly saw a chiropractor out in North County for 15 years whom I loved; but when I moved to Downtown San Diego in 2009, I had to find a new chiropractor locally. I searched for about 3 years, tried out five chiropractors in my area before I found Dr. Joe at Good Vibrations. I really liked the way Dr. Joe adjusted me and loved his upbeat and happy personality which is why I chose to continue going to see him as opposed to all the rest. I like how Dr. Joe checks out my back once every three months with the scanner to show me how my back is doing and the progress I am making, and how “he takes the time” to talk to me about my health and my goals, encouraging me in a very positive fashion. He’s an exceptional listener. Also, the office is quite nice and all office staff are super friendly, always making you feel welcome with their smiling faces and positive words. And they are always quite good about working around your schedule; a big plus for me since my schedule can change on a dime. It would be a few months into my treatments with Dr. Joe that I got my first adjustment from his wife, Dr. Stacy. She rocks, too, adjusted me well and all with a positive and upbeat attitude, to include a hug. What I also like about Good Vibrations is that if Dr. Joe and Dr. Stacy go away for training or vacation or what have you, they ensure your ongoing care is not interrupted by having their friend/colleague, Dr. Steve, fill in while they are away. I have been adjusted by Dr. Steve and can attest that he is a fantastic chiropractor. It’s a win-win for anyone who goes to Good Vibrations. I highly recommend them!!! -D.J
My five year old son and I have been a client of Dr. Joe and Dr. Stacey for the past eight months and could not be happier! The physical and emotional support we receive from Good Vibrations is truly one of a kind. My son went in to get an adjustment feeling tired, weak, nauseated, and suffered from a terrible headache. Literally 10 minutes after his adjustment he was brought back to life. His energy level was back to normal in less than one hour and his headache was gone! As a mom there is no greater feeling then to know my child is getting the best possible care. I feel so fortunate to have Dr. Joe and Dr. Stacey in our lives. Thank you for taking care of my family!!! -C.S
I’ve been working with Dr. Steve Tullius and the wonderful staff at Good Vibrations, for five weeks now. I was skeptical at first. Not because I did not believe in chiropractic, but because having my neck wrenched makes me cringe. They’ve made a believer out of me. My body has not felt better in quite a while. It has been responding very well to the treatment. The staff is always very friendly, positive, and very professional. Recently, I’ve also started seeing their massage therapist Theresa, who also rocks! And compliments the Chiro very well! Do your self a favor and pay these guys a visit. You will thank yourself for it! -J.E
Good Vibrations is very aptly named because that is exactly the environment they create. With both the patient experience and with their treatment plans you always come away with good vibrations after each appointment. Even if you are new to chiropractic treatment you will feel more than comfortable with Dr. Joe and Dr. Stacey’s care along with the entire team. You will come away with more than just improved health but also with knowledge and confidence in your progress because they teach you how regular adjustments contribute to becoming a healthier you. You and your family are treated like friends instead of patients in a waiting room. Life throws you curve balls everyday, you need to be adjusted to be your best! And these guys are the best in SD! -S.Z
Good Vibrations Chiropractic is exactly that, good vibrations. Every time I walk into the office, I feel I am surrounded by fantastic energy from both Dr. Joe and the entire staff. I have been seeing Dr. Joe for a few years now and continue to look forward to every appointment. I have been under chiropractic care for many years now and am so grateful I have been able to find a great chiropractor since moving here. -J.B
I love Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic! Dr. Joe and all the staff are extremely knowledgeable, talented, professional, warm and kind. From my very first visit I felt comfortable because everyone in the office is so genuine. Their passion for what they do shows in every interaction with their clients. Dr. Joe planned out my path of healing and the progress I have made is incredible. Freedom of movement, pain relief and overall improved health and wellness is the product of his great work. What I really like is Dr. Joe’s focus on not only physical well-being, but mental and emotional health too. I look forward to the positive energy and health maintenance I receive each week from Good Vibrations! -D.P
Dr. Joe and his staff are outstanding. I’ve been seeing him for 10 months due to a back and neck out of alignment from years of carrier aviation in the Navy. It was so bad my right leg was numb and I could not work out. Dr. Joe has gotten me adjusted where I can perform all my normal physical activities. He also has adjusted me so I don’t have to take nexium anymore. The best thing about him and his caring staff are the ability to make people feel better about life no matter what trails they may be facing. His monthly discussions during his workshops are fantastic and really help with coping skills in todays fast paced society. Best chiropractor on the planet!!!! Wish I could give him 10 stars, 5 isn’t enough. -W.R

Hola! Mi nombre es Flor y le doy gracias a Dios de conocer al doctor Joe y su equipo.
Yo antes tenia mucho malestar en mi cuerpo, uno que era más doloroso es cuando me agachaba no me podia enderezar otro que no podia dormir bien. Cada mañana yo queria domir mas, bueno era lo mismo con la comida, cada que comia sentia que no era suficiente. En si era un descontrol total en mi cuerpo. Despues de corto tiempo con el doctor puedo decir ques estoy super bien. Puedo agachar cuantas veces quiera y no pasa nada, comer lo normal, dormir bien todo es normal. Ahora estoy exelentemente con mi salud. Gracias al doctor y a todo su equipoque son muy amables.
    Muchas gracias!
Many of my friends and students are miserable with the bugs going around, snotting all over me, contaminating my stuff. Yesterday after work, I felt awful– shakin’ and achin,’ dead tired. I made a pot of tea, went to bed for a couple of hours, and woke up feeling great! Was it the flu shot? Never touch the stuff. I attribute it to my robust immune system, supported by regular adjustments by Dr. Joe Merlo; and my constant affirmation: I DO NOT GET THE FLU! Maybe YOU should be pickin’ up Good Vibrations Chiropractic! -MM
I have such great things to say about this place, it may be hard to keep it short and sweet!!! First off, Dr. Joe and his staff are GREAT. I cannot say enough about them. Whenever my family walks in, we’re ALWAYS greeted with a friendly smile. Dr. Joe has taken the time to address all of our questions and/or concerns, which we have really appreciated. We never feel rushed at all, which is something that goes a long way in today’s fast-paced world.
Initially, we sought out chiropractic care for our 3 year old son, who was having issues with a dry, unproductive cough for a little over a year. After seeing numerous doctors, he was finally diagnosed with something called “cough-variant asthma,” and it was suggested that he be put on Singular, something I wasn’t too happy about. Prior to his “diagnosis,” we had tried so many different things (and I put, “diagnosis” in quotations because the doctor just said that his symptoms “sounded” like cough-variant asthma, not that it actually was, and that the only way to know was to put him on the medication to see if it helped). So if this medication worked, then we have our diagnosis. If it didn’t, we’d move ahead and try something else. However, I wasn’t up for treating our little boy like a guinea pig. I was optimistic that there was something out there, and after an exhausting year of trying everything from elimination diets, allergy testing (all tests showed he had ZERO allergies), allergy meds (just in case), homeopathic remedies, a trip to the gastroenterologist and the allergist – our last resort was chiropractic care. I was always very skeptical with alternative meds. Yes, I believed that they worked for others, but I had a hard time believing it’d work for us. At this point, my husband and I had the decision to either fill his prescription or try to see how chiropractic care could help him.
It’s been about 2 months since we’ve been seeing Dr. Joe and I think I can confidently say that I have seen amazing results that are no coincidence! After the first two adjustments (5 apart), I noticed significant improvement in his cough. We went two weeks (til his next scheduled adjustment) without using his inhaler, which was a triumph for us because he was currently using his inhaler every 2-3 days. After his 3rd adjustment, the coughing became more sporadic and the gaps between coughing went a lot longer, several hours, if that. After the 4th adjustment (this is when I began to see obviously noticeable results), he went three weeks without any coughing, except for the first day or so after the adjustment, but again, not enough to have to reach for his inhaler. We’re on his 5th adjustment, and he’s doing WONDERFUL. I am a believer in chiropractic care now, and my husband and I will continue to take our son here (I’m going as well; I’m 5 months pregnant now!) and I trust that we will continue seeing positive results, in more ways than one.
Dr. Joe is a wonderful person – he’s truly amazing. He’s very gentle (and I mean this!). I was terrified to get adjusted, especially around my neck area, but he talked to me about what we would do and reassured me of any fears I had, and I look forward to coming in now. Our son loves him, too! He asks to come back, and he’s always ready to give Dr. Joe a hug. We are very blessed to have found our prayers answered in a small, quaint clinic with an amazing chiropractor and a terrific staff. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!-R Family

 

September 25th, 2011 was the day we happen to attend the Adams Street Fair and as we were walking up to the fair, I specifically told my husband my soul purpose is to find a professional chiropractor that knows what he or she is doing and not a quack.  In fact the first booth we visited was Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic and met with Elise and Caroline the ladies are amazing.  Their energy was genuine and enthusiastic.  My husband and I signed up that day.  In late October of 2011 we had our first appointment and I found it interesting. I had some concerns because I really wanted and needed a better alternative for my physical and mental health.  We met with Elise and she performed the electronic stress test and took a before picture.  During the process she explained what she was doing and the purpose.  Then we met with Doctor Joe Merlo and he came in to introduce himself and did a Q&A with us.  He showed us our results of the test and explained in detail of all our stress points and what he can do for us.  He was genuine and sincere about our concerns and made it easy to work with.  We returned on November 21st 2011 to start our healing process 2 to 3 times a week.  We were in so much pain from many stresses in our everyday lives which have taken control of our being.  My husband and I are both diabetics and overweight.  Before we started the program I was always in pain doing everyday chores because I couldn’t stand up straight, bend down to pick up things, and most importantly walk short or long distances and could not climb stairs.  All that I could not do I gained so much weight and hating it all.  How pathetic and shamed I was…”What happened to the energetic, vibrant and athletic person I was once?”  I let life consume me and not taking any control of my well-being.  I knew I had to find an intelligent, knowledgeable, competent professional doctor of chiropractic.  Thank God, he answered my prayers.  Doctor Joe has turned our life around, he is THE BOMB!  He is such an incredible doctor of chiropractic and an AWESOME TEACHER!  It has been 8 months and both my husband and I are becoming active in our lives and pleasantly happier without extreme pain.  Our friends and families have told us that we look so much stronger and happier.  We both see a major difference in our health and so does our primary doctor.  Thank you so very much Doctor Joe you are a “God’s Blessing”.    Here’s a reminder to ourselves and that is eat healthy, drink a lot of water, stretch before working out whatever it may be, and get at least 8 hours of sleep. -JB

I signed up for chiropractic care when about 7 months pregnant with my first child. My back was constantly hurting and my hips felt out of whack. I had experienced chiropractic care within a managed care setting but never before had I gone to an independent chiropractor. I went to him instead of to my managed care chiropractor due to Dr. Joe’s expertise with treating pregnant women and babies/kids. I definitely do not regret my decision to outside of my HMO to be seen and treated. Good Vibrations is a unique establishment and I think that’s what keeps people coming back. While the trendy music and the post-treatment hugs may not be for everyone, I sure appreciate the positivity and always leave the office rejeuvenated in both body and soul. Dr. Joe is a genuinely good person and a talented healthcare provider who demonstrates both caring and professionalism. I highly recommend his services.-MM

So far my experience at Good Vibrations has been great. Everyone is very nice, the attitude around the office is great and the atmosphere is very friendly.
Every time that I had to change an appointment I had no trouble doing so and every time that I have a question Dr. Joe always takes the time to answer all my inquires.
I have never gone to another chiropractor and I don’t see why I should, Good Vibrations always leaves me with a smile on my face and (most importantly) my back feeling much better.
I strongly recommend it!-BT

This is a long overdue review, and if I had a megaphone I’d happily shout it out. Dr Joe is an exceptional chiropractor. I should know: I’ve been adjusted by at least 25-30+ different chiropractors in my various moves around the country, and I have become very discriminating about what works to keep myself free from neck pain and also in my best health. One of my closest friends, who is also now himself a chiropractor, taught biochemistry at a chiropractic college and we routinely hung out with and got adjusted by other chiropractic faculty and students. Of all the chiropractors from whom I’ve received regular care, Dr Joe is clearly the best. I have been at his practice for about two years now, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else in San Diego (I did try others before I chose Dr. Joe). My daughter who is almost 10 now receives care there too, as do other kids from her elementary school. After I was there for awhile, I knew it was the kind of place where I could introduce my daughter to wellness care. She looks forward to going, and she says it helps her body feel better for her gymnastics and karate.
In addition to his excellent adjusting skills, Dr. Joe along with his wife and superb staff have created a genuinely warm and welcoming environment. Good Vibrations gives us an uplifting energy boost every time we’re there. I’m sorry for Natalie that she felt unhappy and didn’t like getting a hug – they’re always optional at Good Vibrations. In fact, I’ll take two. As for money, what I’ve spent there is certainly fair. It has been more than worth what I’ve received back in health and wellness benefits. For my daughter and for me and for other families we’ve met there, Good Vibrations is a true gem of a chiropractic office and community. If you are looking for a chiropractor who is strong but gentle, suitable for either adults or kids, and who can help heal pain and also move beyond pain relief into wellness or athletic performance, go see Dr. Joe. I’ve given him 5 out of 5 stars, but I think he deserves more.-PM

I’ve been seeing Dr. Joe Merlo for about 5 years now, on and off … I ride horses and have taken up jumping so I want to be sure I’m fit and can handle the impact without causing damage to my spine. I have had back problems in the past and chiropractic had kept me ‘in the saddle’! Dr. Joe has also helped me through breast cancer, keeping my system open to all the treatments and I belive my recovery was a success in part because my good overall health, helped by my chiropractic adjustments.
The office has evolved from just a couple of rooms to a warm environment that welcomes you in and sends you out, ready to take on the world. I highly recommend Dr. Joe – you’ll soon be singing his praises, too!-CR

I have been seeing Dr. Joe at Good Vibrations for 2 years now. He is a great Chiropractor and one of the nicest most decent human beings I have ever met. I feel that he truly cares about me, my health and my family. He has gone out of his way several times to be available to me on my schedule, not his. The office staff couldn’t be nicer to me about scheduling and changing my appointments. Carolyn, Elise and Lauren always greet me with a smile – no matter what time I show up. I often tell my friends its my favorite bill to pay.-DH

Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic is the Perfect Name! Dr. Joe Merlo and his Team are AWESOME!
Before my husband and I started treatment with Dr. Joe, I was in severe pain daily. My husband and I use to walk 5 miles or more and having fun. I started getting sick with migraines, back pain, stomach pain, and joint pain. I was seeing my family practice doctor for treatments and all I was getting was more prescription drugs as I walked out of my visits. I became a human pharmacy. Pain was still there.Thank you Dr. Joe, you opened our eyes to a new world of pain free energizing freedom. You are the BOMB! Everytime we come for our treatment we are energized and I’m taller. Yeah!!!!!! Dr. Joe is so knowledgeable, positive, energizing and caring of our well-being. Most importantly, DRUG FREE!!!!!!! Thank You, thank you, thank you!!!!!!-JB

Dr Joe and his team is more than your usual chiropractic business. From walking in the door its a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Everyone could not be sweeter or make you feel more special. You cant help to notice they truly care about my well being which is also seen in the weekly topic hard copy with question from Dr Joe. It makes one think and take action similar to a life coach. You will feel enriched walking out the door.-TI

I have referred many clients to Good Vibrations. They are warm, genuine and passionate about what they do. They also have a really good newsletter. I definitely recommend!-RR

Dr. Joe and Dr. Stacy are amazing! As a chiropractor myself, I have pretty high standards for chiropractic care. I’ve been driving down from north county for two years for my weekly adjustments, and I can honestly say that I’ve received nothing less than EXCEPTIONAL care! Dr. Joe, Dr. Stacy, and the rest of their team treat every practice member like family. I always feel enveloped by love when I walk through their doors!
The adjustments i’ve received have been gentle, effective, and full of loving intention! After each adjustment, I leave more connected to my innate healing potential and ready to step into life with more energy, positivity, and vibrancy!
Their payment plans are awesome and affordable for the whole family, and you will learn something new and exciting about yourself each time you go in. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Good Vibrations Chiropractic! They are the real deal!-SS

Joe and Stacey are the best!! Thank you for the love, warmth, expertise and caring you give me and so many
I highly highly recommend you guys above and beyond!!-AC

Dr. Joe, Thank you so much for your loving presence and warm energy in offering the home visit to our family. We are so blessed to know you and be cared for by you so our family grows and blossoms. -With love and joy, JS

The Entire Team at Good Vibrations is wonderful. The staff is courteous and kind and eager to get you in on time. Dr. Joe is phenomenal! His adjustments are always performed with high intention. I feel like I am the center of the universe when I am there. The office has a congruency and I get the sense they do not have “jobs” but vocations. I am in the service industry and I notice all the small details- this is a solid bunch. Technically speaking, I have had tremendous stress since I relocated and I feel Dr. Joe’s adjustments help me recover faster and calm my system down each and every time I’m there. I have been to MANY chiropractors in the past and Dr. Joe and Good Vibrations are just great. Do yourself a favor and call them up and meet them. You’ll see what I’m talking about. It’s palpable.

I’ve received massages from many different practitioners, and Teresa is one of the most if not the most skilled I’ve ever gotten a massage from. She’s highly intuitive about where in my body I especially need support and does focused supportive work that has provided me a lot of relief for my back and shoulders, in particular, that have really been stressed. I highly recommend you gift yourself with a massage from Teresa as part of your wellness program for yourself. -Brian

Dr. Joe’s positive, upbeat persona is infectious and lends itself well to the healing process since mind, body and spirit are all interlinked. As far as the adjustment goes, I began feeling immediate pain relief and can feel my body beginning to correct itself and my posture improving. All in all a wonderful experience. -Mia

For Teresa Patchett, Massage Therapist:
This was the most intense massage I have ever experienced and the most healing. I have been in pain for quite some time due to strained and tight muscles, and this massage provided instant relief. It was also a critical component of my overall neck and back therapy, as my muscles were less tense making my chiropractic treatments more bearable. -Mia

Dr Joe and staff run their office with a true family atmosphere. I feel absolutely comfortable trusting my family’s care with them. Dr Joe is knowledgeable, caring and honest about your treatment. When I walk into Dr. Joe’s office, I know I will leave feeling better than when I came in. I am truly in good hands at this office. Thanks again Dr Joe! -Scott

I love love love Dr. Joe and all of the receptionists!! I love how when you walk in the door you feel so welcomed and that all of the receptionists know every patients name and everything about them=) and for my daughter they have toys she can play with while i get adjusted and she loves going to see everyone, she has sooo much fun!! Dr. Joe is amazing!! He as well knows everyone individually and asks everyone how their week is going!! I love how friendly everyone is there!!! Also since Dr. Joe has adjusted me I have grown a quarter of an inch=) Who knew just by straightening out your back could make you grown!! Ive noticed a great improvement in my posture and I feel better about myself!! Thankyou so much Dr. Joe and team!! Yall are amazing!! -Rachel

I love getting a massage from Teresa! She is the best massage therapist I have ever had. She really knows how to work out the “kinks”! I always feel great at the end of the massage. I am both relaxed and energized! I highly recommend her! -Ellen

Dr Merlo in Kensington is AMAZING!
The staff and customer care is beyond any ‘doctors’ office I have ever been to, they immediately get to know you and always call you by first name.
Dr. Merlo is completely down to earth. Cares about his clients and takes the time to explain things.
Anyways I could go on and on… but give them a try! You won’t be disappointed.
I was referred to him earlier this year and have been nothing more but pleased!!

San Diego Chiropractors Care about YOU!
Lower back tension relieved! Dr. Stacey, Dr. Joe and the Good Vibrations staff are all kind, warm, caring people. They make you feel right at home and honestly care about you and your health. Since going here, I’ve seen dramatic improvement in my lower back tension. Getting my tight neck adjusted every week is a blessing. Wonderful staff, modern technology, great equipment, effective technique and a wealth of knowledge – you won’t find better!

Improved Quality of LIFE!
I love going to Good Vibrations. Dr. Joe has helped me with my pain level and this has greatly improved my quality of life. I am now able to do things I have been unable to do for several years. The staff and surroundings make this the best chiropractic experience I have ever had. I highly recommend Good Vibrations Chiropractic in San Diego!

You’re Amazing!
Dear Dr Joe, Thank you so much for allowing me the privilege of visiting the office. You, along with your awesome team of Carolyn, Elise and Lauren definitely maintain the “Good Vibes” of Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic. It has so much more the feel of a place of peace and comfort than that of a “Doctor’s” office. I’m looking forward to being back in San Diego and visiting again. In the meantime spring is here and looking beautiful as ever! -BR

No more stress! After the worst grad semester at SDSU, Dr. Joe was the answer to my recovery. He helped me by lowering my stress levels dramatically and over all just feel well and healthy. After only a few months, my body felt great and my spirits were high again. I could not believe how fast I recovered; in just a course of five months I felt like I had never felt before! -SB

I have suffered from “daily” headaches for as long as I can remember and have seen several doctors who have simply prescribed various forms of medications. I began chiropractic care with Good Vibrations last September. The atmosphere was calming and relaxing. The staff was welcoming and very intuitive to my needs. I am happy to report that my headaches are decreasing. I am no longer taking medications, my energy level is up, and people who know me on a daily basis have noticed that my “overall” demeanor is positive. Thank you Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic for your continued care and support for your client’s well-being. You have changed my life! -KT

One of the things I look most forward to during my week, is coming to your office! The babies, the children, the dogs, the elders, the laughter, the support, the heart, and Oh, ya the INCREDIBLE chiropractic care, and the love all fuel and lift me! You’re the best!!~KA

Dr. Joe is one of the best Chiropractors in the San Diego area.

WHAM… Rear End Collision!!!
This dude hit my car going about 45 mph.
Which did a huge number on my body, neck, shoulder that caught the safety belt, foot that braced itself against the back wall of the brake, knee that hit something, and blah blah blah.
I felt so rotten the first night that I could barely walk or sleep. I couldn’t wait to get into the chiropractor the next day. I looked through yelp’s reviews and found Dr. Joe listed.
Someone complained that they didn’t like the fact that he hugs his clients at the end of the session. Get over it! Hey, this is part of the healing process– people need more hugs!
The office is such a peaceful and relaxing place to visit, perfectly Feng Shui’d where it feels like you are on vacation!
The front desk staff is great!
I was particularly impressed to see that they all dressed up for Halloween in such cute outfits from Dr. Suess, and Dr. Joe dressed as a Skeleton, which was really funny!
I’ve seen a number of chiropractors in the San Diego area, and Dr. Joe is definitely one of the best! He has a very upbeat, positive attitude that immediately sets him apart from a number of the other chiropractors in san Diego.

No More Headaches!
Before Good Vibrations I would have horrible headaches several times a week.  I would continuously take over-the-counter medicine to “cure” my pain.  After being adjusted on a regular basis I do not have many headaches at all and if I do I am able to use other healthier options to relieve the pain.  I use less over-the-counter medicine and I am proud to be healthier and well educated! ~EL 

Pain & Baby Weight Gone
I am amazed at the positive changes my body has undergone since I’ve started getting adjusted by Dr. Joe. Prior to this, I had spent many years with agonizing back, neck, and leg pain due to a major car accident, as well as from the added pressure of weight-gain from having a baby. Today, I am virtually pain-free, and I have more energy than I have had in years. My mood is more optimistic, and the quality of my sleep has improved dramatically. I appreciate Dr. Joe’s personal touch and his focus on educating his patients about the benefits of maintaining a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle. Finally, his staff is very warm and friendly, and his office clean and inviting. In my opinion, “Good Vibrations” is more like “Great Vibrations”. –Karine R.

I had an excellent experience

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Joe and Stacey. Good Vibrations Chiropractic has changed my life and I recommend them to everyone. They are the best Chiropractors in San Diego. My life has changed and my whole family gets adjusted. THANK YOU JOE AND STACEY!!
 
Awesome Chiro Care
Good Vibrations has been one of the cornerstones in the foundation of the transformation that my body & life has undergone this year. I am more aware of my body, its signals to me, and more in tune with what works and what doesn’t in keeping me free of the cronic lower back pain I had. Dr. Joe and Dr. Stacey both show me a deep respect and care that sets the bar high in chiropractic care. Good Vibrations is the BEST in San Diego and the hugs alone will keep me returning for years. Being aligned with life and the world goes beyond my spine. They will show you how.-DM
 
Wow – my vertebrae has a new home :)
Dr. Joe is one of the most caring, gentle, and informative chiropractors I have ever visited – and I have visited many in my time :). He brought awareness to areas of my spine that have been negatively affecting me for years and I never knew where my problems stemmed from. I have had 3 visits with him and already notice a difference in my patience level, clarity of mind and stamina at work. Thank you! I would also like to share with those of you who dislike having your neck adjusted (i was one of you) that Dr. Joe had such a gentle hand and approach to his adjustments that you’ll surprisingly find it a relaxing experience :). Thank you-D
 
Here to stay!
I love the peaceful atmosphere at Good Vibrations! Dr. Joe and his staff are very warm, caring and professional. I live a very active lifestyle (wakeboarding, snowboarding, biking) and have had my fair share of injuries! Dr. Joe has not only helped me in recovery, but also in maintaining the strength and flexibility needed to avoid future injury (when possible)!-DB
 
Exceptional Chiropractic Experience
Dr. Joe is an amazing Chiropractor and a loving, caring individual. His Chiropractic adjustments are gentle and specific. Walking into the office, I feel a sense of warmth and peace. He has created a space which is vibrant and healing. A truly exceptional Chiropractic office.-S
 
Best treatment ever……….
Dr. Joe is kindest and most caring Doctor I know. He not only adjusts and/or heals my body, he enriches my mind and soul. When I am in San Diego that is where I go to feel good.-JB
 
The Right Vibe for Living
Dr. Joe encourages people to achieve balance in their lives – through adjustments to your spine along with aligning you physical and emotional well-being. It sometimes surprises me that I walk into Dr. Joe's feeling great and walk out feeling EVEN BETTER!!!-C
 
Awesome place
In my years I have found that only a few people can truly teach to heal your body and soul through chiropractic care. Joe and Stacey happen to be in that category. They are truly there for your well being and your health.-L
 
We Are So Thankful we found Good Vibrations!
I originally went to Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic seeking relief from some back pain I was experiencing during my pregnancy. What I learned, and what everyone should know, is that someone does not have to suffer from the strains that pregnancy puts on one's body- my discomfort was alleviated! I went on to enjoy a very comfortable pregnancy, fulfilling natural childbirth and enjoyable post partum. My son got adjusted during a home visit after he was born and has continued to get gentle adjustments weekly. He loves seeing Dr. Joe and always has a huge smile on his face when being adjusted. I know this has helped him continue thriving as well as he has. My husband began joining us for our weekly adjustments and has reaped the rewards as well. I was so unaware of the overwhelming benefits of chiropractic when I first came to Good Vibrations. I have reached a deeper connection between my body, soul and mind through my visits with Dr. Joe.-YS
 
Chiropractic Heaven!!!
BooYaa!!! Life is good after a visit to Dr. Joe at San Diego's "Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic". It is by far the best chiropractic experience ever and with a few tips on nutrition on the side. I always leave there fully charged and ready to experience life to the max! Its always fun to visit my chiropractor, Dr. Joe. You will love him and the new level of health and vibration he will help you attain.-G
 
Bring more flexibility to your life
I came to Good Vibrations after living with back and neck pain (whiplash) from a fender bender for a over a year. At first I wasn't sure what to expect from chiropractic adjustments but was willing… …
 
A Healing Place
From the moment you walk into the tranquil office and are met with a warm and friendly welcoming from Kara, you begin to feel better – even before Dr. Joe works his magic. He is gentle and effective, and has gone above and beyond to make sure that I am comfortable with each adjustment. If you are nervous about seeing a chiropractor for the first time, or have had a bad experience with one in the past, Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic is the place to go. – R‎
 
The Chiropractor's Chiropractor
Dr. Joe is not only an amazing Chiropractor, but he is a truly loving heart felt individual. He is committed 100% at all times to the people who he serves. I am a chiropractor myself, and have been working in the healing arts for years. I am very particular as to who puts their hands on me. As a San Diego native, I look forward to seeing Dr. Joe each time I visit my hometown. He has been a teacher, healer and guiding light in my life. I would highly recommend Dr. Joe to anyone that wants to take his or her health to the next level!-R
 
Dr. Stacey and Good Vibrations provide…
Even as you approach and enter Good Vibrations Chiropractic, the Spa-like atmosphere and Kara's warm greeting immediately put you at ease. This is your first clue of the holistic and caring approach that Drs. Stacey and Joe Merlo have built their practice on. Dr. Stacey is an awesome combination of professionalism and technical excellence while taking the time to understand your overall physical condition and goals. Combining that insight with current technology to truly understand your physiology she is able to pinpoint your areas of greatest need and provide treatment that is personalized and focused on you. I have had 30 years of chiropractic experience myself for a variety of accidents and sports injuries and feel very fortunate to have recently found Good Vibrations and be in the care of Dr Stacey. She provides excellent chiropractic treatments with such great concern and care that is beyond anything I've experienced before. Thank you Dr Stacey!-G
 
Love them!
Just went in yesterday for lower back pain persisting over 1 month. Met with Stacey and she is so wonderful. She is very informative, gentle, and kind. My back pain is still present, but I do feel better and more relaxed; but these things don’t go away overnight in all cases. I do recommend this practice.-B
 
Experienced, caring and uniquely gifted
Dr. Joe is an amazing chiropractor. I have seen him help many people with varying conditions. I have sent many people to him and all have sang his praises. His technique is superb, a gentle yet powerful touch. Recommended highly!-AU
 
The most caring people you will ever meet
Dr. Joe and Dr. Stacey are absolutely wonderful in every way. They both are very strong in this expertise and never fail to inspire me and give me hope to become a better, healthier person. i love you guys and stay amazing!!!-K
 
Life Changing‎
Dr. Merlo and the staff at Good Vibrations are amazing!! Bringing my family, and my now 9 month old son has been life changing. We have been going for the past 2 months and the changes in my son and myself are wonderful. Before getting adjusted my son would not sleep very often, and had a lot of trouble eating. After the first adjustment he started sleeping 12 hours a night and eating on a regular schedule. He's weight has gone up and he is thriving! As a breatfeeding mom, I struggled to maintain my milk supply and had to pump several times a day and take herbal supplements. After getting adjusted, my body has been making a full supply of milk. Totally life changing! Thanks Dr. Joe!!!-ML
I’ve only been adjusted by Dr. Joe for about 2 months now but it didn’t even take that long to see the results from the great work that he does. I was not in much pain when I began visiting but I was hoping to improve my athletic abilities and help alleviate pain in my shins that would come from running too often. My running times, which have not changed in about 4 months, have improved by 13 seconds per mile and I no longer have the shin pains. I’m finding that I have more energy through out the day and have been better able to deal with stress that comes along in everyday situations.CC
 
Amazing!!!!
My daughter battled so much last fall/winter with colds, ear aches and a suppressed immune system. Dr Stacey’™s support of her health was amazing.
She is continuing to thrive and I know the support she receives from Dr Stacey has a lot to do with it. She is a wonderful chiropractor and mother A huge thank you for all that you have done for our family.-SM
 
Extraordinary care!
Dr. Merlo gives me an extraordinary degree of care and attention. I don’t feel herded through his office. He takes the time to really help me so I can feel my best.-GH
 
Best Service and People
Great people, great facility- Joe and his staff are top notch. Aquariums, ponds, beautiful interior, beautiful people- must make Good Vibrations the nicest Chiropractic office in SD!-DC
 
Definitely the BEST!!!
Dr. Joe and Stacey Merlo and their staff are really second to none. I have been to several chiropractors and they are truly deserving of “BEST in San Diego”. My family and I have been seeing them weekly for nearly two years and we’re healthier than we’ve ever been. It’s a truly magical place with wonderful people and exceptional chiropractic care. Definitely the BEST!!!
 
Dr Joe is amazing
Joe and Stacy merlo have a gift and can feel tension and subluxation in the spine and joints that I didn’t know was there. I feel 7 feet tall when I leave their office, and it keeps me going all week long.-TM
 
Thank heaven for Dr. Joe
Been a constant fan of them ever since my first appointment. They have cleared up my shoulder pain, lower back pain, ringing in my ears and sinus problems.-CB
 
laughter as medicine
i love hearing dr. joe’s laughter, every time i’m there for an adjustment! he truly lives up to the name of his business, spreading the love of healing laughter to all who pass through his doors. i also love that he adjusts the whole gamut of humanity… from infants to the elderly, with professional, personal, intuitive, gentle touch. he is a true master of his craft and brings a passion to his calling which is infectious to the core. there is no doubt that dr. joe merlo changes lives. an elderly woman on the table next to me asked, “do you thank god for dr. joe every day like i do? he got me walking again! that’s what he’s done for me!” there you have it… the best chiropractor in the world, dr. joe merlo and good vibrations family chiropractic!-KA
 

Dr. Joe’s Capacity for Care
I’ve been seeing Dr. Joe now for over a year and simply love the care I receive from him and his staff. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible (should you need to reschedule an appointment). Dr. Joe is intent on each patient understanding what chiropractic is, how the spine contributes to one’s overall health or illness/discomfort, and how he can assist in the healing process. In addition, his “bedside manner” is most wonderful! He has a great sense of humor, a real, tangible compassion toward each of his patients, and an infectious love of life that leaves me smiling each time I visit. -WM

Priceless
This is one of San Diego’s gems! I always float out of the office feeling refreshed on all levels. Not only do they bend over backwards to accomodate emergencies, but they go the extra mile to truly LISTEN and deliver healthcare that is patient-centered, holistic, and JOYOUS! My health insurance would not cover my visits so I paid out of pocket. My care was priceless! Highly HIGHLY recommended.

Baby Back Pain Gone
After giving birth to my baby, my back tightened up so bad I could hardly walk or breathe. All the painkillers in the world couldn’t touch the pain. When we came home from the hospital, the pain was so severe I was literally crawling around on the floor. Even though it was a weekend, we called Dr. Joe and he paid me a house call right away. Immediately after the adjustment I was up and moving again. My mom (a skeptic) even commented on the remarkable before and after difference in my mobility. After a few more visits, the pain was gone for good. It felt like a miracle!. Dr. Joe is a trusted expert and I would recommend his services to anyone! – Tess P.

I felt taller and lighter
I had a great experience being treated at the Good Vibrations by Dr. Joe.  I could feel the difference in my body right after the very first visit.  I felt taller, lighter and more energized.  I love the atmosphere of the office as well.  They always play various cool music from around the world and the staff is super nice.  Everyone is very positive and upbeat.  Dr. Joe goes above and beyond in providing the best care possible.  Thank you Dr. Joe! -YK

Wonderful Chiropractic for kids & pregnancy
It wasn’t until my son started to visibly show signs of discomfort in his neck that I thought to contact them about being seen as a client. The timing couldn’t have been more appropriate for me either, as my back started to become sore with the extra pregnancy weight around that same time.

Feels Like Home
We made an appointment and met with Dr. Joe Merlo who is wonderful to work with. What I love most about him and Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic (after years of experience with different chiropractors in different offices) is that their office feels more like home. It’s very welcoming, the furniture and decor is bright and fun and doesn’t seem sterile or much like a doctor’s office at all. He also approaches his clients with a personal touch, hugging me after each session and leaving me with a question or thought to ponder over after I walk out the door. -Sondra

 
Best thing for my family
We went to Good Vibrations for our son and now our whole family goes. It helps us feel better and be able to do everything we want without pain.-LJ
 
Good Vibration is Outstanding
i think good vibrations is the best. i have been to other chiropractors, but good vibration is the best. starting with the receptionists she is very polite and is willing to work with you getting appointments set up and so on. Joe is the best.-CP
 
Great place to go for your health
Everytime I go to good vibrations chiropractic I feel like new again. If you want to improve your health and energy you definitely need to go. Nice serene place as well !!!-LM
 
Great!
Great people, great environment, and great service! They really take time to get to know you as a person, not only with health issues. They really work to promote overall wellness. Highly recommended!!-AV
 
The Merlo’s & Good Vibrations Know Adjustments!
I have been to a few chiropractors, and I feel really comfortable at Good Vibrations. They care about their customers and their office is adorable. Bonus: pre- and post-natal adjustments! That’s rare and awesome.-MP
 
If you’re pregnant, go see Dr Joe!
I saw Dr. Joe throughout my pregnancy, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that my pregnancy was MUCH smoother and more comfortable than that of my other pregnant friends who did not receive regular chiropractic care. I remained comfortable and active until the day I delivered, and recovered much quicker than average after delivering. Dr. Joe is a passionate and knowledgeable chiropractor, particularly when it comes to treating pregnant women & babies. I highly recommend his services.-KK
 
Absolutely Amazing!!
The team at Good Vibrations is amazing! The environment is second to none. Feels like a second home. The staff is friendly and the Dr’s take time and care with every single patient. I love Good Vibrations! – Malia
 
Good Vibrations All Over
Dr Joe at good vibrations is the master. The proof is in the smiles on the faces of the people leaving his office. Without direction he will find the spot in your body where you are haboring tension and release it.-BS
One Of a Kind
Dr Joe and Dr Stacey are truly dedicated on making a positive impact on every person who steps foot in their office.

Keeping me Healthy!
I have been Dr. Joe’s client at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic for approximately 3 years. Dr. Joe has provided excellent treatment that has allowed me to significantly increase the flexibility in my spine.
Furthermore, the care that I have received from him as a chiropractor has allowed me to successfully train for long distance cycling.

I definitely recommend Dr. Joe at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic to any athlete in training or to anyone who wishes to create more relaxation in their body. Kudos to Dr. Joe!

GOOD VIBRATIONS
i am an ex footballl player and i always thought that you were just supposed to deal with neck and back pain. if you can imangine 500 lbs of force smashing into each other then just imangine what it does to your neck and spine. i wish i would have known about good vibrations while i was playing ball. now i recommend them to all my ball players. Dr. Joes and his wife Dr. Stacey are amazing.
 
Recipe for Health!
After trying another Doctor of Chiropractic in San Diego who was not a good match, I found Dr. Joe Merlo at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic.
The place is friendly and comfortable, and not only did I get used to having another table in the room, but now enjoy the idea of having a shared experience.
I also know that I can have a room for myself when I ask for it. Dr. Joe takes stock of where your body is at and takes the time to help you breathe and let the relaxing begin.
He then carefully and thoroughly clears the subluxations from the spine.
An added bonus to each adjustment is the “thought of the day,” which is designed not only to be thought-provoking but also to help bring relaxation and balance into our everyday lives.
The less stress the better, right? Plus there is frequently a substantial amount of laughing & fun involved in the process.

Finished off with a hug and you’™ve got the recipe for a healthy, calming adjustment from Dr. Joe. I always look forward to my visits Good Vibrations Chiropractic in Kensington.

 
Vibrations is Good
I am a dancer and musician and I use my body hard daily. I really love the enviorment and the love Joe has for healing. I was quick but he really gets down to what my body is trying to say. He always does a checkup and never leaves me waiting. I love him!
 
Because of Dr. Joe, I ride …
I have had trouble with my back that could keep me from my passion of riding horses, but with Dr. Joe’s help, I ride as much as I want and am also competing in hunter/jumper classes! His care has also seen me through my recent fight with breast cancer and I know I made it through chemo and radiation with minimal side effects because of my chiropractic care – Dr. Joe ROCKS!
I am so grateful to have found such a wonderful Chiropractic Family. Dr. Joe radiates health and love. I learn something new everytime I walk into the office. Dr Joe is always challenging his patients to become more aware of what is needed for optimal health. He always wants to get you thinking. His adjustments are the most gentle I have ever experienced. Thank you so much for keeping my power turned on. I am so grateful that my wife has began Chiropractic care for the first time with Dr. Joe and she is already significant changes in her overall health and well being. Chiropractic works! Remove the interfence and the power that made the body will heal the body. Thank you!

A San Diego Chiropractic Office that has great VIBE!
After dealing with a bad case of sciatica for several weeks a friend suggested that I see a chiropractor.  I have always been reluctant to go to Chiropractors in the past, but was desperate and decided to take a chance.  As luck would have it I found Dr. Joe on Yelp.  After my first visit I immediately started feeling relief.  Dr. Joe truly cares about his patients and is always up-beat and enthusiastic when you see him.  It beams through him that he really loves what he does.  The clinic has a great vibe and all of the staff have been awesome!  Scheduling is very convenient and they are always prompt at getting me in.  They have also been really patient with me as I tend to be a little ADD with appointments.  Two thumbs up!  I would definatly refer any of my friend or family to them!

Caring people at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic

The experience the minute you walk in the door is nothing but warming, welcoming, and positive. From the friendly staff to the homey environment, this office has it all. I suffered from chronic back pain starting in February and couldn’t walk or move without feeling intense, almost crippling pain. I started seeing Dr. Joe in February and since then I am pain free and leading a more positive, healthy life thanks to him. I look forward to each visit because there is always a positive energy that flows through the office that is contagious and I always leave with a smile on my face feeling great! – Courtney Brockmeyer

Genuinely Caring Chiropractor
After a car accident three years ago, I started seeing Dr. Joe Merlo at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic for treatments. I experienced immediate relief from back pain and increased energy. Now, as a third-grade teacher, the adjustments help me in releasing any stress I’ve accumulated during the day. I feel grounded and clear-headed after each visit. I am more aware of my body and taking deep breaths. Dr. Merlo has positive energy and genuinely cares about each patient. -Laura Anderson

Chiropractic Helps my Immune System : )
I have to say that before regular chiropractic care, I would get a flu every year that would kick my butt and colds all the time that lasted weeks. Now, if something starts to come on (like a flu or cold) it is gone within a day or two. I still need to clean my diet up and exercise more, but with regular chiropractic and a better attitude (thanks to Dr. Joe at Good Vibrations Chiropractic) my immune system fires up – kicks in – exactly as it should.-KS

Supportive Chiropractor
I want to thank you for all of your help. I came to you for help with my back; since then I have received more than adjustments to my back, I’ve received adjustments to my heart & spirit. You have always had this energy & love about you. Thank you for all of your support & encouragement!

I am in Sync with my Body and Spirit!
Every once in a while we are lucky enough to come across great people that will forever change your life. For me it was the day I came across Dr. Joe and his wonderful staff at Good Vibrations Chiropractic. After suffering endless nights of back pain, headaches and anxiety attacks caused by a very unfortunate car accident, I felt like I was trapped in a never-ending nightmare of physical and emotional distress. I was a bit weary in the beginning about how and if chiropractic healing was the answer that my body needed. But from the day that I had my initial visit with Dr. Joe, I knew I had made the right decision and had come to the right place. I have received adjustments for almost a year now, and I have not suffered a single headache the way I used to a year ago, my anxiety has drastically decreased and I am now able to be physically active and mobile. I am currently an active swimmer and have even joined a softball league. This would have never ever happened if it wasn’t for the healing hands of Dr. Joe at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic. But above all and most importantly, his care hasn’t only healed me physically it has affected me emotionally as well. His care has an adverse impact on both our bodies and spirits, the care that both Dr. Joe and his wife Stacey have for their patients is more than a consultation, they are genuinely people who care about their patients and whose goal is to heal from the inside out. I currently feel great; 20 times better than I did when I first showed up at the steps of good vibrations. For once in a long time I now think more clearly, feel more positive, have more energy and enthusiasm, I am able to be active, and can with certainty say that I am a better person then I was before my car accident. Life is good; I am once again in sync in body and spirit.
Thank you Dr. Joe and his wonderful staff! – LS

Above & Beyond San Diego Chiropractic Office
From the moment you walk into the tranquil chiropractic office and are met with a warm and friendly welcoming from Cara, you begin to feel better – even before Dr. Joe works his magic. He is gentle and effective, and has gone above and beyond to make sure that I am comfortable with each adjustment. If you are nervous about seeing a chiropractor for the first time, or have had a bad experience with one in the past, Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic is the place to go. – Rachel

Staff treats you like Family!
The staff at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic treats you like family from the first appointment to the last. I actually miss being able to see them every week! But I suppose a healthy back is really what’s important, and they are great at that too! Joe & Stacey know their stuff and always have a smile while doing their thing. This place treats you like a human, not a number. And I would refer them to anyone I know with a crick in the neck to a slipped disc. Holler! ~PH

GERD is Gone!!
My son suffered from GERD from the age of 3 months. He spit up non-stop for months. It was very difficult for him as well as my husband and me. He was constantly fussy because he was uncomfortable and could never feel satisfied after eating. We tried medications suggested by the pediatrician but we weren’t comfortable giving medication to a baby so young and they simply weren’t helpful.
When he was 5 1/2 months old I found research suggesting chiropractic care could be helpful. After researching doctors throughout San Diego County we decided to try Dr. Joe at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic.
Our first visit was a very positive experience. I feel Dr. Joe and his staff answered all of our questions and provided me with more than adequate information to understand what was likely going on with my sons system. After two adjustments my son’s spitting up slowed down by the fourth it had all but disappeared! We both still visit Dr. Joe on a regular basis and are feeling great! – CB

Chiropractic Brings more flexibility to my life !
I came to Good Vibrations Chiropractic after living with back and neck pain (whiplash) from a fender bender for a over a year. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect from chiropractic adjustments but was willing to try anything after these nagging back/neck injuries.
A couple of months after I began the chiropractic treatment I noticed the pain subsiding. After six months it was gone. Now after a year of getting adjustments my back has become stronger than it was before my accident.
As for the office itself, the place is very serene, unlike a doctor’s office. Everyone greets you with a smile and helps you to feel welcome.
I highly recommend Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic for anyone searching for a way of enhancing their health.

Dr. Joe is a Guiding Light in My Life!
Dr. Joe at Good Vibrations Chiropractic is not only an amazing Chiropractor, but he is a truly loving heart felt individual. He is committed 100% at all times to the people who he serves. I am a chiropractor myself, and have been working in the healing arts for years. I am very particular as to who puts their hands on me. As a San Diego native, I look forward to seeing Dr. Joe each time I visit my hometown. He has been a teacher, healer and guiding light in my life. I would highly recommend Dr. Joe to anyone that wants to take his or her health to the next level! ~Ryan

Fresh, Urban San Diego Chiropractor!
First off…the office looked completely different than I expected. It has a fresh urban-ish design. I loved that! The music was vibey and the garden is refreshing. Dr. Joe is super friendly and warm and Cara at the front is sweet too. I got referred by the girls at Diesel Salon where I work as a hairdresser, and where my body gets out of whack daily. I used the first time promotion I found here on yelp and he was nice enough to work with my budget, because he knows how bad I am hurting. You see, I had a nasty fall 4 months ago and the result was a herniated disc and a pinched sciatic nerve. OUCH! I know it’s not going to be a fast recovery, but I’m glad Dr. Joe is on my side! ~Katie

Great Visit at one of the Best San Diego Chiropractors
BooYaa!!! Life is good after a visit to Dr. Joe at San Diego’s “Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic”. It is by far the best chiropractic experience ever and with a few tips on nutrition on the side. I always leave there fully charged and ready to experience life to the max! It’s always fun to visit my chiropractor, Dr. Joe. You will love him and the new level of health and vibration he will help you attain.

Life Saving Chiropractor
Dr. Joe Merlo at Good Vibrations Chiropractic is a life saver. When I first started seeing him, I was suffering from physical, mental, and emotional pain. He has helped me to see the brighter side of life. Through consistent adjustments, I have even grown an inch in height and my attitude towards life has opened up. No more aches and pains. Thank you Dr. Joe. You are an amazing human being. ~KB

Family Chiropractic Helps us reach our full potential!
I originally went to Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic seeking relief from some back pain I was experiencing during my pregnancy. What I learned, and what everyone should know, is that someone does not have to suffer from the strains that pregnancy puts on one’s body- my discomfort was alleviated! I went on to enjoy a very comfortable pregnancy, fulfilling natural childbirth and enjoyable post partum. My son got adjusted during a home visit after he was born and has continued to get gentle adjustments weekly. He loves seeing Dr. Joe and always has a huge smile on his face when being adjusted. I know this has helped him continue thriving as well as he has. My husband began joining us for our weekly adjustments and has reaped the rewards as well.
I was so unaware of the overwhelming benefits of chiropractic when I first came to Good Vibrations. I have reached a deeper connection between my body, soul and mind through my visits with Dr. Joe. I feel like this experience has helped me on the course to reaching my full potential. There is so much more too: It has brought me closer to my family; the visits are always filled with positive energy and leave me with a smile; and we always leave with a thought provoking newsletter. I am so thankful that we found Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic! – Y.S

Amazing Chiropractic Results!
I first started seeing Dr. Joe Merlo at Good Vibrations Chiropractic because of a surfing injury in college that never completely healed. Over the years I had tried everything to get it to go away: the trainer at school, massage therapy, my regular doctor and even acupuncture (and I truly hate needles). Everything seemed to help a bit, but nothing got down to the root of the problem to make the pain go away for good. Every time I would go surfing the same muscle group in my neck would seize up and I would return to the beach defeated and have a stiff neck for a week or so….sometimes longer. It got to the point that I felt like not surfing might be the answer….but that was not the solution I was looking for.
I met Joe through my business networking group and decided to give chiropractic a shot. I have been amazed at the results! After a few months of visiting his office three times a week I could tell there was significant improvement in the muscle group that had been acting up, and surfing was not causing any more problems. That was almost a year and a half ago, and I still see Joe every week. He has a great approach to chiropractic and loves his work! -Geoff

Chiropractic Care is Essential for my body to function
Due to several health issues, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and osteoporosis, chiropractic care is essential for my body to function. Dr. Joe and his staff at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic came into my life when I was ready to throw in the towel and give up. I could barely walk into the initial visit and my body hurt all over with every step. Dr. Joe was positive from the beginning and made my care affordable and because of this, I have been consistent with my chiropractic care.
I recommend Dr. Joe at Good Vibrations Chiropractic to the world. He has changed my life, my health, and my outlook about living. – Susan Lamb

Recipe for a Healthy Calming Chiropractic Adjustment
After trying another Doctor of Chiropractic in San Diego who was not a good match, I found Dr. Joe Merlo at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic. The place is friendly and comfortable, and not only did I get used to having another table in the room, but now enjoy the idea of having a shared experience. I also know that I can have a room for myself when I ask for it. Dr. Joe takes stock of where your body is at and takes the time to help you breathe and let the relaxing begin. He then carefully and thoroughly clears the subluxations from the spine. An added bonus to each adjustment is the “thought of the day,” which is designed not only to be thought-provoking but also to help bring relaxation and balance into our everyday lives. The less stress the better, right? Plus there is frequently a substantial amount of laughing & fun involved in the process. Finished off with a hug and you’ve got the recipe for a healthy, calming adjustment from Dr. Joe. I always look forward to my visits Good Vibrations Chiropractic in Kensington. – Tom

Incredible Chiropractic Care!
About 9 years ago I was diagnosed with a herniated disc & degenerative disc disease. I was in weekly Physical Therapy, taking 800 mg of Naprosyn daily and getting a series of 3 epidural injections annually. All of these measures provided little to no long lasting relief from the pain I was in. To compound this problem, I was in a major car accident about 3 1/2 years ago that left me with chronic pain in my upper back and neck. A friend of mine recommended I see Dr. Joe Merlo at Good Vibrations Chiropractic about 1 1/2 years ago. Within a few weeks of my first appointment I had significant reduction in my pain levels for my upper & lower back. With continued care, I now experience little to no pain in my neck, upper or lower back and have improved the quality of my life significantly. Dr. Joe provides an educational, energetic and loving environment that has changed my life! ~Angie

Chiropractic Leads my Journey to Health and Peace of Mind!
I have entrusted my healthcare to Chiropractic since the age of 21. At the age of 16 I was in a bad car accident and shortly after that I started working in industries that are probable to injuries and wear and tear on the body. Throughout the years I have suffered serious back problems and pain along with having two carpel tunnel surgeries from the damage I did to my wrists.
Dr. Joe at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic was the first Chiropractor to show me I do not need surgery, pain pills and a lot of time spent in physical therapy when I injure myself. He recently helped me recover from a back injury and his amazing skills, dedication and patience helped me to recover in a quicker time frame then past injuries and I was really happy I didn’t have to take one pain pill!
Dr. Joe and Good Vibrations Chiropractic go beyond your normal Chiropractic visit. They are on the journey with you every step of the way in Health and Peace of Mind. I can never thank Dr. Joe enough for the positive impact he has had on my life with his care, and weekly articles that are always interesting, educational and keeping me on track to always take care of myself which is hard to do in the busy world we live in.
Thank you Dr. Joe & Good Vibrations Chiropractic!!!

I completed San Diego La Jolla 1/2 Marathon!
Thanks for fitting me in today and taking the time to help me out. I feel pretty amazing right now, and my right leg feels 1 inch longer :) I completed the La Jolla Half- UNINJURED!!!! I stuck to my conservative walk/run plan, and it worked! I finished the last 3.1 Mile (5K) in 25:12, which wasn’t too shabby considering I was being careful!
THANK YOU! If it weren’t for you, I am sure I would still be on the sidelines, trying to figure out what was wrong with my hip and leg. Your Good Vibrations Chiropractic methods have helped me tremendously, and I am excited to see what results I can produce in my health for the future. – DC

I refer all my friends to this chiropractor!

Chiropractic & My Healthy Pregnancy:
I’m currently 8 months pregnant and have been experiencing quite a bit of discomfort, especially since I stand all day at work. My husband and I came to see Dr. Joe at Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic last night and the experience was great!!! The office is a warm, inviting space with lots of charm. Dr. Joe made sure to spend plenty of time talking about our bodies and answering any questions we had. He offered a wealth of education and when it came to adjusting us, it was a great, comfortable experience. Last night was the first night I slept soundly in a long time!!!

I have had 3 visits with him and already notice a difference in my patience level, clarity of mind and stamina at work. Thank you! I would also like to share with those of you who dislike having your neck adjusted (I was one of you) that Dr. Joe had such a gentle hand and approach to his adjustments that you’ll surprisingly find it a relaxing experience ? Thank you! – Danielle

Being aligned with life and the world goes beyond my spine. These chiropractors will show you how! – DM

‘Cause that’s what I feel when I walk into Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic in Kensington. Dr. Joe is amazing.

I’ve been going now for about 5-6 weeks and I’ve experienced marked changes in my flexibility and mobility, as well as moods. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Joe, his wife Stacey and Good Vibrations Family Chiropractic. – Max

Amazing Chiropractic Experience!
I’ve only been adjusted by Dr. Joe for about a month now but it didn’t even take that long to see the results from the great work of this chiropractor. I was not in much pain when I began visiting Good Vibrations Chiropractic but I was hoping to improve my athletic abilities and help alleviate pain in my shins that would come from running often. My running times, which have not changed in about 4 months, have improved by about 13 seconds per mile and I no longer have the shin pains. I’m finding that I have more energy throughout the day and have been better able to deal with stress that comes along in everyday situations. – CC

Dr. Joe Cares About the Healing Process
I heard a quote recently, “you should be able to hug your doctor”. The point being that you should have a doctor who not only is good at his/her job, but who also cares about the healing process. Dr. Joe is a chiropractor who hugs you when you walk in, and it sets the tone for what is less of an office visit and more of a health and wellness visit. – Vince
